The layered and complex 2019 Gran Enemigo El Cepillo Single Vineyard has an expressive nose with a mixture of curry, nutmeg, aromatic herbs and dried flowers, perfumed and expressive. The vineyard was planted in 2000 with Cabernet Franc and some 15% Malbec that fermented in concrete and a 2,000-liter oak vat with indigenous yeasts and with 50% full clusters. This bottling is always very distinct, with incredible aromatics, a medium to full-bodied palate, 13.5% alcohol and very good freshness. It's vibrant and finishes dry and with a salty twist. 7,200 bottles were filled in July 2020. Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2019 Cabernet Franc Gran Enemigo El Cepillo also includes 15% Malbec and originates from the eponymous area within the southernmost vineyard of the Uco Valley. It underwent a 15-month aging process in foudres. In the glass, it showcases a purple hue. The nose reveals ashes, green bell pepper and blackberry, accompanied by herbal undertones and a sun-kissed essence against a cedar backdrop. Dry and lusciously juicy, the palate features fine-grained tannins and a restrained mouthfeel contributing to a taut and precisely structured yet weightless sensation. The distinct essence of ashes dominates the lingering finish. Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous
