Cougar Crest Chardonnay 2006

Thursday, August 21, 2008

In continued supplication to the Pacific Northwest sun gods, another in a series of white wine reviews.

Cougar Crest is a Walla Walla area producer. The winery – already receiving high scores from Wine Spectator for a number of years – received a significant boost from Wine Library TV last year.

I liked this wine quite a bit, which is not surprising given my preference for chardonnays fermented in stainless steel.

Next, we’ll take a brief diversion to Lost River Winery before returning to the whites and, hopefully, the sun.

Cougar Crest Chardonnay 2006

Mineral, lychee, pear, and golden delicious apple aromas leap from the glass. On the taste, this wine is dry and crisp with a touch of mineral and apple on the back end.

$20
