    Wine Library TV - 11/3/2010Rating: 88 #3; COLOR-dark; NOSE-this is so fruity and heavily jammed; blackberry jam; a little pepper and coffee; floral as well, but this is definitely fruit driven; PALATE-dark chocolate flavor coming through; not bad; really well made; good structure; a little black tea leaf component; dark fruit (blackberry) mixed with some red fruit (cranberry); the floral component on the nose disappears and the mid-palate is ok.

    Light transparent purple color. Strong alcohol aroma, but nice bouque. Smooth fruity flavor; slightly watery. Light after-taste, minimal tannins.

    The taste of this particular bottle is weird to me. Not sure if this is a skunked bottle, but I don't like the aftertaste.

    beppi - full-bodied and smooth with an almost sweet, fruit-forward blast followed by notes of coffee
