Layer Cake Primitivo 2011
Layer Cake Primitivo has been one of my favorite wines to open after a hard day at work. I love the cherry and berry aroma. It is very soothing. The wine itself is very fruity, more than I usually care for. Not much on tannins either. This is strickly a wine that I will have prior to dinner, certainly not with a fatty meat. At $16 a bottle, it is a good value and a good wine to take to a party because it will have a broad range of fans.
Interesting wine. Dark fruit on the nose and when drank the dark fruit continues. Very Zin like, but the finish is quite acidic. Truely Zin in the European style. ABU 13.5%
Seemed like an alcohol soft drink to me. Sorry, I cannot recommend it at any price. This only goes to show that taste is to each their own.
We love this wine - it's on our regular house wine rack for company. Beautiful smooth taste, before and after, a noticeably good wine for the price.
the 2008's are shipped and drinking every bit the flesh-bucket and consequently flying off the shelves. Of the Layer Cake stable, the Primitivo simply barks in Italian and reminds of the stories told by my grandfather who made jugwine in the bath tub from Zinfandel grapes bought by the box car from California in the 1920's. Except this stuff is just a hilarious celebration of Zin fruit and a winemaker's presence of mind. Pass the carciofi, please.
For someone with little experience with wines this was the best wine I have tasted so far. There were definitely layers of flavors. From the look to the smell through to the flavor you would never guess this was a $15.00 bottle of wine.
External Reviews for Layer Cake Primitivo
Layer Cake Primitivo comes right at you with huge, inky black fruit, spice and white pepper, layered and rich in the mouth with jammy black cherries, truffles, espresso and dense, creamy texture. Always in the background are hints of the old seabeds that are the Puglia terroir. This is by far the most versatile wine in the Layer Cake lineup; the big power makes it work with all kinds of meats and roasts, and the soft textures and sweet ripe fruit make it one of the few red wines that works amazingly well with spicy foods.
