See my written review below . . . (Click Title to access written reviews and to leave comment)

2009 Cupcake Vineyards, Chardonnay (US) SMELL: Melon Cantaloupe, Pineapple, apple and a little lime. Subtle Oak, coconut, butterscotch. TASTE: Melon, Pineapple, hint of apple, a little disjointed, some bitter / sour rind flavors… Bees wax, hints of honey. Short wine finish. Hints at yummy residual sweetness. Fun casual party wine.  SUMMARY: OK (not great value) ($15.00)

2008 Cupcake Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon (US) SMELL: Simple Cab Sauv, Cherry skin, currents, green bell pepper, peppered meat.  TASTE: Cherries, black currents, some green bell pepper. Peppered back end, strong tannic backbone for strength.  SUMMARY: OK (not great value) ($15.00)
