Wine Review: 2014 Black Forest Decadent Red, Cupcake Vineyards

img_1247

All wine tastes better in New Mexico, that’s just a given.

In typical Cupcake fashion, this wine has a lot of oak and bears little resemblance to cake.

Dark Cherry, mocha, and oak. Lots of oak. Jammy finish.  If you like Cupcake Red Velvet, the Decadent Red is similar but just a little deeper and darker. I wouldn’t describe Red Velvet as jammy but Decadent Red certainly is.

13.5% alcohol. No headache. My only complaint is that the bottle is too small, disappearing at an alarming rate at the end of a stressful week.

My advice: buy two bottles, you’re gonna need them.
