So we just had offers on R & B, as well as Estrella, two wineries with apparently little contact with CT reviewers. Has anyone tried these wines? Again, some rat reports would have been nice.

Apparently it is a PS Woot-Off!

"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." Benjamin Franklin

Yeah, the big problem with this woot-off is that I don't even know if I like Petite Sirah, as I have yet to try it. By all sounds and descriptions, it sounds like a wine I should thoroughly enjoy, but I am still waiting for some wineries which I know I enjoy, some KR would be very nice.

You must might have to take a flyer on one or three of these producers today - you'll never know if you 'find another KR' by just giving one a shot!

And what you'll find today is that there is plenty of 'variety' in this varietal - PS can and is made in many different styles based on where it's grown, how it's fermented, what oak it sees, etc . . .

Cheers!

It is early, go out and find yourself a PS and see if you do!

FWIW, I've tried these wines at a few tastings I've poured at alongside Marc, whose family owns the vineyard, and have always been impressed with the quality of the juice . . .

Me either, but I have a couple in the cellar. Come on over and we can open a bottle or two. You can even help me pack my house up.

It is unfortunate that so many PS have come up because this is a great deal. It would be almost $90 buying them normally, not the $57 we are getting. Plus if you look at there website there syrahs, all types, tend to sellout so somebody must be liking them. I really need to start trying more of the wineries down here for research since I live on the central coast of California and it seems like half of the wine woots come from here.

Looks like this is $29 at the their website, so a decent value.

Yes you do!!!! And if you ever make it down to the Los Olivos area, look me up - would be happy to pour my wines for you and recommend others as well based on what you like.

wine.woot, you're killing me! Why can't we have a woot off at the beginning of the month when I've got a plethora of cash to throw at you? I'm on a wine moratorium as I have to afford the wine bar I bought yesterday. Damn the bad luck.

Larry Schaffer is an even better person than he is a winemake and that's saying something. If any of his tercero wines just so happen to appear, out of sheer coincidence with his posting, you should "jump een eets!" like a faux Russian oligarch in a directTV commercial.

Is this wine.woots answer to the WTSO cheapskate Wednesday?

I ended up ordering 3 items from that and received them yesterday. UNBELIEVABLY fast shipping, almost as fast as a teleportation device ;)

Well I'm working from home today, so I'm going to pop the cork on a bottle of 2006 Meeker Petite Sirah since I too have very little experience with PS.

Anybody tasted the 2006 Meeker PS?

Whites! We need some whites! There has only been one white all month (two, if you include the sparkly one, but I hate sparkles). What gives?

Tough to make a white out of Petite Sirah . . . though I'll see if I can find some of the 'petite sirah blanc' I made one year . . . (-:

I recall having a PS Rose once, I think from David Fulton... Excellent stuff. Would love to see that up

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Agreed. Preferably semi-sweet though. I need non-dry whites and roses. My wife loves white and rose wines (though I am converting her to the dark-side) but something about most dry ones just doesn't appeal to me.

Cute name. Does the group do charitable work as well as advocating for PS?
