Last Wooter to Woot:

Last Purchase:
a few seconds ago

It's a great every day drinker. Basically an auto buy because of the QPR. This means I can drink up my remaining bottles from the last woot.

You looking for wine for a 100 person wedding? Maybe we could get you signed bottles, well just for the "head" table or so. Once Suzy signed over six cases of Noceto Sangiovese for a customer. (My handwriting is really bad -- got C's or "below average" in school.
We used the 2005 Noceto Sangiovese at our son's wedding five years ago. We did a trial with all our wines, and it was the clear winner. So, the earlier poster asking about the 2005, I haven't tried it lately, but it should be doing very well. But, I'd not suggest waiting until it's 20 years old.

MalMc,
See my note a couple minutes ago. 2005 should be doing very well right now. Probably not a lengthy ager, as 2005 was a little heavy due to the heavy rainfall the prior winter.

Whoops, the wine was not as extracted due to the heavy rain.

Took one for the team and opened the 2009 I had from a prior offering (this is auto buy for me). My wife and I loved it.

You have a PM.

Also, only a few hours left... Anyone on the fence, get in! This really is that good and the price won't make you feel guilty for popping it on a casual weeknight.

This is a wine I seriously misunderestimated at first. It can seem austere without enough air, when young (like 4 years old). But it's really really tasty, and opens up nicely with good decanting. Also it pairs well with Italian food, and though I do now enjoy it on its own, its excellent sharpness to go with the fruit does well with those warm Italian tomato-based dishes.

Top recommendation. It's one of the best wines we have on here, and you should broaden your tastes from Chard and Cab! 8)

Interesting, I did the same a couple of years ago when I tried one of the single vineyards from a random pack on the PNP. I thought it was a acidic mess, but i'm a believer now

In for 1. Time to restock the fridge.... and let the tastings begin for my wedding.

If anyone has any great idea's of wine's that appeal to the masses please PM me. Looking to do something different than the typical Cab and Chard. Not even sure what people typically spend per bottle.

Honestly, buy the cheap crap for the masses and keep a few choice bottles hidden somewhere for you and your close friends assuming they, too, appreciate nicer wines. And mazel tov!

Never had 1 and today is not the day as all of the racks are full. Maybe next time.

Wife of Jim checking in a little late (sorry). 2005 was one of Rusty's 3 favorites when we did a 20-year vertical last year. It seems that the wines from lighter years age remarkably well.

Unsophisticated wine drinker here... But this stuff just isn't as good this time around (relative to the last offering that included the reserve). What gives? Just in my head?
