    Winemaker Notes

    The aromas of cocoa, warm spice and dark fruit are very powerful from the first whiff. In the mouth, the wine is layered with rich blackberry, dark cherries and hints of dark, creamy chocolate ganache. The finish lingers on, hanging on your palate while the fruit and spice flavors slowly change and fade.

    Layer Cake El Camino Vineyard Winery Image

    At Layer Cake, we work directly with the farmers to grow the fruit we 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.

    It all started in South Australia, when we met a few growers in a pub. We swapped stories over a few pints, then went to walk around some vineyards. We knew we could make great wine from these vineyards, and with diligence, sell the wines at a price that would over-deliver compared to the offerings on the retail shelves, so we were off to the races.

    During a visit to Puglia to investigate the flavors behind Carole Meredith’s recent studies showing that Primitivo is indeed identical to Zinfandel, we discovered the largest cache of old-vine Zinfandel grapes in the world. We knew Layer Cake Primitivo was meant to be.

    Argentina is now known as the best place on the planet to grow Malbec, hands down. We met some fantastic family growers to work with, the Layer Cake Malbec was born, and we just can’t make enough to satisfy the ravenous appetite you all have for it.

    We came back to our homeland, Napa, next and decided it was time to seek out some special vineyards here as well. Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay were naturals to make here, as we have many friends with excellent vineyards to nurture and turn into Layer Cake Wines.

    The bottom line is, we look not only at places where you could make wine, but places where we want to make wine: steeped in history, diverse foods, sweeping landscapes and interesting people. We seek out the best varieties a region has and then find a way to make a great wine for you at a price that makes you able to buy more.

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
