The first impressions are the aromas of white chocolate, cranberry, cherry, brown spice with faint earthiness. Once in the mouth this young, beautiful Pinot combines the cranberry and cherry with red plum, spice and earth. Though soft on entrance there is a tannic framework which ushers the flavors to a medium long finish. Drink this beauty now, but you will be rewarded with 2+ years bottle age.
Enkidu Pinot Noir
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.
