Cupcake Vineyards Red Velvet 2009, CA - $10


We purchased this wine to share with D's parents during dinner at their house. It's a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and cost $10/bottle at Sprouts.

Aroma - deep rich fruit
Taste - deep rich fruit, smooth, slightly sweet

This is the first Cupcake wine that I haven't really liked. We had it with salad and tortellini soup, and it really overpowered both dishes. Too bad, but at least Cupcake has a lot of other great wines to choose from!
