Almost titled this thread BGG for winos . . .

The current all week deal from wine.woot is for a yummy looking wine called Boss Monster. As in the final beastie you need defeat to win old 8-bit games. The blurb is hysterical:

http://wine.woot.com/monday/

And the forum is almost as kooky as Chit Chat (when they're not being every bit as wine geeky as the rest of BGG is BGG-y) Don't belive me? Check out page 11 of the Boss Monster forum . . .

FWIW, I've bought some tasy tasty wines from wine.woot, and there was no way I was going pass up a half case of Sonoma Zin at this price. The best part is, this turns out to be clone of a much more expensive wine I've enjoyed in the past . . . called Mother Clone.

Cloning a clone - isn't that how the world ends?

Just what I need, another site full of excuses to order $100 worth of fun stuff that I don't need. shake

Have you tried anything else from Woot Cellars?

Oh my God. It is Wine BGG:

And who am I kidding? Dry Creek Zin with a Nintendo monster on the bottle? Screw it, I'm grabbing a case. (And this is why I've stayed away from that site ever since it went live.)

I'm telling you, people, this is the Ding & Dent Chaos in the Old World all over again.

Not Woot Cellars direct, although the consensus on the forum is that they are consistently good offerings. As I mentioned, the Boss Monster is almost certainly from the same juice that was also bottled as the 2007 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel, which was yummy.

I've bought a half dozen wine.woot offerings, and only one wasn't a slam dunk. The labrat reviews are really useful in determining what I'm going to like and what I'm not . . .

They're at it again, this time with a wine called 8-bit Vintners Player 1 . . .

Second chance, Diane?
