I got my order in (thanks insomnia!). PM me if anyone in the Portland area really wants a few bottles, I'm sure we can arrange a swap.

What a great bargain. Sorry I missed out on the legitimate excitement.

I see I'll have to do penance now. I got a case early this morning. The more I thought about it, I finally came back for more and low, the SOLD OUT button slapped me in the face.

I was sorrowful because I had only one case of wine until I saw so many with no wine.

Central Illinois here - willing to split 2/2 on the mystery bottles if anyone in the area happens to get different from mine.

I guess the wine.woot staff can take the weekend off.



Ahem, we will not be taking the weekend off.

So does that mean we can expect a new offering to pop up sometime soon?

While it will serve to drive the stake deeper into my heart to find out that is should have been available, I would like to know about NH, if for no other reason than to look forward to another of your offerings sometime in the future.

WD - an OT question on labrattery (prompted by the link in your signature).

After signing on for ratting honors, are lucky rats simply selected from among those who have ordered during the week? More specifically, if a registered rat buys and then posts that they are available for ratting, does that factor into ratting selection? Conversely, if a registered rat knows that they will not be available to rat and says so, does that get noted by those who rule the rats?

I saw it this morning and thought I'd ponder it for a while. When I come back it's sold out!

Nertz! I really enjoyed the last offering. Have one bottle in the basement.

I'm liking the idea of trading the mystery vintages. Doubt there is anybody but might as well try. Anybody in the Sheridan, WY area let me know.

Well lets get cracking already...after missing this deal I need to buy some good qpr vino dammit!

But then again my new fedex guy informs me that he will not leave booze without a signature. I had a good 12 year run...sigh.

I don't think we've ever had a Woot-Off over a weekend yet. And while there's always a first time, I'll bet Kyle's wife's engagement ring there won't be one this weekend.

Next Tuesday however ....

Labrat PS

It's super ridiculously hot here (I don't understand why we couldn't have a spring this year!) so I turned the rest of the bottle into an impromptu post-work sangria.

And I can confirm that while it drinks wonderfully straight, it makes a very yummy sangria!

But now my bottle is gone and I am sad, my life, it is so hard Grats to all who snagged some, I hope you enjoy it! And if you don't, I'll take it off your hands :p

BOOOO. I actually worked hard today and just now checked wine.woot and I love tempranillo! So sad I missed this! Anyone in the DFW area want to split their case... maybe ordered too much lately and no room? *Crossing my fingers*

Darn! So bummed I missed this- by a long way it appears I love tempranillo...and bargains. I just had a sip of the Truchard CS at my family reunion last week. It was lovely and made me a little sad to be 8 months pregnant.

Interested to see what the weekend brings...

Good one - definitely the only reason I didn't buy was "woot-imposed". I can echo everyone else here who lamented that they (for once) didn't check first thing in the morning. I would've pulled the trigger for sure w/o hesitation, but I've been lulled into the expectation that we have at least 48 hr or so to mull over the weekend deal... guess this just reinforces my early morning checking addition!

Edit: just realized the NC folks were hosed on this one after all - even though we were eligible for the previous Truchard as vrthomas pointed out. Oh well, live and learn, thanks to the winery and WD for the great offering.

BTW, have I missed something recently? Didn't know there was a WineDrew!

How can you be sad to be 8 months pregnant?? Though I could understand sadness at not being able to have some wonderful juice from this offering available to celebrate the delivery. That is what you meant, isn't it???

Even when paying by CC, you only need to type in the security code after the first time.

Pretty active thread for a sold out woot

I suspect the current offering will turn into a pumpkin in another hour or so . . .

A couple people were still asking about the labrats so I decided I had to post. Unfortunately, unlike SWMBO, my neighbor that signs for wine must have been out jogging because I didn't get it on Thursday. I was working from home on Friday, but the offering was sold out a couple hours before I even had it in my hands. I don't know how many labrats they pick for these, but I assume everyone else decided it wasn't needed anymore. The main point is to help convince other people to purchase, and if it sells out in record time, obviously we aren't needed to help convince people anymore. I hope you will see more of us reporting back on Monday's offering.

I was happy to be picked as a rat even though we don't drink wine all that often, so I can't add much that hasn't already been said. I'll give you a bit of background on our preferred drinks so you can weigh what I have to say. Flavored Rums and Vodka's are much more my speed. Wife doesn't drink often, but we do both like rieslings and other sweeter wine's. The dry reds aren't really our thing. I obviously picked up the Triacipidis that put me in the running for the labrat, but my previous woots were basically all the desert wines they have offered from esoterica, paeonia, v sattui riesling, and the hunt country late harvest/ice wine set.

So we are newbies to wine, and rarely drink more than one glass that somebody else brought. I can't give a lot of insight to this wine as it isn't really my style. I can concur on the vanilla notes, as well as it opens up a bit after sitting for a while. It is a very dark red and a little smoky/leathery/earthy. But it doesn't have so much going on in it that it would overpower whatever you're eating it with.

We both thought it was fine, but again both of us like sweeter white wines. If you like medium bodied slightly dry/acidic reds, then I'm sure you'll love this one.
