From the winery: this wine was awarded bronze meal for $35+ zins inthe 2012 SF Chronicle Wine Comp at $18.75 not a bad deal. The SF Wine Comp is the largest comp of American wines in the world...

Pretty good 3rd party endorsement...

NOTE: No Nickelback was played at any time during the tasting of this wine.[/quote]

Let's just say, for the sake of our friendship, I hope I am reading this incorrectly.



Nickleback is the instantly approachable pop vs. Radiohead's music, which may take some effort to fully appreciate.

Just sayin' you should have All The Right Reasons for buying a wine unless you Gotta Be Somebody or a Rockstar.

What I mean by that is.... like 'em or not, there is no denying the popularity that Nickleback has enjoyed over the last decade.

They are like the Apothic Red or Menage a Trois of the rock world.

I just had a shipment arrive via FedEx Ground that took 7 days via ground from the west coast to the east coast.

My purchase was from 09/08/12 and it is still very hot down here in the southeast.



We really do time the release of the wines to optimize movment and temperature control. The wines you received should be just fine. if not, please do contact service@woot.com.

thanks,
