This reminded me to go back and check the Gazzi Syrah from the woot.off and I see Scott dropped a note in there that unfortunately he wasn't involved in that one -

SH, "Sorry I mised getting in on the questions when the wine was up. So, I'll answer the questions now and anyone that wants to go back can see them. 2005 was the first vinatge at gazzi that i had something to do with. So i did not make the 2004. I did open a bottle and tase it and do lab work on it. It has a 3.55 pH, which is what i like in my Syrah. I got Tartrates on the cork as it was opened. The wine has a dark color, creamy texture, black pepper, typical Syrah like blueberry, nutmeg with a rich full mouthfeel, balanced oak and long lingering finish."

Oh well - was worth a shot!

If I didn't already have a case in the cellar, I'd be in for some more. This wine has a great QPR. If drinking anytime soon, I'd suggest opening it the day before.

On a side note, did anyone find out a definitive answer to whether SH was the winemaker for the 2004 Syrah? And Scott, if you're lurking, please, please, please find a way to offer more InZin soon.

edit: I guess the question has been answered. Don't mean to sound like I'm gloating, but I'm glad I didn't buy.

I'm not a fan of cheap pinot, but if this is anything like the last Gazzi pinot woot I bought, it's a winner. The syrah added some depth to the wine - seems like an unlikely combination but I thought it worked. Thought I was safe after the end of the woot-off but no, I'm breaking my SIWBM for this.

Ouch! A bit of salt in the wound, but I'm guessing it'll still be tasty and good value - just wish I hadn't been so foolhardy and gone for 3. Now only in for 2 on this one.

That is, if the NC shipping SNAFU will be corrected once again - I went ahead and placed my order with all the correct details on the address except "California" substituted for North Carolina - hope this works!

Although I went in on the Gazzi Syrah, I'm kind of Gazzi'd out.


On a positive note, I LOVE THE SHIRT WOOT TODAY:

Yeah, whats with the price increase for the same product we bought last year. Does an extra 6 months in the warehouse increase the cost of this woot by $5?

Take a look at the link at the top to the prior Woot offering of the '08 - SH description will help you. I enjoyed the 07 and have a couple of bottles left - so feel pretty good in picking up the 08 here.

Would have preferred to be in for 2 of this vs the "pre-SH" Gazzi Syrah from earlier - but fingers crossed that it will also be a pleasant suprise like the 07 PN was.

From their writeup, 10/7/2011: Note that we got our hands on the final cases of this wine, so please be sure to consider today’s offering carefully.

Apparently they didn't get their hands on the final cases. You can't believe everything you read!

From their write up:
Wine Spies Tasting Profile:

Look – Dark ruby hues, with even coloration, from core to edge. At the very edge, where wine meets glass, a fine ring of bright pink encircles the wine. After swirling, long, skinny tears fall slowly from high up on the glass.

Smell – Sweet cherry candy, strawberry, blueberry and soft violets. As the wine opens, it also reveals cherry cola, soft brown spice, black cherry and a hint of sweet cedar.

Feel – Soft and light-weight at first. Then, the wine hovers across the mid-palate, where it takes on a soft weightiness. Supple tannins add complexity, driving a soft dryness from the center of the tongue, to the edges of the mouth.

Taste – Delicious and flavorful, with Bing cherry, strawberry, blueberry and soft, sweet cedar. These are perfectly balanced against, dried violets, earthy black cherry, black tea leaf and a hint of dark leather.

Finish – Long and sweet, with flavors that evolve and change before they slowly fade. Red fruit gradually gives way to earthy flavors and soft spice. At the tail end, minerals and soft, sweet spice linger on.

This is the same profile that Wine Woot uses. What's up with that?

my notes from 12/13/2011:
No decanting. Very nice aged tannins but the fruit flavors are a bit in the background although pretty close to being well balanced. Subtle cherries. Medium acids. Good on its own without food. Very drinkable after pop and pour.

Edit: also from my notes: drink now, probably will not get better with age

BTW I am in for one.

I adore Scott Harvey, but to be "true to the truth", the label for this thing is f'ing ugly and we all know it. Some bottles are so great you can hardly stand to throw them away... This one? Can hardly stand to look at... but the fact they couldn't be bothered to find a decent graphic designer... How much care could have gone into the wine? Still placing an order . But "Big Kahuna" has a nicer looking label...

I have bought plenty of this and the 2007. Would buy more but my cellar's full for pinot. I definitely recommend at this price, it's worth more, but it's not a super high end pinot or anything, just a solid wine,

Great to be back with the gazzi Pinot. The 2007 and 2008 Gazzi Pinots were bottled the same day. June 3rd, 2010. They are similar in style, having both using the same winemaking treatment. The 2007 being aged a year longer in barrel is not as fruit forward as the 2008. After I bottled the wines I did lab work and evaluations on both;
2007 - 3.53pH, 14ppm free SO2, .048 VA, 15.0% alc. Red fruits, bright cherry, red licroice, French oak, good balance and long finish.
2008 - 3.55pH, 20ppm free SO2, .048 VA,14.8% alc. Riper than the 2007, blackberry jam, Syrah like, red fruits, softer than the 2007, more tannic on the finish.

Scott,

Would you say this is a drink now wine, or does it still have any evolution left in it?

Drew from Wine.woot and I enjoyed a bottle of the Syrah when we were deciding to offer it on Woot or not. We both liked the wine and and drank it all. I don't thing you'll be disappointed. I really like the quality of the Gazzi vineyard.

For all the people complaining about the reds again, know this: in my experience (and humble opinion) Pino Noir is a great crossover wine in that you can pair it with foods that you would probably serve white wine with like fish. I find that as long as there is a reasonable fat content in the food (salmon or mahi, pasta with lots of cheese, and flank steak) Noir is an excellent and elegant choice.

Just bought 3, love this wine. Well at least the 07 from the prior woot. I would have to go back and check my tasting notes for a better review but for now I can say:

This wine did not last long and I had a case. Everyone who tasted it loved it. I scoured the internet even contacting woot looking for more. If you like pinot at all, or even just reds, buy this. If it is anything like the 07 you will not be disappointed and if you are send me a note, will be happy to buy the rest off of you
