Winemaker’s Notes

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.

The expressive and elegant 2017 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc has some 8% Malbec in the blend. It’s a subtle red with nuance and detail, very harmonious, aromatic, even floral within the spicy character of the variety. The palate is medium-bodied, the tannins are very fine and there’s moderate alcohol and very good freshness and harmony. This matured in oak foudres for some 15 months.
