From the Cahors wine region in Southwest France, Château La Caminade 2017 is a robust red wine blend of Malbec and Merlot -- a wine made from game dishes like roast rabbit and pheasant. Fragrant on the nose with earthy florals and underbrush aromas, dry, with ripe dark fruit, baked strawberry, wild herbs, underbrush and earthy, smoky flavours on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
