Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Paul Hobbs "Ellen Lane Estate" Russian River Valley Chardonnay (93ST). Int'l Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Pungent, mineral- and spice-accented orange pith, poached pear and fennel scents, with a hint of smokiness. Shows impressive density and chewy texture, with sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are lifted by juicy acidity. Pretty serious chardonnay, with no easy sweetness and excellent depth of flavor. Closes with powerful thrust, firm mineral cut and lingering ginger and anise notes." (06/2013)

Bid on this 5-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1978 Louis Martini "Special Selection" California Pinot Noir, 2-bottles of 1982 Belvedere "Bacigalupi Vineyard" Sonoma County Pinot Noir, 1-bottle of 1983 Belvedere "Bacigalupi Vineyard" Sonoma County Pinot Noir, and 1-bottle of 1984 Sanford Central Coast Pinot Noir. Of the 1978 Louis Martini "Special Selection" California Pinot Noir, The story of Louis Martini is a key chapter in Napa's winemaking history. Genovese immigrant Louis Martini established his first business in 1922, smack in the middle of Prohibition (in force in the US from 1919 until 1933). He was therefore limited to making "sacramental and medicinal" wines at first. With the end of prohibition, Martini became one the first winemakers in California to produce vintage varietal table wines in quantity, and at reasonable prices.

Bid on this bottle of 1963 Niepoort Vintage Port (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Firm, with great harmony of fruit and tannins, this superb Port needs an hour or two of decanting. Medium ruby, with a very ripe, earthy berry nose, medium-bodied, with an excellent backbone of tannins and a stunning amount of grape and violet flavors. Can drink now but will improve with age. (Web-1989)"

Bid on this magnum of 2019 Sine Qua Non "Estate - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Central Coast Grenache (1.5L). The reviewers we follow have not published reviews on this wine yet, but Jeb Dunnuck gave the 2018 vintage a perfect 100, and shared these thoughts on the producer: "I’ve been visiting with Sine Qua Non for a decade now, and I never cease to be amazed at the quality consistently coming from this address. In addition, Krankl somehow manages to deliver brilliance with just about any variety out there, and whether it’s Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Touriga Nacional, Roussanne, or even Petit Manseng, you can expect a truly riveting wine, as well as a wine with singular characteristics."

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1998 Beringer "Nightingale Private Reserve" Napa Valley Botrytis Dessert Wine (375ml) (94WE, 91WS), 1-bottle of 2003 Beringer "Nightingale Private Reserve" Napa Valley Botrytis Dessert Wine (375ml), 1-bottle of 2006 Grgich Hills Late Harvest "Violetta" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml), 1-bottle of 2007 Beringer "Nightingale" Napa Valley Botrytis Dessert Wine (375ml) (91ST), and 2-bottles of 2012 Grgich Hills Late Harvest "Violetta" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml) (90WE). Of the 1998 Beringer "Nightingale Private Reserve" (375ml), Wine Enthusiast writes: "Made since the 1970s, and always at the top rung of California dessert wines. The cool vintage actually aided the wine, since it prodded the development of botrytis. Elaborate and unctuous, the apricot and peach flavors are very sweet, but crisp acidity provides balance. The texture is pure velvet, right through the long, sweet finish. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2002)
Starting Bid: $115.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Kapcsándy "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 98JS, 96VN). Wine Advocate: "Little can be added to the greatness of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine (600 cases) is truly stunning in its dense, crème de cassis and blackberry-scented nose with a hint of barbecue smoke and forest floor. Tasting like a ripe vintage of Château Latour from Pauillac, the wine has amazing richness and a savory, expansive mouthfeel, but tiptoes across the palate like a ballerina. A wine of magnificent richness and intensity, but vibrancy, purity and overall equilibrium, this is a staggeringly great wine and another tribute to the Kapcsándy family’s extraordinary professionalism and meticulous attention to detail in their vineyard.

Of the 2018 Fingers Crossed (Faethm) "Off The Record" Santa Maria Valley Grenache, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "It has a rich, savory, almost Rayas-like bouquet of gamey red and black fruits, ground pepper, toasted spice, spring flowers, and hints of bloody meat. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, and elegant on the palate, with plenty of stem influence, this complex, layered, brilliantly done 2018 is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 10-15 years. It’s a stunning example of Grenache from California!" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $620.00

Bid on this 10-bottle lot of 2017 Alphonse Mellot "La Moussière" Sancerre (93WE, 90RP). Wine Enthusiast: "This wine comes from Mellot's home domaine of La Moussière, It is young and intense, with a mix of spice, concentrated citrus and crisp acidity. The depth of flavor in this wine is extraordinary and merits aging. Drink from 2020. *Top 100 Wines of 2018* (RV)" (12/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1977 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. John Gilman: "As I mentioned in the introduction, the 1977 Clos du Vall is one of those lower octane middleweights that one can find in the vintage, but it is perfectly successful in its style and a lovely wine with plenty of life still ahead of it. This is always one of the most Médoc-like wines stylistically to be found in Napa in this era, and this is certainly the case with this very good 1977. The wine delivers an aromatic constellation of cassis, dark berries, cigar ash, a good base of soil tones, a hint of dried eucalyptus, tobacco leaf and a dollop of upper register paraffin. On the palate the wine is medium-full and only moderately ripe, but poised and balanced, with good intensity of flavor, fine complexity, melted tannins and a long, focused and classy finish." (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $260.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2018 Ridge Vineyards "Frediani" Calistoga Charbono. This wine is 100% Charbono. From the winery: "Charbono has a long history in the north of Napa Valley, where it was planted with (and sold as) barbera. Also known as bonarda in Argentina and corbeau in France, the official name of the grape is douce noir. Its origins are the Savoie Region of France. Charbono ripens late (at, or after cabernet sauvignon) and has supple tannins and thick skins. There are only a few acres remaining in California, mostly clustered just south of Calistoga. Since the 1970s, Jim Frediani (pronounced with a hard “a”) has been farming his family’s vineyard that spans the Silverado Trail. The oldest block on the ranch dates to the mid-1930s, with 40 and 20-year-old vines supplying most of the fruit for this wine. Black licorice, mint and tobacco on the nose, full rich palate with plentiful plum and cassis fruit, supple tannins and a persistent finish."
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Turley "Old Vines" California Zinfandel (90VN, 90WS). Vinous: "The 2015 Zinfandel Old Vines is a fabulous introduction to the Turley range. Succulent red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, tobacco and menthol infuse this fleshy, succulent Zinfandel. All the elements are in the right place. This is an absolutely delicious wine, with plenty to recommend it, including its price. (AG)" (10/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1980 Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico "Mazzano". The top of the line from Masi, their single vineyard "Mazzano" received 3 Bicchieri from the Gambero Rosso. With power, depth and superb concentration, the classic aromas of ripe plum and smokey earth interwoven with chocolate and leather all culminate in a long and dynamic finish. Very Limited.
Current Bid: $110.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Gerard Raphet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Combottes" Cuvee Unique (91BH). Burghound: "There is a definite sauvage character to the wild red berry fruit, earth and lightly spiced-infused nose. The punchy but lilting middle weight flavors exude a fine minerality and are supported by refined tannins on the delicious yet again altogether serious finish that delivers both excellent persistence and impeccable balance." (01/2013)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Kistler "Cuvée Cathleen" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay (99JS, 98JD, 97RP, 97VN, 94WS). James Suckling: "A unique chardonnay that has dried spices, such as nutmeg, cloves and salt to the dried apples and lemons. Fresh-baked pie crust as well. It’s full, yet tight and composed, with phenolics that spread across the palate and melt into the wine. Lasts for minutes. Mountain magic. 500 cases. Drink or hold." (03/2022)
Current Bid: $230.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1998 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (90WS), 1-bottle of 2005 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (93WS, 90CG), 1-bottle of 2012 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (94WE, 93RP, 93WS, 92VN, 91BH), and 1-bottle of 2015 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (94JS, 94VN, 94WE, 94WS, 91BH, 90RP). Of the 2012 Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir, Wine Enthusiast writes: "This includes grapes from the winery’s Jerusalem Hill vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, in addition to the Dundee Hills sites, hence the more general Willamette Valley designation. It was aged in 65% new French oak for 16 months. It’s open and generous, offering bright berry, cherry and red currant fruit matched to defining acids, all set in a fine-tuned frame of new oak.

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including a 2006 Testarossa "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (92WE, 90WS), a 2008 Testarossa "Pisoni Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93WE), a 2009 Testarossa "Doctor's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (95WE), a 2009 Testarossa "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (91ST, 91VN), a 2009 Testarossa "Sleepy Hollow Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93WE); and a 2018 Testarossa "Doctor's" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93VN) of which Wine Enthusiast writes: "So delicious, so dazzlingly seductive, it's impossible not to fall in love with this wine. It detonates on the palate with an explosion of cherries and raspberries, and wonderfully smoky, buttery complexities from oak. Drily crisp and finely structured in smooth, dense tannins, it offers great pleasure now, and should develop over the next 6–8 years. Production was low, but it's worth a search." (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 No Girls "La Paciencia Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo (97JD, 94RP, 93JS, 93VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "Rose petals, forest floor, spring flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, and loads of spice all emerge from the 2017 Tempranillo. It almost reminds me of a Cote Rotie with its feminine, floral, complex bouquet. Nicely textured on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness, it has great tannins, perfect balance, and just has everything in the right places. It benefits from air, so give it a decant if drinking any time soon. It’s going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years or more. " (04/2020)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1988 Rieussec, Sauternes (95RP, 90ST, 90WS). Wine Advocate: "Tasted in Sauternes with Charles Chevalier, the 1988 Rieussec is a vintage that Chevalier himself claimed to be his favorite. I can understand why. It has an unerringly youthful bouquet with vibrant citrus fruit, wild honey, mandarin and mineral scents, a bouquet that seems to have electricity flowing through it. The same can be said for the palate that is full of tension and vigor, almost clinical in terms of focus with alluring viscosity and wonderful length. This bowled me over with its charm and breeding. Hunt a bottle down and share with your best friends—this is a superlative Rieussec, one of the best produced. (NM)" (01/2017)

Bid on this 6-bottle Sine Qua Non "Eleven Confessions Vineyard" tasting lot in original wood; including 3-bottles of 2020 Grenache and 3-bottles of 2020 Syrah. Jeb Dunnuck's notes on the producer: "I’ve been visiting with Sine Qua Non for a decade now, and I never cease to be amazed at the quality consistently coming from this address. In addition, Krankl somehow manages to deliver brilliance with just about any variety out there, and whether it’s Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Touriga Nacional, Roussanne, or even Petit Manseng, you can expect a truly riveting wine, as well as a wine with singular characteristics. Unfortunately, it’s all too common, particularly for those who don’t drink the wines often, to assume all California cult wines are over-ripe or heavy. The reality, however, couldn’t be more different, and great wines deliver intensity and depth while staying light on their feet and elegant." (08/2022)
Current Bid: $1,618.00

Bid on this 5-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2002 Archipel Sonoma/Napa Bordeaux Blend (90RP), 1-bottle of 2002 Viña Robles "Signature" Paso Robles Red Blend, 2-bottles of 2003 Prevail "West Face" Alexander Valley Red Blend (92WE, 90RP), and 1-bottle of 2005 Pharaoh Moans "WestSide" Paso Robles Syrah (91ST). Of the 2003 Prevail "West Face" Alexander Valley Red Blend, Wine Enthusiast writes: "Very similar to the winery's Back Forty, with a little Syrah added to the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this luscious wine has a chewy, cherry, mu shu plum sauce and new oak vanilla deliciousness. The chewiness is from mountain tannins. The wine is soft, but with just enough acidity for balance. Very fine, really tasty. A brand new label from Ferrari-Carano and one to watch." (12/2006)
Current Bid: $115.00

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (95WE, 92BH, (90-91RP)). Wine Enthusiast: "Power, density, huge richness--all the attributes you would expect from a Corton-Charlemagne. But, this being 2006, the ripe tropical fruits are crispened with acidity which cuts through the impressive opulence and ripeness. (RV)" (10/2008)
Current Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Ridge Vineyards "Buchignani Ranch" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (93VN). Vinous: "The 2017 Zinfandel Buchignani Ranch is a terrific choice for readers who enjoy wines with a bit of age. Time has softened some of the primary fruit, but also seems to have added weight. Black cherry, incense, tobacco, leather, licorice and cloves. There's quite a bit of Carignane, which probably also explains the wine's richness. Readers should expect a virile, brooding Zinfandel with tons of character. (AG)" (10/2022)
Current Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (100JD, 100RP, 100VN, 99TWI, 98JA, 98JS, 97DC, 97WS). Vinous: "The 2016 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is every bit as regal as it has always been. Towering and spectacularly rich in the glass, the 2016 captures every ounce of potential is showed from barrel. The 2016 is a vivid, dramatically sweeping wine that will leave readers week at the knees. Beams of tannin give the 2016 soaring intensity that is matched by a host of aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. Blackberry jam, graphite, spice, menthol, licorice, pencil shavings and spice are all finely sketched in a bold, savory Pauillac that hits all the right notes. The 2016 Pichon Comtesse has been riveting on each of the four occasions I have tasted it from barrel thus far, making it easily one of the wines of the vintage. Nicolas Glumineu and his team turned out an epic Pichon Comtesse in 2016. Don't miss it! (AG)" (01/2019)
Current Bid: $555.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot Fairendes" ((90-92BH)). Burghound: "This is quite firmly reduced and presently unreadable. On the palate the relatively full-bodied flavors possess more size and weight yet they're more finely textured while culminating in a complex, palate coating and slightly firmer finish. This clean and dry effort should reward the better part of a decade of cellar time yet be approachable after only 3 to 4." (06/2016)
Current Bid: $250.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Paul Hobbs "Nathan Coombs Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97JS, 97VN, 96RP). Vinous: "Vivid and utterly captivating, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Nathan Coombs Estate Vineyard is also a wonderfully complete wine that brings together aromatic complexity, unctuous fruit and powerful structure, all signatures of this great Napa Valley vintage. Today, the 2013 is even better than it was from bottle. Drops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot round out the blend in a wine that captures the very best of site and year.Paul Hobbs fans will want to take note of a few changes in the lineup. Hobbs has decided to eliminate the Stagecoach Cabernet from his range, which is not entirely surprising given the recent acquisition of the Nathan Coombs Vineyard, a site that produces Cabernets in a similar vein. The last few vintages from Coombs are super-impressive, to say the least. (AG)" (10/2015)
Current Bid: $450.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (97DC, 95JS, 95VN, 94RP, 94WS). Decanter: "Still remarkably dark, intense and youthful in appearance, this Mouton shows more flamboyant characters on the nose than other vintages, with spices, cigar-box and blackcurrant leaf all to the fore. Rich, dense and fleshy palate with plenty of stuffing for further ageing. An impressive Mouton which lives up to the ‘star’ billing for the 1995 vintage with nearly all of the components in great balance. (AH)" (09/2021)
Starting Bid: $1,275.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (97JS, 96DC, 96JM, 96WS, 95IWR, 94JG, 94VN, 93RP, 92BH, 92W&S). James Suckling: "This is a DP that shows the ripeness of the 2009 vintage yet remains full of energy. Gorgeous aromas of cream, apple, mango, honeysuckle, and chalk follow through to a full body and super fine, tight texture. Dense and agile. Vinous. It’s like a top grand cru white Burgundy. Think Bâtard-Montrachet. More depth than the 2006. " (07/2017)
Starting Bid: $1,140.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1979 Diamond Creek "Volcanic Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94JG). John Gilman: "The stunning nose soars from the glass in a blaze of cassis, a bit of grilled meat, gentle tarry tones, a beautiful base of stony soil and a lovely topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, tangy and beautifully complex, with a rock solid core of fruit, outstanding focus, length and grip and still just a touch of backend tannin to carry this wine far into the future. An utterly classic and legendary bottle of California Cabernet!" (05/2013)
Starting Bid: $810.00

Bid on this magnum of 1997 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (93ST, 92RP, 91WE). Int'l Wine Cellar: "Very good deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of crystallized red berries, cassis, graphite and grilled nuts. Lush, sweet and minerally; already displays compelling inner-mouth complexity and superb delineation. Youthful fruit flavors show less of the meaty quality that characterized some recent vintages of this wine. Very strong underlying backbone. The wine's lovely sweetness carries through to the very long finish, which features dusty, even tannins. 93(+?) points" (05/2000)
Starting Bid: $185.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2020 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 99DC, 99JS, 96VN) in original wood. James Suckling: "Fabulous aromas of cabernet sauvignon with blackcurrants, blueberries, bark, fresh mushrooms and violets, follow through to a full body with an elegance that builds at the finish, leaving you with a freshness and minerality that goes on for minutes. Unique wine in so many ways. A blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot and 6% cabernet franc. " (03/2023)
Current Bid: $6,350.00

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Petrus, Pomerol ((93-96ST), 93RP, 93WS). Int'l Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Brilliant nose features kirsch, dark berries, and iron scents, with an overlay of perfumed, spicy oak. Lush, sweet and fragrant in the mouth, with a sappy freshness; clearly made from low yields. Finishes with toothcoating but suave tannins and remarkable persistence; stains the palate with spicy bitter cherry and citric skin flavor. (ST)" (05/1996)
Current Bid: $1,710.00

Bid on this 4-half-bottle lot of 1975 Petrus, Pomerol (375ml) (98RP, 97VN, 95ST, 93WS). Wine Advocate: One of the most rustic and powerful Petrus of the last 25 years, this wine still has a murky garnet/plum/purple color, a gorgeous nose of overripe black cherries, mocha, caramel, chocolate, and a hint of iron and blood. Full-bodied, super-concentrated, with massive tannin and extract, this behemoth Petrus can be enjoyed but still seems another 5-10 years away from maturity. It is certainly a 50-70 year wine, with exquisite concentration and intensity, but seemingly the rough edges will no doubt be less appealing to those looking for pure seamlessness. Perhaps that will emerge with bottle age. (RP) 98+ (01/2003)
Starting Bid: $1,840.00

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Hundred Acre "Few and Far Between" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 100RP). Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between has a deep garnet-purple color, charging out of the gate with vivacious scents of stewed black cherries, crème de cassis, Indian spices and sandalwood, with touches of menthol, pencil lead and black truffles. Full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, featuring rock-solid, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness to support the multilayered, shimmery black and blue fruits, finishing with an opulent burst of exotic spices. (LPB)" (12/2021)
Current Bid: $405.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Domaine Robert Arnoux Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Suchots". Six generations of Arnoux have tended the family vines in Burgundy since 1858, making it no surprise that the wines of their domaine are consistent winners - both current and library releases. The grapes are farmed without chemical interventions, and have always been fully destemmed before fermentation.
Current Bid: $215.00

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (92VN). Vinous: "The 2002 Ornellaia (magnum) is a modern-day equivalent of the 1994, which is to say a very pretty wine where all of the elements are beautifully-balanced within the context of small vintage. Still, the wine’s sheer concentration and sense of harmony are truly remarkable, especially considering the cool, rainy conditions that affected Tuscany that year. In the magnum format, the 2002 Ornellaia is particularly impressive. . . 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The component wines spent six months in French oak, 70% new. The final blend was assembled and the wine was racked back into barrique for a further six months of aging prior to being bottled. (AG)" (12/2009)
Current Bid: $165.00

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac (90RP, 90ST, 90VN). Vinous: "The 1999 Les Forts de Latour was cropped at 38hl/ha. It is noticeably deep in color with just faint signs of bricking on the rim. It offers an impressive array of aromas: raspberry preserve, wild strawberry, cedar and light tobacco scents, probably more intense than I would anticipate after 20 years. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, quite tensile opening. There is a little more sharpness here compared to the 1989 Les Fort de Latour, and slightly higher acidity (at a surprising pH of 3.73). The compact but lively finish reveals hints of charcoal and tobacco. This is aging very gracefully – quite punchy compared to the 1989 yet thoroughly enjoyable. Drink 2019-2032. (NM)" (09/2019)
Current Bid: $146.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Louis Latour Corton-Grancey Grand Cru ((90-93BH), 93WE, 92WS). Wine Enthusiast: "This is one of Louis Latour’s flagship reds, a powerful wine, with its dense, solid fruits, big tannins and concentration. Those black plum juices are building up behind a firm layer of dryness. Wait until 2012 before even considering drinking. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (08/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot (93JD, 93JS, 92VN, 91RP, 90WS). James Suckling: "A soft and velvety Merlot with dark berries and chocolate. Walnuts, too. Full-bodied, round and velvety. Shows Merlot DNA. 20-plus vineyard age. Delicious." (11/2018)
Current Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Figeac, St-Emilion (95DC, 94JG, 94JS, 94RP, 94VN, 92ST). Decanter: "The colour has been gently turning to brick ever since 2001 as we head through the vertical, and here we have a soft brick red. A legendary vintage, of course, that keeps surprising by how well it is holding up. This is still full of the rich pleasures of a late summer evening, even if you know the sun will set soon, and it makes you want to enjoy every last drop. Aromatics of cold ash, gentle woodsmoke and soft spices. The fruit is very much now at its gentlest, with notes of wild strawberries, salted caramel and wild roses. Wonderful. (JA)" (10/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Kapcsándy "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 99RP, 97JS, 96DC, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard is pure perfection and undeniably one of the greatest wines in this terrific vintage. With a Château Latour like stature and depth, full-bodied richness, and incredible notes of blue fruits, crushed violets, tobacco, forest floor, and huge minerality, this tight, backward, concentrated 2015 is for those with patience and a cold cellar, but it’s a legendary wine in the making. Bravo!" (12/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 1977 Chateau Montelena Estate Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (92RP). Wine Advocate: "There is something reassuring about seeing a bottle of Chateau Montelena. This classic, old Napa Valley winery is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, but they can also fashion wonderful Chardonnay from the Alexander and Napa valleys." (10/1993)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (93VN, 93WS, 92JS, 91RP). Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is terrific. Bright, nuanced and savory, the straight Russian River Pinot has all the attributes of this strong vintage. Sweet floral notes round out a Pinot that is understated and silky. This is a rare appellation-level Pinot that could use another few years in bottle to fully flesh out. (AG)" (01/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (98JD, 97JS, 95DC, 95RP, 94VN, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "It offers a huge nose of blackcurrants, blackberry, scorched earth, graphite, and cedarwood. Deep, rich, supple, and sexy, with a seamless, incredibly elegant texture, it builds with time in the glass and is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Sonoma. 98+ " (06/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2019 Ultramarine "Keefer Ranch Vineyard" Blanc de Blancs Sonoma Coast Sparkling Wine and 1-bottle of 2019 Ultramarine "Michael Mara" Blanc de Blancs Sonoma Coast Sparkling Wine. Of the 2019 Ultramarine "Keefer Ranch Vineyard" Blanc de Blancs Sonoma Coast Sparkling Wine, Antonio Galloni of Vinous writes writes: " At Ultramarine, the wines are done with blocked malo, aged in oak with minimal SO2 and bottled with little or no dosage. Cruse recently introduced the Tradition under his own Cruse Wine Co. label. That wine is a Pinot Noir/Chardonnay blend from a variety of vineyard sources, done with a small amount of perpetual reserve. It undergoes full malo and is aged in both barrique and steel, with no SO2, and bottled with no dosage. It is also the steal in this range. Quite simply, I can't recommend these wines highly enough."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1981 La Mission Haut-Brion, Graves (92JG, 90RP). John Gilman: "The 1981 La Mission is a very strong example of the vintage and the wine is drinking at its apogee at age thirty-five. The bouquet offers up a fine, complex blend of cassis, dark berries, cigar ash, a touch of new leather, a fine base of dark soil tones and a touch of La Mission’s medicinal overtones. On the palate the wine id deep, full-bodied and quite powerful in personality for an ’81, with broad shoulders, a superb core, fine soil signature and a long, still modestly chewy and tangy finish. This is not the most elegant example of La Mission, but it has depth and stuffing and delivers plenty of enjoyment. Ironically, I like the ’81 La Tour Haut-Brion almost as much as the La Mission in this vintage, though in its early years, the ’81 La Mission was much more elegant than it is today and was clearly the more interesting bottle."

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1980 Ceretto "Zonchera" Barolo (96WS) and 1-bottle of 1987 Ceretto "Asij" Barbaresco. Of the 1980 Ceretto "Zonchera" Barolo, Wine Spectator writes: "No tasting note given, but highly recommended." (02/1986)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" (94VN, 93RP). Vinous: "The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru is showing quite a lot of reduction on the nose, which is quite savory at first, with hints of dried blood infusing the black and blue fruit. The focused, well-balanced palate is full of energy, delivering very fine, supple tannin and a perfectly pitched line of acidity. It doesn’t quite deliver the complexity one would expect, although the finish is undoubtedly refined and persistent. Good potential, but it needs five years in bottle. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (NM)" (11/2018)
Current Bid: $725.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Penultimate (Promontory) Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 94VN) in original wood. Vinous: "The 2016 Penultimate is fascinating to taste next to its sibling, as it has all of the qualities of this great vintage - namely complexity, dimension and stature - just with less intensity. Bright saline notes give the 2016 its nervy personality, but there is plenty of finesse too. Lavender, sage, gravel and spice play off a core of dark fruit in this stylish Cabernet Sauvignon from the Promontory estate. (AG)" (01/2022)
