Discover the allure of Argentina with a deep, delectable Malbec from Mendoza. A heady, yet dry nose of blueberries and leather opens up to a palate of intense chocolate, mocha and plums. A soft velvety texture and hint of spice leads to a finishing note of toasted oak. We carefully select the best fruit from our Mendoza vineyards, picking dark and delicious berries that mature gradually and gracefully. Rooted in stony alluvial soil, the grapes are harvested, gently crushed and left to ferment slowly with extra skin contact. Aging in oak barrels results in a full, soft, intense and rich Malbec.
It pairs well with Argentina’s national plate: Steak, a mushroom and bacon salad, or even your favorite chili recipe.
Where warm days give way to cool nights, and grapes hang on the vines slowly soaking in the sun, there’s no better way to celebrate the small moments of joy, every day. Inspired by the indulgent treat that evokes joy and anticipation, Cupcake Vineyards offers an extensive portfolio of finely-crafted wines to help you celebrate your everyday moments of joy. Our winemaker explores vineyards all over the world - including in our backyard, California’s Central Coast - to source some of the best grapes possible for Cupcake wines, then works in our cellar to let their natural characteristics shine through in our wines.
After introducing a small selection of fruit-forward, creamy wines in 2008, we’ve grown our portfolio to include a wide variety of delicious red, white and sparkling wines. From California classics to favorites from some of the world’s preeminent grape-growing regions, our wines all share a balanced style that makes it easy for you to switch from one Cupcake wine to the next, celebrating the small moments of joy.
