Layer Cake 2008 Shiraz Wine Review by Billy
Nose:jammy blackberry and plum with some spice and loam
Palate: Limp and flabby in the mouth
Finish: weak finish
Overall: I paid about 17 for this and an unsatisfied. For a South Australian Shiraz at that price point it should have a bigger mouth feel instead of being like a cold wet noodle. The big fruit forward nose is heavy on the fruit and too light on the spice that should accompany a big shiraz.
If you see this in the bargain wine rack, maybe think about buying it, otherwise pass it by.
Either way, raise a glass!
