This should go quick. Still have my bottles from the last time this was offered. Can't wait to try them, but I also need to wait as they should continue to evolve and improve.

There have been some impressive offerings in this woot off.

In for 2! I'm so glad this came up, I got the 05 and 06 as my first wine.woot a year or so ago and I've been dying to get more. I assume the 2007 vintage is as good or better. Is Mr. Wellington here to provide a comparison?

Have to agree. Already have half case, want more, need more room and funding.

Well done WD so far.

Holy moly Woot. SO good. The moths in my wallet have found a new place to live over the last day or so! Still happily working through my 2006's...but always nice to add some more of this to my collection!
Thank you!

A bit higher than the '06, but consistent with '05 and earlier '07 offerings.

Well, the price is high enough to stop me from buying another pair. I tried one from the last offering, and decided to put the other one away for a while. Good wine for sure, but it didn't blow me away enough.

This has been an expensive Woot-off thus far (fortunately?) I missed the 97 Ardente yesterday. I think I had a Pavlov reaction to Scott's Zins and bought another two today (then checked and found I had bought two in January). I guess you can never have too much Zin!

IMHO the 2007 is better than the 2005 & 2006. We had a lot of great components with which to work. Flavors and tannins are fully ripe at below 14% alcohol. This vintage has everything we want in a reserve wine: concentration and intensity, complexity, seamless balance. FWIW the upcoming issue of Wine Enthusiast gives it a 94 rating.

Co-sign. I had almost exactly the same experience (with the 2006 for me). Worth the price, but not a steal. I have one more bottle that I have high hopes for, as I have no doubt it will age well.

Already have two laid down, out of storage, love Wellington, love Victory Reserve...WHAT DO I DO??

Order another set and kill a baby by drinking one early for a total of 3 in the cellar? Yes, yes, I can find room for a bottle, can't I???

In for 1!

And kudos for the ingredients listed in specs; full transparency.

Can we just pick these up this weekend and save WD having to ship?

In again, curse you rpm, in a very good manner.

The 05's were $30 each, 06's $27.50. But that was the good old days of 2010 or so when people were poor and wine was cheap.

$40/bottle seems a little stiff, but I always miss the Victory offerings, so I'm in for a set.

I caved. Now my most expensive per-bottle Woot purchase. I have enjoyed all my Wellingtons and figured this would be a good reason to step into pricier bottles. Another mixed case offering wouldn't be unwelcome...

In my notes, I have drink now through 2022. However, I also note that 2017 - 2019 is probably ideal.

The decision of when to drink involves personal taste as well as the structure of the wine. We want Victory to be both ageworthy and approachable young. The 2005 is very nice now, but I have little doubt it will last and develop for at least another 5 to 7 years..

I think scores are pretty stupid. That being said, I'm glad you're getting recognized for your skills (finally) by things that others deem to be quite valuable. Congrats!!
