Red Velvet Cupcake Wine- Heart Healthy Happy Hour

redvelvetwine Red Velvet Cupcake Wine  Heart Healthy Happy HourIt’s Happy Hour!  Cheers to the health benefits of Red Wine!  In moderation (two glasses/day for those men out there and one/day for my Divas) – it has been studied to be heart healthy.  Red wine has antioxidants which may help prevent heart disease by increasing levels of “good” cholesterol and protecting against artery damage.

Many researchers agree that red wine appears to help your heart. It’s possible that antioxidants, such as flavonoids or a substance called resveratrol, have heart-healthy benefits.  Resveratrol in red wine could be what helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reducing LDL cholesterol levels (the bad guys) and prevents blood clots.


I admit, I’m a sucker for a pretty label and a snazzy cool name when buying wine.  It’s sort of like choosing a paint color.  You don’t want the name to sway you, but how can you resist painting your bathroom the color “Sea Salt” vs. “Blue Green #123.

Anyway, My latest find is Red Velvet by Cupcake Vinyards.

A couple weeks ago, I hosted a Girl’s Night at my house “Cupcakes, Cocktails and Crazy Hats.”   So, of course, when I went to the liquor store I was on a mission to pick up some wine made by the Cupcake Vineyards located in Monterey County, California.

Cupcake Red Velvet is a fabulous blend of 47% Zinfandel, 29% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petite Sirah grapes.  This awesome combo gives this wine and amazing aroma, flavor, and smooth finish.  Delicate, Soft and Smooth are the first adjectives that came to mind after my first glass.  And Red Velvet did not have a bite like some red wines I’ve had.   It’s also not too sweet- in fact a bit of a dry finish.

While I am not a  wine expert  Red Velvet Cupcake Wine  Heart Healthy Happy Hourand won’t claim to be (thus the video by Underdog Wine).  I’ll leave my description simple as is.

It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed a Red Wine as much as this one and I look forward to having a glass with a Red Velvet Cupcake or some Dark Chocolate. The other awesome fact- Red Velvet wine is priced at $12-$14 per bottle and tastes like a $50 bottle.  AND did I mention I got it on sale at our local liquor store for $7.99- score!

Enjoy… 

* This is simply a wine I love.  In no way have I been paid or given free product to tell you about this wine.  I am an affiliate with wine.com where you can purchase this fabulous vintage.  Also, note while a glass of Red Wine may have some health benefits,  too much alcohol can have many harmful effects on your body- Keep it all in Moderation friends and Eat & Drink Right!
