Complex, it achieves a sense of balance that will come into greater focus over time. At the moment, it offers kirsch notes and sizzling acidity around a core of peppery allspice and toasty brioche, but it will only continue to develop and evolve with age. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (10/2014)

2011 Evening Land "La Source" Seven Springs Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Evening Land "La Source" Seven Springs Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir (93RP, 92W&S, 90WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From an especially rocky, thin-soiled, basaltic ridge through this vineyard, the Evening Land 2011 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard La Source – of which there are 1,488 cases – offers a more texturally tender, buoyant, and ultimately elegant performance than its “regular” Seven Springs counterpart. Fresh cassis and elderberry are garlanded with bittersweetly perfumed gentian, lavender and iris, the fruit and flowers being beautifully set off on a silken palate against the sort of wet stone and forest floor backdrop already familiar from that “little sibling” bottling. The energy here comes out as luminosity and exhilarating vibrancy, and as this beauty matures it should acquire additional richness and complexity without that energy dimming. I suspect it will merit re-visiting through at least 2025. (DS)" (10/2013)

Lots of licorice, black currant, Chinese black tea, cedarwood and spice jump from the glass of this wine. It possesses lovely fruit, medium body and an elegant, pure, expressive mid-palate as well as finish. While fully mature, it should continue to drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (11/2013)

Its acidity, oak and fruit are all beautifully integrated. One of the few whites from the region to really offer terrific texture and depth, this gorgeous 2013 is full-bodied, layered and fresh, with classic precision and length on the finish.

This medium-bodied wine should drink nicely for 3-4 years. Under the Ramey label, David Ramey has always done a top-notch job with Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Syrah, although he rarely gets enough credit for the latter. (RP)" (03/2016)

Thieriot Vineyard, from the very old vineyard planted in 1990 with the Robert Young clone of Chardonnay. It was cropped at 1.5 tons of fruit per acre and aged in Louis Latour cooperage.

In 2012, Syrah plays a larger role than in both the 2010 and 2011, which is felt in the wine broad, expansive personality. This is going to be a fascinating Esprit to follow over the coming years.

Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Stock" Central Coast Syrah (98RP, 96VN).

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. (JD)" (08/2015)

Full-bodied and dense, with Montelena’s typical power, tannin and reserved nature, this is a big, rich, formidably endowed red that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. That in itself is atypical of this exuberant, flamboyant vintage. Given this cuvee’s past history, this 2007 should age for 30+ years. (RP) 94+ " (12/2010)

Bid on this magnum of 2012 Schrader "Old Sparky" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (OWC - 100RP) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another compelling, perfect wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky. This is Clone 4 and Clone 6, as well as Clone 337, blended together from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. For whatever reason, this wine seems to show more chocolate, espresso roast, barbecue smoke, dense blackberry and blueberry fruit and enormous body with not a touch of heaviness or astringency. This is a fabulous offering. It should drink well for 20-25 years. (RP)" (10/2014)

2014 Hundred Acre "Few and Far Between" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2014 Hundred Acre "Few and Far Between" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ((96-98RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014s also look sensational, with potential perfect scores for the 2014 Few and Far Between and the 2014 Ark, with the 2014 Kayli Morgan not far behind. These wines are still in cask and probably won’t be bottled until sometime in 2017. Some quick notes on them. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Few and Far Between is superb and not far off of the quality of the 2013. Slightly softer, and perhaps more dramatic and flamboyant at present because it is a barrel sample, it has staggering richness, great blue and black fruits intermixed with truffle, camphor, and sweet loamy soil and earthy nuances. The wine is full-bodied, gorgeously pure, rich and not showing any evidence of oak aging. (RP)" (10/2016)

Wonderful black fruit aromas introduce relatively big flavors of exceptional intensity buffered by lots of sève. Pure, classy and elegant with knockout length." (01/2002)

2011 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. About Abreu: "Growing up, Napa Valley was David Abreu's playground as well as his classroom. Born into a family of ranchers, he spent the better part of his youth working in Napa's original vineyards. Over time, David's sense of what makes a site stand out—why one vineyard makes great wine and another's is just good—was sharpened beyond the ordinary. Eventually, intuition and experience led him to four exceptional vineyard properties: Madrona Ranch, Cappella, Las Posadas, and Thorevilos. He planned and planted each one. And with an uncompromising—some might say insane—commitment to quality, he and his crew farm them to perfection. Alongside Brad Grimes, a chef turned winemaker, he whittles one hundred barrels down to just 12,000 bottles of single-site Cabernet blends. You could call it passion beyond reason. And you may be right."

Bid on this bottle of 1945 Vieux Chateau Certan, Pomerol ((98-100RP), 96JG, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted twice and rated highly each time, the 1945 is an exceptional winemaking effort in what can be a frightfully tannic vintage. It exhibits a dark, murky, plum color with little garnet at the edge. It also possesses a huge nose of smoked meats, black-raspberries, plums, licorice, and tar. Dense, chewy, and powerful, with gobs of tannin, and amazing fruit extraction, this full-throttle wine must be at its plateau of maturity, yet I see no reason it cannot last for two more decades.

Wine & Spirits: "The Foucault brothers took over their family’s estate in 1969 and continue to produce legendary Cabernet Franc. They farm organically and make their wines without adding yeast, without racking, fining or filtering. Their 2008 shows fine evolution, its rooty, rich flavors seemingly ready to drink when first poured, then gaining freshness over the course of a day. The wine’s silken texture and bright red fruit suggest there’s further evolution to come. Or decant it now for duck over farro and red cabbage." (04/2013)

2014 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this bottle of 2014 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100RP, 97JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, is the 2014 The Absurd, basically a choice of their finest barrels, or as winemaker and owner Benoit Touquette says, “The crème de la crème.” This is another perfect wine equaling their incredible 2013. Yet the 2014 is slightly more forward and showy, as many 2013s are just beginning to shut down. There are 250 cases of this majestic wine that has an opaque purple color, extraordinary nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry, creosote, charcoal, toast and spice. The wine has unbelievable fruit on the attack, midpalate and finish, compelling purity, texture and a finish of close to a full minute. It is (as advertised by the winery) a “showcase of the best of Napa Valley with the freedom of expression that results from no rules.” Drink now-2035. (RP)" (12/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black in color, the 2013 Syrah Seymour's Vineyard slowly unfurls with coaxing to reveal wonderfully pure, freshly crushed black cherries, black berries and black currants notes with underlying suggestions of cloves, espresso, chargrill and violets plus wafts of incense, sauteed herbs and chocolate box. The powerful, muscular, full-bodied palate continues on the theme of purity with incredible delineation, offering layers of black fruits and savory notions and a ripe, rounded tannins texture, finishing with epic length. 97+ (LPB)" (12/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Cayuse "God Only Knows" Walla Walla Valley Grenache (97RP, 94WS, 93VN, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 533 cases of the 2014 Grenache God Only Knows Armada Vineyard, and as always, it's an unknown blend that's dominated by Grenache (reportedly from vine cuttings from Rayas). It's fermented with just about 100% whole clusters in concrete and aged mostly in neutral puncheons and foudre, with one concrete egg. A bigger, richer wine than the No Girls cuvee, this beauty packs a punch in its black cherry, reduced strawberry, herbes de Provence and crushed violet aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, a supple, elegant style and fine tannin, this singular beauty will benefit from a year or three of cellaring and keep for 10-15 years. (JD)" (06/2017)

Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Pinot Noir comes mostly from the exposed ridges of the Pisoni Vineyard, which is unquestionably one of the gems in the appellation, as well as in all California. The 2015 is a more elegant, finesse driven example of this cuvee than normal and is a thrillingly complex, nuanced Pinot Noir I wish every reader could taste. Fermented with 20-25% whole clusters and aged in 60-65% new French oak, it offers a great bouquet of black raspberries, spring flowers, crushed violets, spice and subtle minerality. Medium to full-bodied, silky, and incredibly long, it's a world class Pinot Noir to drink over the coming decade. (JD)" (07/2017)

DoctorWine): "Despite the year being one that will not be remembered for it quality, this wine’s concentration, the producer’s trademark, is amazing. Its red color is unusually intense and light has difficulty penetrating it. The aroma is explosive and even a bit stupefying with its component of overripe marasca cherry under spirits, a prune full of texture and an unbridled balsamic aspect. Breathing brings this all out even further with embarrassing intensity. The mouthfeel is saturating, upheld by ferocious tannins and an unmatched fullness. The style is truly unique, after tasting his wines it is difficult to do justice to others." (04/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truly great stuff, this wine performed at a three-digit level both in the horizontal tasting of 2005s in Baltimore, as well as in Montreal at this mini-vertical. This sensational, opaque, bluish/purple wine offers up notes of vanillin, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, plus a touch of licorice. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. It is full-bodied, multidimensional and layered. The tannins are beautifully integrated but still present, and the wood, acidity, alcohol, etc., are all beautifully assimilated in this magnificent, majestic vintage of Angelus. It can be drunk now, but it is still an adolescent and that suggests it has at least another 25-35 years of longevity. (RP)" (08/2015)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2002 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93VN, 91CG, 91W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational 14,000-case cuvee that is one of the benchmarks for what Napa Valley is capable of achieving. Its dense purple color is followed by copious notes of smoky barbecue, creme de cassis, white chocolate, blackberries, charcoal and truffles. Full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with sweet tannins in the finish, this 2002 has not yet hit full maturity. Give it another 2-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades. I asked the winemaking team what the final blend was for the 2002 Private Reserve, and to the best of their recollection, the largest component was from Steinhauer Ranch (50%), followed by St. Helena Home Ranch (23%) and tiny percentages of Bancroft, Rancho del Oso, Chabot, Marston, and some Cabernet Franc from Howell Mountain.
