From the Lake Balaton region of Hungary, this is made from Kadarka grapes.  Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright.  The nose has cherries and cranberries and a slight dustiness to it.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, this is semi-sweet.  Smooth, not cloying and easy to drink.  No bite.  Cherry and cranberry notes balanced by the sweetness.  A nice wine to offer those who like this style but at the end of a meal, this would be a nice wine to serve with a few bites of hard cheeses.  Drink over the next five years.
