Washington State University alumni Annette Bergevin and Dave Harvey of Bergevin Lane Vineyards in Walla Walla,
Washington, have created the latest edition in the WSU Alumni Association's Cougar Collectors' Series. The inspiration for 2014 Cougar III,
Harvey said, came from the number: he used three grapes, one each from the Cougar-owned vineyards he works with – Bergevin Springs, Les Collines and Stone Tree. The final blend – 38 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 36 percent Merlot and 26
percent Malbec – resulted from a series of four in-house tastings of various combinations. Bergevin Lane produced 980 cases of Cougar III.
