Turkish Delight - Review of Angora Red

After this, I will have caught up. So, in October, I was cruising the Mediterranean and visited Greece, Egypt and Turkey. Turkey is a place I would revisit in a heartbeat, especially since I did not get a chance to visit Cappadoccia. Due to my abbreviated itinerary, I didn't taste as much as I wanted, however, this was my favorite of the little that I did try.
Angora Red: An interesting blend of Cinsault, Gamay and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine was a pleasing dinner wine. Garnet in color, the nose was redolent with pepper, spice and red fruit. It had a medium body and was dry, yet fruity. I had ordered an unpronounceable traditional fish dish and this went well with the heavily, if not hotly, spiced fish dish.
