Bid on this bottle of 2008 Quilceda Creek "Palengat Vineyard" Horse Heaven Hills Bordeaux Blend (97RP, 94ST, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Palengat Proprietary Red Wine is made up of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, with the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot. The fruit was sourced entirely from the Palengat Vineyard. Pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, violets, dried herbs, black currant, and blackberry aromas compose the bouquet of this impeccably balanced offering. It opens in the glass to reveal plush, succulent flavors, superb concentration, plenty of ripe tannin, and at least 4-5 years of aging potential. It will deliver optimum drinking from 2015 to 2028. (JM)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (98JS, 95RP, 95ST, 93VN, 91WS). James Suckling: "Superb nose of sweet tobacco, dark fruits, iron, rust, strawberry and chocolate. Fresh mint. Pine nuts. Full body with incredible structure. It is tightly knit with dense ball of fruit and ripe tannins. Goes on for minutes. This needs time to come together in bottle but fascinating. Chanel No 5 in a bottle. Better in 2018. " (10/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (93RP, 93WS, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Harvest from September 10th to October 10th, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a sexy, supple and textured effort that has lots of jammy dark fruits, licorice and toasted spice. Surprisingly textured and rounded, it has terrific purity and a hard-to-resist personality. Drink through 2020. (JD)" (10/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Pruliers" ((91-93BH), (92-93RP), (89-92ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chevillons’ 2005 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Pruliers offers high-toned aromas of resin and sage, candied black cherry, and road tar. A sappy intensity on the palate incorporates some of the same resinous, fusil notes along with multi-boned meat stock and rich, positively viscous suggestions of black cherry concentrate. This has more obvious structure than its predecessors, yet also more fat and glycerin. Sleek and refined yet also gripping and mineral-inflected in its long finish, this will keep nicely for well more than a decade and should be left alone for at least 5-7 years. (DS)" (04/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is big, dark and juicy. There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish. Elements of fleshiness give the impression the 2006 might drink well relatively early, until the massive tannins set in. Floral notes add freshness on the finish. This is another fabulous wine from Randy Dunn. (AG)" (12/2011)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96RP, 95VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Incorporating more Petite Sirah than normal, and the first time there's been less than 50% Syrah, the 2013 Syrah Broken Stones is made from 48% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah, 17% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre the rest Tempranillo and Roussanne. Its deep, inky color is followed by a structured, seriously mineral-laced and full-bodied red that offers lots of fruit (cassis, black cherries and raspberries), smoked earth and chocolate aromas and flavors. The tannin is front and center, yet they're beautifully ripe and polished. (JD)" (08/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 96VN, 92WE, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A real tour de force once again, and their second consecutive perfect score, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 40% new French oak. It is a larger cuvée of 1,416 cases versus 450 for the Reserve Claret. The Cabernet is just under 15% alcohol. A fantastic wine, with great intensity, notes of graphite, forest floor, crème de cassis, white chocolate and blackberry, the wine hits the palate with a thunderous presence, has a multi-layered, skyscraper-like palate feel, a plush, intense texture, high but well-integrated tannin and acidity, and nicely disguised oak. This is a magnificent wine, with 79% of it coming from the Sonoma side of Spring Mountain and 21% from the Napa side. Drink it over the next 25-30+ years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Cayuse "Edith" Walla Walla Valley Grenache Rosé (92RP, 90VN, 90WE, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top Rosés coming out of the United States today is unquestionably the Grenache Rosé Edith from Cayuse. The 2015 Grenache Rosé Edith comes all from the Armada vineyard and is whole cluster pressed (no saignée), fermented in concrete egg and aged in both concrete and stainless steel. It’s almost white in color, but don’t let that fool you, as it has beautiful intensity and length in its salty minerality, white grapefruit and citrus aromas and flavors. Clean, crisp and beautiful on the palate, without being lean, drink it over the coming year. (JD)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Berthaut-Gerbet Vosne-Romanee (92WS, (89-91BH), (88-90RP)). Wine Spectator: "This is high-toned and floral, offering violet, raspberry, wild strawberry and earth flavors. Backed by a firm, vibrant structure, this extends on the finish, with the memory of fruit and earth detail and a chalky feel. (BS, Web Only-2019)"

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Aubert "Powder House" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay ((98-99JS), 97RP, 95VN). James Suckling: "A very flashy white with so much toasted-oak and coconut, cooked-apple and peach character. Full-bodied, dense and very rich. Lots of fruit and intensity at the end. So much lime and kiwi in the aftertaste. Gorgeous. " (11/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Turley Zinfandel Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Duarte" Contra Costa County Zinfandel (91RP, 90VN) and 2-bottles of 2014 Turley "Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel (93RP, 93WS). Of the 2014 Turley "Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "From Paso Robles, the 2014 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard (planted in 1945) is the more potent of the Turley 2014s, coming in at a lofty 16% alcohol. It is not overripe, not Amarone-like, or showing any heat. This wine has plenty of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, licorice, and roasted herbs that are reminiscent of Mediterranean-styled wine, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a heady, lush finish. This is impressive, but clearly one of the bigger-boned, larger-scaled Zinfandels in the 2014 portfolio. Drink over the next decade. (RP)" (04/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Volnay 1er Cru "Les Caillerets - Ancienne Cuvée Carnot" (93BH, 92W&S, 91ST, 90WS). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Mild reduction knocks down the nose and renders it difficult to properly assess. The ripe yet cool, detailed and intensely mineral-driven flavors possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the impeccably well-balanced and explosive finish. The Clos des Chênes is excellent but there is simply another dimension of depth present here. *Don't miss, Outstanding* " (04/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Leonetti Columbia Valley Merlot (94RP, 93W&S, 92WE, 91WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Though less powerful than the 2003, the aromatically floral 2004 Merlot holds its own in a qualitative comparison. Its nose of roses, wild berries, and cherries leads to a medium to full-bodied, pure core of spicy black cherries. (PR)" (04/2006)

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana (95WE, 95WS, 94RP, 93ST, 93W&S). Wine Enthusiast: "Ah, Tignanello, the father of all super Tuscans. A tried and true favorite, it is a Sangiovese-based wine cut with a small component of Cabernet for rich aromas of red fruit and spice. It is elegant, harmonious and long-lasting on the finish. *Cellar Selection* " (04/2008)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru (95ST, (91-94BH), (92-94RP), 92JG). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Wonderfully complex, vibrant aromas of red fruits, game and minerals. Offers great energy and sap in the mid-palate, with powerful minerality giving precision to the flavors. Wonderfully classy, soil-driven wine with the depth and structure to evolve in bottle for decades. Extremely long and tactile on the aftertaste. (ST)" (03/2008)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Dominique Laurent Vosne Romanee ''Cuvée Tradition''. From Benchmark Wine Group: "As small-scale but high-quality négociant in the Nuits-Saint-George department of Burgundy, Dominique Laurent made a great name for itself after making the transition into the wine world from the pastry world. Their portfolio is based on small parcels of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from different appellations throughout the Côte-d'Or, and they released their first wines in 1988. Initial labels read “Dom. Laurent” as a deliberate trick based off of the founder’s name as well as alluding to it being a domaine even though they owned no vineyards. It is a known fact that fruit is sourced from very old parcels making quantities as limited as 25- 50 cases of each wine per vintage."
Starting Bid: $310.00

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (95JS, 95RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Flaccianello della Pieve captures the essence of this great Tuscan vintage. It is a decidedly sexy, opulent wine bursting at the seams with rich red berries, mint and spices. The tannins are present but virtually undetectable under layer after layer of fruit. There is no question the 2007 is seamless, opulent and full-bodied. Readers who prefer more structured wines will gravitate to vintages such as 2001 and 2004. I find the 2007 utterly irresistible. It will also drink better earlier than some of the most classic vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (AG) 95+ " (06/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Moet & Chandon "Cuvée Dom Pérignon - Andy Warhol Tribute" Brut Champagne (98VN, 97DC, 96W&S, 95RP, 95WS). Vinous: "The 2002 Dom Pérignon is unforgettable. Rich, sumptuous and flamboyant to the core, the 2002 captures all of the radiance of a year in which ripeness in the Chardonnays was pushed to the edge. The 2002 is oily and viscous on the palate, with tremendous textural resonance in all of its dimensions. Tropical fruit, pastry and exotic floral notes all build as the 2002 opens up with air. I can still remember the first time I tasted the 2002, here in the Hautvillers cloister, with former Chef de Caves Richard Geoffroy. It was thrilling back then, and is every bit as memorable today. (AG)" (07/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Bruno Giacosa "Santo Stefano" Barbaresco (95ST, 95VN, 93JS). Vinous: "The 2007 Barbaresco Santo Stefano captures all of the qualities that makes this such an appealing vintage. Gracious, aromatic and beautifully lifted, the 2007 offers lovely freshness to balance the overt fruit of the year. On this night, I am quite surprised by how firm the tannins are, which is naturally a very good sign for the wine’s potential longevity. A closing flourish of sweet red cherry, flowers and crushed rocks rounds things out in style. (AG)" (03/2017)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2007 Vineyard 29 "CRU" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of Napa’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines in the $50 range is Vineyard 29's 2007 Cru. Produced by owners Chuck and Ann McMinn and their consulting winemaker, Philippe Melka, there are 5,000 cases of this blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The grapes are all purchased, and the wine is made at their state-of-the-art facility just off Highway 29 north of St. Helena. This beautiful wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as pure black currant fruit aromas intermixed with notions of licorice, charcoal, subtle smoke, and high class unsmoked cigar tobacco. It is an elegant, stunningly concentrated, seductive, lush wine that should age nicely for a decade or more. (RP)" (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Andremily "No. 4" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L) (99JD, 97RP, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 No. 4 checks in as a blend of 90% Syrah, 6% Viognier, and 4% Mourvèdre that spent 22 months in 70% new French oak. Sporting an inky purple color, it offers a killer perfume of blackberries, blueberries, exotic flowers, orange marmalade, violets, Asian spices, and graphite. Getting a serious "Wow" in the notes for its sensational complexity, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, stunning purity of fruit, and a focused, chiseled yet voluptuous texture. This beauty has everything: complexity, depth, richness, purity, and elegance." (10/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000-2001 Alion (Vega Sicilia) Ribera del Duero Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2000 Alion (Vega Sicilia) Ribera del Duero (92RP, 91ST, 91WE, 90WS) and 1-bottle of 2001 Alion (Vega Sicilia) Ribera del Duero (95RP, 95VN, 91W&S). Of the 2001 Alion (Vega Sicilia) Ribera del Duero,Vinous writes: "Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of currant, roasted herbs, Cuban tobacco, black olive and black pepper. Lush and supple but firmly built, with wonderfully velvety, multilayered flavors of outstanding depth. This combines the solid structure of a top Bordeaux with the sheer sweetness of fruit possible in Spain. As rich as this is, there's no impression of excess weight. The finish features very fine-grained tannins and outstanding palate-saturating persistence. Clearly the finest vintage to date for this wine. (ST)" (09/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Giuseppe Rinaldi "Brunate - Le Coste" Barolo (98VN, 93WS). Vinous: "A far more powerful, sinewy wine than the 2004, the 2006 Barolo Brunate - Le Coste is pure muscle. The bright red color and intense tannins show the 2006 is still an infant. It’s impossible not to admire the purity of the flavors and the wine’s overall precision. Although the 2006 has a very bright future, it won’t be anywhere close to its best for another decade or so. Readers who own the 2006 should be positively thrilled. I know I am. (AG)" (05/2017)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this bottle of 1973 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JG, 90RP). John Gilman: "The 1973 Martha’s Vineyard is fully mature and is drinking beautifully at nearly forty years of age. The deep and utterly classic nose offers up scents of red and black cherries, petroleum jelly, fresh mint, chipotle peppers, spice tones, a beautiful base of soil and a nice touch of nutskins in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and absolutely à point, with a silky palate impression, lovely intensity of flavor, lovely complexity and stunning length and grip on the perfectly focused and dancing finish. The ’73 Martha’s Vineyard will not last anywhere near as long as wines such as the 1974 or 1975, but it still has plenty of life in it and will continue to dazzle for decades to come. Just a beautiful bottle of wine." (06/2011)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Vérité "La Joie" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend (100RP, 97DC, 96WE, 95ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2007’s fruit came from four sources, Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, Knight's Valley, Chalk Hill and Bennett Valley. This utterly perfect, flawless wine reveals great intensity along with a wonderful perfume of roasted coffee, blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers, forest floor and crushed rock. Full-bodied and viscous without being heavy, the wine possesses admirable precision as well as good acidity and balance. This stunning wine is developing beautifully. It contains 14.4% alcohol (one of the highest amounts) and a final pH of 3.64. It should last another 30 years. (RP)" (06/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (94JS, 92RP, 92ST, 91WS). James Suckling: "This a 2011 with impressive structure and finesse. Black truffle and blackcurrants. Pine needles. Aromatic. Full body with fine tannins and fresh, clean finish. Sleekness and finesse. Excellent length. It really grows on you. Wonderful texture. They produce a tiny amount and reduce the crop." (03/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 95RP, 95VN, 92WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Broken Stones is heavenly stuff! Made from a blend of 41% Syrah, 19% Grenache, 16% Petite Sirah, 13% Mourvèdre and the balance Tempranillo and Roussanne, this inky colored beauty offers terrific notes of mostly blue fruits (blackberries, blueberries), crushed violets, Asian spices and forest floor. Full-bodied, concentrated, elegant and seamless on the palate, it has a ripe tannin and a gorgeous finish." (08/2017)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey St. Aubin 1er Cru "Champlots" (92WS, 90BH, 90RP, (88-90VN)). Wine Spectator: "Round and opulent, boasting peach, apple and spice flavors underscored by a beam of lemon. Harmonious, ending on a pleasing sapid note. (BS)" (04/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Delas "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (96RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "However, 8-9 years of cellaring are required before this wine rounds into drinkable form. An opaque black/purple color is accompanied by sublime aromas of licorice, espresso, scorched earth, tapenade, bacon fat, and blackberry/cassis liqueur. This is a wine of great intensity, explosive richness, and brutally high tannin. This compelling, majestic Cote Rotie should be at its finest between 2008-2025. Beginning with the 1997 vintage, this firm has made remarkable progress with their Cote Rotie program. The cuvaison lasts twenty days, and Jacques Granges believes in several pigeages (punching down) a day, with pump overs as well." (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $113.99

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Humbert Frères Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Poissenot" (93WS, 92BH, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "A rich, powerful Gevrey, packed with damson, huckleberry, leather and spice flavors. Concentrated and pure, with persistence and a mineral streak on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2025. (BS)" (05/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Cayuse Walla Walla Valley Syrah Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2007 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99RP, 97WE), 1-bottle of 2007 Cayuse "Cailloux Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99WE, 98RP, 95WS, 94VN), and 1-bottle of 2007 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98RP, 98WE, 95JD, 95WS, 93ST). Of the 2007 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2007 Syrah Armada Vineyard is simultaneously one of the most youthful wines in this tasting and also the most complete, unfurling in the glass with a savory bouquet of black truffle, bitter chocolate, cassis and other dark fruits. On the palate, the wine is both more expansive and more incisive than the 2008, its lavish, textural attack segueing into a deep, stony and layered mid-palate. The finish is sapid, even saline and very long. Aged in demi-muids, one of which is new, the 2007 finished up with 14.2% alcohol. Baron is plann

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (93RP, 92ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Leoville Barton appears more youthful than the 1996 Langoa Barton in the glass with a healthy deep garnet core. The aromatics unfurl gracefully in the glass revealing briary, wild hedgerow, black truffle and sandalwood scents -- firmly in secondary aroma stage but with appreciable presence and intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin that form its firm and classic structure, spice, white pepper and cloves infusing the slightly animally red berry fruit. This is an adorable Léoville Barton that is occupying a very 'happy' place at the moment -- superb precision, old school claret at its best. Decant for an hour no more, then enjoy. (NM)" (10/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" (94BH, 93JG, 92ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is a mild step up in overall class and elegance with a gorgeously perfumed white flower fruit nose introducing linear, precise, intense and powerful medium full flavors that remain splendidly focused on the stunningly long finish that drenches the palate in dry extract. This is a striking 1er and one to buy as it easily delivers grand cru quality. *Outstanding*" (10/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (90RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A charming, lush, round, generous Lynch Bages, the 1999 offers plenty of sweet black currant fruit, damp earth, licorice, cedarwood and spicy herb-like characteristics. Medium-bodied, savory and broad in the mouth with no hard edges, this fully mature effort is a somewhat underrated vintage for this estate. (RP)" (08/2011)
Starting Bid: $112.00

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Rauzan-Segla, Margaux (94WE, 93RP, 93VN, 91WS). Wine Enthusiast: "A huge, powerful, dense wine, which layers pure black fruits over dusty tannins. This is an impressive wine, proof of Rauzan-Ségla's improvements since Chanel took over ownership. It is packed with fruits, like an intense jelly, but also has dryness, acidity and good aging potential. (RV)" (06/2005)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Aubert "CIX" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (99RP, (97-98JS), 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Planted in 2008 to Montrachet clone, the 2017 Chardonnay CIX Estate is so delightfully savory, you could make a whole meal of it! It opens with bags of praline, pain grille, allspice and dill seed notions over a core of baked apples, pear tart, aniseed and lime leaves plus a touch of sea spray. Full-bodied, the palate has fantastic texture with a little chewy grip countering the slight oiliness and supporting the savory layers beautifully, finishing long and refreshing. Man, I just personally love the style of this wine! (LPB)" (10/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 1995 Domaine Philippe Naddef Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes (1.5L). A wine-growing estate of close to 15 acres, the Domaine Philippe Naddef is made up of 33 lots and produces 12 different wines. Located on the famous Route des Grands Crus, in Fixin in the Côte de Nuits region, the family estate was taken over by Philippe Naddef in 1983, consisting at the time of just over 6 acres of Gevrey-Chambertin. It then extended across Fixin and Marsannay through the acquisition of new lots. Philippe Naddef began working with Roumier in the early 1980s, and by 1984 began receiving vineyards from the Bizot side of his family. Wines are 100% de-stemmed. As Jeanne Marie says, "He loves a tough vintage. He is a good farmer."
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95DC, 93WE, 93WS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 reveals more oak on the nose, but is a much deeper, richer, fuller wine than the S.L.V. Dense ruby/purple to the rim, beautiful blackberry and cassis fruit, cedar wood, toast and earth jump from the glass. Full-bodied and layered, but with nothing out of balance, this is probably the strongest Cask 23 since the glory years of the mid-80s. Look for this wine to drink well young, yet age effortlessly for 25 years. (RP)" (12/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009-2010 Rhys "Swan Terrace" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2008 Rhys "Swan Terrace - Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (94BH, 94JG, 94VN, (89-92RP)), 1-bottle of 2009 Rhys "Swan Terrace - Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95BH, 95ST, 95VN, 93RP), and 1-bottle of 2010 Rhys "Swan Terrace" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95RP, 95ST, 91BH). Of the 2009 Rhys "Swan Terrace - Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir,Vinous writes: "Bright ruby. Pure, expressive red fruit and floral aromas are complicated by star anise, cinnamon and allspice, with a lively mineral undertone adding vivacity. Impressively precise in the mouth, offering sappy strawberry and raspberry flavors and an intensely spicy character. The finish features a note of candied flowers and hangs on with outstanding tenacity. Remarkably delineated and vibrant Pinot Noir. (ST)" (05/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1970 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (94RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Cheval Blanc dinner at The Ledbury. This has always been a great 1970 Saint Emilion. It has a noticeable deep hue. The nose is unashamedly rustic with mulberry, crushed flowers, wild heather and a touch of chlorophyll. Great definition and vibrancy: a wine wallowing in its secondary aromas. The palate has fine definition and demonstrated much more backbone than the Cheval ’78 tasted alongside. Here, the Merlot is undaunted by the Cabernet Franc and lends it a beguiling fleshiness, especially towards the ferrous finish. This is wonderful, that is a point. (NM)" (09/2011)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 & 2014 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2012 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (96DC, 94RP, 94WE, 93VN, 92JS) and 1-bottle of 2014 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (94WE, 93JS, 92DC, 92W&S, 91RP, 90VN, 90WS). Of the 2012 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon,Decanter writes: "The justly admired Oakville winery has been a Napa Valley fixture since 1979, when it was founded by the late Gil Nickel. From the outset the winemaker has been Dirk Hampson, though today he keeps a knowing eye on the winery’s young winemaking team. But his steady presence, as well as that of the Nickel family, has ensured a consistency of style over the decades. Today all wines are estate-grown, and the vineyards are close to Martha’s Vineyard and other iconic sites. This wine is aged for 17 months in more than 80% new oak, and is always rich and polished."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94VN, 93RP, 93WS). Vinous: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite, violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last year. (AG)" (11/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Buccella Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93JS, 93ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blockbuster 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is more primary, but it does display enormous fruit concentration, massive body, and wonderful purity, balance, and elegance. It is an extraordinarily promising 2007 with awesome fruit, depth and richness as well as a long finish. This offering will be even better with 5-7 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20+ years. Drink through 2034. (RP)" (12/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 93VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has an inky purple color to the rim and represents a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Gloriously pure notes of mulberry, graphite, blackberry and blueberry soar from the glass and cascade over the palate. The wine is full-bodied, there is nary a hard edge to be found in this opulent, velvety texture, pure, rich, stunning Cabernet Sauvignon. It finishes impressively, and the wine is capable of lasting 15-20 years, although it’s certainly accessible now. (RP)" (12/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95DC, 95RP, 95VN, 95WS, 94JG). Vinous: "The 1986 Pichon-Lalande has long been one of the standout wines of the decade, and served blind, this suggests that it might have the 1982 in its sights. In many ways, it is the twin brother of the Cabernet-driven 1996. It bolts out of the stable doors with intense blackberry and cedar aromas -- pure Cabernet -- and reveals touches of mint with time. The palate is medium-bodied and thankfully less obdurate than a decade ago; the tannins have mellowed in recent years and secondary notes of sage and graphite are now more expressive. I once described the 1986 as "broad-shouldered." It remains just that, but it has learned some grace and manners. This is a clear high point for the estate. Drinking window: 2019 - 2040 (NM)" (04/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95VN, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the great efforts of recent years, and not surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a blend of 81% from Howell Mountain, 11% from St. Helena and the rest Calistoga and Mount Veeder. It is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 84% new French oak. At 15.2% natural alcohol, this is a big boy, but also classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with crème de cassis, graphite, licorice, and a touch of spicy oak. Winemaker Laurie Hook, who has since departed as winemaker, really hit a home run with this beauty. The wine could benefit from 7-10 years cellaring and probably last 30 to 40. When all is said and done, this is an instant classic, the wine full-bodied with oodles of crème de cassis, pen ink, graphite and baking spices. It is multi-dimensional, layered, and one of the all

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Spring Mountain Vineyard "Elivette" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (93WE). Wine Enthusiast: "One sip is all it takes to fall in love with this wine. It's soft, gentle and enormously rich, with a velvety mouthfeel. Blended from all five classic Bordeaux varieties, it shows luxurious blackberry jam, cherry pie, red licorice, cocoa, cinnamon spice and sweet-smoky sandalwood flavors. " (02/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. The grapes for this wine come from younger vines on the Harlan and Bond estates and is spearheaded by Bill Harlan's son, Will. The 2009 vintage of Harlan Estate received 97 points from Robert Parker. Winery note: "2009 was a temperate year with spells of warmth but free of extremes. This lengthy growing season cooled as we approached to harvest, embracing morning fog and moderate temperature throughout the picking. The resulting wines have a higher degree of density and flesh than the previous year, with aromatics more in the vein of dark fruit, spice, and earth. With a more masculine tannin structure, the 2009 will age very well over the next twenty to twenty-five years."
