These tasting notes date back such a long time (to early November 2013) that all I have to go on are what I wrote at the time.

Weingut Huber, Malterdinger Spätburgunder trocken 2009, Baden, Germany
Fairly dense in appearance. Dark ruby.
Bacon. Vivid with red fresh cherries. Quite heady and haunting. Smelling savoury with a touch of seasoning. Then herbs emerge. Dense and brooding on the one hand, perfumed on the other.
On the palate, cherry and forest fruit. Concentrated and tightly woven. Luscious with a firm body. Not an ounce of fat. Impressive. Pinpoint acidity. Long finish.
