2009 Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon

I hope I get to meet winemaker Adam Richardson sometime – he seems like he is as much fun as the wines he makes.

A native Australian, Adam launched the Cupcake Vineyards line of wines in 2008. With a slogan like “Go ahead, live deliciously,” how can you go wrong?

Aged in American oak barrels, this wine is a medium red color with a fruity aroma. A bit tart on first taste, this wine mellows after a few sips or swirls.

Smooth, soft tannins, fruit forward flavor and a spicy finish make this an excellent everyday wine. Blackberries greet you on each sip. A great price to quality ratio.
