Wow! Everyone's up and we're getting B O C treatment to the wine.woot servers! Lots of anticipation on this one. Can't wait to see what the fuss is all about... la brat me if you deem me worthy....

So....anyone wanna guess (or spill) who the winemaker is on this one?

zero, count 'em, zero quality posts...

Ha ha, we crashed the wine.woot server.....
Service Unavailable is all I get now.....

Don't labrat me as I already had it.

Ok, WD can delete it if he doesn't want it out there.

Label =Awesome, and funny
Wine = Decent everyday drinker.
Again sandwiches between the Corison Cab and the 2003 Noceto Riserva Sangiovese, this didn't compete. But you are also not comparing apples to apples there either.

I found this a tad on the sweet side compared to the Noceto Riserva. Strawberries, and cherries abound in this wine. Light color as your typical sangiovese is. Possibly a little bottle shock since it was overnighted and only had a couple hours rest?

I picked up a case as this is a wine that I can open up and drink a bottle while I scarf down a bowl of popcorn watching a movie by the fire. Also a wine that you can drink all by itself as it doesn't need food to cut it. This is also a bottle I know that will get finished at any holiday party I bring it to.

For me the Toothstejn may have a little more character to it if people want a comparison.

We thought it might be, and I don't remember if WD or George confirmed it or not in Vegas.

I am definitely down to be a rat this week. Pretty good week for me to give a good rattage.

    My last 5 woots:
  • Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon x2
  • Woot Cellars Boss Monster Zinfandel Six - Pack
  • Armida Winery Poizin Trio
  • Olivestri Siloro olio nuovo
  • Wellington Vineyard Designate Cabernet Trio

Correct. Different blend. TS had the qualifying quantity of Sangio to be labeled AS a Sangio, whereas this is just a blend. My theory is that of all the sample bottles that went out, 2 were favored above the rest. One of those became Toothstejnn, the other became EHP. That's my theory at least. So some of you who've had the samplers probably had this at some point.

I'd say its Lucas & Lewellen, or Mandolina, which they also own. This seems to be closest the the Mandolina Toccata, which is also a Super Tuscan style (different blend tho) and retails for $18. We had that one on woot in July 07. It was good.

Any pictures of the bags you can share? Wonder if they are plain brown paper bags, or something wootish. How many people noticed you get 5 bags for 6 bottles?

Sparky has the notes Where the toothstejnn is more cranberry as the predominant flavor, this one is decidedly more cherry. Slightly more full-bodied, iirc. But I didn't do a side-by-side. Just that I remember being more impressed by this one than the toothstejnn. Definitely a pop-and-pour. Nice and smooth straight out of the bottle. Although you should use a glass. Really.

Click the picture on the main wine.woot page... it shows 5 different bags... not saying those are the ones that WILL be included, but I'd take them at least as samples.

I'm in for a case, hoping Mosby may have something to do with the wine since they specialize in Cal-Italian & I have a few of their wines in my cellar...

The wine seems to be very closed-in and seems to have entered a dumb stage. Sort of a Marcel Meursault.

I think WD will make them a auto Labrat, if they haven't been one in a while.

Are these corked or screw caps? Because the Humbug screw caps didn't go over so well with my prejudiced giftees.

I can't resist the blend, pre-rattage reports, flavour profile and value, and well, I have not bought a Woot Cellars (not counting a bottle bought from another wooter) wine before. I also admit I like the bag idea; neat extra.

I'm gonna need to become a real wino once I get moved in because I think I'm approaching 50 bottles at this point.
