2021 Estate Four Rows Select Cabernet Sauvignon

February & March Wine Club Release

Derived from grapes grown in the last rows atop our Upper Bench Vineyard, this Cabernet always tends to be an explosion of ripe, opulent fruit, and the 2021 vintage is no exception. Bold dark cherry and a hint of tea, balanced with a sweet-earth finish, this wine delivers a cab lovers wish list of flavors.

2021 Estate Petite Sirah

February Wine Club Release

Remember the first time you ever smelled blackberry cobbler? Here you go! Dark succulent fruit, warming baking spices and a grace note of oak on the nose, this Petite Sirah shows off – in the best possible way. A favorite in my house with either dark chocolate or prime rib….or both!

2021 Estate Big Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

March Wine Club Release

One of the larger parcels in the Caton Vineyard, Big Hill offers a variety of soils and terrain. This comes from the back side that is loaded with rock, gravel and incredible drainage, plus ample afternoon sun. It creates a bold Cabernet that has a richness and flinty tone that mark it for a great cellar selection – age it for 5+ years.

2021 Estate Upper Bench Cabernet Sauvignon

March Wine Club Release

Out of all of Ty’s Cabernet Collection this is the one that delivers the “bang for your buck” when it comes to richness, beefy tannin and a Cabernet experience that feels like the best of Napa. The fruit is graced with coffee and mineral notes, all balanced together in a powerhouse that is a true showcase of the vintage.

Featured wines vary based on club tier.*
