Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For El Enemigo Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2017

El Gran Enemigo Gualtallary shows a deep purple color with red highlights. Its aromas are intense and elegant. Cabernet Franc brings sweet spices, black pepper and light notes of eucalyptus and thyme. Malbec brings notes of ripe black fruits, blackberries and black cherries. The oak aging gives a touch of chocolate and vanilla to blend. The taste is complex, sweet impact with structured tannins, and a very long and persistent finish. This wine was made in honor of the old Pomerol style where Cabernet Franc was blended with the other Bordeaux varieties.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 31st Mar 2021 - Rated 98:
The 2017 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard didn't show any heat or excess ripeness from a warm and dry year. On the contrary, it's austere and has citrus acidity, with great freshness and minerality. The palate is super austere with vibrant acidity—by far the highest among the Gran Enemigo bottlings—and very fine, chalky tannins. This is remarkable, serious, balanced and fresh with a very, very long and salty finish. This fermented in barrels with 100% full clusters and indigenous yeasts and matured in centenary oak foudres for 15 months. 3,000 bottles were filled in July 2018. - Luis Gutiérrez

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 91:
The aromatic nose shows notes of cumin, green bell pepper and red fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, the palate features chalky tannins and lively acidity, structuring the juicy cherry and red plum flavors. A touch of sweet spice adds complexity. The finish is medium in length and has a pleasant fresh aftertaste.

James Suckling Review - Published May 5, 2021 - Rated 97:
Pretty aromas of plum, blueberry, rose hip, lavender, sandalwood and oyster shell. It’s medium-to full-bodied with silky, seamless tannins. So pure and elegant with gorgeous layers of cool blue fruit. Saline and coffee notes, too. Long and evolving. Drink or hold.
