I have 53 wines pending delivery. Plus, Turley allocation just hit and I'm going tasting (and to pick up the Turley) in 2 months. And SWMBO is about to murder me. I'm not buying anything for a while.

I've felt the same way for a while, and yet Pour Pour Me and a garment steamer just arrived. Dang woot and their impulse buying business model :P

Yeah, being murdered puts a damper on buying things.

That seems totally unequivocal. Anything earlier than that, e.g. February 2011, in my lexicon is most easily referred to as "February 2011."



Except it was me referring to February 2011 as "last February" that started this farce. I was never trying to refer to February 2012. Sparky just had to go and be all argumentative and semantical about it.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Still don't know how much Turley I'm going to order...prolly a case that I'll split with someone.

Um, add Switchback & Vincent Arroyo to the list. Along with normal wine club shipments (Ty, Scott, Tablas Creek, Vina Robles, & Titus PS). Oh, and David Fulton. Oops, and Martini & Concannon from during and just after the RPM tour.

I came upon this earlier this week:

International Cabernet Day

It is this Thursday August 30th (tomorrow). Given that we have had tempranillo and PS days in the past, I wonder if WD caught this and has anything in store for us. If so it could be a very fun day. *Wallet Cringes*

Depending on the pricing.... I was finding their retail prices to be about double the price at which I would hem and haw over them. They had some decent stuff, but were not realistic on their pricing for what was there.

Or a plus thing? The weekend thing doesn't hold water because it is a cabernet DAY not a weekend or week.

There are a couple cabs that I think are coming up... But I expected a woot-off not a plus deal. We'll see maybe there is something COMPLETELY new in store for us..

Transformer went bad at my house yesterday morning so I am at my parents house with my wife and child trying to escape the heat. My house was 87 deg when I left it at 6pm yesterday.

The wine is hopefully ok since it's in a closet on the cooler side of the house and the wine fridge which didn't have power hopefully stayed cool enough.

Power is back on today so we can head home.

Hope the house cools down and the wine is okay! My apartment has a nasty habit (love it in winter) of retaining heat, so this summer has been a challenge to keep the wine all in good shape. (I don't have space for a wine fridge.)

I'm just hanging out, really.

Holy crap, Mark! I know everyone jokes that you don't drink your wine but how much storage do you have? I thought I was bad but I can always tell my husband, "There's this guy on wine.woot who makes me look like a lightweight!"

Thanks for that!

It is true that there is nothing new here. These are all deals I have passed on before.

I'd LIKE some of the 3 black tie type offers but:

a) Chris of super sonoman is a great guy but I have not had a $50 experience with his wines. I'd probably go in on this cab at $40 (really, a pair for $80)

b) The 2007 Tom eddy cab is one of the best wines I have tried....But they pair it with an unknown 2006. I would easily pay $50 for the 07, even $60 would be no real stretch, but the addition of the 06 reserve makes me hem and haw. I /may/ pick this up. I wish it were $6-10 cheaper.

c) The white cottage was tasty but not $85 tasty.

I guess my problem is that I have a REALLY high standard for $50+ wine and the slope is really steep after that.
