love the man, i really do, but he thinks ALL of his wines are excellent QPR. by definition. and i’d have to agree.
only place i’ve seen the brand (though not this varietal) was Costco.
Hmm … I see some prices from retailer websites, but I don’t like to use those for the price comparison. No reliability.
Did everyone survive the 7 days of Wootmas??? And whilst CJ is off on maneuvers …

wine-searcher pro lists it at $13.28 (1 store), $15.30-$15.99 (5 stores), $16.99 (2 stores), $17.99 (1 store) & $18.99 (1 store).
Here is info from their marketing company.
OT: Speaking of Costco, I picked up an Iron Horse Estate Pinot there today for $30. Not too shabby 25% off of retail.
interesting. about 1/2 sourced from Dry Creek. very interesting indeed…
What the…?? Was indulging in Murai and Momokawa saké all evening and noticed woot time approaching, saw it was a relatively inexpensive CS, pulled the trigger and whoa…first sucker?? Thought that was pretty darn awesome…
… and 33% off winery list price. not too shabby at all. such a good deal, in fact, that you may have to share your find at an upcoming CWWT!
Nice sleuthing. No pricing or ordering, though.
what am i, chopped liver?!? sheesh!!!
And the 2004 just says 60% from Alexander Valley, nothing else. Seems to change a lot year to year.
You’re up late.
What’s with all the chopped liver this week?
And no, you’re not! I stick to winery prices as that provides a fair direct comparison for each offer. Retailer sites can be notoriously inaccurate, misleading, and questionable.
From the prices you provided, though, w.w clearly has the lowest price (even after woot shipping).
no long-term contracts with third-party growers then? interesting. would love to hear from our friends at GunBun 'bout their strategy for this nascent value-oriented label.
I always am and you usually aren’t. Nite.
Very interesting. Probably just a fun project to play with. Oh and if they made a 2005 it’s probably not released yet, so I shouldn’t say they didn’t make any more unless they say so.
From the pdf here the fact sheet is signed by Jeff Bundschu. Not that I guess that is news, but might add confirmation for someone on the fence.
that’s what this is about? i commend you on testing this hypothesis week in & week out if for nothing else than to enlighten the unenlightened. AFAIC, however, this is an established & fundamental law of physics. trying to disprove it is as futile as trying to disprove gravity. but (silly though it may be on the part of whoever tries to do so) YMMCV.
Some aspire to greatness; some have greatness thrust upon them. Congratulations!
I love the timing of this offering. We’re all broke from gift week, the stupid economy and the upcoming holidays, and WineDavid offers us an inexpensive, daily drinking cab. Dude, your marketing skills rock da house.
