EL ENEMIGO 2008 MALBEC

WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2008 El Enemigo Malbec contains 7% co-fermented Petit Verdot and was aged in 70% new French oak for 14 months. Medium purple in color, it gives up a pleasing perfume of cedar, spice box, lavender, black cherry, and blackberry. Full-bodied on the palate, with layered fruit, plenty of spice, and some elegance, this lengthy, flavorful effort will evolve for 2-3 years and provide peak drinking from 2012 to 2020."

We were wowed by El Enemigo. This is a bold and powerful Malbec blend from Argentina, made in collaboration with Alejandro Vigil, head winemaker at Bodega Catena Zapata and Adrianna Catena, daughter of Nicholas Catena, who is continuing in her family’s legacy of winemaking. The 2008 El Enemigo is a blend of 93% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot sourced from vineyards in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. This is a voluptuous, full-bodied wine with a color such a deep purple, it paints the glass. Wafting up are aromas of blackberries, red licorice and brandied cherries, followed by more blackberry, clove, black pepper and cola on the palate. The finish is long with gentle, soft tannins.
