Cupcake Vineyards Red Velvet

We first received this wine as a gift.
From the description on the bottle we thought it would be sweet . . . 

Experience a wine as rich, soft and elegant as red velvet. Our 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. {Cupcake Vineyard ~ California}

What a pleasant surprise that it was just to our liking . . . 
a dry blend with a nice warm finish.
a smooth easy drinking wine.
Who can say no to a "cupcake"?
{a bargain at $8.99}

If you invite us for a porch sit
we'll bring it along . . . .
