Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2009 Reynvaan "The Contender" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (95JD, 94WS, 93RP, 92ST, 91W&S) and 2-bottles of 2009 Reynvaan "The Unnamed" Walla Walla Syrah (95JD, 93W&S, 93WS, 92RP, 91ST). Of the 2009 Reynvaan "The Contender" Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "A seeming mix of the underlying savory and mineral qualities found in the Stoneessence, and the purity of the Unnamed Syrah, the 2009 Reynvaan Family Vineyards Syrah The Contender is a seamless, perfectly put together Syrah that offers up pure aromas of blackberry, lavender, violet, pepper, and floral nuances on the nose. It is seamless and elegant on the palate, yet has serious underlying structure and depth to go with juicy acidity and an alluring freshness and purity that comes out more with air." (06/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2017 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97JD, 97RP, 96VN, 95JS, 94WS, 93WE) and 1-bottle of 2018 Cayuse "Cailloux Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97JD, 96JS, 96WS). Of the 2017 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2017 Syrah Armada Vineyard bursts out of the glass with complex and expressive aromas of blackberry, black tea, savory and umami tones of crushed black pepper, grilled meat and dried lilac and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is elegant and seamless on the palate, unfolding beautifully with precision and intention, offering up instant gratification in youth. (AM)" (08/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Franck Balthazar "Chaillot" Cornas (96VN, 92W&S). Vinous: "Inky ruby. An alluringly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, candied licorice, exotic spices and incense, and shows a bright mineral topnote. Stains the palate with intense, spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors that deepen and become sweeter with aeration. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and finesse and finishes extremely long and spicy, with smooth tannins sneaking in late. (JR)" (04/2018)
Starting Bid: $181.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1988 Gentaz-Dervieux "Côte Brune - Cuvée Réservée" Côte-Rôtie (98VN, 96JG). Vinous: "I tasted the 1988 Côte-Rôtie Côte Brune from Domaine Gentaz-Dervieux after a flight of rather formulaic Chapoutier wines. The Gentaz-Dervieux is on a completely different level. Showing some signs of bricking on the rim, the bouquet is pixelated in clarity, adorned with effervescent scents of red cherries, garrigue, fennel, orange blossom and wilted rose petals. The palate does not stint on fruit intensity, and yet the finesse and grace of this Côte-Rôtie is quite profound. Perfectly balanced, long and tender, the 1988 is a stunning Northern Rhône, and yet the munificent donor said he had experienced better bottles. The mind boggles. (NM)" (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $3,900.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1982 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1982 is a wonderful surprise. It has always been delicious and iIt has put on weight yet retains its exotic, over-the-top style. Fully mature, but capable of lasting another decade or more, the 1982 La Chapelle possesses a dark garnet color with an amber edge. The glorious nose of Asian spices, roasted espresso, creamy cassis fruit, and hints of Peking duck lathered with hoisin sauce gives this wine, with its notes of prunes, plums, and cassis, an exotic yet compelling allure. Among all the vintages of the eighties and nineties, the 1982 is my favorite for current drinking. Sumptuous and full-bodied, with a creamy texture and sweet tannin, it is a dazzling La Chapelle for consuming over the next decade." (06/2000)
Starting Bid: $266.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Delas Frères "Les Bessards" Hermitage (97WS, 95RP, 94WE, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Supertaut now, but loaded with racy black currant, fig and suave mocha notes, all pushed by racy tannins. This offers loads of briary grip, but it's sweet and ripe, with a minerality that blazes through on the finish. Should cruise in the cellar. (JM)" (07/2008)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (96RP, 94WE, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More sweet, ripe and up-front, with a downright sexy profile, the 2003 James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock checks in as a blend of 88% Syrah, 8% Grenache and 4% Mourvedre. From a hot vintage and a time when producers were pushing on the ripeness scale, this blockbuster pulls it off in style and offers up loads of sweet blackberry and kirsch fruit, dried flowers, incense, garrigue and licorice-like aromas and flavors. Showing tons of sweet fruit on the palate, with full-bodied richness and depth, sweet tannin and a great finish, it’s made in an unabashedly pedal-to-the-metal style that won’t appeal to everyone, but I’m a fan. It should continue to put a smile on everyone’s face for another 3-5 years. (JD)" (07/2014)
Starting Bid: $70.00

Bid on this bottle 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: $190.00

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98JD, 98JS, 98RP, 96VN, 95WE, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Part of the magic that happens with the 2017 Syrah Bionic Frog is that it is opaque with neon purple edges without being inky and massive. With classic Syrah tones of smoked meat, leather, lavender, lilac and black pepper, the wine is rich with aromas of blackberry, black raspberry and smoked plum. Medium to full-bodied, the wine explodes with intention and precision on the palate, with an immaculate balance and crystal-clear focus. Brilliantly structured, the wine continues to evolve with subtle and seamlessly integrated spice tones compounded by a mineral tension and a floral lift to make this wine float across the mid-palate. (AM)" (08/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Donelan "Obsidian Vineyard" Knights Valley Syrah (100JD, 99RP, 97VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2013 Syrah Obsidian Vineyard is an utterly perfect wine and just couldn’t get any better. Possessing a huge, singular perfume of blueberries, bacon fat, charcoal, pepper, and woodsmoke, it’s deep, layered, and multi-dimensional on the palate, with full-bodied richness, perfectly ripe tannin, perfect balance, and a finish that just won’t quit. Syrah lovers need to beg, borrow, or steal to get a bottle of this!" (06/2018)
Starting Bid: $251.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Donelan "Walker Vine Hill" Russian River Valley Syrah (94JD, 92RP, 92VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2012 Syrah Walker Vine Hill is another ripe, concentrated 2012 from this estate. Sporting a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of blackberries, blueberries, crushed rock, peppery herbs, and charcoal, it has an elegant, moderately tannic and concentrated style that’s going to benefit from another year or three of bottle age. It doesn’t appear to hit the heights of the 2013 now, yet it’s also more closed and reticent. It should be at its best from 2019-2030. (JD)" (07/2017)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Chapoutier "Les Becasses" Cote Rotie (95WS, 91ST). Wine Spectator: "Offers a lovely perfume, with black tea and singed mesquite wafting through, while sleek, very refined black currant and black cherry fruit races along. The long, iron-tinged finish is very precise. Best from 2013 through 2025. (JM)" (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this magnum of 1999 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (1.5L) (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a far superior nose compared to the ’98: quite a lot of cedar, a little gamey with far more personality. Very well-balanced on the palate, pure raspberry, redcurrant and cherry. Very good definition with a lithe, focused finish. Just bursting with life and joie-de-vivre. Excellent. (NM)" (05/2009)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Andremily "No. 7" Santa Barbara County Syrah ((97-100JD)). Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 86% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, and the rest Viognier, 50% destemmed, the 2018 No 7 comes from a mix of top vineyards in Santa Barbara County and will spend 22 months in 65% new French oak. Inky hued, with a killer nose of bacon fat, charcoal, ground pepper, smoked game, and both black and blue fruits, it's deep and full-bodied, offering incredible purity of fruit, building tannins, and a great finish. It's another brilliant, brilliant wine in the making that's unquestionably in the same league as the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Don't miss it." (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $335.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (99JD, 98RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 1990 Hermitage is fully mature yet holding beautifully. Perfumed notes of sweet cassis and blackberry fruits, rose hips, smoked meats, and exotic spices all flow to a full-bodied, layered, seamless, flawlessly balanced Hermitage that glides over the palate with no sensation of weight or heaviness. With resolved tannins, beautiful purity, and a great finish, it’s unquestionably ready to go, yet should hold nicely for another 8-10 years." (03/2019)
Starting Bid: $1,800.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Shafer "Relentless" Napa Valley Syrah (95RP, 95WE, 93W&S, 93WS, 92CG, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The anomaly in the Shafer portfolio is the Relentless, which is created from the southern foothills of the Vaca mountain range and was debuted largely at the insistence of Elias Fernandez. The first vintage was 1999, and this big, massive, Rhône Valley-inspired wine is certainly a wine capable of lasting 20-25 years. A blend always dominated by Syrah, but with various percentages of Petite Sirah, the 2013 Relentless has a tiny quantity of Petite Sirah (only 3%). It is a stunning wine, with notes of roasted meats, beef blood, lavender, new saddle leather, blackberry and pepper, followed by a wine with a huge, massive, plush texture, an opulence and richness that are stunning, and a long, long finish. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot 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. (LPB)" (09/2017)
Starting Bid: $510.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah (96JD, (95-96JS), 96RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Reva (Syrah) is stunningly beautiful. This is a relatively delicate, feminine Reva that impresses for its length, balance and utter purity of fruit. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and silky, saline notes wrap around the expressive fruit on the long, polished finish. A hint of truffles adds to the wine’s sensual, totally beguiling personality. In 2008, the Reva is drop-dead gorgeous. Readers should note that, in this vintage, there is no Lorraine or Seymour’s, so the 2008 is a 'super-Reva!' (AG) 96+" (08/2012)
Starting Bid: $385.01

Bid on this 5-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2014 Bedrock Wine Company "Griffin's Lair" Sonoma Coast Syrah (95VN), 1-bottle of 2014 Bedrock Wine Company "Hudson Vineyard South T 'n' S Blocks" Carneros Syrah, and 2-bottles of 2015 Bedrock Wine Company "Gibson Ranch - Heritage Wine" "McDowell Valley Syrah. Of the 2014 Bedrock Wine Company "Griffin's Lair" Sonoma Coast Syrah, Vinous writes: "The 2014 Syrah Griffin's Lair Vineyard is dazzling. Remarkably sculpted for such a big wine, the Griffin's Lair possesses remarkable depth and intensity from start to finish. Dark red cherry, plum, rose petal and violets are given an extra kick of aromatic lift from the 60% whole clusters. The flavors are so vivid and pure. Still, readers should plan on giving the 2014 at least a few years in bottle. Even today, though, the Griffin's Lair is a knock-out. (AG)" (02/2016)
Starting Bid: $155.00

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (96JD, 96RP, 96WS, (94-95VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from bottle, the 2011 Hermitage sports a ruby/purple color to go with an awesome bouquet of sweet cassis, dried flowers, spice-box, ground pepper and crushed stone. One of the more serious, focused and structured 2011s, it has fabulous concentration, sweet tannin and a seamless texture. (JD) 96+" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $230.88

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2012 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (97RP, 94ST) and 1-bottle of 2013 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (96RP, 95JH, 94ST). Of the 2012 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Very deep purple-black in color, the 2012 Amon Ra reveals intense notes of blackcurrant cordial, blackberry compote and licorice with nuances of cloves, allspice, chocolate box and salami as well as a whiff of espresso. The 100% Shiraz palate offers a beast of a wine that is densely packed with black fruit and baking spice flavors and is supported with firm, grainy tannins and crisp acid through to a finish with excellent persistence. (LPB) 97+" (02/2014)
Starting Bid: $115.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2001 Carlisle Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah (94RP) and 1-bottle of 2002 Carlisle Sonoma County Syrah (94RP, 93WS). Of the 2001 Carlisle Dry Creek Valley Petite Sirah , Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The enormously concentrated, inky purple-colored, full-bodied, thick, juicy 2001 Petite Sirah reveals a striking bouquet of violets, blackberries, blueberries, licorice, and camphor. (RP)" (08/2003)
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this 3-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: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Clarendon Hills "Astralis" Syrah Clarendon South Australia (98RP, 98WE, 97WS, 96ST, 95JH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of Australia’s most prodigious Syrahs, Clarendon Hills’ 2004 Syrah Astralis is fashioned from vines planted in 1920, and spends time in 100% new French oak from the cooper, Cadus. It boasts off the charts intensity as well as an opaque purple color, and notes of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, roasted coffee beans, pepper, smoke, and a hint of sweet toasty oak. This full-bodied, rich, intense, backward Syrah needs 2-3+ hours in the decanter if one is going to approach it at this point in its life. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2040+. (RP)" (10/2006)
Starting Bid: $260.88

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: $675.00

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Penfolds "Grange" South Australia (96WS, 93RP). Wine Spectator: "Amazingly ripe and lush, this bubbles with vibrant fruit like a mouthful of cassis syrup, concentrated, elegant and remarkably silky in texture. Blackberry, currant and vanilla flavors ooze over palate, making for a thoroughly hedonistic drink. (HS)" (01/1997)
Starting Bid: $387.00

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Behrens & Hitchcock "Homage to Ed Olivera" Napa Valley Syrah ((91-94ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Knockout nose combines blackberry, minerals, violet, graphite and licorice, along with a distinctly rocky quality. Rich and quite purple in flavor, hinting at blackberry and violet pastille; very backward and evolving slowly. Extremely tactile, even saline, and not at all an overly sweet style of Syrah. Finishes with powerful tannins and sneaky length. Still an infant, but a fascinating sample. (ST)" (05/2004)
Starting Bid: $25.00

Of the 2013 K Vintners "Cattle King - Upland Vineyard" Snipes Mountain Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2013 Syrah Cattle King is a smokin', layered, sexy, voluptuous Syrah that does everything right. Coming from the River Rock Vineyard in Walla Walla and the Upland Vineyard in Snipes Mountain, not destemmed and brought up all in larger barrels, this beauty offers a sensational perfume of smoked meats, pepper, licorice, black olives and assorted ripe black fruits. Deep, layered and concentrated, yet always light on its feet and elegant, this fabulous Syrah has a terrific mid-palate, a core of sweet fruit and blockbuster length. It's a tour de force in vintage and certainly one of the top wines. (JD)" (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (96WS, 95RP, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Offers an amazing depth of smoky, espresso-flavored toast that is seamlessly interwoven with bittersweet Valrhona chocolate, black currant and fig fruit, and a great underlying minerality. Supersilky, with a floral finish. Equally lush and captivating on both the nose and palate--a rare feat. *Collectibles* (JM)" (07/2004)
Starting Bid: $245.88

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Dark Blossom" California Syrah (99RP, 96VN, (94-95ST)). 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)

Of the 2008 Charles Smith "Royal City" Columbia Valley Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2008 Royal City Syrah was sourced from the Stoneridge Vineyard. It displays a soaring perfume of sandalwood, garrigue, lavender, smoke, bacon, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Super-concentrated, it deftly marries power and elegance in a seamless wine that should see its 20th birthday in peak form. I met up with Charles at his new wine bar in Walla Walla before we drove out to the winery in his 1949 Cadillac, a picture of which is on the web-site (not the deluxe model like my grandfather used to drive). (JM)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2006 Shirvington Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (95RP, 91JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Shiraz was barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in 85% new oak, with the barrels 90% American and 10% French. Saturated purple in color, it reveals a splendid bouquet of smoke, pencil lead, bacon, grilled meat, and blueberry. Supple-textured and opulent, this full-bodied Shiraz offers a range of spicy, complex flavors, superb balance, and enough well-concealed tannin to support 5-7 years of additional cellaring. This hedonistic Shiraz should drink well through 2026. Shirvington’s proprietors are Paul and Lynn Shirvington and the winemaker is Kim Jackson. Two wines, a Cabernet and a Shiraz, are produced annually from estate vineyards that are now 20 years of age. (JM)" (10/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Flamboyant as well as focused, with laser-like precision, the 2002 Shiraz Alice’s was produced from 7-year-old vines. Dense, with remarkable intensity and wonderful freshness, it is a cool climate Barossa Shiraz with good acidity, enormous concentration, and a backward style that promises to be ethereal with 4-5 more years of bottle age. It should last for two decades or more." (10/2005)

Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Pax "Sonoma Hillsides" Sonoma County Syrah (100VN, 94DC). Vinous: "The 2016 Syrah Sonoma-Hillsides has been nothing less than stunning on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. A wine of extraordinary purity and depth, the 2016 dazzles from the very first taste. The richness and power are simply breathtaking. Bacon fat, smoke, grilled herb and lavender are woven into a graceful, seamless core of inky blue/purplish fruit. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 remains remarkably light on its feet. The Sonoma-Hillsides is a blend of fruit from Castelli-Knight Ranch, Griffin's Lair and Walker Vine Hill, done with 100% whole clusters and aged in a combination of concrete and neutral oak, with no SO2.(AG)" (04/2018)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge ((96-98RP), 96WS, (93-95VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Ermitage l’Ermite is almost painfully backwards and tight, with a liquid rock-like character permeating its lead pencil, beef blood/iodine, liquid violets, and black and blue fruits. Possessing more concentration and depth than just about every other wine I was able to taste in the vintage, this full-bodied, structured, backwards beast of an Hermitage will need 5-7 years of cellaring and keep for three decades.

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2010 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah ((95-97JD), 97RP, 97WE, 95ST, 93WS) and 1-bottle of 2014 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99RP, 94VN, 93DC, 93WE, 92WS). Of the 2014 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "From the highest density vineyard planted under the Cayuse label, the 489-case 2014 Syrah Armada Vineyard is about as umami and earthy as it gets. Smoke, fireplace, mushroom, black cherry, currants and olive notes all emerge from this rich, backward, tight and structured Syrah that has incredible purity of fruit, a saline/bloody, meaty character that develops with time in the glass, and tons of tannic bite on the finish. Forget this incredible wine for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two decades. (JD) 99+" (06/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Delas Freres "Domaine des Tourettes" Hermitage (98RP, 96JD, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that flirts with perfection is the inky and opaque 2009 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes. Coming from L'Ermite, le Sabot, and Les Bessards, and aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels, it gives up a heavenly bouquet of crushed rocks, blackberries, leather, wild herbs and earth. Massively concentrated on the palate, with another level of fruit and texture over the 2010, it has brilliant purity, building tannin and a blockbuster finish. There's enough tannin here to warrant hiding in the cellar for 4-5 years, but it should last for 3-4 decades. (JD)" (09/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Paul Lato "Il Padrino - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (100JD, 96RP, 95VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "There are two Syrahs from Lato, both brilliant wines yet distinctly different. The most masculine, peppery, and gamey is the 2018 Syrah Il Padrino, which comes from the Bien Nacido Vineyard located just outside the town of Santa Maria. Its deep ruby purple color is followed by textbook Bien Nacido notes of bacon fat, cracked pepper, beef blood, bouquet garni, blackberries, and darker currants. It's a heavenly, concentrated, powerful wine that offers everything I look for in a great wine: richness without heaviness, incredible complexity, a singular character, and the ability to deliver both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure. Drink this incredible Syrah over the coming 10-12 years." (08/2020)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1999 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (92RP, 91ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Syrah Eisele Vineyard (a blend of 94% Syrah and 6% Viognier) boasts an opaque ruby/purple color along with gorgeous, complex aromatics of melted asphalt, graphite, blackberry liqueur, coffee, and a hint of pepper. This full-bodied Syrah reveals surprising freshness, finesse, and elegance despite its size. The wine is long, rich, and French in style. Araujo's Syrah program continues to impress. Crop levels have dropped even lower, resulting in a small production (generally less than 400 cases per vintage). (RP)" (08/2002)
Starting Bid: $260.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1998 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (91ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. Very complex aromas of raspberry, tar, smoked meat and burnished oak. Big, rich and smoky, with a sophisticated texture and hints of exotic fruits. Very suave, smooth Syrah." (05/2001)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 M. Chapoutier Ermitage "L'Ermite" Rouge (96RP, 95WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Ermitage l'Ermite is a wine that borders on perfection compared to its backward performance last year from barrel. Sadly, there are usually 500-600 cases of the cuvee, but in 1999 only 400 were produced. It comes from Chapoutier's oldest vines (most over 100 years of age), and represents the essence of both Hermitage and Syrah. From bottle, the 1999 l'Ermite reveals an old style Lafleur character in its kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, blackberries, and striking minerality. It has put on considerable weight since last year, but is essentially an elegant, ethereal effort with incredible intensity as well as amazing lightness. It is a phenomenal expression of terroir. However, be forewarned, anyone expecting to derive a lot of pleasure from this before another fifteen years elapse, will be disappointed. (RP)" (04/2002)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot 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."

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2009 Paul Lato "Cinematique - Larner Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah ((95-98JD), 97JS, 93ST) and 3-bottles of 2009 Paul Lato "Il Padrino - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (94JS, 94RP, 93ST). Of the 2009 Paul Lato "Cinematique - Larner Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Tasted just prior to bottling, the 2009 Paul Lato Syrah Cinematique Larner Vineyard, aged for 19 months in 33% new French oak, is slightly less exotic than the Bien Nacido and exhibits gorgeous black and red fruits, grilled beef, lead pencil, and serious crushed rock and liquid mineral like aromas and flavors.
