Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
California, $14.99 +744375

Forget the name (which might have been cute three years ago) and overlook the fact that these guys make 80,000 cases of this wine (that’s almost a million bottles for you English majors), and instead focus of the forgotten pleasures of basic California Cabernet: fleshy and fruit forward with a jammy, cherry bite and a strong American oak background. This is not for aging or for cooing over with your friends, and frankly, given it’s modest acidity, it’s better on its own than with food. But around a campfire this makes for a nice glass of wine-isn’t that enough?
