For me, better with food but good without. Our tri-tip was pre-seasoned and it was really salty so it overpowered the wine a bit. I really don't think anything would stand up to the salt, though. This with BBQ pork ribs would kill. Or the pork and chicken from Canyon City BBQ in Asusa + this would be awesome.

Haven't met a Woot Cellar Wine I didn't like. Some have been better than others, but all I would classify as good, most are great. Original Monkey Prize? Amazing.

Anyway, this with the Noceto are both over-powering my SIWBM so I'm in. My Wootlegger is getting some work!!!

Recently tasted this.

Nose: Alcohol, hint of cherry, leather, ground pepper.

Taste: Rich, full bodied, fruit forward, cherry, leather, not hot alcohol

Finish: long finish - neutral tannins

Overall: not exceedingly complex but very enjoyable. Held up well with our corned beef and cabbage. Seems in its prime drinking window right now. I'm getting some.

Cheers!

sounds good from the notes - I'm going to have to send some to my parents in NC and pick up over the Holidays, as still no shipping to GA ---

in for 1, but I'm wondering if/when the xmas woot cellars will be out. I still have 1 left of their original, and at least 1 of every other year.

Thanks for giving me a local BBQ place to pair this with. I haven't been there in awhile and maybe it's time to bust out my BBQ shirt.

Not speaking for anyone, but I'm guessing this is it. No holiday theme, but who needs a holiday theme when you have wine....

is this the Christmas/holiday woot cellars release. Do u guys no longer do those Christmas themed ones ? Like humbug etc.
I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks

Good morning.

There MAY be one other original woot cellars offer this year (think Gov't shutdown delays for late label approval) but it will not be Christmas themed.

I hope you enjoy Toothy II. Elegant is a great description.

thanks,

Hmm, ya think?

Funny that the first application you linked, the one for the Toothstejn, shows the wrong label! I wonder if they used the computer system in my office to create that one?

OK, Woot, ya got me -- between the Cab Franc and the SpongeBob, resistance is futile. Just need to decide whether to get one or two.

Sorry about my rather terse comments from earlier - we lost power in the Midwest storms - still out - and I am an impatient phone typer.

I don't drink a lot of Cab Franc so I do not have a preconception of the grape. I will concur with other tasters in that the nose has a distinctive eucalyptus/menthol/alcohol note. Unfortunately, smell is one of those things we do not have a way to readily compare with others' perceptions, especially in wine since there are so many things going on, some blatant, some subtle. Sort of like picking out the viola part in an orchestra. I had the last glass today without food and it has a bit more acid than I noticed when I had it with the corned beef - which is a good thing. Still not astringent by any means.

It was good to read the other tasters as they had the same impression about it being ready to drink now. Don't really have an opinion about ageability, bit is is a 2009, so it is doing pretty well so far.

BTW - Last night with the power out, we had neighbors return from out of town and couldn't get in their house as they were planning on going in their garage. So, we had them over for the night, and, as they are wine drinkers, I enlisted them in the tasting too.

This confirmation seals the deal for me. I love the pure expression of Cab Franc! I find it a much more intriguing wine than blends simply fronted by Cab Franc. No regrets having gone in for three first thing this morning.

Ditto on the Cab Franc love.

BTW, as someone else posted above, TS the First was my my first Woot purchase ever -- can't believe it was 5 years ago! A completely different wine, though. Here's a snippet from the specs from that one:

2005 Sangiovese

Vineyard: Los Alamos
Composition: 75% Sangiovese 12.5% Merlot 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon
Fermentation: Open Top
Bottled: July 2008
Alcohol: 13.9%
pH: 3.49
RS: 0.077 g/100mL
