Product Description

A varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from Bodega Enate, the red wine Enate Cabernet-Cabernet is one of the botlings of the "Varietals Collection."

The first vintage of this Spanish red wine from Somontano was released in 2014. Like the rest of the varietal wines of the collection, this wine aims to express the particular qualities of a grape variety in a transparent way.

This varietal red wine from Somontano was sourced from the best plots of the winery: Salas Bajas and Alcanetos.

After a meticulous vinification with a long maceration period, winemaker Jesús Artajona decided to age Enate Cabernet-Cabernet 2016 in new French oak barrels for 18 months.

The classy label of this varietal Cabernet Sauvignon from Enate was designed by the prestigious Ibiza-based German painter Erwin Bechtold.

Aerate this Reserva red wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Enate Cabernet-Cabernet is medium purple with some reddish glints and a garnet rim.


Precise, deep and structured, this varietal Cabernet Sauvignon carries rich aromas of ripe red fruit, menthol, vegetables, spices, dry earth, balsam, chocolate, charcoal and carob beans.


Balanced, brooding and fresh, this red wine from Enate has a steely acidity, some grippy tannins, and a long, balsamic finish.

Our personal opinion

Refreshingly non-pyraziney, the red wine Enate Cabernet-Cabernet 2016 is one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon wines this side of the Pyrenees.
