This is a blend Öküzgözü (60%), and Boğazkere (40%), indigenous grapes of Turkey.  The name of the winery means Magical Winery.  Garnet in color, ruby at the edges, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose is nice with black cherry fruit.  Also some raisins and black pepper.  Full bodied.  A nice complexity.  Slightly ripe/sweet on the palate.  The black cherries and raisins carry thru.  Light tannins.  Moderate acidity.  Long finish.  This seems to be about at peak.  Drink over the next five to seven years.  It would work well with Manti (Turkish Ravioli).
