Great reviews. In for one along with an order of Toothy, which I really like.


As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

Traveling today and didn't get a chance to order. Any chance a few more appear before 1 a.m. eastern or are they gone for good?

I wouldn't count on it. That's not something they do when a wine sells out. Gone 'til the next time they come up.

I'm confused about your statement the tasting room is not open yet..I believe this winery is no longer in business, which is why we are getting the current woot deals.

The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Syrah. Single Vineyard grown.

The '10 Reserve is 50% Cab Sauv and 50% Syrah. It is single vineyard grown and was stored on 50% new French Oak for 20 months.

I was there last year, but y'know...you could be right. I thought they just hadn't opened for the year...most of the wineries opened this month, and a lot of them are still opening downtown. Tough keeping track...it's a fast-moving industry in the WW Valley. Whether or not they're still there, I still nabbed one here.

you are right. If you take a look at the last Woot from this Winery, I posted about their existence. Sorry I didn't get to write in on this one. This is a much better offer than the last. I was just too busy working on making a few wines the past few days to respond.those of you who did pick this up will be very excited about the wines, especially at the price. hopefully this will get more of you trying some northwest wines!

Josh...You must be heartened as I am that this was a sellout. True, most of the sales were here in the PacNW, but to the rest of the country - next time some WW wines crop up here, pull the trigger. It's like drinking nectar instead of medicine.

I'm having a blast plowing through your site, by the way. I hope DC/VA wises up to the offerings, and we'll stop into Va Piano soon.
