Cupcake Merlot

Region: California

Winemaker's Notes:  Ruby color. Bright, earthy, fruity oaky aromas of cherry, cocoa, vanilla, and cassis with a creamy, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a warming, distinctive, medium-long dark cherry, vanilla, currant, and rich earth finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. Merlot for the cabernet lover with classic cherry-vanilla-cassis and rich earthiness, but with supple, silky, fine merlot tannins.
