In for 3. Never been disappointed by El Jefe's wine.

Had some Twisted Oak a few years ago - liked it a lot. Unfortunately, thanks to buzzkill stick-in-the-mud legislators, they don't ship to my state...

I have yet to be disappointed by Twisted Oak offerings from Woot, either from taste or value. Always an autobuy.

NJ. Direct shipping is legal (with limits), but not from Twisted Oak, apparently. Sad face.

Yes, sad face. We were all excited about getting NJ legal and then they threw a huge corporate tax in our face. Hopefully that will get fixed soon.

long time wooter, potential first time wine-wooter. I want this, but woot recommends shipping to a business address. I live in a state that permits booze shipments, but work in one that does not. What do you users say? do you have things shipped to your home with confidence?

I really should drink some of the Twisted Oak I have to see if I should start buying more or not (I basically haven't because I figure the answer will be yes, and I don't have the money and space for more yeses).

El Jefe, how is the 2007 Tanner Syrah drinking now, and how would you compare that the cockamamie syrah being offered here?

Yes, they only recommend shipping to a business address because then you will be guarenteed to have someone there to sign for the package. Since it is wine, someone over 21 has to be there to sign for the package. You can always have the package redirected to the nearest fed-ex store once it is shipped if you won't be home to sign for and receive it.

I have mine shipped to my home, but after I get the shipping notification from Woot, I go to the FedEx.com tracking site and change the delivery to hold the box at the FedEx location nearest my house. Then, I pick it up on my way home from work. It's super convenient.

2010 *%#&@! is currently $18, 2009 River of Skulls is $35, & 2009 "Cockamamie" Syrah is $19 on the TO website. TO offers flat rate shipping, so $18 for ground & $35 for 2-day shipping.

So including Sales Tax ($5.22 for me) and the $18 shipping brings the total to $95.22 if I bought direct from TO.


Factoring in discounts based on % of costs ... Values to use for CT (1/2/3 sets):


2010 *%#&@! = $15.00 / $14.37 / $14.16
2009 River of Skulls = $29.16 / $27.95 / $27.54
2009 "Cockamamie" Syrah = $15.83 / $15.17 / $14.95

I expect River of Skulls to develop for several years. The other two wines under screwcaps - er, twist offs - we have no real experience with that. Both wines are more targeted to drink now markets, but both wines in the past have held up and developed well. The *%#&@! and Syrah have both been great for 8+ years from vintage with cork closures.

I confess I haven't popped the 2007 Tanner in a while. Our vineyard designated Tanners enjoy a higher quality oak program than the entry level Syrah (which is what the 2009 is). That's the main difference.

Per the Wine.Woot FAQ:
bHow long is shipment going to take?

You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.

If you're still concerned with your order, please feel free to email us at support@woot.com and we'll be glad to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Sincerely,
Woot Staff
