Got nothing but positives to say on their cabs. If I weren't on a buying freeze, I'd be all over these...

Solid bottles all, these are the bottles you're looking for, and for less than I paid in June.
All in the cellar already, or I'd be in for two like last time.
Peter and WD, you're rocking it this time.

Very tempting. But can't really afford it. Maybe a nice three way split on this.

Here's some notes from my CT account
07' merlot Sonoma valley
10/7/2012
This is a great food wine. It has some nice rounded red fruit with some plum notes. Mildly tannic and full bodied. It will not overpower red meats but will compliment them. Not as soft as a typical merlot but not as aggressive as a good young cab. Highly recommended.

08' Zinfandel Meeks hilltop ranch
9/19/2013
A really nice medium bodied zin. Fruit forward and a bit jammy but not sweet. It's 5 years old but showing really nicely at this point. Really nice wine Peter.

I just opened a bottle of the 2007 Merlot earlier this month. It was exceptional!!! My notes from CellarTracker:

"Dark berry on the noise, with some cigar notes, and some smooth leather. Nose is awesome and complex.

Mouthfeel is balanced with a great black currant flavor, with more dark berries. Again, great balance and a long finish. This reminds me of the 1996 GunBun Merlot that got me into wine. Super yum."

I would take the Meeks off your hands if that would help.

Anyone catch what the sticker on the Syrah says? I was guessing its a disclaimer that the wine is not from table grapes from England.

From the "About Us" page on Wellington's website:

"We use a blend of organic and traditional farming practices that promote healthy vines and a healthy environment."

Is traditional the same as conventional? Meaning the use of pesticides, herbicides, etc. When I think traditional I think old, before artificial biocides were created.

This would cost me 157.86. Pretty good, considering. I bought a mixed case in early 2011 for 144.99 shipped. Now that was a deal! :-)

Still trying to clear a path through the guest room / library / wine storage room, but I can always make room for more Wellington. That said, keeping my fingers crossed for the 2007 Merlot!

What has changed. I live in Maine, and have bought the wellington wines before. This time it has said no.It has happened a few time with other vendors recently.
Maine changed the rules a few years ago , and I don't believe they changed again.

This will be the 4th case of Wellington I've wooted since becoming assimilated into the Wellington collective in May. I enjoyed the '09 Merlot (along with the CS, Zin, Syrah & Duke) from my first case but have not had an opportunity to purchase the '07 Merlot. I would very much like to try it. I know it is "winery choice", but if I buy 2 cases, will I get one with the '07 and one with the '09?

Damn. Seriously. I havent been able to buy wine in MO from woot for a few months now. Any other sites/clubs like this you guys recommend? What the heck is the deal?

Thanks to my brother coming from a Woot (or winery) approved state for the holidays I can finally re-stock my supply, which has been dwindling more rapidly with the cold weather!

Really on the fence with this one. I've seen lot's of positive comments regarding the Wellington wines. I'm on a bit of a self implemented buying freeze but this is tempting my resolve.

If anyone from Wellington drops by...
Any chance you can give those of us not on the Woot shipping list but in a state that Wellington can ship to directly a similar deal deal?

Some of the other wineries have been accommodating in this matter.

Maybe I'm not following what you're asking--but I believe you can have it shipped to a FedEx office in a state of your choosing (assuming its on the ship to list.)

I always buy these but I'm less of a Zin fan and have too many already and don't need six more. If this excluded the Zin I would buy the case.

With all the changes on the ordering system, I have a question -

How does gifting work now? Can you still send a gift and then order for yourself? I think it used to be you could order the max for yourself and max for the gift - is that still true?

I meant traditional as in old style. The only thing we've ever put on our vines is sulfur dust, which has been used for millenia to control powdery mildew on grapes.

I have never ever had a bad bottle of Wellington. As a wine club member I received my own case just weeks ago, and still jumped on this! Thanks Peter!

I'm a wine club member, and planning to visit the winery in early December so I was thinking I'd really clean up there...but wow, this is an amazing deal, and now I don't have to find room in my van to haul wine home with me.

...who am I kidding, I'm going to buy this PLUS more at the winery.

Wellington was the first wine I ever wooted, and it immediately convinced my skeptical husband ("You bought WINE off the INTERNET?!") and led to many, many, many, many more bottles.

Well, I've been buying Wellington since May of 2007 here. As the wine surplus has multiplied over the year, I have slowed my purchases but Wellington is one that usually an auto-buy for me. This is the first time I've tried to buy more and told MO is no longer on the ship to list.

What's going on around here?????
