Only $2 less than the previous offer, that won't make up for the sales tax. However, it's still a nice discount if you compare the cost of 2 of these 375s (approx. $33 with tax & shipping) vs the CT average price for one of the 750s (around $50).

Was in on previous offer and did not regret it. Both vintages are quite good, with the edge going to the 07. It is apparent from the first swish of the glass and sniff of the nose that this is good juice. Those half bottles come in handy when you need two nice glasses and no more, although you may well be tempted to pop a second. Trying to decide whether it will be one or two this time.

I would order but WOOT has become ridiculously slow in shipping. I ordered wine back on 3/29 that has yet to ship. I guess they are trying to age the wine a year or so more before you receive it.

Wine shipments take a bit longer than shipments from our other sites. Allow at least 2-3 weeks.

The FAQ:

How long is shipment going to take?
You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.

The adorability level on these is high, and I have enjoyed Hendry Zin.
These are perfect for those with pregnant significant others, imo.

I love seeing half bottles on woot. Makes it easy when I am the only one that wants some juice with my meal.

For me the shipments have sped up, not slowed down. It used to take 3 weeks for me to receive my orders in Ohio, now it takes 2 weeks for most of them.

You're just not ordering frequently enough, or you'd be getting deliveries every week to keep you busy and wouldn't have this current excuse.

between 4pm and 10pm works for me. Any later than that and I tend to get a hangover.

I think 3:30PM start time is acceptable on weekends.

+1
And I think 1/2 bottles are perfect on the weekend after the wife & I have had a bottle and may want just a little more given the early start time. I bought the Hendry Zins when offered on woot and they were excellent for the price (hopefully that carries over to the cab). So this is an easy buy since 1/2 bottles are not offered very often. The price is higher relative to a regular bottle due to additional cost of bottling, etc.

I'm not buying this deal, though I'd like to, but I do want to say that I really like half-bottle offers. They don't come around too often, but they are great to have around and I'd love to see more of them.

Hi mj71! These half bottle will need to be drunk sooner that their 750ml mates. George's 750ml hold up 10-15 years. So I would half that for the 375ml. Drink now a year.

I'd be in for 2 or 3, if only I did not live in Virginia (where woot can no longer ship). Hendry wines are excellent, as is the half bottle format.

I haven't even tried the zins from forever ago. FWIW, I'd be in if I weren't being threatened by SWMBO.

Sadly, no help here. And I've got my Ar as a worthy stand-in for those sipper bottles.

Two years ago I picked up the Hendry Wines Estate 2007 Napa Valley Zinfandel - 4 Pack
$59.99 here and I thought the Zin's were very good (still have two left). I've not tried their cabs, but if there as well made as their Zin, they should be very good.

I love the half bottle as I am the only red drinker in my family but I need these to be a bit cheaper to take the plunge.
