This is made from the Bogazkere grape in Eastern Trukey.  Deep garnet in color, mostly clear and bright.  The nose has cherries and raspberries with some spice.  Full bodied.  Not as light as it looks.  Firm tannins.  On the palate, the cherries come thru along with some black cherries and cranberries.  Tart acidity.  Long finish.  This is drinking well now and seems like it should for another five to eight years.  It begs for food to tame the acidity and should be able to handle big flavors and fatty foods.  Turkish Lamb Kebobs would be a good choice.
