Cougar Crest 2005 Reserve Syrah
Walla Walla Valley, Washington

Washington Syrah in general produces a sexy style of wine. We particularly like this Syrah for its smoky, white pepper and leather notes and its sultry mouthfeel. Complex, with good length, it will appeal to even the most sophisticated wine lover. Try it with grilled pork or beef or with tomato-based vegetarian dishes.

Rating: 14/20
