This is from the Tudor guy. Ought to be well-made. They look off-dry and good acidity, which is how I like them, but I'm concerned that Santa Barbara area is still too warm for really good examples of these varietals, highlands or not! Any comments?

Also, I see the description has some Pinot Noir in it. That WOULD make for an unusual blend.. a Gewur-Pinot, or Riesling Noir...

These look delish. I'd love to hear what the rest of you have to say before I bite, though.

5 year old whites? Sounds interesting, but hard to pull the trigger on an aged white.

The age has me wondering as well.

According to the cellar tracker links, the Gewurzt received an 84 in April of last year. And the Reisling an 87 in September.

This has me wondering what my oldest white is at home...

$19/bottle on their website. Interestingly, they don't have any Radog with a more recent vintage.

I'm sure there's a reason for that. Anyone know what it is?

It's Otter Cove, all over again! Same bottles, same appellations, same 36 year old Riesling vines, same price. The only difference is the labels and the fact that the Radog Gewurz is 2007 instead of 2006.

To be fair, they were bottled in March of 2008 so really only 4 years old but this has seemed to be a theme during the wootoff. A lot of wines being offered that are close to the edge of their ideal drinkability. If I had a nickel for every 2006 that has been offered so far...

I can get some nice '06-'07 German Rieslings at the local wine shop that specializes in closeouts for around $6 a bottle so I'm not really seeing the QPR here even though I am sure that I would enjoy both of these wines.

Forgive my ignorance, but is there an actual connection between Otter Cove and Radog or are you just pointing out a similar deal?

Spring cleaning has been the theme across all the woot sites during this woot off

I'm speculating but they appear to be identical. The Alsatian style dry Gewurz from Monterey County and the Santa Lucia Highlands Riesling from 36 year old vines. The bottle similarity caught my eye and then I looked at the descriptions and realized they don't just look alike.

Maybe you should go over to the regular woot and pick up that glow in the dark volletball set.

Where do you live? I want to visit your shop! 8-)
Some people prefer a good Riesling at this age, with the extra petrolly taste! I'm on the fence, but curious always.

NE Ohio. I got a case of the Scott Harvey '07 InZinerator from that wine shop recently for $6.99 a bottle and a variety of German Rieslings (Auslese, Spatlese and Kabinet) for $5.99-$6.99.

My biggest problem is that I have been buying way more wine than I've been drinking so I have to limit my "drink now" purchases, even at closeout prices.

That's the great thing about shops. They like to get rid of inventory, and people think that young= better. A good Spatlese or Auslese you can happiy store IIRC! Even Kabinetts can last quite nicely. I love wine-store people adn supermarket types who will sell off the old.. and often best.. stuff on deep discount! Especially reds..

This place doesn't seem to discount the reds quite as deeply as the whites although I got some good deals on reds also. Kendall Jackson '07 Grand Reserve Cab for $14.99 was probably the best. I should mention that these are email only deals for those who subscribe to their list. I have to print out the emails and bring them to the shop to get those prices.

Ok guys. I ordered both: the Radog and the Otter Cove..

I will try to let you know how they compare on the 17th/18th of March.

I picked up some terrific Barolos at about 70% off that way recently, at my local shop that discounts the older inventory. I don't find deals like that often, but I go all in when I do!

Mind sharing the name of said shop? I'm intrigued and am located outside of Cleveland.

Excellent! Thank you!

We're planning a trip to visit a couple of the east side wineries this weekend so we might be able to stop by there on our way back home.


I'll check out the dinner as well. Thanks again!
