Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Central Coast, CA - $10

This California Cab is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Syrah, 2% Merlot, and 2% Petite Sirah. It retails for $12 on the winery's website, but I found it for $10 at Western Beverages next to Costco. It won Silver Medals in 2010 at all of the following competitions:
  • San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
  • Critics Challenge International Wine Competition
  • Monterey Wine Competition
  • Pacific Rim Wine Competition
  • Florida State Fair Wine Competition
I really enjoyed this wine with our soup tonight. It paired nicely with the elements in the soup, but was solid enough to stand up to the hearty soup (which was really more like a stew). Elegant and smooth, this wine is a great choice for this price point and will be accessible to a wide range of people! Can't wait to go buy more bottles!

An easy choice for everyday drinking!
