El Enemigo Malbec 2017

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis malbec, bolstered by 10 percent cabernet franc, was fermented by indigenous yeasts, using 50% whole cluster. It then aged in oak foudres for 15 months. The result is a spicy, dark-fruited malbec, showing pepper, cloves, smoke, and juicy blackberry. With some time in the glass, the fruit comes more to the foreground, but I find this a touch rustic. It has impressive freshness and depth, though, and it's quite an interesting take on malbec.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 39.99 select private retailers AB 37.05 select private retailers Producer: Bodega AleannaDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
