El Enemigo Cabernet Franc 2018
- Medium bodied
Unlike most of the top producers in Mendoza, El Enemigo focuses on cabernet franc for their reserve wines. There’s always a bit of malbec in the blend, but the vast majority is cab franc, 92% in the case of this wine from their estate range. Rather than relying on the power of malbec, El Enemigo focuses on the layering of complex flavours in a more structured and medium-bodied style of wine. There’s plenty of dark fruit there, but it’s the herbs, spices, earthiness and savouriness that really shine through in a style of Mendoza wine that may surprise and will certainly delight.
“Aromas of crushed berries with chili and mineral undertones. It’s full-bodied with firm tannins. Structured and savory. Tannic finish with length. Hints of herbs to the blackberry fruit character. Try after 2022, to let the tannins soften a bit. But already attractive.”
Full price $70.00 from the producer.

Mendoza is a beautiful region within Argentina that is known for their powerful Malbecs, although the region has begun to branch out to prove that they're not a one grape wonder. Being responsible for nearly 80% of the total production, the region produces Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Tempranillo, Chenin and various other grapes. Food focused wines that will satisfy any curious wine drinker.
