i thought all gifts during gift week will be like the one on Monday… non-alcomoholic


#4

does this also go with the singing fake elvis head sold by woot earlier?


#5

I guess gift week was a bust?

I was looking forward to picking up some presents…


#6

its awesome how fifty years later you can still put elvis’ face on any stupid thing and still triple the price. Lame .


#7

Kinda glad VT is off the list. I’d almost CERTAINLY have suckered in for at least one of these, possibly 2 (Polyphemus needs a buddy).


#8

what gave you that impressioin?

They just said “7 hints, but not 7 wines” last week.

I suspect we will see at least one more wine this week.

Can’t wait to see the tasting notes on these if anyone has any.

Having not had the Velvet Elvis, I can’t speak to it specifically… but - we have had several Graceland Cellars cab sauv’s (2003 The King, 2003 The King Limited Edition, and 2003 The King Second Edition) and have not been impressed with any of them. Of course, maybe 2003 was just a bad year?

I vaguely remember thinking a Blue Suede Chardonnay was okay, but not fantastic, and maybe I had the same reaction to a Jailhouse Red Merlot, but both of those bottles were drunk without tasting notes.

Happy Wooting.

Finally back to our woots! This bottle is produced by Graceland Cellars and sells for $69 at their site (on sale…reduced from $110).

So tempting, but I just spent $200 at Wine Library. That Chocolate Block was calling my name.
