Cupcakes + Red Wine! | Vancouver Photography

For those of you who don’t know, I love a good glass of red.  I collect, sip and savor many reds from around the world, more dust on the bottle on the better.

I started collecting my favorite reds years ago with my father and I just may be coming close to his little stash! You may have read about my love for JLhor or the ever still popular for me Smoking Loon, but today I thought I would introduce a new little gem in time for spring…CUPCAKE.

Cupcake is a cabernet sauvignon from California’s central coast.  “Scrumptious flavors of decadent dark fruits, molten mocha and toasty oak, melt into a long, silky finish”.  And the kicker? Yup, it’s only  $14.00 a bottle!  Having a distinct palate for certain reds, I find it’s hard to find a decent bottle under $20.00 these days, but this one is a must try!

I do recommend letting it breathe or even decanting this one first to aerate the wine, especially for young wines, so if you can find a later year on any red, be sure to purchase that one first.

Looking for food pairings with this one? Anything goes really, from steak, to barbecues, chicken, baked brie or even a chocolate fondue…

Happy Spring Everyone! Enjoy the “cupcake”…
