El Enemigo Malbec, 2018, 750ml
A joint venture between Adrianna Catena, daughter of Nicolas Catena, and Alejandro Vigil, Chief Winemaker at Bodega Catena Zapata, El Enemigo Malbec is produced at Piedemonte al Sur, located in the southern foothills of Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza. The facility is named for the unique aspect of Mendoza’s high altitude winemaking region nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. A serious, subtle & mineral Malbec, with some austerity & shy varietal aromas of violets & wild herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with terrific texture & very clean & focused flavors, & it has the chalky texture from the limestone-rich soils.
