Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer EL ENEMIGO
Very deep intense purple colour. Youthful, spicy, bright, ripe, plum-cherry-apple nose with some faintly earthy, cedar notes. Dry, medium bodied, slightly spcy, bright, plum-crancherry flavours with a lingering, high acid, gently cedary finish. According to the winemaker, this blend of 92% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec has 13.5% alcohol, 1.7 g/L residual sugar and a hefty 6.3 g/L total acidity with lot number 2-2226 3 and L-N105 on the back label. It spent 16 months in French oak (20% new). Quite ready-to-drink. Unfortunately, this wine does not taste like the two-year-old 93-point tasting note that quoted in the Vintages Catalogue CSPC 11813

TASTING NOTE: The elegant, spicy, peppery and floral 2018 Cabernet Franc contains 10% Malbec, as these varietal bottling are rarely 100% varietal. It has intense and pungent flavors reminiscent of freshly cracked black peppercorns and wild herbs. The ripeness is contained, and the wine has a surprisingly low pH that provides very good freshness and a vibrant palate, more so given the very fine tannins and the tasty flavors that lift up the finish. Superb Cabernet Franc at an unbeatable price. Drink date: 2021-2025. Score - 93+ (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, March 31, 2021) Price $ 26.95
