Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc 2017

Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc 2017

This past weekend marked Cabernet Sauvignon Day. Globally there are over 340,000 hectares of Cab Sauv planted, making it the most plentiful red wine grape in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon emerged when the French crossed a red grape, Cabernet Franc with a white grape, Sauvignon Blanc, to make what is now the world’s favourite red. Strewn Rogue’s Lot blends both Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc into one smooth, satisfying sip. Cheers to the Cabernet family!

Tasting Note: Rogue’s Lot is bursting with red berry fruit, soft tannins, lively acidity and subtle oak spices. Try it with a light chill on a warm day!

Enjoy With: Grilled meats, pizza, pasta or stuffed peppers.

Style: A dry, medium-bodied red wine.

Terroir / Region: Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc is grown and made in the Niagara Peninsula region of Ontario. Lake Ontario moderates temperatures in this area allowing red grapes that favour warmer climates (like Cabernet) to ripen well in the pockets of warmer air, called microclimates in the wine biz, which form throughout the region.

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 in the LCBO and lots of treasures, including terroir driven selections and back vintages from select stellar years, being available from the winery.

Availability: Strewn Rogue’s Lot Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc is available year-round in the Ontario VQA section of your local LCBO. It also happens to be $1.00 off until September 16, so now is a great time to stock up!
