Definitely think it’s some kind of Rose based on the weather related comment. Not sure why CorTot jumped on Ped so quickly, maybe their 2018 Rose was just released? As RJ implies, the “like” from WD usually indicates a correct guess.
@karenhynes@Winedavid49 Mathis was Ravenswood, too, wasn’t he? Maybe somebody else related to Joel Peterson? Once & Future would be great, but I seriously doubt that’s happening. Ditto Bedrock.
Peter Mathis also said this is his “old school” project, so I wonder if he’s got a new one going. I couldn’t find anything obvious about it.
Ha! And here I mentioned just yesterday that the first instinct is often the best and my first thought tonight was Primrose Lane before I started getting cute looking up botanical info on primroses.
SH’s Superhero label on the InZinerator were banned as well for being thought “targeted to underage drinkers”, IIRC. Because you know, Super Hero images on wine labels are the primary consideration for underage drinking.
compass points; good and likely clue.
If it weren’t for the ‘summer’ comment, I could go with Fossil Point.
For no good reason at all, I could hope for some Anne Amie.
Ironically, I don’t get the emails. I think because one time I ordered from Clark’s website and paid with PayPal using a PP specific email address. Then all email from WineSmith (including emails about rat bottles) started going to that address which I do not really monitor. I made a comment about it after missing a delivery and ever since then I am alerted to rat bottles via my preferred email address but the offer preview emails have ceased entirely. Weird…
I’m going with Karen on this - Cougar Crest appeared on wine.woot in the past and of course Courtney Cox starred in the TV show Cougar Town. As an aside, my wife and I visited their tasting room in Woodinville, WA on our honeymoon.
Thinking further outside the box:
Niagara icewine (happened once on the old site)
German Riesling or anything from Alsace - never before done for the region iirc. Those are tall and (relatively) skinny bottles.
Yeah. I know. But it rhymes.
Actually, quite a few of them are mailing/allocation list only. I need to save my $$ for the Selyem fall offers. I got the warning e-mail early this week…
Erin E Wines was offered some time ago at the old site. I’m not sure it still exists. I can’t get the site to open. Sounds like Erin was most recently consulting with Martinelli and Ehret.
I’m off to meet a friend for dinner.
Will check back later if I’m not too late.
@jmdavidson1@karenhynes I was trying to figure it out also, and I left it to the fates. If there was still stock remaining today I was in. So I’m out this time. Looking forward to finding out what it was though. Is Del Dotto really that well known around the world? I was thinking maybe the Montelena non-estate or something of the sort.
I thought about Ch. Montelena based on their most (world) famous comment, but I’m not sure they have a cab in that price range. I could be wrong. Most of the other potential contenders for most famous don’t either.
@MarkDaSpark@Winedavid49 The Enz vineyard makes some excellent wines. The Sabroso was excellent (but it’s either Gros Verdot or Cabernet Pfeffer, not a red blend).
WD, you get some Enz Vineyard Mourvedre here and I’m in!
