96 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "[$100 list] Gran Enemigo Cabernet Franc 2016 is a unique, intense little pearl. Mixed with 15% Malbec, it is all open expression, delivering violets, sour cherry and blood with wet stone and hints of herb alongside subtle notes of arugula and dry flowers. In the mouth, it’s extremely energetic, the tannins filling out the profile and marshaling the flow with just the right measure of chalk. Lingers comfortably at the back of the mouth without losing its equilibrium. Outstanding. Drink: 2020-2032. (Oct 2020)"
96 points Tim Atkin, MW: "'Finesse, finesse, finesse,' says Ale Vigil of this brilliant Gualtallary paso doble of Cabernet Franc and 15% Malbec. Fermented with 50% whole bunches and aged in venerable foudres, it’s a classy, polished, effortlessly nuanced co-fermentation with fine tannins, chalky zip and length, impressive focus and fresh, tangy black fruit. 2021-28. (2020)"
96 points James Suckling: "The blue fruit, crushed chalk and stone are so exciting here, as always. Full-bodied with fresh fruit and fine, vertical tannin texture going through the center palate. Softness and balance throughout. So drinkable now, but will improve with age. (4/2/20)"
