Do not let this little lady fool you with her light, semi-translucent hue. With a brilliant medium ruby color and taste, Cowgirl’s Don’t Cry is sure to leave a lasting impression as any strong, sassy woman would. The nose is bright with spicy, earthy, fresh-picked strawberry fruit and dried orange peel. She starts off feisty with the spicy notes of cinnamon and bramble, but then softens and becomes flirtatious with the taste of sweet strawberry on the palate. The wine wrangles a firm backbone of acidity and tannin that will reward a few seasons in a bottle or a bit of time in your glass and pairs strongly with a lightly blackened salmon, a traditional trout, and even a barnyard favorite, barbecue. Saddle up and discover a Grenache that’s reserved for the resilient.
