A new Ty wine on Woot that I can't get AND it's snowing again. Living in Minnesota is kind of difficult today...

What is the reason/impetus/inspiration for this blend? At the price point it is certainly not a top end blend (Wellington Victory). Is it a bottom end blend? (Wellington Duke).

Additionally, what is the oak treatment on this? Barrels/Staves/chips? %new?

Ok, Woot. You have like 22 hours to fix whatever problem there is with Missouri.

My thoughts exactly :-( It was forecasted that we're supposed to get 8-10" here in the Twin Cities metro.

As far as this offer goes, the blend sounds enticing (pun intended) and now I'm left wondering if Ty would match this offer direct from the winery for those of us that can't order from Woot.

Georgia allows direct ship. What's the issue? And what changed? Had 20+ wine.woot shipments delivered here and suddenly his year no more?

I have yet to try a Ty Caton wine. I do have some baby Cabs that will be in storage for a number of years before they are considered for consumption, but am eager to try his wine sooner to see if it lives up to all the hullabaloo. So I'm hoping this enTycement might be ready for drinking sooner, which might enTyce me to pull the trigger. What is the recommended drinking window for this blend?

I guess Ty can no longer ship to TN? That sucks, I was going to pick this one up.

How is this different than the Ty's Red?

Is this supposed to be "Baby Tytanium"?

Is it broke or just fractured?

aces219


quality posts: 5 Private Messages aces219

I don't think this is baby TyTanium. First of all, it is a 2012 so it hasn't had a ton of aging. If you read the description, it talks about approachability and fruit-forward ness. So I'm guessing this is on the fruit bomb scale even for Ty.

Sounds like a drink nearer term crowd pleaser wine. I'm guessing if you like TyTanium that this is not your bag, but who knows. I think it is brilliant from a marketing standpoint...probably will sell a ton in the tasting room to the casual tasting crowd because it is much more approachable near term.

Interestingly, it is 15 pct petite sirah and 7 pct petit verdot. I would not have expected that. 14.8 pct alcohol seems about right. Heavier on the zin...I'm thinking this has a flavor profile like the Wellington Meeks Hilltop Ranch (which is Peter's nod to the tasting room crowd!).

This looks to me like it's taking the place of the raccus red, which I felt was a good value at the woot price of $15 shipped. This is closer to $22 a bottle shipped which makes it an easy pass.

Just a wag, but it seems more in the
'you can drink this now, middle',
perhaps Ty's version of a fruit bomb even.
Hope he drops in to let us know.

$28 each + tax and $17.45 to ship three on his site make this $108 vs. a $65 woot.
I do miss those spreadsheets we used to get.

Agreed on all points. Call it something different, slap on a fancier label, increase price by 50%.

If I'm going to spend $20 on a bottle of Ty wine, I'm going to get a cab or something better which have been commonly offered on other sites for better prices then the lesser wines that have been offered here recently.

I would not describe this wine as a fruit bomb. To me, a fruit bomb describes, for example, those zinfandels out there that exude alcohols of 16%+ and overwhelm you with fruit. After a glass or two, you are bombed. A fruit bomb (to me) also insinuates a lack of balance. EnTycement has none of these qualities.

Woot is currently not shipping to a number of states (regardless of licenses) due to Amazon's interpretation of various direct shipment laws.

Many other wineries have offered to provide the same deal direct from the winery to those who are in states where Woot cannot currently ship, but the winery does have a license. I'm sure such an offer would be much appreciated to those people, if possible on your end.

It's a much higher quality wine than the Racchus Red

Thanks for the feedback. Had a feeling the Amazon mothership had a hand in this. Working hard to wreck a great site. Typical corporate homogenization. Had 20+ purchases before Woot was acquired - only one since.

So Ty ... c'mon man ... can you offer those of us in MN and other effected states the same deal from the winery? Or ... since we'll be visiting in May, can you put 3 aside until we get there?

Sales tax. Ugh.

It's been a while since I've made a purchase here, but Amazon recently started taxing shipments to NC and has done the same here, I see.

Ty, Your wine has never let me down. When I get home, I'm going to order. Ty's wine is an instant buy for me and a new wine to boot! I just hate FedEx lately...giving me heartburn on their tracking info!!! Long story, wrong forum! Hope this doesn't sell out until I get to push the button.
