We spent a long time choosing the wines we would sell, looking (and drinking!) far and wide for the best possible wine at different price points. We chose "El Enemigo" as our Value/Money wine.
Similar wines usually sell for more than twice the price... this particular vintage has been featured as one of the top wines in the world.
Why do we sell it? There is simply no better wine at this price point... This is not a product you will usually find at your supermarket and it pairs amazingly well with meat.
This wine is the result of a joint venture between Adrianna Catena, daughter of Nicolas Catena, and Alejandro Vigil, Chief Winemaker at Bodega Catena Zapata, If you dont know who they are... that is fine, neither did we. Turns out the Catena family has been making some of Argentina's most acclaimed wines for quite some time.
This wine comes from Piedemonte al Sur, located in the southern foothills of Luján 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.
This wine pairs extremely well with our meats. Particularly beef. It is rich and concentrated and presents aromas of black fruit, cherry and dark berryfruit on the nose followed in the palate by a full-bodied wine with flavors of spice, blackberry, black cherry, pepper and a slight floral character. The finish is elegant and lengthy.
This wine is very highly rated by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93/100 and James Suckling 92/100.
