El Enemigo Malbec 2016
Elegant, with hot stone notes accenting the pure-tasting dried red fruit flavors. Details of underbrush emerge on the focused finish, showing some tarry hints. Drink now through 2024.
Gaseous berry scents come with oaky aromas on a nose that's not fully convincing. A plump, jammy palate deals oaky blackberry flavors and a hint of coffee. On the finish, this feels round and fluffy. The 2016 vintage was wet and rainy throughout Mendoza and this Malbec reflects those conditions.
