I love this stuff. I really missed it last year. Really great extraction, needs some air and/or time in the bottle, but this is yummy.

You know it's Fall for real when WineDavid puts the PoiZin up.

And, unlike Romeo and Juliet, this Poizin only makes for happy endings!

I knew there was a reason I stayed up another half hour when my eyes were telling me to go to sleep! I just bought 6 bottles of Poizin this weekend and had planned to open one up with dinner tonight before I got sidetracked. Now I definitely will have it tomorrow (oops, later today!) when I get home from work. In for 3!

In for one. I love the poizon, never had the antidote before though. Hope the 2009 is as good as all the previous years I've enjoyed this wine.

$25 for the poizon 2009 x 2 = $50
+ $19 foor the 2010 Antidote on Armida's website

Totals $69 plus s$h looks like a reasonable deal
at $52.99 here if you buy 1.

I couldn't resist, have always wanted to drink a bottle of the poizon and then chase it with the antidote, but have never had the antidote. I thought the antidote use to be 325 mL bottle...looks like a 750 now.

As a long-time wine.wooter, I was waiting for this deal. PoiZin is one of my favorites, and I can't wait to try the Antidote!

Didn't Antidote used to be sweet?

I love having these around to take to Halloween parties, so I'm sure I'll be in again.

Lab Rat checking in!

Ok folks, my wife and I are wine novices (but loving the journey), so here it goes ... our first review:

Just like when I first got a hold of some Boss Monster, I thought this was going to be another mediocre wine wrapped in clever packaging. Well, just like my actual experience with Boss Monster, this wine very much exceeded my expectations! Far more rich and flavorful than I could have predicted. It's very pleasant to the nose. The taste is dark and tart on the palate, starting with dark fruit followed by a lingering cherry and pepper (love the pepper afterglow here). The wine starts off dark, with a tartness that succumbs to sweeter tastes with a finish of red fruits and peppercorn. This wine is very enjoyable; my wife and I agree this is one of our top three favorite reds. Concerning antidote, it's also definitely thumbs up. The fragrance is mild. Once it hits the tongue there is more going on than one would expect. It's a bit sweet on the finish, though not like a dessert wine. This is one of the more interesting whites we have tried. For the price point, this set will be hard to beat and I will definitely be getting more today ... now actually!!!

Thanks Woot - this was so much fun!!! Hope to do it again some time!!!

Unnerving. :D

The first person to hold a dinner party and serve Sauvignon for all the guests except one guy who gets the Poizin, without comment, is my hero. Remember to look real shifty as you pour it.

I had the antidote before (thought I got it here?) and it WAS 375ml not 750 - it's great to see it's "normal" sized now. The 375 made me think it was going to be a sweeter dessert wine last time and thankfully (not a fan) it was not (made it confusing as to WHY it was only 375) Must confess to actually having a bottle of 2008 PoiZin Saturday evening too... mmmmmm GOOD

No caskets. Only the reserve comes with the casket and nicely engraved bottle, which you can order from Armida direct.

The Poizin is one of my absolute fave wine.woot finds. In for two. Happy that this time around it comes with Antidote; been meaning to try it.

Oh, and available to rat.

The "antidote" IMO is terrible. I ordered two bottles direct from the winery and aside from not liking the taste, it was full of lees (a residue) and I had to filter it as I poured. I was told this is normal, but I didn't like to have to filter the wine before drinking it. The Poizin is EXCELLENT, one of my favs, so this deal basically gives you two bottles of Poizin at its regular cost and you get a free bottle of Antidote to try.

Hey, Steve, how about a super special deal on the Poizin Reserve in the casket for those who bought three of these deals? Sounds fair to me!

Nope, half the bottle I buy I buy for the label, I keep every bottle of wine I drink and display it on my ceiling.

Um, I wouldn't say it is wrong; it is what marketing is all about. The timing is excellent, obviously. Since there is a strong fan base for the actual wine, I don't think liking its appearance is something to be ashamed of.

I'm really on the fence, having snagged 2 bottles of D-cubed last week for Thanksgiving. But then again, I'm thinking about comparing the two. Sigh.

I would buy this to take to a Halloween Party, but I would doubt this will be delivered by 10/31. Why doesn't wine woot put these offers up earlier?

It would truly be something to participate in such a party and not have it immediately devolve into quotes from The Princess Bride.

Don't get me wrong, I love the movie too, but folks do get a tad carried away sometimes.

First Time LAB RAT reporting in!

Hi Everyone, be patient, as this is my first time being a lab rat for Wine.Woot.

We were very surprised to receive a package from Fed-Ex with not one, but TWO bottles of wine. We got them on Thursday, and decided to let them sit until Saturday and Sunday for consumption. We normally drink reds, but have been branching out into whites during the last 6 months or so.

It was late on Saturday night (after 9:45pm) so we decided to start backwards with the white "Antidote" instead of the red "Poizin" due to time constraints on letting the wine breathe.

So, without further ado, here are our (myself and hubby's) VERY inexperienced wine review:

ANTIDOTE:
-Was refrigerated for 6 hours.
-Pop & pour: Hubby's first response "Tastes flat"
-Me: Very light scent, maybe some citrus, not a whole lot of smell coming from bottle, or the glass.
-Both: Swirl in glass, swish in mouth, first taste is alcohol. Slight amount of sweetness. We decide to let this sit for a few minutes and see what happens.

15 minutes later:
-Both: More citrus smell, but still not a lot of fragrance. Light dryness on the back sides of our tongues on the finish. Still tastes a little "thin" and there is some heat from the alcohol. Seems to be easy enough to drink, but not putting forward a lot of flavor.

POIZON:
-Pop & Pour: Hubby's first response "Screw Top?!?..... Hmm, smell's good, not that bad". At first opening I smelled ... Blackberries? Something yummy, smell of alcohol/heat.
-Color is deep purple/burgundy. Pretty. Swirled it around in the glass, doesn't really "stick" to the sides much.
-Nose in glass is definitely more berries, something sweet and rich smelling, maybe currants.
-Both: Tastes "finished" no green pepper or bitterness on our tongue. Definitely some heat from alcohol, but not unpleasant.

15 minutes later, and a pour through the Vinturi:
-Both smell some richness and oakiness to it. More berries. Very yummy by itself, easily drinkable without food.
We make dinner, grilled hamburgers and a handful of Ruffles potato chips.
-The wine is ok with dinner. Spicier with the food.

1 hour later:
-Both: Really like it. I can smell sweetness in the glass, with a floral undertone. But it doesn't taste overly sweet, which would be a turn off for us.
-Both: This is nice, pleasant to drink alone, needs a better match than burgers for food. Rich at first, not overwhelming.

All in all, we REALLY liked the red, and would definitely purchase it. The white was ok, not our usual favorite, might be nice and refreshing on a hot summer day, but now that it's fall.......
Being that this includes two of the red, I am definitely in for one.

Hey Rugrats, nice to "see" you again! I'm thinking about your idea/request. Perhaps our wine club discount (25%) plus Bruce and I can personalize the bottle for you...

Hey gang, just to clarify, the 2010 Antidote in this offering was bottled in 750ml glass. We plan to continue bottling Antidote in the 750ml bottle, primarily because the 375ml bottle gave the impression that it was a dessert wine. While very fruity (due to the long, cool fermentation), Antidote has no residual sugar and is dry.
