Layer Cake Sea of Stones Red 2015Layer Cake
Origin: Mendoza, Argentina
Grape: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot
The Layer Cake Sea of Stones red blend is extremely dense and concentrated. Opaque purple, almost black in color, the aroma is full of ripe black fruit, grilled bread, pencil lead, wet stones, lavender, blueberry pie, and black cherry. On the palate there is layer upon layer of savory fruit, spice notes, espresso, and dark chocolate as well as rich, creamy texture. The aromas and flavors carry on long after the wine is gone from your mouth, the finish taunting you to have another sip.
All of the grapes we use are allowed to ripen thoroughly on the vine, a key to the exceptional quality we achieve. Each hand-harvested cluster is de-stemmed and sorted – also by hand. Each varietal lot is treated as its own wine, then when each lot is ready, the Sea of Stones blend is assembled to create a wine that emulates the best of what the Sea of Stones Estate has to offer.
