A Woot Classic Moment

We’re having so much fun being lazy reading these old write-ups that we’ve decided to share them with you through the end of our 10th birthday month! Check out this refurb- uh, classic.

Let's Get it Started: January 27, 2007:

There’s never a good time for your car battery to run dry of go-juice. You’ll wear out your fancy alligator shoes hoofin’ it to the nearest auto garage. You’ll succumb to hypothermia on the side of a remote mountain roadway. Or you’ll end up staying an extra night with your in-laws over Thanksgiving. Any way you carve this pumpkin, it ain’t pretty.

Lucky for you, you’re a wooter. You belong to a unique nationwide siblinghood whose motto is "Be Prepared—Wait, Isn’t That Motto Taken?" And while the prospect of an overnight stay in the parking lot isn’t attractive, your Vector Start-It 450 Amp Jump Start System sure is. With its sleek construction and convenient topside handle, it might pass for a stylish ladies’ pocketbook, but don’t try to fish around inside it for gum; you’ll almost certainly be electrocuted to death.

This juice box rides alongside you on your front passenger-side seat where a less self-reliant motorist might keep his human companion or other impractical accessory. It sits just as stoic as you, fairly radiating quiet strength. No matter what’s around the next bend, the two of you will handle it. And after the danger has passed, when you’re safely back in civilization, Vector won’t tell anyone about that moment when you got a little panicky and nearly cried. It was a fleeting instant of uncharacteristic weakness, and Vector knows that. Vector also knows that on subjects such as these, there’s no higher virtue than reticence.

The Vector Start-It looks at your cashed-out car battery like J-Dog looked at Lazarus. Its standing orders are DNR…N! ("Do Not Recusitate… NOT!) Its manufacturers claim it’s "great for cars, trucks, SUVs, boats, motorcycles, jet skis, airplanes, RVs, garden tractors, gas powered generators, tractors, or snowmobiles." So if you buy it for your moped or helicopter and it doesn’t work, that’s on you.

Features

2012 Twisted Oak Viognier, Calaveras County 750ml 2-Pack

It’s like going into a department store, and before your can say ‘Stop!’ some perky thing in a floral print blasts you with the latest from Yves St. Ralph!” Not this Viognier! Sure, you will detect hints of honeysuckle, but peaches take center stage upstairs in the Aroma Dept. Meanwhile, in the Flavor Dept. (1st floor, just past Lingerie), you’ll taste peaches along with apricot and honey flavors, finishing up with spicy acidity. Perfect for your holiday, or everyday, shopping experience!


2012 Twisted Oak Verdelho, Calaveras County 750ml

“Mandrake? You listening? Purity of Essence. That’s what this Verdelho has. You’ll never catch a Commie drinking this Verdelho. Why, Mandrake? Because it’s full of exotic tropical aromas of vanilla and fresh berries. And, it is bursting with crisp, fresh fruit flavors of tropical fruit, white pepper, and grapefruit. Mandrake, this is the purest expression of fruit from a vineyard as you will ever taste. Drink it now, like a man!”

2013 Twisted Oak Picpoul, Calaveras County 750ml

Here is a little wine you’ll want to step back and take a long look at – because if you get closer you’ll singe the hair inside of your nose. Crisp aromas of fetid swamp clash mightily with rotting wood and a playful kerosene note - and a lovely acidity best paired with the calcium deposits in your bathtub. A long satisfying finish of chemical burns down the inside of your esophagus rounds out this honey of a wine. (Sigh. This is the last time we let Uncle Fester write tasting notes...)

The actual tasting notes refer to aromas of dusty fruit, light oak, marshmallow and spice; and flavors of cinnamon, white pepper and mixed fruit.


2011 Twisted Oak, Ruben’s Blend, Calaveras County 750ml

These tasting notes are often based on the winemaker’s notes. Well, this time he told me that this blend had aromas of caramel, ripe apples, pears and butterscotch. Pears and butterscotch? You won’t find that combination in the Bath Soap Dept.! Then he goes on to mention flavors of Meyer lemons, honey, and nutmeg. Is this insane or what? Well, what I can tell you is that this blend is pretty damn yummy, and has a long creamy finish. And there is nothing wrong with a long creamy finish, I always say.


2013 Twisted Oak Vermintino, Calaveras County 750ml

Right about now you must be asking yourself “An Italian-native variety? Has Twisted Oak lost their minds?” While it’s true we are known for our wines made from grapes native to Spain, Portugal, and the Rhône Valley, if you will for a moment take a little trip west over the Alps, you’ll discover this stuff growing all over the Languedoc region, where it is commonly known as Rolle. So there.

The tasting notes include aromas of grapefruit, mixed tropical fruit with spice; with flavors of honey, grapefruit and Meyer lemons.

Winery Details

Twisted Oak Winery

Owner:
Jeff and Mary Stai
Founded:
2004
Location:
Murphys, CA

We’re often asked what the background of Twisted Oak is, to which we invariably reply, “The Sierra Nevada, of course!” If we are pressed further, we are forced to admit that Twisted Oak Winery is the culmination of a delusion, er, vision by Jeff and Mary Stai. The vision was of a terroir based winery making superior, hand crafted, yummy wines, and then having more Twisted fun than anyone in the industry selling them.

Jeff and Mary found 120 acres just outside Murphys in the Sierra Foothills at nearly 2000 feet elevation. It is there that they planted 10 acres of vineyards in Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, and Garnacha to take advantage of the continental Mediterranean soil types and climate. It is on top of this property, with an amazing view of the Sierras, where the state-of-the-art, no-pumpover, four-level gravity flow winery was built. When completed in 2004 it included open tank, stainless steel fermenters along with our own 300-foot barrel cave. This is all under the watchful eye of a 350 year old California Blue Oak tree that not only is our namesake, but also adorns every Twisted Oak bottle.

Jeff and Mary work closely with winemaker Scott Klann in crafting the Twisted Oak wines. Scott has been in the wine making business over 15 years. Scott’s knowledge of what works best is unmatched in the area (it doesn’t hurt that he was raised in Murphys.) Scott’s experience and personal relationships with the growers in Calaveras County allows Twisted Oak Winery to purchase the best fruit from these outstanding vineyards to complement our estate grape programs. Whatever the formula Jeff, Mary and Scott, have devised for Twisted Oak, it has been validated by the hundreds of consumers that buy us out of wine each and every year. Twisted Oak Winery has also received accolades by publications and competitions which have graced us with many scores of 90 or above. We think the Wine Enthusiast put it best “The gang at Twisted Oak Winery are taking winemaking in this area to the next level…” Cheers! And always, keep it Twisted! Twisted Oak Winery!
