But, but, @ world market for $8.99...?
I need to check and make sure it's the same, too large a price differential.

$10.95 is the lowest price on wine-searcher (non-pro edition)
EDIT: found the 2011 for $9.99, that's probably what World Market is selling

Google search brought up $11.49 at another site. The picture looks different so I'm not exactly sure it is the same wine. If it is, it is $10 less for 4 with calculated shipping to my state (FL).

$20 a bottle at a major retailer in Dallas. I'm guessing what you're finding is not the same thing as this retailer has as good of prices as anywhere I can typically find online. Alas, no real savings on Woot for me!

Bought some last year. Mostly gave as gifts, but the bottle I kept was a robust, quality table wine. I didn't take tasting notes on it, but I recall it being quite tasty with dark chocolate.

When I've seen this at World Market, it's been bottled with paper labels. What Woot had last time, and appears to have this time, is bottled with screen-printed graphics on the glass. I don't know if the juice is different from one to the other, but the ink-on-glass version is a much more attractive gift bottle. Several of the folks I gave this to last Christmas kept the bottle.

I've been checking woot daily in anticipation of seeing this. No coffin with this offer but I'm in for 3 anyway. $5 shipping makes this an awesome deal
Woohoo!

Yeah, I saw this wine at Kroger in the Dallas metro... Um... it was around $20.

These better not be paper labels as the pictures are definitely of the beautiful painted bottles.

It looks like this year Armida bottled a lower end of this. I happen to have both. The less expensive with a paper label is designated as " California" and the other with the silk screening is designated as " Dry Creek". I have not tasted the less expensive yet but for $9.99 how can you go wrong with Armida juice?

Never had anything other than silk-screen bottles.

This is the wine that got me started on woot. Given the expense, I should be cursing it. Yet, I look forward to it.

Will likely wait until later to see if I need to wootleg. But time to replenish.

And they have the most wonderful view from their tasting room, with a bocce court. Great place to visit.

I finished off my last bottle of Poizin a month or two ago and was looking for more to come around. Alas I am in Ohio, so I'm out.

It was quite tasty juice.

The bottles that I received had the printed on logo, which I use one of the empties as a show piece (empty). It has been quite a conversation starter.

I'm also surprised to see Ohio off the list. This was always one of my sure buys when I lived there, and last year I just had it shipped to a friend. Now in PA I know I can't buy online, but I did find a wine/liquor store that sometimes has this on the shelf. Basically the same price when shipping is factored in, and I can buy fewer bottles if I choose to.

I like to cook with wine. In fact, I drank a bottle last night while cooking dinner!

They also make quite the conversation piece at parties when you bring them as a mini-growler for homebrew and just drink from the bottle (it's only about 24oz or 2 beers' worth).

Hi Wooters!!
WinemakerB, the maker of Poizin here. I will be checking in periodically today, while I work on fermenting the 2013. Ask me anything.

Hey all!

Wine.Woot is currently not able to offer wine deals in certain states, but will be opening up additional states as laws and regulations regarding selling wine online continue to evolve.
You're welcome to also check out this thread to discuss and talk about current Wine Shipping Laws

I trimmed out a few posts on the topic so it's easier to find the posts on the wine.

Just verified this with the local WM.
Dry Creek red silk on glass is $18.99
Calif paper label is #13.99
The $8.99 was earlier this year and was for the 2011 bottling.

So a purchase from woot would save $1.05, not including gas and drive time...

Hey Winewooters, Steve from Armida here. Looks like you've figured it out but to clarify - There are now two POIZINS; the original DC POIZIN in the screened bottle and a very new California appellation POIZIN labeled with a paper label. This offer is for the original Dry Creek POIZIN. While both POIZINs are DELICIOUS, their provenance is different - the DC POIZIN is made from some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in Dry Creek and the California POIZIN is made mostly from LODI grapes. The two POIZINs also have different barrel experiences. Hope this helps! Steve

We stopped on the inaugural tour in '08, not sure if they stopped in 2010 on the 2nd tour.

And I'm pretty sure he's referring to their winemaker (at the time, not sure if she's still there).

If your state isn't currently on the ship to list...I suggest flying out to our tasting room and buying the wine there, then smuggling it back.

I like the way you think, however, I'd be worried about the TSA having their own "taste test" at my expense!

I love when this shows up. Love the screw cap too, since it makes the bottle reusable for beverages. And the bottle is too cool. Drinking some Antidote now. I am definitely a red wine person tho. So, I'm in for a double order.

But...what's up with the taxes? That's new.
