Tasted from a plastic cylindrical cup at a trade show. Quite sweet, definitely off-dry, full-bodied, initial inviting aroma of fresh bread and fruit, on the palate had ripe rich sweet fruit, a dash of complexity (spice, earth or fig, layered fruit), and a decent finish. Hard to get around the gummy sweetness (not syrupy, just not dry to me). Probably just fine for the party circuit, and the price was good (no charge).

I'm not a huge fan of Merlot but for $8 or $9 I paid for it, this wine is all cherries and cinnamon, two flavors I just love. I suspect Cupcake might be adding some spice to make their wines so tasty, but everything I've tried with the Cupcake label has been excellent. I almost want to go higher than 4/5 but I guess the wines are just not complex enough to earn a higher score. For the price I don't think you can do better than anything with the Cupcake label. I would put any Cupcake wine I've tried recently right up there with Clos du Bois, another great label that is usually $15, versus Cupcakes $9 price tag.

Luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and spices including clove and nutmeg. The addition of complementary varietals contributes to a velvety mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Mirassou California Merlot displays luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and brown spices. The addition of Zinfandel and Syrah varietals contribute to a full-bodied mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years if carefully cellared. Finished Wine Offering fresh fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, balanced with elegant toasty aromas and hints of spice, Mirassou California Merlot is a bright expression of California's most celebrated growing regions
