Lovely ephemeral nose. Silken gossamer. Wilted roses. Expansive and just beautiful. Cherry. Strawberry. 9.4 almost 9.5 nose. Out of this world. Palate is sweet, silky and so elegant. Lovely sappy cherry fruit on the mid and then they crash like a soft wave on the finish. This is so so pretty. Really wowing me on pop and pour. Fresh so fresh. Everything is in its place.

Very light in color. Sour licorice, raspberry, tart currant, and red apple skin. This really needs a second to play nice. Opens up with some forest floor. Keeps getting better.

Another great vintage for the new hedonists. That jammy stuff’s for the other guy.

Always a multi-day opera with this one: Day 1: Luden’s cough drops, dill, coriander and pickling spices. Whiff of boiled weeds. And this is a fruit day. And the wine is clean as a whistle, tender and tempting. If you’re an Enderle fan, none of this sounds even remotely odd. Day 2: Rancid strip mall Peking Duck, MSG straight out of the box, and cabbage boiled in a cheap aluminum pot. Wretched. Day 3: The most tender, pure and clear cherry aromas and flavors, reminiscent of Tollot-Beaut or Cornu Chorey-les-Beaune of the 1980s. A long, palpable finish of immense, chalky minerals and vibrant acids. Extraordinary.

So controversial. #The 2017 as turned!!!! to a real beauty - finally after 4 years!!! So there was no need to bully/discredit/return this wine after all. It is probably the most elegant Liaison they made to date. I Coravin’ed the bottle drank half and popped it 6 months later. Resiny, classic E & M Black Forest herbs, crushed marble, Cigar box, orange zest. One of the few wines I will cellar for 10 years. This will probably evolve like a Riesling and could last decades. (I really had trouble with this wine at first - boy was I wrong).

Again. Always terrific. Love the purity of the fruit, the balance, and that fine Pinot nose. @Lyle Fass

Light red, bordering rosé. Raspberry and volatile acidity.

A nearly perfect German Spat. Expressive and restrained. Nothing short of beautiful from Enderle & Moll who many consider the best Pinot wranglers in Germany. This is light and lucid with the temperament of a dark shadowed forest. Damp soil, sprawling moss, minty herbs. The faintest strawberry and cherry underneath a salty lean mineral figure.
