95/100 Punkte James Suckling December 2016 The elderberry and sour-cherry aromas of this wine are really intense, but on top of that a mass of herbal notes give it serious complexity, power and concentration. The body is delivered without a hint of heaviness, the freshness without a hint of sharpness, and a very long, silky finish makes this a near-perfect single-vineyard blaufränkisch.
92-93/100 Punkte James Suckling May 2018 A stunning nose of spices, licorice and a hint of graphite. A dark and dangerous red that combines warmth with great freshness. The moderately dry tannins drive the long peppery finish. Drink or hold.
93-95/100 Punkte Falstaff Weinguide 2013 Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zart mit Wacholder- und Lorbeernoten unterlegte schwarze Beerenfrucht, tabakige Nuancen, dunkle Mineralik. Straff und engmaschig, feine rote Frucht, präsente Tannine, die gut eingebunden sind, wirkt sehr leichtfüßig, extraktreiche Länge, sehr balanciert und frisch, delikat und lagerfähig.
92+/100 Punkte Robert Paker June 2016 A bit lighter in color than the corresponding 2009, the garnet-red 2011 Jagini Zagersdorf opens pure, ripe and rich, but with precision and intensity. Full-bodied, mouth-filling, powerful and intense, but with a bit more finesse than 2009. Very long and with tension. I have to add, though, that the 2011, as well as the 2009, have significantly lost precision and freshness overnight on both nose and palate, whereas the finish was still fresh and tension-filled. Drink it quickly, as a 94-pointer which seems definitely more fun. I should also add that I did not have the same experience before and left the tasting table with a big question mark.
