Realism

Delicious, balanced and very elegant, today’s 2007 Cougar Crest Cabernet Sauvignon was the bright star of our recent tasting. The wine really delighted our entire tasting panel.

This delicious wine is balanced, elegant and complex, with earthiness and bright fruit that are harmonized in perfectly even proportion.

We don’t feature many Washington state wines. Perhaps this is because we are so spoiled with our superb California wines available in our own backyard. For today’s wine, we went far afield - and boy are we glad! Today’s Washington gem is a true delight.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Slightly opaque with ruby highlights and a dark heart of deep crimson.

Smell:

Earth, cherry and sweet tobacco dominate initially. As the wine opens, it reveals lovely, warm and savory aromas of rich blackberry, smoked blueberry, dried wild mushroom and the homey aroma of hearth.

Taste:

Silky and elegant with great structure that delivers black cherry, dark chocolate, espresso bean, cherry cordial, mixed dark fruit compote and a hint of dried thyme.

Finish:

Balanced and elegant with dark fruits and earthy flavors that go on and on and on…

Pairing:

Enjoy this very food friendly wine with a grilled pork loin rubbed with fresh herbs and freshly ground black pepper.
