Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Tastes like crushed berries with a dusting of cocoa powder. Yummy with cowboy fare – A heaping plate of barbecued tri-tip, chile beans, garlic bread and a green salad.

(2011 Vintage) Teeth-staining dark red with hints of purple. Vibrant aromas of crushed red berries and cherries, notes of cola and cinnamon, and a hint of earthiness. Berry flavors explode in the mouth with cinnamon and cassis in the mid-palate leading to slight cocoa powder tannins on the finish. A very rich, full-bodied style. This wine is perfection with grilled tri-tip of beef roast—a signature dish of the Central Coastal winegrowing region. In Paso Robles, the beef is grilled chuck wagon-style over a red-oak fire. Serve with other great cowboy fare like baked beans, garlic bread, and a green salad.
