Poll: It’s International Cabernet Day! Are you participating?
  • 4.6% - Yes! It’s the most magical time of the year! 30
  • 11.2% - Yes. I like having an excuse to drink Cab. 73
  • 12.2% - Yes, but only by accident, because I was going to drink Cab anyway. 79
  • 23.6% - No, I’m not in a Cab mood. 153
  • 48.4% - No, and I’m annoyed this holiday even exists. 314

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

WineWoot has always seemed odd to me. Sure, like 2/3 of the time it's wine, but they randomly throw in olives, truffles, etc.

However, I assume that the person who creates the poll and whoever schedules Woots don't communicate, because otherwise they would be selling a Cabernet today.

Because this poll seems rather cut-and-dry, I propose we instead discuss the following:

What is your process/ritual for red wine?


Personally, I decant it and then drink it over the course of an evening. I'll put on some Frank Sinatra or Amy Winehouse (pun subconsciously intended) and read a good Agatha Christie mystery.

Does a Cabernet drizzle sauce on my sandwich count? I think so.

It's not random at all. Thursday is non-wine day at wine.woot.

I was unaware, but earlier I pulled a bottle of Block 13 I ordered from here years ago out of the basement and I'm sitting down with it now. Just got a static filled voicemail from the coworker I split that order with too. I think he's spying on me and is mad because he drank his all right away and I still have some squirreled away.
