Mission Briefing

Codename:

Uptown

From start to finish, this wine is incredible. After showcasing two successive vintages, Ty Caton blows us away, once again, with his ultra-premium Tytanium Red Blend. Today’s 2010 Tytanium is dense and chewy, with intense but balanced flavors through and through.

Our tasting panel (we very carefully vet every wine that we showcase) spent a great deal of time with this complex wine, slowly unpacking the myriad layers of aromas and flavors. The consensus was unanimous: we love this wine!

Ty’s wines have always impressed us, and we are thrilled to have been bringing you these delightful treats for more than six years now. This relatively young wine is drinking beautifully now, and we cannot wait to see how it progresses over the next several years.

Today’s wine is very highly recommended. Especially at today’s fantastic price.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Very dark and intense magenta hues at the core. At the edge, bold ruby hues punctuate the brooding quality of the color.

Smell:

Delightfully rich and sweet with pronounced mixed dark berry fruit of blueberry, blackberry and cassis. These are balanced against sweet spice, sweet tobacco leaf, cedar and braised mission fig.

Taste:

Dense dark berry fruit pie with sweet spice, sweet tobacco, grilled fig, earthy dried fall leaves, dusty bramble and dried thyme.

Finish:

Very structured and rich, with the backbone carrying flavors very deep across the entire palate.

Pairing:

Grilled filet mignon with a simple garlic and butter rub.
