2016 Market Collection Cabernet Merlot


Ask any farmer what the most important tool in their possession is, and they will undoubtedly reply with pruners. As vital as a heartbeat to the farmer, the pruners are never far. Today, Gary Pillitteri remains active in the vineyard, and can often be found pruning his favorite vines on the estate. These ornate shears were a gift to Gary upon the grand opening of Pillitteri Estates Winery in 1993.

The Market Cabernet Merlot is a delicious medium-bodied dry red with flavours of cherries, strawberries, black currant and hints of black peppers and spice. Barrel aged to add to the complexity and smooth the tannins, providing a medium long finish. Consider pairing with grilled meats, pizza and pasta. Makes a great choice for large dinners and a wonderful gift for a discerning wine lover.
