Natalie's Score: 92/100

From Aleanna Catena & Alejandro Vigil, El Enemigo 2018 Cabernet Franc has 10% Malbec to the mix. Grapes are sourced from Old Vines grown in the heart of Gualtallary, Tupungato, at the foot of the Andes Mountains in lime and stony soils, more than 1400 metres above sea level. The wine then ages for six months in French oak barrels (20% new). Bright, juicy and medium-plus-bodied, look for crushed raspberry, cracked pepper, wild herbs vibrant and lifted on the palate. Drinking beautifully now.

Cabernet Franc food pairings: Porchetta, meat-lover's pizza, lamb chops from the grill.
