    Well this is my review of the Cupcake Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2013 BOY is this wine worth it! I had looked at Cupcake a few times and really wasn’t sure if I wanted to try it…I’m not sure why…maybe the sweet name threw me off, it suddenly becoming ubiquitous, I’m not sure…but it was on sale one day and I said okay, it’s time-- Marlborough in New Zealand has such a good rep…let’s see…. My oh my….starting as always with the bouquet—it is rich and vibrant! It is what you want the bouquet of a Sauvignon Blanc to be….the bouquet is so fresh you want to dive right in…you do and you get a vibrant fresh mouthful….with a clean finish and excellent taste…serve very chilled, the taste on the tongue is smooth….the flavor is rich….and although I balked when I read their description of…” culminating in a long, creamy finish.”—to me creamy finishes are for chardonnays! But not a Sauvignon Blanc, that I want a cleaner, crisper finish—but I was wrong! Yea! This smooth Blanc does have a creamy finish and it’s done with panache. Its full mouth feel but with distinct smoothness and richness. This is a good wine.
