4 out of 5 starsReviewed on June 03, 2015

I love my heavy oak, and this great value wine from Cupcake doesn't disappoint!  First sniff brings buttercream and citrus, first sip is smooth and full.  Very vanilla with a hint of spice as the palate lingers for a while.  The only downside is the ultra full body gets a little old a little quickly, so this is definitely a 2-night bottle.  Will update review on day 2! 

Really good wine at a really great price ~$15CND.
