The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 is a deep golden color, almost honey-like with a medium color-depth and nice clarity. The Paso a Paso Verdejo 2008 has some pretty early acidity that leaves quickly; after that the flavors emerge — mostly lemon and some mineral around the edges. The intensity is moderate and smooth; while the wine is dry overall there is a bit of sweetness to the flavor.
Cupcake Vineyards ages their Chardonnay in American oak barrels which allows the wine to undergo malolactic fermentation, a process that reduces the wine's natural acidity while creating creamy flavors in its place. This makes for a much better Chardonnay than you'd otherwise drink.
The taste of the 2008 Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc can be described as crisp and light, zesty and lemony. Although quite crisp, the acid is not overwhelming or distracting; on the contrary, it balances very nicely with the citrus, lemon flavors to make it a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc that is good to just sip alone or to pair with the right foods. The Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc is, however, better when cold - the balance between the acid and flavors declines noticeably as the wine's temperature rises.
Overall the Cupcake Sauvignon Blanc is "food friendly" and should work well enough with a wide variety of dishes, though it seems as though seafood is a popular combination.
As with the aromas, the taste of the Cono Sur Riesling is characterized by zesty, crisp, citrus flavors - primarily grapefruit, but with some mineral notes at the end. It's not especially complex and might prove to be a little on the sweet side for some but it has a nice, medium body and a moderate, short flavor intensity that works well in a variety of circumstances. It's acid levels work very well - strong enough to make the wine crisp, but not overwhelmingly so. You could sip it alone or pair it with food.
