Wine of the Week: Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (CA) $12

By April 3, 2012

Follow me on:

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.
