My only trepidation about this is that two of the selections are sec, rather than my preferred brut (brut that I am). I would love to hear what the winery rep(s) have to say about the sweetness. On the other hand, this is one time I would love to enter the great Labrat-lottery (labrattery?).

Intuition (plus last year’s offerings) tell me that the end-of-week selection will not sparkle (at least not literally). My guess is that it will be a still pinot noir.

Aside from my "well publicized" love of all things Mumm and sparkly, I am a direct descendent of a signer of the Declaration. How can I NOT be in on the best red, white, and blue offer I've seen in a long time???

I - who NEVER begs for labrattage & who has never been a labrat - am now officially begging!

Vertical, vertical, vertical!!! The shipping container they use is great - vertical rounds completely enclosed in styrofoam. Just use that and put it in a cool(er) place.

No Ohio this week. Oh well. I was definitely going to get this one, but my Visa is pretty happy I didn't. I would have had to switch some funds around for this one - I'm a poor college student, and payday isn't till Friday!

I even looked to see about sending it to another state - No Indiana or Kentucky either. Just wasn't meant to be, I guess!

I'm not a huge fan of the sparkly, and already have enough in the cellar. However, I would love to try the red. Maybe someone can bring one to NoVa #5 (or #6 for that matter)

I'd love to order but since I STILL have NOT received my order for Ty Caton, I doubt I'll be ordering for a while. 3 emails and still have no idea what is going on since no one has replied. I've never had a problem but this is unacceptable. AFTER my order was damaged in the first place in the middle of shipment. SIGH... no wine for me... i guess there is a wine Tom Servo too. ;)

Mmmmmmmmm.... wine!

Yep, I'm still waiting on my replacement TCs, too. Ever hopeful, I keep ordering more, though.

We served the Brut at my wedding reception two weeks ago and it was a HUGE hit. Very tasty indeed.

awww, thanks, jwhite!! It is a contributing historic property so it is taking close to 3 years of painstaking, loving restoration, but I've still got everything original from a century ago (and that's just the interior!). When I saw these sparklys, it sounded like a great addition to the obnoxious and rude partying that is about to ensue (along with the studio speakers) - the good neighbors are invited, the bad ones can just call the police!!

We can call it anything we want. The company, on the other hand, has to follow the law.

And with Mumm Napa being so closely tied to Mumm France, I doubt that they'd do anything to cause confusion.

My family and I were in Napa back in March. All three of us enjoy sparklers enough to join two wine clubs - - - Mumm Napa was one of them.

We just opened the Reserve Brut last Friday - - We really enjoyed this bottle. It was a fantastic pairing with seafood ravioli alfredo. As with any good wine, this stands well on its own, but a good pairing brings it up to the next level.

There was cinnamon toast on the nose, and some caramel. The flavors reminded me of vanilla peaches and cream with a nice nutty finish. This was one of those rare bottles that we finished with dinner.

It's 36 minutes from end of labrat submissions.... and I'm down for the count.

The special ladyfriend would be "soooooooooo haaaaapppppppyyyyy" me if I got labratted this week. Just thought I'd mention that.

Thanks, Cheron!! I've been pretty quiet just ordering and drinking, but it has been such a long and hard road and as I get close to the end of it, I just feel like screaming, "Yayyy! Come party with me!!" These sparklys reflect how I'm finally feeling.

There are some networking hiccups going on at the moment. Check "your account," and see if it's there. The emails should be queued to go out as soon as they can.

The last Mumm trio was the first time I bought was in for more than one, and then we promptly received about 4 more bottles of sparkily around the same time. I want to here about the reds from the labrats before I hit the button.

I just updated the "How good it this deal?" spreadsheet to show savings percentage both with and without retail shipping (woot shipping is included in all numbers as you can't get it from woot without paying shipping, so is really part of the cost). As some of these are bottles that a lot of folks can find locally, I figured the alternative comparison might be helpful.
