Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2014 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah (94DC, 93WE, 91VN, 90CG), 1-bottle of 2017 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah (94DC, 94WE, 93VN, 92RP), and 1-bottle of 2018 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah (94VN, 92WE, 91RP, 90JD). Of the 2014 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah, Decanter writes: "Stolpman’s Estate Syrah is a definitive example of the grape’s expression in Ballard Canyon: high-toned fruit, lifted floral notes, and a touch of savory earthiness. The 2014 is a component blend of every Syrah block from their property. It was fermented in concrete tank, aged for 18 months in 500L neutral puncheons, and consists of only free-run juice. The nose is understated and soft, with notes of red plums, charcoal dust and forest floor. The palate is soft and supple, with a well-integrated tannin structure that sneaks up on the back end of the finish. (ML)" (09/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Sine Qua Non "Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Central Coast Syrah (100JD, 98VN, 97RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Syrah Eleven Confessions Vineyard is the wine of the vintage, and Syrah simply doesn’t get any better. Even in these more difficult vintages, I’m always amazed at what this estate is able to achieve. Dense purple-hued, with an incredible bouquet of sandalwood, dried flowers, incense, saddle leather, and assorted red and blue fruits, it hits the palate with flawless balance, a deep, full-bodied, concentrated mouthfeel, and a heavenly finish. It shows a more up-front, exuberant, sexy style, yet there’s still ample underlying structure and depth. Reminding me of Guigal’s Côte Rôtie La Mouline (maybe amped up just slightly), drink it over the coming 15-20 years. " (08/2021)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Energetic redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complicated by cured meat, Asian spices and minerals. There's a Pinot-like delicacy and precision to this wine that's really intriguing. Clean and brisk, with sweet red fruit flavors and a seductive floral pastille quality. Finishes with impressive cut and persistence, leaving minerals and tangy berry skin notes behind. (JR)" (02/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98JD, 97WE, 96RP, 95ST, 92WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Absolutely spectacular and a thrill ride of a Syrah, the 2008 Cayuse Syrah Armada Vineyard is the most rich, decadent, and fruit driven of the single vineyard wines. Loaded with pure plum, aged prime beef, smoked herbs, lavender, and ground pepper aromas and flavors, this full-bodied Syrah is powerful and decadent on the palate, with a thrillingly seamless texture, brilliant concentration, and a blockbuster finish. Syrah doesn’t get much better and this should be given another handful of years in the cellar, and then consumed over the following 15+ years. " (06/2012)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Courbis "Les Eygats" Cornas (100JD, (95-97RP), (93-95VN), 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the inky colored (it's even deeper than the Sabarotte) 2015 Cornas Les Eygats comes from a cooler terroir located in the northern part of the appellation. Raised in equal parts new and used barrels, it offers an utterly profound bouquet of blackberries, blueberries, scorched earth, pepper and liquid flowers. Possessing sensational purity of fruit, integrated acidity, sweet tannin and perfect balance, it's another remarkably elegant yet powerful, heavenly Syrah from this estate that readers shouldn't miss. It's up with the finest Cornas ever made. Bravo!" (01/2018)

Of the 2016 Tensley "BMT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L), Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Slightly deeper colored, the 2016 Syrah BMT is another tour de force from Joey Tensley and is the usual blend of 75% Syrah (mostly from Rodney’s Vineyard) and 25% Grenache all from the Colson Canyon. Huge notes of crème de cassis, blackberries, scorched earth, and cracked pepper, full body, awesome purity, and no sensation of weight all make for a world class, utterly compelling Syrah to drink over the coming decade or more." (10/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (100RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still a youngster, the blockbuster 1995 Ermitage le Pavillon is a quintessential Hermitage in every way. Full-bodied, powerful, thick and unctuous, with tons of smoky, black, black fruits, tar, saddle leather and peppery herbs, this perfect wine is massively concentrated, rich and stacked, with masses of ripe tannin hiding under its still lively and fresh fruit. And while it’s a brilliant drink today, it’s still not yet fully mature. This tour de Force beauty will see its 50th birthday in fine form! (JD)" (09/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerhouse 2015 Saint Joseph les Granilites sacrifices none of its intricate crushed stone elements to the warmth of the vintage, it just adds layers of creamy, ripe blackberries over the top. This full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine should provide close to two decades of drinking pleasure. (JC)" (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah (95RP, 93WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted just after bottling, it, too, was performing spectacularly well. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by a classic bouquet of creme de cassis, blackberries, and touches of new oak, tar and sweet leather. It is a spectacular, dense, opulent, full-bodied effort with good minerality as well as structure. (RP)" (08/2004)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Joseph Phelps "Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (93JD, 91RP, 91VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah is a beauty! Ripe, forward and incredibly sexy, with awesome notes of black raspberries, blueberries, spiced meats and spring flowers, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, loads of sweet California fruit, and a light, elegant texture that keeps it lively and oh so drinkable."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Cayuse "En Chamberlin" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97RP, 96JS, 95JD, 94WS, 93VN, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Syrah en Chamberlin Vineyard is unmistakable on the nose, boasting an intensely framed Syrah that offers up generous and juicy dark fruit, framed by meaty, umami and savory expressions of olive tapenade, black pepper and charcuterie before drifting back to aromas of violets and lavender. Full-bodied and firmly structured, the wine is built like a tank, revealing layers of complexity and elegance that are supported by fine-grained tannins and rocky minerality across the mid-palate. With power and finesse, the wine somersaults in the mouth, before leading to a long, impressive conclusion that continues to develop in length. Only 365 cases were produced of this stellar wine. Yum!(AM)" (08/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Dark Blossom" California Syrah (99RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Syrah Dark Blossom showed even better from bottle than barrel. A blend of 84% Syrah, 8% Grenache, 4% Petite Sirah and the rest Roussanne and Petite Manseng, this beauty was fermented with 17% whole clusters and aged in equal parts new and used French oak. One of the shining successes in the vintage, it’s a full-bodied, concentrated and layered Syrah that has awesome aromatics of blackcurrants, Peking duck, pepper, licorice and charcuterie in its seamless, thrillingly pure profile. As with Manfred’s other 2011s, the tannins are certainly present, yet they’re sweet, polished and have no hard edges. (JD)" (08/2014)
Starting Bid: $720.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Sine Qua Non "Distenta I" California Syrah ((98-100JD), 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, it erupts from the glass with a powerfully fragrant nose of red roses, Morello cherries, boysenberries and juicy blueberries, followed by hints of mocha, star anise, cardamom and cassia. The concentrated, full-bodied palate is jam-packed with bright, crunchy black, blue and red fruits. It has a rock-solid structure of firm, finely-grained tannins and seamless freshness lifting the shimmering layers to a long, energetic finish. The complexity and vivacity of this Syrah are simply jaw-dropping! (LPB)" (08/2021)
Starting Bid: $470.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Jamet Côte-Rôtie (96WS, 95VN). Wine Spectator: "Totally closed for business right now, with demure aromas and a hard-as-nails structure holding the core of damson plum, iron, red currant and lavender at bay for now. Yet the tannins are ripe and integrated, and the finish won't let go. Should be a classic when it emerges fully. (JM)" (06/2010)
Starting Bid: $675.00

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Sine Qua Non "Trouver L'Arène" California Syrah (100JD, 100RP, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah Trouver L’Arene was made using 34% whole cluster and has a deep purple-black color with intense cassis, black plums and black cherries scents plus hints of anise, violets, sage and tar, with wafts of savory/smoked meat suggestions. Full-bodied, this voluptuous beauty is seriously singing in the mouth, belting out vibrant red and black fruit flavor layers, all framed by very fine, rounded, ripe tannins and a wonderful freshness, finishing with persistent perfumed fruit and a spring in its step.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99RP, 96WE, 95VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While a lot of the 2012s came in near the bottom of the barrel score, that wasn't the case with the 2012 Syrah Bionic Frog and this beauty flirts with perfection. Inky colored and purple to the rim, it offers extraordinary notes of black fruits, wild mushrooms, smoked earth and salty minerality. (JD)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $500.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah (97RP, 95WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 750 cases (which means good yields for John, although any normal person would call 1.5-1.75 tons per acre financial suicide) of the 2012 Syrah Reva Alban Estate Vineyard, and it's a terrific vintage for this cuvee. Elegant, pretty, even finesse driven, with its classic marine and salty bouquet of smoke, purple fruits, olives and violets, this full-bodied Syrah has no hard edges, integrated acidity and a great finish. After the cool, and then cold, 2010 and 2011 vintages, 2012 through 2014 is a return to the more generous, layered and voluptuous style of wine that this estate is known for. (JD)" (08/2016)

Of the 2016 Stolpman "Originals" Ballard Canyon Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "From the original Syrah vines of the estate, the 2016 Syrah Originals is similarly inky purple-colored and boasts killer notes of crème de cassis, black raspberries, crushed violets, peppery spice, and hints of vanilla. Seamless, medium to full-bodied, and elegant, it's another brilliant Syrah from this estate to drink over the coming decade or more." (10/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Capo dei Putti" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (99JD, 98VN, 96RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the reds, the extended barrel-aged 2014 Syrah Capo Dei Putti boasts an insane bouquet of cedarwood, white chocolate, caramelized meats, candle way, and assorted red and black fruits. With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and an incredible elegance, it changed every time I came back to the glass and is a multi-dimensional, riveting red wine from California. A blend of 90% Syrah and the balance Viognier, Petite Sirah, and Grenache, partially destemmed and aged 38 months in 94% new French oak, give this beauty 2-3 years of bottle age, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 10-15 years." (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Sine Qua Non "The Hated Hunter" California Syrah (100JD, 98RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "Named after Manfred’s grandfather, the 2017 Syrah The Hated Hunter is 82.4% Syrah, 7.8% Petite Sirah, 5.2% Mourvèdre, 2% Grenache, and the rest a mix of white varieties that spent just over 23 months in 59% new French oak. A classic 2017, it has an incredible nose of spice red and black fruits, ground pepper, dried flowers, and sandalwood. With full-bodied richness, no hard edges, gorgeous purity of fruit, and a finish that won't quit, it has everything you could want from a bottle of wine. " (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah (95RP, 94WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Syrah Reva is classic in style, with its iodine, olive and salty, marine-like character front and center. Coming from the gravelly, sandy clay loam soils on the estate, it shows more textbook Syrah character with air (very northern Rhone-like) and has first rate complexity, gorgeous dark fruit and brilliant overall purity. Showing almost no evolution, with full-bodied richness, fine tannin and a balanced, fresh and lengthy profile, it will continue to drink beautifully for another decade or more. (JD)" (04/2014)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Kongsgaard "Hudson Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (94RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blockbuster, opaque purple-colored 2003 Syrah Hudson Vineyard exhibits aromas of ground pepper, licorice, graphite, and smoke. While there is huge fruit and great richness, this cuvee appears to have shut down following bottling. Tannic, heady, and rich, it was difficult to coax out of the glass. There is a wonderful composty, underbrush, primordial character to these Syrahs, with an almost scorched earth component. Think of it as drinking a liquefied grilled steak. " (12/2005)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this bottle of 1999 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (100RP, 99WS, (95-98ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Cote Rotie La Turque reveals notes of toasty vanilla and espresso in addition to Asian spices, mocha, pepper, blackberries, creosote, and roasted meats. The exotic perfume is followed by a wine with phenomenal intensity, sweet, well-integrated tannin, huge body, and loads of concentrated fruit. It is a tour de force in winemaking. (RP)" (06/2003)
Starting Bid: $835.00

Of the 2016 Tensley "OGT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L), Jeb Dunnuck writes: "The 2016 Syrah OGT comes almost exclusively from the estate Colson Canyon, which is located high up in the hills above the town of Los Olivos. It offers a heavenly bouquet of sweet red and black fruits, Asian spices, dried flowers, and incense as well as a rounded, supple, straight-up thrilling style on the palate. Despite being a massive wine, it stays balanced, silky and seamless, with no sensation of weight. " (10/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Rouge (OWC - 100RP, 98WS, 95DC, 95VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Hermitage Ex Voto continues to top out on my scale. This extraordinary Hermitage has more minerality and delineation than the 2009, as well as overflowing aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, jammy blackberries, violets, graphite and wood smoke. Massively concentrated, full-bodied, decadent, layered and sexy, it needs short-term cellaring but should be just about immortal in the cellar. (JD)" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $1,320.00

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including 3-bottles of 2015 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (93JD, 91VN) and 3-bottles of 2016 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (96JD, 95W&S, 95WE, 94VN, 93WS, 92RP). Of the 2016 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "The 2016 Syrah Donna's is a slightly toned-down version of this cuvée yet still offers fabulous notes of bacon fat, violets, beef blood, crushed pepper, and huge salty minerality, all of which is grounded by a terrific core of dark fruit." (10/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Rockford "Basket Press" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine of majestic strength and power, richness and harmony, this full-bodied behemoth shows velvety tannin, 45+ seconds length, and knockout aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, smoke, and meaty notes. The wine is viscous yet nicely supported by acidity and ripe tannin. Still extremely youthful and unevolved, this wine will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring and keep for 20-25 years. This is undoubtedly a great vintage of Rockford. (RP)" (01/2002)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this bottle of 1997 M. Chapoutier "l'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge (95ST).

Starting Bid: $175.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Cayuse "En Cerise Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98WE, 96WS, 95RP, 94ST). Wine Enthusiast: "The purity and potent, almost mystical aromas of the En Cerise Syrah conjure up flying carpet visions of purple and black fruits. The enticing aromatics have a citrusy lift, with orange peel and incense, like drinking a Persian rug. Amazingly complex, seamless, dense, and elegant, it’s a wine that never stops, as new flavors keep emerging the longer it breathes. *No. 6 Top 100 of 2013, Editors' Choice* (PG)" (12/2013)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Alban "Lorraine" Edna Valley Syrah (98JD). Jeb Dunnuck: "Reminding me of a great vintage of Guigal's Côte Rôtie La Mouline, the 2017 Syrah Lorraine is brilliant stuff that ranks with the finest Syrahs in the vintage. Dense purple-hued, with a kaleidoscope-like nose of red and black fruits, spring flowers, camphor, spice, and ground pepper, this beauty hits the palate with a full-bodied, multi-dimensional texture, a stacked mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a thrilling finish that keeps you (me, anyway) coming back to the glass. From a more challenging vintage for the Central Coast and all of California, this is a testament to the talent and genius of John Alban. Drink this spectacular Syrah any time over the coming 25-30 years." (09/2021)
Starting Bid: $575.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Cayuse "En Chamberlin" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99JD, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Lots of Graves-like smoked earth, tobacco, and cold fireplace notes emerge from the 2018 Syrah En Chamberlin Vineyard. It shows more classic gamey Syrah notes with air, offering ample amounts of bloody blue fruits, iron, and peppered meat nuances. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and nicely concentrated on the palate, with gorgeous tannins, it has the purity and elegance that's the hallmark of the vintage, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's just another spectacular, singular Syrah from this estate that will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 20+ years. " (05/2021)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Joseph Phelps "Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah ((90-92VN), 91RP). Vinous: "The 2013 Syrah Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard has really come together nicely. Today, the 2013 is bright, punchy and aromatic, with lovely floral and savory overtones. Mint, sage, rose petal, sweet red cherry and pomegranate are all pushed forward. This is an unusually forward, open wine for the year, but I doubt that will be much of an issue for most readers, as the 2013 is incredibly delicious today. The 50% whole clusters are barely perceptible. (AG)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $27.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Booker "Fracture" Paso Robles Syrah (99RP, 94WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Fracture is an utterly sensational blend of 100% Syrah, all from the estate Booker Vineyard, that exhibits off-the-chart notes of creme de cassis, crushed flowers, licorice, vanilla bean and toasted spice. Possessing perfect integration of its fruit, alcohol, tannin and acidity, it's full-bodied and incredibly seamless, with terrific concentration, a full, layered mid-palate and a blockbuster finish. Paso Robles Syrah at its finest, this incredible wine will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, yet thrill through 2025. Hats off to Eric Jensen for this absolutely killer effort and readers who doubt the quality of wine coming from these rolling hills west of Paso Robles need to try this wine. (JD)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $230.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2001 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage ((98-100RP), 96W&S, 96WS, (90-93ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The black-colored 2001 Ermitage l’Ermite may be equal to the perfect 1996. Awesome levels of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and white flowers are followed by a superbly concentrated, etched, long, deep wine with multiple layers, a fabulous texture, and virtually perfect balance as well as harmony. Possessing great stature and intensity, it is a monumental achievement. (RP)" (06/2003)

Bid on this bottle of 1992 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (96JH, 94WS, 92RP). James Halliday: "Outstanding dense but bright purple-red; a powerful, concentrated bouquet with blackberry, mulberry and licorice aromas, and the oak seemingly more restrained than is usual. A powerful but impeccably balanced and structured wine, redolent of black cherry, licorice and mulberry fruit flavours; oozing class, breeding and staying power. It will be very interesting to watch the development of this wine versus the much-vaunted '90 and '91 vintages. " (07/2011)
Starting Bid: $374.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2018 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (100JD, 98JS, 98RP, 95WS, 94VN, 93WE). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Syrah Bionic Frog comes from the Coccinelle Vineyard in the Rocks district of Milton-Freewater. It’s always one of the richest, most concentrated Syrahs in the lineup, yet it doesn't give an inch with regard to elegance and purity. The 2018 was aged mostly in demi-muids (there's often a portion aged in foudre) and hit 14.4% natural alcohol. This deeper ruby/purple-hued beauty offers a gorgeous bouquet of black raspberries, redcurrants, tapenade, bacon fat, and wood smoke, with a touch of reductive scorched earth and graphite nuances. This carries to a full-bodied Syrah with ultra-fine yet building tannins, a layered, deep, textured mouthfeel, and flawless overall balance. It's another magical, incredibly pure Syrah from the genius of Baron that will benefit from just 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over two decades." (05/2021)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Bila-Haut "Rectificando Invenies (RI)" Côtes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde (91WS). Wine Spectator: "Powerful and complex, with pepper and iron notes behind the dark currant, wild plum and dried raspberry flavors.

Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (98JD, 96VN, 95RP, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Booker Vineyard got a few expletives and wows in the notes. It’s a full-bodied, flamboyant, straight essence of Paso Robles beauty that’s loaded with notions of black fruits, chocolate, ground pepper, candied orange peel, and spring flowers. It’s a masculine, powerhouse of a Syrah, which is classic Booker Vineyard. 98+" (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Christopher Tynan "Judge Family Vineyard" Bennett Valley Syrah (98JD). Jeb Dunnuck: "Along with the 2013, the 2016 Syrah Judge Family Vineyard is up with the greats, and I’d put this up against any Syrah in California or France. Offering incredible purity of fruit as well as notes of blueberries, blackberries, crushed flowers, gamey meats, and pepper, it’s more forward and opulent than the 2015 yet has fabulous depth and concentration, ripe tannins, and a finish that won’t quit. Hats off to Tynan for another insanely good Syrah that can be drunk today or cellared for 20 years or more." (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bursting from the glass, the 2017 Syrah has a mineral essence with aromas of summer sausage, black raspberry, blackberry and dark plum with savory aromas of black pepper spices, potpourri, touches of cocoa powder and freshly roasted coffee bean. The wine has a focus and precision that presides with the top bottlings from around the world. Aromas of newly tilled earth explode from the glass with floral notions of lilac and rose nuances that waft with spicy tones. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is seamless, bounding forth with complexity and a velvety richness that is exponentially compounded by the power the resides at its core. (AM)" (08/2020)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley (99RP, 96ST, 95JH, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 RunRig opens with wonderful perfume, and though this label usually contains a splash of Viognier, which could account for the fragrant nose, it has none this vintage. Redolent of violets and blueberries it is very spicy with an undercurrent of anise and Indian spices muddled with mulberries. Taut and elegant on the palate, it gives plenty of concentrated fruit flavor with crisp acid and firm, fine tannins. It finishes long. (LPB)" (02/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage (100RP, 95VN, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, and topping out on my scale, the 2003 Ermitage le Pavillon comes all from the granite soils of the Les Bessards lieu-dit and was aged 100% in new barrels. Its inky ruby/black color is followed by off the hook aromas and flavors of plum, creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rocks and violet/incense-like qualities. This gives way to a full-bodied, dense, seamless and textured 2003 that has building tannin, awesome concentration and a blockbuster finish. Drink it anytime over the coming two decades, although, as with the Le Meal, it’s gorgeous now. (JD)" (04/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including 3-bottles of 2019 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (96JD, 95RP, 94VN, 91W&S) and 3-bottles of 2019 Melville "Indigéne" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah . Of the 2019 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Deeper purple-hued, the 2019 Syrah Donna's offers a more exotic, feral, wild side to Syrah and reminds me of an old school Cornas, yet with ripe California fruit. Ground pepper, black olives, tapenade, and bloody red and blue fruits all define the bouquet, and it's full-bodied, with moderate acidity, ripe polished tannins, and a monster of a finish. This cuvée is made in a more finesse-driven, elegant style today, and it shines for its balance, purity, and complexity. It's a singular, gorgeous Syrah that could come from nowhere else." (08/2021)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Thierry-Allemand "Chaillot" Cornas (94WS, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "A really dark, grippy style, with boysenberry and macerated currant fruit laced with pastis, violet and iron notes. The long, structured finish is pushed by a bright iron note and superfresh acidity. Hard to resist now, but will only blossom more with time. (JM)" (02/2009)
Starting Bid: $510.00

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Sine Qua Non "Ziehharmonika" California Syrah (99JD, 99RP, 98VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored—WOW—perfumed black and blue fruits prance out of the glass, revealing accents of candied violets and cinnamon stick, supporting the plum preserves, blackberry compote and garrigue-scented core, plus hints of molten dark chocolate, licorice, Chinese five spice and bacon with a touch of iron ore. The densely laden, full-bodied palate is seriously showy, featuring flamboyant black fruit preserves and exotic spice layers with a solid backbone of ripe, rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length and loads of earth, pepper and floral fireworks. (LPB)" (08/2021)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2015 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah (93DC, 93WE, 92VN, 90JD). Wine Enthusiast: "Very rich and lush aromas of black currant that are zesty rather than overripe meet with hints of chaparral, cherry wood smoke and sweet lavender on the nose of this wine. There's a strong sagebrush quality to the sip, with blackberry sauce and peppercorn husks in the midpalate. The acidity is prime, the tannins are just sticky enough. (MK)" (02/2018)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2012 Lewis Cellars "Ethan's" Napa Valley Syrah (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Tightly focused on a core of tart, earthy dark berry, cedar, chicory and dill flavors, staying trim and tannic throughout. Needs air or cellar time. (JL)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage ((95-96VN), 96WS, 94RP, 94WE). Vinous: "1#: Explosively floral, with remarkable purity and a strong licorice tone. #2: Spicier sample, with strong cherry pit and graphite on the palate and a bright, zesty quality. #3: Solid and chewy, with strong bitter cherry, dark chocolate and tobacco qualities ('this batch gives the wine its skeleton'). #4 (all Peleat): Incredibly sweet and minerally, like a great Griotte-Chambertin, with amazing purity of cherry and raspberry fruit. A great '04 in the making. (JR)" (02/2007)
Starting Bid: $705.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Clarendon Hills "Piggott Range" Syrah South Australia (97RP, 96JH, 95WS, 93ST, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035. (JM)" (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Alban "Seymour's Vineyard" Edna Valley Syrah (100JD, 98RP, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine is the 2016 Syrah Seymour's, and it too is as classic an expression of this terroir as you could imagine. Sporting a deep purple/black color as well as a Guigal La Landonne-like bouquet of smoked black fruits, cured meats, crushed violets, spice, and crushed stone-like minerality, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, flawless balance, a massive mid-palate, and a blockbuster of a finish. Always the more structured, austere, and backward of the three Syrahs from Alban, it nevertheless has incredible purity of fruit. It won't hit maturity for another decade and will most likely have 30-40 years of overall longevity." (08/2020)
