I am glad I didn't hesitate. I hesitated hesitating, but man, I am glad I am in. This will be gone by tomorrow.

She only knows of Woot because I usually let her know after the fact when I buy something ;) Either that or she looks over at my laptop and sees it open!

Not a wine guy, but I'm in. I hope these turn out better than my last Wine.Woots. They took forever to ship, sat all weekend in a warehouse an hour and a half from my house in 90 degree weather, and tasted like expensive grape juice after they arrived.

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!!!!

Way to go Scott...guess I'll just have to buy multiples of the second offering.

The relevant stat is sales pace -- this way an offer of 250 does not get an unfair advantage over an offer of 1,600.

Over the past six months, this has sold at the fastest pace of any non-wootoff wine offer (non wine items have sold faster). The TC offer, when blended across the 2004/2006 Merlot was actually slightly slower, though the first 1,000 sold at a blistering pace (more than twice as fast as this deal).

You should buy woot offers directly from wineries while you're there and count them on your "quest to black".

Oh the humanity!!!

I have been patiently awaiting this offering since the last Scott Harvey woot. I even PM's Scott to see if this was going to be offered.

Then, I take 1 long weekend, come back to the office on Tuesday morning, and BAM!! There is the wine I have been waiting for!!!

Trembling, I slide the mouse down to click the "I Want One" button, but wait.... I can't find it... All I see is... S-O-L-D O-U-T

Scott, is there any chance these will be available through "normal" distribution channels in NH - e.g. the state liquor outlets? As dna pointed out, NH was not on the ship-to list for this offering. I'm interested in trying the wine, though. The alternative would be to visit your winery in person -- which may be in the cards come mid-November. DW and I are planning to visit our daughter in California and hope to make some side trips to wineries while there.

Dude... wait, what?

so - sometimes when i try a riesling, i note that its sweet, but something on the finish seems to 'clean the sweetness up' out of my mouth. so i dont feel like its coated with sugar at the end. its something i really like in some rieslings. is this 'clean up agent' the acidity? are sweet things a base, and the acidity neutralizing it? so then a high acid wine with a high RS wine can still taste dry after a few seconds?
