Made from the Karalahna grape which is found almost exclusively on Bozcaada Island.  Light ruby in color with a bit of browning, clear and bright.  Very light in color.  The nose has cherry cough syrup, some raisins, cloves and a bit of sweaty horse.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, cherries, raspberries with some underlying earthiness.  Kind of funky.  Fascinating.  Moderate acidity.  Hard to describe this in terms of western grapes, but enjoyable and it grows on you.  Seems to be getting on in years, so it probably should be consumed sooner than later.  It probably will work better with food.  Lahmacun (Turkish pizza) might be a nice choice.
