Summer's Last Hurrah!

Autumn's here, and the time is right… for clinging to the final days of Summer! Seriously, just a few more weeks? No? Well, fine. We'll let them stick to the "Labor Day ends it" mentality. We're holding out 'till the Equinox before we make it official. Grab a glass before you have to grab a jacket.

Bright Light? More Naked Winery? Someone save me! These are delicious. (No seriously, I'm at my last bottle of the Outdoor Vino - turns out they're great for spontaneous BBQs, trips to Outdoor Shakespeare, and handing a very welcome friend when she shows up a couple hours earlier than expected...)

I'm just hanging out, really.

I'm tempted by the Duarte Georgetown Rouge... the ubiquitous Richard Jennings gives it an 87 on CT and the description is interesting, including "tart blood orange, tang, smoke nose."

C'mon guys I didn't even get a chance to try the fruit bomber yet. Maybe this weekend to decide if I want to order more.

ABV seems a bit high on the Georgetown Divide for a sipper. Fermented to dry? What's the pH and RS on this?

There's Clif in the main picture.... Too bad it's not up, I need some more rough and tumble wine.

Sorry about that, usually pictures are composed in a way that will best display the main products of the Woot Plus sale, but as you've noted, there's no Climber wine in this offer. In good news, six fantastically different offerings to select from!

We don't mean to break your hearts, but apologize if we did today, and we'll make sure that feedback gets passed along.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Durring the original offering of Pour, Pour Me, there were quite a few dissenting opinons about the price of a "Fruit Bomb" being so high for what the wine is.

I have shared most of the eight bottles I purchased on 8/20/12 and every person has loved this wine! While I will always agree that price of anything is too high. I, in no way, feel that I lost out on this wine. Unless you specifically know that this type of wine doesn't appeal to your taste buds, then you should at least order one (and then regret that you didn't order more when it arrives).

I wish I could find some commentary on this wine, as it does sound intriguing, and I do love a good Rosé. (Which begs the question, is this a good Rosé?)

I see that it's among several Rosés that just popped up on a 6-bottle deal on Invino. It's kind of a 6-Rosé grab-bag.

The more I think about Rosé, the more I have the impulse to buy this. Damn you, Woot!

Wine enthusiast gave the Grenache 83 points and noted some sourness and that it as was off-balance. Not a positive review.

Jennings notes leave something to be desired as well.
As much as I like both roses and Grenache,
I'll have to sleep on this one.

According to their scale it's not a "bad" showing.
80-84 -- Good. Solid wine, suitable for everyday consumption.

I brought two bottles of the Woot Cellars Pour Pour Me Fruit Bomber to a family BBQ this past weekend. The wine went quickly!!!! I'm in for 8 more!

Bought it last round but I've only opened the mutiny. I liked it a lot. Deep complex flavors, good tannins, dark fruit. A heavy wine that was good by itself. Was still good after sitting open for 2 days as well.

I opened this bottle with a bottle of ty caton merlot with a wine connoisseur friend of mine and we both preferred this bottle. the ty caton had an astringent quality that was odd.

Which Ty did you open?

Pour Pour Me
Well I bought a case during the last offering and have either drank or given away half of my case so far.

If you liked the F-Bomb from earlier in the summer this in my opinion this is the red equivalent from the same winery.

I am in for another case !

Hey everyone,
I just attempted to make my first woot purchase (the Blue Nomad Bright Light wine). Unfortunately, after placing the order I got the payment authorization denied page, however there is now $64.99 gone from my bank account!!! Has this happened to any of you? What is going on here???

edit: the order was still pending, so I called up my bank and had it removed (hopefully that would have happened anyway?). Is this a common occurence with woot though?

edit2: looks like I should have read the "what are my payment options"

Thanks,
Matt

I can't speak for woot, but from my experience on the vendor side of credit card companies "pending" charges usually drop off within 2-3 business days. I usually like to pay for my woot purchases using PayPal, which is linked to my bank account. A little bit faster when trying to make those speedy checkouts!


On an unrelated note... Any idea on when the fruit bombers might ship? I'm moving in 6 weeks and I'm getting to that point where I really should stop buying things online. But, if it's going to ship soon, I might as well pull the trigger!

It was the 2009 upper bench Merlot that was part of a red sampler sold on 6/26/12. I had bought it after reading so many good things about ty caton here on wine.woot and was very disappointed.

I just got my Fedex Ground tracking information and it is going to take 6 days to cross the country with my shipment.

What happened to "Summer Shipping" ?

I thought September 8th was still considered summer ?

Did anyone else receive their shipping via Fedex Ground ?

I'm not certain if the "Summer Shipping" still applies to these sales. Most regular wine shipments take 2-3 weeks for delivery.

If you're concerned with the status of your wine order, please feel free to email us at service@woot.com and we'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Sincerely,
Woot Staff
