First time ever as First Sucker! It pays to be working on grades! Plus, I just LOVE Jana Cathedral. It is such an elegant wine. Just had to get some more.

Looks like excellent stuff. ALL of Jana wines on CT get great marks from a quick search

Richard's 93-point CT review is good enough for me. I'll take a pair.

Did anyone else get the cryptic word thing when posting?

Anyways, pulling the trigger on this after procrastinating on Kunde.

Boulder/Denver people care to share this?

A captcha? I didn't have one, maybe its just every x posts gets captcha'd

Also, anyone in NE Ohio/Cleveland want to split this offer? Hard to pull the trigger for 2 when I don't have storage for 1!

Alright, WD, you got me! This is great stuff, and at the woot price it's a great buy. Maybe we'll get two sellouts in a row!

Cool bottle yes...crappy for tight spaces in the wine fridge, definitely! I have 2 from when these were up on Invino. I am cellaring those for a while, may buy 2 as a drink now situation.

French oak does not make a French wine.At this price and 90 point rating I will pass for a real French wine at half the price.

I have the same question. Mainly, a quick online search says that each varietal in a Meritage cannot comprise more than 90% of the wine.

How does this work with 92% being cab?

Edit: Misread it, it's meritage STYLE. Way to go, eyes!

In for a couple 2 packs, seems like a great deal and I've loved every Scott Harvey wine I've ever had with one exception....the InZinerator which I can't even give away but that will teach me to order without reading the RS percentage, I just saw Scott Harvey and Zin and jumped in on that one.

Hmm, may have to buy this one, I've never been steered wrong by a drunk monkey in a bow tie.

EDIT: Also, found this review, might help some with deciding:

http://corkd.com/wine/view/115772-2005-jana-cathedral

AND that American Winery listing lists the cabernet at 76%, not 92%. That's kind of a big difference...

I've been hoarding my other bottles. This is an auto-buy. Smooth, balanced, supple tannins, NOT fruit forward ... a complex beauty from start to wonderfully long finish. I'm in for 3 but I'll open a bottle & post a vol-rat report tonight after work.

EDIT: And as noted by a previous poster, the bottles are beautiful and the "labels" are printed directly on the bottle

Well that is an easy decision. In for 3 on this incredible buy. The only other time I have seen Cathedral at this much of a discount was last years Black Friday where Scott had it on a 50% sale. As for the wine, it is absolutely amazing. You can drink it now or hold it for the next 5-10 years. If your on the fence or even on the other side make the decision to jump and snatch as much of this up that you can. Thanks WD and Scott for the great buy.

It's just the use of the word "Meritage" which is a term created for the purpose of marketing Bordeaux and other blends. Perhaps someone else could tell the story and the wonderful prize which went to the inventor of the term.

Yeah, none of SH's wines ship to Louisiana. I usually pick up a bottle or two in Houston when I travel for business. Spec's carries quite a few SH wines.

Looks like a great wine, but no love for North Carolina on this one? What's up with that? I've got Harvey wines in my cellar purchased from woot...

Any chance to get Jana to sign the bottles on a sell out? I should have got her to sign one the last time we tasted with her and Scott but I did not have a bottle of Cathedral with me.

I suspect it comes down to the fact that in most of his wines, Mr. Harvey goes for a more old-world European style instead of the new-world/international/Parkerized style. And when it comes to Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon, when you say "Napa Cab" everyone goes immediately towards expecting the new world style. So selling this as Napa Cab would mean that people would buy it and be disappointed that it didn't taste like what they thought they were buying, while people who like the usual old-world Scott Harvey style would in turn avoid it thinking it wasn't what they wanted Scott Harvey to be.

This way it not only doesn't taste like standard issue Napa Cab, it doesn't look like it either.

I've gotta say, I absolutely LOVE the InZinerator. I guess it's just based on personal taste.

I think Scott must have hired the comedian to make a celebrity wine. Maybe that's why the blend is off for a Meritage...Or maybe the Woot writers were watching late night reruns of The Steve Harvey Show when they were finishing this copy.

I wish I could chime in, but with a magnum the opportunities for me to pop it open are a little harder to come by.

In on this one - definitely a wine, inside and out, that I will gladly carry in to my favorite bistro and show off!

Plus the fact that it says Meritage Style, not Meritage. If the posted numbers are correct it cannot be a "Meritage" per se, but it's like sparklers that say they are in the "méthode champenoise". It gives you an indication of what profile the winemaker was going for.

Kudos to the Harveys!

"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy." Benjamin Franklin

Hi Everyone,
Great to be back. This vintage I could label as a Cab, being 92%. Other vintages may only be 73% and I would not be able to label them as Cab. By giving the wine a proprietary name like Cathedral it leaves my options open in future vintages to not have to have 75% Cabernet. This way I can make the best blend possible.
