Currant, blackberries, plum skin and a hint of tar, leap from the glass in this complex wine. The rich, soft entrance gives way to mouth-filling tannins, providing the backbone to a long finish. This deep wine really shows the Cabernet varietal character of what we call cherry/berry: loads of black cherry flavors with blackberry, currant and a hint of dried herb are noticeable flavors. The mountain fruit hallmarks of black fruit and structure are dominant. Time in bottle will lead to elegance, or decant with a dose of air to liberate this big Cab.
Enkidu Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
