Wine Review: This bright red colored red blend from Cupcake is a good value. It opens with an attractive cherry vanilla bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a nice blend of blueberry and red raspberry with hints of cherry cola. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Experience a wine as rich, soft and elegant as red velvet. The Red Velvet blend delivers over-the-top aromas of chocolate, deep dark blackberries and luscious red fruits that follow through to the palate. Finish with a hint of coconut and creamy mocha that shows unmistakable intensity and length. Red Velvet combines Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Each varietal adds distinct characteristics and lends structure, aroma and depth of flavor. We ferment each varietal separately before blending. Finally, a unique oak regime infuses creaminess.
