"The 2011 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc is a little bit of the reverse blend of the Malbec, as it packs 92% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec also from Gualtallary in Tupungato in the Uco Valley. However, this is sourced from plots planted with 10,000 plants per hectare on schist soils. Very little SO2 was used in the production of this wine. It has some notes of black fruit and violets, but remains closed, austere, lineal and straight with very high acidity. It is very much about the soil, not much about the fruit, but its youth is revealed in the notes of the elevage that are still there: that is cedar wood, peat and graphite. Summarizing, this is an austere, serious, long, tight red that has great potential to age. " ~LG

5/5 stars
strong cab franc - This full bodied wine is predominantly cab franc with Malbec. Excellent combination. The wine drinks well now, but would certainly benefit from aging.

Flavorful - Love this deep red/garnet wine. Tried it at a restaurant and decided I had to have some. It is just as I remembered it. Not too dry, but better with food.
