Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 D.R. Stephens Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93JS, 92RP, 91JD). James Suckling: "This is a plush and deep-set red with a very assertive palate that has plenty of ripe red fruit and a vibrant mulberry, red-plum and boysenberry palate. Neat and detailed Cabernet. " (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100DC, 100JS, 100RP, 100VN). Vinous: "The 2013 Dominus overwhelms all the senses with its magnificent overall balance and towering intensity. Deep and nearly impenetrable in the glass, the 2013 boasts off the charts dry extract and overall power. Violets, smoke, black cherries, menthol, incense, crème de cassis and dark spices are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. Even better in bottle than it was in barrel, the 2013 is utterly magnificent. This is a remarkably vivid, nuanced wine considering its sheer size. (AG)" (10/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the finest Pauillac wines, a vintage that portended what was to come under the tenure of Alfred Tesseron. It is consistent with the bottle from earlier this year with that lovely, graphite-tinged nose and that cohesive, fresh, buoyant nose that is less foursquare when compared directly with the likes of Grand Puy Lacoste and Cos d’Estournel. This is a point and is a great achievement in the context of the season. (NM)" (07/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1987 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon and 1-bottle of 1994 Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (90RP, 90WS). Of the 1994 Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The enticing 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, with a saturated dark purple color, offers up attractive, youthful aromas of lead pencil, vanillin, minerals, spice, and blackcurrant fruit. A typical mountain Cabernet with copious quantities of tannin, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated, impressively-endowed wine is well-crafted, yet backward and in need of 4-5 years of cellaring. Patience will be a virtue. (RP)" (08/1997)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ((96-98RP), (95-97JD)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque purple-black colored 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard needs a fair bit of swirling to unlock vibrant notes of dark chocolate-covered cherries, crème de cassis and blueberry preserves, plus suggestions of menthol, fertile loam, licorice and dusty soil. The full-bodied palate is rich and decadent, delivering velvety tannins and soft acidity with loads of spicy sparks coming through on the finish. (LBP)" (03/2021)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Realm "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98JD, 98JS, 98RP, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, it rolls sensuously out of the glass with decadent scents of boysenberries, black cherries, redcurrant jelly and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of bouquet garni, black soil and iron ore. Full-bodied, the taut, tightly knit black and red fruit has a firm structure of ripe, grainy tannins and bags of freshness, finishing very long with loads of earth and mineral nuances coming through. (LPB) 98+" (10/2020)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (98DC, 98JS, 97JG, 96ST, 95RP, 95WS). James Suckling: "This is a phenomenal 1982 and it remains the most drinkable of the first growths. A strong iodine character here enveloped by delicious currants, shaved chocolate and spices. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a refined texture. Wonderful balance." (06/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Founded in 1966 by winemaking pioneer and icon Robert Mondavi, the winery that bears his name is an enduring presence and shining symbol of California's Napa Valley. The first major winery built in Napa Valley in the three decades following the repeal of Prohibition, Robert Mondavi Winery created the foundation for the modern-day California wine industry. An ardent believer that wines should reflect their origins, Mr. Mondavi charted a winemaking course that is now legendary. On the 1986 vintage, Robert Parker: notes "1986 was a transitional year for the Mondavi philosophy of Cabernet Sauvignon winemaking. The unfiltered school of winemaking, which ended in 1974, resumed in 1987, yet had not taken full hold in 1986. Nevertheless, Mondavi had already moved away from the excessive manipulation and acidification practiced during the 1975-1985 era."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Shafer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90WS). Wine Spectator: "No tasting note given." (06/1985)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1995 Niebaum-Coppola "Rubicon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Aging well, with a complex band of currant, blackberry and cherry fruit that's well-centered and deftly balanced, with just the right amount of tannins and acidity. (JL, Web Only-2005)"
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 1990 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (96RP, 94JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Mission Haut Brion is a wine that just gives so much pleasure that it seems almost immoral to criticize. For sure, it is not in the same league as the awe-inspiring 1989, yet it has such an engaging, quintessential La Mission bouquet full of warm gravel, chestnut, morels and bay leaf scents that you just fall instantly under its charms. It seems to just grow in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with great depth but is still a little grainy in texture, and I noticed how it evolved almost a Musigny-like personality with time in the glass. I suggested back in 2014 that it might improve with continued bottle age. Perhaps now I believe that it has reached the top of its plateau, yet the substance and the persistence—the energy—of this Pessac-Léognan suggests that it will give 20 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)" (06/2017)
Starting Bid: $480.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (96RP, 93JG, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great effort from Rauzan-Ségla and one of the finest wines made at the estate in many a decade, this youthful, exhilarating effort still reveals a dense ruby/purple color with no signs of lightening. Tasting more like a 5 to 8-year-old wine than one that is already 16 years of age, this wine reluctantly offers up a nose of liquid minerals intermixed with tobacco, smoke, black currants, melted licorice, and hints of blueberry and compost. Very full-bodied but still exceptionally tannic in an intense, concentrated, very delineated style, this wine remains an infant in terms of its development.(RP)" (10/2002)
Starting Bid: $420.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Louis M. Martini Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bigger, richer 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petite Sirah aged 16 months in 50% new French and American casks. This is a bigger wine and close to 2% higher in alcohol at 15.5%. There are 11, 000 cases of this big, full-bodied, boisterous Cabernet Sauvignon that has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of underbrush, forest floor, tobacco leaf and oodles of blackcurrants and black cherries, with a touch of woodsmoke. The full-bodied wine hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, fruit and purity. This is a beauty-dense, rich, and structured, but capable of lasting 20 or more years.It is hard to believe that the iconic Louis M. Martini Winery first made Napa Cabernet Sauvignon in 1933. (RP)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $165.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 95ST, 94WS, 92RP) in original wood. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, violet, mint and anise. Lush, seamless and voluptuous, in the style of the year. Very pure dark fruit and mineral flavors are given added sex appeal by bitter chocolate and espresso nuances. Finishes very long and suave, with supple tannins and outstanding early appeal. (ST)" (05/2012)
Starting Bid: $1,320.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - T6" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ((97-99JD), (96-98RP)). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon T6 offers more minerality as well as a touch of iron and black olive along with impressive red and black fruits, full body, and a beautiful elegance with time in the glass. It’s another brilliant vintage, and it’s worth noting that the Old Sparky release is pulled largely from a selection of this cuvée." (01/2021)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Quinault L'Enclos, St-Emilion (93ST, 92WS, 90JD). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cherry, minerals, iron and smoked meat. Juicy and sappy for the year, with lovely energy to the concentrated flavors of cherry, minerals, smoke, flowers and earth. Very sophisticated, shapely wine with a long, ripely tannic finish throwing off notes of smoke, minerals and iron. (ST)" (06/2008)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Repris "Right Bank - Moon Mountain Vineyard" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend. This "Right Bank" blend from Repris is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc from the Moon Mountain District in Sonoma.
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (95JS, 94WS, 93RP, 92ST). James Suckling: "This shows intense aromas of mint, lead pencil and currants that follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a finish with tension and freshness. " (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $750.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2006 Groth Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (93W&S, 90WE). Wine & Spirits: "Packed with red and black currant flavors, this wine has the cool, refreshing feel of the forest. Tannins frame the berry fruit, providing contrast in umami flavors of wood-ear mushrooms, both tannins and fruit lasting in a finely structured, luxurious finish. " (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (100JD, 100RP, (98-100WE), 98JS, 96ST, 96WS, 95DC, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years. The tannins are elevated, but they are sweet and beautifully integrated as are the acidity, wood and alcohol (which must be in excess of 14%). (RP) " (12/2011)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1978 Beychevelle, St-Julien (91JG). John Gilman: "The 1978 Beychevelle could still do with a few more years in the cellar to fully blossom, but with a bit of extended aeration, it begins to emerge from its adolescent stage. Given the combination of the 1978 vintage’s slightly green edge and Beychevelle’s propensity to show a bit of bell pepper as well when it is still on the young side, there is a touch of herbaceousness here that may be a bit off-putting to those with a low tolerance to pyrazines. But the nose is complex and lovely at the same time, as it offers up scents of cherries, a touch of bell pepper (already moving in the direction of chipotles), cigar ash, lovely soil tones, a bit of tobacco leaf and a faint whiff of cedar. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and complex, with fine elegance, moderate tannins, fine intensity of flavor and impressive length and grip on the tangy finish." (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $330.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Lagrange, St-Julien (96JS, 94W&S, 94WE, 93VN, 92JG). James Suckling: "Stunning now. A fabulous nose of currants, crushed raspberry and blackberry. Full- bodied, with perfectly integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. " (07/2014)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Cantemerle, Haut Medoc. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark ruby with some pink at the edge, this elegant textbook Cantemerle has medium body and a very floral, sweet nose of plums, currants, white flowers, cedar, and mineral. Low in acidity, with light and supple tannin, this is a classic lighter weight Bordeaux that is all charm and finesses. (RP)" (12/2002)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1991 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is just beginning to drink spectacularly well. The fabulous 1991 Reserve is the quintessential Napa Cabernet that represents a synthesis in style between the elegance of a first-growth Bordeaux and the ripe, intense, generous fruit of Napa Valley. (RP)" (08/2002) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Striking, with a solid core of rich dark berry, currant and boysenberry flavors. Dense and powerful for a Mondavi Reserve. Still promising. (JL)" (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 La Dauphine, Fronsac (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It’s amazing how good this wine has become since the property was sold by the Jean-Pierre Moueix firm to Jean Halley. The outstanding, sexy, full-bodied 2005 is a 5, 000-case blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. With beautiful purity, symmetry, and power as well as elegance, it is a fresh, full, soft Fronsac with sensational concentration and depth. (RP)" (08/2008)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 98RP, 96VN, 94ST, 94WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasting the three most recent vintages of the Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon was not only a privilege, but also an intellectual and hedonistic turn-on. The 2010 Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a magnificent wine. Full-bodied and opulent with terrific purity, an intriguing, gravelly, wet stone-like minerality, and a sensational perfume, it has a spectacular finish that lasted over 45 seconds, offering up copious quantities of black currants, black cherries, cedar and vanillin. It is one of the superstars of the vintage. It is accessible now because of the sweetness of the tannins, but make no mistake, there is plenty of structure underlying the luxurious fruit levels. (RP)" (10/2013)
Starting Bid: $1,365.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (95JS, 95RP, 94JD, 94WE, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this spectacular 2003 hits all the sweet spots on the palate. A glorious bouquet of cedarwood, jammy black currants, cherries, licorice and truffle is followed by a dense, opulently textured, full-bodied wine with terrific purity and freshness as well as deep, velvety textured tannins. (RP)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Concha y Toro "Don Melchor" Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto (94DC, 93RP, 93WS, 91W&S, 90WE). Decanter: "Dark and powerful, like a tightly coiled spring. A dazzling array of minerals, tar and dark fruit; invigorating freshness, with refined tannins. Should evolve beautifully. (MA)" (06/2018)
Starting Bid: $285.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Myriad "Beckstoffer Georges III" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96JD, 94WS, 93JS, 93RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from 5 separate blocks in the vineyard, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III has a Bordeaux-like (Saint-Julien?) bouquet of black currants, graphite, lead pencil and leafy herbs. It's ripe, full-bodied, and structured on the palate, with fine tannin, beautiful purity of fruit, a solid mid-palate, and a great finish. Like all these 2015s from Mike it will have two decades of longevity." (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (93RP, 92JS, 92ST, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep plum, currant, and mineral notes emerge from the concentrated, beautifully balanced, pure 1999 Haut Brion. It seems to be cut from the same mold as years such as 1979 and 1985. There is a hint of graphite in the abundant fruit. The wine is medium to full-bodied, nuanced, subtle, deep, and provocatively elegant. It is made in a style that only Haut Brion appears capable of achieving. The finish is extremely long, the tannins sweet, and the overall impression one of delicacy interwoven with power and ripeness. (RP)" (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $720.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien (98DC, 95W&S, 94JS, 94RP, 93VN, 93WS, 92JD). Decanter: "1998 was a late flowering year but the grapes achieved perfect ripeness by harvest time. It's an excellent vintage that's generally known as a Right Bank year, but is more than holding its own over in St-Julien. At this point we are starting to see what a mature Léoville can do: the edges are softening to a russet colour and the cigar-box edge is apparent, alongside notes of hedgerow, undergrowth, rosemary, black cherry, cassis, and a touch of menthol on the finish. (JA)" (11/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (95JG, 95RP, 95VN, 95WS, 94ST). Vinous: "The 1989 Pichon-Baron repeats its performance from the vertical tasting in May 2018. It storms from the glass, bearing copious blackberry, cedar and perhaps a little more mint than I noticed on the previous bottle. There is so much youthful zeal to this harmonious, refined Pauillac that you would barely guess it is 30 years old. Long and tender with a graphite-infused finish, this bottle might be even better than the ex-château example. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (95WS, 92JG, 92RP, 91VN). Wine Spectator: "Huge wine. Dark ruby-colored. Intense aromas of ripe fruit and game. Full-bodied and compacted, with masses of tannins and fruit, yet still closed and not giving much on the palate. Give this brute time. Best Cantemerle ever? (JS)" (05/1999)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Château Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What a remarkable performance! I must admit that I purchased more of the 1985 and 1987, somehow neglecting to secure much of the 1986. Do I feel stupid? As I have written so many times in the past, every time I do a vertical tasting of Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignons, they taste better than my initial laudatory notes suggested. This great wine exhibits a black/purple color, a fabulous, sweet, pure, cassis-scented nose, massive body and richness, and total harmony among its components - fruit, wood, alcohol, acidity, and tannin. Still exceptionally youthful and vigorous, with no signs of age in either its color or taste, this 1986 could easily pass for a 3-4 year old California Cabernet. (RP)" (08/1996)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1978 Ridge Vineyards "York Creek" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90JG). John Gilman: "The 1978 Ridge York Creek Cabernet Sauvignon is a good, solid example of the vintage, with plenty of depth and stuffing, but just a touch of brett that keeps its score down a bit. The bouquet is a black fruity blend of cassis, dark berries, saddle leather, cigar ash, stony minerality and a topnote of dried eucalyptus. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and now nicely resolved on the attack, with a good core, fine soil signature and a long, well-balanced and gently chewy finish. There is a sturdiness to the structure of this wine that seems likely to always be part of its equation, but the wine is very nicely balanced, complex and drinks very well at the present time. This most recent bottle at our October tasting showed even better than one I had and wrote up four years ago. " (01/2017)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Inglenook "Rubicon" Rutherford Bordeaux Blend (95JS, 95RP, 95W&S, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon, which used to be a proprietary blend and had a somewhat rustic, Italian personality, has now been put under the Inglenook Vineyard designation. Where the Cabernet Sauvignon was a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot, the Rubicon has abandoned any Italian varietals in favor of a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot. I think it’s safe to say this is potentially the best Rubicon made to date. It’s not to denigrate other vintages, but there is a finesse and elegance combined with great richness and an avoidance of any rusticity that plagued some of the other vintages -- which is to be admired. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1979 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very smooth entry on the medium-bodied palate, good acidity with upfront notes of black olives, burnt toast, bitter cherry and chestnuts. Surprisingly good grip and persistency: this is certainly one of the better 1979 Bordeaux to come my way, though some might find the finish too herbaceous and raw. Commendable. (NM)" (12/2006)
Starting Bid: $975.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Darioush "Darius II" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II sparks both hedonistic and cerebral appreciation by exuding profound scents of preserved plums, blackberry compote, blueberry pie, kirsch and warm cassis with suggestions of candied violets, cigar box, Indian spices, fragrant earth, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, bold and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate delivers rich black fruit and spicy layers with a firm yet velvety frame and an epically long, earth-laced finish. (LPB)" (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2000 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (97RP, 96WS, 95JD, 95JS, 95WE, 94VN, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beginning to open magnificently, the still dense purple-colored 2000 reveals a blossoming bouquet of blackberries, cassis, graphite and pen ink. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that have resolved themselves beautifully over the last eleven years, this wine is still an adolescent, but it exhibits admirable purity, texture, mouthfeel and power combined with elegance. (RP)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2002 Lagrange, St-Julien (92WS, 90RP, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Pretty aromas of blackberries and currants, with hints of lead pencil. Full-bodied, yet very balanced, with a solid core of fruit and ultrafine tannins. Really well-crafted wine. Lagrange often excels in less than easy vintages, like 2002. Excellent. *Smart Buys and Top 100 Wines of 2005* (JS)" (03/2005)
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (98DC, 97RP, 97VN, 96JS, 95ST). Decanter: "As with the last time I drank this wine two years ago, it is still full of life and energy, with that classic Lafite quality of effortless drinkability. Utterly moreish, it has an amazing cinnamon-edged spice, rich and slightly exotic with brick-red colouring. To recap what we all know to have been a great season, 1982 saw a dry and mild spring, allowing an excellent flowering followed by a dry and hot summer with regular small showers and fresher nights in August. It was an easy harvest that saw an early and large crop, and in the vat rooms they say, it smelt of hot fruit jam. Baron Eric's memories say it all: 'The last day of harvest was a Friday and we knew right away how good the fruit in the tanks was. Everyone was in a great mood, the whole harvest felt like fun.' (JA)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $2,060.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Tor Kenward "Rock" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ((92-94RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The superb 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a dark ruby/purple hue as well as graphite, blueberry, and cassis characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, with luscious fruit, fine opulence, sweetness, flamboyance, and a front-end loaded character, it will evolve for 10-15 years. (RP)" (12/2006)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (97JD, 97JG, 97RP, 93JS, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'The harvest lasted 16 days from the 16th September, ' proprietor Bruno Borie mentioned about the 1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou. Medium brick colored, it comes galloping out of the glass with bold, expressive notes of Black Forest cake, preserved plums and mincemeat pie with hints of cigar box, star anise, eucalyptus and espresso plus wafts of roasted nuts and iron ore. Medium to full-bodied, generous and opulent, the palate has beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and tons of youthful fruit, finishing with epically long-lasting layers of preserved black fruits and exotic spices. (LPB)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $295.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1988 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (92WS, 91VN). Wine Spectator: "Beautiful aromas of fresh herbs, such as tarragon and mint, with berry and cherry undertones. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins that are polished and very pretty. Caressing finish. (JS, Web-2009)"
Starting Bid: $435.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Reignac, Bordeaux Supérieur (93RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large 200-acre vineyard, this blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a high plateau near the village of Saint-Loubès. A consistently over-achieving wine that is far superior to its humble appellation (Bordeaux Supérieur), the 2005 may be one of the all-time great Reignacs. Inky purple, almost black to the rim, the wine looks like a two-year-old rather than one that’s already hit a decade. Proprietors Yves and Stephanie Vatelot have turned out a superlative effort in this vintage that is cru classé quality. Dense crème de cassis, some graphite, spice box and cedar wood are all present in this full-bodied, super-concentrated, and remarkably impressive Reignac that has terrific purity, texture and length. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Prieuré-Lichine, Margaux. Wine Spectator: "Rich and delicious. Dark ruby-garnet color, with an amber rim. Loads of crushed berry character, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied and very chewy, with masses of fruit and a long, long finish. (JS)" (11/1998)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93WS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "1995 was a warmer vintage of lower yields from poor fruit set. The result is a relatively generous Georges de Latour Private reserve with lower acidity and a rich, opulent fruit profile. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 22 months in 100% new oak (55% French and 45% American), the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour has a medium to deep brick color with expressive dried blackberries, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis notes plus hints of cigar box, bouquet garni and coffee beans. Full-bodied (the alcohol is 13.9%), concentrated, firm and grainy, the palate delivers loads of relatively youthful fruit, with seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy. (LPB)" (05/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1989 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100RP, 100VN, 97DC, 97JG, 96WS). Vinous: "The 1989 La Mission Haut-Brion has arguably lain in the shadow of the lionized 1989 Haut-Brion for a number of years, so let me put this out there: The 1989 La Mission has improved over the last decade and is now equal to Haut-Brion; at its best, it may ultimately even surpass it. This note comes from a bottle compared directly with Haut-Brion, and it easily holds its own. The heavenly, live-wire bouquet displays more minerality and tension than the Haut-Brion, offering black olive and crushed stone – penetrating and thrilling. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $850.00
