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.

As always a treat and one of the best and most unique Pinot’s for 30$+. I had this wine now every year since 2009. There are always the herbs 🌿. Best described as Black Forest mountain meadow potpourri. This wild thyme nose reminds me of the thyme that actually grows in this area. The wine needs to breathe for at least 30 min may be more - uncurls and is then classic E&M which I think would be recognizable amongst 100‘s of other Pinot’s. Tart lingonberry, pomegranate, chalk and just a tiny hint of pine needles and orange zest. This bottling needs at least 2 more years to settle down. So fun to open and explore right now but really not a drink now wine! Yes Lyle was right closed as fuck in Feb! Still hard to judge 8 month later.

Dusty, approachable and a great, uncompromised expression of the grape. I’d say simple but that would belie the amount of nuance the winemakers achieve by not trying to apply international winemaking styles
