R & PW,
If you get a chance, Handley Cellars (Dry Creek) offered a fantastic SB on a woot a little more than a year ago. Their Gerwurtz & Chard was very good...dry and delightful. I know you have a learned preconception about your Chards, but these wines were excellent.
There is really no point in trying to explain liberty to people who don't understand what it means.

As a winemaker, you have to always drink other peoples wines, or you get used to your own mistakes. I find woot the best place to get a wide variety of wines at the best price. And it's easy.
Way too easy.

I think i'd feel differently if it were another winemaker, but Peter is as earnest as they come. We'll likely give some options, but i'm hoping folks will go with the flow on this.
Open to more discussion here.
I already have earlier vintages of both the Roussanne and Marsanne in my cellar. I'm happy to have either.
This was a mixed case deal, so I would find it hard to believe that anyone bought this only to get 2 bottles of Roussanne. I’m just grateful that Peter continues to sell us his excellent wines at such good prices on Woot. And so willingly shares his knowledge with us too!
Fill your glass when it is empty, empty it when it is full, never leave it empty, never leave it full.

Got my case today (South Texas). . . Interested to see the Marsanne-- I have had the Roussane, so this adds another grape to my Century Club (tho' I find it hard to believe I haven't tried one somewhere . . .).
Anyway -- glad to have the wine (any my KR PS 6 pack finally came today - FedEx guy just looked at me...) -- my Kunde mixed case is gone & I was looking for a good mix.
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy."
