This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

The Wanted Cab 2016

It’s time to put your game face on for this Sunday! J. Lo and Shakira will be headlining the Super Bowl’s halftime show while the Chiefs and 49ers take a mid-game break, so make sure you have your glasses filled and munchies ready. This week, we have picked something spicy enough to match our two leading ladies, and powerful enough to butt heads with any of the guys on the gridiron. The Wanted Cab is just what you ‘wanted’ for the Super Bowl (you saw that coming, right?).

Tasting Notes: Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the vegan friendly Wanted Cab hails from southern Italy, but its style comes straight from California. Red berries, blackberry jam, vanilla and oak spices rise from the glass and linger on the palate. Silky tannins and juicy, balanced acids complete the finish, making it perfect for game day.

Enjoy With: Pizza, nachos, pulled pork, ribs… all your game-day favourites! If you’re going a bit fancier, it’s also perfect with hard cheeses and charcuterie.

Style: A medium-bodied, smooth red wine.

Terroir/Region: The Wanted Cab comes from the sun-drenched Italian vineyards of Puglia – the heel of the boot, and Sicily – the island balancing on the toe of the boot. These are the lands of ripe grapes and soft, juicy red wines. Just sip and discover!

Producer: The Wanted Cab was created by the team at Orion Wines. Although they employ six winemakers, creating a swiss army knife-like winemaking team, Orion Wines was founded by three veterans of the global wine trade with a simple philosophy: produce the best and most interesting wines possible at fair prices.

Availability: The Wanted Cab 2016 is available in the Italy section of your local LCBO and for online ordering. Grab a bottle for the game and if it’s a winner, come back for more since it will be $3.00 off as of Monday, February 3!
