What? I got 2 sets of this wine a week ago and no gift bags. Spent the weekend looking for the right gift bags. Oh well my recipients will just have to live without the official Woot gift bags...

Same price, but with 4 free gift bags. Score

2011 Phat Goose

PnP

Color: Magenta, medium color concentration.
Nose: Sweet blueberry, blackberry and sweet spice; cardamon and star anise.
Palate: Ripe raspberry, cherry and plum. Some of the sweet spice from the nose carries to the finish. Very light tannin.

30 minutes in, the nose is similar but has gained intensity.

1 hour in, a floral aspect appeared in the nose. Rose or lavender.

I enjoyed this wine with Chinese food; spicy shrimp and broccoli, sweet and sour pork, fried shrimp and chicken chow mein. The ripeness of the wine paired very well with the spiciness of the shrimp. The acidity definitely cut through the fatty food, no problem. A great food wine!

I really enjoyed this wine. It's a nice, easy-drinking GSM. Click on the previous offer link in Cesare's post for lots of tasting notes, including my own.

Did something change? On the http://woot.wikia.com/wiki/Wine.woot wiki it says shipping is allowed to this state. Is this because it is close to the holidays it automatically rejects my request??

The wineries ship the product sold on wine.woot. To ship into a state, each winery must have a license within each state. Most can't ship into MA. Here's more information explaining why.

I, for one, am a little disappointed to see this show up a week after the initial sale with additional gift bags thrown in...

I'm guessing that the sales were not as robust as hoped for, so the deal was sweetened. I'm partly to blame for that. I usually max out on the woot holiday label wines and gift them all over, but this year's offering was not up to the previous high bar. The wine has always been pretty good and is probably good this time. The label ... not ...

I am usually a go on Woot Xmas time offerings because the labels are fun and make a fun gift. EHP, Blitzen, Twas, all good labels....but Phat Goose? Not something I want to give out

I just had one on Saturday evening and here's hoping it improves with time. It tasted really young with next to zero finish. I will have no problem letting them rest in the cellar. I wouldn't gift these until next year for fear the recipient would open it too soon.

To be fair, the Twas is drinking awesome in my opinion, so maybe this has a chance down the road.

What if they threw in a Swatch watch instead of the gift bags?

Is there anyway to postpone the shipment of the wine if we might not be home during the time that it is supposed to arrive?

Will the 5$ all you can ship deal not apply to my wine.woot! purchase if I upgraded to 2-day shipping on my Woot! order?

How long will you be gone? The only real option is to redirect it to your nearest fed ex store, but they will only hold it for you for 5 days.

After the third failed delivery attempt you have some days to give them instructions what to do - in my case it was only 2 days before, until then you can still request the redirect, which can give you up to 3 (first three delivery attempts) + 2 (how long they wait before sending it back) + 5 days (hold in local FedEx store) = 10 days in total.

Although if you ask nicely they might hold it longer.

So I am hoping someone on staff will see this. I bought this last time around and had to run out and of course missed the delivery of my Phat Goose. I thought they made 3 attempts, but apparently only one. Anyhow, I was wondering what the protocol is, as I still want the wine. If they are going to refund me, I would like to re-buy it now, as I get all of the holiday offerings. (I agree, the Twas is drinking very well right now, and the Blitzen is better this year too).

Anyone who can help me? I have sent out two requests to support. The first was confirmed they received, but no answer, the second has yet to be received. Would really like to know soon, before this offering is gone.....

Thanks,

FedEx is definitely supposed to attempt delivery 3 times.

Call FedEx and give them the info for the delivery, and tell them that a second and third delivery attempt was not made and that it's been 2-3 days since the initial attempt. They'll either schedule a new delivery or you can have them deliver to a local FedEx/kinkos and you can pick it up,
