El Enemigo Malbec 2014


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #228 Dec 2016
The 2014 El Enemigo Malbec is mostly Malbec, with some 15% of Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary, harvested from three different plots of vines over four different points in time—depending on the composition of the soil. The earlier grapes fermented with full clusters and the later ones were destemmed and crushed. It has a subtle, elegant nose with perfect ripeness, not showing the heat of the year, with the Cabernet Franc providing some sharper tannins. It's very clean and focused, developing a note of graphite as it sat in the glass.

Bright red-ruby. Lovely perfumed lift (from the small percentage of Cabernet Franc?) to the aromas of blackberry, menthol, spices, violet and herbs, with some intriguing earth notes adding another dimension. Suave, fine-grained and quite floral, showing as much red as blacker fruits; harmonious acidity gives the mid-palate a light touch, with savory minerality contributing interest and firmness. Nicely balanced from the start but this subtly sweet, salty, still-tight Malbec should unwind nicely over the next five or six years. Even today, there are no rough tannins or hard edges.
90 pts Wine Spectator 11/15/16
A fresh and zesty style, with concentrated crushed red fruit and blackberry flavors backed by crisp acidity. Offers a focused and pure finish, showing elegant notes of chocolate truffle and spice.
