Nice, $10 less than what I paid on 5/10/13 when it was a WootPlus offer. I would provide notes, but I have not tried any of mine yet. I've been letting it rest for a while after the process of moving. Many have posted positive comments about this being great QPR.

For the original woot price I really enjoyed this, for this price, this is a no brainer IMHO!

In for a set!

Tasting notes posted previously:

Tasted over two nights.

Nose of dark fruit, candied bing cherry, earth, nice floral components.

On the palate the fruit is very tasty, not an old world pinot for sure, but not an over the top fruit bomb either. Lots of dark cherry, forest floor, bit of mushroom typically associated with Sonoma Coast fruit, nice acidity, and a nice spicy finish. The finish was medium plus, and there were nice layers to the wine which is something I really look for in a quality Pinot.

IMHO this is a wine if you paid $30 for at the store or winery you would not be disappointed. For $13 a bottle, if you like Pinot, this is a no brainer.

Ugh, you are really tempting me.

I've considered this one seriously each and every time it has been offered. I might be in this time.

*edit* In for one, and combined it with protein powder from Sports.Woot. Weird, I know.

It is just after 1am here in MN and I dug out a bottle of this and opened it up. Without reviewing previous tasting notes, I was going to post my own notes of dark cherry and earthy/mushroom tones. I'm far from experienced when it comes to pinpointing flavors, but after seeing bsevern's notes I'm in agreement and feel that's a completely accurate description. Here's an adequate cell phone photo:



I'm a fan of zins and I'm quite new to PN, but I found this to be a very enjoyable wine and I'd recommend it. I'm definitely in for 6 more. Now I'm wondering how much longer these will age before passing their prime...

EDIT: Despite having ordered this previously, now it isn't available to ship to MN?! This is truly disappointing :-(

Probably the best Pinot Noir at this price point since D'Ontspille Le Black. If I were in a buying phase I'd probably go in for a set.

2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

Loved this when purchased in December. Was in for 3 before I discovered that it no longer ships to GA.....

Seems strange but I guess they chose not to re-up their licenses for individual states.

oh well, for those of you lucky enough to have access, LOAD UP. You won't be disappointed.

Doesn't Detroit have enough problems? Now we can't even order good wine!

No NY gain. Is this a W O O T A Z O N thing or just the wineries they are picking. CA wines were almost always good to NY

Okay, something is officially amiss in Wootville. Since The 10th, the same 16 states and District of Columbia have been the only places the offerings could be shipped. That's 6 straight days plus the Woot Plus. That's too much of a coincidence considering that they have all been different Vineyards. Anyone in the backroom have an explanation for what's going on

I am in NY too and cannot get any wine? Is this a permanent thing going forward? should I stop browsing wine woot?

No joy to Georgia again. And still no explanation. I'll check a few more times, then I'm going to have to write off wine.woot. No point in looking at things I can't have.

While I sympathize with all of you living in states this wine will not ship to there has to be some compensation for living in this forsaken state of Illinois with our ridiculous taxes, underfunded pensions and horrible winters. I guess this is it. In for 2

In for a set. I have been on the fence the last few offerings, but at <$10 after shipping and tax this is a screaming deal.

And for those having issues with the ship to states, see the linked discussion posted above me. I can sympathize, but I can guarantee that wine.woot wants to ship to you. That's how they make money. They are just hand tied at the moment. And other sites that are shipping to you are probably doing so at risk.

Ditto!! I was looking to max out on this!!
Can we get someone from Woot to confirm why GA was pulled off the list? I just ordered some a couple of weeks ago!!

This really bums me out. I have bought many cases from wine.woot over the last several years. Anyone know if we'll be able to ship to Ohio again soon or at all?

So the state list is down to 17, and now doesn't include Georgia, which is where my previous purchase of this juice (5/5/13, 59.99 plus shipping) now resides. What gives? Is this still the "individual winery" deal, or are more states closing the door on us?

Hmmm....

Since Most states are lacking in shipping and Illinois is lacking in gathering participation, we will just have to set up a big wootleg convention here so we can finally have a big Chicago area gathering.

BTW, bought one so I would be happy to share if you show up sometime.

For the first time since they stopped shipping to NY (thanks, buzzkill state legislators for muddying the waters enough to make this impossible right now), I really want to buy! Oh, well, guess it saves me a few bucks, but I'm still sad!

So, this is the part of year that always confuses me. Will wine possibly still be shipped refrigerated even though summer shipping prices aren't in effect?

I didn't realize that until after I placed my order.

Doing this completely from memory without written notes. I enjoyed D'Ontspille Le Black more than the So Be It. That said, this is a good wine for BYO restaurants (May be a NJ thing) or to open among casual friends. Certainly not the best Pinot out there but meets or slightly exceeds the Price/Quality point. IMO Hope that helps those of you on the fence.

I would be in, except SWMBO and I are drinking far less so we're now buying fewer, more expensive bottles instead of daily drinkers. Nice offer, though (if you can get it).

This shipped to Missouri last November when I last bought it, why not now?

Well, the button is bouncing at the halfway point so maybe the powers that be are putting out some lower volume offers while waiting for the lawyers and bureaucrats to work out their issues. Had this offer been available to all the usual states it might have sold out by breakfast.

Not to put too fine a point on this, but the ruling in question took place on April 9, 2013. And it only effects New York, as it was a state authority that made the ruling (it seems now that New York and Connecticut are vying with California as to who can have the most oppressive state government, but that is for another day). So, why all of a sudden, in September, is there a huge cut in the number of states available for shipping?

EDIT: I see that Wine Library got a C&D from New York. I understand caution, but this was one regulatory in one power mad state.

Interestingly I actually enjoyed the So Be It much more so then I enjoyed D'Ontspille Le Black.

I think So Be It is a bit more new world oriented, and a more complex Pinot. I still have a bottle or two of D'Ontspille Le Black, it would be an interesting combo to compare side by side.

For the unaffected shipping states, this might be a really bad situation... I mean blow out deals on wine (what originally got us hooked on wine.woot)...not sure how much more wine I can take on, but I went in on a case of this!
