I could not have been more wrong. This is not a sweet wine. But don't get me wrong, it is a delicious wine. According to their site Cupcake Vineyards Red Velvet "is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah". I noticed a slight hint of chocolate with red and blackberries. The combination works out perfectly. The velvet in the name must come from the absolutely smooth, velvety finish.
Check it out, and let me know how you enjoyed you red velvet.
