The spicy 2017 Gran Enemigo Agrelo Single Vineyard has notes of cloves and sweet spices (recurrent notes through the vintages in this wine), which, coupled with the fact that this is Cabernet Franc (with 15% Malbec), gives a different profile. In 2017 they only watered this vineyard three times despite the fact that the year was very dry; because the soil retains a lot of water with its high content in clay and the soil is always cooler than the air, it's like a buffer for the high temperatures. So, the place behaves quite well in warm and dry years, and it shows. It's medium to full-bodied with round tannins and a mellow texture. It's tasty and finishes dry and long. Impressive for the vintage. 6,000 bottles were filled in July 2018. - Luis Gutiérrez: 31st Mar 2021

2 Apr, 2021 – A full-bodied red with aromas of black cherry, blueberry, chocolate orange and hazelnut. Velvety, finely-integrated tannins support a deep core of spiced dark fruit. Wonderfully concentrated and flavorful, yet balanced and fresh. Drink or hold.
