Interesting ... Scott, what are the varietals in the Early Burgundy?

And of course, how long can each cellar for?

Oh these look good! What's the drinking window on these? Is that Early Burgandy going to hold? 3.7 pH seems on the higher side for a longer lived wine.

Never seen an "Early Burgundy" from Scott. And a 2007 Cab with the sleeper 2006 vintage.

I can't imagine we won't be getting TN's and chatter on this one.

OK, now that I've bought these...

What on Earth are they? These are Scott Harvey wines I have never seen before. They do not exist on his website, and are wines I have never seen in some four years of membership in the wine club. Is this a Woot Launch? What is going on?

Ohhh....would've been killer to have two bottles of the 2007 Napa cap for a great six pack, but this is looking like a very good five pack!

Scott how's the 2007 cab drinking now?
How long can these all be cellared?
I've had some great Red Hills Wines, what style is this and how's it drinking?

My first reaction on seeing only the picture: great! More white label Zin, Syrah, and Barbera! Then I saw the varietals and went Why The Frown?.

Scott, help us out here! Did you make these yourself? Where'd you source the grapes?

Just drank a 2008 white label Barbera tonight. Awesome stuff.

Hmmm. Just ordered two (blindly at this hour as we haven't heard TNs or from Scott), but realized we must have slipped into an $8 summer shipping mode since my order last Sunday. Yikes. That and taxes are taking quite a bite out of my wine buying, but I'm sure, if it's SH, it will be worth it. Somebody tell me I'm right!

This is an auto-buy! Early Burgundy is something of a rarity, and worth trying for that reason alone, without even getting into Scott's wonderful winemaking.

Scott's Cabs are always excellent and worth seeking out.

The 2006 is a super limited production and should be fun. 2006 gets less praise as it was sandwiched between two really good years in 2005 and 2007, but some of the 2006s are lovely.

The 2007 - only complaint is there is only one bottle in the order.....

I believe Klez had mentioned a difference between the red and white labels.

Red=New World style
White=Old World

Is this correct? Not that I can order from here anyway...

Hi Mark,
Early Burgundy is also known by its French name Abouriou. This comes from a 90 year old vineyard on the edge of Calistoga. It was planted in the old days for color and tannin. Although this wine does not exhibit much tannin. Has decent color. It is more Pinot like in structure.

I would drink the Early Burgundy now. Jana and I have been enjoying it like you would a Pinot. Next comes the Napa CS. It is drinking well now with about three more years to its peak. The Lake County wine is well structured with high elevation tannins that will hold it for another ten years.

I made these wines for a custom crush client. They were bottled back in 2010 and have been sitting in my warehouse as shiners. The client sold his company and decided not to go forward with the project. Because of that you are being offered some unique and fun wines. WineDrew talked me into putting the Scott Harvey label on them and offering them up to woot. He and I have been enjoying them for some time now.

I like the Lake County Cab the best of all three. It is from the Red Hills sub appellation. I have been making wine from the vineyard now for almost ten years. It is the Hawk and Horse Vineyard. Go to their website and take a look. The wines from this vineyard show great complexity and structure and have won many awards.
The offer should sell out fast, because there is only 30 cases of the Napa Cab. Although I would not mind if I got three bottles of the Red Hills cab instead.

White labels are our reserve line. The wines are more elegant and layered.
Red Label wines are not new world style but a little more in that direction from the white labels.

???

I know you were asleep. But et tu?

My post asking about cellaring (which is the same as "drinking window") was before his post. So how was his technically first?????


Plus, I asked about Early Burgundy, which Cesare got a (You get a gold star.) for answering!!


No one wants to share? I'm trying to make room for the RPM Tour purchases, not need another locker!

I supposed I may have to go in on this ... since A) it's Scott and B) it's Scott. And C) I have no wine in the queue!


Edit: ALL CAPS IS MORE ANNOYING.

Two things I don't like about Wine Woot:

1. When I have NO plans to buy any additional wine, an offer that is very tempting shows up.

2. With the community forum, it is difficult to pass on 1. above when the favorable comments are overwhelming.

Other than that....I love Woot!

In for 1!

I think this answers my question, but I will ask specifically: Is it true that all three of these wines were bottled on 9/8/10 as it says in the specs? If so, was this done due to winemaking druthers or more for a commercial reason (the client deciding not to go forward with his project)?

These look like a really nice opportunity to enjoy a rare varietal and also some very nice cab. Thank you, as always, for your offerings and participation.

Tough offer to share, especially when that Early Burgundy sounds like something we would enjoy at home. I convinced myself that we need all 5. So, in for one, plus another for my wine-loving work buddies to divvy up.

Seems like an interesting offer but due to these wines being crafted for a different winery originally that may have have been a little different stylistically. Maybe some community tasting notes would have been a great idea. Since these use the white label I assume they should be comparable to Scott's winery white label wines in style. Kudos to WD for the arm wringing.
