I just became a member of this site because I heard InZINerator was featured on it today and HAD to comment!!

I've been working for Scott Harvey Wines as a graphic designer and illustrator for almost two years now and have to tell you guys- this WINE IS DELICIOUS. It's just a wonderful blend. And Mike, the artist, has been a great friend of mine for years now, so I can vouch for his talent- it's superior. The labels are unlike anything out there and are definitely worth the purchase alone! The wine paired with the artwork makes it a perfect purchase!!!

****What this website doesn't mention is that one of the labels has been discontinued (the one that is pictured on the right, with the guy holding the bottle out in front of him), and a new label with a new character is currently being bottled! SO, BUY THE 3 PACK AND GET ALL OF THE 3 ORIGINAL LABELS WHILE THEY LAST!!! With shipping costs, it makes more sense anyway! The new label should come out any day now.

If you splurge on just one wine this month, make it this one. Scott Harvey, Jana Harvey, Michael Harants and everyone else at the winery are amazing and so is this wine!!!!

I'm looking for a wine to go with a roast. I was thinking about a syrah-cabernet sauvignon blend, but I wonder if this might be of greater interest. I'm buying wine for about 20 people, so I'll need 4-5 bottles. Thoughts?

Wine David,

What the heck is the story with North Carolina?

I ordered 2 without even looking at the states listed as NC has never been excluded before. I need to know if it will be canceled and I will have to place my order again to have it delivered to my SC office instead.

This is my first purchase of Scott's wine so I can't personally vouch for quality, but he has quite a few fans here on woot. And I was just saying that if your friends are anything like my friends (or myself for that matter), that 4-5 bottles would be sufficient for a taste, but not a "party"

I have updated the spreadsheet using the InZINerator 3-pack price, which is a pretty good deal, itself. However, and this is usually the case, no one can touch wine.woot shipping costs. Strangely, the winery 3-pack costs more to ship that 3 individual bottles (just a smidgen), so shipping costs are adjusted as well.

Also, by that point, observations for me were just thumbs up or thumbs down. So I could not have had any more to say on why it was good.



I think so. I also remember the Barbera being a wicked delicious wine.

Speaking of which, Scott, is the Barbera we had at Tra Vinge the same that is blended into this Zin?

Nope, haven't opened them yet, but I thought they were yummy during the farewell dinner, and I think we also tasted them the day after at Scott's (Cesare, ktttest, ddeudig, & bahwm).

General guidance for a dinner party is half a bottle per guest (assuming everyone drinks). So you would need 10 bottles. If you are having a dinner party for wine.woot wineaux, you would need a bottle per person. They were commenting on their lush-ciousness, not your guests.

Regarding your original question, I'd be more likely to pair elegant cab or big merlot with a roast than zin. I don't think the zin would be bad (and certainly Scott's wines are awesome) just not a traditional pairing.

Ugh! Why oh why did I just have to read this thread? Late last night I almost went in for 2 simply because the labels look so kewl (and I do like Zin) before stopping myself because I've already made two purchases for August, am rapidly running low on funds again, and am SOOO far beyond my capacity it's not funny. I had to skip the first Scott Harvey offering back in March due to having already made multiple purchases that month.
But now I'm seeing too many rave reviews and even rpm saying he's gotta get some. *cry* What am I going to do?

WD, why'd you have to put Wellington and Scott Harvey in the same month?

Time to get on the board and tell you about the wine. First off the labels. Our nephew Michael Harants designed them all. After he finished graphics school at Long Beach State, we siad " Now that you're out of graphics school it's time to got too work" I said I wanted a label that he as a 26 year old would buy. He came up with three examples to choose from. Jana and I likes them all. With today's technology we decided to have them printed three up thus putting four bottles of each label in a case. The front labels are graphics only. It is the back label that tells you what the wine is and gives you the vintage date, which is 2004. Needless to say the labels have beeen a bit controversal, North Carolina has out lawed them all together saying they appeal to much to miners like Joe Camel does. Mike also designed the Jana label and the Angel ice label. He has sence gone off to be very succeseful in the graphic arts world. The next InZinerator bottling will have a new graphic designed by Sarah, who posted earlier. It is called the femnight. The future bottlings will rotate through different graphics with each bottling. Now about the wine. The wine is made to be user friendly and to have fun with. It's low pH of 3.4 allows it to have enough acidity to go with food, but it also has .8% residual sugar that allows it to be consumed alone with good company and a cigar as some of our fellow wine wooter did here at our place under the Napa Valley oaks next to the vineyard. It's lower alcohol allows it to be a wine by the glass where you can enjoy it for lunch and still go back to work. Again my European training showing through. This is the tail end of the vinatge, so we were only able to release 150 cases of wine for wine woot. After that, we'll have to wait for the new wine with Sarah's femnight label, which will be 2006 vintage. We did not bottle a 2005.

Is it hard to get 3 labels for the same wine passed through the board of alcohol and tobaccy?

Could you comment further on the RS? Seems high compared to what we are used to, but the opportunity to purchase a non 15%+ zin excites me.

I agree and had the same personal recollection. I really hope to see that on Thursday, and will be prepared to buy multiples when it does.

After getting 34 bottles delivered last Thursday, SWMBO is going to be a little ticked off that I am buying both this week. But Scott Harvey is up there with Wellington and Ty Caton for me.

Thanks for popping in Scott (not that we didn't expect you not to). Just wanted to express my appreciation for all of your hospitality when we wooters ransacked your neck of the woods during the RPM tour. I didn't get a chance to sit at your table during our dinner nor visit with the other wooters during the post-tour smoke fest but it was a pleasure meeting you in passing and shaking your hand.

Now, on to these bottles, I get the impression that you made these to "drink now". During our tour, we were able to taste some wonderfully aged Zins. Do these bottles have the structure to be lain down for awhile (as I expect your previeously offered Amador bottles can)? Or should we just pop these during the next year or 2?

Also, why no 2005?
