2017 Ultimate Wine Challenge

Diren Mahlep 2015 Tokat (Turkey), 18% abv, $6.00, 500 ml

86
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Pours a deep auburn color with mahogany glints. Gobs of fruitcake on the nose, with notes of dried plums, raisins, dried currants, and a heathy dose of Christmas spices, especially clove and cinnamon. Rich and sweet, but cloyingly so.
