This jammy red remains fresh, with juicy acidity lifting the blackberry preserves, plum pudding and spicy cedar notes in the slightly grippy finish. Drink now. 13,696 cases made

The Layer Cake Cabernet definitely shows its Paso side; prominent nose of concentrated black fruit, smoked meat and dark chocolate. Rich and layered in the mouth, it is full of blackberries, Bing cherries and a silky, elegant structure. The finish shows the Alexander Valley roots with lingering cocoa-dusted cherries and thoughts of a cool evening with meat grilling over a fire.
Chile's Maipo Valley is known for producing stellar Cabernets, and Odjfell's "Babor" holds up that reputation. Fruit forward without being overpowering, this medium-bodied wine has easy, sweet tannins, gorgeous aromas of black cherries and plums, and a spicy, black-pepper finish.
