From the web site: "Ty Caton Vineyards shares a tasting room with neighboring winery Muscardini Cellars. Our tasting room offers the best of wine country – two boutique award-winning wineries and an intimate tasting experience. There is a good chance that you will find Ty Caton or Michael Muscardini behind the bar and can experience first-hand the passion behind the wines. Don’t miss our flagship wine, TyTanium, a proprietary blend designed to express the distinct character of our estate vineyard, as well as our other award winning wines."

Personal comments: Ty Caton shares a tasting room with Muscardini, where they pour from a unified tasting list. If you're lucky, you'll have both Michael Muscardini and Ty pouring wines. My wife and I stopped by on a day in August 2009 and Michael happily set us up with whatever we felt like tasting. Ty Caton's second label Chardonnay, "Bacchus" seemed to us like a good deal at the price, but don't overlook his big red -- "TyTanium". The winery tasting notes say of this wine "It explodes with beautiful fruit flavors of ripe dark cherry and blackberry and has a soft tannic supple long finish with a hint of chocolate. It is the equivalent of an iron fist in a velvet glove." -- Roy Tennant
