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

Any recommendations on how our 2 day stay should be spen... Read More

  • Enkidu Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Bedrock Vineyard 2011


    Opaque and fairly dark purple in the glass. Moderate, blackberry nose, with, also, a tartness. Tart blackberry and, maybe, blueberry on the tongue. None of the bramble that sometimes comes with Zinfandel. Interestingly, there is more fruit on the back of the tongue, but it is fresh fruit, not jammy or dried. Nice firm tannin for structure. ...

  • "Now, if we wait a bit, I'm sure someone will jump in here with a different view."Glad to see the conditioned response, Mark!There is not a single wine I've had in my lifetime (and there've been quite a few) that has been better drunk right after opening than letting it breathe for a time.You don't need to decant, just open the bottle, and let i...

  • I bought the Enkidu based on your rec, Emark.Awww, shucks. I suppose I should mention that it seems I'm on the younger side for this forum, having just turned 30OK, we'll let you play with us.  Just don't forget your place, whippersnapper. Comment on the Melville Syrah, above.  Sadly, disappointing.  Up-front red cherry fruit has no backbone.  I...

  • I know you are new to the Forum, and, by the way, let me add my welcome to you, but one of our more respected contributors (it may be that I respect hime because I agree with him most of the time) by the handle of Outthere posted an excellent comment, today, on one of the other Forum threads regarding decanting.  Check it out, here.  Thanks for ...

  • RW, way back when, I lived in Manhattan Beach, CA.  The expression among the locals was "There is no life east of Sepulveda."  I was also gifted by my b-i-l with a litho of Manhattan Beach (still hanging in my house 50 miles east of Sepulveda Boulevard, where, apparently, there is no life) which is a take-off of the Steinberg cover.  As you migh...

  • Hi Robo! Like Mark said that Enkidu performs quite well on pop n pour but also does reward you for a little patience. If it's just you dirnking it maybe save half for tomorrow and compare your notes and see if it eveloves any. It's not a terribly complex wine but does have a nice racy edge to it.Following up on my Bedrock Kamen from the other ni... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Whatcha drinking tonight?

  • The winemakers I speak with are doing it as an environmentally friendly approach. Less waste and less strain on resources. The thing about rodents is true but mainly a European issue.Personally I like it. It saves one step in opening the bottle, it allows me to see if there is any issue with the sealing of the cork over time and it does not hide... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Capsules on Wine Bottles

  • About a year ago I ranted a bit about the wax capsules that some makers put over the corked end of the bottle.  The cooler heads of the Forum calmed me down, and I am now co-existing with these.In the past few years I have noticed that more and more makers (U.S.) are not applying a capsule at all.  I have to say, I like this idea, a lot.  Some s...

  • Enkidu E Old Vine Field Blend 2012


    Quite stout blackberry nose with a touch of an acerbic somethingmaybe, alcohol. Terrific blackberry and earthy flavors flow over the tongue. This is a very fat wine, but the fruit is roped in by earthiness and tannin. So, there is no jamminess at all. This is the second one of these that Ive had (one more to go) and, while I dont really have... Read More
