I'm having a hard time identifying a shrub on our property.  We moved here only a few months ago so I don't know exactly how this plant looks in all seasons.  However, here is what I do know.

It seems to be a woody shrub that grows 5-10 ft tall, the leaves are simple, opposite, and obovate (maybe?) the red to purple berries grow in 4's with a single, large (relatively) pit. The leaves are dark green and slightly waxy.

My best guess from google-foo is honeysuckle, but from what I've read, honeysuckly contains many seeds...

For guesses at cherries:

Dogwood, leaves aren't quite right shape.... hm.

Buffaloberries, fruit shape is right, clustering is wrong, leaves are wrong.

Think I found a match. Tartarian Honeysuckle.
