The cow catcher is the front of the train engine guard, and speaks to the railroad theme of this winery. An outstanding “second” wine, this value blend drinks like a much pricier wine. It's ready to go, with broad, softened, mixed red fruits, baking spices, toasty barrel notes and a smooth, gliding, lingering finish.
