    March 28, 2020 - Blueberry and blackberry aromas with similar flavors. Big and bold with ripe black cherry fruit. Complex and well-integrated.

    November 26, 2019 - Black fruit and oak aromatics. Decanted for 2 hours, and it could have used another. Intense blackberry and black cherry flavors with some spice and licorice. Went extremely well paired with gnocchi alla bolognese. Very tannic with some acidity but not too much. Long finish.

    November 23, 2019 - Best bottle (@Private location): Glass: Josephinenhütte White/Universal
    Popped and poured. Deep purple color, almost oily texture. Over-extracted, jammy and hot nose. I thought, that the 2013 Battonnage was already fat and bold, but this one is the pinnacle of over-extraction. Buy a glass of cassis and plum jam and a cheap bottle of vodka, mix it and you get the same result! This is not drinkable! We had 20+ wines this evening and this was the only bottle with over 50% left in the bottle. How do I rate this plonk? It is not flawed and is certainly well made, but I cannot rate it higher than 80 points for mercy’s sake.
