Yes! Does this mean we're addicted?

A "Bon Vivant" from Hunt Cellars would be a nice offer or even a Bell (southern debutante is a belle) Wine Cellars offer.

I know...that 2006 is one of the best QPR wines I have ever had. Period. The Chardonnay was delicious as well. I was hoping there'd be more 2006 or maybe even 2005 hanging around for another offer...

2014: 42 bottles. Last wine.woot: 2012 Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay

That would definitely fit the bill of a $10-15 bottle with excellent QPR that others are calling for - last time I sprung for about 10 bottles and was pleased

Well it's not totally unprecedented - I seem to recall WD scrounging up some extra cases of Rockus Bockus a few months back after it sold out before noon.

But given the time elapsed and the fact that WD has since posted about tomorrow's offer does not bode well. Plus previous posts indicate that there is no more of this to go around. Sorry

That (Rockus Bockus) was Dec 27th my birthday, missed out cause I was golfing, posted how bummed I was and the good lady at Rockus Bockus sent me a message to call her on Monday and BINGO she sold me a Case at the WOOT Price and $5 shipping, NOW THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE,

Gazzi has one left, then he is sold out except for small lots, 25 to 50 cases, that I'm making for firends and family. What is left is a 2004 Pinot Noir in one liter bottles, 85 cases of 6/1L. Again, a wine that I did not make. I did run the pH and make tasting notes. They are 3.42pH, medium color, leather, fleshy, beets, plum, allspice, marjoram, lavender, cranberry, steak tartar. Bright red fruit center and finish.

i thought about picking up another 5 or ten bottles of this wine early this morning (i went in for two the last time it was offered, mainly because i really liked the 2007 and only went in for one on that deal...with much regret!). i still have a few bottles of the 2008 hanging out, as i've been sidetracked with drinking other wine (woot has certainly increased the variety of wine in my cellar...it is a blessing, and a curse). so i resisted the temptation to push that big yellow button in order to give other folks a chance to enjoy the offer. it was a sacrifice on my part...but i do what i can.

No apology needed. It wasn't a line from anything. I understood it was a clue and I was just stating I miss the south.

I too got my Fog cheese today (at room temp and very ripe). Mine was okay but it sounds like others were less fortunate. The packaging was certainly lacking as compared to the other woot cheese offers I have purchased in the past:-(

There are more current posts at the original offer blog here if anyone else (woot staff?) wants to follow...:-/

Definitely Tallulah Bankhead (a distant cousin of Mike Drash from Tallulah Wines)! Yeah, bring on the Tallulah Wines -- was bummed they didn't show up during the woot-off.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tallulah_Bankhead

Tallulah Brockman Bankhead (January 31, 1902 – December 12, 1968) was an award-winning American actress of the stage and screen,[1] talk-show host, and bonne vivante.[2] Bankhead was also known for her deep voice, flamboyant personality, romances with men and women, and support of liberal causes, which broke with the tendency of Southern Democrats at the time to support a more conservative agenda.[3] She was inducted into the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame in 1981.

Based on texacaliali's hint during the Gazzi deal, I'm wondering if the Tallulah offering might be a case deal.

One can hope. At least I think a mixed case offering could be interesting.

I thought the 2006 was amazing. The 2007 not so much (I had 4 of each plus 4 of the chard after a buy from woot probably a year ago). BUT I just opened the 2007 earlier this evening and it is MUCH better than I remember, especially after giving it some air. It was a little hot to start off but now has really opened up!

I've had tracking numbers for this woot and the Saxon Brown wootoff offering for the past 5 days. Basically just says a shipping label has been created but there has been no other activity. Is this normal? I've never had this happen with woot before.

Ditto, any one else experiencing this? I actually had a delivery date of March 2nd via Fedex tracking and now it too has been stuck on "initiated" for a few days.

Yeah, that's normal. The shipping information is electronically sent to FedEx and that generates shipping numbers. They will receive the actual shipment a day to a few days later. Then FedEx has to scan it all into their system. That's when you'll see an update.

If you don't see any movement by the end of the week, then raise a flag but for now, I think things are fine.

Mine arrived yesterday, so just about everyone should have theirs in hand by now. How long to let it rest? I'm thinking Easter Sunday for the first cork pull.

I did open one of these Easter Sunday. Very pleasant bottle, enjoyed with the ham and after as a sipper while watching Bubba win the Masters.
