Pairs wonderfully with not running away from cougars.
You know, a lot of people told us you can’t grow grapes in the Cougar Hills. Cougars will get to ‘em, they said. And you know what? They were right. We tried growing there for a whole season, but them mountain lions would come out and ravage the vines. Ravaged some of the field workers, too. So we said, fine, we’ll move the vineyard. No more Cougar Hills.
Well, it turned out Cougar Hollow wasn’t that much of an improvement. See, it had cougars in it, too. And they weren’t no hollow cougars, neither. They were the regular, bitey type. Seems like we had made another tactical error, so we went and pulled up roots again.
In retrospect, Cougar Pack Meadows wasn’t the smartest place to relocate. Makin’ wine near a cougar’s lot easier than makin’ it near a whole pack of ‘em. And seeing as it was in meadow, there wasn’t nowhere to hide. At least in Cougar Hollow we had the trees to duck behind.
It goes without saying that moving to Cougar Pit Breeding Grounds was a grave mistake.
Anyway, we’re happy to have returned to the Cougar Hills. It’s good to be back where we started, which by comparison feels downright cougar-free. We’re a bit short-staffed, but excited to be producing great wines, made with love, dedication, and mortal fear of cougars.
2007 Estate Grown Syrah, Walla Walla Valley 750ml 3-Pack
Cougar Crest Estate Syrah is a blend of all of their vineyard blocks of Syrah. Even some of the Reserve and Vineyard designated lots are included. They have found that blending wines from their different vineyard sites makes a more interesting wine. Their 2002 Estate Syrah was #33 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the World in 2004 using these same vineyard sites.
The Cougar Crest estate vineyard Syrah has been highly rated and recognized as one of the best in the world. Rich, full-bodied flavors of plum jam, berries, spice, coriander, and a hint of white pepper have a smooth mouth feel. Wonderful notes of mocha, fruit, and spice entwine in the long finish. This wine was co-fermented with 3% Viognier and a blend of estate vineyards in the Walla Walla AVA. Cougar Crest continues to produce this wine as a unique expression of the Walla Walla Valley which they call home. Experience the best that Washington can offer.
Scott Drennan from Cougar Crest tells why they love their Syrahs in Walla Walla.

Cougar Crest Estate Winery
Deborah and David Hansen
Walla Walla, WA
A True Estate Winery
Established in 2001, Cougar Crest Estate Winery is located in the Walla Walla Valley of Washington State. Walla Walla Valley is recognized as the premier place to grow grapes in Washington, and Cougar Crest is one of the finest wineries in the region.
The agency that regulates Washington wineries considers estate vineyards so important they have a legal definition that must be strictly adhered to, in order to use the term “Estate.” Their goal and ours is to make sure that Cougar Crest is the steward of the land and of the winery.
