well not me because I am not affiliated with Woot. I just steal the Staffs comments and pretend they are my own, but yes that is essentially what they do.

Jana's father loved to grow pansies in the garden and Jana's mom loved butterflies. Their grandson, our nephew Michael Harants desisgned the label. He did the InZinerator and Angel Eis as well.
This wine is made the way Napa Cabernet used to be made back in the 50's and 60's. With its low pH of 3.48 it is made to be a 20 year wine. It was bottle aged for a number of years before release becuase it was to course when freshly bottled.



Thanks Scott. Always a pleasure having you around here. This is out of my price range and out of my league, but I bought some anyway. Loved the InZin I popped two nights ago and looking forward to the Old Vine that will be heading my way soon. Had the rest, now try the best right?

If a fruit bomb comes up I'll describe it as "good for its style, if you like that kind of thing" if I think that is the case. I realise people have very different tastes. kylemittskus is more of a Parker lover.
I'm pretty eclectic, like to experiment and learn, and find some "big" wines do work. And others which do not. CdP for example, but then a good one of those has complexity, length, acid and minerality rather than just fruit!



Thanks Richard,
Ive been slacking and havent been on in a while since I havent seen anything that sparked my interest. But I did order one and look forward to it, hopefully woot still uses fed-ex so I can hold it. All we need is some Corison and we can complete the woot off. Has anyone uncorked the Kronos from last years thanksgiving woot off? I still have mine in the cellar.

Just let Jana know we are back on woot with the Cathedral. She wanted me to let everyone know the price on the Cathedral is going up to $75 per bottle tomorrow. So this will be the last chance to get the wine at this price. I just delivered 267 cases of Old Vine Zinfandel to woot today. Looks like I'll be heading back over there with some Cathedral.

Still fed-ex. Keep a close eye on it though. Some recents have been shipped before tracking info was sent to recipients though.

Scott, PLEASE persuade Jana to let you make the Michigan Riesling again, and more of it!!!
It's so good you'd surely find it possible to sell to some very nice restaurants as well as the public.

Raising prices after this: Boldness will get you places.. you know the sale psychology: if it's expensive people will assume its quality. Like charging what others would for the Cathedral. which is definitely better than some $100-200 wines from the Napa overpriced crowd. I hope you find many buyers at that price on the tourist trail!

Damn your eyes, Scott Harvey. I'd been on the fence about this, but that statement makes it just too much to pass up. I'll take four, thanks.

Seriously, it's nice to see something show up that I want. Thanks.

It takes months to find a customer, but only seconds to lose one.
The good news is that we should run out of them in no time.
