A very ‘modern’ rendition of the more ‘masculine’ of Turkish varieties: Boğazkere http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boğazkere from eastern Anatolia, the ‘Xinomavro’ of Turkey. This is a clear, bright, deep purple color wine with ruby hues and some tears on the glass. Clean on the nose with medium aromatic intensity suggesting dark cherry, cranberry, sour cherry, plum, strawberry, tomato, leafiness, and vanilla. Developing. Dry on the palate with medium acidity, high green and coarse tannins, high alcohol, medium+ body and medium+ flavor intensity displaying earth, leafiness, old oak, cranberry, sour cherry, plum, cloves and vanilla. Medium+ length with tannic and fruity aftertaste. Very good quality wine with balance between its components, high fruit concentration and complexity and medium+ length. A ‘brusco’ style wine that is good to dring now but could age 3-5 years.
