I've heard good things before about them and since it's near impossible to find Zin here in WA wine country, it was an easy choice.

I'm not afraid to admit I'm a novice when it comes to wine. Can someone please elaborate what an "expressive mid-palate" means? Thanks in advance

At 15.8% I think it means the hot burn of alcohol.

15.8 doesn't mean anything in particular.

Not necessarily. Zins very often have higher alcohol % than other varietals.

I thought mid-palate meant the core taste, after the first rush and before the finish. "Expressive" probably means the old vine Zin flavors really come out. ...Can't help myself - In for two.

In the previous offering the owner stated "no heat to this puppy smooth as silk!" I think that says a lot.

I am very happy to see Woodenhead back on Woot! They are one of the best family wineries in the Russian River AVA producing only 4,000 cases annually. This wine is drinking fabulous right now, on the feminine and sassy style of Zinfandel - will not disappoint Zin enthusiasts or even Pinot Noir fans like me.

Glad to see this today. I hoped it would've made an appearance on the recent Woot-Off. This is simply great tasting wine. Surprisingly smooth and full-bodied for a Zin. In for 2.

Any oak treatment on this? Barrels or stainless?

The stats don't scream silky smooth to me, but hey I don't know much. Any production details would be nice.

It did say .715 last time, so it may be correct and just missing the decimal point.

The description says 2 bottles, so no, not a case.

Visited woodenhead a few times and they are at the top of my list in terms of quality zins and pinots. I love all their wines, tasting room service, and awesome views! Thir zins are exactly what i look for in dry creek zins: fruit, fullness, and a chewiness in the end without heat or bite. Nice to see these at a discount.

Edit: this is an RRV zin but my statement stands in terms of dry creek zins, i.e. Has that dry creek structure but without the heat. Besides, these AVAs are neighbors!

Step 1: Make sure you have the checkbox (in settings, under Account) set to receive Newsletters, emails, etc. (Click on My Account at the top).

Step 2: Make sure that emails from Woot.Com do not end up in your SPAM folder (whether on your computer or up in the cloud -- some filter up there).

Step 3: Wait patiently by your computer. Well, you wait until the month when you first joined Woot. You can hover your mouse over your screen name, and it will show when you joined Woot. You should receive an email from Woot before then.

Actually, most coupons that are mentioned around here are received by jumbowoot, which is a program through the deals.woot website. These are basically random coupons which are given out based on varying participation in the deals.woot website, whether it be voting on deals, adding deals, making comments, etc.

Yes, you are correct. Zins typically have a higher alcohol content than let's say Pinot Noir. Our Martinelli Zin is well balanced, smooth, and delicious!

You can find more details on our website. In short: All of our grapes are hand sorted, we don't fine or filter. We employ gravity and never use pumps. Our wines are aged in French oak barrels for at least a year and a half and then bottle aged for your drinking pleasure. Cheers!

This vineyard was planted in 1882. These are truly ancient vines, producing wine that is concentrated, rich, intense and complex; much more so than zins produced from younger vines.
