2016 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Knights Valley Chardonnay
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Knights Valley Chardonnay ((96-98RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene offers up exuberant green mango, white peach and lemon zest notes with touches of cashews, lightly browned toast and white blossoms. The medium-bodied palate fills the mouth with mouthwatering perfumed citrus flavors, which are complemented by the silken texture, finishing on a chalky note. (LPB)" (10/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 2013 Merry Edwards "Georganne" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (94WE, 92RP, 92VN, 90BH, 90WS). Wine Enthusiast: "Rustic earth and the aromatic sparks of a rose garden open this wine, named by combining the middle names of the producer and her husband. Tight, youthful tannins hover around chocolate, strawberry and blackberry notes, resulting in a velvety texture on the expansive palate. It finishes quietly and confidently, eager to develop further in bottle; enjoy through 2023. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (06/2016)

1996 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 1996 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 93CG, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The virtually perfect 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (330 cases) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple-colored, with a profound bouquet of minerals, flowers, black fruits, and spice, this awesomely concentrated, multi-layered wine represents the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Amazingly, it is neither ponderous nor heavy handed, with the oak, acidity, and tannin woven into the wine's formidable, concentrated personality. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Sadly, it is extremely limited in availability, but what a compelling wine it is! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025. This is a spectacular wine that must be tasted to be believed. (RP)" (08/1999)

2011 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah
Bid on this bottle of 2011 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (98RP, 97VN, 95ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Decidedly cool climate in character, the 2011 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock comes from steep, terraced plots of old head trained Syrah vines that, in 2011, wasn’t harvested until November. Co-fermented with a splash of Roussanne and Mourvedre, it’s a spectacular effort that makes the most of the cool, long growing season. It’s also the most long term prospect in the lineup. Offering up a tight, Cornas-like bouquet of black and blue fruits, white pepper, spring flowers and salty minerality, it is full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and seamless on the palate, with ultra-fine tannin and building richness that only starts to develop with a healthy decant. It’s a gorgeous wine, yet needs to be forgotten for at least 4-5 years. It should drink nicely through 2031. (JD)" (08/2014)

2013 Rhys "Skyline Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Rhys "Skyline Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (96JG, 95RP, 95VN, 94BH). John Gilman: "The 2013 Skyline Vineyard pinot noir is as expressive and exotic on the nose as I can remember for a young wine from this great terroir, and I suspect that the 2013 is going to be a reference point vintage for this wine that we are going to look back on with reverence a decade or two down the road. The stunning nose wafts from the glass in an magically complex blend of black plums, pomegranate, a touch of smoked duck, gorgeously layered soil tones, a bit of balsam bough, cola, woodsmoke, sweet herbs and a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and already quite velvety in texture, with laser-like focus, a sappy core, moderate tannins and a very long, very complex and tangy finish. This beautiful wine is only 12.6 percent alcohol, but is so layered and intensely flavored that it could not be improved upon by any means- other than magnum

Of the 2013 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Zinfandel,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "One of the greatest Zinfandels I've ever tasted from Larry Turley, this wine (15.7% alcohol) offers super-concentrated blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, some floral notes, an underlying firm structure, but lavish (if not luxurious) fruit, texture and a full-bodied mouthfeel.

2003 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2003 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 97WE, 95ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine I’ve had multiple times recently, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon (97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot) is pure perfection in a glass and yields off-the-hook aromatics of cassis, black raspberries, tobacco leaf, pepper and licorice. Deep, layered and even elegant, with a seamless texture that conceals the sheer wealth of material present, it builds through the mid-palate, possesses huge amounts of extract and masses of polished tannin on the finish. Despite the overall size, it never loses its Cabernet Sauvignon soul and has an almost Bordeaux-like savoriness and tannic frame. Still young (yet gorgeous none the less), it can be enjoyed now or cellared for another 10-15+ years. Drink now through 2028. (JD)" (06/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that needs to be forgotten in the cellar for 5-6 years, the 2011 Syrah Patine checks in as a blend of roughly 97% Syrah and the balance Roussanne and Viognier. It too comes all from the estate's Eleven Confessions Vineyard and saw 39 months in 63% new French oak. Backward, tight, concentrated and structured, with full-bodied richness and depth, it gives up Guigal La Landonne like aromas and flavors of graphite, sweet oak, smoked meats, pepper and black raspberry and cassis-like fruit. While it shows the vintage's cooler nature, it has a stacked mid-palate and will evolve gracefully for 15-20 years. (JD)" (08/2015)

There is good detail and a light touch of minerality to the largely resolved, balanced and lingering finish. For my taste this is drinking now as well as it's going to though with that said, there is no particular rush to drink up. In sum, this is a lovely villages Vosne." (12/2013)

The straw color reveals a greenish hue, and the wine bursts from the glass with notes of exotic fruits, wet stones, limes and white peaches. It has a kinship to a great Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne. Complex and full-bodied with stunning purity, richness and acidity, this killer Chardonnay should drink well for 6-10 years. (RP)" (12/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A true gem in the vintage, the 2014 The Ripper (Grenache) is reminiscent of a top vintage of Domaine de Marcoux's Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes with its gorgeously pure bouquet of framboise, kirsch, spice box, licorice and dried flowers. Medium ruby colored and semi-opaque, this full-bodied Grenache has no hard edges, a full, layered texture and building, ripe, sweet tannin that really stretches out the finish. This is a fabulous, tour de force effort that I wish every reader could taste. It's sensational today, but should continue to shine for upwards of a decade. (JD)" (08/2016)

Created from some of the estate’s youngest vines planted in decomposed white tufa volcanic soils at an elevation of 1,100 to 1,300 feet on Spring Mountain, it offers a stunning blue/purple color, copious quantities of blueberries, black raspberries and violet-infused fruit intermixed with hints of foresty flora. Rich, full-bodied and pure, this beautiful 2003 is several years away from full maturity, but it should keep for two more decades. The single vineyard wines represent Bill Harlan’s concept of offering single vineyard, micro-climate/terroir-based wines from distinctive sectors of Napa Valley. (RP)" (06/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This iconic wine, consistently made since it was first released in 1979 by Randy Dunn, is always aged 30 months in barrel and then an additional six months in bottle prior to being released. It is always 100% Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Randy Dunn is one of the first advocates of alcohol levels under 14%. (This one is listed at 13.8%.) I just can’t comprehend the obsession and polemics about alcohol. Unless the wine lacks balance and character, it is rarely even a legitimate issue. Anything between 12.5% and 15.5%-16% can work well, and even some higher ones seem to carry their alcohol extraordinarily well, especially if they are made from grapes such as Zinfandel or Grenache. Dense purple in color and still looking like a barrel sample, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has a nice, cedary, new saddle leather-infused blackcurrant richness, outstandin

Bid on this 5-half-bottle lot of 2005 Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Brücke Riesling Auslese (375ml) (96JG, 95WS, 92ST). John Gilman: " The 2005 Oberhäuser Brücke is a magical young Auslese in the making. The very primary nose delivers the uncanny purity of the best botrytized wines of the vintage, coupled with the brilliant terroir that is the Brücke, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of pear, candied grapefruit, kaleidoscopic minerality and a floral topnote. I am sure this wine is sporting plenty of botrytis, but today it is almost imperceptible on both the nose and palate. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and utterly ethereal, with a brilliant core of fruit, perfect focus and balance, and great reserves as the turbocharger kicks in on the monumental finish. This is very early days for this brilliant young wine. (Drink between 2012-2040)" (08/2006)

2011 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (96W&S, (93-95RP), 94VN, 93JS). Wine & Spirits: "The cool 2011 season turned out a pristine vintage of Monte Bello, made from Cabernet (88 percent) grown on a limestone-inflected ridge high above Silicon Valley, blended with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The team at Ridge let the fruit recover for two weeks following an early October storm before picking, and were more aggressive in their extraction than normal, drawing as much color and structure as possible from the delicate fruit. The aromas revolve around oak at first—anise, wood smoke, cedar bark and cinnamon—but the wood’s contribution is fine and integrated, shading gradually toward bright fruit as the finish lengthens with floral aromas and the tang of tiny, concentrated black currants. It’s even better with a day of air, as the tannins turn to velvet, allowing red-fruited acidity to take the lead and brighten the wine’s sav

2009 Nickel & Nickel "Regusci Block 4" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2009 Nickel & Nickel "Regusci Block 4" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. Vintage notes from Nickel & Nickel: "The Regusci Vineyard is nestled against the Vaca Mountain range on the eastern side of Napa Valley in the Stags Leap District. Nickel & Nickel makes Regusci Cabernet from Block 4, a tiny three-acre section of the 43-acre vineyard. It has a western exposure and a gentle slope that aids drainage. The soil is made up of weathered volcanic materials that are mixed with gravel and produce vines of moderate vigor with average-size clusters. Stags Leap has wonderful, warm temperatures moderated by cool, afternoon breezes, so the fruit experiences ideal conditions throughout the growing season. The 2009 Regusci Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful, red fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry along with an earthiness that is inherent to this vintage. These forward flavors combine with soft and polished juiciness. The palate is rich and supple, and there is a wonder

1996 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 1996 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (97VN, 96RP, 95ST). Vinous: "What a treat it is to taste these two Pichon Lalandes straight from the chateau’s cellar. The 1996 Pichon Lalande is stratospheric from the very first taste. The deep, layered bouquet alone is deeply transfixing. Smoke, mocha, dark spices, lavender, crème de cassis, a host of dark-fleshed fruits and a touch of warm, resonant sweetness from the French oak draw me in. All of those sensations follow through to the palate, where the wine is massive, intense and totally enveloping. Time has softened the tannins to the point the 1996 is ready to drink, but there is enough sheer concentration here to support another 20-30 years of exceptional drinking. I am not sure I possess the vocabulary to describe just how captivating the 1996 is, but I do know this: If I had an opportunity to pick up a few well-stored bottles I would take it in a nanosecond. Readers holding the 1996 should be thrilled. The 1996 Pichon Lalan

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yields continued to increase in 2013, with just over 4,000 cases of wine from a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. This is another killer effort from Spottswoode. Inky bluish purple to the rim, it has hints of violets intermixed with sweet foresty notes, blackcurrants, chocolate and a touch of subtle smoke and earth. It is dense, with higher acidity and more noticeable structure than the 2012, but is as concentrated, dense and promising. Some patience is warranted in 2013, and I would suggest waiting another 5-6 years before pulling the cork on one. It is a 50-year wine at the very minimum and a great classic. (RP) 99+ " (08/2016)

It is smooth and supple in feel with plenty of palatal weight and a fine sense of polish, and its neatly fit spine of firm structural tannins is precisely the stuff of fine Cabernet. A few years of age should make a good thing better, and it has room enough for ten years of growth." (04/2009)

1934 Bodegas Toro Albalá "Don Px Convento Selección" Pedro Ximenez Jerez (OWC)
Bid on this bottle of 1934 Bodegas Toro Albalá "Don Px Convento Selección" Pedro Ximenez Jerez in original wood. This rare sweet tipple hails from Montilla-Moriles, the hottest region in Spain and the neighbor to Jerez, home of Sherry. Thanks to the glorious Southern Spain sunshine and its intense ripening power, the region's sweet wines developed without the need for fortification--the grapes naturally achieve levels of 15%+ alcohol. Eccentric entrepreuner José Maria Toro Albala took over in 1922, moving the whole bodega into an unused power plant. They annually release gems from their exceptional, deep library. The Wine Advocate praised this unique producer: "All the wines they produce are of course fermented from Pedro Ximenez white grapes, but for the sweet wines the grapes are sun-dried, dehydrated into raisins, and the resulting wine is brown in color which gets darker as the wine ages and concentrates in barrel. The oldest examples are an opaque black with an amber rim as dense

In the case of the 2004, it carries the oak beautifully, untamed by it. The wine is wild, in fact, and quite hard to resist. The cool complexity of the tannins grows out of three terroirs: the limestone plateau, a sector of gravel and limestone and a third sector of clay. The fruit opens with thick-skinned black plum power, reverberating with feral scents and violets. Staunch and formidable, the wine is packed with life." (10/2007)
