2005 Layer Cake Shiraz (Australia)

Very dark and almost black in color with very rich dark berry aromas. Upfront and “jammy” with prominent blackberry. Very full bodied with a medium long finish.

The retails for anywhere from $16 to $20 at a variety of wine stores around the city including Garnet on the Upper East side ($16 when in stock) and USQ Wine ($19).

I think this is good Shiraz and would give it a solid B overall if you like this particular style of Aussie Shiraz. The winemaker is Jayson Woodbridge, owner of Hundred Acre Winery in Napa and is a venture you can tell he is very serious about.
