Talkin Bout Layer Cake

Posted by jamessulis, Feb 14, 2016.

Most of you know my taster prefers a nice Malbec. Well I have since graduated to many other varietals in the past 2 years. Cabs if course, Old Vine Zins, Oregon Pinot Noirs (the heavy ones), Sauvignon Blanc's from NZ, and some tasty Chards.

Well the other day I noticed Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon, and wow being as I love Layer Cake Malbec (yum de di yum) I thought I'd try their Cab. On the tasting notes of mocha, Bing cherries, chocolate they are exactly right however, this wine is not very good. It is not as deep with a lasting taste and depth. I tasted it before putting the Porterhouse on the Grill and immediately decided it was not appropriate to waste the steak on a mediocre wine so I prepared myself a salami/swiss on sourdough (I was somewhat satisfied with the pairing but not enchanted).

My summary is that if you see something you might like in the liquor store, absolutely go for it, it may be your next favorite................after this one, I guess I'll keep on trying the thousands of choices that are always out there..

Well James, you hit the nail on the head there.  (trying that thing you might like!).  Trouble is, for every ten you try, three might be a re-visit.  Layer Cake is like Cameron Hughes I think.  They just buy grapes and make wine.  I believe it's decent, but I don't buy it because in Canada it's pushing $30.  I'd rather buy Washington wine any day.

I don't believe we've tried a Layer Cake wine in our search for the perfect wine, but you never know what is going to float your boat until you try it.
