Wine maker notes
Sourced from vineyards on California’s Central Coast, our Merlot is big and bold. Full-bodied yet smooth, the wine shows flavors of red cherries that evolve into decadent levels of cocoa, spice and espresso as well as a smooth finish. Moderated by the Pacific Ocean, the unique topography and climate of the sun-drenched Central Coast produces world-class wines. Our Merlot grapes are cool fermented for a slow process that retains aroma and complexity. A regimen of pump-overs extracts soft tannins and color, and grape skins are pressed before reaching dryness to preserve a lush tannin structure. Aging in American oak barrels adds more richness and complexity.

Food pairing
This wine pairs well with pork tenderloin with a port-fig reduction sauce or a decadent chocolate molten cupcake.

Producer
Where warm days give way to cool nights, and grapes hang on the vines slowly soaking in the sun, there’s no better way to celebrate the small moments of joy, every day. Inspired by the indulgent treat that evokes joy and anticipation, Cupcake Vineyards offers an extensive portfolio of finely-crafted wines to help you celebrate your everyday moments of joy. Our winemaker explores vineyards all over the world - including in our backyard, California’s Central Coast - to source some of the best grapes possible for Cupcake wines, then works in our cellar to let their natural characteristics shine through in our wines. After introducing a small selection of fruit-forward, creamy wines in 2008, we’ve grown our portfolio to include a wide variety of delicious red, white and sparkling wines. From California classics to favorites from some of the world’s preeminent grape-growing regions, our wines all share a balanced style that makes it easy for you to switch from one Cupcake wine to the next, celebrating the small moments of joy. Cheers!
