Malbec Grenache Cab Blanc Noir

What happens when a Malbec, a Pinot Noir, a Grenache Blanc, and a Cabernet get together to be in the same plus sale? We don't know, but we're sure there're gonna be a lot of WACKY results!

More than you can possibly drink.

BTW why do they show RBW's "bad Moon Rising" in the main page of the "woot plus" and Malbec in the offer, I'd jump all over the BMR.

Same could probably be said about the 2009 Martian Grenache Blanc. That one just won't run out.

I don't think it sells that well. Thus repeat offers to move it. My wife enjoyed the flavor profile but found the wine to be too heavy on the tongue. I enjoyed it more. But she drinks most of the whites so it is not a rebuy.

I thought you've bought this Malbec a couple of different times now?

Your right it was called Winter Reds in the Jan woot off. I do like it,
not really in it this morning just got the results of an MRI this week and it seems I have torn my achilles now waiting for a Ortho appointment,
so much for golf and possibly my trip to Austin in august.

Bummer Fred. Hope you recover as quickly as possible. I grew up around Austin - not to be missed! I remember reading you were thinking about retiring there. Awesome choice

The Grenache Blanc is well worth the money if you even remotely like whites.

The Copa Del Rey is decent for steak marinades or if you want to start your own homemade balsamic bucket. Or perhaps degrease a submarine.

I like the copa for a good everyday wine. I drink it a couple of times a week. I am getting low so will probably buy. Can't beat a steady, solid wine for under 10 bucks a bottle shipped. Plus I can cook with it, and marinate meats, and not break the bank!!!

Do you have any tasting notes for the Grenache Blanc? I have considered this offer before but never seen to get much from those who have tasted it. I did see one wooters notes on CT but would appreciate additional feedback.

Regarding the "balsamic bucket" idea for the Copa. Sound interesting. What do you do?

Hey Fred, I'm in Austin right now visiting friends. It's too.damned.hot. Postpone till October and its a perfect place to visit.

As for the Malbec, its awesome. I'm sorry to see it offered right now because I promised myself that I wouldn't buy anymore wine until I'm off the meds that don't allow any alcohol. (And believe me, I tested that one with more than a little regret).

I'm thinking of retiring there, so I want to go at the worst weather time to see if I can handle it.

I haven't been around in a while, so I might've missed previous offers -- but this Grenache Blanc looks fantastic.
There aren't a ton of stats, but the alc % looks manageable and the farm appears to be bio (cue nasty comments from Kyle, etc).
CT notes aren't glowing, but reading btw the lines, it sounds like a white rhone that's more to my palate than the tasters. Looks like a buy.

Living in Austin, where it will be around 100° for the next week. Should I hold off on buying any wine due to the heat related with shipping?

WD just posted this in the daily thread:

Winedavid39 wrote:Hello. Special care is given when shipping wine during this time of year.

We've become really good at it.

Focus on timing, reefer trucks, packaging, all work together to ensure wine is delivered safe and sound. if there is a (rare) problem, contact support@woot.

thanks,

It's heavier than I thought it would be but had a nice flavor profile. My wife didn't want it again but I thought it was an interesting style and liked it more than she did.

We are running low on Pinot, so, since I pulled the trigger on the SH Syrah, I went in for one of the "So Be It"s.

Is there anything better than good-quality $11.50/bottle (w/tax & shipping) Pinot?

had some of the malbec a few days ago while "crafting" (drinking wine and sewing). really my friend just made me taste it to see if she had really let it skunk. she left it in her car for 3 weeks in hot and humid florida.

moral of the story: like milk gone bad, when someone says "hey try this i think it's skunked," it's a trap! do not try it; it really is skunked.

i'm sure it's a good wine when not skunked (i had the RBW cab and that's pretty good).

Damn. I would have jumped on that Malbec.

I'm curious about the Grenache. I haven't seen it here before, but I don't check in often. I have, however, seen the Copa about 12 times.... can't believe that stuff it still hanging around.

I live in Austin, and Woot summer shipping generally works. Just make sure you get your delivery sent to a UPS Store or Fedex location so that it isn't driving around all day in the heat.

It's been offered at least 20 times, no exaggeration. WD said it was the best-selling woot-off wine ever.

And as many wines as I have bought here and as long as I've been around these parts, I have never bought it.

I'm very bummed I missed a chance to grab more of the Malbec. If you find extra bottles, I volunteer to give you money for them!

I've never bought it, either. I've been tempted by the price point, but kept away by the sheer number of times I've seen it up for grabs.
