Anybody in Northern Virginia/DC want to split a case of 2007 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley from the Treasury Estate wine sale?

I'd be interested in 4-6 bottles of either, or would do 4 bottles of each too.

Do you have a referral email so that we can look into the sales? These employee sale sites are pretty decent. Haven't purchased yet but if I find a brand I know I'll jump.

2014 - 20 Btl. Fjellene (10 bot), Urraca Chard (10 bot)

I've got 2 email addresses for the folks interested in the 99 BV Georges de Latour Private Reserve from the employee sale. Anybody else interested in 3 bottles? I'm going to let it go to sleep if I don't hear back soon. Too much other stuff going on to worry about this much longer.

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

I've never actually tried Silver Oak, but the price for the Alexander Valley on WTSO seems to be approx what it sells for at Costco. WTSO is throwing in free shipping on 1 bottle though.

I feel like that's the case with most wtso deals. It's the price you can get it for at retail stores where available with the option for free shipping.

For me, the usefulness of WTSO is that they offer a lot of wines you CAN'T find at Costco or other local retailers. Their prices seem good to me - almost always below CellarTracker average. On the Silver Oak they specifically said the discount wasn't up to their usual percentage - it was more about availability.

All that said, I have looked at about 20 wines on there today and haven't yet bought anything.

I agree with this assessment. It is very liberal with the international style. I find it to be heavy. It is good wine but not great.

I've only gone in for one so far, the Christopher Creek Winery Sarah's Vineyard Russian River Valley Estate Bottled Petite Sirah 2005 for $14.99

This one came up a month or so ago, and I thought about grabbing it then, so I ended up getting it this time.

If they bring the Palmeri back, I'll be in for that as well, otherwise, nothing is really grabbing me. Most everything seems to be WTSO repeats.

Don't worry, I'm not religiously monitoring it. I'm testing out an app I wrote to track these deal sites, and it does a much better job than I could do by constantly refreshing.

Yes, it's an iPhone/web app that will monitor the wine deals for you and send alerts when new deals are posted if you want them. I wrote it for myself, but I'm going to release it once I clean it up since I need some resume fodder.

If you've got an iPhone with iOS 6, send me a PM, and I'll put you on my beta test list.

I'm showing that one was up for a little less than six minutes. I wish they'd let you finish checking out once you had the item in your cart.

I think I'm going to run a report after this is over so we can see just how long some of these deals were available on their site.

Many interesting offers. Seemed like alot of 88 or 89 pointers (from CT). Only picked up the 2009 Howell Mountain Cabernet White Cottage Estate 'Risa' ($18.99). Had picked up the Sangiovese of theirs' when it was up on wine woot a while back. Howell Mountain fruit, so it should be pretty good.

Agree with this. All the wines we tasted on the RPM tour from Wine Cottage were very good, and at $18, this is hard to pass up.

I somehow managed to snag a couple of those, but I missed another deal I wanted which ran out between the time I clicked and the time the cart displayed.

My final tally was:

3x 1999 Charles Ellner Champagne Brut Millésimé Champagne Blend
2x 2006 Le Gode Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese
2x 2005 Bodegas y Viñedos de la Marquesa Rioja Finca Monteviejo Valserrano

At least I think that's final! Is this really gonna end at midnight?

edit: looks like it did indeed end at midnight. The offer there now is one of those deals which only has info from the winery and Jonathan H Newman, which translates to "Auto Don't Buy" in my book.

Did anyone know that WTSO guarantees their wines to be to your liking? Has anyone attempted to return a wine they didn't like?

They just posted this on FB:

I am so impressed. Even at 11:56pm (EST) the wine is flying out the door. If you haven't tried this one get it now. It is almost done. Remember if you aren't sure, every wine is guaranteed. If you are not thrilled with the purchase we will refund the order. Give it a shot

I have never returned but I have contacted them about bad bottles and they quickly refunded without hassle.
