Is there any additional information available on this wine? It would be great to know what varieties of grapes were used.
(Yes, I know it says “proprietary” but it would still be helpful… I’m not asking for percentages)
Woot, you know I love you, but this isn’t a great or even good deal. It took me a few seconds to find this for a price less than $10/bottle.
Found the site you were most likely looking at.
$39.96 for 4 bottles
$20.10 for shipping
Folks on CellarTracker rated this below 85, and 25% of people didn’t like it. So caveat emptor. I haven’t tried it myself so don’t have an opinion as to its quality.
I forget not everyone has the “free” shipping at the other place.
And I forgot wine.woot has free shipping.
I’ll take your boom! and sit in the corner for 15 minutes
(55% Zinfandel, 27% Petite Sirah, 11% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon; 14.3% alcohol)
Non-vintage/multi-vintage I take it?
LOL @ that “list price.” I will pass on this robot’s bathwater.
Something like, better to be Lucky than good.
Normally I am disappointed when my state isn’t on the list. Lately, I have been OK with it as a lot of offers have been not received enthusiastically by my fellow wooters. Take away the temptation and my cellar doesn’t overfill with “worth a gamble” wines.
I am intrigued by Woot’s disclaimer about to which states wine can be delivered - sometimes wine can be delivered to New Jersey and sometimes not. Does it depend on the origin of the wine or some other criteria?
Each winery must pay for a license to ship into each state. If they don’t have the license, the wine can’t ship there.
Perhaps it’s time for a change in the disclaimer, hopefully would eliminate the daily postings of “my state isn’t on the list but I’ve gotten wine before…”
Thanks to stick-in-the-mud buzzkilling state legislators, wine may only be delivered to the following states which winery is licensed to ship. If you’re state is not on the list the individual winery does not have a license to ship through woot to your state:
Hi davetroup, It’s winemaker Derek Rohlffs. There are only a few reviews of my Lucky wine on CellarTracker. Check out Vivino for over 40 reviews here: https://www.vivino.com/wineries/lucky-163500/wines/proprietary-red-wine-9999 Cheers!
Yes, kaolis, this is a multi-vintage wine…allows me even more options to blend together to make the best possible finished wine. Thanks for your interest!
Hi ryancorlew. Owner Derek Rohlffs here to assure you that I sell Lucky Red Wine for $24 at my winery…and we sell a lot of it at that price.
Derek Rohlffs, winery owner and winemaker, here to share some more info about my Lucky Red wine.
The Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel form the foundation of this red blend, providing dark fruit flavors, a plush mouthfeel, and spicy notes. Petite Sirah represents a small fraction of the blend, yet its firm tannins and balanced acids provide much in the way of the structure of Lucky. Aging primarily in French oak barrels gives Lucky texture uncommon for wines in its category, many of which are aged in tanks with oak chips. This is my best-selling red wine and is made and bottled at my Treasure Island winery in San Francisco.
Vinification: Combination of open top and tank fermented lots, aged mostly in neutral French oak, some for one year and others for up to three years before assemblage. Aged for an additional six months in bottle before release.
My Tasting Notes: Dark ruby red color with purple tinges at the rim. A bold wine, opening up with aromas and flavors of dark cherry fruit, mocha, and berries that are layered with a subtle smokiness. The wine has a round and rich palate, delivering full-bodied fruit flavors [both red and black fruit character]. A hint of brown spice combines with a lush texture to leave a complex and nuanced final impression.
I hope you enjoy my Lucky Red!
Thanks for the notes Derek, they are very helpful and the wine sounds tasty! Can you discus a little about where the fruit is coming from? AVA’s? vineyards?
