Oriel Jasper Sonoma Coast Pinot 2006 for $15 on LastBottle. Has anyone tried this? I noticed it was in a Woot+ offer a while back.

I was wondering about this one, too. It sounds pretty nice...

I just got a similar email, only $15 for me though. After looking through their selection, I'm still going to pass. Lots of plonk, poor prices, no real deals even with $15 off. Plus half the wine can't be shipped to Washington. If I had $25 instead of $15, I would consider the Ispiri cab. Not a screaming deal, but not bad either.

A couple of suggestions:
1. 2008 Leone d'oro Montepulciano, @$22.99/bottle
2. 2004 McClean Private Reserve Syrah, @$29.99/bottle,
3. 2007 Guido Woodenhead Venturi Zyn, @$24.99/bottle.
Sorry this is so late.

Glad fellow wooters were able to cash in.

Back to $70. Hopefully our orders are filled. I'm guessing it was a price mistake.

Yes, this.

In a strange turn of events, I apparently had a free shipping code in an old shopping cart. For an unknown reason, it allowed free shipping on an order, and once I placed it, when checking to see if it would still work, got the error that the code expired 1/21/12. Regardless, my order had 0 shipping, so I'm happy. WL is my goto for kosher wines when they offer free shipping, and with 400 or so bottles but only 5 kosher, was time to get another case or so.

I have been reading and re-reading the ad copy on Invino. I'm all the way through the purchase process, except for the final button. What's making me hesitate is that while they say Cathy made the Phoenix's first Syrah vintage, it's not clear that this 2006 was the first. It seems a bit slippery, the way it's written. They never come out and actually say that she's the winemaker on this one. Or am I reading too much into this text?

But by 2003 we realized the potential of our vineyard site — and the desire to make our own wine overpowered our sense of reason!

We enlisted the help of a good friend and outstanding winemaker, Cathy Corison, to make our first Phoenix Ranch Syrah. The wines were crafted to pay homage to the old world Syrahs produced in the northern Rhone of France, displaying an elegance and connection to the soil. The minerality is balanced by the full bodied fruit that the California sun and fog provides.



Is Invino generally trustworthy in their descriptions? It's been a while since I've bought from them.

Edit: Given the quote in bsevern's post, where they come out and say Cathy made it, I probably have been overthinking this. I have a $20 credit burning a hole in my pocket, what the heck.

Edit #2: well, I just re-reread bsevern's post, and realized that those are his words, and not a quote from Invino. Guess I read too fast.

A while back, I bought what they described as a highly rated 2009 zinfandel, but what they sent me was the 2010, about which I knew nothing. When I contacted them, they said they inserted a card in the box stating that they received only the 2010 from the winery, and that it could be returned for a refund; I didn't see such a card. I returned the shipment (at their cost) out of principle, and they issued the refund promptly.

You bring up an interesting point and now have me very curious. They refer to it has having 2011 "Winemaker of the Year Pedigree", which does not necessarily indicate she made this particular vintage. If not, it is fairly slippery marketing. I do see evidence online that she made the first (2003) Syrah, and the 2005 (http://thewinespies.com/directory/wine/400).

I've not stumbled across much info on the 2006 yet, though....still digging.

Someone should just write Invino and ask them. They are usually quick to respond.

It looks like other Syrahs made from this vineyard's grapes faired very well that year. Here's an example:

I went ahead and got a bottle after realizing I already have a bottle of the 2004 in my cellar. Should make an interesting comparison especially if Cathy was the winemaker for both vintages.
