Wine Review: “The Layer Cake Garnacha from Calatayud, Spain is rich and powerful, yet clean and balanced. Layered with aromas of ultra ripe black fruit. On the palate, the wine shows intense dark fruit with abackground of rich dark chocolate and fresh ground coffee with a long creamy finish.”
My Review: Garnet in color, and medium bodied.  Aromas of red fruit, particularly strawberry and cherry, and vanilla.  Tastes of earthy, astringent, and sour cherry.
