Fly As In Soar, Not Fly As In Beautiful

We could make a joke about this G being from the streets but then you'd never respect us again, so instead we'll just say that Phat Goose is a good holiday gift. Fair enough?

Maybe there was a time when we could say "Yo, this Goose is dizzle-ope!" and get away with it, but those days ended when we left college. Probably before we left college, but we were young and stupid, so we never noticed. And today, we're grown men and women. And we know that talking like "the kids" is a very bad idea.

So we're not going to phocus on the label of this Phat Goose- GET IT? BECAUSE OF all right, see, that's the very thing we were trying to avoid. "Phat Goose" is clever and amusing, but us talking about Phat Goose? Super lame. Super DUPER lame.

So, instead, we'll focus on how this 5-pack comes with four Wine.Woot Gift Bags. We'll focus on how this vintage was specially made for Wine.Woot with a mix of Grenache and Syrah and Mourvedre. We'll focus on the berry and spice and structure and resist the temptation to make a joke about The Fat Boys. Remember them? The Fat Boys? They were fat, but they rapped about it! And, truthfully, they weren't even that fat by today's standards. Really, go check out their first record, they were like a Wal-Mart small.

We'll make you a deal: buy this Phat Goose holiday pack, and we'll never make a joke that involves the words "cheddar" or "Benjamins." Not even once. Okay? Okay.

Includes Wine.Woot Gift Bag 4-Pack

2011 Woot Cellars Phat Goose Red Blend, Central Coast 750ml 5-Pack

A blend specially made for Woot!  This Southern Rhone-inspired blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre showcases the best of these varietals from California's Central Coast. Grenache brings berry and spice notes to the mix while Syrah provides color and tannins and Mourvedre adds acidity and structure.
       
With more Syrah, this wine’s deeper indigo color hints at its ripe blackberry aromas and core flavor of dark fruits with a note of black pepper.  A sip reveals a balance of strong acidity and fine grain tannins supported by undertones of spice and blueberries.

The dry finish leaves the slightest hint of vanilla on the palate.  The harmonious balance of fruit, tannin and acidity makes this the friendliest and most versatile of food wines. The vibrant flavors would be well-matched with rosemary-rubbed grilled pork tenderloin or GSM-marinated tri-tip steak with leek bread pudding.

Winery Details

Hahn Estates

Founded:
1980
Owners:
Nicolaus and Gaby Hahn
Location:
Monterey County, CA
The spectacular beauty of California's central coast is probably the best-known region in all of California for its unique lifestyle. Monterey County's dramatic ocean scenery, historic communities, artistic culture, verdant pine forests, and bountiful agriculture have beckoned adventure-seekers, seafarers, artists, writers and vacationers for over 100 years. And the 99 miles of breathtaking Pacific coastline is something no other California county can boast.
 
With an inspiration to raise Monterey wines to the highest level, the wines of Hahn Estates are created with a philosophy that all great wines are special – akin to the region they were grown in. The Hahn wines celebrate everything that is Monterey – unique in thought, style and setting. In the mid-1970’s, Nicolaus “Nicky” Hahn and his wife, Gaby, bought two ranches –turned –vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, in the renowned Monterey County appellation on California’s Central Coast.  They produced their first wines in 1980.  As we mark our 30th anniversary, the Hahns now own about 1,000 acres in Monterey County, with half in the Santa Lucia Highlands.  Hahn Family Wines produces eight brands: Hahn Winery, Smith & Hook, Hahn SLH Estate, Cycles Gladiator, Huntington, Lucienne, BIN 36, and Copa del Rey.
