El Enemigo Cabernet Franc 2017

$23.00
( 0 Reviews )

This Cabernet Franc is ruby red in color with soft violet tones. The nose has intense aromas and concentrated notes of cassis, ripe currants, and sweet spices including black pepper and cloves. His tenure provides integrated oak notes of cedar and vanilla. Fresh impact and excellent structure on the palate, reminiscent of ripe red fruits with hints of eucalyptus and tagged black pepper. This wine has an excellent balance and elegance with a well-structured, persistent finish.

Pair this Cabernet Franc with grilled game meats.

Critical Acclaim

Tim Atkin - Blended with 6% Malbec - Alejandro Vigil rarely makes pure varietal wines - this old foudreaged Cabernet Franc is grassy, sappy and refreshing, with notes of green tea, cassis and aromatic spices. The 60% whole bunches add another layer of complexity. 2018-25. Alcohol: 13.5%
 
James Suckling 93 - Aromas of dark fruit with fresh herbs and tile. Perfumed. Medium-to-full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish.
 
Wine Advocate 93 - The 2015 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc was produced with fruit from Gualtallary, from a specific 8.8-hectare plot of the Adrianna Vineyard. It fermented in two tries with a portion of full clusters. It has a beautiful nose with plenty of spices and herbs and some Pinot-like red fruit. The palate is harmonious and balanced, with very fine tannins and a velvety texture. 21,600 bottles produced.
 
Wine Spectator 90 - A pure and refreshing red, with raspberry and macerated cherry flavors that are fringed by hints of dried herbs and fresh-ground pepper. The taut finish is framed by slate notes. Drink now through 2020.
 
Wine Enthusiast 90 - Earthy, slightly scratchy aromas of reedy plum and berry fruits set up a drawing palate with raw, scratchy tannins. This Cab Franc shows a woody side even though it was aged in old vats, but it has chocolate and berry fruit flavors to back that up. Residual tannins make for a slightly abrasive finish. Drink through 2020.
