HOLY S**T

I don't know how you all know when you are the first buyers but this might be a first for us as FIRSTERS.

When I told my SO that it's Alexander Valley Merlot she said - BUY IT. And I mean BUY IT !!

So we did.

Noticed the Geyser Peak 2007 Malbec based blend is up on ww Plus. Anybody opened one of those yet? As long as I'm on a Geyser Peak roll...

I'd have a nice little collection of Geyser Peak wines by now if it wasn't for Ohio's "buzzkill legislators".

It's a very minor matter to most people, but in the Quality Post listing in reference to Cesare's post for this offer, I think "peeks" makes more sense than "peaks."

I like the specs on this wine. Looks more like the old world style. I'm in.

But what if Cesare really is peaking out. I mean, do we know one way or another?

I sense the woot writing staff inserted a (bad) pun into their York Peppermint Patty listing. This is from Geyser "Peak", right?

Dag Nabbit! Logged in, and was interested in the Merlot offer. Saw references to the 97 Ardente and my mind went blank. Went to the plus page and promptly checked out before any sellout could occur. Didn't even think about adding this deal so I didn't have to pay double shipping! Stupid cart.

Too late to cancel order and start over?

The wine is OK, but counting shipping, the price here is about 50% higher than what I'd expect .. unless I'm missing something special about these particular two bottles of Geyser Peak Alexander Valley Merlot ..

What do you expect? $10/bottle?

It's their block collection. It's a quality tier above what you see in stores with the geyser peak label. The 2010 sells for $28 a bottle on the winery's website.

This Block Collection Merlot has a special place in the Geyser Peak heart. The Fay family ranch is about 2 miles from the winery- we can actually see their vineyards from the tasting room. Each year the fruit is consistent in flavor profile and creates a bigger style Merlot. Most Cab drinkers really like this one. Only available at the winery.

All day shipping, no?

No.

"we only ever had that $5 All You Can Ship in a Day promotion going because we didn't have a shopping cart. So now that we have a shopping cart, we're getting rid of it. Standard shipping is now $5 per order — just get all your stuff in one order, and it's basically the same thing."

Cool, I never saw that before although I notice that you only have 15 minutes from the time you place your order to cancel.
