Food Pairings for K Vintners Syrah Cougar Hills Walla Walla Valley
Once again classic Cougar Hills. This wine opens with black olive, dried orange peel, and pink peppercorns, then gives way to sea salt and iodine with a baseline of roasted earth. One Rockin' Wine. Barrel aged 18 months in 40% new French aok. Alcohol 14.5%. 460 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 94 points by Rhone Report: Straight-up funky and wild, the 2009 K Vintners Syrah Cougar Hills boast rock star aromatics of hung game, lavender, loads of black olive, and deep, earthy, and yet beautifully pure dark fruit characteristics. Full bodied and balanced, with a sexy, lush texture and a superb, long, and mineral-laced finish, this up-front beauty can be enjoyed now or cellared for 3-5 years. Fun stuff and hard to imagine this coming from anywhere else.
