And you don't get to know what WD sent. So ha Or rather, I'm not sure we're allowed to share... muhahaha...



All the other W.W Tastings shared what was sent. First NY was an unknown woot cellars red. 2nd NY was t-shirts. The Chicago one I went to were fruit spreads or something lie that.
So yes, you can share.

I have to say, the party was a blast. Lots of great wine, and cheron98 put on a fantastic spread. There was more food than we could eat and it was all delicious.

My pick for best wine of the day was the hot ice wine.

When the pics go up, I'm the red-head with glasses ;)

I liked the Belgian chocolate ice wine. ^

It was a fantastic tasting and we're getting another wine.wooter out of this. I have a feeling he's going to choose the name viciousduck. We'll see.

Wines that were sampled, with general "like it, love it, hate it" comments... as obviously, I'm unsure what everyone thought in specifics Although some of you left your notepads behind...

REDS
2004 Wellington Victory Reserve - Liked it, leaning towards loved it. General thoughts were that it felt unfinished, that perhaps it could spend a little more time in the bottle before we break open another. Drinking window is 2007-2016, so there's the probability this will only get better with age, but was pretty darned good right now.

2004 Reininger Helix Pomatia - Loved it. Felt it was better than the Victory, certainly more of this was drank than the Victory. I personally did not get around to having some, but everyone else seemed to really enjoy it.

2006 Two Hands Angel's Share Shiraz - Liked it, the remainder went home with the bringer. Again, no comment from me, I tried a bit but can't remember... didn't write anything down being too busy hosting. Didn't hear much by way of comments from others on it.

2005 Finca Luzón Jumilla Altos de Luzón - Liked it. No one can pronounce the name. There's still some left in my fridge, which I will probably have with dinner tonight when I get around to it. Again, didn't get to try this one personally, but the general floating comments were that it was yummy.

WHITES
N.V. Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling Sweet Harvest - Loved it. Smooth, delicious, easy to drink. Loved. Not too many tried it, but those who did all went "Wow, that's really good"

2004 Silver Spur Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyards - I'm not sure what the feeling was on this one. I don't care so much for chards myself, but there's quite a bit left in the bottle, if that's any indicator to you.

N.V. Chaucer's Raspberry Mead - Liked it, but leaning towards dislike. The smell of this was just terrible. Way too strong - possibly due to drinking window being closed. However, it tasted pretty good - very honey with the taste of raspberry, as expected in a raspberry mead. General consensus was "do not smell this, just drink it".

2006 Mandolina Pinot Grigio - Loved it. I did not taste this myself, however all those at the party who did commented that it was quite good - those who don't typically like pinot grigio loved this one and made note to find some for themselves.

N.V. SakeOne Asian Pear - Didn't like it. here was almost no scent to the sake. The first sip was a little potent and bitter, but afterwards became incredibly smooth - like water. But, it also tasted mostly like water, too, with a hint of pear juice. It didn't present the kick I was expecting from a sake.

SPARKLING
N.V. Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut - Loved it. Infused this champagne into chocolate-dipped strawberries (and had some for myself). Enhanced the flavor of the strawberries tremendously. The smell of this bubbly was sweet, and the flavor was mild and much smoother for a white than I anticipated. Easy to drink. Apparently makes good pineapple mimosas...

N.V. Mumm Napa Cuvée M - Loved it. Mumm is Yumm... General consensus was that this was the superior of the champagnes, although both were delicious.

ICEWINE
2003 Crown Bench Estates Winery Ambrosia Chocolate Ice - Loved it. This was a hit among the ladies. This was created by layering the fermenting wine with Belgian chocolate, which came through very much in the flavor. The aroma of chocolate floods your senses as you breathe in the vapors of this delicious dessert ice wine. As you sip, the flavors of peaches and chocolate cross the palate, sweet and irresistible. A cordial glass seems too small for this flavorful, powerful wine, and yet, with its body and fullness, the cordial may be all you need. This wine's got legs to stand on, coating the glass with a beautiful golden shine. The one word to sum up this one: Flawless!

2003 Crown Bench Estates Winery Hot Ice - Loved it. This was a hit among the men. This one was created by infusing hot peppers into the wine. Golden in color with a slightly reddish hue, the aroma this gives off is deceptive of the taste that is to come. The smell is sweet, and just barely gives off a spice note. As the wine crosses your palate, the sweetness remains, and the flavor sticks true to the scent. However, after a moment, the spice kicks in - not harshly. A pleasant, flavorful spice that ignites the senses. The sommelier comments that he has seen a varying range of reactions to this wine - some taking just a sip and their faces turn red, while others are not affected at all. Not a wine for the faint of heart!

2004 Sawmill Creek Vidal Icewine Bin 88 - Liked it. This was a pretty standard ice wine, the kind you'll find pretty much at any winery that produces ice wines. Your base, if you will. All your base are belong to me.

I think that's all of them. Pictures still to come...

Too much other wine open, had to taste it all.

The party was great, I look forward to the next one and maybe I'll have a husband who will actually stay more than five minutes if it happens near Labor Day (although I know we have a wedding that weekend...ugh).

Major props and thanks to cheron98 for hosting/cooking/whatevering. It was a blast.

Glad you liked it. As the representative from the old folks home, I'll add my thanks to cheron98 for a shindig well thrown. Great wine, food, conversation and the ubiquitous dancing crab-like robot. Just sorry I couldn't stay longer.

Now too many to list, as I'm too lazy to figure out how to scroll it.

HAK, this is why you are single. You don't call someone a hot little number, unless you're Alternate Name for Richard Tracy. (frakking woot filters)

Edit: Spryte is too young to know who Alternate Name for Richard Tracy is. So HAK, you don't call someone a hot little number unless you're the Fonz. No wait, uh, Scott Baio? Damnit no, um..........Quagmire, yes you don't call someone a hot little number unless you're Quagmire.

Actually it wasn't wine. He'd warned me on that when the package shipped, presumably so I knew I didn't have to be there to sign for it (even though I ended up being home when it arrived anyway).

So here's what we got:

3-pack of dipping oils, 3-pack of ... spreads? tapenades... I wasn't planning on getting bread, and then this arrived, so out I went for crusty yummy bread.

I can't remember off-hand what exactly each of the oils were... let's see, there was a garlic parmesan dipping oil, ... i want to say a roasted red pepper dipping oil?... and a third one. I'll get you all the details later tonight when I get home to look at them again.

The spreads... Green olive tapenade, Caponata, and Red Pepper tapenade.

The oils were all equally delicious, although I think peoples' favorite was the garlic parmesan.

The green olive tapenade was too salty, although the general feeling was that it would work extremely well over pasta.

The red pepper tapenade was quite tasty. A touch of spice to it, but really good.

The favorite by far was the caponata, which we decided would work not just on bread, but as a pizza sauce or a pasta sauce - so quite versatile.

General impression was that if/when this goes up for sale either on wine.woot or as a side deal, we'd all buy it. A lot.

So once again, thanks WD for sending it The fact that it said "wannabe" on it was what made us all go "Hm, are we allowed to share..."

I have to disagree with this. As a saké drinker, I liked it a lot. It was much more mild than most saké you'll find around these parts, since most saké is quite hot. I was surprised not to get any hotness whatsoever.

If you don't like spicy food don't bother. I didn't like it at all (but I have the timidest palette ever).

My fave was the Sundried tomatoes dippinng oil. There was a garlic or something and parm, a basil or some other spice like that, and the sundried tomato.

Eh, I prefer smooth saké. And since I'm moving to Japan I might as well be spoiled about it. Maybe if you guys are lucky I'll be able to afford sending a bottle of something Japanese your way for end of summer. Maybe. ^_^

The server errors are largely due to the shirt.woot derby. Yesterday the number of entries hopped up over 1000, while the typical derby has 200-400. It's killing the servers on all the sites. Don't even bother trying to load the derby page if you're not prepared to load for five minutes.

Also, vote for my designs in my sig! The one on the left is in the fog and could use some extra votes to stay there and maybe get printed (and that extra $1000 would help my move to Japan...and maybe the travel of a bottle of saké.)

Top 4 (or 6?) shirts. You're not allowed to know the actual # of votes for these, because the top 3 shirts end up getting printed, and woot doesn't want people to know what they're going to be before they're actually up for sale. Makes it more "fun" that way. So they say.

It's the top 4 shirts (like cheron said). They created the fog because people started trying to create ties so woot would offer two-fers (it's happened 3x in the history of shirt.woot, twice in one derby). Now they post the contenders and 4th place gets to go down in near-miss history, which is where I think my shirt design is right now.

It was a fantastic day. It started pouring just after I finished the grilling, but that only lasted a few minutes. Another downpour came along at some point as well, but otherwise, the weather cooperated. We all fit inside pretty well anyway... better than I thought we would

Holy wow we got it wrong...
Ok, so we got:

Sun-dried tomato dipping oil
Basil Parmesan dipping oil
Roasted Garlic & Rosemary dipping oil

The spreads were right.

For dinner tonight, I reheated the lamb chops with the caponata on it, and stir-fried some veggies using the sun-dried tomato dipping oil. QUITE delicious.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"
