92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The aromatic, floral and elegant 2019 Bonarda has 15% Cabernet Franc blended with the Bonarda from El Mirador in Rivadavia. It's fresh, and has moderate 13.5% alcohol, juicy fruit and fine-grained tannins. It matured in ancient oak vats for 15 months.

92pts James Suckling

Aromas of blueberries, ripe plums, bitter chocolate, cloves, licorice and lemon leaves. Medium-bodied with fine, fleshy tannins. Plush and youthful core of dark fruit. Nicely framed.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

Light notes of berries and vanilla emerge from the glass. A rich palate offers ripe cherry, raspberry and hints of dark chocolate. It has gentle acidity and smooth tannins that leads to a pleasant finish. This is a classic Bonarda that is medium in weight and full of red fruit flavors.

Winemaker Notes

This Bonarda shows a deep violet color with bluish reflections. The nose is intense and complex. Intense aromas of ripe black fruit, blackberries, raspberries, black cherries, chocolate and liquor, with some spicy notes of fresh herbs provided by the Cabernet Franc appear. The taste has a sweet impact with silky tannins and aromas of ripe black and red fruits with notes of licorice and vanilla. Its natural acidity is refreshing. By its concentration and complexity the finish is long and persistent.

Enjoy this wine alongside roast lamb, empanadas, and light pastas dishes.

Blend: 85% Bonarda, 15% Malbec

Winery Notes

El Enemigo translates as the enemy. Nodding to the fact that at the end of any journey, most remember only one battle — the one fought within (the original enemy). This is the battle that defines us. The wines of El Enemigo are a tribute to those internal battles that make us who we are, brought to fruition by a winemaker, Alejandro Vigil, and a historian, Adrianna Catena who share a love of wine and reach back in time to capture the era when European immigrants first settled in Argentina. These settlers sought to make wines as fine, and finer, than those of their old homeland. By 1936, Malbec and Petit Verdot were the most widely planted fine varietals in Argentina, their blend considered the ultimate in refinement and aging potential.
