REGION NOTES

Intense color layer very tall, very clean and bright. The nose highlights the aromatic potency, well assembled timber with fruit and spices. In the mouth it shows the power of ripe tannins, the wine produced is wide, long and elegant. The 2005 Aljibes is a blend of 35% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 30% Cabernet Franc aged for 12 months in French and American oak. Drink this lengthy effort from 2012 to 2020.
