Imagine someone taking your favorite baked dessert and pouring it into a bottle, combining it with some other equally amazing flavors, packaging it, and selling it for all to enjoy. Well, that is a way to describe some amazing new wines made and distributed by a place called “Cupcake Vineyards.” There are multiple flavors made by this rather new wine company, and they are all geared towards the younger generation. The idea of these wines is to combine the well-loved flavor of chocolate with the delicious flavors of different fruits and berries. Since they are very sweet wines, it is not the best idea to actually sit down and drink it while eating a red velvet cupcake or sweet dessert. Instead, it can be enjoyed with simple flavors, such as a regular cheeseburger or a juicy steak.
Cupcake Wine – What Does It Taste Like?
Cupcake Vineyards strive to craft the richest, smoothest, and most elegant wines on the market. One of their full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon boasts soft tannins with fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry, and cassis. These dark fruits combine with the tastes of cocoa and toasty oak and the wine ends with a smooth, silky finish. If a description like that doesn’t make your mouth water, what will? It seems that only good things could come of joining chocolate with fruit. This is one wine that is relatively new, and that a lot of people have yet to try. It is going on my list of wines to try very, very soon. How about yours? Word on the street is that it is only about ten bucks a bottle, so it is price-friendly for the wine drinker who does not like to spend a lot. With the economy as it is, finding wines that are both fabulous and affordable is exciting!
Cupcake Wine – What’s In A Name?
Perhaps the most enjoyable thing about Cupcake Wine is its name. It is not hard to pronounce, it does not sound too sophisticated to attempt to know how to serve or cook with it, and it is named after a dessert! What more could we ask for? The marketing department associated with the Cupcake Wine vineyard surely deserves credit for enticing us. And not to be discriminatory, but it seems like a wine for the ladies because of its fun, flirty bottle and packaging. But for the fellas out there who love this wine, please take no offense as this is just a musing. Upon researching, the best reasoning I could find for choosing such a name was that the word cupcake would evoke positive and pleasant thoughts in the one potentially purchasing the wine, which could cause them to pick the wine and associate it with something delicious. It makes me think about other desserts. How would a cheesecake wine or a hot fudge wine be received? What about an apple pie wine? You get the picture. Whoever thought of this name was ingenious, and I’m sure, raking in the monetary benefits of a job well done.
