Ty Caton 2016 Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Mission Codename The Caton Connection

Today’s wine is a lively, refreshing, aromatic treat that is perfect for summertime sipping - or fine dining.

Ty Caton has been a Wine Spies featured winery since 2008. In that time, we’ve featured dozens of Ty’s wines. Today, we have the pleasure to showcase his fragrant and crisply delicious Ty Caton Vineyards 2016 Sonoma Valley Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was the hit of our recent tasting panel, and we’re certain that you’ll love it, too.

This Sauvignon Blanc has an iridescent straw hue with a peridot tinge. Here you’ll find a clean, fresh nose with alluring notes of lilac and peach. The fresh scent of Ulster fragrance mingles with subtle tropical fruit of mango and pineapple. The palate is gorgeous with tropical fruit and stone fruit, instead of your typical grass and citrus. Wonderful flavors of peach, mango, lychee, and guava abound with nice limestone minerality backing. Usually, this kind of fruit requires bright, sometimes sharp, acidity to drive it. This wine has a beautiful softness, with bold edges that have been rounded out until silky smooth. It would be particularly nice with the traditional coconut milk and lemongrass Thai soup, tom kha.

At today’s price, you may want to stock up on enough to last you the Summer!

Here’s what the wine press has to say:

Sonoma Magazine - ”Kenwood winemaker Ty Caton is known for his big, bold Bordeaux blends. This is his first time making a sauvignon blanc and he knocked it out of the park. This estate wine is super refreshing and bright. It will open your eyes wide with a nose of Kefir lime and honeydew, and tickle your palate with white stone fruit and great acid. Only 282 cases. Get it.”
