Aljibes Cabernet Franc 2007

IMG_0734

This single varietal Cabernet Franc is a great expression of balance between power and elegance. The bouquet features toasty herbal aromas with just a hint of barely detectable floral notes. Medium bodied with blackberries, plums and spicebox on the palate, this wine is mellowed by silky tannins that play out over the long finish. 14 months in French oak might easily overtake the fine nuances of this delicate wine, but Bodega Los Aljibes uses second pass barrels and transfers the wine halfway through to large oak vats to temper the wood’s effects. Enjoy this wine now or will continue to delight the senses over the next decade. Robert Parker awarded this wine 93 points. Have it with your next roast or casserole.

Price: $29.99
