A couple of weeks ago I saw a bottle of mysterious red wine in an eastern European food shop near our Tube station.

I had no idea what it was called because the front label is in Russian*:

However, I am reliably informed that it is known as "Kagor", and that it comes from the Château Vartley winery in Moldova.

It's quite a sweet red wine, but not too sweet.  It's probably best described as a dessert wine, although the Russian label states that it is a cabernet sauvignon.

* Thankfully the back cover was in German, which described it as "south Moldovan red wine".
