Hell, I am a wine member of about 4 different wineries from Auburn to Grass Valley..I could put a good word in for those places...not quite sure they have the stock to support a wine.woot week.....but, they probably would like to try...



Just by the way, I'd be willing to host at Twisted Oak. If that is too far maybe we can converge on someplace in the greater Placerville area as a central point, and I can bring some things to share. Just let me know!

A little off current topic here, but I just opened the 2004 Ty Caton Merlot to enjoy with dinner. I must say it's the first Ty offering I've sampled from the orig 3 pack and the 3 pack field blend I ordered, and I opened this first as Merlot is my least favorite of the reds oredred. But WOW!! This is the best merlot I've ever tasted. I'm blown away. I can't wait to drink the rest of my order and regret not getting multiples. I'll be in on any future Ty Caton offerings without hesitation.

I know it has been said, but I got my TC Field Blend yesterday in the rain... all was well. Tonight I am enjoying (and I mean REALLY enjoying.... ) the Peltier Station Lodi Petite Sirah. Holy Mother of PEARL. This is like... nectar! DANGER WILL ROBINSON!
I haven't caved on this Twisted Juice yet.... but I am playing a little game with myself. If it starts to bounce before Sunday... I grab it!

All of the TC talk, I wish that had been my first wine.woot. If it pops up again, I am going in for at least one.

Ty is an auto-buy; nevermind how much you have on the rack.... Just wait 'til you hit the Tytanium.

In inverse and not complete order. Rinfrescante. Pepper Bridge. Saxon Brown. Monkey Prize. Vina Robles. Ty Caton Tytanium (always!). Roshambo. Polyphemus. Donati Family. Poizon. Montinore. Kent Rasumussen. Mumm Napa. Boss Monster. Iron Horse. Albino Rhino. White Zeppelin, Buttonwood Farm, 8-Bit, Ty Caton Racchus, Twas!

It's thinking like this that turned the recent Ty offering (especially the first of that week) into an outright feeding frenzy.

That being my first chance to woot some Ty, I of course joined greedily in. They're chillin' in the cellar, waiting for the right time. I try not to think of them when drinking some so-so juice, 'cause if I did they'd disappear too quickly.

I think about twice a year or so. Last time was last July. And before that was January.

Were you sleeping? We just had it the week before Dry Creek (5/19). It was the first dual week offering (3 TC set - 2004 TyTanium, 2003 CS, 2004 Merlot; 3 TC Updated set - same, but with 2006 Merlot (they ran out of 2004); and then the 3 TC Field Blend set).

So you might be looking at another 6 months or more.

Don't worry, you'll pick it up quickly.

Just keep an eye out for some of the popular woots: Wellington, Caton, Corison, Kent Rasmussen, Armida (PoiZin), Woot Cellars (Monkey Prize, Polyphemus, Humbug), & Little Vineyards. Those seem to sell out quickly. Sorry if I missed listing any others.


Edit: I personally loved the Peltier Station Petite Sirah offering, and we did buy a lot of those as well. Many have posted they really enjoyed it, so it may sell out quickly if it appears again.

El Jefe:

Up in Angels Camp and in Murphys this weekend. Had a blast and brought a bunch of wine home with me (who needs UPS anyway???). Missed the winery (by a frikin' mile-will explain later) but hit up the winery room in Murphy's (beautiful house by the way).

Lo: the PS is to die for!! bought a couple to lay down for when the wife is able to drink again

Sadler-Wells? Woot Cellars Wanna Be Red? Madison Cellars? SakéOne?

I forgot SW sold out, and Madison Cellars is popular (I think).

Edit: SakéOne also sold out the last time.

Since WF/WD didn't elaborate, could this be construed as an early hint for tonight? Talk amongst yourselves.

I was wondering about that myself.

As to the list I made, I was trying to use wines I've seen fellow wine.wooters brag/talk about. I haven't seen too much on the Saxon Brown, but the Vino Noceto did sell out early on a Tuesday, so that may be the one WD referred to.

Has anyone tried any of the Twisted Oak wines? What would be your take on them? I'm thinking about buying a pack for Father's Day, but need someone to sway me.

WD,

Two items.

1) Have you considered adding a quicker shipping option similar to Shirt.Woot?

So the normal ground shipping method (with updated summer shipping) as a default, with an option to go with a more expensive overnight/2 day Air shipping for those wineaux who are concerned about heat/cold.

I just thought of it, when I saw ERMD post in the pub about not ordering due to his concern of the wine sitting in a Brown Oven (UPS Van). Not sure if you could do it, but wanted to ask.


2) We Wants Our Clue!!!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Judging from this week's response, Twisted Oak may be back, especially if people start raving about the wines.
