Where am I going to store that for 15 years??


#4

That’s a big boy. If I were in charge of wine for my family’s Xmas party and had a couple extra hundred bucks lying around I would be all over this.


#5

I could be wrong, but I think a double magnum is equivalent to 4 750ml bottles. When you open that puppy you’d better have company or be very, very thirsty.


#6

The only friend you need to drink this sexy maiden is mathematics.

3 liters = 3,000 ml
29.573 ml per oz
3,000 / 29.573 = ~101 oz
Average hours spent awake per day = 16
101 oz / 16 = ~6 oz

So awaken at 6 AM, nurse a 6 oz glass, and enjoy a 6 oz glass every hour on the hour through 9 PM. In bed by 10, not too shabby!

Average hours spent asleep the day after drinking in this manner: 36…


#7

Your math is correct. If you’re a home winemaker (or someone with bottling gear), you can rebottle a magnum or double leftovers into bottles…


#8

Your logic here makes me so happy that I wish I had the spare $200 to try it out.


#9

If there was an option to buy four mini-magnums I’d be awaiting my shipment . . .


#10

Woot. Off. Killer.

Seriously, though, would be tempted to do this if I didn’t already buy 1) the Jana 3L Woot! Plus offering, and 2) the regular sized Atlas Peak offering the other day. I also have no justification for this size at all. Alas, will pass. Sigh.


#11

Quality.


#12

A great year, some really fine Cabernet. Anyone got a young daughters who might be getting married in 10-15 years? Or a silver/golden/diamond anniversary for a parent/self?

This is a wonderful, joyous (if not inexpensive in absolute terms) offering.

I can’t say “autobuy”, but I can (and do) certainly say “Buy if you possibly can!”


#13

But, which one?


#14

This is such an awesome offering.


#15

Sounds like a great wine but seriously, as someone mentioned, where in the heck would I cellar this for 12-15 years considering the size of the bottles.

I’d almost have to find a small wine cooler just for this … [sneaks onto Craigslist to just check mind you :)]


#16

Dear woot and friends,

I’m no expert, but I believe there may be a more correct technical term for the 3 liter bottle size. Wouldn’t it be a Jeroboam? Double magnum is when I’m double fisting 1.5L vueve cliquot bottles at new years.

Just offering my humble insight, woot! Usually by 7 am someone has beat me to it!


#17

I know many of you are fans of Ty Caton that is often sold here on wine.woot. I thought I’d mention that his Cabernet is on WTSO for $19.99 a bottle and free shipping on 4+ bottles. You could get that AND this one and really have a wine tasting party.

I fixed that for you.


#19

I’m a sucker for big bottles. Grabbed a Howell and Mount Veeder.


#20

I ALWAYS do that! It is like my fingers can’t type Caton and MUST type the ‘N’. Thanks…I fixed it in the original. :slight_smile:
