I've certainly enjoyed Keller's wines in the past, but don't recall tasting this one. The La Cruz Syrah (I last had a 2004) was delicious! Pinots were out of my price range at the time, but I recall them being tasty as well.

Anybody have notes on this one?

Edit: Not buying wine is kind of hard sometimes. SIWBM must stand.

I ended up with two bottles the last time this deal came up. Here's my nots from CT.


11/22/2012: nose is of mainly raspberries with some muted cherries and earth in the background. Not a light pinot, medium/light bodied and feels slightly watery on the back of the tongue. A good value at the woot price, but way overpriced by the winery. Solid in the $15-18 range.

18.25 a bottle shipped this time. 16.75 a bottle shipped last time. So a $1.50 a bottle increase over last time. $2 is summer shipping, is the rest my stupid states sales tax that used to be averaged?

Good notes. I've had this and enjoyed a bottle at a ~$17 price, but I think it's overpriced at winery list of $25 + shipping. However, it's typical of new wineries to vastly overprice wines. At this point I'm undecided - I've got a fair amount of Pinot for current drinking, and SWMBO prefers the lighter ones.

Yes, you are missing the sales tax.

At woot prices, I've yet to have a Keller Estate wine that I haven't really enjoyed. They make very nice Pinot for the price, it's not easy to find a decent bottle of Pinot in this price range IMHO.

You may be in one of the states that doesn't get tax collected on Woot (yet).


As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

Well...if that's the case, you can't really blame woot or the wine seller.

Just a small note: this wine is 100% from Estate grown fruit. So all La Cruz Vineyard and all Pinot Noir, sometimes people like to sneak in some Syrah!

Do you think that's still happening? I remember when PN became huge, people didn't "get" that PN comes in a bit lighter than what most are used to (CS, maybe Syrah) but they wanted to drink PN. I think the PN hype has died. I thought the Syrah additions had along with it.

Not necessarily - final price after taxes and shipping is the most relevant price to use for comparisons. I do this with all wine sellers, both brick/mortar and internet.
