Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1973 Kenwood California Cabernet Sauvignon. From the same vintage as the California wines that won the legendary Judgement of Paris tasting that was put on by Steven Spurrier in 1976. Formerly the Pagani Brothers Winery, Kenwood Vineyards was founded in 1970 and converted from a jug wine facility to a producer of fine wines. The founders would be bought out by Korbel in the '90s before being sold once more to Pernod Ricard in 2014.
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1973 Ridge Vineyards "Langtry Road" Spring Mountain Zinfandel and 2-bottles of 1973 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Sonoma Zinfandel (90VN). Of the 1973 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Sonoma Zinfandel, Vinous writes: "Darker red than the Geyserville '73. A bit wilder and muskier on the nose, with aromas of coffee, leather and game joined after aeration by an element of olive tapenade. Denser, darker and less giving on the palate than the Geyserville example, conveying a strong plumminess along with mocha torrefaction and truffley underbrush nuances. Offers a drier impression than the fruitier Geyserville, perhaps a function of its firm acidity and lower alcohol, finishing with notes of cedar and balsamic vinegar. (ST)" (08/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1973 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 1973 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon cemented the reputation of Napa Valley as a source of world-class Cabernet, when it bested numerous competitors in the now infamous 1976 Judgement of Paris blind tasting. In his classic recounting of the seminal wine competition, George Taber notes, "The 1973 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon stood out among its California counterparts, in many ways, by what it was not. In one of his diaries, the English wine critic Harry Waugh quoted Winiarski as saying that he wanted to produce a 'sufficiently powerful wine which, while not too massive, would combine both style and elegance.' This, wrote Waugh, represented a swing away from the California's 'huge Cabernet Sauvignons' to a wine of 'more finesse and elegance, in effect more along the lines of the Medocs from Bordeaux.'"

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1973 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (94JG). John Gilman: ". . .Monte Bello that very much showed the more “Graves-like” personality of this wine in many vintages, as it offers up a superb, “cool” fruit-toned bouquet of cassis, leather, cigar ash, a hint of eucalyptus and petroleum jelly, and a complex base of gravelly soil tones. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and very complex, with beautiful focus, fine mid-palate depth and a very refined, poised and meltingly tannic finish of great length and dimension. The ’73 Monte Bello has retained excellent acidity (perhaps due to it only weighing in at 12.8% alcohol), which has kept the wine fresh, vibrant and showing great grip on the backend. A very finesseful and elegant vintage of Monte Bello, which is not short on either depth or power." (07/2008)
Starting Bid: $900.00
