Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For El Enemigo Gran Enemigo Chacayes Cabernet Franc 2017

Low yields due to moderate frosts in the Uco Valley; an early harvest, and perfect balance. After the harvest of 2016, the smallest and coldest in three decades thanks to El Niño, Mendoza’s wine producers were mourning their empty wineries and hoping for a big crop. But Nature had other plans, and 2017 was another year of small yields. Instead, we were overjoyed by the glorious concentration, heightened cool-climate acidity, and explosive aromatics!

El Enemigo Gran Enemigo Chacayes Cabernet Franc 2017 shows a deep ruby purple color with with aromas of earth and oak, blackberry and plum. Cabernet Franc brings sweet spices and earthy notes, leather and light notes of pepper and other spices. 

85% Cabernet Franc, 15% Malbec

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 95:
Beautiful aromas of blackberries, black walnuts and violets with hints of fresh tarragon. It’s medium-bodied with creamy, finely rounded tannins that lead you down to the end of the palate. Succulent and delicious at the finish.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 92:
Big and well-structured, with concentrated dark currant and dried blackberry flavors backed by firm acidity and tannins. Creamy dark chocolate notes midpalate lead the lusciously spiced finish.
