Had this in Detroit and thought it was good but no real notes taken. I have a bottle of it sitting in front of me… will open it this evening.
I guessed the 88%!!! I can haz rat?!!? :happy:
And I’m in for a case! WOOT!!!
When do we start with the summer shipping? Denver has been in the 90s for the past week…
oh, and avail to rat, in case the woot gods smile down on this poor soul.
Time to count the change in the couch…
Congrats ww/wd on another woot cellar offer!
How do you get to be a rat? I would love to try it for this one in particular…

In for one, although I’ll probably wish I was in for more.
In for 2 (seriously this time!). Can I labrat please?
Wine characteristics FYI:
“The grape is noted for its distinctive aroma, very similar to that of Viognier, Gewurztraminer, and Petit Manseng, suggesting apricot and peach. The wine produced is unusually light, and generally high in acidity with alcohol levels of 11.5–12.5%. Its thick skins and large number of pips can cause residual bitterness.”
I did Idaho proud; look how bright it shines.
Gah not going to be in buffalo to be able to rat. So now the Detroit/wannabe detroit wooters can comment on the taste. I’m probably going to get it just for the label alone, but would be nice if the wine is good as well.
In for 2! Would love for this to be my first lab rat report!
edit I was selected to be a Lab Rat! Since I have a post on the first_page of comments, I’ll use this post for my Rat report. Watch this space!
edit2 By coincidence, I’m working from home today. It’s a bit distracting to hear cars drive by. I’m hoping its the FedEx guy!
edit3 Wine is here! Thank you WineWoot overlords for allowing this to be my first Rat Report! Wine.Woot has introduced me to the beauty of wine, and now its becoming a hobby that I take great pleasure in.
On to the report!
I put it in the fridge to cool, and walked away for about 30 seconds. Patience? Patience? I don’t have to show you any stinking patience!
The Rhino has a lovely, very pale color. Slightly more pale than the Triacipedis
Now for a sniff!
First impression, peach! I didn’t want to take my nose out of the glass. This boquet made me think of porch-swings, Georgia summers, wicker chairs in the shade. I cant wait to taste!
First taste, very light, nice acidity that goes all the way up to the top of your gums. Less peach in the mouth, but still pleasantly fruity. I’m definately looking forward to my next glass after it has chilled!
Unfortunately there is a beef goulash simmering away in the crockpot, not the best pairing probably, but I’ll try it anyway this evening and be back with more!
I’m thinking a Gouda appetizer may just hit the spot!
More to come this evening!
More wine chilled with dinner. Hottie McFinestuff (My beautiful spouse) tried some and said “Grapes! Ooh! That’s fabulous!” I can usually watch her face and she if she really likes a wine, or is just being nice because I liked it. She made no stink eye, and seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.
She also commented that it seemed “sweet”, so she did the nose-plugged sip test, and decided it was just fruity, not sweet.
Since I was going to have a pretty heavy goulash for dinner, I tried it first with a bit of cheese. Gouda was a bit too mellow. I think a nice sharp cheddar would be great with this wine.
Even with the goulash, this wine was enjoyable! I’m happy that I ordered a case. I’m looking forward to using a bottle or two in a tropical sangria, and enjoying the rest as is!
Thanks again Woot!
I am looking to try some new wines I usually drink Resiling is this a sweet wine?
In for 6!
I’m moving in 8 days so I put in the address for the new place…so I guess I’m not able to rat…unless you pick my current (billing address). I just figure the shipment won’t arrive until I’m at the new place. Looking forward to another woot cellars wine!
medium alcohol, dry, low pH, with a Riesling chaser. I’m detecting an easy-drinking nicely quaffable summer plonk!
Monterey County. So who made this stuff, and will it actually taste any good? I’ve heard mixed reports of the cellars, but WD’s tastebuds are reputedly fairly sound.
I’m in, but unavailable for rattage this week. (Haven’t been picked yet as a labrat, but just in case this was my lucky week…)
With how good the Woot wines are I so want to go in for two, however, I have no idea how I’m going to go through 12 bottles of wine.
The couple Woot Cellars that I did not buy I regretted so I’m in for 1 despite the fact that I’m not quite sure what it is I just bought. I’ve never been a rat before…
WTH, I’m in.
