El Gran Enemigo SV Gualtallary shows a deep purple color with red highlights. Its aromas are intense and elegant. Cabernet Franc brings sweet spices, black pepper and light notes of eucalyptus and thyme. Malbec brings notes of ripe black fruits, blackberries and black cherries. The oak aging gives a touch of chocolate and vanilla to blend. The taste is complex, sweet impact with structured tannins, and a very long and persistent finish. This wine was made in honor of the old Pomerol style where Cabernet Franc was blended with the other Bordeaux varieties. Pairing: This wine is excellent with grilled meats and various cheeses.

Not far behind the 2013, the 2014 Gran Enemigo El Cepillo Single Vineyard has the same aromatic profile and a complex nose, perhaps with a tad less intensity and complexity, with those recurring aromas of saffron, thyme, lemongrass, curry and cereals. However, the palate seems a little more refined and polished and the oak better integrated, with very fine, elegant tannins and supple, tasty flavors. 4,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2017.

This is a rich and glorious wine with so much blackberry and salty character. Light hints of cloves and green coffee beans. Full-bodied, layered and tight. Focused and racy. Cabernet franc with cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, merlot and malbec, Drink or hold.

Made in small quantities, like all of the Gran Enemigo blends, this Cabernet Franc/Malbec combo comes from one of the most westerly vineyards in the Uco Valley. Smoky, spicy, sun dried tomato notes with some green herbs and a note of Angostura bitters. 2018-24. Alcohol: 13.9%

Enticing black fruit and violet followed by an elegant, yet powerful palate, with attractive notes of black cherry fruit and oak spice. A lovely drink.

Smooth, savory aromas of prune and blackberry are foresty and lightly herbal. This round-bodied Cab Franc from Tupungato is solid and balanced, with controlled tannins. Oaky flavors of plum, herbal tea and smoke finish savory. Drink through 2023; contains 15% Malbec.

Dense and powerful, with notes of iron and underbrush to the dark currant, black olive and raspberry flavors, backed by juicy acidity. Cocoa powder details fill in the suave finish. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made.
