Fred, I think you need another case.

This was also in the side sale a few days ago. I ordered one then; it's really good, especially at this price.

What's the shelf life on this stuff? I have some but my parents liked it, but a case is a lot of wine for them.

Low alc., moderate pH. It should last for at least a couple more years.

***checks previous deal from the other day of Tasi for reviews***

Edit - Ok, good reviews sold me...I'm in for at least one, a little time left if I want more.

Just finished a bottle of this tonight on day 3! I like this bottle for a "I don't feel guilty opening this" kind of night. The third day isn't the best but drinkable. Day 1 and 2 are good. It's light, a little sweet and fruity. Pretty light for a merlot actually. At this price, it's great!

I have ordered this a couple of times. Just do it. If you don't like it give it as a hostess gift to anyone who will have you

From the August comments (below): I never did understand what Scott meant by wine 'talking to you.' Any help here?

Thanks.

Mega Red, huh? Who would have known! I learn something new on here all the time! Is this addition why some wines literally remind me of Welch's juice, feel syrupy, etc.? I wonder if Scott regrets his posting since it has openned (it seems) a "small" can of worms?

(from Scott Harvey)
It is a can of worms I want the consumer to be able to look for and understand, because it tends to produce wines that no longer have the ability to talk to you. I want people to look for wines that do talk to you like this Tasi Merlot does.

Been waiting for this one all day, since the last case was a huge hit with the wife and friends. In for two!

Ordered one, then came back and snagged another. A very good "anyday" wine, especially at this price.

This one item has made the entire wootoff worth wooting for.

Props to jchasma on your self control. I have never concerned myself with how a wine would be on day 3. For that very reason I am looking for good vaule. This wine is one.

Anyone know if this is a 2 day woot.off or if we will be deprived of sleep for another night?

You never know. Three day Woot-Offs are not very common but based on the pace/flow of this it could be one of those events. Nothing exciting so far. I hope there is one more day.

Yes, I poured mine down the drain (at least what I didn't waste on Sangria). I typically respect and agree with Scott Harvey on these boards, but this Tasi Merlot is the worst purchase I've ever made on woot. As others have pointed out, it's light for a merlot and a little sweet, but it lacks depth of flavor or subtlety. I'm not sure what else to say about this one since it was so void of anything other than off/chemical flavors with the light sweetness.

I try to be more descriptive about how a wine tastes, but each bottle I tasted of this had the same off flavors that didn't closely resemble well made (or even passable) wine.

The Sangria turned out great!

Humm, I felt this was a so-so Merlot, made acceptable only by its price. When I saw it, my first thought was "gee, fourth time it's been offered on Woot, they must've bought a tankerful of it." My next thought was "so much for the Woot-off, this will take hours to sell out." Now if only they'd put up the Tasi Cab, I'd be in for a case for sure! (hint, hint)
