Cupcake Pinot Noir 2011

9 Jul

I’ve seen Cupcake wine around but didn’t have the chance to try it until last week when I was visiting my grandparents. They had a Pinot Noir 2011 vintage. The wine is from California’s central coast and this bottle was 13% ABV. I’m not sure on the price but I don’t think it was over $20. It smelled of dark berries and cherries and had a pretty red, burgundy color in the glass. It tasted of red apples and strawberries. It didn’t have too much tannin and was a nice balance of sweet and dry.
