No, that's not what it means. UPS has the shiping info, but not the box which is travelling cross-country on reefer truck.
I got this today in NoVA as well as Epiphany trio, & Wellington Mystery wines.

I've finished all three bottles in the company of family.
The first bottle was a resounding "meh". There was nothing wrong with it, but I would have been bummed if I paid full retail for it. It was very light, and really didn't have a lot going on.
The second bottle was amazing. It tasted similar to Chehalem Inox, which is a stainless steel fermented Chardonnay, with a little softer mouth feel and not as brightly acidic. It had wonderful varietal character and my wife and I very much enjoyed it while we prepared dinner.
The third bottle was more like the second than the first, but was not as impressive as the second. Similar varietal character shining through and a very enjoyable bottle.
To sum up, 2 out of 3 ain't bad, but they didn't seem consistent.
I've only had one bottle, and I hope the rest are like the first. It's been a long time since I took a sip of something and said "wow, this is good", but this one did the trick. The fact that it was a chard makes it even more remarkable. I expect good wines from w.w, but this was much better than expected. If they're consistently as good as the first, I will regret not buying more.

How on earth did I get 7 QPs?
