The other Braganini I've had, 2010 Cab Franc, took a wee bit of getting used to, a bit different from others I've had, but was quite good.
Very tempted here for some cool climate juice, hoping some have tasted and post.

Looks like that's for the 2009.
Numbers here are different, still..
Strange.

Yep, different vintages, different numbers but identical tasting notes.

EDIT: Heh, just realized the woot deal is supposed to be for 6 bottles, the picture only shows 4 and it says 4 on the wine.woot home page, but says 6 on the product page and Cesare posted 6 (but it says 4 at the top of this page!).

Even at $14.99/bottle, the savings are negated (IMO) with the $12 shipping charge. This is my first "wine by mail" experience, so I hope I am not disappointed.

Looks like you're getting a 6-pack here so it should be a good deal. Welcome to the wonderful (and addicting) world of wine.woot!

If it is for a six pack, I think I will give it a try. Waiting for confirmation.

Guess I PM'd the wrong mod.

Now that we’ve figured out the value issue (thank you), has anyone tasted this wine, or even the varietal?

I was at this winery just a few days ago. I didn't try this particular wine, but I thought I'd offer up my take on the wine there. Everything I tried was good, though if you like wine with a lot of tannins, this might not be the winery for you. Their reds were a bit milder than others I'd tasted. Again, I didn't taste this particular one, but I'd guess that this one would be on the soft side as well, flavor-wise. I don't really like dry reds, but my husband does. Based on our particular preferences, I thought St. Julian's reds were pretty tolerable and my husband thought they were good but not great. If you're looking for a red wine to appease a group of people with widely divergent tastes in wine, my guess is that this would probably be a pretty good choice. Also, the whites and fruit wines we tried at St. Julian were great, so if any of those ever go up for sale here I'll definitely be buying some.

At cellar tracker, it was $12 shipping for 4 bottles ... since Woot only charges $5 it was a better deal, especially now with 6 bottles. :-)

Thermovinification;
seems to be a bit of a hot topic, and I knew nothing about it, so I found a couple of primers that may be of assistance:
Wines and Vines is pretty extensive,
Midwest Press does a good job too, and has a great pic of a retail dispensing facility with some Chancellor for $7.50/gal.

Currently reading Clark Smith's Postmodern Winemaking book where he uses MOx to help with some extraction as well.
Curious what he'd say about this.
Hopefully we'll get some winery participation as well.

I haven't had this vintage of Chancellor, but I did have the 2009 from a previous wooting. I enjoyed it - but it's not a big California wine. It's less dense, less ripe, and with a set of flavours you don't often get in sunny CA: earth, leaves, etc...

So if you will only be happy with a high-extract Zin, this is not for you. If you like, say, Cru Beaujolais, then give this a try.

2014: 28 bottles. Last wine.woot: Scott Harvey Red Re-Mix
2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

Want a couple, or so?
