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

  • 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

  • Welcome to the Snooth Forum, Cy. We hope you continue to join us here, and we hope that you come back with a report on your visit.You did a good job of explaining your goals for your visit, but, of course, I am going to ask for more information.  Are you more interested in visiting wineries with "walk-in" tasting rooms or would you prefer to set...

  • 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...

  • Enkidu Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Bedrock Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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...
