Happy Super Spy Sunday!

For today’s elite-level offering, you’ll enjoy 40% off on Ty Caton Vineyards’ 2012 Tytanium Sonoma Valley Red Wine, the bold, Napa-busting flagship red blend from our old pal, Ty Caton - whose wines we’ve been showcasing for these past eight years. We love Ty’s wines. Today’s is his very best.

Today’s wine is truly Ty’s flagship offering. This wine is a powerhouse of fruit, earth and spice. It is a bold, built-to-age, built-to-impress wine that had my whole tasting panel very vocally singing its praises when we evaluated it for you recently. All agreed that this was Ty’s finest expression - his best vintage - of his flagship blend.

This wine is incredibly aromatic, with rich, lush scents that leap from the glass. Bold blackberry jam, black cherry, sweet spices, stewed plum, cassis, dusty bramble, sweet pipe tobacco, cedar and cracked peppercorn.

Massive and bold, this young wine is great now - and it will continue to evolve and even improve for the next decade or more. Out of the gate, bold black cherry, plum, blackberry and cassis. As the wine settles onto the palate, additional flavors of mocha, tobacco leaf, dried fall leaves, oak, European black licorice, India black tea, molasses and mixed spice.

As an added special, you’ll enjoy included ground shipping on 4 or more bottles. No coupon required.

Finish:

Exceptionally long, with firm tannins and a rapidly spreading dryness that reaches the far corners of your palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this bold wine with something fatty and rich, like a juicy prime rib.
