VinoUS Media Review
Rated 93
The 2020 Cabernet Franc incorporates a 10% touch of Malbec and originates from Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. It underwent a 15-month aging process in used foudres. It's a dark and intense purple color. The nose reveals notes of ashes and herbs, interwoven with a subtle hint of jalapeno, set against a backdrop of black fruit and cedar. Dry and delicately lean, the palate is tightly structured and juicy, thanks to its fine-grained tannins. The vibrant palate concludes with a lingering thyme finish. Drinking Window 2023-2035.

Wine Tasting Notes
This El Enemigo Mendoza Cabernet Franc is ruby red in color with soft violet tones. The nose has intense aromas and concentrated notes of cassis, ripe currants, and sweet spices including black pepper and cloves. His tenure provides integrated oak notes of cedar and vanilla. Fresh impact and excellent structure on the palate, reminiscent of ripe red fruits with hints of eucalyptus and tagged black pepper. This wine has an excellent balance and elegance with a well-structured, persistent finish.

Food Pairing:
Pair this Cabernet Franc with grilled game meats.

    Smooth and easy drinking

    Smooth, a bit of fruit but not too much. One of my favorites with steaks. Being from Argentina we love our meats and this wine is perfect with grilled meats of any kind.
