Basically you're getting the discounted wholesale/club price without having to read my stupid emails, buy a full case, or pay the nasty shipping that I have to charge, especially outside the SW. WW can piggyback shipping in an efficient way that I can't. And I do charge retail in the tasting room, especially if somebody complains about the music or makes a snarky comment about the dancing cage.

why else would you have a cage? I mean, I guess I could think of reasons, but they all result in dancing.

Hanging upside down, taping someone's wrists to the pole so she can still hold a wine glass, using the pole as a slide to play guitar . . .
You're right, they all result in dancing!

Ah, I'm in Walnut Creek too. We're actually kinda horrible as a norcal crew since we're kind of spread out but definitely do get together a few times a year or hit an event in wine country. Can usually find a forum thread in community->world of wine.woot.

I have some of the '05 in cool/tacky wooden boxes (a silent partner got a little goofy.) That wine was kind of a cross between the Colossus, and the (upcoming) Black Zeppelin CC Red, except it had no Petite - it was a blend of 877, AB, and Cab.

Yes, there's a Zeppelin Winery '10 Cabernet that recently occupied a few barrels.

I have two of last time's. I'm holding them for at least three years, if not five+.

I need to taste some of his stuff to see if I really like it, or how can I justify buying more? I like that Quixote somewhat.. at leat it's fun. And I love Turley's Rattlesnake Acres. How does this stuff compare?

It's all so complicated!

You might want to try the Bogle PS, usually found at Trader Joe's (and elsewhere) for somewhere in the vicinity of $10. That's a good starter PS.

But this is really nice now. Been sipping all night long. So you could always buy it now, let it sit for a month, try the Bogle, and then try it. You can then sell it (at a deep discount, of course!) to one of the PSadawans.

Sippin on some scotch now. Was a good day, that turned into an evil evening. I could go for a round 20Q's

That rocks. Scotch as well, and Glenmorangie will be there. It'd be of interest to sample some of the Japanese distillate as well.

Nope. Glenlevit 21 for single malts.

However tonight is a blend night. JW Gold. Too bad of an evening to use the good stuff. Not bad enough to use the cheap stuff though.

20Qs is on the main woot site.

Has anyone received this yet? Anyone even have their order shipped? I have a FedEx tracking number, but the "anticipated ship date" was over a week ago and there has been no activity in the shipping history.
