Black cherry dominates the nose, with hints of lavender, violets, toasted oak, and white chocolate. Supple, round, mouth filling tannins caress the palate. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry, toasted oak, and chocolate carry through to a very long finish. When first tasted, our first premium- level Cabernet took one hour to fully open. This balanced wine will continue to develop for many years to come.
Enkidu Cabernet Sauvignon “E”
The origin or meaning of our name “Enkidu” comes from one of the oldest stories ever recorded: The Epic of Gilgamesh. Written in Sumerian cuneiform nearly 4500 years ago, the story details the life of King Gilgamesh and his best friend Enkidu. Enkidu was a steward of the land and protector of animals, and was created by the gods as a foil to Gilgamesh. Two-thirds deity and one-third human, he embodied strength, passion, and incredible bravery, yet at times showed fear and trepidation of the unknown. Early in his existence, Enkidu was rustic and rough around the edges, and over time he became more cultured and refined. He evolved while staying true to his nature, the same way a grape does as it journeys from the vine, through the vinification process, to a finished wine.
