In a wonderful place. Nose of spice and resin, pine needles, cherries, herbs, dried hay, citrus rind and more. This has gotten so much better since its awkward youth. Palate is fresh and linear with terrific acids and lean, fresh cherry fruit. Lovely length and purity. Air will improve but what an effort in a hard vintage.

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.

At first the almost port like color made me think it might be an off bottle. But ultimately I think this bottle is just not giving up too much right now. Forbiddingly tight. The fruit that does poke through is wonderful, though, and the balance is there.

Shades of ruby slippers in sepia. Translucent, feminine, earthy - so stripped this verges on watery, but stiffens with volatile levels of acid and retains a sense of vitality. I loved this wine last year and remember it softer, more cohesive. In 2022 she's a little bit angular but it could very well be the time or the context. Salty cherries, dirty mushrooms, rosemary.

Off bottle. Translucent ruby. Pinot aromas and flavors overwhelmed by Brett. Interesting banana note on the nose. Will check in on other bottles…

An amazing wine. And it needed 4 years to get to this point. Undrinkable when young. This is the magic of E&M. Sour strawberry, tart cranberry, ultra-fresh and bright, cedar shavings, Rangpur lime (I have these in my backyard)😀, touch resinous, who would have thought Pinot can have this taste profile, tons of acid. The wine is ready now with a decant. And by the way I am sorry for the folks who returned this wine. I actually might buy the remaining stock from my wine store.
