Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (98RP, 97WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard is a gorgeous, clearly California version of a grand cru from Burgundy, such as Clos Saint-Denis or Clos de la Roche.

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989.

2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Sweet, silky tannins give the 2009 much of its succulence. Scents of mint, pine and eucalyptus wrap around the juicy, inviting finish.

Cloves, dark plums, cherries, smoke and graphite add richness and resonance to this powerful, incisive wine. Juicy and exuberant, the 2009 has always had a certain raciness that is impossible to resist. Layers of fruit continue to build to the enveloping, sensual finish. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this hugely delicious wine. (AG)" (12/2012) 97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby to the rim.

2009 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a surprisingly accessible vintage for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Today it looks like an excellent choice for readers who want to explore the wines of this iconic producer--as long as it doesn't close down in bottle. Togni's 2009 is notable for its exceptional elegance, finesse and pedigree. There is plenty of Spring Mountain structure, but today the 2009 is disarmingly sexy and radiant for such a young wine.

Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish.

More site-typical than vintage-typical, this masculine, Pauillac-like wine will need patience once it's bottled."

2009 Mount Eden "Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Vinous: "Mount Eden's 2009 Chardonnay Reserve boasts considerable depth and resonance. Graphite, smoke and butter add shades of dimension to the tropical, honeyed flavors. Even with its considerable oiliness and viscosity, the 2009 retains a gorgeous sense of energy. My impression is that the 2009 is likely to age at a slightly faster pace than some of the surrounding vintages, but in exchange it will drink well with minimal cellaring. Once again, the overall balance here is beyond impeccable. (AG)" (6/2015)

2009 Promontory Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously 575)

Dense, masculine, rich and full, this 2009 is built for the long-term, although for a 2009, the tannins are remarkably well-integrated, giving the wine definition and structure. This 2009 should age for 25+ years. (RP)" (10/2013) 94 points Vinous: "The 2009 Proprietary Red Blend is dark, dense and vol ...Read More »

A long road winds up Mount Veeder to the historic stone winery and its estate vineyards, located at elevations between 1,800 and 2,400 feet above sea level. Previously owned by the family (from 1968 to 2013), the winery has been known for making lean, balanced, long-aging wines. Many vintages need a decade or more of cellaring to really find their greatness.

2009 White Rock Napa Valley Chardonnay

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium bright gold. Lemon, minerals, nutty oak and spearmint oil on the nose, along with a suggestion of sake. Firmly built, with good zippy acidity framing the citrus, mineral and oak flavors and giving the wine a light touch. Fruity now, this will go honeyed with time in bottle." (May/June '11) From Wine Spectator: "Chablis-like, built on green fruit, tasting of apple, pear and melon flavors that are clean and vibrant. Medium- to full-bodied, ending with a citrusy and minerally edge. Drink now throug... Read More »

2009 Scarecrow "M. Étain" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Spectator: "Amazingly complex, firm, dense and concentrated, with a vivid, lively, structured mix of dried currant, mineral, cedar, sage and tobacco notes.

(4/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain is dark, rich, sumptuous and highly expressive. A totally voluptuous wine, the 2009 flows across the palate with layers of dark fruit. Stylistically, the M. Etain is very close to the Scarecrow Cabernet in this vintage, alt ...Read More »

2009 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

2009 Hundred Acre "Ark Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard emerges from a parcel of old, volcanic soils that inform the wine to a significant degree. A vivid kaleidoscope of iron, ash, tar, smoke, crushed rocks and dark red berries take shape as this fabulous, pedigreed wine shows off its considerable personality. A cool, inward wine, the Ark is all about minerality and pure tension as a backdrop for the characteristic Hundred Acre fruit. A huge, mineral-soaked finish rounds things out in style. The 2009 is the rare Hundred Acre wine that is not likely to offer immediate ...Read More »
