I was about to break my promise of noting buying any more wine for a while when I slapped with taxes.

Since when do we pay taxes? I've never paid taxes on Wellington orders in the past.

Yes you did. You just didn't know it because it was buried in the cost.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

I nearly made it through the whole woot-off, but I'm such a sucker for Wellington...

Ah, SWMBO and I have been on a big Port kick of late. Which makes this an easy one to get post-facto approval for. Really, the only other thing that would be this easy is if Scott Harvey went up with something...

Do you're telling me they have reduced the price of the deal by $5 to cover the taxes? I doubt that.

Perfect for pairing with those Candy Basket chocolate covered cherries you just bought!

For me, passing on this is an equally perfect pairing for having passed on the cherries.

Ugh, I was planning on making it through 2 full days of a woot off without making a purchase. Then I saw this and realized I am going to be a complete failure. Just made my purchase, thanks as always Peter.

Haven't been buying any wine for the past few weeks... There's been a policy change?

If you compare deals, before and after separate tax (exact deals) they have reduced the price now that tax is billed at individual state rates instead of a blanket tax for all.

Well, there are a lot of people who say "I don't like Port", and when they're in the tasting room and try it they actually do like it, but we haven't developed cyber tasting yet.

I've been really good at saying no, but can't pass up Peter's fine offerings. Bummed I missed the Roussanne last night! In for two. Dad's 80th is coming up. This will make a nice addition to his birthday basket of goodies (Brandini toffee, Salted Caramel Pecan Patties, etc.).
Cheers!

I never had port before so I dont know if I like it. Should I have this as my first or should I first try a local bottle?

Well I don't want to miss out on this great juice, so I'll just jump on it and leave the comparisons for future deals.

Thanks for letting me know what's going on.

Was trying to be good on Day 2 - but on the positive side, now have free shipping for the rest of the day.

Don't blame you, tax or not, great deal. Came to about 17.95 ea for me. Tempted to go in on another, both me and the wife love some well made port!

Thanks Peter!

I've not tried them, but Wellington is a very reliable winery that's likely to be an excellent first try at just about anything.

Mr. Wellington, how long will these age?

A long time - they should still be enjoyable, albeit different, 20 years from vintage.

didn't find any place that sells the 2007 including Wellington's own shops.

I never ask this, but went in for three so wondering how long I can sit on these at proper cellar temp and humidity? Is this good for 3+years or does anyone have an idea?

TIA,

This is the first time the 2007 has ever been available, so this offering gets a third of a rocket ship or pope's miter.

It figures I would ask the question while it was being answered! Thanks, Peter and have gone for 3 on both your offerings. Great stuff, just finished a Taylor Fladgate Tawny so perfect timing.

I had really old Ports before (including a bottle I forgot somewhere in the basement after a move)... they will change very much, but will be enjoyable.

$19.67 here... Same price paid for '03/'06 previously, that also included shipping.

if I assume that the 2007 will also go for $25 at least, then the math is
$40 for the 2003, + $25 for the 2006 and $25 for the 2007 = $90 plus tax and shipping - so $49.99 plus tax and max $5 shipping - good deal here.

Thought I was going to be good and make it through a woot off with no purchases. I was wrong.
