WineO Mark Review

This is a Malbec-based red blend (Bordeaux blends). El Enemigo produces some of the best Malbecs in the world and this one may be their best out of the bunch!

This wine has a deep purple color on the glass with red highlights. It has an intense aroma filled with blueberry, plum, cocoa, violets, and pepper.

On the palate, it’s a medium to full-bodied wine that is rich and has complex layers.  You can taste the black cherries, blackberries, plums, vanilla, and chocolate with lots of earthy notes along with hints of black pepper, oak, and leather. It has chalky tannins, a silky smooth texture, and a smoky long finish.
