Pillitteri Cabernet Merlot 2013 tasting note
This ruby-red Cabernet-Merlot blend from Pillitteri Estates Winery offers aromas of blueberry, blackberry, red and dark cherry. Fruity aromas are followed by floral notes combined with spices like vanilla and clove and coffee. On the palate flavors of dark cherries are more dominant, followed by a mix of plum, coffee, and chocolate, as well as pepper spice. Moreover, nice balance between alcohol, tannins, and acidity make this Cabernet Merlot blend very drinkable and easy to pair with food. Tonight, I paired it with a veal steak in balsamic vinegar, rosemary and teriyaki sauce, complemented with french green beans salad. Not too bad!
