Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red Hrzn 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for Purple Cowboy come for the most part from Paso Robles, the largest AVA in San Luis Obispo County on California’s famed Central Coast. Over the years, Paso Robles was known for producing structured Cabernet Sauvignon, in more recent times a group of winemakers known as the Rhone Rangers has garnered attention with Syrah, a grape well-suited to this warm region. The appellation is sometimes called Cowboy Wine Country, owing to its previous identity before winegrowing as a ranching and farming area.

I am no expert, but I know what I like, and I like this wine. No, it is not terribly complex, and I won't sit there waxing poetic about it. But it is tasty and paired well with the filet and bernaise sauce. As others pointed out, an easy, tasty, uncomplicated wine to enjoy with friends, and there is nothing wrong with that!

No nose at all. An inexpensive blend of Cabernet and Syrah. Very easy to drink. Nothing special, unique, complex, or sustainable here. Just a happy bottle of red to enjoy with friends and family over a barbecue. And very inexpensive as well. And what's wrong with that? Cheers!

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. - WineryVarietal Composition: A red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and SyrahAlc: 13.5%
