Surprised this is still going! I think the only woot.wine to NOT sell out has been the costly-for-one-bottle-of-woot-wine Polyphemus (which I would gladly violate the SIWBM to pick up again). Production must be well over 1000 cases.

1230 cases would equate to a nice, round 50 barrels of wine (TS offering was 40 barrels). That would mean 2460 "woots."

My prediction is for a bounce around 2PM EST and sellout by 6PM EST.

I have been ratted. Slight problem though.

Bottle arrived while I was out doing errands. My wife opened it for me and was in the kitchen. When I got home all excited and rushed in to see it, she thought she was being attacked. Wine and glass everywhere. I soaked some up with a towel and will squeeze and strain it (no glass shards) later. First we have to clean up the mess. Next time, I won't let her read the labels.

Slight eau de dishtowel on the nose at this point. Will make for a difficult lab rat report.

Guess she took the back label too literally:

3) IN CASE OF POLAR BEAR ATTACK
Grasp bottle firmly by neck, break base on solid surface & defend with quick controlled side-to-side slashing movements - not forward thrusts.

Sounds like she missed since you are ok enough to be updating us.

Did she slash or thrust?
This is the first report I can recall of anyone taking a w00t back label seriously.

I broke down weeping, so she was safe and stopped waving the bottle.

I am a professional skeptic and I have to say that I doubt the veracity of your report. I find it too much of a coincidence that your lovely bride would attempt to attack you, PolarBear, in the manner suggested on the label. I think it more likely that:
1) you have not been ratted, or
2) the wine does not, in fact, have a nose of dish towel.
Care to come clean?

Perhaps the results from the last record breaker dazzled them with $$$ possibilities and they vastly ramped up production. See below.

wow, this was a close call... I usually check wine.woot religiously -- but I'm on vacation this week (woot!) and I just didn't think about it until last night.... and Immediately ordered one, without even getting the wife's blessings first.... I then waited for her to arrive home... I told her what I had done, and then she asked me "why didn't you buy two?"

gotta love her.... (and yes I quickly fired off and e-mail and upped my order)

In for 2!

I'm curious.
Are we seeing critical comments from people who are not generally thrilled with the varietal, or is the issue Sangiovese lovers who did not like that particular offering?

My first woot!

I've been lurking on woot forever. Finally decided to hop on the bandwagon with a case of the EHP. The humor and gift bags made the decision to buy a case. Hell, even if it's carp wine, the novelty of the bottle and gift bag makes it worth $10!

in for 2!

This is after asking wifey last night if she was cool with buying these for us to use at holiday parties and/or give as gifts. She, being pragmatic, of course said "no". Guess I accidentally found my credit card info already plugged in, and uh, tripped and hit the gold button by mistake. Ooops!

Good thing I'm shipping them work!

I thought the toothstain to be a tremendous value and am very familiar with sangiovese. It's nicely balanced, has bright acidity and isn't a booze/fruit bomb. I think, perhaps sadly, people expect the NO WIMPY WINES mantra to accompany their w.w. purchases.

Clever, tricky wife. She put the real EHP into a decanter and put some of my homemade wine into the bottle for "realism".

I'll be able to post a full labrat report later today.

I agree with you. I thought the Toothstjen was a very nice bottle of wine, with good fruit, even better balance, and easily comparable in quality to an $18-22 Chianti. It's very much a food wine. I had a bottle at lunch a few weeks ago with my partner who, though no connoisseur, drinks quite a bit of Italian wine. He was very impressed with it, especially the PVR.

My problem was it lacked complexity and was just a very thin wine that IMO lacked flavor. I dont like fruit bombs either. That in itself is keeping me from getting any of this although I'm awfully tempted. I just dont want to end up w/ another 6 bottles that I will use to cook w/. With my luck this will be a magnificent wine that I miss out on, watch!

your husband is awesome, congrats on the rattage, I hope he's back soon and you can enjoy a couple bottles together.
