Enderle & Moll

Liaison Pinot Noir 2018

Rose petals, cherry, wet moss, wild berries, subtle herbs (tarragon?), flirty hint of grape, bubblegum. And that signature wild, almost over the line E&M VA. Fine tannins, very pretty. Substantially more va in one of two bottles opened. — 11 days ago

Great wine yet on the edge. And once the VA blows off it is all good. The VA is actually Ethyl-acetate which humans can small in extrem small amounts. The whole VA acronym is a misnomer.

Graacher Domprobst Kabinett Riesling 2020

A little too sweet when first opened but wait 30 minutes and it develops into a very precise sweet Riesling. Clean and straightforward Riesling ready to pair with Thai curry, Szechuan dishes, or Indian Rogan Josh or Vindaloo. — 24 days ago

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese Riesling 2022

Florality! Extremely floral. Green apple blossoms. Minty minerality. Pale straw. So pure, pristine, and crystalline. Crisp and precise. Refreshing acidity. Off dry — 24 days ago

Spätburgunder Rosé 2021

Quite tart strawberry driven. So fresh. Folks at the impromptu ‘case-tasting’ when Lyles wine arrived liked this one the best. More when this is settled after it’s travails. — 18 days ago

Scharzhof Riesling 2018

Good sweetness without being dessert. Acidity and crispness offset the sweet and made this an enjoyable aperitif and appetizer wine. — 7 days ago

Baden Pinot Noir 2021

Someone beat me to taste this from the bottle. Had 2021 from barrel and predicted it would be a stellar vintage. Well this estate wine is delicious. Cherries galore, lime, plenty of acidity but not over the top. Well balanced. Very burgundian. Yet it retains this slope of the black forest terroir. Strikes me as a drink now wine. Arrived today at 11am. Lyle will kill me for not allowing the wine to rest. I might try the big boys in the next couple of weeks. Can’t wait. Great wines in my book can withstand the shipping journey with ease. It’s a badge of honor. 11.5%. With air 9.4. — 20 days ago
