Mission Briefing

Codename:

Ty me a river

Today’s Ty Caton Vineyards 2013 Moon Mountain Petite Sirah is a rich, delicious, flavor-packed wine that hits all the right notes. From the darkly fragrant nose, to the concentrated fruits that coat the palate, this wine was built to impress fans of the varietal.

Exceptionally fragrant, with Blackberry jam, black currant, black cherry, mixed berry pie, sweet spice, black plum, roasted mission fig, dusty bramble, slate mineral, spice box, dark chocolate and flint.

On the palate, this wine is bold and packed with the darkest fruit flavors, including mixed berry compote, spice box, cedar, grilled plum, grilled fig, smoky black cherry, flinty mineral, dusty bramble, cocoa powder and a hint of white pepper.

If you love big wines, this baby will have you doing cartwheels. This is a big, bold, badass wine that strikes a great balance between fruit-driven and earthy, giving the wine really broad appeal.

Enjoy with your heartiest holiday foods!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and inky purple, with translucent maroon edges that seem to run a glowing circle around the glass. After swirling the wine purple tears cling to the glass wall, moving very slowly downward before ultimately disappearing.

Smell:

Blackberry jam, black currant, black cherry, mixed berry pie, sweet spice, black plum, roasted mission fig, dusty bramble, slate mineral, spice box, dark chocolate and flint.

Taste:

Mixed berry compote, spice box, cedar, grilled plum, grilled fig, smoky black cherry, flinty mineral, dusty bramble, cocoa powder and a hint of white pepper.

Finish:

Extra long and loaded with black fruit that fades gently as crushed velvet tannins leave the palate dry and longing for another sip.

Pairing:

Enjoy this well-structured wine with something big and bold, like a garlic and black pepper rubbed steak, a Moroccan beef stew or pork with sour cherries.
