Cupcake Central Coast 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $6.99-$10.99, 86 points, is a medium-bodied dry red wine, though there is a bit of sweet red cherry late palate and on the finish.
The color is a slightly cloudy ruby with a clear outer rim.
The spicy grape aroma dominates and is profuse throughout the tasting experience, but just a hint of rubber was a little unpleasant.
I found good acidity and the tannin is mild, but this is a rough Cabernet, almost sharp.
Overall, for 7 bucks, this is not a bad everyday table wine, but maybe too spicy, and lacking the traditional "mouth-feel" of a Cabernet, maybe unappreciated by some at the table.
