Expert Reviews

by Steve Heimoff
A little one dimensional, but it’s a polished wine that’s nice for drinking now. The ripe orange, tropical fruit, cashew butter and spice flavors are wrapped into a creamy texture.

sounds like a different flavor profile?

Peter,your wines constitute an auto-buy from my perspective. In for 3 but wish they would last a bit longer in the cellar...

Always wonderful to see your offerings in a place where so many would normally not have the opportunity to try your magnificent juice.

All the very best,

We have been in many wine libraries with no books, yet so very much to learn...

that's service! ... I would like to ask if my wife will like it. But, you do not know my wife.

So, I would like to know why a winery decides to put their product on Woot, from the wineries POV.

I will admit to repeat wine buys on Woot! of ones that I like ....

This was one of the 12 wine tasting I did for my wife's birthday and her friends. Went a little under the radar, but on reflection I really enjoyed it a lot. Was really well balanced - I feel the description here is fairly accurate.

Edit: and in for 2

I agree with most of his description. Roussanne does have a very seductive texture. "Tropical fruit" could mean a lot of different things, but I find our Rousssanne to be reminiscent of lychee and citrus with an intriguing floral aspect that can be almost decadent, like begonias.

Well, the primary reason (and the secondary reason if one exists) is to sell wine.

I picked up the '07 Victory and Karren Cab recently. I am setting the two Victorys/Victories? and cabs away for the foreseeable future. That leaves me with one Cabernet I would like to get into within a year.

What would be "ideal" in your opinion for decant time. Should I just have glasses over a few days and find out for myself, open it the night before intending to have it with dinner, anything? I don't care if I have to put it in a decanter for days if it would positively impact the wine.

Bought this deal ...

But now tell me the truth. I bet is is one of your computer-savy kids handling this techno marketing excursion, while you and the wifey are kicking it on the couch with TV shows.

(and yes, if you holler at the kid to see if I really bought, he can confirm it)

Was in Napa last week visiting friends. While there we took a quick trip over to Sonoma to visit the famous Wellington tasting room.
Great wines, fantastic folks.

I have two accounts- this 'anonymous' username for commenting, as well as a 'purchasing' account which is my real name. Apologies for the white box on the left.

Also, in the interest of full disclosure- I'm ITB, selling wine for a living. None of my wines have ever been featured on Woot though, so don't fear the shilling.

Peter this is a wonderful bottle. Got one in a club shipment, and wasn't sure what it was. PnP and and both SWMBO I were believers. Very easy to polish off a bottle and not even realize it. Grabbed two woots last time it was up.
Thanks, and sorry we missed you after D&D.

Please don't put it in a decanter for days! Whether to decant and for how long isn't a straightforward proposition. A couple of qualifying variables are with what food? and your taste experience / preferences.
I had the '07 Karren with dinner a couple of weeks ago, and enjoyed the way it opened up and developed during the course of the meal. If you're in the practice of decanting I'd say half an hour to an hour, with some splashing as you pour.

This is delightful; and so nice to see here because I just gave my daughter my last bottle!

Both my daughters involvement in the tech world is pretty much limited to social media & music.

Wifey is hiking in Utah.

I'm getting ready to start dinner for one daughter & myself.

AND crack open a bottle of an old Cabernet from before my entry into winemaking.

If it comes by the 30th, I'll bring you 2 ($35). If not, I can hold them until later or drink them myself...

Cheers Mr. Wellington!

Peter, I remember a couple years ago you dug out either a bottle of this or your Marsanne and were surprised by how well it had aged. Do you remember the specifics of what I'm talking about? These will likely be consumed this summer, but what do you think about longevity?

I think you need a long track record with any given vineyard(s) to gaurantee ageability, but Roussanne does seem to have a surprising capacity to age well.

I won't do days (and never have!), but reading these forums I am definitely in the practice of decanting. I am almost afraid to pop and pour a bottle of anything due to how many people love cellaring wooted bottles and immediately ask drinking windows. Add to that the wine--although you said it was most approachable of the recent Karren cabs--is usually meant to age and I was thinking I needed to really give it time.

Thanks. I will get to it in a few months and not over decant. Since I never got to try one of your Roussannes, I bit on this offering. Speaking of why I did not, how long should I keep one of the mistakenly-shipped 2009 Marsannes to get that aged honey notes you mentioned that it can take on.

Edit: I took my sweet time writing that, and there was already a mention of Marsanne.

Again, the tricky aspect of predicting ageability and development. I would guess (and it is a guess) the 2009 Marsanne might be in that zone within a year or so.
