Wine Review: Laker Cake is a fun project made by Pure Love Wines. I had a chance to try a few of their new creations and the "Primitivo" was the one that I fancied and found the most intriguing. This dark ruby wine opens with a light raspberry like bouquet with a hint of bananas. Yes, bananas. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, smooth, nicely balanced, with juicy light raspberry like flavors with a touch of Boston Crème pie on the back palate. The finish is dry and lingers nicely for a little while. Have fun with this wine, I did. Cheers, Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine is opaque and purple-colored with a nose of jammy black cherry and blackberry fruit, truffles, tar, and spice. Warm and rich in the mouth; the ripe fruit is well supported by the depth of the structure.

Organic status: not organic

"Bottles of wines aren't like paintings. At some point, you need to consume them. The object of life is to die with no bottles in your cellar. To drink your last bottle of wine and go to sleep that night and not wake up."
