The wine has a dense, purple core with a brilliant red rim. Black fruit is abundant in the nose followed closely by anise, chocolate and very pleasant touches of spice. Soft, lush and fragrant, Layer Cake Malbec is an intense mouthful of fruit-driven wine, finishing with very soft tannins.
(From «nv» Vintage) A powerhouse of lush black fruit, silky cocoa, black spice and cream, wrapped around blackberry, cherry and ripe plum in the nose. Sweet anise, hints of tobacco, black chocolate, more cherries and exotic spices, layers of jam follow on the palate. Pure, rich and very elegant, this wine will stand and perform anytime you think of a cabernet and want something just a little more exotic.
just opened very smooth start, nice flavor a little rough end but immediately drinkable. After an hour, very smooth finish, too. Not too sweet but mellow. Very tasty. Lighter than some Malbecs but distinctively one. Also good w/o food. Excellent buy, would have again.
earthy, with a hint of chocolate, Adam loves it. didn't go great with the robusto or gruyer. Needs a soft or more subtle cheese
