I'm still on the never ending quest to find drinks my wife will enjoy.  In the meantime, I get to review all sorts of random stuff I buy, thinking she'll like it, only to end up with a mostly full bottle that I'm left drinking by myself.  She'll still drink Coca Cola mixed with Disaronno, but that's about the only thing she'll have consistently. 

So, here's a review of the Beviamo Pink Moscato!


Admiral Nelson's Spiced Rum

Following in the footsteps of my last review (Shellback Spiced Rum), here we have another spiced rum... Admiral Nelson's!


Shellback Spiced Rum

Shellback Spiced Rum
40% Alcohol (80 Proof)

I found this spiced rum at the liquor store the other day and thought I would give it a shot.  Why the heck not?!  I haven't reviewed a whole lot of rum, but Shellback may be the start of a new trend.


Layer Cake Garnacha

I've been meaning to review this wine for awhile, but as luck would have it, LIFE HAPPENS.  People get busy.  Time slips away.  But low and behold, I finally have a minute to write up a formal review for the 2010 Layer Cake Garnacha.

If you've read through some of my wine reviews, you'll no doubt notice I've reviewed a lot of Layer Cake wines.  In fact, this is the last varietal of theirs I have to review.  I've even reviewed a couple different vintages of a few of theirs.  And ya' know what?  I have yet to be disappointed by any of their wines, especially for being wines under $20.  Click HERE to check out all the Layer Cake wines I've reviewed, there are some great ones.  Trust me.

So, this is the 2010 Layer Cake Garnacha made in Calatayud, which is in central Spain.  It pours a deep, almost bloody, ruby red color which is gorgeous.  Aromas are of red raspberries and a non-distinct earthiness.  Tasting brings a lush bouquet of more red raspberries, craisins, dark roasted coffee, toasty oak and smoked alder wood, with a smooth moderately tannic finish.

This wine is another example of the Layer Cake brand sourcing amazing products.  This is a wonderful wine and very befitting of red meat.  I had a couple glasses with a thick, juicy grilled ribeye.  Perfect pairing.

Drink This: if you want a great red wine that matches well with red meat.  Another great Layer Cake wine.
Don't Drink This: if you want what I consider to be Layer Cake's best wine, their amazing Malbec...

Cheers, my friends!
