A concentrated red wine with aromas of ripe red and black fruit accompanied by hints of oak and touches of violets, graphite and peat. The palate is meaty, crisp and pleasant. A medium-bodied wine with precise acidity and austere tannins. The finish is long, pleasant and mineral.

El Enemigo is a romantic winery at heart. The concept was born September 2009 as Alejandro Vigil and Adrianna Catena walked back from the Argentine Embassy in London, where Nicolas Catena had just received the Decanter Man of the Year Award. Adrianna, a historian, and Alejandro, a soils engineer, spoke of their shared love of philosophy, wine and history – so they decided to create wines together in reflection of this. Not that their respect for tradition means they stick within its limits, following the status quo has never been El Enemigo's bag.
