Wine of the Week - Cougar Vineyard 2008 Aglianico


I don't usually comment on the color of wine when I do these little write-ups, but this one was unique. There was an odd rustiness to the color. I wasn't quite sure what to make of that. Turns out I didn't need to worry.

Blooming roses and abundant strawberry scents take center stage. I also noticed some spices - cinnamon and nutmeg.

On tasting, there's a brief fruitiness up front, followed quickly by delicious earthy tones which I love. Finishes with a nice tobacco and black licorice. This is a great one.

12.3% alcohol
