Layer Cake Malbec 2007
I'm leery of wines with cute names and this one, so to speak, takes the cake. Still, this Argentine red is a nice enough wine. It exhibits the usual plum, dark berry and chocolate to be found in Malbecs grown in the Mendoza valley, along with an element of spice. The only thing to be held against it is a slight, not entirely pleasant, hint of break-up in the aftertaste. But, at the present sale price of $8.99, a good value.
