2013 Cougar's Cuvee

Cougar's Cuvee

Back by popular Demand, this is the 2nd vintage Cougars Leap winery’s namesake wine – Cougar’s Cuvee. This is a truly unique, special offering of Zinfandel and Tempranillo. 

An extremely special blend of 54% Zinfandel and 46% Tempranillo.  A dark, purple-red color, the appealing aromas of ripe fruit, spice-dipped figs, and cigar box greet you. Firm and sturdy tannins are wrapped in red cherry, tobacco, and toasted oak flavors   The wine provides a wonderful accompaniment to lamb shank,  wild boar, grilled steak with a hickory rub, and herb-roasted  chicken.
