But when I take a bubble bath, I prefer a white zin. It complements the scent of the floating vanilla candles well.

Relating back to that WootBot question. . . This would be a great place to offer a mix pack. 2 of the 06 Zin and one of the Late Harvest Zins ,or even a rose, they have on their website. I think there would be much more interest. just my 2 cents.

I know I may be in the minority, but I'm really hoping some cheese gets posted soon. I'm that rebel who loves Wine Woot but doesn't drink wine.

$28 per bottle on the website with a 15% 1/2 case discount (30% for members). After adding tax (yes, their website calculates tax) and shipping, you would come out decently ahead of the member price. Not a screamer, but not a bad value either.

This was offered by woot back in Nov 2011. Here is a post to the discussion blog. Also, there was an intro by the winemaker that might shed some light for those who have not heard of this maker.

Has there ever been a wine.woot deal that not even one person bought?

Just curious and I'm not a cat, so I'm safe.

The previous post about cheese got me thinking. Maybe this is a 3 day woot-off and maybe since we have had no non-wine items so far, and tomorrow is thursday (typically the non-wine day), tomorrow will be all non-wine woot-off items.

from Comstock.com
Dono dal Cielo 2006 Zinfandel, Placer County $40: This is a classic Zinfandel, reminiscent of the great Zinfandels from the late 1970s and ’80s. This isn’t your typical Zinfandel — heavy, high alcohol and overextracted — it highlights brighter fruit notes with aromas and flavors of cinnamon, allspice and anise. The fruit component is raspberry and cherry. It has good acidity and a balance of light to moderate tannins.

I'm going in for one

This Woot Off has had a whole mess of reds-- in fact, the last several Woot Offs have had a ton of reds. I realize it shows how unrefined my wine tastes are, but I'm a white wine girl. Bring on the whites, Woot!

The Kaleidoscope is also my g/f's favorite. Unfortunately, I don't think there have been any additional vintages produced.

Why would you say such hateful things to me?

But seriously, that stuff is the perfect summer wine, imho. You get the sweetness of gewurztraminer without it being sickeningly sweet. Just light, crisp, and lovely.

****thread hijack regarding the mother ship****

Until now, I hadn't known that Amazon directly sells wine, beer and spirits within its Grocery and Gourmet Food Department...

****now, back to the regularly scheduled pain****

As a fellow white wine fan*, I'm going to pretend I didn't see the word "unrefined" there.

* No really, I get all stuffy and sneezy drinking most reds.

I'm just hanging out, really.

speaking of ligh,t crisp, and lovely....we have a Sav Blanc that drives me to drink, it's a 2010, beautiful mineralities, very crisp. Grown for us in the Dry Creek area of healdsburg, if it's not sold online i can get it for you.
