Hey woot looks like your MSRP is off just tiny bit. The shipping from Tyler Florence is a flat $5. So if you order 4 bottles you pay just $5.

Really? Yet another "celebrity" chef product? An other "celebrity" tacking his name on a bottle of wine so we can be charged more and overpay relative to an equivalent bottle of wine. And to boot, Tyler Florence is such a minor, inconsequential "celebrity". yeahhhhhhhh. So yeahhhhhhhh -- but I'm sure he's laughing all the way to bank.

The label is pretty terrible with the fake cursive writing trying to make it seem like a small handcrafted and labeled wine.

Amazing how they could print out labels with the blend # and alcohol percentage and yet needed the Celeb Chef Tyler to write in the rest. Even though his logo is on the label, I am sure glad he also added his signature in the Approved box.

From the description it sounds like these wines may actually be produced by Michael Mondavi. I've enjoyed the wines I've tried from Michael/Rob Mondavi in the past.

Exactly the reason why Tyler Florence's name shouldn't be anywhere near this wine.

Tyler: Hey Bob, want to make some wine and slap my name on it so you can charge a couple of extra bucks?

Bob: Sure, but only if we make the label give the appearance of you actually having something to do with the wine. I could use the extra money.

Tyler: Done.

I'm always interested in a SauvBlanc, but then I saw Tyler Florence's name on it and the hokey "signature" and "approval" on the label. C'mon, Woot...we're not that gullible. Easy pass.

Looking at the statistics, Woot is simply listening to its customers. Since the last woot off there have been 16 items offered, 13 of those were wines.

The breakdown is so:
Red:4
White:5
Rose:1
Sparkler:2
Mix:1

Comparing just the reds and whites:
Average red: bottom 37% of wine woots
Top red: Top 49% of wine woots

Average white: top 33% of wine woots
Bottom white: bottom 50% of wine woots

The BEST red sale recently was barely better than the worst white sale. It is smart business having more whites at the moment.

I am a red drinker primarily but often feel that woot posts too few whites. I'm glad to see a few more here.

2014 - 20 Btl. Fjellene (10 bot), Urraca Chard (10 bot)
Last purchase: 5/3/14

2013 - 75 btl. 2012 - 98 btl. 2011 - 112 btl. 2010 - 30 btl.

I don't understand this statement -
"C'mon, Woot...we're not that gullible."
Why are you assuming that someone at woot thinks you (or anyone else) is gullible by offering this wine?
Do you have tasting notes that show it's not worth the money?
Is there something wrong with this wine that we should know about?
I personally think most TV chef's are dorks and a half, but if the wine is good, who cares?
Can someone submit a comment with some substance?
WS rating - 88
WE rating - 87

16 bucks each with shipping for a Napa SB is not unreasonable.

I woke this morning and found a bottle of 2010 Tyler Florence Blend #4 Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley under my very dry frasier fur Christmas tree.

I decided not to try it until next year.

Price has also been a factor(for me anyway). Many of the reds offered lately have been in the $20-$30 range or more, while many of the whites have been less pricey. As soon as I see a case or half case of any decent reds in my price range...I'll be in for sure.

I have to say I appreciate the white offerings because I found it is a LOT easier to get into trouble buying quality red here than white (and also because the Wife likes white more than most red wine!)

I care more about the wine, and the wine MAKER, than the name on the bottle, so any more tasting notes would be welcome!

David, you know I never shy away from saying what I mean.

I don't come to woot for "pretty good wine for the price". I get it, it is hard to have great wine at great prices and be able to fill all of the offer slots available. I definitely see a trend with Friday-Sunday being very lackluster offerings and participation even worse. (and at least for me, months of rather un-inspiring Plus offerings)

I'm sure plenty of people are buying these and other offerings, or else they would not be offered. But the community thrives on great deals from great, or even unknown, winemakers and small producers who are willing to come on here and participate in discussions; something that seems to often be lacking.

Like cmaldoon, I appreciate that Woot is offering more whites. Next, i hope they offer more wines that one can get with shipping under $50. As a college student who likes wine, but is perennially broke, as many college students often are, the average price of Woot wines keep me away - something true559 has alluded to. And yea, I really know nothing about wines and most of the tasting notes use terminology that go way over my head. Still they are helpful because I simply try to see if many people speak highly of the wine before I purchase.

I agree with half of this and disagree with the other half. The winery participation hasn't been what it used to be. That makes me sad. The reasons are likely varied, but I'd like to see this change back to the old days.

On the other hand, I think that reality needs to be addressed. I've noticed a trend, on this forum and another, of people commenting about the decrease in deal quality, i.e.: how much of a deal we're getting. Luckily, we all weren't rocked by the recession. Sorry for the assumption, but if you were, you're not dropping dollars on wine in any price range above a box. Since we weren't hurt by the recession, we reaped its benefits; we got awesome prices on awesome juice. That ships sailing is coming to an end. Bittersweet, indeed. But those are the facts. And before some dumb a** jumps in with the "I don't know where you live, but my recession is still going" comment, yes, the economy is improving. The deals won't be as great as they once were because of that. This applies to all wine sites, nto just wine.woot.

As long as wine.woot will beat any price -- widely available ( to preempt more dumb a** comments), I'll buy wines I want. I'm not buying this one.

By the way, since when do we give a s*** about labels? Really? Numbers look solid. Price is competitive with other Napa SBs.

Somebody might have made this point already but it is hard to tell with all the sword fighting going on in this discussion - The value of the wine in my eyes is based off the original price and not what I'm paying here or at any other discount site. I don't come here to buy a wine for $10 dollars a bottle that is going to taste like a $10 bottle of wine. I have enough of those to choose from at my local establishments.

To me, I want to come to woot for a wine that is worth the retail price, but get it for lower. So today, my question would be, is this SB worth $22, not $16. If it is, I'm getting a deal here. If not, I know a lot of good $10-$15 SB that I can get right around the corner.

Someone is probably going to say that there are wines offered here that are hard to find. That is great if they are valued at the retail price, otherwise it's not a deal to me and I'll just buy a wine I really like at regular price.

I have to agree with you... when do we care about labels? I do miss the winery participation... I have purchased MANY a wine that I would have never considered before. .... But, due to a winemakers comments and/or others opinions, here on the board, I have been extremely happy with my purchases....I won't kid you, I do love a good bargain, but to me, it is really fun to try new wines that I can't find at my local wine store.... I feel some here are obsessing on the "discount" they are getting...not the fact that some wines, we get first crack at... or the winemaker has confidence enough to offer their stuff to us to see what we think... I would like to see less whining and more wine ing !!
I am going to pass on this offer, not because of the label or who's name is on it (I do like Tyler), but because I am mostly a red drinker.....

I enjoy a well crafted Sauvignon Blanc, but not typically the grape fruit bombs coming from Napa Valley, just not my style. Much more into the floral, tropical and stone fruit style. Stylistically, French vs Auzzie.
