Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 46% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache, 17% Tempranillo and 2% Carignane.

Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. Shiraz delivers fruit depth and structure, combining beautifully with the aromatics and spiciness of Grenache. Mourvèdre adds wild earthy notes to the blend and the firm, savoury character of Tempranillo melds together with the black cherry character of Carignan, to surround and soften the palate of this multi-dimensional wine. This wine perfectly complements a wide variety of game, Mediterranean influenced dishes and spicy Indian curries.

The color is a beautiful black cherry with aromas of dark plum, chocolate and savory black olive. The palate is a soft mouthfull of forest fruits with wild bramble undertones and a fine stylish finish. A quintet of a blend in perfect harmony!

Critical Acclaim

"Polished, focused and distinctive for the spice and tobacco accents to the supple core of red berry and cherry flavors, lingering easily on the generous finish. Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Tempranillo and Carignane. Drink now through 2015."

Style: Smooth & Supple
We have ordered this wine before. It is smooth and elegant in taste for pre-dinner socializing as well as sit-down tablecloth meals. We'd order it again.

Style: Earthy & Spicy
This wine was named appropriately - definitely has layers, which range from cherry to tobacco. I think it's more earthy and spicy than smooth, but not overly so. Long finish. Overall, pretty versatile - would make a good table wine. I'll buy it again.

Love this wine. Earthy with nice dark fruit notes. Some tannins but still quite smooth.

This was a nice red. Could have been a bit more smooth but not sure that's what they were going for. It was easy to drink and enjoyable but not sure I'd get it again - didn't stand out and there is so much wine to try!
