Scott’s wines are well deserving of all the praise they get, especially his zins. I’m glad to see this offer since I missed it during the most recent Woot Off.

As RPM has put it, “This is an autobuy.”

Did you have this last night at the dinner?

Wow, just checked the gathering to see if there were any drinking notes and I’m a month off. It’s April 17th!!! I love Scott’s non-blended ZINs. I have a ton of wine and I’ve backed off most purchases. Doesn’t help when my son brings over great IPAs. So, I like the blend and the year, but I’m going to wait until I see some tasting notes on this offer. Time to hit the sack. Later.

Scott/Winery, can you honor this deal and ship to VT or NH since Woot/Amazon are (annoyingly) not playing ball lately even though it is a ship-to state of yours?

Virginia seems to have been added to the list, but it won’t go through checkout. Is that just a typo?

Thanks to stick-in-the-mud buzzkilling state legislators, wine may only be delivered to the following states:

Arizona, California, Colorado, District Of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming

What happened to North Carolina?
I’ve bought SH wines here before and they shipped here?

I just bought some SH last week!

First time Kansas has appeared in the States list for quite some time (17 months)…but it won’t let me purchase…stop teasing me!

InZinerator is banned in North Carolina due to the nefarious nature of the label. True story.

EDIT: Banned from distribution, not banned entirely, see Scott’s offer below

The states list used for this offer is outdated. Hopefully it will be corrected soon.

The old label had a superhero figure on it, and the powers that be in NC took that as marketing to kids. Thus Inzin is on the banned list for our state, despite SH being able to ship the rest of his wines here.

Yes, Scott & Jana Harvey will be hosting their annual Ohio wine dinner at The Wooster Inn on Friday, April 17th. Tickets are almost sold out according to the Inn’s newsletter I received the other day. If interested in attending, see discussion thread HERE.

As for Scott’s 2012 InZin, I have not yet tried it but have a bottle from an earlier wine club shipment. I will be out most of the day so unlikely that I will get a chance to “take one for the team” but if I do it won’t be until this evening.

InZinerator is typically a big jammy Zin, much more New World than Scott’s other wines but just as expertly crafted. It doesn’t appeal to everyone but it’s the wine that got me hooked on Zin in the first place. A little bit of his Forte (Port) gives it some sweetness on the back end but at 0.8% RS it is still a “dry” wine.

It used to be sweeter but after input from wine.wooters, Scott dialed the Forte back just a bit, so as he posted when this was up during the recent wootoff… “Wooters, this is your wine”.

Always great to back on Woot. Three times in one week. For those of you that missed the woot off, now is your chance.
We’ll honor any state that woot will not ship to, including North Carolina. We can’t distribute the InZinerator there, but I don’t see why we can not ship it direct.
Today is our open house for our new winery in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County. So Jana and I will be busy. We now have WIFI hooked up so, I’ll be getting on and answering questions throughout the day. If you find yourself in Amador County, stop in. Lots of wine, barrel tastings and vittles.

I’ve received direct shipments from woot before but I no-longer see Maryland on the approved list? What has happened? does this winery not want to participate in the Maryland program?

Congrats, hope it’s a great day! :slight_smile:

That sounds like great fun. Congrats!

As for the offer, I loaded up on this when it was up during the woot off, so I’ll probably sit out today. But as I posted in that thread, SH is always an auto buy.


[Edited to add: These are tasting notes I originally posted on the woot-off offer earlier this week.]

I found a bottle of the 2012 Inzinerator at a local Specs here in Houston a couple of months ago and grabbed it because I hadn’t had the 2012 vintage yet.

On pop-n-pour, it was incredibly tight. There was almost no perceptible fruitiness, and it smelled of very hot alcohol. The taste was also very hot, with almost none of the fruit flavors that I love in Scott’s Inzinerator.

In a highly unscientific method of oxidation, I put the cork back in the battle and stuck it in the fridge for about a week and a half. I came back to it one night when we had some friends over (actually the same friends that we had opened it with initially). I poured it for everyone without showing them the bottle, and they raved about how good it was–exactly the Inzinerator profile you expect: ripe, plummy fruits on the nose and palate, with a nice, long finish.

I believe the bottle I picked up at the store had likely just arrived, been unboxed, and shelved immediately. It reminded me of some bottles that I’ve opened too soon after shipping that were just a bit “off.” Further, the trip from Northern California to Texas in the winter can be rather jarring, temperature-wise, to a wine. But, given the time to recover from shipping, this wine shined, just like Scott’s past vintages.
