Enkidu produces wines primarily from the varieties grown in the Burgundy and Rhone Valley of France. Pinot Noir (a little bit of the dead, a little of the living); Syrah (barnyard, smoked meat and white pepper) and Petite Sirah (a warrior with a sword who first learned to dance) were our inaugural varietals. Enkidu is an ensemble of people who are passionate about wine. For us the wines we produce are in response to the fruit in the vineyards, not dictated by a recipe preconceived in the office. Our wines are the result of diligent work in the vineyards by these dedicated viticulturists with whom we consult throughout the year to maximize the quality of the fruit. – Description from Dragac

  • Time for some horizontal tasting.  This topic is specifically to address commonalities and differences between the same grape varietal (or blend) and same year of bottling, but at different wineries or different vineyards of the same winery.  Take a picture of your two or more bottle comparisons and tell us which is better.  If you can, provide ...

  • Enkidu Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Very much and herbal/grassy nose. Interesting combination of herbalness and stone fruit is my initial tongue sensation. Then, there is a lemon pith sensation. The lemon sensation seems to linger a bit giving good refreshment. After a few minutes of air, stone fruit sensations seem more emergent. Read More

  • Enkidu 'E' Old Vine Zinfandel 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Nose of berries and some dustiness. Red fruit and dustiness on the tip of the tongue. Nice acid tartness. Sturdy tannins. Somewhat unusual finish: a suggestion of caramel and, interestingly, a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue. Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • Enkidu 'E' Old Vine Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Red fruitraspberry, strawberry, plumwith slate on entry. Mid palate shows earthiness as initially suggested by the slate. Nice tannin and acid. An easy drinker. This is the kind of Zin that you want a lot of in your cellar. It is an easy go to with any kind of casual dinner. Read More

  • Enkidu Syrah Russian River Valley Odyssey 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a musky nosemaybe, mushroomy. Fairly light on the tip of the tonguesome blackberry hintbut, definitely not in your face with fruit. Some hint of herbaceousness, but I could not tell you what herb. Certainly not overly tannic. So, it is an easy to drink wine. However, Im getting a bit of heat at the back of the palate. Read More

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • Enkidu Bedrock Vineyard Barbera 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful red plum color in the glass. Something of a musky nose. On the tongue, this is an absolute knock-off of so many Italian red wines that I have enjoyed over the years. Medium bodied. Fresh, bright red fruit, but the dominant characteristic is tartness. Now, Im sure that somebody will insist that if one dimension dominates, then the ... Read More

  • Damn, a guy would die of thirst waiting for a recommendation from youz peeps.Well, OT, since my cellar mostly reflects guidance that I've received from you, it seems that any recommendation that I may give would be completely redundant. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.  Besides, somehow or other, you always seem to do OK on your own.FWI...
