Winemaker's Notes:

Dark red with hints of purple. Aromas of ripe plum, cherry and cassis are accented with a hint of cola and vanilla. In the mouth, the flavors are of rich, ripe plums and juicy berries with cassis and slight cola and fine, polished tannins on the finish.

Delicious with all beef preparations including thick grilled Cowboy steaks, Tri-Tip, roasts, stews and burgers and other hearty dishes.

About Purple Cowboy:

The grapes for Purple Cowboy come primarily from Paso Robles, the largest appellation in San Luis Obispo County on California’s famed Central Coast. Over the years, Paso Robles was known for producing structured Cabernet Sauvignon. More recently, a group of winemakers known as the Rhone Rangers has garnered attention with Syrah, a grape well-suited to this warmer region. The Paso Robles AVA is sometimes called Cowboy Wine Country, a reference to its historic identity as a ranching and farming area. Daytime temperatures often top 90 Degrees, but in the evening the vines are cooled by fog cascading down the eastern slope of the Santa Lucia range which separates Paso from the Pacific Coast. Purple Cowboy is sourced from the eastern half of the AVA which is warmer, drier and typically produces full-bodied wines with rich fruit character, soft tannins and balanced acidity.
