Is it ok to discuss it, or is it some big secret? I'd love to see tasting notes from this community, if any exist.

I'm happy to post the link to the sale, if the Woot gods (or mods) won't smite me. (And come to think of it, wouldn't that make a great sitcom title -- "Mods and Gods"?)

I got the offer, too. Didn't even check it out since I'm buying no wine.

Links have been posted before in 'deals' without any known, or admitted, repercussions.

I've posted links to them in the other deals threads before with no hand slaps so i say post it there.

As far as the wine is concerned. It looks like the 05, and 06' were offered years ago with lots of discussion but this is our first shot at this vintage.

I am pretty sure it's fine? Or at least I don't mind! I know it's important to talk tasting notes, especially if you're on the fence.

Well, notes usually help people, and in that helping spirit, here's the link to the sale.

Ah, the problems of living in a "don't even think about shipping wine here" state.

During a Previous Haywood Zinfandel offer, Scott Harvey had this to say;

"I have always enjoyed Peter Haywood's wines. He is the only Zinfandel winemaker I know that does selective bunch selection during harvest. This means he has to go through and do multiple harvests on the same vineyard. This creates a more even ripness with each fermentation. I'm in."

That's the kind of helpful note I was talking about!
Edit: though I wonder if he's opened any... or if anyone has from the past offer.

Wootbot sent the note this morning. Maybe check your SPAM folder?

So do you want a bottle? RJ will take one, and I'll take 3, but that leaves one for someone.


Edit: Err, two for someone. Or one for two someones. Doh!

Nope. After my stillman purchase and the wine splits coming at our last meetup And a couple of recent woots I have to take a couple of months off of purchasing from all sources. Sounds excellent though.
