California: Sonoma County
Today’s Ty Caton Vineyards 2013 Sonoma County enTycement Red Wine is a wine that drinks like a far more expensive bottle. At our special price, this wine earns our coveted *Ultra QPR Alert (Quality to Price Ratio) status.
This balanced wine is packed with flavor, delivering a very enjoyable drinking experience.
Even at full retail, this wine delivers. It is very full and fragrant on the nose and, on the palate, the wine shines brightly with juicy dark fruit and a rich, plush, full mouthfeel. With a price this low, I am recommending this wine as one to load up on. This is a Tuesday night wine that drinks like a far more expensive bottle.
Very fragrant on the nose, with blackberry, blueberry and black cherry intermingled with dark spice, oak, bramble, cocoa and leather.
Juicy and delightful on the palate, with smoky blackberry, black cherry, dark raspberry, blueberry and sweet spices in the lead. As the wine opens, it evolves, revealing plum, mocha, cedar, graphite and a hint of black pepper at the very end.
We are thrilled to offer you this wine with our highest recommendation.
Here’s what the wine press has to say:
3 out of 5 Stars - Spirit of Wine - “In the glass: Muddy dark mahogany, opaque from a quarter inch of the edge.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows husky, brambly blackberry and black currant fruit. From the aroma, seems like this will be bold, perhaps piercing, with some dark charcoal streaks.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact more velvety than anticipated. Tannins and acids are noticeable, but layered in with sweet, ripe black raspberry fruit right from the start. More raspberry lifts into your cheeks as the sip progresses, then the tannins help the finish settle in to a leisurely fade. The expected charcoal is missing entirely on the deeply fruited palate.
In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a plus for its intriguingly balanced layers on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.”
