I'm on on this. The last rose blend I had was from pear valley which I did not like, let's hope it's better than that. Nice work on the label too guys. I'm glad you continued the concept from the albino rhino.

...grumble grumble....stupid shipping restrictions....grumble grumble...

Any chance Woot will save any of the recent Woot Cellars offers for later once MN (as well as other states) gets back on the shipping list? **fingers crossed**

Well, glad somebody in the pub figured this one out, since I'm currently sipping some of this tasty juice!

First tried this back in August at the Wootception, and did not care for it at the time (although others did). At this point I should mention that I'm fairly picky wrt rosé. It's gotta have fruit and it's gotta not have any sense of cleaning fluid that's gotten into my bottle. Best rosé I've ever had just reminded me of fresh ripe sweet strawberries and was amazingly refreshing. Tough task to live up to.

On to tonight's sampling. At PnP this was not my thing at all - the nose was too reminiscent of cleaners and some other kind of funk. Palate was also kind of astringent and lemony in the sense of citrus-scented cleaner.

Good thing first impressions don't last forever! After even 5-10 minutes the citrus cleaner scent disappeared and watermelon took its place. Watermelon is a good thing. At this point the wine was clearly starting to come into its own. Not a ton of complexity, but I wasn't expecting any either.

As the night wears on, the fruits evolve more sweetness and to be more up front on the palate. The watermelon remains, but adds strawberry and lemongrass. There's even a hint of passionfruit or something of that nature. Now I like this! It's extremely gulpable at this stage and it's tough to not finish the whole bottle in one sitting. Glad it's in the fridge... The acidity is bright but not overpowering while the fruit is taking its appropriate place for my tastes in rosé.

This went fairly well with blackened redfish seasoned with a Cajun-ish spice blend. It went extremely poorly with persimmon crisp. The latter was not a surprise.

At $10+tax/ship per bottle this is a good value. I like this more than the $6 TJ's J.L. Quinson Provence Rosé and I think it will have more longevity similar to the McClean Syrah Rosé of recent offering. Another great effort from Meeker.

If somebody wants to share 2 bottles molarchae and I are in. No room for a full set (nor the two, to be honest, but it's tasty!).

Always willing to bring wine back. It may make it empty, but the bottle will make it!

But it might be easier if I just share with him. And anyone else.

So is this a dressed up new Pink Elephant vintage? I imagine the winemaking was similar as were the grapes used. PE was under $7 shipped. This offer close to $12 shipped.

As klezman mentioned, WD brought this to our wootception back in August. it was served after Twisted Oak's new rose, and WD leaned in to me and said he was afraid to open the woot cellars rose after that one. But I felt then that it was definitely strong enough to stand beside it. It wasn't ready, but I could taste the potential, and with Klezman's report, it sounds like it's finally had the bottle time it needed. Woot Cellars reds are known for needing a year after release to show their stuff, so in my head it makes sense that the rose needed another 6 months to wake up. i imagine this is going to be killer next summer.

time to go find a credit card...

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

If it's anything like the Pink Elephant, I can imagine this is best 30-60 minutes post-pour. That juice was immensely improved by a little exposure to air and an increase in temperature.

Neither the other half nor I loved it right after PnP. But we thoroughly enjoyed it (with and without food) a bit later in the evening after it had warmed up a bit.

I may or may not be expecting to have more on this later. Unfortunately, the FedEx fairy seems to have delayed something being sent our way...

Looking at the blend I'm guessing it's pretty low, but does anyone know the RS on this? I like my rosé dry dry dry.

Echoing Cheron98, the TO was a tough act to follow, and for me, at the time, this didn't do it. But as Klez was lucky enough, along with some others with palates I trust to score a leftover bottle and report it's improvement, I can be convinced if only for the label, but I don't buy wine for the label, except woot wine.

Yes, that too could work. someone just tell me who I owe and where it will be.

RS is about 35 mg/100mL. AKA, pretty much bone dry. Dryness for refermentation concerns is 30 mg/100mL, to give you a frame of reference.

Bone dry. No perceptible RS. A hint of sweet perception from the fruitiness, but that's not RS.

It's actually a different blend, and we've since raised the price on Pink Elephant. Winery price on Pink Elephant is $19 a bottle now, so even if you are comparing it to PE, it's a great value.
