Anyone else having a problem with tracking numbers for recently shipped orders showing as "Not found" on the FedEx website?

As a FedEx account holder myself, I received a notice recently about a change to their tracking system that affected tracking numbers. Maybe woot didn't get the memo?

Here is a tasting note for this wine.

"Cumulus Estate may have been named for the cloud formations so common in the area, but when it comes to producing wines their feet are firmly planted on the ground. This lovely bright-gold Chardonnay is loaded with dreamy peach, lemon, and tropical fruit notes. Crisp with some vanilla and orchard fruit on the palate, this dry, full-bodied, buttery Chardonnay will go nicely alongside pasta with chicken in a cream sauce. (VINTAGES panel, Jan. 2010)"

Dudes ... "Summer shipping is in effect so don't worry about your wine."

Hey guys, I fowarded Chip's comment about FedEx to customer service. I may not hear anything back until Monday though.

So, now, back on track.

Hey! How about this wine?

My purchases this summer have all not shown up in the FedEx system for a while after Woot gave me the tracking number. I'm assuming they are on a refrigerated truck to a closer FedEx hub since they've all eventually shown up and were sent via 2-day once in the FedEx system.

I approve of the new Woot summer shipping.

I just thought I would add to the missing sales due to not shipping to my state. You missed out on a Georgia Sale by not being licensed to ship to.

Woot, just another form of OCD

Oh, the wine... I don't know anything about it but at $7 a bottle, shipped? Drink up!

No, really - drink up. It's a 2007 and needs to be consumed sooner rather than later.

drink fast if it's still good- the notes on the wine being:

" ... This lovely bright-gold Chardonnay is loaded with dreamy peach, lemon, and tropical fruit notes. Crisp with some vanilla and orchard fruit on the palate, this dry, full-bodied, buttery Chardonnay ..."



Combined with Cellarnote's guide notes on Chardonnay aging found here.

That state:

"These wines (Chardonnays) can age for 4-8 years depending on the wine. Be aware that Chardonnays that have fully gone through malolactic fermentation have greatly reduced life spans. Malolactic Chardonnays have a smell of butter and unusually golden color when young."



Spells: Danger Will-drink-too-slow-Robinson!

Any notes on folks who know the wine or the wine maker on how long this wine has left to be good? I'm gonna check up on this thread in the morning.

Is it just me or does this offer have a fairly short list of state licenses (19). It could just be my sleep deprived brain but I could swear that seems to be noticeably fewer than most previous offers.

Yes, it's about five days since I was informed my Wellington order has shipped, yet still "not found".


As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

I wondered as well. Illinois is ALWAYS on the shipping list. We are funny that way.........in A LOT of ways!!!

Not your imagination. It's International Saturday, and approved states are generally far fewer than for domestic production.

Same here, FedEx numbers say "not found." Want to make sure someone is home when wine gets delivered!

I bought a case even though I'm concerned about the age but the price makes it worth the gamble.
I'm still not crazy about the new website, it's hard to find things like the ship to states...

Buttery notes generally = MLF. So if the above is accurate that would suggest drink soon on this offering.

Note that MLF does not mean short life for all wines. For example, I believe that almost all red wines undergo full MLF.

I got to ask...Woot's in Texas, right? Woot is selling this wine, right? How can a Texas seller not ship to Texas?

quality posts: 1 Private Messages jlikesilver

Since I happily pay Texas sales on all my Woot purchases, I'd really like an answer.

see the very first post in the thread, by Cesare. And then read the second and third posts. And if you continue reading the thread you'll probably find about ten other posts that discuss the topic.

Happy reading!!
