Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 96RP, 96VN, 94ST, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Sporting a vibrant ruby, semi-opaque color, the 2010 Saxum James Berry Vineyard is the most tight, backwards version of this cuvee that I can recall. A blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Mourvedre, and 22% Syrah, it has a decidedly savory bouquet of blackberry liqueur, kirsch, violets, bouquet garni, ground pepper, and graphite. Full-bodied and layered on the palate, with brilliant mid-palate concentration, superb freshness, and masses of tannin, this brilliant Rhône blend from Paso Robles will stand toe to toe with the best wines out there, but it is not for those seeking instant gratification and will require 4-5 years of bottle age. In 2010, the Grenache component was aged in a combination of concrete tank and oak puncheons, and this change shows in both the aromatics and texture, with less obvious sweetness and more freshness."

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Realm "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97JD, 97JS, 97RP, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'We had half the fruit in at To Kalon when the fires hit in 2017, ' winemaker Benoit Touquette informed me. 'That's all we used.' Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard prances out of the glass with classically opulent scents of crème de cassis, baked plums, Morello cherries and mulberries plus nuances of rose oil, spice cake, bouquet garni and dusty soil. Full-bodied, the palate is decadently showy with loads of exotic spice and floral accents lifting the rich, black fruit preserves flavors. It has a well-judged, solid frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long and wonderfully earthy. (LPB) 97+" (10/2020)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 EnRoute "Les Pommiers" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (94WE, 92WS). Wine Enthusiast: "Lush and velvety, this is a robust wine, richly layered in baked strawberry and huckleberry flavors. The palate is seasoned in tones of clove, cinnamon and orange, with a vibrant backbone of acidity and taut tannins that keeps it fresh in feel within a powerful context of ripeness. (VB)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $105.00

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: $1,005.00

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: $400.00

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: $100.00

Bid on this magnum of 2002 Aubert "Quarry Vineyard" Sonoma County Chardonnay (1.5L) (94ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale green-tinged gold color. Nose dominated by candied lime peel. Highly concentrated flavors of crystallized yellow plum, apple and pear, lifted by a piquant note of orange peel. Super ripe, chewy and deep. A powerful, high-alcohol (15.3%) California Chardonnay that seemed to grow purer and brighter as it unfolded in the glass. Very long and strong on the aftertaste. (ST)" (05/2004)
Starting Bid: $150.00

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 magnum of 1995 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot (1.5L) (94RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I do not believe it is an exaggeration to say that Pahlmeyer's Merlot is now the finest being produced in California. One might quibble over other styles of Merlot, but no producer achieves more complexity, flavor, and thrills per sip than Pahlmeyer. The 1995 Merlot is an awesomely-endowed, full-bodied, pedal to the metal style of Merlot with great richness in addition to a knock-out nose of blackberry, raspberry, mocha, and smoky aromas that soar from the glass. The wine has a sweet attack (from its formidable glycerin and extract level, not sugar), full body, extraordinary layers of concentrated fruit, and a blockbuster finish. Amazingly, the wine, like its 1996 counterpart, possesses gorgeously integrated acidity, tannin, and alcohol. Can California Merlot get any better than this? This wine will drink well when released, and last for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/1997)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L) (98RP, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensationally pure and seamless 2014 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red (42% Grenache, 24% Mourvèdre, 21% Syrah, 8% Counoise and 5% Roussanne) was brought up in a mix of barrels and foudre, followed by six months in concrete tanks. The wine offers incredibly rich and layered notes of black raspberries, creme de cassis, crushed flowers, melted licorice and peppery herbs in its full-bodied, impeccably balanced profile. Showing the more upfront, hedonistic style of the vintage, this full-bodied beauty still has ample underlying tannin, beautiful mid-palate depth and a killer finish that keeps you coming back for more. (JD)" (09/2016)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2013 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 95VN, 93DC) and 1-bottle of 2013 Outpost Howell Mountain Zinfandel (90RP, 90VN). Of the 2013 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Vinous writes: "Deep, inky and powerful, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a classic wine endowed with tons of regional character and personality to burn. The inclusion of all seven Bordeaux varieties in the blend adds layers of nuance and complexity. Hints of game, smoke, licorice and dark spices add nuance to a somber, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon that is going to need at least a few years to fully open up. (AG) 95+" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $110.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (95WS, 93JS, 91ST, 90CG). Wine Spectator: "Ripe and deeply flavored, concentrated and well-structured, this full-bodied red offers a complex mix of black cherry, wild berry and raspberry fruit that's pure and persistent, ending with a pebbly note and firm tannins. *Wine of the Year, Top 100 Wines of 2011* (JL)" (08/2011)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97JD, 97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard, which comes primarily from the Calera clone (although I suspect there are a few mystery clones in their plantings), always seems to remind me of a grand cru from Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits, particularly Morey-St.-Denis. Dense ruby/plum, its sweet nose of strawberries, black cherry liqueur, fresh porcini mushrooms and forest floor is followed by a dark, full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine that is supple, dramatic, and even flamboyant. (RP)" (03/2016)
Starting Bid: $760.00

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 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 1994 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99RP, 97ST, 95DC, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Christian Moueix and his talented winemaking team continue to rewrite the definition of a Napa Valley reference point wine. I have had a difficult time keeping the corks in my bottles of 1994 Dominus. Eight-thousand cases were produced from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. In this vintage, 174 days passed between bud break and the harvest, a remarkable period of time for any wine region in the world. The 1994 is a strikingly thick, compellingly rich wine with the texture of a great Pomerol, despite being made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon. (RP)" (12/1997)
Starting Bid: $975.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Sine Qua Non "Ziehharmonika" California Syrah ((98-100RP), (96-99JD), (96-98VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet-purple colored, the nose kicks off with bright, vivacious scents of freshly cracked black pepper, licorice, baker’s chocolate and menthol before opening out to a core just singing of Black Forest cake, wild blueberries and ripe blackberries with wafts of smoky bacon and garrigue. Full-bodied, firm and beautifully textured with perfectly ripe, velvety tannins, it has invigorating freshness and a very long, multi-layered finish. Its rock-solid structure and intensity suggest this wine will be very long lived indeed. (LPB)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $725.00

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 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 3-bottle lot of 2018 Aubert "Powder House" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay ((96-99RP), 97JD, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second vintage of this wine, the 2018 Chardonnay Powder House comes from eight acres of what are now estate-owned vines planted in 2013, to Hyde Old Wente and Mt. Eden clones on Goldridge soils. The vineyard is located in downtown Forestville, right across from the high school. The nose bursts from the glass with notes of lemon meringue pie, lime curd, tangerine peel and candied ginger plus touches of lightly browned toast, cashews and a waft of cedar. The full-bodied palate starts out gentle and floral, expanding into a citrus explosion on the finish, featuring a wicked backbone of freshness and loads of compelling savory sparks that will keep you coming back for more. (LPB)" (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $315.00

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Hundred Acre "Kayli Morgan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 93ST, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Kayli Morgan Vineyard opens with wonderfully earthy, savory notes of truffles, black olives, charcuterie and fertile loam with a core of blackberry preserves, mincemeat pie and blueberry compote with hints of Indian spices, cardamom and scorched earth. The full-bodied palate is completely jam-packed with black fruit preserves and spicy nuances, with a very long, savory finish. (LPB)" (12/2018)
Starting Bid: $346.00

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 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: $125.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 98JD, 97JS, 96VN, 96WE, 95DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is very deep garnet-black in color and gives a truly profound nose of chargrill, pencil lead, crushed rocks and tar with a core of crème de cassis, licorice, dark chocolate and mincemeat pie with wafts of cardamom and cumin seed. The powerful, full-bodied palate gives a firm, ripe structure to match the incredible concentration of fruit, finishing long and earthy. (LPB)" (10/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 2012 Aubert "Ritchie Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (1.5L) ((91-93RP), 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from the Calera clone, the 2012 Pinot Noir Ritchie Vineyard offers up plenty of cola and root beer notes intermixed with black cherry, dusty, loamy soil and foresty nuances. (RP)" (12/2013)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot in original wood; including 3-bottles of 2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not an Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (96RP, 95ST, 94VN, 93WS) and 3-bottles of 2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not An Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (97RP, 95ST, 95WS, 94VN). Of the 2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not An Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "An extended barrel-aged release, the 2009 Syrah This Is Not An Exit is 100% from the Santa Rita Hills Eleven Confessions Vineyard and checks in as a blend of 80% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 7% Roussanne and 1% Viognier that saw 41.5 months in 65% new French oak. Slightly exotic, with notions of kirsch, flower oil, smoked meats, licorice and graphite, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, loads of fruit and a blockbuster finish. (JD)" (08/2013)
Starting Bid: $1,470.00

Bid on this magnum of 2018 Carter "The G.T.O. - Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (OWC - 98JD, 98RP) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Available in magnums only, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon The GTO needs a little coaxing to reveal slowly unfurling notes of blackcurrant preserves, blackberry pie, fruitcake and molten licorice with suggestions of chocolate-covered cherries, wild sage, cedar chest and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is seductively generous, featuring bold black fruit preserves and a firm, grainy foundation with an underpinning of soft, beautifully balanced acidity, finishing on a long-lingering exotic spice note. (LPB)" (11/2020)
Starting Bid: $600.00

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: $160.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Kongsgaard Napa Valley Chardonnay (96RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay slips sensuously out of the glass with beguiling notions of crème brulee, orange blossoms and lemon curd over a core of apricot tart and pineapple upside down cake plus a waft of marzipan. The full-bodied palate is stacked with exotic fruit and citrus layers, structured by a satiny texture and bold freshness, finishing very, very long. Wow! (LPB) 96+" (11/2019)
Starting Bid: $260.00

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 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 3-bottle lot of 2010 Sine Qua Non "The Monkey" White Rhône Blend (95JD, 94VN, 92RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Manfred Krankl’s 2010 The Monkey, which is tight and reserved right out of the gate (don’t be afraid to give Manfred’s whites plenty of air, they need it) opens up beautifully and has a classic Rhône-like bouquet of buttered citrus, tangerines, honeyed minerality, and exotic floral notes. Decadent, powerful and concentrated on the palate, it will easily stand up to the top white Hermitage bottlings out there." (08/2018)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1997 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96DC, 95RP, 93VN). Decanter: "At the peak of its powers, the 1997 Howell Mountain is bursting with black fruit, graphite, wood smoke and hints of tar and truffle. On the palate the wine is rich, plush and generous but well balanced, with great length and depth. A certain suppleness nods to the vintage's warmth, but that's by no means unwelcome in this typically firm-framed cuvée. (WK)"
Starting Bid: $460.00

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 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: $220.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2018 Peter Michael "La Carrière" Knights Valley Chardonnay (98JS, 97RP). James Suckling: "Aromas of honeysuckle, lemon curd, dried pineapple, matchstick and toasted hazelnut. It’s medium-to full-bodied with crisp acidity and seamless layers of fruit and flint. Great energy and intensity here. " (01/2021)
Starting Bid: $411.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2018 Rhys "Porcupine Hill" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (96VN, 94JD, 94JG) and 1-bottle of 2018 Rhys "Swan Terrace Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (96VN, 95JG, 94BH). Of the 2018 Rhys "Porcupine Hill" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, Vinous writes: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Porcupine Hill emerges from a block of densely planted vines that lies apart from the rest of the property, on its own ridge. Weightless and ethereal, the 2018 stands out for its aromatic presence and finely sculpted, detailed profile. Interestingly, the fruit is much less overt here than it is in the Bearwallow. There is something elusive in the Porcupine Hill’s ethereal personality that is absolutely compelling. (AG)" (09/2020)
Starting Bid: $130.00

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)
Starting Bid: $400.00

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: $935.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Stock" Central Coast Syrah (98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up from the Grenache, the blockbuster-styled 2012 Syrah Stock checks in as a blend of 84% Syrah, 7% Grenache, 6% Petit Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Mourvedre, that was fermented with 32% whole clusters and aged in just over half new French oak. It offers stunning notes of blackcurrants, cassis, smoked meats, ground pepper and wild herbs to go with a full-bodied, unctuous, layered, yet always graceful and elegant feel on the palate. Nicely structured, with perfect overall balance, it still has the open-knit character of the vintage, yet has plenty of underlying structure, which at the moment is slightly hidden by the wine's lavish fruit. It will be better in 2-3 years, and have two decades of overall longevity. Drink through 2032. (JD)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $835.00

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 magnum of 2014 Saxum "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Red Blend (1.5L) (98JD, 95VN, 95WS, 94RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as a final blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 22% Zinfandel, 13% Syrah, 13% Tempranillo and the balance Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2014 Paderewski Vineyard is as voluptuous and decadent as it gets. Plum sauce, exotic spices, white pepper, candy corn and spring flowers, it hits the palate with a broad, expansive, sexy style, ripe tannin, no weight and a blockbuster finish. It’s so well balanced and seamless, it can come across as a touch easy, yet it has terrific complexity, good mid-palate density and a great, great finish. This is what great wine is all about. Drink it anytime over the coming decade. " (08/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 DuMoL "Finn" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (94VN, 93RP, 90WS). Vinous: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Finn is soft, seductive and polished. Here it is the wine's sensuality and racy, perfumed personality that stands out most. This is one of the most forward, fruit-driven Pinots. At the same time the Finn is beautifully layered, supple and perfumed throughout. Bright floral and red-toned tones add considerable lift on the finish. (AG)" (02/2014)

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)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2018 Ernest "The Settler - Cleary Ranch Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (91RP, 91VN). Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir The Settler Cleary Ranch Vineyard comes across as quite closed today. There is good depth, and the stems have integrated, but at the same time, the fruit is not too expressive. It will be interesting to see where this goes. Hints of dried cherry, cedar, tobacco, mint and sage add lovely aromatic intensity to this savory, earthy Pinot. (AG)" (01/2021)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2018 Williams Selyem "Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (95CG, 95RP, 91BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Lewis MacGregor Estate Vineyard, from Pommard and Swan clone vines planted in 1990, has a medium ruby-purple color and broody scents of spiced cranberry sauce, baked blackberries, prosciutto, bergamot and saline. The palate is medium-bodied with slowly expanding fruits accented by loads of inherent spiciness and a mineral streak. It has a grainy frame and great freshness, finishing very long. Lovely!

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)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98JD, 98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, blocks B1, B2 and E2 planted to clone 337, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS has a very deep purple-black color and is a little reticent to begin, offering glimpses at crushed black berries, black cherries and black currants with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, dark chocolate and dusty earth with a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied and tautly structured with rock-solid, firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the muscular fruit, it finishes on a lingering earthy note. Forget this one over the next 4-5 years, and drink it over the next 25+. (LPB) 98+" (12/2017)

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..
