Review:

There's no denying that finding a single varietal is no easy task and even more so when looking for one that's both pleasant and expressive. Aljibes Cabernet Franc fulfils all these requirements, a silky and delicate single varietal from La Mancha.

Bodega Los Aljibes is housed in a building that's in the typical La Mancha style, surrounded by 178 hectares of vineyards, at a height of almost a thousand metres. In fact, this is a determining factor in the style of its wines; the strong contrast in day and night temperatures due to the altitude enables a slow maturation which enhances the aromatic element and freshness of the wines. The land is poor in organic matter, with high levels of limestone which confer an extra degree of elegance on the wine.

Even at first sight there's evidence of less extraction than in other Cabernet Francs, as it appears an intense colour but of medium density. On the nose, delicate liqueur notes are revealed with floral and spicy aromas. The palate is restrained as regards the tannic element, as the varietal dictates; fresh, juicy and balsamic, with sweet tannins. Toasty nuances emerge, smoky touches and aromas of olive paste, cooled down by mineral notes and hints of recently cut grass. Rounded, complex yet very easy to figure out, a first-rate gateway to the world of the Cabernet Franc.
