External Reviews for Layer Cake
Inky purple. Jammy blueberry and mulberry aromas are complicated by notes of spicecake and cracked pepper. Lush, creamy and slightly sweet, offering bitter cherry and dark berry compote flavors and slow-mounting tannins. The tannins keep the jammy fruit in check, and a finishing note of cherry skin adds a refreshingly bitter edge.
Smooth and round, almost black in color, with the generous currant and black plum flavors poking through a layer of fine tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 20,000 cases made. -HS Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2009 Layer Cake Shiraz 750ml
Dark, dense and creamy. Aromas of spice, anise, tobacco and mocha emerge from the inky Shiraz; an explosion of dark berry, black cherry, exotic spices and chocolate. Complete from attack through a long, lingering finish. - Winery
Fully ripe, easy-drinking Shiraz, offering a multitude of fruit nuances - plum, black cherry, blueberry - plus just a hint of tarriness. Tannins are silky and unobtrusive, making this a wine to drink now and over the next few years.
WE 91pts. - Winemaker Notes - Dark, dense and creamy, complex aromas of black plum, Bing cherry, blackberry and pepper merge with licorice, tobacco, mocha and dark chocolate. This is one inky Shiraz; an explosion of dark, super ripe, wild blackberry, with a touch of cigar box finishing with a m lange of exotic spices. A pure fruit bomb complete from attack through a long, lingering finish. Chefs will save this cake for themselves
Complex and textured well beyond what the modest price point would suggest, this is a full-on Shiraz, loaded with plum and black cherry fruit, and with enough tar, coffee and olive to retain your interest sip after sip. It's warm and velvety on the finish.
Ripe and dark, with plum and spice flavors that sail through the round, velvety finish. Drink now through 2012.

This is one inky Shiraz; an explosion of dark super ripe wild blackberry, touch of cigar box finishing with a melange of exotic spices. A pure fruit bomb...complete from attack through a long, lingering finish. Chefs will save this cake for themselves...
