Ty Caton Vineyards
2010 Ty's Red
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Valley
We are just wild about this delicious, lush, vibrant, structured red blend from one of our favorite producers - and longtime friend, Ty Caton. Very highly recommended, this wine is sure to delight any fan of complex, juicy red blends.
Every time we showcase a wine from Ty, we find so much to love. If you are a fan of delicious red wines with a backbone and elegance, you’ll love today’s wine, too.
Ty’s Red is a perfect, balanced blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 18% Syrah, 2% Petite Sirah. A great solo sipper, we recommend pairing this wine with a hearty meal. Grilled meats, spareribs Teriyaki or a roast beef come to mind as a wonderful choice.
Very dark, deep and opaque, with dark maroon hues that are perfectly even, from core to edge. Tall, skinny, slow-moving tears hold onto the color of the wine as they move very slowly downward.
Balanced and very lush with equal proportion of fruit, earth and spice. Wild blackberry, baked mixed berry pie, brown baking spice, fresh soil, mollasses and European salt licorice.
Dark and concentrated, with flavors of dark mixed berries, black cherry, subtle baking spice, subtle jasmine black tea, dried fall leaves and black pepper.
Dark and long lingering black fruit and spice. After the wine leaves the palate, a plush chewiness emerges at the corners of the mouth, giving the wine a complex overall feel.
