Franzia Chillable Red is a popular blended varietal that is more light-bodied than traditional red wines like merlot or cabernet sauvignon, but it has a richer flavor than light blush wines. The taste is slightly sweet and fruity, making it suitable for pairing with lighter dishes like salad, desserts or seafood. It is available in both bottles and handy wine-on-tap boxes in 3 L and 5 L sizes.
