I got excited when I saw this and then I saw the price and said nope. BTW, specs say 2010 bottle says 2009.

I'm not blaming anyone. It's just a personal decision.

I feel sad that so many people are shut out, and wish that there were some way around it. It certainly explains why I was the first sucker on two offerings (KR Petite Sirah last night, and this one), but it doesn't make me happy to know that others are shut out.

I'd bet anything that Woot isn't happy about this, either. I'm pretty sure that Wine dot Woot was a good profit center, and this has to be painful to them.

Here's hoping for an end to the shipping nonsense.

oh, om nom. if we hadn't just received a giant shipment that we're still trying to figure out where to stash, we'd be all over this.

way better than the Twisted Few price, even with shipping included.

hm, maybe i can twist hak's arm anyway...

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

Agreed. I think I'm done buying until MN makes it back on. Heck, I can't believe that WI is off. But, who cares? NY is back on...

I, too, wish I could justify it. Got 2 bottles of the 2010 and one left of the 2009. Sure I could use 5 bottles, but nowhere to put them! And yes, this is a great price. Maybe tytiger will share some of his when we gather to drink

So is this a legit wine for >$20/bottle - or is it more gimmick for the time of year?

I'm not sure that the government is to blame. WOOT needs to be more forthcoming about this issue. They added New York back in but left Michigan out. I think it has more to do with collecting sales tax on mail order purchases BUT woot really does not adequately comment.

This isn't a Halloween, gimmick wine. It just so happens that it matches the season, but this is serious juice.

It has nothing to do with taxes, I'm sure. See the thread in the WoW tab.

I second Kyle on this one, I just got my Twisted Oak club shipment last night (Twisted Freak) and it had two of these bad boys in here. I already ran out of the 2009. I'm not always a Rhone guy but TO makes some great wines. The convenient label/name is just a bonus.

I've still got a few 2008 bottles of this. Anyone tasted through the vintages have input on 2010 vs the rest?

Anyone want to trade a bottle of this for a bottle of '09 Armida PoiZin? I'll throw in the '10 Antidote for free!

I twisted my own arm....but not quick enough. It sold out as I clicked the Process Order button. Had it all nice and pretty in my cart and then book, woot told me I suck.

Now if any Spaniard shows up....there will be no hesitating....

Bought 2 sets of this but would max out on the Spaniard if it showed up. It has been a very long time since the Spaniard last appeared here!

They don't tell us when these woot off sales will actually post so I just now saw this...

I'm miffed. I sent woot our list of states and they completely punted it. We can ship to Ohio and many other states that didn't get listed. Here is our actual list:

CA, NV, AZ, CO, DC, FL, GA, ID, IL, IA, KS, LA, ME, MD, MI, MN, MO, NH, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OR, TN, TX, VA, WA, WI, and WY.

If you weren't able to order this because your state wasn't listed please contact me at tastingroom@twistedoak.com and I will make this right.

I know this doesn't help now but Montana just changed their laws. We'll be applying for that permit soon, so look for us next time!
