The ideal gift! Buy the best merlot online. Price and reviews available for Cupcake Vineyards Merlot Red Wine – From California – 750ml Bottle. Our Merlot is a jammy, elegantly textured wine crafted from luscious grapes found along Californias desirable Central Coast. The warm, sunny days and cool nights allow for a long growing season that makes for a full-bodied, yet smooth wine with ripe red fruit aromas and flavors. The grapes for this wine are cool fermented in a slow process to help retain aromas and fruit characteristics.
