2016 Bonelli's Eagle Languedoc-la-Clape Rouge

Sourced from vineyards within the La Clape appellation, a small segment of the Languedoc region, this wine is named for the Bonelli’s eagle, which has made a home in this quiet part of the world. On the palate, this effusive red shows flavors of cherry, plum and fig, along with savory hints of thyme, rosemary and sage — herbs that grow wild among the shrubs surrounding the vines. Sublime food pairings include lamb and herb-seasoned red meats that echo the nuances of the wine.

Some winemakers prefer "wild fermentations," meaning they do not use a specific yeast strain to ferment their wines – they just let nature take its course.
