Cupcake Red Velvet 2011 Red Wine, $6.99-$10.99, 88 points, is a very dark ruby red to purple in color.
The aroma is an interesting bread-dough with a hint of lilac and sweet strawberry licorice.
The nearly full body has good acidity, mild tannin, a round mouth-feel, and carries interesting flavors of sweet sarsaparilla (I try and keep some Maineroot. Sarsaparilla around for the purpose of reminding my taste-buds just what it is I'm tasting), chalky plum, with a hint of bubble-gum, but for me, it works!
These flavors trail moderately long into a rather boring finish, but overall, this is a tasty red wine.
