ty, Ty

Ty. The first name of our bestie Ty Caton. Also texting shorthand for "Thank you!" which is something we often say when someone gives us a glass of Ty Caton wine.

Ty Caton was one of the very first to partner with an up-and-coming site known as Wine.Woot, and anyone who'll take a stupid chance like that has GOT to know they have a good product. That's why we're always happy to have a Ty Caton wine on our burgundy-colored front page, and why we think you'll be happy when you start to take a drink.

Oh, you want MORE? Well, we could probably tell you that this is a 2010 Ballfield Syrah, from Sonoma Valley. We could also tell you about the blackberry aromas, the hints of boysenberry and mocha in the nose, the mid-palate of berry and pepper spice with a silky finish. But instead of wasting your time with all that nonsense, we'll get right to the point.

The 2010 Ty Caton Ballfield Syrah won a Gold Medal at the 2013 San Francisco Wine Competition, the largest judging of California wines in the world. Which means that this wine is one of the best wines that 2013 has to offer.

See? The guy might have horrible taste in website partners, but he's got amazing taste in wine.

Winery Details

Ty Caton Vineyards

Founded:
1997
Owner:
Ty Caton
Location:
Sonoma, CA
We achieve wines of authenticity by working with nature to showcase the true flavors of the grapes. Ty Caton personally manages the entire winemaking process, from planting the vines, to farming the grapes, to making the wine here in Sonoma Valley. By using exclusively estate grown grapes he is able to have complete control over the process and personally tend to the wine from soil to glass. His acute awareness of the land enables him to make wines that show the great potential of the vineyard site.
 
Ty Caton’s philosophy is that wine is a natural product and should be treated as such. His winemaking uses limited intervention, which allows the wines to speak for themselves and import the true expression of the vineyard. He ferments with wild yeast that naturally occurs in the grapes so that the wines are manipulated as little as possible. As a Sonoma Valley winemaker and grape grower he strives to produce the ‘wow factor’ by creating wines that are bold, highly extracted and beautifully structured. Ty Caton believes that blending is an art form and uses master blending techniques to combine different grape varieties and clones to create wines with many layers of complexity in aroma and flavor. By allowing the grapes to show their true character and enhancing it through blending, Ty Caton is forging a new definition of quality in Sonoma Valley winemaking.
