Friday Wine Tasting…Layer Cake Malbec

February 8, 2013

SNOW DAY!!! What better way to spend the weekend enjoying some good wine by the fire with your special someone. Enjoy this yummy Layer Cake Malbec!

Wine of the Week:
Layer Cake Malbec

Winemaker’s Notes:

Layer Cake Malbec to ripen thoroughly on the vine. We tend to harvest four to six weeks after all other neighboring vineyards – a crucial element to the wine’s quality.  Each cluster, once harvested by hand, is then destemmed and sorted.

Tasting Notes:

A 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. Big, brooding, black fruit, then rich earth, truffles and dark cocoa are at the front.
