2014 Cirq "Treehouse Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Cirq "Treehouse Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (94VN, 92WS). Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Treehouse is more typical of the Russian River in its boisterous, racy personality and dark fruit profile. Black cherry, cola, spice and menthol are some of the many notes that flesh out in this ample, resonant Pinot. Richly textured and phenolic in feel, the Treehouse is another winner from CIRQ and proprietor Michael Browne. (AG)" (08/2017)

1993 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1993 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Montelena produces two cuvees of Cabernet. The estate Cabernet Sauvignons, Montelena's flagship wines, have been remarkably consistent. From fruit grown in their Calistoga vineyards, which are dry farmed (non-irrigated), approximately 10,000 cases of this wine are estate-bottled each year. It is hard to find less than a stellar vintage. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (the current release) possesses the most aggressive tannin of the 1993-1996 Estate Cabernets. It is a weighty, hefty, powerful wine, with a dense purple color, ripe, sweet black fruit flavors, considerable muscle and depth, and a spicy, full-bodied, tannic finish. This wine has all the necessary components to age effortlessly for 20+ years. (RP)" (12/1997)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Easily one of the greatest Condrieu I’ve ever tasted is the 2015 Condrieu La Doriane. A wine that needs to be tasted to be believed, it possesses a huge nose of toasted brioche, liquid rocks, apricot, flower oil and salty minerality.

Wonderfully deep, complex yet brooding aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, duck fat, smoked meat and fruity black peppercorn; smells like a butcher shop. Wonderfully dense, savory wine with a seamless texture and little easy sweetness. There's lurking dark berry fruit here but today the wine is dominated by its salty meaty qualities and an earthy suggestion of mushroom.

Of the 2008 Aubert "Larry Hyde and Sons" Carneros Chardonnay,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "From Carneros, the 2008 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard is the most tropical fruit-scented Aubert offering, and it reveals more bold hues to its straw/green color.

2015 Sea Smoke Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Sea Smoke Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay. Famed for Pinot Noir, Sea Smoke is no slouch when it comes to Chardonnay. Vintage note from the winery: "Our estate-grown Chardonnay fruit was picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard before spending the night in our cold room. Chilled grapes were softly pressed and the juice was gently pumped into a stainless steel tank and cold settled. Once the heavy solids were removed, the juice was racked to a stainless steel fermenter, then inoculated for primary fermentation. Following primary fermentation, the wine was racked to barrels, inoculated for malolactic fermentation, then periodically stirred to enhance depth and mouthfeel. The 2015 Sea Smoke Chardonnay was aged for a total of 16 months prior to bottling with no fining and no filtration. Character: An elegant Chardonnay with aromas of Lychee, honey suckle and grapefruit zest. The wine is complemented by a focused mid-palate of warm croissant, peach and the refreshin

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Pierre Usseglio "Mon Aïeul" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first vintage, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is still drinking gorgeously today. Made from roughly 80% old-vine Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault and aged in the oldest foudre in the cellar at that time, it sports a fully mature, amber/ruby color to go with classic notes of olive tapenade, tobacco leaf, cured meats, figs, sweet kirsch and assorted darker fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, sweetly fruited, voluptuous and layered, it's clearly at peak and in need of consuming, but will hold going forward for several years. Like with the classic cuvee, I don't see any upside. Still, this is a beautiful, mature Chateauneuf du Pape that's a joy to drink. (JD)" (08/2015)

Dense ruby/purple in color, with creme de cassis, charcoal, and sweet leathery and chocolatey notes intermixed with the classic Pauillac cedar and spice box, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy, with sweet tannin and a long finish.

It displays a medium to deep garnet color and rock star vibrant red currant and black raspberry scents with hints of licorice, mocha, Indian spices and peppered salami plus oh-so-fragrant and seductive touches of potpourri and chargrill. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and opulently fruited in the mouth, the alluring, velvety tannins support savory, spicy layers right through the long, mineral-laced finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Alpha Omega's flagship wine, the 2012 Proprietary Red Blend ERA, fashioned from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, flirts with perfection. Its inky/purple color is followed by notes of incense, camphor, melted licorice, blackberry and cassis fruit. Super-concentrated with no hard edges, this is a seamless, complex, compelling Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with exquisite ripeness, purity and texture. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Swiss-born Jean Hoefliger had plenty of experience in Bordeaux and working with Michel Rolland at Newton Vineyards before taking over the reins at Alpha Omega.

This famous vineyard at the northern end of Napa Valley, which in this era was owned by Bart and Daphne Araujo (today owned by François Pinault, the proprietor of Château Latour), can certainly make the argument that it’s one of the first growths of Napa Valley. Sweet, velvety tannin, medium to full body, and extraordinary complexity and elegance characterize this wine, which is seamless and drinking beautifully. While not one of their longest-lived vintages, the balance and purity suggest that, while it may be entering its fully mature stage, it certainly can keep going for another 10-15 years. The finish is easily 40 seconds-plus. (RP)" (06/2015)

Proprietors Kathy and Frank Dotzler along with winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown have quickly pushed this estate high on Howell Mountain to one of the leaders of that appellation.

Full-bodied and opulent with stunning concentration and richness, the wine has no hard edges and is much in the Caymus style of terrific fruit intensity (most of it black and blue), voluptuous texture, and a stunning finish with plenty of glycerin, wood and spice. The alcohol on the label is listed at 14.8%, which seems about accurate. I have Caymus Special Selection in my cellar back to some of the historic wines made by Chuck Wagner’s father in the early 1970s, and while the style’s gotten more precocious and consumer-friendly, these wines, even the more latter-day styles, have

2013 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon (100DC, 100VN). Decanter: "Every time I taste Philip Togni's 2013, the more profound it seems. Bursting from the glass with complex aromas of red and black fruit, burning embers, pungent violet, rich cocoa and incipient tobacco leaf, on the palate the wine is incredibly deep, concentrated and three-dimensional. Right now it's shutting down and deserves to snooze for at least a decade before it begins to unful and reveal all its magic. Philip and his daughter Lisa are producing wines that deserve to be recognised as some of the most authoratative, classical Cabernets in all California. (WK)" (05/2016)

But more than that, it exudes authority; a dense and solid wine with an impressive presence and texture. It has a velvet mouthfeel: the tannins are dusty and mineral, alongside fruit flavors of ripe black plums and dark figs, leavened with fresh acidity.

Jeb Dunnuck: "Deep, meaty, and incredibly savory, the 2009 Cayuse Syrah Bionic Frog is dark ruby/purple and offers up a knockout, textbook northern Rhône bouquet of meaty black cherry fruit, pan drippings, bacon fat, peat moss, ground pepper, and searing minerality. Every bit as good on the palate, this full-bodied, structured Syrah is gorgeously concentrated and rich, while at the same time, staying very light on the palate, with brilliant focus, precision, and length. It’s the most firm and structured of the ‘09s, without much baby fat, and needs lots of air to shows at its best. It will ideally be given 3-5 years of bottle age, and should have two decades of longevity. 98+" (06/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect 2002 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and the rest dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. This exotic, full-throttle, nearly over-the-top red wine’s intensity, richness and smoky coffee notes intermixed with notions of chocolate, graphite, and jammy blackberry and black currant fruit ooze from the glass. This rich, concentrated beauty tastes more like a top-notch, young Right Bank Bordeaux from a vintage such as 2009 than a wine dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. With stunning purity and awesome potential, it can be drunk now or cellared for another two decades. (RP)" (06/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Margaux, Margaux (100JS, 100RP, 98ST, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely compelling in two tastings of this vintage, the 2000 Margaux is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The extraordinary seductiveness, complex aromatics, and purity it exhibits lead me to believe it has reached its window of full maturity. Medium-bodied, with layers of concentration, stunning blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, a subtle dosage of new oak, and a distinctive personality that is elegant while at the same time powerful and substantial, this is a multi-dimensional wine that was extremely approachable and drinkable in both tastings I had of it. The color remains a healthy, even opaque bluish/purple, but there is no reason to hesitate to drink it. It should evolve for another 30-40 years, so there is no hurry either. (RP)" (06/2010)

Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing.

1993 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru
Bid on this bottle of 1993 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru (98JG, 97VN, 96RP, 95BH, 95WS). John Gilman: " The 1993 Rousseau Chambertin is an absolutely brilliant wine, but it is so young as to border on criminal to be opening bottles today. The nose is deep, noble and primary, offering up notes of red plums, blackberries, espresso, incipient notes of grilled meats, hints of blood orange, violets, mustard seed, earth and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, tight and laser-like, with a rock solid core of black fruit, excellent transparency, modest tannins, tangy acids, and outstanding length and grip on the finish. While this wine is very impressive to drink today, it clearly is in need of another decade to really blossom and show all the facets of its precious gem-like personality. I would opt for leaving it alone until then, as there are plenty more fireworks to come down the road with this great example of the vintage. (Drink between 2015-2050)" (08/2006)

This is pure sex appeal on the nose: black raspberry, coffee, minerals, grilled oak and smoke, with a piquant topnote of blood orange. Large-scaled and utterly seamless, filling the entire mouth with black cherry, blackberry and black raspberry perfume. As powerful as this is, there's no undue weight here owing to the wine's outstanding vibrancy and aromatic lift. Boasts great volume and palate-staining persistence, with the noble tannins buried under a wave of fruit. (ST)" (03/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Noël Verset Cornas ((89-92ST)). 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer: "Black cherry, blueberry, licorice and pepper, with inky and espresso nuances. Supple but cool, with black fruit, violet and inky flavors. Without the influence of new oak, there's no spurious sweetness here, and the wine is distinctly rustic but not at all unclean. Penetrating and firmly structured for a 2000, and quite difficult to assess at this stage." (Jan/Feb 03) According to Robert Parker: "One of my favorite growers, the diminutive Verset, who must be close to 90 years of age, has had an erratic track record over the last few years, (which does nothing to diminish the portfolio of great wines he produced in the seventies and eighties), but the 2000 is a successful effort. Its deep purple color is accompanied by aromas of blackberry liqueur, figs, plums, melted licorice, and scorched earth. Soft and savory, it is a sexy Cornas to enjoy over the next 8-10 years. Bravo!"

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (95VN, 93ST). Vinous: "A heady, exotic wine, the 2003 Mouton Rothschild takes hold of all the senses. The ripeness and exuberance of the year comes through in spades as this dramatic, opulent wine shows off its radiant personality. The 2003 can be enjoyed now, but it could also use another few years for the tannins to soften. Still, the 2003 is pretty hard to resist today. This is an exceptional, deeply satisfying Mouton endowed with notable richness but also exceptional balance. Hints of toffee, torrefaction and dark spices are laced into the finish. In 2003 the blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, all brought in between a fairly narrow window of ten days between September 15 and 25.

Juicy black raspberry and cola flavors expand in the mouth and pick up hints of cola and licorice, along with a touch of succulent herbs. Bitter chocolate and fruitcake notes emerge on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a jolt of juicy acidity. I'd hold onto this one for a while as it drinks like a much younger wine now and holds excellent promise. (JR)" (01/2015)

Similar flavors hit the mouth with full-bodied splendor, a multidimensional mouthfeel and texture, and the sensational finish lasts more than 45 seconds.
