COUGAR CREST Red Wine, 'Dedication Nine' 2012

The 2012 'Dedication Nine' is another great effort from this estate. It is an interesting blend of 38% Syrah, 22% Tempranillo, 14% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Grenache. This wine begins with aromas of scorched earth, blackberry and roasted figs. This leads to flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, coffee grounds and cloves with nice weight and intensity. I could see this cellaring rather well. (Best 2016-2026) - March, 2016 (OB)
