Save 48% on this super fun to drink wine! It's the rich, dense and flavorful Ty Caton Upper Bench Merlot.
Over the years we've heard many good things about the wines of Ty Caton, which have developed a bit of a cult-like following. We recently had our first chance to try them and needless to say, we discovered just what all the hype is about.
As such we're delighted to bring you our first Ty Caton offer. And we're kicking things off with a bang both in terms of the wine (a full throttle Merlot) and the discount (almost 50% off)!
Today's wine is 100% estate grown Merlot from the Caton Vineyard in the Moon Mountain District of Sonoma Valley, California. The wine spends 15 months in French oak (45% new) and just 635 cases were produced.
The normal SRP is rather hefty at $42 but it's not without good reason. And of course you won't pay anywhere near that price through today's deal.
For the next day you can get 3 bottles of the 2018 Ty Caton Upper Bench Merlot for just $69.99 ($23.33 a bottle). That's a discount of almost $19 a bottle and a total of 48% after the additional savings from our $5 shipping.
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 3-packs you buy. Read on for our full review.
This 3-Pack deal ships to: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TX, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI and WY.

From the winery:
This elegant Merlot greets the nose with rich aromas of ripe cherry and violets, followed by a lush mouth feel with layers of blackberry, currant, and a touch of chocolate. These flavors combine with soft and supple tannins to create a long, silky smooth finish.

Produced and Bottled by Ty Caton Vineyards
The 2018 Ty Caton Upper Bench Merlot begins with a strong, enticing aroma of dark fruit, licorice and cola plus nice touches of spice and a bit of a violet floral note. It's a great start.
Tasting reveals a rich, dense, flavorful Merlot with a soft, round, silky smooth mouthfeel. Loaded with dark fruit and plenty of licorice and spice this is a fun one to drink!
It ends dry and long with lots of dark fruit plus touches of dark chocolate, vanilla and spice. It's really good after a few hours of air and holds up just fine on day 2.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"

"I love this wine I bought from you!!!! Thanks for doing what do do!!!"
"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon. And $5 shipping for four bottles? You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."

"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
