Is 4 years enough time on these? This looks like a real husky red that may need to be mellowed out somewhat.

happy wine.woot upgrades, i am happy we’re getting deals m-f :smiley:



Darn it, Merlot, not the Zin! Don’t remember this on the rpm tour. Had anyone tasted it?

So how long do we have to buy this?

Like the pH, like the ABV, and love this statement: “The fruit is spot-on ripe, with neither any greenness nor raisin.”

Five deals a week? So much for anticipation. Oh well. Why does woot change ‘lam e’ to harshing my mellow?

Peter, is this the same as the Merlot in the February wine club shipment?

Barely beaten, no doubt. I have quite a dearth of Merlot at the moment, and if this is only half as good as Welligton’s Syrah, then it will still blow my socks off. In for one - a great deal, surely, but eight bottles just seems excessive. :tongue:

I’m sad I won’t have a chance to Rat, though, for the first Monday offering in a while I’ve been able to make a quick decision on. :frowning:

24 hours. Buy quick sucka! But make sure you can cover all your debts. :wink:

Cesare, the picture doesn’t say Estate Bottled, are you sure it isn’t this?


I think the 2007’s for this were a lot better, but there is something to be said about 2006. Coming out at less than $13 a bottle is pretty great too.

What’s the barrel regime for this wine (new/used, Fr/Am, total time, etc.)?

I would guess so, the release date at the bottom of the writeup says February 10’

In for one. I’d be happy to rat.

Yep, just a reminder that Wine.Woot is now 5 days a week! So you only have until midnight tonight to make those hard decisions.

I am trusting that this will be a very good value. And I am really short on Merlot right now

What is the new labrat policy?

Ratting has changed as well now.

Here’s a copy of the letter that went out to Wine customers this last week. It explains it all.
