Finally some time to update. I actually tasted one of the 2006 Cupcake Merlot's myself the re-tasted with a friend who by the way only drinks merlot. Nice wine for the 8.99 price (normally $13.99).
In the glass I could smell red berry, plum, coffee and spicy oak.
Once in the mouth this was a smooth wine which gave me a cherry/plum flavor at the start and right before the finish a quick hint of chocolate followed by oak and an earthly ending. Decent wine offering from Cupcake.
