Wine of the Weekend

Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc 2018

Welcome to fall, when apples get picked, leaves change colour, and the local harvest comes in! When dinnertime means oven roasted veggies and stews – meals that warm up your house before you eat, and warm you up as you eat. For these dishes, you need a good “food wine”; a wine that is built to balance your meal and refresh your palate for the next bite, then the next sip, then the next bite… you get the idea. Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc is a great food wine. Its fruity nature, bright acidity and structured tannins will have your palate ready for the next bite of anything!

Tasting Notes: Rogue’s Lot is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc bursting with black and red berry fruit, supple tannins, lively acidity, soft floral notes and subtle oak spices.

Enjoy With: Grilled meats and sausages, roasted poultry, pizza, pasta, stuffed peppers or semi-hard cheeses.

Style: A dry, medium-bodied, fruity red wine.

Terroir/Region: Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc is grown and made in the Niagara Peninsula region of Ontario. The Cabernet Franc vineyards tend to ripen before the Cabernet Sauvignon, but both grapes are some of the last to be harvested each year. This ensures soft tannins and full fruit flavours.

Producer: Strewn has been a long-time homegrown favourite. It offers a wide range of wines and levels of sophistication to its local and international fans with classics like Rogue’s Lot being available at the LCBO, while treasures including terroir-driven selections and back-vintages from select stellar years are available from the winery.

Availability: Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc is available in the Ontario VQA section of your local LCBO. It also happens to be $1.00 off until October 11, so now is a great time to stock up!
