It may be a screwy top, but the numbers on this look compelling.
Do I really care about LIVE/Salmon Safe Certification?

Hoping we'll have some tasting notes on this one.

I have no idea whether you do or not. Glad we had this chat.

From someone who could care less about salmon, I say you should not care about salmon or the certifications that they give out for not peeing in their pool.

Fair enough. Apathetic, at best, but fair.

If you DO care about environmental issues, the certs are actually pretty important up here. But it has zero effect on the flavor or quality of the wine, it's more of a "vote with your dollar" type of thing I suppose.

sorry to say I saw a rating of less than 82. Even if that's wrong and the rating is actually 86 or 87... I still don't think it's worth the money.

Normally that would be enough to spook me, but there are only two ratings. The guy with the 86 has 845 tasting notes and the guy who gave it a 77 has 14. This isn't scientific but I'm inclined to discount the second rating.

So I'm on the fence, waiting on something to push me one way or the other...

S/He also gave the classic "I don't understand willamette pinot" response, while another reviewer comments on the intensity of the flavor... so at least one of them is clueless.

The type of cork or bottle closure should be listed in the specs of every Woot wine.

Points are stupid, especially when they come from a person whose palate you have no understanding of. And yes; I'm ending my sentence with a preposition.

That is because a Fez always gives a person an air of prestige, not to mention the "popped collar" always adds some je ne sais quoi.

Points in general are stupid, cellartracker points even more so. CT has tons of amazing features and benefits, but using a 100 point scale is not one of them. The three reviews on CT are marginally helpful, if at all, because they don't tell you a whole lot about the actual wine. The real power of CT reviews comes from 15+ that have actual descriptions of the wine. Then you can actually get the information to decide if a wine is something *you* are likely to enjoy.

Of course, if you prefer to only buy anything with 85+ points then that's fine too.

Usually you can tell this by looking at the picture. This one is a prime example.

I don't think I've ever seen this many comments on a wine and nothing about the wine yet. I look to others to influence me....I'm ok with screwy too.

So, this stuff go well with Snikers or Nacho Doritos? (kidding, but I really do like to read good feedback on the wine)

Well the wine is very good with salmon in particular. This is a blended wine from several different vineyards across Willamette Valley, all farmed by the owners of WCWW. A true vintage expression of Pinot from WV, bing cherry, a touch of cinnamon and holiday spice with a light touch of oak. Easy to drink now, I'd give this wine a 5 year drinking window.
