Tasting Notes: The grapes are sourced from Gualtallary, limestone soils, round rocks and extreme high altitude - ideal for making a wine of elegance and ageability.
The winemaking is traditional Mendoza style. Alejandro brought old 100 year old Alsatian foudres (barrels) from Italy and had them re-toasted and reassembled in Mendoza. The gentleness of this wood, brings out the true character of cool climate cabernet franc.
Namesake: El Enemigo (The Enemy): At the end of the journey, we remember only one battle. The one we fought against ourselves, the original enemy. The one that defined us.
