El Enemigo Cabernet Franc 2019
The 2019 Cabernet Franc from the Uco Valley contains 10% of Malbec and spent 15 months in foudres. Violet in hue. The raw nose offers a whiff of stem and herbal hints with a touch of sour cherry and a fruity backdrop. Quite smooth and juicy with a degree of tension and a frank expression, the dark fruit flavors are compact at the back of the mouth, leading into the lengthy finish.
Light- to medium-bodied in style, showing loam and pepper accents to the plum and cherry core, with mineral-laced tannins folding in. Drink now. 2,400 cases made, 1,800 cases imported.
