I can assure you that this wine is Most Awesome, even though I’ve never tasted it, because I live in El Dorado County, where Awesome is the new grey.
I bought this last time around and absolutely love it. Don’t have specific notes but I recall thoroughly enjoying the wine and purchasing again.
I got at least one bad bottle last time.
Which happens and is a complete bummer.
Note to self : try wine before planning to serve w/ meal.
I gave one bottle away. Hope it’s ok.
Haven’t had the courage to open another. Maybe this listing will be the impetus I need. Tomorrow ? er later today that is.
I’ll get back and let you know.
I hate to bring this up but this exact wine was on Invino last week for $14.99/bottle with FS on purchase over $50.00 making it around $65 for 4 shipped to SoCal vs this offer ($ 78 shipped)…big difference. I was very tempted. then but dont purchase much on there so held back. I know WD will make this right.
i’m on it. stay tuned.
Sorry to those that had bad bottles. I just had to bottles of the 2007 from the same vineyard.They were drinking beautifully.
Thanks for joining us on the first Sunday of football!
Do you get a free membership to CalStar when you buy the wine?
This is tasty juice! Nice balanced Zin from the foothills, none of that fruit-bomb stuff here. I haven’t tasted this one in a while, but I quit enjoyed it last time I did.
Thanks. This is why I purchase the majority of my vino on WW.
WD has lowered the price to $58.99. Now let’s show him some gratitude by making this wine sell out! Who’s with me?
Small print: If you already purchased, money will come flying back into your pockets soonish.
Wow, now that’s service. Glad to see El Dorado represented. It’s a fun little AVA. May have to jump in on this one.
Thanks! why I like working with El Dorado fruit. Nice ripe tannins to balance the fruit, and due to the lower temps more flavor w/o the alcohol (or stuck ferment)
Thank you for the price adjustment. I have really enjoyed this wine from past offers. Sorry I don’t have detailed tasting notes, but as a lover of Zins, I have definitely enjoyed this one!
Buy moar wine.
Thank you . It didn’t work out for me to try another bottle tonight. I guess the next time you come by w/ some fine libation I will let you know how it turned out.
