This wine is from a small region in the Loire called Valencay and is a blend of Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Pinot Noir. The wine is dark ruby in color, medium bodied, and shows the fresh summer berry fruit of Gamay, the earthy, peppery spice of Cab Franc, the grip of Malbec, and the bright acidity and silky texture of Pinot Noir. An excellent value and absolutely delicious, obscure wine.
