Natalie's Score: 89/100

Beautifully balanced and fresh, El Enemigo is a medium-plus-bodied mostly Malbec (with a splash of Cabernet Franc) produced by Adrianna Catena and Alejandro Vigil, juicy with dark plum, blueberry and crushed raspberry flavours finishing long on the palate. The back label reads: At the end of the journey, we remember only have one battle: the one we fought against ourselves, the original enemy. The one that defined us. El Enimgo translates to frenemy, the enemy who pretends to be your friend. Pair with a meat lover's pizza.

Malbec food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin, pasta with rich meat sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

El Enemigo 2015 is a mostly Malbec with some Cabernet Franc blended in adding lift of the blend. Lovely, pure fruit flavours of blueberry, raspberry, mulberry, savoury herbs, soft spice and flinty flavours fresh on the palate. Tannins are velvety and flavour match for match, pair with a grilled hanger or skirt steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
