Very fresh fruited on the nose with dusty, chalky tones and a fair amount of oak. In the mouth this has solid acidity and just a hint of sugar supporting the orange creamsicle and lightly peachy fruit. There is nice richness and good length with a creamy finish. Very typical and solid California Chardonnay. 86pts

Fresh apples, lime, yeast, tea and dried leaves on a nose that smells a bit sweet. Very high acid help to cut through the noticeable sweetness on the palate. This is fruit driven and full of lemony and apply fruit, tastes much like fizzy Chardonnay. A bit coarse and rough and tumble but full of fruit and zippy acids. 86pts

The 2013 Sauv Bl is a bit light in extract. Citrus and slight Gardenia nose. Lemon in the mouth. Light color but good acid. Pleasant wine. My rating -- 83.

Kak - the label indicates flavors of butter cream and vanilla; serve with crab cakes. Really? I wouldn't ruin a crab cake with this. All I can taste is mildew dishrag. Chard is Nard - cracker please.

One of our favorite reds, period. We had the Cupcake Merlot for dinner tonight, and it is also very good--more tannins and spice.

Clean and crisp with a citrus bite! This wine is delicious especially paired with a sweet and creamy treat like cheesecake, or something more savory like an herbed and grilled wood plank salmon.

Being a fan of sauvignon blanc I was pretty disappointed when I cracked open this bottle. It was bitter and left an awkward after taste in my mouth. The hint of grapefruit was there. Semi dry and not overly sweet.

Our vineyard works hard to bring you the zestiest,most refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from the cool Marlborough Valley. Here the grapes mature slowly, giving them complexity and a vibrant zing, reminiscent of a lemon chiffon cupcake. The aromas are integrated, delighting the senses with flavors of Meyer lemons, Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite. Serve chilled with oysters on the half shell or with a rich, creamy lobster risotto. - Winery

At the northeastern tip of the South Island of New Zealand, Marlborough enjoys a temperate climate with high sunshine hours, moderate day temperatures and cool nights. The region is ideally suited to producing aromatic wines showing strong intensity of grape variety. The long cool season allows the grapes to mature slowly, giving them complexity and a vibrant zing reminiscent of a lemon chiffon cupcake! Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc is pale yellow-green in color. It is crisp and light with aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry and citrus and boasts rich flavors of Meyer lemons and Key limes. It is crisp and clean on a long finish that awakens the appetite.Enjoy Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc over the next 3-4 years with salmon, oysters, grilled vegetables, halibut, crab, chicken, Asian cuisine, and sushi.

A big, rich wine from California's Central Coast, our full and elegantly textured Chardonnay has decadent levels of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla. These layers melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice. This wine epitomizes the Central Coast's crisp and vibrant Chardonnay character. We use a malolactic fermentation to impart rich buttery flavor, then leave the wine sur lie to achieve a full, soft body. Aging for nine months in premium American oak barrels enhances the golden color, adds creamy texture, and injects nuances of subtle toasty oak and spice. - Winery

Rich and enticing, the Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon is a balance between generous profiles of fruit and oak. This full-bodied yet smooth Cabernet Sauvignon displays soft tannins, with primary fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plums. The dark fruits melt with the flavors of mocha and toasty oak before ending with a long and silky finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sourced from the South Island of New Zealand, this Sauvignon Blanc exhibits complexity and a vibrant zing. Flavors of Meyer lemons and Key limes integrate with hints of grapefruit, gooseberry and citrus, culminating in a long, creamy finish. Long, cool seasons in New Zealand’s Marlborough region allow our grapes to mature slowly and gain character and complexity. The grapes are harvested at night and gently crushed before undergoing cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. An extended fermentation sur lie adds richness and softness, complementing the fruit’s natural zest and acidity."-Producer
