I’m off of Parker and Quincy. Splitting a case will get me in less trouble with the wife, so this will be good! And there was never a CO meetup on woot (at least which I saw), I think we should change that!
Sounds like a lot of us are in the same boat. Our cellar overflowed in January with Wellington, now our two offsite lockers are full and wine is again accumulating in the closets… We have a major drinking problem, we do not drink it fast enough!
I’m sure something will come up we can/will want to split 4 or 6 ways, it always does!
I was in your boat a few years ago, had an 8 bottle wine cooler and a small rack on the counter in my apartment. Picking up a case would max out the ‘cellar.’ My oh my how it has spiraled out of control… I blame woot 100%.
@knlprez I’ve had a couple bottles of the Morhardt Ridge, which are drinking well but could probably sit another year or so. I have three more bottles of it, so I’ll probably space them out over the next two years. I’m pretty new to studying wine, so take what everything I say with a grain of salt, but I’m surprised how even the 2012 zins need more time. I had a 2012 syrah last week and it was much better on the second and third day than the first.
I was lucky enough to get a 2001 Wellington zin and it was one of the best bottles I’ve had in years.
@Sonorguy I am no expert either, just trying to learn what I can! We had a bunch of the 2010 Mohrhardt ridge cabs and they are great, I think we have 6 left and trying to hang on to them. The 2010 Hulen is the same vineyard as the Mohrhardt is now I think, and those are in their sweet spot right now for me, really great wine.
I like how all of Peter’s wines age well, and it’s fun to taste the changes. The problem is they are very good young so it’s tough to hang on to them!
We should have an event where we first post inventories and then do our own swapping. I have a lot of stuff which didn’t come from woot and I suspect others do as well… Might be a fun way to try something new and not shell out a case price in doing so…
@jasisk Great idea! I have kept my inventory on a Vivino app on my phone - will spend some time to catalog and get it into cellar tracker - however I don’t have nearly the collection you do - 150 bottles of so, but not nearly the breadth you’ve got… it was fun to view it!
@knlprez@jvo@jasisk – FedEx says this should be delivered tomorrow (which probably really means I’ll have to head over to the distribution center this weekend). Y’all can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate.
It won’t let me buy another case, but I’m fine with keeping all 12 bottles from mine if CObrent wants to split with someone else, and would even grab a few from that case as well if needed. My wife didn’t want to give away too many…
