It's marked Napa so it appears to be a nearly Rutherford cab...

According to the Slingshot website, the cab is from Juliana Vineyards, a 3,250-acre ranch in Pope Valley that has 350 acres planted to grapes and another 400 were available for planting. The vineyards provide grapes to such wineries as Beringer, Groth, Duckhorn and Luna.

Pretty sure the description is in error. It states it was released in spring of 2010, but the vintage is 2010??? We can piece it together if someone provided the oak treatment/duration.

Yeah, I saw that too but the bottle says Napa so they must have too much juice from out of the AVA. Or maybe there is a dogleg in the AVA...

$23.00 a bottle on the winery website. So the Woot offer stands at a cool $8.17 less per cork pulled.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Pope Valley not an actual AVA, at least not yet.

He said 8.17 less, not 8.17 per bottle.

For the winery: Can we get some stats on this? What the alcohol %? What's the pH? TA? Brix at harvest? I'll take anything you have! THANKS!

He said 8.17 per cork pulled (which equates to per bottle). I think what he meant was $7.17 less per bottle...

Since it's either really late and/or really early wherever you guys are (and you may still be sampling the wares in order to provide us with tasting updates), I think we should all just agree this is a pretty good deal. As long as you have space for another six bottles. Woot, I'm sorry, but I can't keep up!

Any chance wine woot will crank up warm weather shipping a little earlier this year? It's been in the 80s in Atlanta for two weeks now, and there's no sign of relief any time soon. We are dreading what May - August will be like if it continues to get warmer with each passing week.

As long as we're asking for all this data, how about drinking window?

Still not a huge fan of over usage of DOF, but not only was this a creative shot, but all the bottles are standing upright;) Wasn't sure that was physically possible at the Woot studios anymore, lol..

Once again, no he didn't. He said 8.17 LESS per cork pulled. But there is no point in arguing this.

I just hope they're not selling this wine before its time.

Let's just show the math
- w/o s/h
23-(89.99/6)=8
This means an $8/bottle savings over the winery price

- w WW s/h included
23-(94.99/6)=7.17
This means a $7.17/bottle savings over the winery price

This is woot, we need to veer away from the stylistic shots. How about some woot monkeys drinking the wine or David, Neil and Ali getting hammered. Or just have some fertilizer bottles with wine all over the place and one broken jagged bottle standing in the middle showing the wine label.

Here's another link to what I assume is the same article.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35108346/ns/business-success_in_hard_times/t/lean-year-rich-vintage/

At the time they were a startup working out of a warehouse buying bulk juice being dumped ala Cameron Hughes.

It would be nice to get some details about how the wine being offered was made/sourced.
