Longstanding operatives know Ty Caton delivers BIG on his wines. Huge value, monstrous flavor, and terrific aging potential. Over 10+ years we’ve featured dozens of Ty Caton wines, and nearly every release goes straight to the “greatest hits” album. Today we’re rolling out a TRIPLE THREAT of Cabernets that will certainly TOP the charts - each one under $30 and over 50% off!!

Ty makes some dead-serious Cabs from his storied estate hillside vineyard high atop the Mayacamas range in the Moon Mountain District. His Cabernet Collection is extremely focused and small, with just 2-8 barrels total production for each one. He focuses on specific blocks within his vineyards - these are essentially vineyard designates within vineyard designates, designed to showcase the unique character of each microclimate, clone, and its distinctive terroir. We’re quite sure if these came from the Napa side of the mountain, the prices would be 2-3x as high!

What shocks us further is how unique each of these Cabs actually is, and the Barracks happens to be the most balanced of the pack with a graceful elegance enhancing the richness to new depths of complexity. A mineral backbone accentuates the acidity and provides a lift that focuses on floral elements and redder berries than the Arroyo and the Terraces. The finish is sublime with hints of savory peeking through, reminiscent of a riper Right Bank Bordeaux. All 3 of these share dark chocolate too, a touch of menthol, and cedar, mixed with damp earth. Chalky, fine-grained tannins make their presence known, suggesting it could rest for years to come. Give it a bit of air after opening before you dive in.

Even at full retail price, these wines represent excellent value - but you know Ty hooks us up with an excellent discount (52% off to be exact). Back up the truck and load up!! You’ll be happy you did.
