Continuing Hitler Wine coverage...

We recently reported on wine that was alleged to have been made for Adolf Hitler, and this drew a response from reader Frank Green of New York City, who “tried this vintage” and sent us a review:

“This wine is very bold, with a very bitter after-taste. Doesn’t sit well with Russian food, completely dominates French cuisine, but can be successfully paired with tortellini and sushi.

“It has a full bodied taste with hints of black currant, leather, gunpowder, steel, burnt wood and brick. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is ‘beware.’ This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

“Ultimately its taste will die in the cellar, although it still may be found in select South American cafes. Palate best cleared with American and U.K. domestic brews.”
