This red wine from the south-west of France is a "terroir" wine which reflects the local character. The vineyards sit on a renowned marine geological site, and a walk through the vines reveals a large number of fossils. This geology gives the wine a mineral and savoury quality.

Overhead the vines are protected by Eagles, the guardian of the sky (or as the label says Le Gardien des Cieux).

This is a very food friendly wine. The nose has aromas of berry fruits such as blackberries and blackcurrants, with touches of spice, and the palate has plush, silky tannins. It is a charming blend of Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) that is easy to drink on any occasion.

Pair this with grilled red meats or charcuterie.

Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates from Australia and British Columbia, Canada to Lebanon's Beqaa Valley.

The classic profile is full-bodied with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to aging potential.

South West, France

The town of Cahors, located in the South West, was a center of the wine trade in medieval times and was known for its "black wine", which was highly sought after by European nobility. 

Another South West town, Gaillac, has been producing wine for over 2,000 years, with evidence of vineyards dating back to the Roman era.
