Layer Cake Malbec 2008
Wine Advocate Review Rated 91 Dense purple-colored with notes of blackberry, earth, roasted meats, and a hint of barbecue spice, this wine exhibits great fruit, delicious, full-bodied texture, silky tannins, and a long finish. It does taste more like a $30-50 bottle of Malbec than one that can be purchased for $15. It should drink nicely for at least 2-3 years. Wine Tasting Notes The wine has a dense, purple core with a brilliant red rim. Black fruit is abundant in the nose followed closely by anise, chocolate and very pleasant touches of spice. Soft, lush and fragrant, Layer Cake Malbec is an intense mouthful of fruit-driven wine, finishing with very soft tannins. Delicious!
This wine was one of the best ever. It was a bit spicy, fruity and had a lasting taste of mocha chocolate . Deep intense flavor that filled your nose and mouth with a wanting for more. I will definitely stock my wine rack with more. It's truly a Layer Cake for a sweet tooth!
Wow! This is a very different Malbec. It is slightly sweet with very mild tannins. Purple in color with spice and chocolate, leather, and lots of dark fruit. Purchased at $12.49.
Unexpected jammy fruit bomb. Smooth enough to compete with much more costly wines. Great value and fun to drink.
I consistantly enjoy Layer Cake Malbec, it has the soothing taste that agrees with my wine palate. The dark fruit taste is deep, the chocolate overtones and the long smooth ending with just a subtle tannin risidual feeling on the inside of the mouth and gums. For my money, I purchase Layer Cake and I seem to find it at wonderful prices here at out Safeway stores. Washington being federally controlled has few liquor stores so I am conveniently limited to the grocery store wine sections. Lefty- The Great Pacific Northwest
Scent was a bit earthy with a little spice. Dry, with flavors of oak and olive. Tangy finish.
Holy moly fruit goodness. Dark purple color, seriously deep berry action. LONG finish. DELISH
This name says all. Huge chocolate cake. Goes fast...
