Don't know if anyone else cares, but I found it interesting that the picture of the wine bottles reflects a blue, cloudy sky. That kind of balanced lighting on glass is hard to achieve with natural lighting and specular reflections, and if the photographer ever gets on the forum I'd like to find out why he/she chose to create a specular reflection rather than the traditional softlight.

According to my politicians, they do not allow out of state liquor sales because they don't want to take the chance that they will lose even a penny in tax money. At least that is what the letter I got said. But he put it a little different.

What he said was... that he is a supporter of free trade and would love to have interstate liquor sales. And as soon as the state can figure out a way to collect the taxes on it, they will vote in favor of it.

I was just surprised to see my state listed, hoped beyone hope that things had changed and was gonna jump on it. My state used to be there, ages ago but not recently.

Look all the way down on the main Wine.Woot page. You will see links to ShipCompliantBlog.com, which keeps up with ever-changing laws, as well as one to FreeTheGrapes.com, which enables you to contact your state legislature.

Helpful information about why your state may not allow a Woot wine to ship to you. Lots of wooters have wootleggers in a neighboring state to receive the wine for them.

There are plenty of ways to get under $20 bottles of wine for a good price online, and one way is by holding to strict price discipline while participating on wine.woot. I have had several offers that have served to broaden my horizons, while I have not yet spent over $20 a bottle. Other places, names withheld to avoid the plug, have quite reasonable offers on highly rated wines for well under $20, including shipping. In addition, it is rather impossible to find truly good wine for under $20 around here, meaning that looking online is a very good option.

Not too many to count, but dang. This place has a way of building a cellar for you.

I find the photography at all the woot sites quite interesting. Perhaps this fellow should post sometime. Or maybe he/she does and we just don't know. Anyway, they keep it interesting. On woot.com the TV's always have a unique movie featured (maybe photoshopped?, but i don't think so). Oh, and I do enjoy those little additions of army/lego men in certain pictures.

Some time ago on some thread on some woot forum (can't remember if it was juvie woot or wine.woot) there was some insight to the photography of the bottles. I do believe most of the shots are done outside in the alley at the StLouis office? I'm sure someone more motivated than myself will be able to find the blog/thread on this topic.

This wine opens with vibrant aromatics of fresh red berries. This theme follows through to the palate, where I find bright berry flavors. This is a lush fruit-driven wine. Full-bodied, rich and seamless in texture from start to finish, it should accompany a wide range of foods and can be enjoyed before, during, and after a meal.

I too remember that thread. You are correct, the photos are taken in St. Louis, MO outside the office. Reflections will change in the bottles as they choose the location for hte photos based on available light at the time. I'm too lazy to look up that thread also....

Most of the wine shots are (or used to be, anyway, not sure now) done outside of the St. Louis woot! office. The procedure was to throw them on a saw horse covered with white paper and look for the best outdoor lighting. The position tended to rotate with the seasons. Been awhile since I've been there, so the procedure may be significantly different these days.

Hello All, sorry it took me so long to get on board - a little technical difficulty on my end this morning (no, not a Presidential hangover!). Thanks to those who got the stats for the wine posted from our website. A quick intro on us. My dad, Jay, started our vineyards in 1969 and the winery in 1981. My two brothers, Kevin and Stephen, and myself (Chris) run the winery now. I'm the winemaker and started working in the cellar straight out of high school (2008 will be my 19th harvest for the family). I'll try to keep up with questions/comments about this wine and our winery the best I can ...

To jesterg86 : We have a very good friend of the family (who is also a wine nut) that is a professional photographer. His name is Mark Burns. He's done photography for some NFL teams in the past. He's been very kind to come out to the winery from time to time and snap shots for us in the field, the cellar, family pics. I'm glad you appreciate his photography and I'll be sure to pass along the comments ...

I'm in for 3.

I've gotten some tasty merlots, a super cabernet franc (Iron Horse) and red blends that included these grapes from wine w00t. I hope the Presidential Red is in the same league as those wines, but anything related to Monticello or TJ is big here in Charlottesville. I know lots of people here who would love a bottle/label regardless of the quality of this wine. (Unfortunately the best VA reds <the most humble CA reds).

Hey everyone,

I actually drank this very wine at a dinner party about three months ago. In fact, I enjoyed it so much my friend gave me another bottle for graduation.

What I remember of the tasting is as follows:

The wine opens with very big mouth-filling fruit flavors of dark berry fruits (cherry, blackberry) which seem to be kissed by a nice mocha character (backed by a slight smoky/earthy essence). The wine has nice depth, and a very smooth texture (thanks to the Merlot), but somehow manages to obtain a fairly weighty mouthfeel - which I very much enjoyed. Overall a VERY enjoyable wine.

For a NAPA valley Cab it's about on-par for the price point, but my friend assures me he bought it for less (he's kind of cheap when it comes to CA wine) so I'm not sure I'm in for one.

Did your friend buy it for less than retail or less than this price? If so, what year? Did he perhaps find a close out. As I mentioned in another thread, I've been 'studying' this month's Beverage Media and many of the deals we see on woot are closing in on the price wine stores pay.

Don't sell yourself short man, I for one completely disagree, one of my favorite bottles of wine I've ever had was a interesting blend of Touriga, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Norton, I think...from Keswick Vineyards..they called it Trevillian. Also Baboursville (sp?) had a couple that knocked my socks right off...a barbera I remember, and another odd blend...Octagon. CA is great and all, but I loves me some off state juice.

All of our wines are made from estate-grown grapes, which means that we control every aspect of the winemaking process from the time the rootstock goes into the ground until the bottled wine is shipped from our casegoods warehouse.

This particular wine is made from grapes grown on our Knollwood Vineyard property which is across the street from our winery in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley (southern end of the valley). The Merlot is clone 181, the Cabernet Franc is clone 312, and the Syrah is clone 470.

We've been having fun with Cabernet Franc and Merlot based blends since the 1999 vintage when we released our first "CORLEY" Proprietary Red Wine. The Presidential Red is a continuation of that desire to keep playing with blends from different blocks in the vineyard and with different clones, and gives us an outlet for a high quality blended red wine at lower price point than our "CORLEY" offering.

I don't have my stats in front of me, but the alcohol is about 14.6%, the TA about 0.50, and the pH about 3.80. I generally keep each varietal separate during fermentation to evaluate the lots independently. After we complete malo-lactic fermentation in barrel, I start playing around with potential blends. I'll usually put blends together in stages. For instance, for our "big red blends" (Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc, Red Wine) I'll do a primary blend after about 12 months in barrel, secondary blend after about 18 months in barrel, and final blending prior to bottling. I like to do the blending in stages because I can see how components are interacting, and also how individual lots are developing prior to using them in the blend.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks for such a fantastically informative post. Often winemakers answer only a few of our geeky questions in the first try, but you answered all and more fully than most. It's interesting about the multiple blending times you use (I haven't heard anything this specific about blending from a winemaker on here yet), and I would love to be there at each blending time, taste the wine, and hear your thoughts.
