Cabernet Franc

Of Bordeaux origin like Cabernet Sauvignon, but it gives rise to wines softer than that. Apparently, it could be related to the Mencía, abundant in areas of Galicia and Castilla.

Cabernet Franc is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, additional aromas can include tobacco, raspberry, bell pepper, cassis, and violets.
