Mission Codename Red Beauty

Are you always on the hunt for wine with a little more oomph? Craving a red with something extra? A full-throttle, no holds barred kind of experience? Well, here’s your new, gotta-have-it, ultra juicy, bargain red blend from fan-favorite Ty Caton. An indulgent, extravagant Zinfandel-based blend that rivals The Prisoner - for a fraction of the price! Absolute no-brainer at $17!

This combines a majority Zinfandel (68%) with Petite Sirah (27%) and a drop of Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). It delivers a PLUSH core of blackberry jam wrapped with a layer of chocolate, dusty plums, a dash of pepper, and rich leather all wrapped into a lavishly hedonistic experience. Despite the power, it doesn’t go overboard in the alcohol, clocking in at 14.3%. Exceedingly well-balanced, this is exactly what you want from a red blend - a full, rich mouthfeel, ample silky tannin, robust fruit that sings. Perfect for pasta night, pizza night, braised short ribs. Ravioli with a hearty bolognese would be out of this world.

Ty’s wines have been featured on Wine Spies nearly 30 times in these last 11+ years. We keep going back for more because the value proposition is always so compelling.

Got a few spots left in your Locker? This is the perfect wine to round it out. While it lasts, of course!

Very Good - Wine Enthusiast
