SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Awesome! This is the kind of wine that as soon as I taste it, I can't wait to write and talk about it. I've tasted every vintage of the Layers and it never disappoints. So few wines deliver this kind of quality year after year. Low alcohol. Tremendous flavor. Elegant and vibrant. I love this wine! Retails for around $16 a bottle. Find this one. It is a hidden gem.
