Words will fail me. Nose changed 100 times and the texture so delicate yet so opulent yet so intense. Just a mesmerizing bottle of wine and the finest German Pinot I’ve had in my life.

Goddamn I love this wine. Huge aromatics, spent the first 5-10 minutes just breathing it in without even sipping. Mouth puckering acid, spicy cinnamon, black cherries, black and red currants, licorice, pepper. The spirit of the primeval forest wrapped in an elegant package. Clearly Germany was a temperate refuge in a hot year I tend to avoid elsewhere.

Continue to be wowed by this producer—gorgeous woodsy and earthy red fruit, spicy, floral and feral notes, incredibly delicate structure with fine powdery tannins

Happy National Wine Day! This producer was of interest to me after seeing Carla's post a couple of weeks ago. I don't find many good Pinot's out of Germany. Especially, out of Mosel. I've never understood why they persist in growing Pinot in a very marginal climate in blue slate when it prefers limestone. After researching this Baden producer, I purchased a bottle through the app. I like to support them from time to time. In reading about Enderle & Moll, I found that the winery is really only the two of them that make a very small production of wines. Basically, two Grand Cru Pinots and this is one of them. They also produce some small amounts of; Müller-Thurgau, Auxerrois, Weissburgunder and Grauburgunder. They only have a few hectares of vines but are already getting a lot of attention in Germany and now the International stage. A number of German's consider them the best producers of Pinot Noir made in Germany. The Enderle & Moll Pinot vines are amongst the oldest in Baden. They also get their barrels from Dujac in Burgundy that are from 1-5 years in age. On the nose, sweet dark cherries with a little touch of sourness. Strawberries, dark raspberries, dry cranberries, black cherry licorice/cola, light presence of dark spices, dry brown earth with a touch of black earth and bright red florals. The body starts light, fresh and thickens as the M tannins and earth take hold. Ripe, bright fruits of; dark cherries, strawberries, dry cranberries, dark raspberries & pomegranate. Black cherry cola/licorice, light dark spices with some heat, powdery sticky chalkiness, soft yet grippy minerals, powder of dry crushed rocks, dark moist earth & bright red & pink florals. The wine is lean, fresh, clean and quite nice with high acidity. While I had slightly higher expectations from my research, this is still a very nice Pinot and certainly one of the better ones I've had out of Germany. Photos of, one of their Baden vineyards, Sven Enderle and Florian Moll, their very small cellar and a example of Bunter sandstone similar to what's in their Buntsandstein Vineyard.

Classic E&M quite closed even after 24 hours! This needs years! Big mostly black fruit and herbs such as rosemary and thyme. Chalk and lime? Next day elderberry bay leaf
