I was really hoping it wouldn't actually taste like a cupcake... but nope, it actually tastes like a cupcake.

This is a great wine to have while prepping dinner, full bodied but wonderful (especially if you taste the food while you are cooking) ;)

Really like this zin blend. Smooth with chocolate and cherry notes. One of my favorite for the price.

Quite sweet and perfumed. Smooth but just not for me.

Too sweet and fruity for a zin. Sour BlackBerry and a bit of chocolate. Bad zin, not a great red, nor my favorite cupcake variety. But could be good for the right food
