Grape Varietal – native turkish grapes blending Okuzgozu wtih Bogazkere

This wine tastes dry and very woody.  I find it very strong tasting similar to a Syrah but without the spice.  The easiest way to describe the taste would be to chew up grape seeds, slight bitters.  I suspect this is the highly sought after tannins taste that Bogazkere is suppose to bring.  I agree with reviews that this blend is very bold tasting.  It also leaves a ripe berry aftertaste more similar to raisins than cherries.  I would not suggest drinking this wine on its own.  It would go very well with a tomato mozzarella salad and a traditional margherita pizza.  In Chinese food I would throw it in with sweet and sour tasting dishes.  It would go well with dishes that require a hint of vinegar to bring out the full flavour.
