Winemaker's Notes

El Enemigo Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2018 is a premium red wine from Argentina's Mendoza wine region. This wine is made entirely from Cabernet Franc grapes grown in a single vineyard located in the Gualtallary sub-region, which is known for producing some of the region's finest wines.

The wine is dark red in color, with aromas of black fruits such as blackberry and black currant, along with hints of black pepper and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. The tannins are firm and well-structured, giving the wine a long and elegant finish.

This wine is aged in French oak barrels for 15 months, which adds subtle notes of oak and spice to the wine's flavor profile. It has a high alcohol content of 14.5%, which adds to its rich and intense character..

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 98:
One of the finest and more regular wines from Argentina, the 2018 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard is austere and shows restraint, with great freshness and gobsmacking balance and complexity, but in the context of the 2019 and 2020 vintages that I also tasted next to it, it comes thorough as slightly less refined but still with 13.5% alcohol and with very good parameters of acidity and freshness. It has a medium-bodied palate and a rare combination of power and elegance, with very fine, chalky tannins. It's very long and has a salty and tasty finish.

James Suckling Review - Rated 96:
Aromas of violets, almond blossoms, wild blackberries, blueberries, ash, tea leaves and nutmeg. It’s medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and finely knit tannins. Mineral, tea-like edge, supporting a fresh core of blue fruit. Refined and subtle, yet comforting. Try from 2023.

Wine Specatator Review - Rated 93:
Well-structured, with nice elegance and tension, offering dusty floral and spice notes against a core of fleshy red plum and strawberry flavors that swell midpalate around fresh, mineral acidity. Shows notes of spiced chocolate on the finish. Drink now through 2032.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 92:
Aromas of red plum and dried herbs blend with small doses of vanilla. Made with grapes sourced from Gualtallary, it’s full bodied and energetic, with a herbaceous character demanding attention on the vibrant palate. Plum, blackberry and green bell pepper join oak spice. It finishes with notes of tobacco.
