    Winemaker Notes

    The 2016 Cupcake Vineyards Merlot is a jammy, elegantly textured wine crafted from luscious grapes found along California’s desirable Central Coast. Aromas of ripe red berry, black pepper and spice fill the nose, while flavors of raspberry, cherry and cocoa mingle into a plush, silky finish. The soft tannins and color are carefully extracted from the grapes before being pressed to reach the right level of dryness. Finally, the wine is aged on American oak to enhance richness and complexity.

    Pair with slider-style mini burgers, garlic-parmesan roasted Brussels sprouts or romantic dinner dates.

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    With generous fruit and supple tannins, Merlot is made in a range of styles from everyday-drinking to world-renowned and age-worthy. Merlot is the dominant variety in the wines from Bordeaux’s Right Bank regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where it is often blended with Cabernet Franc to spectacular result. Merlot also frequently shines on its own, particularly in California’s Napa Valley. Somm Secret—As much as Miles derided the variety in the 2004 film, Sideways, his prized 1961 Château Cheval Blanc is actually a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
