The Scott Harvey selection was made for me! I love the reserve Barbera, it's one of the best wines made in California, and by far the best US Barbera I've ever had and his mountain selection Syrah is a gread crowd-pleaser, and delicious with a winter lamb stew! Do you still portify it Scott?
The Mountain Selection Barbera 06 I loved too, eing very zingy, but I thought the 07 too heavy. How is this one Scott, and how does it compare in ingredients and flavour?

I still have two or three Anderson Valley Tudors from my order when this came up a while back. Outstanding, and almost as good as the Inspiration pinots noirs. Very highly recommended, and it's $40-45 retail, so at $30 it's a pretty good deal, if not woot's best.

Really nice selection! I love the Inspiration wines (have tried all of those, all terrific), the Scott Harvey is great, and I am intrigued to try the Pacific Rim Riesling Variety 6-Pack, would love to try that Riesling bubbly (fun hot tub drink)!!!

Greetings wine.wooters! Dan Tudor here. We've released some of the library stash for the holidays. (only because we love the guys at WOOT and need to pay for all the stuff my girlfriend is buying from their other woot offerings!)

These two 06's are drinking incredibly. Blind taste them next to any grand cru burgs of the same age and I'll bet you prefer the Tudors. They really show how CA pinot can age if made with the correct balance, acid, etc. Let me know if you have any questions

Thank you for the support! Current Retail price is $55/btl on these two wines.

Hi everyone - Jon here from Inspiration... This will likely be the last offering for these whites. We're almost out at the winery and this ENTIRE selection are ALL tasting great!

For those of you who like a “less than traditional Turkey day”, try our Viognier with Venison Chili… otherwise, our Sauv Blanc & our Chardonnay will pair nicely with all of you TurDucken fans… ;) A big thank you to the woot community for your support!

Thank you very much - I think this entire line-up (everyone elses wine too!) for TG is awesome!

Hello Everyone! Thomas here from Pacific Rim Winery. If you haven't a chance to try our single vineyard dry rieslings(Solstice, Wallula) or A dry riesling - you are in for a real thanksgiving treat! These wines are elegant and nuanced with an abundance of flavor.


The Sparklers are also a playful take on the German Sekt style of wines, and just plain fun.

Riesling in all its amagalmations is perfect for the holidays. Hope you enjoy!

I know the deal about individual wineries and state shipping, but I have to take this opportunity to say how incredibly disappointed I am that there is no shipping to VA for these offers.

Read yesterday's main offering thread (Boomtown). You may be disappointed for awhile.

Wanted to point out a typo/editorial error on the Sauv Blanc write-up...
"On the pallet, flavors of grapefruit, grass and just a hint of oak that’s accentuated by a balanced tartness."

I think y'all mean palate, unless you're tasting them on a flat thing in a warehouse?

Geez, thanks for the sad info! I had no idea and have been wondering why VA hasn't been in the recent offerings. Hope winedavid can work quickly on this and I appreciate his efforts.

Even though my state prevents me from taking advantage of the Inspration selections, I just want to comment on how delicious these wines are from my past experience! I am jealous of all you who are able to buy.

Scott, I want to buy your wines so badly from woot!, but they never ship to MA, RI, or CT anymore. To be fair, I don't think Massachusetts or Rhode Island have EVER had shipping on woot!, but CT has in the past! I will continue to rage against silly laws that keep me from drinking more of your wonderful wines...

Per Scott on his 10/22 offering of Jana Old Vine Zin:

"We have no plans to add either CT or Maryland. The cost if the license is to great for the amount of wine we sell there. Call the winery and we'll see what we can do to ship it through a third party shipper. The winery number is 707 968-9575 and ask for Jana"

Hey all - just thought I'd also mention it here and I'll leave a post on the broader board - I'm coming to Illinois on Friday for my Fall Road Trip. I'd love to see all of you wooters there while I'm on the road. I should have my updated itin up on the website by tomorrow morning.

I think the Gazzi Estate Syrah offered on here last spring was also a Scott Harvey that I got on here and I still have 1 bottle stashed because it is so good when the last bottle is gone I will cry.

the gazzi was good but variable, being old. One was ok, one good, one excellent, but my last bottle was off, sadly! But then they're 8-year-old Pinots.

Yeah I am in for 2 of this order, I'll bring a couple of these to thanksgiving and offer the last bottle of the gazzi I have as I saw someone say they thought the bottle was slightly out of its drinking prime for a bottle they uncorked in sept.
