Wine Review: I love when I find a Very Good Shiraz from Australia and it doesn’t cost that much. This new one called Layer Cake was a nice find at the Worcester Food and Wine Festival. This rich purple colored wine is about as dark a wine as you will find. It has a nice fruit forward bouquet. On the palate, this wine is rich, fruit packed, and quite a tasty wine. The mouthfeel of this wine is smooth, round, and well balanced. The finish is dry and slightly prolonged. Enjoy - Ken

Good wine ruins the purse; bad wine ruins the stomach.
