Layer Cake

Day 80.

My stomach has been blah again. My mouth has been blah again. My mouth was probably about a 6/7 today. I'm frustrated; won't lie. I haven't felt any tongue twitching in quite some time again. That's never a good sign. I don't feel very stressed, either, which is why it's odd to me that I don't feel so good.

I can't focus on negative today. Since I feel negative, I'm shifting my mind to think positive.

Layer Cake.

No, I'm not talking about a triple-chocolate cake with frosting and sprinkles (although that sounds great right now...of course, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, gluten and sugar free)! Ok, I digress....I have something even better - Layer Cake - the wine.


We were introduced to this wine by our friends a few weeks back. We have been hooked ever since. I was never a huge fan of red wine. Actually, until we moved to California some over two years ago, I was not a fan of wine at all. I started out drinking solely Champagnes or White Wines. Then, my palette began to have a yearning for reds over the whites.

That being said, I have a sweet tooth by nature. Naturally, then, I like port wine (in small doses). I've been looking for my perfect combination in a red wine. I wanted sweet, but not too sweet. And then I found it with Layer Cake.

Layer Cake gives a sweet taste when it hits the lips. But then it's not so sweet that you can only have a few sips (I could probably drink a bottle). Layer Cake tells my palate that it's a mix of fruits with a hint of chocolate. There are many different Layer Cakes: 2006 Layer Cake Shiraz, 2007 Layer Cake Malbe, 2006 Layer Cake Cotes du Rhone, 2006 Layer Cake Primitivo aka Zinfandel, 2007 Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, 2007 Layer Cake Primitivo/Zinfandel, Pulgia, Italy and 2008 Layer Cake Shiraz, South Australia. I have only tried the 2006 Shiraz; perhaps I'm scared to venture out from that now!

You can learn all about Layer Cake from their press release here or via there trade tools here.

You can buy Laker Cake from Vintage Point here.

My day for food was the same as yesterday. And still I feel the same. But not to worry, I'm going to go have me a glass of Layer Cake now! Cheers!


  1. So bummed we didn't get to try that when we were out visiting. Guess we'll go see if they sell it in MO!! If not then you know what to get us for Christmas. Hope the wine was a fabulous end to your day and you feel better. Happy 4th of July sister (and brother too!)-
