Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1976 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac. Clive Coates: "There is fruit and opulence here though in a somewhat flabby sort of way. Ripe, spicy but also some astringence on the nose. On the palate, in its burly way, this is one of the better of the 1976s. Good fruit, some richness, no lack of acidity. So still fresh and quite long. Medium body. Tasted October 1990." (Grands Vins: The Finest Châteaux of Bordeaux and Their Wines, pg 71) Notes on the label: "The French painter Pierre Soulages (1919-) discovered Cézanne and Picasso in the late Thirties. After the war he made a decisive move towards abstract work. He immediately caught the public imagination with a new visual language: a mesh of extended strokes of dark colour in conflict with the lyrical violence of a painting style produced by the use of combs: rubber or leather scrapers, knives, spatulas and a huge range of brushes. His canvases almost always use a non-colour, often black, but sometimes brown or cobal

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Cliff Lede Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 92JS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot, 7% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District offers up a cassis, smoked meat, blackberry preserves and spice cake-scented nose with a mocha hint. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated with firm, grainy tannins, it shows a lot of oak, which should marry with the intense fruit, finishing long and layered. (LPB)" (10/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Domaine Anne Gros Richebourg Grand Cru ((96-98RP), (93-96VN), (90-92BH)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Richebourg Grand Cru was actually more immediate on the nose compared to the Echézeaux (usually it is the other way round). Matured in one-third new oak, it offers quite intense yet pure aromas of blackberry, briary, incense, potpourri and crushed stone all with very impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, red and black fruit intermingling and embroidered with orange zest and minerals. I love the delineation and poise expressed by this Richebourg, and the length is one of the best that I have encountered in almost two decades visiting the domaine. Do not, on any account, underestimate this Richebourg. (NM)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Château de la Tour Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (94WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: " Overflowing with pure raspberry and cherry flavors; this has a very ripe texture, lots of velvety tannins and a long, beautiful finish. Tastes like a barrel sample and needs time to come around; try after 1997. " (12/1992)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Henri Boillot Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (94BH, (91-94VN)). Vinous: "Lovely energy and perfume to the aromas of pineapple, citrus fruit, quinine and honey. Fat, silky and sweet but with plenty of framing minerality giving energy to the mid-palate. This really spreads out to coat the mouth. Builds nicely on the long finish, where hints of exotic fruits are enlivened by dusty minerality. (ST)" (09/2010)

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Ovid "Experiment F2.7" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. Notes from winemaker Austin Peterson: "We first planted our vineyard on Pritchard Hill back in 2000, clearing brush and removing boulders from the raw land. There was no vine history on the site so we cultivated 15 acres with 17 different clone and rootstock combinations to see what would work best with our newly cleared rocky, volcanic mountain top. We experimented by fermenting each block separately, tracking each lot’s evolution for a year and recording the differences. This analytical process helped us develop a deep understanding of how each block behaves and how it responds to changes in farming practices. Co-fermentation trials used in producing the Experiment white wine inspired us to try choosing lots to ferment by the underlying chemistry of soil, rather than by block design. The 2017 Experiment F2.7 is a harmonious blend that exhibits juicy notes of cola, black-berry, rhubarb entwined with baking s

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Frias "Oakville Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (92JS, 90RP). James Suckling: "Plenty of blackberry and blackcurrant character. Medium to full body, a solid core of fruit and a silky texture. " (12/2016)
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99JS, 98DC, 98RP, 96VN, 94WS). James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle. Full-bodied yet linear and very refined with a very persistent finish. It shows drive and brightness. So refined at the end. Needs at least three to five years to come together. " (02/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Sine Qua Non "Atlantis fe203-1a" California Syrah (100RP, (94-95VN), 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The perfect 2005 Syrah Atlantis Fe 203-1a,b,c is a blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, with 25% whole clusters. Whereas the Ode to E is all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard, this cuvee is a combination of 43% from the estate vineyard, 28% from the White Hawk Vineyard, 21% from the Alban Vineyard, and 8% from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. The good news is there are nearly 1,500 cases of this recently released offering. An extraordinarily flowery nose interwoven with scents of blueberries, blackberries, incense, and graphite soars from the glass. Although not the biggest or most concentrated Syrah Krankl has made, it is one of the most nuanced, elegant, and complex. It remains full-bodied, but builds incrementally on the palate, and comes across as elegant and delicate, especially when compared to many California Syrahs. Nevertheless, the in

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2018 Aubert "Eastside Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay ((97-99RP), (95-98VN), 94JS, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Eastside is a warmer site in Russian River that is composed of very rocky, gravelly soils and planted to Montrachet clone. It is usually harvested second, after Sugar Shack. Wow—the 2018 Chardonnay Eastside has a truly compelling hazelnut/praline character with a core of spice cake, apple pie, peach preserves and clotted cream plus suggestions of cloves, allspice and brioche. Full-bodied, the palate is a powerhouse of savory layers, lifted by fantastic freshness and allowing the beautifully pristine apple and peach flavors to kick in on the long, long finish.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96JD, 96RP, 96WE, (93-95VN), 94WS, 93W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Now that it has been in bottle a while, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee is looking even better than I projected based on last year's prebottling sample. It's all violets, cherries, subtle allspice and clove and traditional garrigue notes of lavender and thyme. Full-bodied and rich, it's crazy complex, adding hints of tar and black olives on the long, silky finish. (JC)" (08/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Graham's Vintage Port (95RP, 95VN, 95WS). Vinous: "The 1994 Graham’s Vintage Port, which incidentally carries quite noticeable sediment, as there is no fining or filtration, is beginning to show a little bricking on the rim. The bouquet is very harmonious and welcoming, featuring aromas of mulberry, roasted chestnut, pressed rose petals, autumn leaves and a hint of liquorice. The nose is not powerful; rather, it displays a brooding intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin and lightly spiced with clove, pain d’épices and again, a scintilla of liquorice. Though it obviously has another 20 or 30 years in the tank, this mellow Graham’s is drinking beautifully now. Tasted at the Symington Tawny Port tasting at the Tower of London. (NM)" (12/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1993 & 1995 Williams-Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1993 Williams-Selyem "Olivet Lane" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and 1-bottle of 1995 Williams-Selyem "Hirsch" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94WS). Of the 1995 Williams-Selyem "Hirsch" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir,Wine Spectator writes: "Remarkably complex and flavorful. Rich, supple, concentrated, loaded with plum, cherry and wild berry flavors. Long, satisfying aftertaste." (10/1997)
Starting Bid: $155.00

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: $510.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 L'Aventure "Estate Cuvée" Paso Robles Red Blend (98RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A massive, gorgeously rich and decadent version of this cuvee, the 2014 Estate Cuvée (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah and 15% Petit Verdot) is reminiscent of a 2005 Pomerol with its huge bouquet of cassis, toasted spice, graphite, damp earth and leafy herb aromas and flavors. Thick, full-bodied, unctuous and palate-saturating, yet still with purity and grace, it's an insanely good Bordeaux blend (or close) from Paso Robles that will have two decades of overall longevity. (JD)" (08/2016)
Starting Bid: $420.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1992 Taylor Vintage Port (100RP, 98VN, 97JG, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineate

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1983 Graham's Vintage Port (93WS, 92RP). Wine Spectator: "A superb achievement from a very underrated year. Deep dark ruby-purple, with rich floral and violet aromas, full-bodied, with masses of strawberry flavors, full tannins and a long finish. (JS, Web Only-1989)"

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Roncières" ((92-94RP), 94WS, (91-93BH), (90-92VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Roncières has a delightful bouquet: red cherries, strawberry, a touch of black truffle and smoke, all understated at first but unfolding with each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is extremely pure and tensile, strangely not unlike a Morey-Saint-Denis in terms of structure, and you can feel the chalkiness coming through on the marine-tinged, saline finish. Excellent—and I suspect this will be very long lasting. There are just five barrels instead of the usual 11 due to frost. (NM)" (12/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Quilceda Creek Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2012 Quilceda Creek "Galitzine Vineyard" Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 94VN) and 1-bottle of 2012 Quilceda Creek "Palengat Vineyard" Horse Heaven Hills Bordeaux Blend (94RP, 93VN). Of the 2012 Quilceda Creek "Galitzine Vineyard" Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Another classic Cabernet Sauvignon from the Golitzin's, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard comes from the dry, windswept Red Mountain AVA and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a big, structured effort that offers lots of minerality and dusty earth in its blackcurrants, black cherry liqueur, smoked earth, licorice and charred-meat-driven bouquet. Firm, focused and tight, this has closed down substantially since I tasted it from barrel, yet has serious concentration, lots of tannin and a great finish. It needs 4-5 years to integrate all its components, and should evolve gracefully through 203

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Aubert "Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay ((97-99RP), (93-96VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the last vineyards picked, this section of Hyde vineyard in Carneros is planted to Corton Charlemagne clone on St. George rootstock. The 2018 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons leaps from the glass with vivacious fresh grapefruit, lemon peel, orange blossoms and lime cordial notes with nuances of fresh ginger, hay, sea spray and chalk dust. The full-bodied mouth explodes with the whole citrus-fruit flavor spectrum—lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruit on steroids—complemented by loads of spicy sparks and lifted by amazing freshness, sporting a provocatively creamy texture and finishing long.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Domaine Henri Boillot Meursault 1er Cru "Genevrières" (94BH, 94VN, 93RP, 93ST). Vinous: "Today, the 2011 Meursault Les Genevrières is a bit of a mystery. Texturally the wine is quite open, expressive and creamy, but the vineyard signatures are much less pronounced than they were a year ago. It may be that the wine is still a bit shy post-bottling, or the personality of the year may have become more pronounced with time. Only time will tell. The one thing that is for sure is that this is a gorgeous Genevrières endowed with tons of style. Slate, pear and crushed rock nuances linger on the close. (AG) 94+" (09/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Outpost "True Vineyard - Immigrant" Howell Mountain Bordeaux Blend (95JD, 94RP, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The Bordeaux blend is the 2015 True Vineyard Immigrant and it’s 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc that’s from a very rock site on Howell Mountain that was planted in 2001 and 2002. Blackcurrants, blueberries, black cherries, exotic flowers, and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, pure, beautifully seamless 2015 that has fine, fine tannin and a finish that won’t quit. Give this beauty 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 15-20." (12/2017)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Epoch "Authenticity - Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (96RP, 96VN, 95WE). Vinous: "Bright purple. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, violets, incense and smoky minerals, and a sexy floral topnote builds in the glass. Stains the palate with densely packed black and blue fruit liqueur, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that become livelier as the wine opens up. Displays outstanding power and sharp definition on a strikingly long, incisive finish that's given shape by steadily building tannins. 70% new French oak. (JR)" (02/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Lindstrom Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (93JD). Jeb Dunnuck: "Made by Celia Welch and 100% Cabernet from the Stags Leap District from a mix of clones, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly floral and complex, with classic Stags Leap character in its spice, cedar, incense, and red and black fruit notes. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and just a classy wine, drink it over the coming 10-15 years or more." (01/2020)

Bid on this bottle of 1967 Quinta do Noval "Nacional" Vintage Port (95WS, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "This is exciting to drink now but try to hold yourself back. Deep ruby, with a ripe cassis and plum nose, lots of cassis, vanilla and fruit flavors, medium tannins and a long finish. (Web Only-1989)"
Starting Bid: $600.00

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Sine Qua Non "E-Raised" California Syrah (97RP, 93WE, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was also able to taste through a number of older vintages, including the 2001 Albino, 2006 Hoodoo Man, 2003 The Inaugural, 2004 Ode to E, 1998 E Raised, 2001 On Your Toes, 2005 Nail in My Cranium and 2007 Syrah Dangerous Birds. To say I came away impressed would be an understatement. Anyone who claims this big, rich style can't age needs to taste these wines. I opted to just list my scores for the older releases as I find Bob's initial write-ups spot on. About as good as it gets across the board, these singular, incredible wines are the result of an obsessive attention to detail at all stages of the wine making process. There is no secret or hidden magic going on here. The incredibly talented and down-to-earth Manfred Krankl simply walks the walk as opposed to only talking about attention to detail or offering up the standard, wine is made in the vineyard comments.

Of the 1996 Robert Mondavi Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon,Vinous writes: "Fresh, dark ruby-red. Dusty, liqueur-like aromas of black cherry and cassis, with a scotch-like hint of oak. Sensuous and silky in the mouth; superripe but quite bright, thanks to sound supporting acids. A bit more sharply delineated than the above. Very youthful wine, finishing with a slow-building, very long aftertaste. Tannins are substantial but fine-grained. (ST) 94+" (06/1999)

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - CCS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96JS, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another one of my favorites is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS, which is clone 4 from the To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. This is aged in 100% new Darnajou and is one of the larger cuvées at 510 cases. Wonderfully sweet, velvety tannins, a big sweet nose of white flowers, blackberry and cassis along with cedar wood, charcoal and graphite are all present in this full-bodied opulent wine that also retains wonderful elegance. It finished at 14.6% alcohol and will drink beautifully now as well as over the next 15-20 years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1978 J.-L. Chave Hermitage (96RP, 94JG, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has always been one of Chave's single greatest vintages, possibly equaled in recent years by 1989, 1991, 1994, and 1995, and possibly surpassed by 1990. Memorizing its aromas, its flavors, its texture, and its length is a quick education in what great wine is all about. Still an infant, with a murky, dark ruby/garnet color, this wine offers a smoky, tar, cassis, herb, and grilled meat set of aromatics, huge body, and mouth-searing tannin. This remains a very youthful wine-after nearly two decades of cellaring! Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025. (RP)" (01/1997)

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Schrader (aka Schrader Schrader) is another just about perfect wine from this unstoppable team at Schrader, which is lead by Thomas Rivers Brown. As with all these releases, it’s 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and spent 20 months in 75% new Darnajou barrels and 25% new Taransaud barrels. Deep purple-colored, with a mammoth bouquet of blue fruits, liquid violets, camphor, and incense along with hints of oak and graphite, it’s full-bodied, uber-rich and concentrated, yet also elegant and seamless.

Of the 2014 Aubert Carneros Chardonnay,A limited bottling of Carneros Chardonnay which isn't vineyard designated. Robert Parker writes of the winery writes: "It sounds like a broken record, but Mark Aubert is certainly one of a handful of California’s finest practitioners of Burgundy-styled, classic California Chardonnays... Mark Aubert had an impressive resumé long before he became this famous, mentored by Helen Turley when he was at Peter Michael, and from there spending impressive tenures at Colgin and Tom Futo’s winery before he went off bound for glory. I am a big buyer of these wines every year, and often serve the wines to strangers at charity events. They are consistently the favorites that people taste. All of Aubert’s wines tend to push about 15% natural alcohol as he is not shy about ripeness, but they also

Bid on this bottle of 1959 Ets Choyer & Cie Gevrey-Chambertin. Very old Burgundy is one of the wine world's rarest pleasures, but if you happen to find an example from one of the greatest vintages of the 20th century, then you jump on it. The 1959 vintage has always been a favorite among connoisseurs, a "great vintage for Burgundy" according to Jasper Morris MW, and the wines "showed their class and charm early on, and they never really closed up again." As an introduction to fully mature Burgundy, you'd be hard pressed to find a better candidate.

Loaded with kirsch, licorice, dried flowers and smoked meat-like aromas and flavors, this awesome 2009 has thrilling concentration, full-bodied richness and knockout length. It has the fruit to impress today, but needs 3-4 years of bottle age and will have over two decades of longevity. (JD)" (08/2014)

Aged 58 months (that’s not a typo) in French oak casks (the 2005, 2006, and 2007 vintages will spend 45-48 months in cask), the extraordinary 2004 is a 475-case blend of 92% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and the rest Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussane. Most of the Syrah comes from the Alder Springs Vineyard in Mendocino. This profound wine’s inky/purple color is followed by aromas of smoky barbecue meats, grilled Provencal herbs, and exotic tropical fruits intermixed with blackberry, cassis, blueberry, and graphite. This super-rich effort tastes like the nectar of Syrah, yet it is dry, elegant, and remarkably fresh and precise. In the mouth, the impression is like that of a multilayered cake -- everything is there. This is an amazing, very multi-dimensional wine that must be tasted to be believed. (RP)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan ((95-96JS), 95JD, 95RP, 95WE, 94VN, 93ST, 93WS). James Suckling: "The intensity here is taken up a notch with notes of pure cassis and currant that ripe Cabernet Sauvignon gives you. Full and velvety, with dark chocolate, stones, and blackberries. This is long and powerful." (01/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98DC, 93VN, 93WS, 92RP, 92ST). Decanter: "The richness of the texture takes a step up with this vintage, and the wines are at this point starting to display consistency and clarity of purpose. Black cherry meets the brambled hedgerow fruits, and a damson puree fills the mid-palate, this is deeply spiced with cloves and anise. The tannins are clear and present but silky. 3% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 40 days skin contact, moderate summer temperatrues and unhurried harvest. (JA)" (11/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1976 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (95VN, 94JD, 92RP). Vinous: "The 1976 Monte Bello is simply extraordinary, not to mention a superb example of 1970's California Cabernet Sauvignon. Nineteen seventy six was a drought year, and that very much comes through in the wine's ripeness and overall density, even after all these years. A wine of superb aromatic intensity and striking inner sweetness, the 1976 has it all. Scents of mint, licorice, tobacco and savory herbs add nuance throughout, but as is so often the case with older Monte Bellos, the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts. What a wine! (AG)" (06/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Futo Oakville Bordeaux Blend (98JD, 97RP, 96VN, 95JS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2015 Estate gets the award for the biggest, baddest, most massive wine in the lineup! A blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a deep purple color as well as a huge nose of blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, spice-box and crushed flowers. Possessing full-bodied richness, incredible depth of fruit, building tannin, and flat out awesome purity and freshness, it’s a tour de force that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 2+ decades. 98+" (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $255.00

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Remarkably complex, with a ripe core of currant, coffee, wild berry and cedar flavors. Young and tight, with a pleasant earthy edge and hints of fruit. Grows on you. Drinks well now, but put a bottle or two aside for future drinking." (02/1997)
Starting Bid: $77.00

Bid on this bottle 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)
