Email from St. Supery, the first (or one of the first) Wine Woot wineries:


"We’re offering our 2003 Merlot for $150 a case, and that includes shipping. We normally sell this gem for $27 a bottle out of the tasting room. It’s a Cabernet-drinker’s Merlot that just received 88pts. from Wine Enthusiast. It’s big, it’s rich and it’s got a cashmere texture that keeps you coming back for more.

Go to the St. Supéry shop and use discount code MERLOT150 when you check out. Like most good things, it won’t last. This offer expires Monday October 5, 2009 or while supplies last."

Interesting. Looks like a new venue for them to move excess inventory. Like the idea, but the NJ to SoCal ground shipping is really risky except in winter. If you look at temperatures in Phoenix and Vegas, there are only 2 or 3 months where they're below 70 on average.

Cabernet Franc: it's not just for blending! It's also for blogging.

Does anyone happen to know what the difference is (if any) between "2005 Racchus Field Blend Red" that's on the TC Wine page now and the "2005 Caton Vineyard Field Blend Red" that was in the 12-08 Woot?

you can, but you pay 9% sales tax... which, on a case of TyTanium is even more than shipping!

There was a Facebook conversation on Ty's page that would lead me to believe the Racchus is essentially the same thing. Or "close".

Dude... wait, what?

That's pretty typical now, and it hurts.

If I knew that Ty was not going to back on woot, I would be on this. Shipping is under $5/bottle so the discount is well above cost of shipping. Even if you assume that we can get a 25% discount from Ty Caton most times, this still covers shipping on all but his cheapest wines.

Can you tell I am trying to rationalize a purchase?

Talk about hurt: I just got the wine club shipment, consisting of 2 Malbecs at the standard club discount price, plus shipping, and here they are on sale at 50% off.

Maybe you can convince Ty to give you credit for the difference on a future purchase.

His is one of the couple clubs I would almost consider joining if not for the shipping. I love his wines, but not for shipping costs being that high.

We met with Ty back in August when we were out in Sonoma and he said that he wouldn't be making any Caton Vineyard Field Blend ever again ever in the future amen never ever. We tasted the Racchus and it was solid, but even at the wooter price he gave us on all his vino my wife and I didn't feel like it stacked up to favorably enough to the old Field Blend. We bought 2 of pretty much everything else he makes though!

It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend; one's present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.

Indeed. He said he couldn't justify leaching juice from his varietal wines, especially given the small amount of Petite Sirah he grows, which he really likes to bottle by itself.

I am considering buying a mixed half case...I have heard great things about the Field Blend, but can anyone comment on their other varietals? I was considering the Merlot, Malbec and Syrah...any feedback? Will these wines still provide great QPR after 50% off plus $35 shipping to CT?

I have tasted all three of these wines, and I can say I liked them enough to buy. Had Ty sign the Merlot and Malbec last year. And at half price, I think the QPR will be good, incl. shipping to the Nutmeg state.

And watch for the next CT tasting. What part of the state are you in?

Well, I work in Stratford but I actually moved to Boston recently and work from home. I have a friend Ansonia that I ship my wine to. I do come down to CT most weeks so I could totally go to a tasting.

uh oh - one of our friends just bought a case of the field blend because she liked the previous one so much. Hope she's not in for a terrible surprise.

I believe the 2003s are Napa Valley fruit. Sad to see Ty go somewhere other that woot; maybe it's the distributor wholesaling product to make way for the 2007 vintage. Regardless, that's a helluva deal if you go in for 4.

FWIW, I always ignore Newman's scores. I haven't seen anything rated less than 91 points by him and it seems he's consistently 3-4 points high of the average rating. Me thinks he rates wine for the sole purpose of selling wine to the good people in the State of PA.

Yeah, but it's Ty Caton...and I love all his wines regardless. I'm about to pick up a 4-pack myself. Suppose I'll share with any NYers who don't get a chance to pick this up before it sells out or goes away. Almost considering grabbing 6, but suppose I should hold back at least slightly.
