This is a fat and rich wine; full of dark fruit but with the earth and iron you often associate with the grape. A bit of mint and very, very smooth. No complaints at $25. A big winner.
The wine has a beautiful garnet colour and aromas of black cherries, mint and spice. On the palate the Aljibes Cab Franc was incredibly well balanced, with soft tannins, bright acidity and a juicy mouthfeel. Flavours of back current, stewed plums, anise and spice were immediately apparent. As the wine opened up notes of blueberries, black pepper and dark chocolate also appeared. The long, smooth finish nicely displays the smooth tannins and leaves you with that hint of chocolate and spice.
The Wine Advocate 93+ "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."
