Food Pairings for Cupcake Vineyards Zinfandel
Editorial Reviews for Cupcake Vineyards Zinfandel
Rather big and herbal on the nose but lovely ripe herbs all laid upon a base of sweet black currant and blackberry fruit supported by some cedary oak. Round, soft and a bit matte in the mouth this delivers slightly meaty and cocoa dusted black fruits with a subtle leathery edge. The acidity is a bit low for me, and the tannins rather soft but this rich, smooth style should prove to be very appealing. The backend shows black currant fruit which turns into sweet black cherry flavors on the slightly sticky and modest finish. A mini fruit bomb. 84pts
Cupcake Vineyards Lodi Zinfandel comes from head-trained vines grown in rich sandy loam soils. Head training is the ideal trellis for Zinfandel as it produces lower quantities of grapes with more intensity and higher sugar content. Warm days with cool afternoon breezes produce tiny fruit with intense jammy flavors and hints of spice and black pepper. All the clusters are gently harvested by hand to protect the berries.
Our Zinfandel is handcrafted with premium grapes from Lodi, California, one of the most well-known Zinfandel growing regions in the world. This fruity wine is filled with decadent flavors of blueberries, spice and ripe raspberry jam with a long finish that delights the plate. It’s reminiscent of a black forest cupcake with raspberry filling. Enjoy with sautéed Portabella mushrooms or a tasty beef barbecue.
