Velvety smooth. Very rich and creamy. Plum, vanilla, spicy. 15% alcohol
Jammy nose laced with cola. Thick and dense mouthfeel. Stewed dark fruits. Very heavy and unbalanced. High alcohol and very overripe. Not my style at all. Like being punched in the face. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 3/10/10
I really enjoyed it this time. Perhaps that last bottle needed time or aeration. Whatever the case, I liked the dense creamy complexity of this wine. Plum, cherry blackberry and pepper. - Tasted at Total Wine & More 4/3/10
Love the dark chocolatey goodness!
Reminded me of a fruit compote, just without the sweetness. Very smooth and easy to quaff, I think the WS tasting note hit it dead on.
Smells like caramel, pepper and acetone. It has a smooth flavor, and doesn't have the peppery bite of some shiraz.
Full bodied, very jammy, and spice on the finish.
External Reviews for Layer Cake Shiraz South Australia Australia
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 melange of exotic spices. A pure fruit bombcomplete from attack through a long, lingering finish. Chefs will save this cake for themselves.
