German Pinot Noir

Enderle & Moll

Liaison Pinot Noir 2018

Well this has come a long way in a year and a half. Opens with a blast of flowers and fruit. Roses and lilac. Really crazy perfume, so unique for pinot noir. Don’t know how this manages to be so consistently high wire, flirting with serious volatile acidity, yet maintaining such balance and cleanness. Florals just open more and more with time. — 2 days ago

Rosé Secco 2020

Well balanced, acidic but not overly tart, with a nice, balanced effervescence. The nose is forward, but not pungent, with a nice slight bubblyness, and notes of strawberries, raspberries, and slight mineral notes. The flavor is VERY fruit forward, with notes of strawberries, raspberry, light passion fruit, prickly pear, and sweet rhubarb, with a slight earthy almost vegetal finish. Very tasty, easy to drink, with great flavor! — 15 days ago

Kastanienbusch Pinot Noir 2018

9.5

This is 2018 in a 2017 bottle. Finally. This is as advertised as Sven was going crazy over this wine. Well, as much as a reserved German guy can go crazy. Stunning nose. Just bananas great. Deep red and black cherry and just perfect ripeness. Heavenly spices and unreal depth and refinement. That’s what makes this special. The refinement. This nose is a 9.6. Easy. So nimble and spicey. It’s so layered. Unreal black and red cherry. Just sick! Since 2014 he has improved so much with his Pinot. Wow, so lush and suave on the palate with such freshness and purity. Also the appropriate amount of leanness. Rich but nimble and so focused. Nose keeps getting more expansive and more complex. Nose gets licorice and cherry flower with air. Also cherry pastille. So juicy and with terrific structure. Elegant and velvety tannins and really has structure to burn. This will age gloriously. Terrific inner mouth aromas. But I can tell this needs an hour to really shine. And it will.

Wow this is sick. Super sweet fruit. Finish is killer. Awesome purity. Lipstick like intensity. Superb cherries. Super concentration.

Hofgarten Baden Pinot Noir 2015

Simple, pretty little bottle of earthy mushrooms, red apple skin, tart cherries, and dried cranberries. Light bodied, flirtatious, and raw.

Hochborn Riesling 2019

Lyle Fass
9.4

Super citrus and grapefruit. Fleshy and also pithy. Peach pit. Lovely intense minerals. Super expressive nose that is serene and zen. Some confectionary notes as well. Very very complex. Wow. Great complexity and depth. Very salty. A bit closed but so pretty and vivid. Almost in 4D. Complex stoniness on the nose after a bit of air. Superb spices and herbs as well. So lively with so much energy and citrus intensity. Really long easily best Hochborn ever. Nose is getting confectionary.

After some air it’s got such a classic nose. Airy and confectionary. Melon. Cantaloupe. Terrific rock candy sweet minerality.

Red Light Kabinett Trocken Spätburgunder 2019

This is my second time having Stein’s Red Light Pinot Noir in just a few weeks and I’m really digging it. Pale red and see through in color, but not lacking in structure or flavor. Forest floor on the nose. Cranberries and black cherries on the palate. Every sip makes me want another. — 7 days ago

9.4

@Delectable Wine this is the “Zellertal Riesling Trocken” and producer is Battenfeld Spanier

Super complex nose. Herbs, spices, honeyed and high toned, lime zest, peaches, apricots, you can smell the tartness. Wow. Complex as fuck. Super textured and juicy and lovely spread and purity. Amazingly juicy and elegant with superb substance and depth. Huge acidity. Apricots and peach pith. Superb structure. Will benefit from intermediate cellaring. Long finish and perfect balance. Stunning. Such a mineral wash on the finish.
