Apparently they didn't get their hands on the final cases. You can't believe everything you read!



I tried to look up the wine spies link and couldn't get it to come up. I'm interested in what they said when they said they had the last cases. Can someone bring it up? I do know that when I bottled the wine on 6/3/10 that I bottled a total of 447 cases all with labels, but no foils. At a later date, Gazzi bought foils and put them on at the warehouse using my foil machine. As of this offering there is a total of 170 cases of 12/750ml.

I really preferred the 06 to the 07. The 06 was 100% Pinot and had much more going on in the glass and nose. I wish this one didn't have the Syrah in it, but I'm going in on for one because its still good juice - just not as good.

Yes, but Gazzi liked it. The food industry usually stays away from blue because they think it represents ptomaine poisoning.

Would you say this is a drink now wine, or does it still have any evolution left in it?



I would say a drink now wine with about 3 more years left.

I need to check into if I made them believe they were the last cases or not. They usually send me a questionnaire to fill out before they post the wine.

I know I've said this on the Gazzi Pinots before, but I really love them for a "light red blend" niche. The 2007 was really different than the 2006, and the syrah addition kind of takes it out of the recognizable/good pinot noir range for me.

However, I really like it when I need something to pair with those meals that need something more than a white, and less than a heavy hitting red. Price point is great. In for 2 - hoping the 2008 is comparable to the 2007.

Would this be a good choice for a first time wine purchaser? I've always figured if you are going to start divulging in something might as well just jump in and learn to swim. Your feedback is much appreciated!! Thanks.

OK, in for 1.

I've been trying to play with Sonoma Coast Pinots for the last few months and at this price point I couldn't resist. I mean, I just got five bottles of it for the same amount I spent on one bottle of Paul Hobbs.

The only hesitation I had was on the Syrah in the blend, which I assume is in there to bolster the body. I'm a fan of light and complex more than fruit bomb weight with PN, so here's hoping it is still on the delicate side of the ledger.

I liked the addition of the Syrah-gave it more interest to me

Hard to say with the info you've provided. Do you drink much red wine? Do you like Pinot?

Even if you don't care for Pinot, this is a crowd pleaser. The bottle is ugly as sin, but my friends and family LOVE this wine (even one of my relatives who isn't a fan of Pinot). I wish I could feel good about giving it as a gift, but the label... Ugh.

It's a blessing in disguise I suppose that I have to keep them for myself.

Scott, any Inzinerator offerings coming up?

No InZinerator on the table right now. Getting ready to put together another bottling blend this next week.

I'm guessing that separate licensing needs to be obtained for the "Gazzi" label.

I like the label. It's a macho Pinot with a label to match!

This is not a thin, delicate, flowery Pinot Noir. The Syrah adds some oomph to it, making this wine into a bold Pinot hybrid.

I mentioned this with the 2007 Pinot. The Syarh was put in the blend to use it up. Gazzi decided to stop growing Syrah and discontinue it because the bottom had dropped out of the Syrah market. So I used up the remaining Syrah in the cellar by blending it across the Pinots. The Pinots stand well enough on their own. The Syrah adds a little structure and mid palate.

I went in for one last night before turning out the light, but now I think I want another. I'm going to send a msg to the service people and cross my fingers!

I would think that sense Gazzi is produced under our winery bond/license, it can ship to all the States we are licensed in. You may be right, we might not have the Gazzi label licensed in all the States we have our label licensed in. I'll find out at 8 AM.

Thanks for the reply, I really don't know what wine I like. I have had a few glasses that others recommended at dinner before. Never been wine tasting, would it be reckless to order these?

I bought five bottles of the 2007 Gazzi Pinot Noir last June and then five more again in August. I thought it was excellent and a great QPR. I don't often leave myself any tasting notes aside from "like or dislike" but for this one I left a private note to myself that says "Buy some more of this if it becomes available again on Woot." I'm almost out of the 2007 so I'm in for two of these. Hopefully it will be just as good.

They're very similar. You will be happy.

I bought the '07 last year -- one of my early Wine.Woot purchases after some Pedroncelli, Hendry, and Davis Family. The Gazzi is all gone now but it was one that if I needed to make a quick selection for a meal I could pick it and not have to worry if it had aged enough or was too expensive for the occasion. Not a complex wine but no bad traits and enjoyable to drink with and without food.

Like the previous posters, I bought the previous vintage as one of my earlier woots. Decent, quaffable, not a killer pinot by any stretch but a good "everyday" drinker.

I will note that the last ones we drank were quite improved over the earlier ones, so I would recommend holding this for at least 6 months. Should be easy after that unending woot-off we went through!

Everytime I see these wines come up I try to grab some. For the money they cannot be beat. I thought the 07 was outstanding and the 08 a bit more fruity - which helps me bridge the gap with friends who are just starting to like red wines. Bought two this time around.

ordered with skepticism.... mixed reviews lead me to believe it's a good daily qpr wine but not a great wine. but a daily PINOT that has to be opened up some say "a day before you want to drink it?" we'll see.
