This is a very enjoyable wine. I opened it early in the morning on Saturday and tasted it bit by bit over the next twelve hours. It really changed from start to finish. Above all, with the varying flavors, it is smooth throughout.

Speaking of spelling, I was looking at the March email from C.G. Di Arie, advertising a special on PS, and noticed

March Value Wine Of The Month

Don't Miss Our
VALUE WINE OF THE MONTH
2008 Petite Sirah, Estate Grown

A $180 Value for only $120

at $7 flat rate shipping, it's a spectacular deal

(Emphasis added.)

I think the misspelled one is just a placeholder for the photo -- my browser blocked the image, and when I allowed images the "pitite" was no more. But I'm not posting for the spelling, I'm posting in case anyone's interested in the deal. I saw some talk about the PS on the Pub this weekend.

For any Jelly Jar wine fans out there, I just got a postcard in the mail noting the release of their 2010 Old Vine Zinfandel and 2011 Rose. The postcard notes a 20% (sounds like it is good on anything, not just the new release) with the code winewoot20.

EDIT: It looks like those are the only two wines available on their website.

Pulled the trigger on this. CT scores looked solid and the 375's make a nice option for a couple to have a glass each. Summer is coming.

If anybody in the bay area wants some just let me know.

Thank you for the offer. Got an email back from JJB and was able to get sale pricing. Picked up a couple of bottles.

Pretty excited, I saw this at a store in NYC yesterday night at $52/bottle. So this is a supersonic deal IMHO, even with shipping.

This is rather frustrating:

Dear LetsPour Member,
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a loyal supporter of LetsPour.
To make room for new and exciting promotions that better reward our loyal members, we are discontinuing the LetsPour credit program effective midnight of Sunday, March 18th, 2012. Please be sure to use up your credits by purchasing some great wines. Any leftover credits after this date will be forfeited.
Your personal credit as of today is $XX.XX.
This change does not affect any other coupons or Spin-the-Bottle rewards you have been issued by LetsPour.
Questions? Feel free to email us at support@letspour.com.
Cheers!



If you've got credit, use it up. And this will conclude my purchases from Let's Pour, unless the new "exciting programs" are anything worthwhile.

I've never found their pricing to be competitive at all - even with the initial credit for signing up, better pricing is readily available - I stopped even checking their website.

I saw that email this morning and laughed.
The selection is generally pretty weak. The non-discount prices aren't a good deal, the social media aspect is Dot's Poetry Corner, and the stupid deal wheel is rigged.

They've had blowout prices on some great bottles from the Mosel, but I haven't found much value anywhere else (and those rieslings are few and far between). This will be an easy account to cancel.

. This typically is a $25 bottle. looks like the $98 price is a mistake. I find that invino usually price at or slightly lower than ct avg, never significantly lower. they have interesting offers sometimes, but price is always a deal breaker for me.

Picked up 4 bottles of "Lance and Windwill" 2006 PS last night. Popped (well, unscrewed) one immediately. Very smoky from what I think is toasted oak, nice flavour profile but it didn't last a ton of time in the bottle. Perhaps it would come back to life with more air, but it didn't last long enough to give it a shot. If this was full retail I'd laugh, but for $15 it's a solid bottle of well-made PS even if it's not the most complex or interesting one out there.

I opened one of the bottles I got and it matured nicely over the course of 4 days of pour, screw cap, and refrigerate. day 2 or 3 was the best. I plan to put my other 3 bottles away for some years.

Lot18 has 2008 Uvaggio Barbera for $85/6 bottles + FS. Almost exactly the same as the woot price was for the 2007. If you liked it and want more, seems like a good deal to me.

This vintage scored 90 WE if you care about such things.

It did seem as if it might deepen with age, but less purple than I expected in fruit! What was better about it on the second days? Our bottles drunk so far didn't last more than the 1-3 hour window.

Just made my last purchase from them. The CdR for $16 is $2 more than WS can find it for, but as always shipping is a factor. For $48 shipped for three bottles, I can survive.

Now, time to unsubscribe from their emails.
