(2016) Öküzgözü is certainly a new grape variety for me (and almost used up my entire supply of umlauts), this from high altitude vineyards in Anatolia, eastern Turkey. It's a solid wine, with thick dark cherry and and some curranty, blackberry fruit, and a little sheen of oak. In the mouth there is a pleasing, inky darkness to this, a touch of meat and earth as well as plummy black fruit. It has some spice, and a dry, tannic finish that gives it freshness too. Really rather nice in a slightly rustic, very 'Old World' style.
