When we set out to make Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon the goal was the same as the other Layer Cake red wines: find great vineyards that allow us to make a rich, delicious wine that tastes like $50, but costs less than $20. We traveled across the best regions of California, sourcing the highest quality fruit possible. The diversity of the vineyards we sourced from allow us to make a final blend that expresses the concentration, complexity and richness Layer Cake fans have come to expect.
Grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced across California’s wine country, imparting aromas and flavors of chocolate covered cherries, rich, dense black fruit and giving the wine beautiful mineral characteristics, while maintaining acidity that is bright and fresh.
This Cabernet Sauvignon truly expresses the depth and complexity of the grape. Perfumed with violets and wild berries, it shows strong varietal characters and rich, ripe plum fruit. Seamless and elegant, this wine shows big black fruit on the palette, fine grain soft tannins and a long coffee chocolate finish.
