So for my wine pick this week I tried something very special this past weekend from one of our local wineries here in Niagara-on-the-Lake. As you know back in January we had our annual Shimmer of Gold Icewine Tour and visited Charlie Pillitteri of Pillitteri Estates Winery.

Although there were many fine wines,the Pilletteri Riserva Famiglia Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 was a standout in my opinion. Charlie, gave me a bottle and well this weekend I tried it again. It proved to be a stunner once more!.

Full bodied, barrel aged, appassimento style Cabernet Sauvignon.Notes of cedar, dried fruits with a meaty and eucalyptus finish.  Age 10-15 years, smooth firm tannins.Definitely something for a special occasion. Available at the winery $78.20. www.Pillitteri.com
