Winemaker Notes

The nose is reminiscent of Meyer lemons, preserved then diced up later in the year for seasoning in a meal, wet stones and Kaffir lime blossoms waft in and out as well. The wine builds in body and texture as it sits in your mouth. Layers of Kaffir lime, guava, andpineapple pour in at first, and then the light creamy texture of whipped lemon curd fills in the flavor palate. The finish is clean and crisp, lingering enough to make you want another sip… goahead, we'll make more next year, don't worry.

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Chardonnay is a serious wine for the money. Honey, almonds, smoke, hazelnuts and pears burst from the glass in this rich, broad shouldered wine. Jayson Woodbridge sources this fruit from vineyards in and around the Santa Lucia Highlands. I am not sure how he does it, but this is an absolutely gorgeous wine for the money.

Layer Cake
Winemaker Jayson Woodbridge learned about wine from his grandfather at an early age. "He told me the soil in which the vines lived was like a layer cake. The vines go down into the soil and pull up the different aromas and flavors in the soil, just like the layers of flavors in Grandma’s cake. 'Never pass up a layer cake', he would say. I always loved those words."

Woodbridge set out around the world to make wines of exceptional quality at a price everyone could enjoy. He found the best vines across four continents and, in honor of his grandfather, created Layer Cake.

Layer Cake works directly with the farmers to grow the fruit they work with. Our grapes are grown to exacting standards in some of the most diversely-layered vineyards around the world. They are handpicked, separated and fermented with care, then aged in French Oak. The character of each Layer Cake wine is influenced by the vineyard soil, which is layered like a cake… every layer tells a story.
