Got this the last time it was up, but have only tried the Pinot.

It was OK, but not great. Very light, almost subdued, not very complex, but would make a good enough Tuesday night wine. I haven't dug into the whites yet though, as I've been saving my whites for the summer months.

Overall I would say that for the price, this is well worth the money, just don't expect to get a $50 bottle of Pinot out of the deal.

Bummer x2, no Ohio either but I already knew that from last time they were offered. Still, I checked the states list just in case.

These wines are Kosher for anyone who wants to know.

No Idaho shipping from Oregon? Ouch.

Bought 1 last time around and in for 2 this time just for the whites. Haven't even tried the pinot yet.... but Willamette pinot can't be too bad for the price.

Thanks for sucking on one and the mini-rat; I've not yet gotten around to any of mine, but $15 for Tuesday is pushing it a bit for me.

Well worth the read for anyone who might be on the fence. Excellent participation from Phil, the winemaker. (and a lot of whining about the relative lack of ship-to states from myself and others, lol)

This looks to be about $60 worth of wine for about ... well ... $63.

I should of been more clear. My wife loved the whites and when she's happy the house is happy I had a glass of the riesling and it was good. Dry enough for my taste, but enough fruit and sweetness for my wife to tell me to buy more if it came back. Sorry for the poor review, but I didn't take notes and can't remember the specifics.

I love the fact that I live 45 minutes from the Oregon border, and can't get it shipped here to Idaho. Stupid!

Your math is perfect; this doesn't seem like a deal, but more of a convenience for us hooked on the woot-off.

If I didn't have half a bottle of Tempranillo at home to kill tonight, I'd open the second bottle of AlexEli Pinot just to refresh my memory, this could be a really nice deal, I just don't recall it being stellar, but it's always worth a second look

I'm not usually this open with people, but I want to get some advice on a very personal issue.

You see, my next Woot! will be my 100th. I REALLY want it to be special, and this is a good looking offer, but I'm just not sure. What if it's not as good as it looks? I don't want to regret my decision.

Should I hold out for that very special offer, or go ahead and give in to temptation? What if I don't find the Woot! that's right for me? If I wait too long, will I have to settle for a wine barrel stave or a mini barbecue grill?

Sounds like you should set up a mail addy at a Fed-ex/kinkos or UPS store just across the border!

Good thinking. His BAC can't possibly get high enough to blow .08 within 45 minutes.

Looks like you already went in, or you mis-counted...you have the black square.

I just hit 100 on the Expression PN that came up which is a little special for me as xpinotguyx hooked me up with a good tasting at their facilities in Napa, and the wine was absolutely gorgeous IMO.

I am actually drinking the AlexEli Riesling from their last Woot offering as we speak. Clean and very light. It's not a wine that would stand up to, well, anything, but it's a decent wine for sipping with a spicy salsa or a few cookies. If I didn't still have the other 3 (the pinots, and the gertzhoweveryouspellit), I'd be in for another. Sadly, we are running out of space in the basement!

We were drinking the Pinot from this offering when it popped up tonight.

This is an excellent everyday drinking Pinot. Soft yet vibrant cherry notes with a hint of tartness and spice. Well balanced, excellent structure and great for either pairing or sipping. Typical Willamette pinot, great value.

We really like the Pinot so we are ordering again. Haven't tried the whites as of yet.

That's just weird. It's showing 99 for me.

Thanks everyone who Wooted for us!... Interesting and appreciated to get all of your feedback! For those of you who have had some of our wines I hope you enjoyed them.. Our whites are light and refreshing, with good fruit tones and balance. The Pinot is a Pommard Pinot.. typical of this clone is a lighter body , lower oak tannin, and with a bit of acidity.. I find to be very characteristic of a Pinot you might find across the Atlantic. In fact it held up very well at the London Wine Expo last year. For a touch over wholesale pricing its a good deal. Thanks everyone!
