Awhile back I discovered this delightful brand of wine and was instantly smitten with it's cute name - cupcake. I was further delighted by it's taste and especially favored the Chardonnay. But a few days ago I was strolling through the store and spied the familiar logo with Red Velvet printed on the bottle. What?! Red Velvet cupcake wine? Now this I had to try.
The label describes this wine well: "This wine shows a heady nose of chocolate, deep rich blackberries, red fruits, and a creamy mocha finish that is unmistakable in its intensity and length. It's reminiscent of a blackberry chocolate cupcake with a mocha coulis."
I tasted it and agree that the mocha finish is unmistakable. I'm no wine expert but I enjoyed the fact that it doesn't end on an oaky or bitter note but definitely has layers and the coffee taste. I think this wine is delicious on it's own and would also be yummy served with dark chocolate for dessert. I grabbed this bottle for about $9 which is a great price for a fun wine such as this!
Go out and try some for yourself and give me your review!
