The Spanish red wine Augustus Cabernet Franc has a nice, medium-low cherry-coloured robe with some garnet tinges.
Very expressive and fresh, this crianza red wine from Penedès exhibits some delicate aromas of lilies and violets, alongside some vegetal notions, hints of wild berries and notes of toast, clove, Jamaican pepper and cocoa. An understated, yet highly suggestive personality this wine has.
Pleasant and elegant, this wine by Augustus Forum has a smooth, suave body and a savoury texture. Red fruit, green bell pepper, white pepper and some floral remembrances. Very good acidity and mild tannins. Clean, fresh finish.

Cab Franc geek here. I tried this after dozens of good or very good Loire Cab Francs. Nothing to regret. Nice varietal character with a medium body. Very satisfying.
