The nose showed blackberry jam on toast, vanilla, sweet spices and a hint of pine. On the palate, it was soft with vibrant acidity, ripe wild berries, cola and pepper assaulting the senses, which turned to sour blackberry on the finish.

Spicy black pepper with red and black berry nose. Earthy on the palate with a strong tar and black olive component. Dark berry flavor with some cedar. Better with food for sure. Strong acid and tannin. 88 pts. 12/29/12

I routinely scamper away from wine at this price point but found myself alone with a glass of it at a family gathering during the recent holiday. Very impressed by what it brings to palate. Earthy grip, dirt, rocks, sand, gravel, all good, especially for such a low priced wine. Some fruit but complexities are the star. Even detected southern Dominican cigar wrapper and variety of spices on finish. Bravo, Layer Cake, Bravo.

I had a singer that used to say "It's as smooth as a mayonaise sand which" Well...It's not quite that smooth...but it ain't bad either

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

2011 was an unusual year in South Australia. The 2010 drought finally ended, leading into a cooler than average growing season. For Shiraz, slower development means deep, rich, concentrated flavors while still maintaining great balance and acidity. The aromas of cocoa, warm spice and dark fruit are very powerful from the first sniff. In the mouth, the wine is layered with rich blackberry, dark cherries and hints of dark, creamy chocolate ganache. The finish lingers on, hanging on your palette while the fruit and spice flavors slowly change and fade.
