Pure Love Wines Malbec Layer Cake 2007

Member Review by enophiliac:

I give a big five glass thumbs up. It's not that it's one of the world's greatest wines; it's one of the world's greatest wines for a PRICE. I find that every time Jayson Woodbridge puts his hands into a project you are going to get something special; without exception his first release of the Malbec from Layer Cake has been extraordinary. Big, plump, lush, accessible and $15 a bottle. We felt like we were drinking a wine that would retail for double

  Layer Cake is a wine brand created by Jayson Woodbridge, winemaker of the cult California label Hundred Acre. The idea for the wine stemmed from nostalgic memories of Woodbridge’s childhood eating his grandmother’s cake. The story goes that his grandfather would pour a small glass of wine and explain, “The vines live in layers of soil just like the layers in Grandma’s cake; each layer bringing a different flavor.” Woodbridge saw that metaphor extending to life in general, everything with layers and complexity. Since Hundered Acre costs upwards of $350 in high demand, he decided to create an affordable wine (that was more in keeping with his grandfather’s sensibilities), with these layered elements of flavor and texture. The idea was to make an everyday wine of quality and not mass production.   The wines are sourced from around the world: Shiraz from South Australia, Malbec from Argentina, Primitivo from Puglia in Italy, Syrah from the Cote du Rhone in France and Cabernet from Napa Valley in California. These wines have themselves earned a large following, though are easily accessible from many retailers.  Read less
