What do you get when you put together a rebel California winemaker with high-quality malbec grapes from a great harvest in Mendoza? The answer is a powerhouse of a New World wine, bursting with concentrated jammy flavor and hints of garam masala and clove that linger a satisfyingly long time before disappearing without a trace. Kudos to Jayson Woodbridge! (AV 90, http://argovino.com/?p=1047)

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

Pure, rich and very elegant; a powerhouse of lush black fruit, silky cocoa, black spice and cream, wrapped around blackberry, cherry and ripe plum. Layered and complex with a nose to linger over, a finish that never ends. Sweet anise, hints of tobacco, black chocolate, more cherries and exotic spices, layers of jam. This wine will stand and perform anytime you think of a Cabernet and want something just a little more exotic. Born at the base of the Andes and fed by the purest spring waters...I love this wine. - Winery

The fruit for Layer Cake Malbec comes from a vineyard that is flanking the Mendoza River in Argentina -a rocky terrain, strikingly similar to that of Chateauneuf du Pape in the Rh ne Valley. The once 5-mile- wide Mendoza River is now mostly vineyard, abundant with some of Argentina s most pristine Malbec vines.

The Layer Cake Malbec has a dense, purple core with a brilliant red rim. Black fruit on the nose followed by anise, chocolate and spice. Soft tannins; lush with an intense mouth full of fruit.
