2017 ENKIDU “E” SONOMA COUNTY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

When creating a value Cabernet that doesn’t give an inch in terms of complexity, body or flavor, it can often take a patchwork of carefully sought out vineyards to bring all of the parts together.  Enkidu’s E Cabernet Sauvignon arose primarily from vineyards on the valley floor in Sonoma, but it was heightened with 10% Petite Sirah from the Red Hills of Lake County, and even includes Cabernet Sauvignon from Pine Mountain at 2,400 feet in elevation in Anderson Valley.   Pine Mountain is also the source for Capture’s flagship Revelation Cabernet Sauvignon which retails for about $140/btl.  At $25, this wine is remarkably deep and rich, and loaded with dark berries, sweet camphor, dark chocolates and black spice.  The value is absolutely unmistakeable.

The wine was crafted by Phillip Staehle who gained valuable first-hand winemaking knowledge at Carmenet Vineyards, which is part of the Chalone Group. It was there that he met the late Dick Graff, who was a pioneer in California winemaking and Phillip still follows many of the winemaking philosophies that he learned at Carmenet, concentrating on every detail in the winemaking process.  Don’t be fooled by this wine’s modest price point.  It was made with the same attention to detail and thoughtful winemaking that you would expect from a much higher-end Cabernet Sauvignon.

Description

2017 ENKIDU “E” SONOMA COUNTY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Winery Notes: “The succession of very fine vintages for the “E” Cabernet continues. The 2017 shows incredible aromas and is in the next league up with its pure currant and blackberry fruit, and a dose of garrique, black spice and a touch bittersweet chocolate. The aromas give way to currant and blackberry liqueur with a hint of plum skin and new oak in the flavors. The richness of this wine embraces you on the entrance and continues for a very long time…a hallmark of luxury Cabernets. Enjoyable now, and will go on for 15 years.
