Sizzlin' Six-Packs

Imagine the look on your friends' faces when you tell 'em you'll bring over a six-pack and you show up with six bottles of wine. If they're wine drinkers, they'll probably be excited! If they're not wine drinkers, they probably won't be as excited, but honestly, how important are they as friends if they're not wine drinkers.

In on the j. Dusi, it was my wife's favorite wine of the year, although I'm bummed the price is up about a 1.50 a bottle

McClean Syrah is good stuff. Bold, juicy just enough balance with restraint finish.... me recommend. Checking my inventory to see if I need to restock... BRB

You're not seeing things. The McClean price was adjusted to $68.99. As always, if you already ordered, the difference will come flying back to your account before long.

Anyone try the Vinum Cellars Petite Sirah & Zin? I've been disappointed buying stuff here in the past without seeing any comments from the community.

I am glad this was done after I made my order on sport.woot, because with the combined shipping, I would have been in at this lower price. Now I have an extra $70 in my wallet and 6 less bottles.

Interested in the Wolves, but I don't need 6 of anything at the moment. Anyone care to chime in with a review of it?

Also, willing to split in Austin.

I've had the RBW Bordeaux blend and it was quite good. Definitely New World, with subtle oak, and a nice fruity bouquet. Has a definite Washington State quality that sets it apart from most California reds.

More restrained I would say than the Cabernet, Merlot and Malbec I have had from RBW.

I have been a big fan of the RBW Cabs and Merlots in the past. This one I also liked and it is certainly worth the price if not quite to the level of the 2009 Cab.

Not sure if I would be as impressed at retail.

Is it broke or just fractured?

We brought a bottle of it to the gathering at Ty's house in April or march. Maybe you missed it.

You are missing an awesome hot weather sipper! I found it to be light, almost water-like, with a slight tropical fruit flavor. Very "steely" if that makes sense. Crisp, refreshing, and low alcohol. I dont drink much Pinot Grigio so could not tell you how true to the grape it is but Wife and I really enjoyed it.

Yes, missed that one.
Is Ty in SoCal, or you travel to central or NorCal?

I had the zin. My notes are in the original sales thread. Sorry, don't have the link.

The short version is I thought it was appropriately priced. An adequate daily, weeknight zin, nothing overly complex or amazing.

Anybody have their order yet? I got a tracking number a few days ago, but fedex still doesn't have any updated tracking info... I'm wondering if it's just me, or if it's everyone.

Wine shipments take a bit longer than shipments from our other sites, especially summer shipping 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.

Same boat, but I've had similar experiences in the past with how the vineyards ship. My guess would be that it goes out on Monday, but we shall see.

Understood. Just seemed odd because I ordered the Renwood Amador County Estate Syrah on the 15th, and just got it, while this order was placed on the 3rd, and fedex says it's still "Initiated." And not to pick nits, but today is 3 weeks to the day since I placed this order. I understand it's out of woots control, just sayin'.
