Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 96:
Blueberries, blackcurrants, hot stones, tobacco leaves, dried lavender, walnuts and cracked pepper on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Dark and mineral character to this. Solid, compact cabernet franc. Firm and savory finish. Try from 2024.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 93:
Plum, blueberry, black pepper, chocolate and bay leaf emerge from the glass. The mineral-textured palate is vertical, with lively acidity backing juicy black- and red-fruit flavors. A dash of cocoa and eucalyptus is intertwined in the fresh finish.

Robert Parker Review - Rated 95:
The 2018 Gran Enemigo Chacayes Single Vineyard is a blend of Cabernet Franc with some 15% Malbec mixed in the vineyard. It comes from younger vines than the ones from the classical zones, as the vines were planted in 2004 in The Vines of Mendoza complex at 1,100 meters in altitude. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and with some 50% whole clusters and aged in old oak foudres. Tasted next to the 2019 and 2020, this shows a little more body and tannin, coming through as slightly rustic. Best after 2022.
