I like the combo cooperage. Not too much new oak to keep the price down but still enough to add character.


#5

The last Syrah I had from the Dry Creek Valley was from Verge, which I loved.

So its a bummer than I can’t bear to order this.
Maybe it’ll come around in a woot-off.


#6

Humanitas? Liver and fava beans anyone?


#7

Agreed, I’d be in for one but I don’t trust the dog sitter with my wine while I am away.


#8

…and a nice Chianti…


#9

been looking for some syrah…this might be it.
gonna wait and see some notes from winery hopefully and some more info from the ww community.

bahwm, mewalk, and I visited Michel-Schlumberger last October. The winery, the treatment by the staff in the tasting room (actually a gorgeous outdoor courtyard), and the wines were all stunning. I couldn’t resist joining their wine club, and they have yet to disappoint. Knowing they had a hand in this wine, I’m going to have to buy some, but I’d better wait until SWMBO wakes up to find out how much.


#11

Now, that would make one heckofa label!

Hi – Judd Wallenbrock here – owner/founder of Humanitas. I’m looking forward to answering questions & helping Wooters make the ‘right’ decision to buy this unbelievable offer!


#13

When I first saw the thumbnail for this deal while on regular.woot, I thought to myself “why are they selling a freaky alien tribal mask over at wine.woot”.

Ok, guys, you made me look, you happy now?


#14

Judd Wallenbrock - Humanitas proprietor here – thanks – the Syrah seems to love American oak over French when new but a little ‘seasoned’ French adds some texture to the wine.


#15

Judd - what is the drinking widow on these wines - are they ready now or need a while to reach their peak ? Also any suugested food pairings ?


#16

This is a beefy wine – I think it will age 10 years easily. But the fruit is so explosive that I hate to wait! It is mountain fruit with ample structure so aging is not an issue. Food: grab yourself a pepperoni pizza (!) or if going a bit higher end, a lamb shank & slow bbq it. I think it hits the spot with lots of bbq items – I serve it with tri-tip & beans Santa Maria-style. It really is quite versatile.


#17

I second the Verge. That was one of my favorite Woot purchases ever. I ended up buying a case of it directly from them since it didn’t seem to reappear on Woot.


#18

Ok, not fair, now you are making me hungry! :slight_smile:


#19

Hi Judd, welcome!
I think it’s great that you give your profits to charity. I’m surprised no one has asked yet, but do you have pH and TA numbers for this Syrah? Thanks!


#20

Interesting! I’ve only had lamb shank braised. Do you slow smoke it for 2-3 hours?
