2013 Merry Edwards "Coopersmith" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2013 Merry Edwards "Coopersmith" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (96WE, 92RP, 91CG). Wine Enthusiast: "From Laguna Ridge Vineyard, which surrounds the producer's winery, this bottling begs to be explored. It's beguiling from the beginning, with unexpected shots of soy, corn nuts and gamy charcuterie. Big, structured tannins support juicy flavors of black cherry and raspberry, resulting in a complex, velvety mouthfeel. Flourishes of dark chocolate and cardamom tease on the finish. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (06/2016)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Kistler "Stone Flat Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (94RP, 94ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Orange blossoms, nectarines, mint and white flowers all make an appearance in the 2010 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard. Hints of graphite, ash and crushed rocks give the Stone Flat an element of minerality and pure tension that is highly appealing. The 2010 is at once rich yet weightless, especially on the finish, where the wine turns quite delicate and feminine. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)" (04/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95VN, 94WE, 93WS, 92CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as impressive is the 2005 Cabernet Reserve, a blend of 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4.5 % Petit Verdot, in this case sourced 58% from Sonoma County and 42% from Napa. Its 14.5% alcohol is slightly lower than its sibling’s. This full-bodied wine is very concentrated, with a saturated bluish/purple color and a classic nose of mocha and espresso intermixed with crème de cassis and charcoal. The finish is a good 40-45 seconds, and the wine has a remarkable vibrancy and freshness from the vintage’s acidity. This is terrific stuff to drink now and over the next 12-15 years.

Of the 2012 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2012 Syrah Broken Stones is a beauty. Made from 79% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah and the rest Grenache, Mourvedre and Roussanne, it offers up full-bodied, decadent, yet incredibly pure notes of creme de cassis, smoked earth, pepper and violets.

2012 Sine Qua Non "Stein" Central Coast Grenache
Bid on this bottle of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Stein" Central Coast Grenache (97RP, (95-97VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting with the Grenache release, the 2012 Grenache Stein is a blend of 76% Grenache, 16% Syrah, and 8% Mourvedre, aged in 14% new French oak (15% was in concrete), that comes mostly from the estate's Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, but also includes grapes from the Cumulus, Third Twin (Syrah) and Bien Nacido vineyards. Checking in at 15.7% alcohol, it's no lightweight, yet it has considerable elegance in its sweet blackcurrants, white pepper, licorice, baking spices and hints of violet-like aromas and flavors. Possessing the hallmark purity of the estate, it's full-bodied, concentrated, rich and textured, with sweet tannin barely noticeable on the finish. I don't think it's one of the greatest Grenaches from the estate, yet it's still an incredible effort that will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years or more of overall longe

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the limestone soils of Paso Robles, the 2006 Zinfandel Pesenti is a beauty. The limestone seems to give Zinfandels in that area acidity, vibrancy, and aromatic personalities, but without sacrificing the intrinsic richness and intensity from low yields. This wine boasts fabulous briery, blackberry, and cherry fruit, a crushed rock note, and a long, heady finish. (RP)" (12/2007)

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in new barrels, it offers incredible notes of blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil shavings and crushed rocks in a full-bodied, decadent, insanely layered and seamless style.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the high density plantings done by the team at Rhys (it's also a cellar selection as well), the 2014 Pinot Noir Porcupine Hill Bearwallow Vineyard is another best to date cuvee and is easily the most concentrated and lengthy of the three cuvees from this site. Black raspberries, black cherries, tons of minerality and ground herbs emerge from this young, tight and beautifully focused red that needs 3-4 years of cellaring and will drink beautifully over the following decade or more.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better is the 507-case cuvee of 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac. One of the wines of the vintage, this dark ruby/purple-tinged effort possesses great intensity along with a full-bodied mouthfeel and almost over-the-top levels of licorice-infused kirsch liqueur and raspberries. Spicy, peppery and earthy with lavish glycerin as well as richness, this is an amazing 2009 that is already drinking beautifully given the precociousness of the vintage. It should evolve for 15 years or more. (RP)" (10/2011)

From winemaker Charles Thomas: "A fresh floral, violet aroma mingles with plum and currant in the nose. On entry, the wine is supple with pleasing richness and density that leads through the midpalate. Warm clove spice, sassafras, and a touch of vanilla complement nuances of toast to deliver a complex mix of flavors and texture in the mouth.

With his serious insider knowledge, which gives him access to some great sources that other producers somehow have missed, he seems to magically transform his wines into personality-filled, savory, intensely flavored efforts, many of them truly world-class in quality. He’s been on a fabulous roll for the last five or six years, reaching his pinnacle of success, maybe even greatness, with his 2012s and 2013s.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "La Forest" (92BH, 91RP, 91ST, 90WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "(opened from personal storage). As one might reasonably expect from the large format bottle, this is evolving very slowly but positively as the complex, cool and restrained nose screams Chablis, in fact it would be very difficult to miss identifying this as such if tasted blind. There is excellent minerality to the still moderately tight, energetic and beautifully precise middle weight flavors that offer excellent depth on the lingering and slightly salty finish. I have upgraded my score slightly because while it may not catch the Dauvissat grands crus (see recent notes herein), it's very close. I have not tasted this recently from 750 ml but I would guess that it would be close to ready but in magnum format, it will require another 3 to 5 years before reaching it apogee." (08/2013)

1987 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1987 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96JG, 90RP). John Gilman: "The 1987 Martha’s Vineyard hails back to the time when the labels stated 13.5 percent alcohol, and in this most recent vertical tasting of the wine, one did get a strong sense that this vintage and earlier were indeed just a tad less ripe than subsequent vintages. This slightly lower octane seems to allow an even stronger signature of soil to infuse the wines. The 1987 Martha’s is a great, great wine that seems to have been lost a bit in the shuffle when it was released, as it followed on the heels of the specially labeled 1985. The bouquet is deep and absolutely stunning, as it delivers a complex blend of black cherries, mint, a touch of chocolate, Rutherford dust, pretty mineral tones and an exotic topnote of allspice. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure and transparent, with a seamless attack, a sappy core, and great length and grip on th

A blend of 85% Grenache with the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and small dollops of the other authorized varietals, this wine tends to come from the estate’s holdings in the eastern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape. The opaque purple-colored 2009 exhibits magnificent, rich berry fruit intertwined with cedar, Christmas fruitcake, licorice, charcuterie, roasted meats, smoked duck, kirsch, blackberries and god knows what else. It is an amazingly complex, rich, full-throttle wine that reminds me somewhat of what the 1990 tasted like in 1994/1995. It is a magnificent Chateauneuf du Pape.

A touch of spring flowers, intermixed with crème de cassis, licorice, lead-pencil shavings and cedar, are all present in this wine of great intensity and full-bodied power, but with an elegance and finesse that, again, similarly suggests a Château Margaux made in St. Helena.

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 97VN, 97WE, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A resoundingly great effort from this iconic producer, Ridge's 2001 is a spectacular, still young but promising wine...A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by extravagant, generous aromas of pen ink, lead pencil shavings, spice box and black fruits. The wine is full-bodied and silky textured, but secondary nuances have not yet begun to develop as it is still very primary, tasting more like a 3-4 year old Monte Bello than one that is ten years of age. Nevertheless, it reveals spectacular concentration, a voluptuous texture, a rare opulence for a Ridge Monte Bello, and an incredible finish. The upside is enormous and this cuvee may prove somewhat atypical due to the huge percentage of Merlot in the final blend and the higher than normal alcohol. (RP)" (06/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Aubert "UV-SL Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (96VN, 94RP, 94WS). Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard is the most opulent and extroverted of these Pinots, but it is also the most compelling. Endowed with huge fruit, and an explosive mid-palate, the UV-SL captures the very best of this style of Pinot. Layers of dark, inky fruit built to a crescendo of intensity and juiciness. Hints of lavender, spices and violets wrap around the finish, with plenty of support from beams of underlying tannin. (AG)" (01/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Morlet "Coup de Coeur" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (96RP, 94ST, (89-91VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a selection of the best lots in the cellar, the 2011 Chardonnay Coup de Coeur is a rich, full-bodied white made from an Old Wente clone. Even richer, fuller and more prodigious than the Ma Princesse, it should age easily for 5-7 years as well. (RP)" (12/2013)

2010 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Beaucastel" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2010 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Beaucastel" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L) ((93-95JD), 94RP, 92ST, 90WE). Jeb Dunnuck: "Firm, structured, and showing the coolness of the vintage beautifully, the 2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel (45% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and 4% Counoise) is a fresh, focused, and balanced red that has loads of crushed berry like fruit, licorice, sappy underbrush, and floral nuances, as well as superb underlying minerality, all emerging from the glass. Quite tight and firm on the palate, with excellent purity, juicy acidity, and a youthful, energetic feel, this will most likely require 3-5 years of bottle age once released, and have 15+ years of total longevity.

1984 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1984 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine's strikingly dark ruby/plum/purple color belies its nearly 30 years of age. Abundant red and black currant fruit notes intermixed with notions of incense, truffles, underbrush and forest floor emerge from this full-bodied, dense, rich Insignia. It still appears capable of further nuances and development, which is hard to believe given its age. An impressive underlying vibrancy and focus are found in this still young Napa red. This year enjoyed a more normal Napa spring weather-wise, with warm temperatures interspersed with hot periods throughout the summer, and an early harvest. The 1984 Insignia is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc (30% of the fruit from estate vineyards and 70% from growers), and for the first time in a number of years the barrel regime was shortened to 11 months.

Wine Enthusiast: "Delicious aromas cover the entire range of the strawberry experience, from the scents of a blossoming strawberry field to frozen berries macerated into a syrup. It’s refreshing and yet grippy on the palate at the same time, with candied raspberry and crushed vanilla bean swirling with bergamot rind, anise, black pepper and pine sap. Imagine mint-wrapped berries on a fresh-cut plank of oak. (MK)" (06/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Donum "Estate Grown" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (93CG). Connoisseurs Guide: "One of three distinctive, high-achieving Pinots from Donum and a wine that teases with uncommon touches of orange rind and bit of flowery sweetness in its mildly raspberry-like nose, this one follows with very deep flavors that are rife with ripe, black cherry fruit. It is keenly varietal in its wonderfully silky feel, and, while wanting for nothing in the way of substance and volume, it is a lively, very well-balanced offering of fine brightness, balance and terrific fruity length. It is withal a complex and compelling effort with a sense of quiet strength that bodes well for age, and we fully expect that it will become more and more interesting over the next half-dozen years. *Two Stars*" (06/2017)

Harlan Pinot Noir,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "A deep, masculine effort that spent 16 months in 30% new French oak, the 2010 Pinot Noir de Villiers Vineyard dishes out serious amounts of earthy black fruits, wild strawberries, sappy underbrush and floral qualities on the nose. This is followed up by a medium to full-bodied, supple and gorgeously textured effort that has no hard edges and blockbuster length. It has a core of sweet fruit and is certainly enjoyable now, yet it should age effortlessly for 10-12. Open, voluptuous and sexy efforts, these all benefitted from substantial air time and gained richness and depth over the evening. They’re brilliant Pinot Noirs. (JD)" (08/201
