This really reminds me of Essensia wine. Which can be bought in many stores for much less.

Not saying it's better or worse, just for those seeking a decent orange flavored wine.

Good company here:

First Sucker: mill
Last Wooter to Woot: rjquillin

Been waiting over a year for this.
Absolutely no brainer, sold out the entire stock in near record time last year of first release.
Unique Rose style, but not your parents sweet Rose, this has character and is a dry wine.
My CT notes: next time get max available.

Completely different thing. That is a dessert wine, this is an orange colored dry white wine.

In for 2 due to the overwhelmingly positive woot press this wine has got. The amount of wooters begging for this wine throughout the year really made this a buy even with the super high price. I don't think I've ever paid this much for a rose? so I'm really counting on the woot community to not steer me wrong.

If you don't like it, I'll take it off your hands and out of your cellar.

OK we were really on a SIWBM but this is the one we missed before that we really felt we had missed out on. I just hope it is a good as the Woot chit chat the last time (when it sold out by the time we had decided to try it).

Would anybody in the Twin Cities be willing to split? I really only want one bottle (but I could take two if you want to split down the middle). Feel free to send me a PM!

I've found we have similar tastes, so even though I am SOOOOOOO overstocked, I'm going to get an order of this. I'm not a fan of PN The Crusher, so I hope the Orange is more to my liking..

bottle looks to read 14.8%, but the specs say 13.6%; hoping for less heat!


[MOD: It's 13.6% per the specs.]

Yup, I know the feeling there also. Well, I'm not buying a set for myself so if you or anybody else wants to slough off a bottle in my direction I'm game. That's the only wine buying I'm allowed until we drink more space free.

Checking.

UPDATE: It is 13.6%. This is a new vintage and we didn't have samples so we photoshopped the 2011 on the bottle. We missed the ABV. Our dirty laundry has been aired. We are embarrassed.

I'm overflowing with wine so I'm essentially in a no-purchses period.

But I'd love 1 or 2 bottles of this. If anyone from DC or the close-in suburbs would like to sell/trade 1 or 2 bottles of this offering, count me in!

To clarify further: orange wine in this context is a white wine that has a heavier, orange hue, as it is fermented in a red style (partially on the skins).

Is this a woot exclusive offer again or will this wine be available in retail outlets, like in Ohio perhaps?

I was prepared for Ohio to be denied shipping for The Crusher Big Orange this year due to the growth of Don & Sons' business and our "stick in the mud legislators" but it still hurts a little. Sniff.

Dear Winery: Thanks for the intruiging wine - I am eager to try it. Not sure this is the proper place to ask, but woot tells me this is a winery thing, not a woot thing, so here goes: would you please not designate my order as "home delivery" when you prepare the Fed Ex info.? My shipping address includes a business name, but inexplicably, my last 2 wine woots have shipped via Fed Ex Home Delivery, which FE tells me may take until 8 pm to be delivered, and luckily I don't often work that late. I know I can (and have) re-direct to a pick up location, but that's just silly to me if it can be avoided through good communication. When there is a business name in an address, it seems obvious to me that "home delivery" is not the appropriate option. Can't understand why, after years of ordedring wine via woot, it now seems the wineries are using FE Home Delivery - maybe it's cheaper? I know two data points don't make a trend, but I'm wary now and fear every wine woot order I place will shiop this way. I'll deal no matter how you ship, but wanted to throw this out there in case it can make a difference. Thanks in advance for your customer service.

I think that is illegal, and the penalty is that the product must be given away to all wooters who comment. I look forward to receiving my free wine. Thanks.

As I am an unsophisticated wine wooter, please explain why Ohio can't get this, but I can get other wine woots? I really wanted to try this wine.

I believe each winery must have an agreement with any state it ships too, so sometimes OH will be on the list if the winery has jumped through the hoops. I recently had the same question as the wines I've ordered had participated with NH, and then I went to buy a different wine and was told they do not ship to NH. So it's not woot and it's not 'all or nothing.'

Here is another offering from this winery, and OH is not on the list. My assumption is that they have to pay a yearly fee to each state they ship to, and apparently the Buckeye State didn't make the cut :-(

What happened to Arizona? I ordered this last year, but this year AZ has been removed from the approved shipping list, this is a real bummer man!

Maybe it was a mistake that wineWOOT! can fix ASAP so I can order.......

Went in for one for this reason and the quick sellout last year too. Would prefer a split though if anyone else in NorCal (Bay Area) wants to split.

I believe it has something to do with the size of the winery and number of bottles sold per year for the Ohio legislation. If the winery sells over "x" number of bottles, they may not ship to Ohio. I could be completely wrong, but for some reason I recall something to that effect from when I lived in Ohio.
