In for a case. Can't wait to give this one out (and keep a few bottles for myself of course!). Had the same problems as everyone else ordering but now I can get some work done : )

Tøøthstejnn tasted like water with red dye. Even for $10 I expect a little bit more...tasted like 2 buck chuck. I'll pass on this. I can get MUCH better $10 wine at Total Wine...

Awww, if I could, I would! But if you promise not to move directly from Japan to England without a stop in Michigan in between, then perhaps we can arrange a Woot Cellars and Cheese tasting JUST FOR YOU! Assuming we can all wait that long to hold our stuff. And of course, the cheese will have to wait to be purchased as I'm SURE I can't wait 2 years for that

In for a case. Love a good Sangiovese, bolstered by some Cab (Merlot, not so sure about, yet). With the wine.woot seal of approval and a $10 pricetag, I'm sold.

To say nothing of the fact that we'd already tasted more than 2 dozen others by the time that one arrived.
By the way, I have you and your encouragement to thank (at least in part) for the fact that I'm much better at tasting without drinking too much than I was before the pre-tour visit to Ty's tasting room.

Back label text...easier on the eyes for those who don't want to strain at the picture on page 2.

TAKE NO CHANCES. BE PREPARED.
We've specially designed E.H.P to help you survive unforseen holiday crises. E.H.P sustains and invigorates the body, enhances morale, and serves as an essential component of the holiday "Toast."

1) IN CASE OF SOCIAL OR FAMILY TENSIONS
Lubricate conversation & soothe frayed nerves with E.H.P.'s rich Tuscan-style blend of flavors.

2) IN CASE OF UNEXPECTED GIFT EXCHANGE
Affix ribbon or bow to bottle & present to any designated recipient over 21 years of age.

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.

REMEMBER: No wine, however delicious, can prevent all holiday calamitied. Be mindful of winter weather conditions. Don't attempt difficult carols without proper training and supervision. If you experience intense holiday cheer lasting longer than 16 hours, discontinue use.

If anything, by the time we got to the EHP, we should have all been tired of wine. 30 bottles or so... oy... but it was impressive enough to reawaken our palates and breathe a new round of life into the party.

This wine is not dry by any means. I don't think I have had a dry sangiovese from Noceto yet either from the wine club. Not sure where Lighter got that from. I would say that this one is more of a fruit bomb/sweeter than the Toothstejn for those who want to know.



With .78g/l RS and acidity of 0.726 this wine is clearly dry (though the Tøøthstejnn had lower RS and unreported acidity). To say "not dry by any means" seems a bit of an overstatement.

Unless you're saying this is a dessert wine.

Two buck chuck is now 3 bucks. I agree toothsteynn just was the worst of all my wootings. Still holding out on today's woot because I fear it will just be like that one.

so, your palates were already shot, then? it reminds me of the criticism that is oft hurled at wine critics, ie that the only wines that tend to stand out to their palates after tasting many many wines (which 2 dozen would constitute to amateur palates like ours) are the fruit bombs of the world, but i digress. or, better yet, YMMV. :P

Thanks Cheron98 - still debating since I know we will have so many wines coming up with the marathon next week. So don't want to get stuck or even give away as gifts it it is weak.

Not a dessert wine by any means. I just remember the sentiment at the MN party was it did have a sweeter profile to it.

Thank you. There was definitely a lot of pouring out going on (er, of all the wines). We used the 1oz pour tip thing and still ended up having most of the sample pours go down the drain. (Sorry about the sink, sanity... did you get all the red out?) So I don't think it's entirely fair to dismiss our opinions because you believe our palates were shot. We're not exactly newbies to this tasting experience thing.

There were only maybe 3 wines that evening that I ended up going back to for second pours after the tasting segment was done with. This was one of them. Actually I think I went for a 3rd pour of this one...

Ditto to all the above. I'd bypassed the Toothstejnn to my ultimate peril. If the five attage slots aren't already illed, 'll gladly volunteer. Expect this will be well-received at the Christmas party we're hosting in a few weeks. - ExLaxer

I hope you can sleep at night knowing that you just made me buy 3.

Anyone on here know if this could be shipped to Lubbock, Texas? I know Texas is on the ship list, but I have heard that some wineries cannot ship to that city.
Thanks for any help.

tmr, why such a crabbypants?

I have tasted this wine twice (Vegas and Seattle), and both times I really enjoyed it. It is not going to change your life, but it is hella-awesome qpr. I think it has more structure than the Toothsteejn but is not as food-friendly (less acidity, not as dry). Great party wine. I am not sure about the aging...I'd say probably quite a bit better a year from now, but beyond that, who knows. I got a case. I don't need more than a case of any (affordable) wine, since I don't tend to gift any away.

I think this is probably the Wannabe Red that we had at a Seattle tasting (at my house...may have had a different one at dkralston's) in the past. In retrospect, the wannabe did not taste like the Toothsteejn as it was bigger than that.

Well, I'm in for 6! And, I'm talking 6 orders, not just 6 bottles. Yeah, it's 3 cases of wine I haven't had, but it has become a Christmas tradition for me to give out Woot Cellar wine to people I work with.

Glad the site worked long enough for me to get the order placed BEFORE the sellout. ;)

I actually agree. I was extremely underwhelmed by the toothsteijnn (and I was a huge proponent of Humbug and the Rinfrescante).

I'm hoping this is better. Though, I bought a case of this and gifted a case. I want to support Woot Cellars so they do more of these, as some of the best part of any party is the story that goes along with it. If I can not feel too bad about crushing several bottles of this at once with people at a holiday party, then by all means.
And of course, if anyone has any Humbug left, I'm interested.

oh, lord, not you too...

dearest fellow wine.wooters,

i was merely having a little bit of fun at the expense of those fortunate enough to attend The Vegas Extravaganza which weekend-of-fun-in-the-desert-sun i desperately wish i could have joined. that is all. that my sense of humor was found lacking otherwise is clear beyond a reasonable doubt.

most humbly (as i am most righteously) yours,

tmr

NOTE: not that i thought for a minute that anything i have to say about a wine that i have not sampled would in any way impact its likely sellout before day's end.

EDIT: special apologies to cheron who, unwittingly, bore the brunt of my unfunny funnies.
