Cupcake Vineyard Makes an Irresistible Copy

MmmmMmmmMmmmm… Who would have thought that a winery can produce such a delicious copy?  Or maybe that’s just an understatement. Scrumptious is a better fit.

With a name like Cupcake, Cupcake Vineyard found more than just the attention coming from their name.  A wine lover (or casual taster) can find their mouth watering just by reading the labels on the wine bottles.  The winery offers 9 different flavors.  All of which have 9 different tantalizing copies.

Read these examples and see for yourself…

Wine Glass Merlot
With smooth and supple tannins this is a soft, silky Merlot shows bright cherries followed by  espresso mingling into a plush, silky mocha finish.

Sauvignon Blanc
Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc comes from the cool Marlborough valley of New Zealand. Here the  grapes mature slowly, giving them complexity and a vibrant zing, reminiscent of your grandma’s  lemon chiffon cupcake. The flavors are integrated, delighting the senses with Meyer lemons, Key  limes and a finish that awakens the appetite. This wine pairs well with oysters on a half shell or with a rich and succulent Lobster Risotto.

Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah is big flavorful red wine that has deep Californian roots, but is neither Petite, nor Syrah like. Our Petite Sirah is comes from the Central Coast whose cooler weather allows the berries to develop soft fruit without the harsh tannins that sometimes accompany these little berries. This wine starts with aromas of boysenberry and blueberries, then evolving into flavors of spice accentuated by rich dark chocolate. With a creamy, rich body, this wine finishes in a long and soft manner. Pair with juicy pork tenderloin with a Petite Sirah reduction.

Now let’s be honest.  After just reading those descriptions, your head is exploding with imagination from the first smell of the wine to the taste in your mouth and finally sliding down your throat.  One word can describe it: sinful.  And yet so delightful.

It’s time to take take those wine glasses out and toast to an irresistible copy.
