Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Claret (96JD, 95RP, 92VN, 92WE, 92WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "There are just over 500 cases of the 2016 Reserve Claret, a more Merlot-dominated blend that includes 31% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. It's similarly hued to the Reserve Cabernet and has a terrific perfume of blackcurrants, black cherries, ground herbs, and black tea as well as a whiff of dark chocolate and new saddle leather. This beauty offers a stunning array of full-bodied richness and depth, building yet ripe tannins, notable purity, and a sense of power without heaviness. It is a fabulously complex Bordeaux blend from Napa/Sonoma that will continue drinking beautifully for another 20 years. " (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Joseph Phelps "Backus" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (96JD, 96RP, 95JS, (92-95VN), 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard is composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. It was aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a little coaxing before it charges out of the glass with bold expressions of crème de cassis, boysenberries and black cherry preserves plus suggestions of cast-iron pan, violets, allspice and sandalwood with a touch of fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is absolutely packed with muscular black fruit preserves flavors, beautifully supported by finely grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing with loads of mineral and spice fireworks. (LPB) 96+" (10/2020)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (94DC, 94WS, 93RP, 93VN, 92W&S, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby in color, showing aromas of currant, new oak and fresh herbs, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with very chewy tannins and an outstanding concentration of fruit. Needs plenty of bottle age. *Collectibles* (JS)" (10/2008)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2012 Stags' Leap Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93JS, 90WE) and 1-bottle of 2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JD, (92-95RP), 94JS, (91-94VN), 93DC, 93WE). Of the 2014 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2014s are not yet in bottle. As for the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Estate-Grown, this has a similar saturated purple color, terrific presence on the palate, great ripeness, loads of minerality, floral notes and beautifully pure blackcurrant liqueur intermixed with licorice and spice. It is full-bodied and rich with well-integrated tannin and wood. This is another 20- to 25-year wine, but should drink well after its release. (RP)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2017 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 1-bottle of 2017 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Starting Bid: $150.50

Bid on this bottle of 1983 Latour, Pauillac (95JG, 94WS, 90JS, 90VN). John Gilman: "The 1983 Château Latour has never had a great reputation, and I probably had not tasted the wine since close to its release back in the mid-1980s. I was very surprised to see just how stunning the wine has turned out to be, given that Robert Parker only gave it 87 points back in the day. However, this particular magnum was absolutely stellar, offering up a deep, complex and classic nose of cassis, black cherries, dark gravelly soil tones, tobacco leaf, cedar and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with fine structure and grip, excellent gravelly undertow, still moderate tannins and a long, complex and perfectly balanced and classic Latour finish. This is a very, very underrated vintage of Latour." (09/2020)
Starting Bid: $343.00

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97WS, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "A brilliant effort. Deliciously rich and complex, with gobs of concentrated black cherry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors focused in on a tight beam. Intense and concentrated, it exhibits a supple, polished texture, gaining complexity and nuance on a long, detailed finish. *Collectibles* (JL)" (11/2002)
Starting Bid: $2,850.00

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (94WS, 91JD). Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous aromas of black licorice, currant and blackberry. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very tight, yet with air it comes around wonderfully. Give it time. This was always one of the buys of the vintage. (JS, Web—2007)"
Starting Bid: $72.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (97VN, 96RP, 95DC, 95ST, 94JG). Vinous: "What a treat it is to taste these two Pichon Lalandes straight from the chateau’s cellar. The 1996 Pichon Lalande is stratospheric from the very first taste. The deep, layered bouquet alone is deeply transfixing. Smoke, mocha, dark spices, lavender, crème de cassis, a host of dark-fleshed fruits and a touch of warm, resonant sweetness from the French oak draw me in. All of those sensations follow through to the palate, where the wine is massive, intense and totally enveloping. Time has softened the tannins to the point the 1996 is ready to drink, but there is enough sheer concentration here to support another 20-30 years of exceptional drinking. (AG) 97+" (02/2016)
Starting Bid: $440.00

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 98RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Materium comes from the Weitz Vineyard in Oakville and is all Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in mostly new barrels. It's a very different wine than the Amoenus release and has more elegant, seamless aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, black raspberries, tobacco leaf, flowery incense, and sandalwood. Château Margaux-like in its elegance and complexity, this brilliant wine has loads of sweet fruit, flawless integration of its tannins and acidity, flawless balance, and just a heavenly overall profile that I wish every reader could taste. This extraordinary effort can be drunk today or cellared for 30 years or more." (01/2021)
Starting Bid: $230.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1997 Dalla Valle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon (2, 800 cases from a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc) boasts an opaque purple color as well as a gorgeous nose of mineral-infused black currants, and spicy oak. Full-bodied, structured, muscular, and multi-dimensional, it is approachable, but best cellared for 2-4 years, and drunk over the following 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2000)
Starting Bid: $315.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Winemaker Camille Benitah and consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs have done a fabulous job with the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, deep and sumptuous, the 2010 is incredibly inviting. Sweet dark cherries, mocha, flowers and espresso meld together as the 2010 opens up in the glass. A soft, plush finish rounds things out in style. The Merus Cabernet Sauvignon is overt, juicy and beautifully balanced from start to finish. One of the virtues of the 2010 is that it should drink fabulously pretty much upon release. The blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. (AG)" (12/2012)
Starting Bid: $92.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100JD, 100RP, 95JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, the singular, absolutely compelling 2015 The Absurd opens with a seriously intense black currant cordial and plum preserves core, slowly revealing cedar chest, mincemeat pie, potpourri and spice box hints plus a waft of chocolate-covered cherries. The full-bodied, concentrated palate is packed with opulent black fruits and baking spice layers, featuring a rock-solid backbone of tight-grained tannins and just enough freshness to lift and tantalize on the long, seductive finish. Only 250 cases were made. (LPB)" (10/2017)
Starting Bid: $1,350.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Antinori "Solaia" Toscana (97WS, 94VN). Wine Spectator: "This offers gorgeous aromas of blackberry, mineral and flowers follow through to a full body, with superfine tannins and a long, long finish. A complex and wonderfully structured red. Long and beautiful. *Collectibles* (JS)" (10/2008)
Starting Bid: $595.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1973 Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93JG, 93VN, 92RP). Vinous: "In any other setting, the 1973 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon would have probably shown better, but the table was full of great bottles, including the iconic 1969. On this night , the 1973 shows good balance, but it also comes across as a bit mature and dried out. (AG)" (06/2013)
Starting Bid: $645.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100RP, 96CG, 96WS, 93W&S, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 boasts an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, violets, blackberries, creme de cassis and hints of charcoal and barbecue in addition to a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel that builds incrementally with great purity, staggering fruit concentration, and a long, velvety, 50+-second finish. This prodigious effort should continue to drink well for 20+ years. (RP)" (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $750.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Carte Blanche Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ((91-93RP), 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering more generous amounts of blacker fruits, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a deeper, richer mouthfeel as well as more stuffing. It should keep for a decade or more. (RP)" (12/2013)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque ruby/purple hue followed by pure, unevolved, black currant, raspberry, crushed rock, and spring flower-like notes. Very primary, it tastes more like a barrel sample than a finished wine, but it possesses enormous potential because of its combination of elegance, structure, and intensity. (RP) 93+" (12/2007)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (99JD, 97DC, 97RP, 97WE, 96VN, 95JS, 95ST, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Borderline perfection in a bottle, the 2010 Pichon-Longueville Baron (79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot) boasts a saturated purple color as well as truly extraordinary aromatics of crème de cassis, licorice, crushed rock-like minerality, graphite, and spring flowers. Possessing full-bodied richness, a huge, unctuous mid-palate, and building tannin, it shows the purity, grandeur, and precision that makes this vintage so remarkable. Hide bottles for another 4-5 years, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 2-3 decades. 99+" (02/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect 2002 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and the rest dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. This exotic, full-throttle, nearly over-the-top red wine’s intensity, richness and smoky coffee notes intermixed with notions of chocolate, graphite, and jammy blackberry and black currant fruit ooze from the glass. This rich, concentrated beauty tastes more like a top-notch, young Right Bank Bordeaux from a vintage such as 2009 than a wine dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. With stunning purity and awesome potential, it can be drunk now or cellared for another two decades. (RP)" (06/2012)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1995 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine of great intensity and richness, it displays classic notes of licorice, barbecue smoke, creme de cassis, cedarwood and forest floor. Full-bodied with sensational purity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and a long, voluptuous finish with no hard edges, it has only reached mid-adolescence, and has at least two decades of life ahead of it. (RP)" (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $447.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (97WE, 96JS, 96VN, 96WS, 94ST, 92RP). Wine Enthusiast: "Power and elegance merge effortlessly in this superb wine. Its pure black currant fruit is tightly coiled, supported by just the right amount of firm tannins. Great aging potential. A triumph. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (06/2008)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2000 Chasse-Spleen, Moulis (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is reticent on the nose at first, but opens up nicely with time, blackberry, plum, black coffee, cedar and a slight estuarine note. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins on the entry, firm backbone and good depth. Stern and masculine, a saline note towards the cedar and tobacco scented, sappy finish. This is a great showing for Chasse Spleen and comes recommended for the vintage. (NM)" (09/2010)
Starting Bid: $256.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2012 Le Ragose Cabernet Sauvignon Veronese. The Cabernet Sauvignon from Le Ragose is a special bottling sourced from the clay and limestone soil of their estate in Veneto. The vineyard isn't much more than an acre and a half and is planted to 100% Cabernet Sauvignon vines dating back to 1987.
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Madrona Ranch possesses an opaque blue/purple color as well as an extraordinary, enveloping, massive aromatic profile consisting of spring flowers, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, raspberries and blackberry liqueur. In the mouth, there is sensational texture, full-bodied intensity, and terrific freshness, precision and vibrancy, despite what is undeniably a massive, rich, intense wine that should age well for another 25-35 years. The 2001s were about as profound as I have ever tasted from Abreu, but the 2002s may be even sexier since they are slightly more evolved. (RP)" (06/2012)
Starting Bid: $400.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 98JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 400 cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, which is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. This comes from the backstreets of St. Helena and the site basically looks like a quarry with its extreme gravelly soils. The wine is made from clone 337, which may be my favorite of the Cabernet clones. As I have said before, this is a Mission Haut-Brion on steroids – an incredibly fabulous wine with notes of scorched earth, charcoal embers, blackberry and blueberry fruit, an almost endless mouthfeel with powerful fruit, but elegance as well as purity. A thoroughly flawless and seamless full-bodied wine with 30 years of upside, this is pure perfection. If you have the patience, try to hold off for a couple of years, as this is one of the more structured of the 2014s. (RP)" (12/2016)
Starting Bid: $675.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This small estate on Howell Mountain remains one of California's finest producers of world-class, complex red wine. The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon-Howell Mountain is typically backward, tannic, full-bodied, and concentrated, but 6-7 years away from accessible drinkability. The color is opaque garnet/purple, and the nose is tight but promising, with scents of minerals, cassis, and spices. Rich and concentrated, as well as ferociously tannic (the tannin is ripe rather than astringent), this promising wine should reach its apogee by the turn of the century and last 20 or more years. (RP)" (10/1993)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this bottle of 1987 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (91JG). John Gilman: "This was the last vintage to be made by the Baron de Rothschild, and I have always had a sneaky suspicion that the 1987 may have been made a bit more memorable by the inclusion of some of the 1986 or 1988 bookends that may have been laying around, as the wine utterly transcends the vintage in terms of depth and power. Regardless of how the quality of the wine was ultimately arrived at, it is the finest 1987 Medoc that I have ever tasted, jumping from the glass in a blend of red berries, spices, coffee, eucalyptus, a touch of walnuts and the traditional Mouton nicely toasted new oak. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and à point, with excellent focus and fine length on the shapely finish. This is a lovely, commemorative bottling that still has plenty of life ahead of it." (11/2003)
Starting Bid: $320.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark, inky color and concentrated flavors resulted from the shy yields. The 1998 Corison shows flavors of cherry, berry and plum fruit with hints of dried rose petal and violet. The wine is elegant in the mouth with a long and firm structure.
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100JG, 100JS, 100RP, 100VN). Vinous: "The 1989 Haut-Brion remains one of the outstanding achievements of the decade, and it consistently flirts with perfection. I was fortunate to taste the wine three times over the space of six months, though this tasting note comes from a bottle poured at the château by Jean-Philippe Delmas – the first time I had ever tasted an ex-château bottle. It is a fabulous wine. Showing little maturity in terms of bricking, it has a fabulous bouquet of graphite, clove and tobacco aromas that burst from the glass, perhaps with a little more amplitude than others I have tasted. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $1,665.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2000 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A delicious, complex effort, the fully mature 2000 Lanessan offers notes of cedarwood, plums, loamy soil, and damp earth, medium to full body, plenty of spice, and a classic Bordeaux personality. (RP)" (06/2010)
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 80% new French oak) shows not a trace of oak and has wonderfully sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit in the nose, along with some licorice, incense, and charcoal embers. The color is opaque to the rim, and the wine full-bodied, with the blue fruits dominating on the palate. It has a finish of a good 40-45 seconds. Tannins are moderate, but very sweet and well-integrated. It should drink well for 20 years or more. (RP)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $165.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1989 Palmer, Margaux (97VN, 95RP, 92JG, 92WS). Vinous: "The 1989 Palmer has vied with the 1983 as the highlight of the decade, so it is fascinating to revisit it at 30 years old. It has a wonderful bouquet of degraded red berry fruit, singed leather and hints of game and mint, beautifully defined and still so fresh, yet undeniably old-school in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and still brimming with vigor, delivering a fine bead of acidity and a touch of cracked black pepper. A very detailed, engaging finish urges you back for another sip. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $700.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (97JS, 95WS, 94RP, 91DC, 91VN). James Suckling: "Some very rich and ripe red and dark berries here make for an impressive, engaging nose that has charming violet undertones. The palate is velvety and supple, while super smooth tannins deliver a long and plush, plum-soaked finish. Great wine and already drinking well. " (02/2018)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2018 Beringer "Q" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. Antonio Galloni writes: "This extensive range from Beringer is full of highlights, with one or two wines that might have been more convincing. A bevy of single-vineyard Cabernets form the core of the range, and it is precisely these wines that show another step in the search for greater freshness and energy that culminates in a fabulous edition of the flagship Private Reserve that avoids the heaviness of some recent vintages. My only real quibble is with the Knights Valley Cabernets, which seem to have become more fruity and less expressive of place. Overall, though, there is plenty to like in this lineup from Beringer and Chief Winemaker Mark Beringer."
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS). Wine Spectator: "This embraces the ripe, lush style head on, with creamed plum, cassis and blackberry preserve flavors gliding through, showing seamless structure and hefty dollops of mocha and ganache on the finish. For the hedonist crowd. (JM)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1974 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Stag's Leap Vineyard. According to Michael Broadbent: "Immensely impressive when first tasted in 1976 and in 1979, still opaque, perfectly balanced, great future. At the Wine Experience 10-year tasting, richly coloured, very pronounced though somewhat idiosyncratic character. More recently, two notes in New York, first a pre-tasting of Tawfiq Khoury's, sweet, distinctive, delicious, and later that evening at a BYOB at Chrisitie's. Last tasted Feb 1997. 4 Stars." (Michael Broadbent's Vintage Wine, pg 513)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this bottle 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: $105.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Hewitt "Double Plus" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular effort, probably the finest wine I have tasted to date from Hewitt Vineyard, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Double Plus is a classic of mid-Napa Valley. It boasts gorgeous notes of creme de cassis, flowers and spice box in a rich, but not over-done style. The wood influence is subtle, not intrusive, and this gorgeous, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon performed spectacularly in my tastings. (RP)" (10/2013)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2013 Tenuta di Biserno "Il Pino di Biserno" Toscana Rosso (94RP, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Il Pino di Biserno is a gorgeous wine with a force of energy and liveliness that is uncommon to see in a wine of this extract and sophistication. Dark fruit tones of blackberry, plum and dried cherry are immediately followed by spice, leather and tobacco. The effect is soothing, intense and compelling. This is a beautiful wine from a classic vintage, but the tannins are definitely on the young side. (ML)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Hundred Acre "Kayli Morgan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 95VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard has a deep garnet color. Liquid licorice and molten chocolate leap from the glass with a core of baked plums, chocolate-covered cherries, cumin seed, Sichuan pepper, smoked meats and blackcurrant cordial with a waft of violets. Full-bodied and laden with perfumed fruits, the palate has gorgeous freshness and loads of mineral accents, finishing very long and layered. (LPB)" (12/2018)
Starting Bid: $435.00

Bid on this bottle of 1968 Heitz "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96JG). John Gilman: "The 1968 vintage was the first truly legendary Martha’s Vineyard bottling and its reputation has been stellar since the wine was first released in 1973. At age forty-three, the wine remains absolutely at its zenith and is drinking stunningly well. The bouquet is deep, wide open and brilliant, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of red and black cherries, a touch of chocolate, a beautiful signature note of fresh mint, woodsmoke, Rutherford dust, a touch of petroleum jelly, red curry and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very pure and absolutely à point, with a sappy core of fruit, a beautiful base of soil, great focus, bright, tangy acids and flawless balance on the very, very long and utterly seamless finish. This is a legendary vintage of Martha’s Vineyard that remains at its absolute apogee." (06/2011)
Starting Bid: $1,450.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1994 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars was founded in the early 1970s by the Winiarski family on land that would eventually become part of the Stags Leap AVA in Napa Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend had its first vintage in 1972, and rose to rapid fame in 1976 when it beat out the likes of Mouton-Rothschild and Haut-Brion at the "Judgement of Paris" blind tasting that is widely credited with putting California's wine industry on the map. The Fay vineyard was established by Nathan Fay in 1961. This historic vineyard's soils, a combination of rich, waterborne alluvial earth and volcanic rock, have yielded wines marked by voluptuous perfume and radiant berry flavors, with a personality markedly different from the wines of neighboring S.L.V..
Starting Bid: $320.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 98JS, 98WE, 97JD, 97VN, 96CG, 96DC, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is a little reticent to begin, needing a fair bit of coaxing to reveal beautifully beguiling notions of wild blueberries, warm blackberries, black currant cordial, cloves and cedar chest with nuances of camphor, yeast extract, charcuterie and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic elegance and depth, revealing loads of subtle floral, black fruit and earthy layers with a firm, very finely grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. (LPB)" (10/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Kapcsándy "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely riveting, and even better than I predicted last year is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and the rest tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot...in two weeks of tastings, this wine stood out as one of those singular efforts that it is impossible to get out of your mind and off of your palate. A flawless, seamless, profound example of Napa Cabernet, it exhibits an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of lead pencil shavings, cedar, creme de cassis, ink, flowers, and espresso roast. " (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $550.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Continuum Oakville Bordeaux Blend (100JS, 100VN, 99RP, 95WE). Vinous: "The 2016 Proprietary Red Wine Sage Mountain Vineyard may very well be the single greatest vintage made here thus far. It is quite simply a stunning wine and a towering achievement from the Mondavi family. Powerful, ample and sweeping in stature, the 2016 boasts breathtaking intensity in all of its dimensions. I see the pure, vibrant fruit of the 2013, but with more finessed tannins that add to the wine's feeling of real sensuality. Bright, precise and finely sculpted with remarkable persistence and perfectly integrated tannins, the 2016 is positively stellar - not to mention one of the wines of the vintage. (AG)" (01/2020)

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - CCS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 97DC, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is something ethereal about the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS, a wine that I tend to give more perfect scores to than of the other Schrader offerings. This is clone 4 from a special block of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, and it always seems to have these incredible, explosive aromatics ranging from blueberry to blackberry to cassis to spring flowers and lead pencil shavings. It’s always one of the more seductive wines early on, with sweet, velvety tannins, a plush, succulent mouthfeel, full-bodied splendor and majestic texture. This is a killer effort of great intensity and presence. (RP)" (10/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Latour, Pauillac (100WS, 98VN, 96JG, 94DC). Wine Spectator: "This is one of my favorite wines ever. Full-bodied, with layers of silky fruit and masses of currant, mineral and berry character. Amazing. It's a wine with perfect structure, perfect strength. It's 1961 Latour in modern clothes. It's hard not to drink it now. (JS)" (02/2005)

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.'

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien (99JS, 98W&S, 98WS, 97DC, 97RP, 97VN, (95-97WE), 95ST). James Suckling: "A stunningly complex and complete nose of flowers, dark fruits, and minerals. Very perfumed and subtle at the same time. The palate is full, yet tight and powerful with perfect tannins and a long, long finish." (06/2011)
