El Enemigo Bonarda 2017
Bonarda is a stealthy red wine option from Argentina gaining in popularity. It’s actually a surprise that we’ve missed it until now as it’s Argentina’s second most widely planted red grape! This Bonarda shows a deep violet color with bluish reflections. The nose is intense and complex. Intense aromas of ripe black fruit, blackberries, raspberries, black cherries, chocolate and liquor, with some spicy notes of fresh herbs provided by the small amount of Cabernet Franc in the blend. The taste has a sweet impact with silky tannins and aromas of ripe black and red fruits with notes of licorice and vanilla. Its natural acidity is refreshing. By its concentration and complexity the finish is long and persistent.
Try with roasted lamb and, of course, grilled beef.
