My post asking about cellaring (which is the same as "drinking window") was before his post. So how was his technically first?????


Plus, I asked about Early Burgundy, which Cesare got a (You get a gold star.) for answering!!


No one wants to share? I'm trying to make room for the RPM Tour purchases, not need another locker!

I supposed I may have to go in on this ... since A) it's Scott and B) it's Scott. And C) I have no wine in the queue!


Edit: ALL CAPS IS MORE ANNOYING.



I'm the only one that read the book on wine.

Happy now? Look up.

Hmmm, a rarely seen varietal, excellent cab vineyards, an "available for wooters-only" sale, and all made by Scott Harvey? I'm in!

This offer gives me flashbacks to the Gazzi offers...which IMHO were outstanding QPR's so long as you enjoyed the style....

Any chance anyone is planning to put an inexpensive extra wine rack on sale in NYC Tri-state area? ;)

Until then, in for (only) 1. Really looking forward to try the Early Burgundy.

Life hack: The styrofoam shipping containers used for summer shipping do a pretty good job of regulating rapid temperature fluctuations and minor dampness when stashed in your crawl space or basement. They aren't pretty, but I've got about 10 of them stacked up in an interior corner of the basement which stays at a pretty decent temperature. They take well to notes with a Sharpie pen, to boot.

Amazon actually makes more money from 3rd party sales than they do from their own sales (on a percentage per sale basis).

It is drinking well now with about three more years to its peak. The Lake County wine is well structured with high elevation tannins that will hold it for another ten years.

Last wooter to woot: chipgreen

Thanks, Scott - looking forward to trying these out and hope to see you and Jana again as part of this summer's RPM Tour.

If so, was this done due to winemaking druthers or more for a commercial reason (the client deciding not to go forward with his project)?

These look like a really nice opportunity to enjoy a rare varietal and also some very nice cab. Thank you, as always, for your offerings and participation.



They were all bottled on the same day, because logistically it was easier. I was waiting for the client to get labels and he never did. The wines were getting past their window for bottling, so I went and bottled them with out labels. Then they sat in my warehouse for years before Drew talked me into offering them on Woot.

It is the Hawk and Horse Vineyard. Go to their website and take a look. The wines from this vineyard show great complexity and structure and have won many awards.
The offer should sell out fast, because there is only 30 cases of the Napa Cab. Although I would not mind if I got three bottles of the Red Hills cab instead.



I went for 3 offers so I think made a dent in your inventory !

Even cheaper, the 15% discount just about wipes out the shipping, so holds 144 bottles for about $102!

Wine.woot shipments take a bit longer than shipments from our other sites. Allow at least 2-3 weeks.

The FAQ:

How long is shipment going to take?
You should get your wine in 2-3 weeks, often sooner. We know the wait is kind of a drag. But it's still gonna taste good (maybe even better), and since we leave it to the wineries to get the wine to you, you can count on their experience to send their wine using their expert methodologies.

I am in the same situation, FedEx still shows:
Initiated - Shipment information sent to FedEx

When I checked this back in June it shows me an estimated delivery date (which is now in the past). I can only assume FedEx never received the shipment so they were forced to remove the estimate. It seems the wine has not yet been provided to FedEx.

I see 2-3 weeks note, however on my order it states:
Shipping Speed:Standard Summer (3-8 business days)

8 Business days from this 20-Jun offering was 3-Jul. I would expect some type of update from FedEx by now if they have the shipment, or a note to us the customers explaining the delay and setting a new shipment expectation.
I wrote in to Woot support about this and was told:

Very sorry for the confusion and mostly the delay, sometimes there is a conjoint flight when a package is delivered across the country please allow a few more days for the new update from FedEx to update, sorry for the inconvenience.

That was 2 days ago. Any help here is appreciated, again just want to know what to expect in terms of delivery.

As stated above, wine shipments take a bit longer. There's a lot of logistics going on behind the scenes.

In the summer, the wine shipments are timed and only ship out on Mon-Wed so they're not held over the weekend in a truck or storage facility.

I understand your impatience but you're getting a great wine and it will be worth the wait.

Hello, i'll check, but i presume you are in the midwest or east coast.

if so, wines in those regions are sent via a logistical infrastructure that focuses on safety above all. this process requires the use of refrigerated LTL trucks sent to strategically located small carrier hubs across the country. Your packages are dropped (at night) and are out for delivery the next or following day. This limits the exposure (and keeps costs reasonable compared to express service).

i'm happy to go into more detail. We started this in the summer of 2007 and have gotten pretty good at it (keeping wine safe). We recognize this takes a little longer due to consolidation of LTL freight. We refer to it as complimentary aging :-)

happy to discuss further.

Thank you for the response, I am on the east coast.

I just received an update from FedEx. The package was picked up in Sonoma CA on 9-Jul and is expected to be delivered on 11-Jul. Having delays are fine, the wine arriving in great condition is what matters
I was just noting it would be good to set proper expectations.
The large lag from shipment information being sent to FedEx (which happened sooner than I expected) to when the product was sent was concerning. I am sure the wine was properly stored between 25-Jun and 9-Jul so all should be good.
