Wine AdvocateFermented with full clusters, the 2015 El Enemigo Malbec feels a bit closed and has a reductive personality, so decanting in advance could be a good idea. It's taken from four hectares in the Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary and was co-fermented with a bit of Cabernet Franc. This is a serious, subtle and mineral Malbec, with some austerity and a nicely textured palate. This is a serious red, only eclipsed by the Gran Enemigo bottlings. It's not really about the variety, even though it has the best Malbec grapes, as they do not have any other pure Malbec; it's mineral and precise, vertical and very fresh for 2015. 22,800 bottles produced.

Wine SpectatorA big, strapping red, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, cherry and baker's chocolate that are supported by pliant acidity and tannins. Cedary notes mix with plenty of spice on the long, complex finish. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 6,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of tire rubber mix with plum and berry on a rustic nose. This wine displays a strong grip but also shearing tartaric acidity. Smoky plum and berry flavors suggest char and hickory, finishing spicy and savory. Drink through 2020
