Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 96WE, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A monumental wine in the making, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those wines that presents such an over the top array of aromas and flavors that it’s hard to figure out what you think about it with just a quick glance. It’s only with the second or third sip that you really start to see how special this effort truly is. Offering up perfumed, intense aromas of plum, violets, ink, licorice and black currants, it flows onto the palate with a massive, incredibly full-bodied texture that builds through the mid-palate and carries layers of polished tannins, awesome purity of fruit and blockbuster length. Most likely not for everyone given the sheer size, it is an incredible wine in my opinion. Still tasting like a barrel sample, it will have 30+ total years of longevity. Drink 2017-2037.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that I think rivals the 2007 Sorella, the 2012 Sorella comes all from the Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA and is made from 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. Aged 18 months in 35% new French oak, it has smoking notes of blackcurrants, black raspberry, toasted bread and spice-box to go with a full-bodied, awesomely concentration, yet layered, balanced profile on the palate. There’s a lot of tannin here, so short-term cellaring is advised. This beauty will have 2-3 decades of longevity and will stand toe-to-to ...Read More »

2013 K Vintners "Stoneridge Vineyard - El Jefe" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 100% varietal 2013 El Jefe Tempranillo Stoneridge Vineyard (23 months in 40% new oak) is another terrific example of this variety in Washington, and while there’s not many Tempranillo based releases out there, the ones that are, are seriously good. This 2013 gives up lots of darker fruits (black currants maybe), lots of spicy oak, toasted spice and licorice to go with a full-bodied, elegant, sexy profile on the palate. It continues to open up with time in the glass, and the tannin, while present, are incredibly polished and perfectly ripe. Feel free ...Read More »

2012 Andrew Will "Two Blondes Vineyard" Yakima Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the best vintages for this cuvee to date, the 2012 Two Blonds Vineyard (50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc) offers brilliant notes of black raspberry, currants, mint, leafy herbs and toasted spice. A classic Bordeaux blend from Washington, this beauty has medium to full-bodied richness, superb purity of fruit and an elegant, seamless style that will allow it to drink nicely today, yet also evolve nicely for 15 years or more. These latest 2012s from Chris Camarda are easily some of the best wines I’ve tasted from him and th ...Read More »

2013 Seven Hills Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The aromas of cedar, fresh dark berries, thyme, garden herbs and flowers provide instant appeal, with woodsy accents following. Lively plum and raspberry flavors back them up, with fine-grained tannins and barrel accents speckled throughout. (SS)" (3/2016) Vinous: "(bottled three weeks before my visit in June): Healthy red-ruby. Pure, expressive aromas of plum, currant, menthol and cigar box. Lusher and more savory than the Merlot but not as suave or consistently ripe as the Petit Verdot, showing a note of chocolatey sweetness to go with its dark berry and spice fl ...Read More »

2013 Gramercy Cellars "The Deuce" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly from the Les Collines Vineyard in Walla Walla, the 2013 Syrah The Deuce is a fabulous, downright sexy 2013 that’s loaded with gamy, lavender, dried violets, and peppery aromas and flavors. Giving up lots of dark fruits, full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a graceful, never heavy texture, it shows the vintage's more charming, approachable style, yet I’m sure this beauty will cruise for a decade in the cellar. (JD)" (6/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The herb, violet, red fruit and mineral aromas start out light, with earth, smoked meat and black pepper notes lurking in the ...Read More »

2013 Long Shadows "Pedestal" Columbia Valley Merlot

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorites in the 2013 lineup is the 2013 Pedestal Merlot. Made by Michel Rolland and blended with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and smaller parts Malbec and Cabernet Franc, aged 22 months in 85% new French oak, its deep purple color is followed by fabulous notes of plums, coffee beans, spice box and sweet oak in a full-bodied, decadent, ripe and expansive package. In general, Cabernet was more successful than Merlot in 2013, but you wouldn’t know it by tasting this beauty. Drink it anytime over the coming decade."

92 points Vinous: "(a Châteauneuf du Pape blend from the Rocks, fermented entirely with whole clusters in cement and stainless steel, with the white grapes and the lighter reds at the bottom of the tank; then aged in large neutral puncheons for 30 months): Moderately saturated medium red. Spicy, iron-scented cherry and raspberry aromas display noteworthy precision. A step up in intensity from the Boy, boasting terrific cut and energy to its uncompromisingly dry red berry and spice flavors.

It offers a complex, brambly, spice, licorice and sweetly-fruited feel, as well as medium-bodied richness, excellent freshness and a great finish. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 5-6 years. The Casa Smith brand is reserved for the Italian themed wines from Charles Smith." (6/2016) Vinous: "Bright medium red.

2013 Super Substance "Klein Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from miniscule yields on the order of 0.8 tons per acre and a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, the 2013 Super Substance Klein Vineyard offers classic graphite, dried earth, chocolate and ripe dark fruits to go with a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, layered and complex profile on the palate. A wine that might flirt with perfection at maturity, give bottles 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two decades.
