While this is typically used in a sarcastic way, I'm using it for its instructive value. No offense intended to anybody here:

This is the Barbera you want. As an added note, the family (sis & her family, me and my son) tasted Scott's Red vs White (Reserve) Barberas last year, and my nephews and nieces liked the Red label more than the White. Sis, my BiL, and I liked the White label more.

We enjoyed both of them immensely. As did our waitress (we shared them with her, and there was no corkage added!).

Agreed, the last round of this arrived last week and the wife and I very much enjoyed the first bottle. Glad I can double down on this one since I gave one bottle away...

Totally agree. While the presence of a "reserve" label usually prevents me from buying the non-reserve because I don't want the leavings of what wasn't good enough to make the cut, in the case of scott's wines the mountain selection is a great deal that's priced fairly. It's really just a touch below the reserve and even that depends on your palate. Plus, Scott and Jana are great to random winos at their tasting room.

Will there be any measures to protect today's orders against excessive heat when en route to SoCal? It's the time of year when it can get hot, especially during the drive through the San Joaquin Valley, where it's in the 90's as I write this.

I would be happy to be of assistance. If you will route your delivery through Atlanta, I will sample a few bottles... to be sure they are sound. When the weather becomes more pleasant in the valley, I will send what's left. PM me and I will provide delivery instructions. Rest assured, the weather is just perfect here ;)

Was ready to pull the trigger when I saw this and thought "Yikes! I'm in Florida. Should I be worried about this too?" Started ordering during cold weather months and hadn't really crossed my mind.

Any help?

They seem to be shipping much faster lately, I ordered the RBW Red Blend on May 18th and the Bear Cave Cellars on the May 19th & BOTH have shipped. Thats MUCH faster that usual.

I was not satisfied with tjhoulihan's offer of "assistance". I found this in the FAQs:

What about shipping during the summer months? How do I know my wine won't get damaged in the heat?
Because during the summer months, your wine will be shipped with special precautions to keep it in peak drinking condition, whether that means logistical wizardry, faster delivery, refrigerated shipping, or some combination of all three. Wine Country Connect has been helping wineries get their products to consumers come heat, humidity, or dust storm for years now. Just chill. They got this.



In for one climate-controlled shipment to Florida!

But "Summer" in the past (as I recall) was defined as commencing June 1. A lot has changed since then, however.

This is good stuff. The 06 was amazing (about 22% syrah to this 15%) so I think this should be even better.

The 07 was ruined with 1% port but Scott's got over that particular affliction now 8)

Yes the White label 100% Barberas are even purer and tighter, but these are punchy, bright and lively wines and very worth it.

Hi Everyone,
Sorry I didn't get on soon enough. Hope you'all enjoy the wine. Wine Drew and I are just setting down some woot cheese and a bottle of this wine.
Cheers

Thanks for posting (even if it sold out before you jumped in). Have been hearing wonderful things about your wines since following wine.woot for about 4 months. Bought my first today and am very much looking forward to trying it!
Cheers to you too!
