This Cabernet Franc is ruby red in color with soft violet tones. The nose has intense aromas and concentrated notes of cassis, ripe currants, and sweet spices including black pepper and cloves. His tenure provides integrated oak notes of cedar and vanilla. Fresh impact and excellent structure on the palate, reminiscent of ripe red fruits with hints of eucalyptus and tagged black pepper. This wine has an excellent balance and elegance with a well-structured, persistent finish. Food Pairing: Pair this Cabernet Franc with grilled game meats.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc is pure Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary fermented with 50% whole clusters. It felt riper than the 2013, and there are less herbal aromas and more notes from the plum-like spectrum. What I like here is the tastiness in the palate and the fine tannins, the chalky sensation that provides an almost salty finish. The palate is a lot fresher than the nose points at and the acidity is quite high. It slowly develops a note of curry, getting spicier and spicier in the glass. 35,000 bottles produced.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy, woodsy, spicy aromas of cherry and cassis set up a tannic palate with more than enough grip. Baked oaky berry flavors come with mint and spice notes, while this feels scratchy on a fiery finish. Drink through 2020.

Wine SpectatorA taut red, with some muscle behind the dark plum, raspberry and hot stone flavors. Sanguine notes show midpalate, leading to a finish that offers chocolate and spice hints. Drink now through 2019. 1,000 cases imported.
