I sure hope the Twisted Oak wines are in the same league as those outstanding wines. It has been fun reading eljefe's comments.

Since I learned about WW in February, the Wellington Syrahs (2002 Reserve and 2003 Cuvee R), Iron Horse Cabernet Franc, Caton and Scott Harvey wines are among the very best I have ever had in 4 decades of tasting. The 2003 Wellington Cuvee R is my all time favorite under-$20--a true gift to wine w00ters from SB and WD.

Sign me up for 3 of anything Peter bottles.

Kind of close, but not quite the right angle. You need to adjust your aim a bit.

Also, Mandolina/Lucas & Lewellen tends to be pretty popular. We last got Mandolina in a winter woot-off.

Well if that means it is a Wellington offer, that would point to the all-teinturier Noir de Noirs, which I would be in for in a second.

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

Edit: SakéOne also sold out the last time.



Mandolina has been on here several times, but I think Mad Cellars only once. I was thinking SW and Mandolina as the likely ones you "missed".

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.



Mmm ... Saxon Brown Syrah.

Of course, other clues seem to be focused on "aiming" and "missing" ... how does that relate to Wellington?

I ended up pickin up a Sunbeam 34 bottle one for under $100 because it was on clearance. It seems to do a solid job at keeping the temp around 57. and there isnt much moisture. So far, its done a great job, you may wanna see if you can find one...I've heard stories about the Vinotemps...some praise it other bash it, so yea, do your research. I know my sunbeam one is low end but it does the job

Maybe they're a "Shot in the dark" which would lean towards the Noir De Noirs. Seems like a stretch, but Peter's been far more obtuse than that in the past.

you should probably get a little temperature gauge, set it so that the gauge says 55-57 degrees in the middle of the fridge. I need to set mine to 48 to get it to actually be 55.

I thought we were done with the irresistible wines for a while Please don't be Wellington, my wallet can't handle it. Nor can the quickly-dissipating space in my cellar. Must drink more wine...

Although going back to the original "You missed one"... Wellington was the first thing Sparky listed. So might not be?

I have absolutely no basis for this thought, but we haven't had a sparkling offering in a while... And I know lots and lots of folks, myself included, absolutely LOVED the S. Anderson sparklers that we've had (especially the blanc de noir). Sparklers for 4th of July??

I know if it's more Wellington, I'm screwed. I just got my wine club selections from Peter (thanks!), and bought a buttload of the Ty wines, and I just don't need more irresistible wines this week!! That's not to say I won't buy it anyway, since I too will order anything that Peter puts in a bottle. It's just that I don't have the budget for it right now.

Wait. Actually, perhaps I should amend that last statement, knowing how sick you guys can be... :D

Wines that would empty my bank account in a flury of "I want three" and gifting: S. Anderson, Saxon Brown, Wellington, Corison, Kent Rassmussen.

Sigh....long overdue for sparklers....agree the blanc de noirs Anderson was quite good....in any event, I hope for some kind of sparkling wine..... (though some of the zins mentioned in this thread sound darn good too as does Peter's noir de noirs)

Maybe Iron Horse? That had good reviews and posts since it was here. And they do have sparklies.

The only thing is that we haven't seen WD post any other clues since this morning (if it was a clue), or SB since the last "miss" post.

So it seems probable that it is a Wellington offering (MaskedMarvel again), possibly the Noir de Noirs or the Syrah England Crest. Or a dual week offering?

I just read the clues, and I really don't think it's going to be a Wellington. WD said one was missed in that post and Wellington was in the list. So it wasn't missed.

I'm pretty sure I won't be staying up until 1am tonight to find out what the week's offering will be. I have too long of a day tomorrow and I'm still quite tired from the week and weekend in general. So with any luck I wake up to it NOT being Wellington or any other Cult winery.
