Speculation here, but based on a recent shipment I received. Perhaps WD or Neil can comment, it may have actually already been in a shipping thread;
When your shipment is packed a tracking number is generated. This could be easily a few days to a week after the deal ends. Then it could be days, perhaps even a week or more, before the shipment actually leaves it's point of shipment, be it WCC or a winery. WD has mentioned using refrigerated trucking, not FedEx, to bulk transport shipments to a major FedEx center close to the final destination. This step could take a week or more as well. Not until the shipment is offloaded from this intermediate transport and FedEx has it in custody will the status change from 'shipping info received' to where you can actually track it's movement.
This happened to me on a recent McClean shipment that originated in Sonoma coming to San Diego. It's first appearance was in Ohio!
Seems like this shipment unintentionally made it on a truck heading to the midwest.
I no longer live in Indiana however.
