    El Enemigo, “the enemy”. The struggle that most defines us in our lives is the one that we wage with our selves. We are all our own worst enemies. This is the credo behind the name on the label. The wines of El Enemigo are enigmatic, charismatic, and verging on iconoclastic.

    Beautiful balance and freshness with dark berry, sea salt and mineral character. Full body, silky tannins and a dry finish. From grapes grown in Gualtallary. Aged in 6,000 liter 100-year-old cask.

    Anthony Gismondi, October 2016

    From Gualtallary, 1470 metres above sea level on rocky calcareous soil, this 89/6/5/ malbec/cabernet franc/petit verdot is fermented in both 225 liter barrels and old cement containers. The intense, pure black fruit is set free by the use of aged foudres for aging. The textures are round and soft, the fruit is a mix of blackberry/mulberry with a fresh, mineral, floral, licorice undercurrent. Delicious drinking even when young.
