This is a blend of Laecik Karasi and Syrah from western Turkey. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black cherries, some black raspberries, a bit of funk and earth. Great texture; rich but juicy. On the palate, there is a nice complexity. Black raspberries, plums and black cherries with some earthiness underneath. Long finish. This is tasty. It may get better but should mature for a bit and drink well for another ten to twelve years. It would work well with Yaprak Dolma (stuffed grape leaves).
