Pistol Pete’s Crimson Legacy is a specially crafted Cabernet with rustic cherry and ripe red berry on the nose and notes of light toast. Cherry and fruit notes are accentuated on the palate alongside a touch of cocoa. Strong, smooth tannins intermingle nicely with toasted oak and fruit for a balanced drinking experience. Locally designed by Randle Dominguez and awarded a 2020 Platinum Design Award from MarCom.

Rebellious Priests

Who knew that New Mexico was the frontier of American winemaking? In 1629, Fray García de Zúñiga and Antonio de Arteaga smuggled vines out of Spain to quench their thirst for sacramental wine. Planted south of present-day Socorro, these were the first grapevines cultivated for wine production in the U.S.

New Mexico State University has long played a significant role in developing grape-growing and winemaking in the state. In 1920, Giovanni Giorgio Rinaldi enlisted the help of faculty at New Mexico College of Agriculture & Mechanic Arts, now NMSU, to experiment with different varieties and improve grape production throughout the state.

New Mexico is now home to sixty wineries that produce over 900,000 gallons of wine annually. New Mexico State University is proud to continue to honor and support our state’s heritage of winemaking by introducing Pistol Pete’s Crimson Legacy.

Proudly crafted by the Lescombes family, this luxuriously smooth Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of New Mexico winemaking. We invite you to raise a glass and celebrate the continuing legacy embodied in every pour.

Pairs with game and red meat such as steaks, roasts, shanks, chops, burgers, or charcuterie. Also an ideal accompaniment to cheeses like cheddar or gouda.
