Join us in welcoming Michael Laroque, Regional Manager of Mundovino Wines, for a tasting of Bodegas Alenna's Enemigo Wines.

“Two romantics, a winemaker (Alejandro Vigil), and a historian (Adrianna Catena) - go back in time to capture an era when European imigrants recently settled in Argentina, sought to make wines as fine, and finer than those of their homelands.”

We will be tasting the following wines:

2016 El Enemigo Chardonnay...$25.99
Rated 98/100 James Suckling

2014 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc....$22.99

Plus taste a
Perfect rating from The Wine Advocate!

2013 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Cabernet Franc...$109.99
(only 1 bottle of this one will be opened, until it is gone)
It's very intense and powerful, but at the same time, there is a kind of lightness on the palate that makes if feel light on its feet but with great inner power. The peppery character appears after some time, giving it a Chinon-like twist, and it also reminds me of my favorite Bordeaux, Pomerol's Lafleur. This is definitely world-class and worth lying down, as it should develop further complexity in bottle. This is one of those wines where the only improvement I can think of is having magnums rather than bottles. Bravo! Some 3,000 bottles produced.
