2006 - 92+ POINTS ROBERT PARKERS WINE ADVOCATE

The 2006 Aljibes Cabernet Franc (100%) was the only wine produced by the Bodega at this level due to the challenges of a very difficult year. The wine spent 14 months in second use French oak. Smoke, herbs, mineral, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of this savory, ripe, elegant, already complex Cabernet Franc. Medium-bodied, velvety-textured, and impeccably balanced, it will evolve for 2-3 years and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2021.

These new releases from Bodega Los Aljibes demonstrate what can be achieved by talented vignerons working in selected regions of La Mancha. Bodegas Los Aljibes is one of the up-and-coming stars of La Mancha.

2007 - 93+ ROBERT PARKER

The 2007 Aljibes Cabernet Franc is slightly better; more perfumed, rounder, a bit more complex, and with extra length. It is an awesome value in pure Cabernet Franc that will evolve for 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2022 if not longer.
