Sold out by Noon (CST)? Are you sure you counted the bottles correctly? Aren't there a few more cases somewhere?

Anyone in the Los Angeles area willing to get rid of a few bottles, I am willing to take any amount, 1-3 (or more, depending if someone wants to give up that much). Please PM if this is the case. Thanks

Glad I got in on this before lunch....

I still am mad about missing the mag of InZIN a few months back. This would have driven me mad to miss both.

Add a little residual sugar and the ph needs to be just a little lower to have the same ageability. So, this dry wine will age longer than the InZinerator, but not by much.



Scott,

Thanks for the informative post. I have some basic chemistry knowledge, but I guess I never made this particular connection (pH --> residual sugar --> ageability).

I learned something new today... I can go home!

pH isn't residual sugar. Your equation kind of looks like that. pH is the biggest factor of ageability. RS is a lesser component. In low levels, it makes the wine less ageable. In high levels (Sauternes), the wine can age for decades.

Dear Mr. Harvey, thank you for your generous offer, all the interesting facts about winemaking and the opportunity to "pick your brains" here on the Wine Woot forum!! Always an educational day for me, as well as picking up some delicious juice.
PS- Carla, you rock!!!

of all the reasons i've cursed work today, this is by far the most egregious - saw this morning first thing and started purchase, got pulled into conference calls... and when i returned i found the big stupid button un pushed.

i haven't had this vintage, but have purchased multi's of each of the previous.

only trot out on special occasions, with special folks.

Truly great stuff - Thank you Mr. Harvey, both for your participation and producing all this good juice

I second that. Spoke with both Scott and Carla. All set with wine coming soon. Carla even remembers me and my co-worker whose box we shipped to. What great people.

Glad I got in on this early and it was a great excuse to open a bottle of the 09 to go with my grilled pork tenderloin tonight. Drinking it now and loving it as always.

Don't you have enough.
Leave some space for other types of wines.

Fred is perhaps the most myopic wine drinker with whom I've interacted; he drinks CS and CS and occasionally Merlot.

myopic OK ....Is that Bad? I like what I like. Other reds are just too weak for me, I like dark hardy wine. Cab fits that bill.

Hey,

Sorry for off topic, but I received a bad couple of bottles on another woot a few months ago. I've sent at least 4 emails and still no satisfaction.

I have been a frequent purchaser on woot and have never had a problem, anyone care to give me any tips to help resolve this.

TIA

Sorry for the late reply, and to hear that you experienced issues communicating with Woot Member Services.

I'll forward your post onto Woot and let them know that you haven't heard a response. Thank you for your patience while they get the issue resolved.

I also recommend checking the spam folder of your email provider, as sometimes their email responses get filtered in there...

Drink what you like, I say, but it can be fun to expand your horizons little by little. Try venturing into Petite Sirah territory and you may never come back!

Hey thanks,

This has been going on since September and they respond to my initial email, and every time I have emailed since, but they have not followed up after the initial contact. I might even understand if I were a one time customer, or one who complains alot, but neither applies here, just check my previous purchases since 2005!

Maybe Woot doesn't care about me

Not bad at all! I think you're missing out on the aforementioned Petite Sirah, though. And you may like some of the heavier-styled zins like Turley.

Between Dark & Delicious and PS offerings here, yeah I'm all in for PS even if you do have to decant it for a day before you drink it. YUM!

Cross posting from Cyber-Pub

A couple of days ago we got a case of Scott Harvey Zin delivered. Scott and Carla took care of us in a "no ship" state and gave us the woot price and a good deal on shipping.

Alas, the wine had frozen. Five bottles had protruding corks, including some through the foil.

We got an immediate response to an e-mail. I don't think Carla could have taken off her jacket before she replied. They are going to replace it all. "Don't want to risk it". Though this time, we are smart and asked to hold shipping until March.

What great treatment!! First, when they went out of their way to offer us a great deal, and then to back up a weather caused problem so quickly. We actually felt bad that it got damaged after how well we were treated.

I know I don't expect this kind of treatment in general. It seems to be the norm for the regular winemakers that offer here. But I don't take it for granted.
