93 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Ale Vigil loves blending Malbec and Cabernet Franc and does it as well as anyone in Argentina. This is a 92/8 cuvée from vines at 1,470 metres in Gualtallary. Focused, fresh and racy, with some tobacco leaf and white pepper spice, blackberry and black cherry flavours and the understated wood that’s a feature of the El Enemigo style. 2022-2028. (2021)"
93 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "[$25 list] The 2018 Malbec has some 8% Cabernet Franc in the blend, and it has only 13.5% alcohol while retaining very good acidity. The grapes were sourced from Gualtallary and were co-fermented. It's a serious, subtle and mineral Malbec, with some austerity and shy varietal aromas of violets and wild herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with terrific texture and very clean and focused flavors, and it has the chalky texture from the limestone-rich soils. 28,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2019 after 12 months in ancient oak foudres. Drink: 2021-2025. (Mar 2021)"
