The 2009 Layer Cake Cab from Jayson Woodbridge of Hundred Acre, brings a budget-friendly, everyday Cab to the table. This is not an overstated red wine on any front, but a vibrant, value-driven Cab that sources its fruit from Napa with an eye towards varietal integrity.
This Cabernet Sauvignon delivers exceptional ruby color, plenty of dark berry aromas with a swirl of tobacco mingled in a touch of earthiness. The palate profile exudes dark cherry, blackberry and a rich turn of mocha, the tannins are handled well, with an emphasis on integration and drinkability, the finish is well sustained. Overall this wine brings fans a remarkable wine experience from one of Napa's premier winemakers.
Give it a go with roasted lamb, grilled game, burgers, beef stew or smoked sausage.
