Bid on this bottle of 2000 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100JS, 99WE, 98RP, 98VN, 98WS, 96ST, 95W&S). James Suckling: "The nose is fresh, bright, and dense. With aromas of violets, minerals, spices, cool stones, mint, dark fruits, and plum skins, this is beautiful. Very much still a baby right now, it needs much more time. This is a wine for the next generation. Finesse and elegance, truly a wine that makes you contemplate life. This is not about power, there is really nothing like it. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon. Do not even think about touching this for another ten years, 2020. " (02/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (96RP, 94VN, 93WE, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Syrah Bionic Frog is another rocking Syrah from Christophe that does everything right. Creme de cassis, blackberry, smoked earth, toasted spice and violets emerge from the glass, and it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and brilliant length. Gaining more minerality with time in the glass, it will continue to flesh out nicely with another handful of years in the cellar, and have two decades of ultimate longevity. (JD)" (06/2014)

Shows how the most elaborate vineyard and winery practices can contribute to a near-perfect wine, even in a less heralded vintage. The flavors cascade in endless tiers, black currant, cherry, mocha, Indian pudding, oak and spice, all coming together in a minute-long finish. Magnificent. *Cellar Selection*" (11/2004)

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 2004 Bodegas Numanthia-Termes "Termes" Toro (94RP, 93ST, 92W&S, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Termes received malolactic fermentation in barrel and was aged for 16 months in one-year-old French barriques. Inky purple-colored, it emits a beautiful bouquet of scorched earth, graphite, wild blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a full-bodied, layered, concentrated, intensely flavored wine with exceptional balance and length. The tannins are well concealed by the opulent fruit. (JM)" (02/2007)

1990 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (98RP, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In terms of the brilliant complexity and nobility of the aromatics, scorched earth, black currants, plums, charcoal, cedar, and spices, the 1990 offers an aromatic explosion that is unparalleled. It is always fascinating to taste this wine next to the 1989, which is a monumental effort, but much more backward and denser, without the aromatic complexity of the 1990. The 1990 put on weight after bottling, and is currently rich, full-bodied, opulent, even flamboyant by Haut Brion’s standards. It is an incredible expression of a noble terroir in a top vintage. While it has been fully mature for a number of years, it does not reveal any bricking at the edge, and I suspect it will stay at this level for another 10-15 years ... but why wait? It is irresistible now. (RP)" (06/2009)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Weingut Keller Spätburgunder "FR" (Pinot Noir) Goldkapsel Trocken Auction (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Representing the contents of just three barriques (one of which was new) and headed for auction, Keller’s 2008 Spatburgunder trocken FR – from the Frauenberg – offers an accentuation of the bright juiciness that renders all three of his 2008 vintage Pinots memorable, and in addition a saline, saliva-inducing savor joins pit fruit, peat, and chalk accents to its succulent cherry and elderberry matrix. This marriage of richness and textural tenderness with refreshment and minerality should be worth following for at least a decade ... (DS)" (02/2011)

1962 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Bid on this bottle of 1962 d'Yquem, Sauternes (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience 1962 Bordeaux horizontal. Moderate Clear lucid gold with green tints. The nose is very elegant and well defined, touches of wet wool, honey, wood resin and barley sugar (a la Barsac). I wish it had more vigour and complexity, for it is rather overwhelmed by the Coutet and the Suduiraut. The palate is far better than the nose with a lovely creamy, harmonious texture with perfect acidity and balance. Citrus peel, fresh ginger, dried apricot, ginger and orange sorbet with noticeable residual sugar on the finish. This is probably an underrated Yquem given market prices, but the modest nose means I must temper my appraisal. (NM)" (11/2010)

2004 Jacquesson "Champs Cain" Avize Extra Brut Champagne
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Jacquesson "Champs Cain" Avize Extra Brut Champagne (96RP, 95VN, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From vines planted in 1962, the single-vineyard Jacquesson 2004 Extra Brut Avize Champ Cain leads with an utterly remarkable nose. A greenhouse-like profusion of leafing and flowering things is imposed over sea breeze, with jasmine; musky narcissus; nose-prickling spice as if from some exotic orchid; iodine-tinged toasted shrimp shells; and toasted grain all pungently present and anticipating the elusive complexity delivered on a caressingly polished yet consummately refreshing and almost ethereally delicate palate. Over time, the sense of creaminess and the refinement of bubbles became more evident, along with a contrasting impression of enhanced piquancy, suggesting hops and lentil sprouts, all in the context of remarkable poise and transparency to nuance. The endlessly fascinating finish remains infectiously juicy and subtly yet mouthwateringly sal

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*** Don't Miss - Outstanding *** Here too there is enough wood to notice on the notably ripe and fresh aromas of black cherry, plum, pungent earth and abundant sauvage scents. The big, rich and full-bodied flavors possess an overt muscularity along with plenty of power on the extract-rich, intense and very firmly structured finale. As it always is this is rustic and austere and will need a minimum of 10 years to arrive at its peak but 15 will be better. The domaine almost never misses with this wine and the 2013 is potentially great." (01/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine J-F Mugnier Musigny Grand Cru (94RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mugnier’s wines of the vintage, his 2007 Musigny exudes ripe, vanilla- and star anise-tinged black raspberry and cassis, underlain by clean, marrow-like meatiness. Already satiny in texture, yet buoyant, this finishes with dark-fruited, forest floor-inflected, palate-staining persistence yet a soothing, enveloping personality that is anything but palate-straining. Even though this is an unusually approachable example of its kind, few Burgundian Pinots of its vintage, I suspect, will justify the 15 or more years of glory that I would anticipate from this Musigny.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1987 Biondi Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. Monica Larner updates on the state of Biondi Santi in 2014: "Perhaps the most iconic image in Montalcino is that of the lanky Franco Biondi Santi walking, cane in hand, down the cypress-lined drive that leads to his beloved Il Greppo estate. It's painful to think he no longer exists in that tight corridor of shade between the trees. The Brunello pioneer died in April 2013, at 92 years of age. Today, the imposing figure who greets you past the tree line belongs to his son, Jacopo Biondi Santi. The legacy of this estate and the guardianship of Montalcino-s most prized wine tradition now rests squarely on his shoulders. "I'm not afraid to say it," Jacopo confides: "I'm daunted by the enormity of this responsibility.""

2007 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair La Romanée Grand Cru
Bid on this bottle of 2007 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair La Romanée Grand Cru (96JG, 95RP, 94VN, 93BH). John Gilman: "Louis-Michel Liger-Belair’s 2007 La Romanée is one of the wines of the vintage and is showing stunning aromatic and flavor complexity at age seven, but it is still emphatically a young wine and more patience will be very richly rewarded! The absolutely brilliant bouquet delivers an celestial blend of raspberries, a touch of blood orange, red plums, cinnamon, incipient notes of duck, a kaleidoscopic base of soil tones, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very light on its feet, with exquisite intensity of flavor, great complexity, a sappy core of fruit, great soil signature and great focus and grip on the tangy and modestly tannic finish. This wine is already very accessible and hard not to drink, but it has not yet developed its secondary layers of complexity and will be even better in another three or four years. A brilliant 2007!

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Insignia (their 40th vintage) is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This wine is aged 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels, and the production can vary from just over 10,000 cases to nearly 20,000 cases in a very abundant vintage. There were 12,300 cases produced in 2013, and this vintage of Insignia is certainly going to turn out to be one of the great ones. The wine offers a stunning inky blue/purple color, a gorgeous nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, pen ink, graphite, new saddle leather and barrique. The wine has fabulous concentration, a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel, and tremendous finish with moderate tannin. It’s interesting to note that the Phelps winemaking staff had been gradually reducing the amount of Merlot

It just seems that way because its generous aromas seemingly jump out of the glass, and the layered quality of those aromas reinforces the notion that this is top-notch Pinot. Its full and supple impressions at entry are followed by ripe, deep and deliciously fruity flavors of sweet red cherries, toasted bread, rich, creamy oak and hints of dried raspberries.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kicking off the 2011s and about as seductive and sexy as they come in the vintage, the 2011 Paderewski Vineyard is an eclectic blend of 34% Zinfandel, 31% Mourvedre, 16% Tempranillo, 10% Syrah and 9% Petite Sirah that comes from a warmer terroir of chalky, calcareous soils. Full-bodied, seamless and perfectly balanced, it offers brilliant aromas and flavors of black raspberry, rose petal, bramble and violets that are to die for. A big wine to be sure, yet it stays remarkably elegant, poised and fresh on the palate, with no hard edges and an approachable, utterly impossible-to-resist profile that keeps you pouring another glass.

1986 Joseph Phelps "Eisele" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 1986 Joseph Phelps "Eisele" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The youngest and most backward, and the most promising wine of the four 1986 wines in this segment, is the 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard. The dense purple color with no lightening or amber is followed by a classic Eisele nose of crushed stones/minerals, black-raspberries/currants, and spicy wood. Full-bodied, concentrated, and pure, yet very youthful, this wine could easily have passed for a 3-4 year old California Cabernet. Hefty and concentrated, with considerable tannin, it requires another 2-4 years of cellaring; it will last for 20 years." (08/1996)

1985 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (95ST, 95VN, 92RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium-deep, amber-edged red. Superripe aromas of blackcurrant, plum, cedar, game and truffle; at once less complex and less evolved than the '84. Large-scaled, dense and fat; bigger and broader than the '84, with a compelling gamey sweetness. Rather massive in the context of Monte Bello, and developing slowly. Finishes very long, with big but fine tannins that spread out to suffuse the palate. (ST)" (10/2000)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Justin "Trilateral" Paso Robles Rhone Blend. Justin puts their twist on the classic French Rhône blend (Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre); the Paso Robles Syrah imparts a rich intensity. Winery note: "Moderately full bodied, with fresh blackberry and red cherry fruit combined with smoky barrel spice on the entry leading to a more savory mid-palate showing leather, cracked pepper, and cured salumi notes. The finish is moderately long and fresh on the palate with just-ripe red and black fruit, cocoa, cedar, vanilla and smoky notes wrapped in perfectly balanced, grippy tannins."

Musky aromas of currant, plum, lavender, black olive and bitter chocolate. Good tangy flavors of sour cherry, currant, peppery herbs, spices and chocolatey oak. Doesn't offer quite the body of the 2012 version but there's plenty of flavor interest here. Finishes with licorice and spice notes and good lift. (ST)" (05/2014)

High-toned floral notes add lift and brightness throughout. Hints of sweet herbs and tobacco wrap around the finish. The Reuling is planted with the Calera clone and a suitcase clone from Vosne-Romanee, which in this vintage seems to give the wine an exotic, spiced dimension that is totally intriguing.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 is 100% Clone 6, came in at 14.7% alcohol, and was aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. It reveals a different character, with notes of charcoal and espresso roast, white chocolate, new saddle leather and a meaty, dense, full-bodied mouthfeel. This is spectacular and terrific stuff. After the RBS, this is probably the most evolved of these five cuvées, although I kept going back to the CCS, which has a hauntingly perfect bouquet. (RP)" (06/2015)

Highly complex nose combines black fruits, gibier, truffle, road tar, licorice and leather. Very intense and spicy, but still tightly wound, with a firm acid spine keeping the flavors under wraps. "Very interior wine today," notes Perrin. But one already senses the incipient complexity. Finishes with building tannins, a note of caramel and terrific persistence. This will need time.

1983 Palmer, Margaux
Bid on this bottle of 1983 Palmer, Margaux (98JS, 98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, this was the finest 1983 Château Palmer that I have encountered. The nose is ethereal with wonderful definition: mint-tinged red berry fruit, cedar, dried rose petals and very subtle acrid tang of a November bonfire. It is the definition and purity that is beguiling and yes, it is reminiscent of the 1961. The palate is beautifully balanced and lithe in the mouth. Like previous bottles, there is a Burgundy-like sensibility about this Palmer, sensual in the mouth with a crystalline finish that will have you reaching for the glass for another sip. Robert Parker stated that the 1983 was the best vintage following the epochal 1961 and I completely concur. This 1983 Palmer is probably at its peak now, although I have no doubt that it will continue to cruise at high altitude for many years. (NM)" (05/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1987 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There were 6,500 cases produced of the 1987 Dominus. It is one of the great wines of the vintage in a year when a handful of California producers made profound Cabernets (i.e., Robert Mondavi Reserve, Dunn Howell Mountain, and Chateau Montelena). The wine is beginning to shut down, but it still displays a rich ruby color and an intensely spicy, fragrant nose of toasty vanillin oak, cassis, and cedar. In the mouth, this medium to full-bodied wine displays considerable tannins, fine integrated acidity, and an opulent, rich, spicy finish. (RP)" (10/1993)

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there is also a trace of reduction but it is only a background element and the very cool, elegant, pure and airy wild red berry and wet stone aromas can easily be appreciated. The equally, cool, intense and vibrant medium-bodied flavors are brimming with both dry extract as well as a fine minerality before culminating in a balanced, focused and linear finish. As examples of Chambertin go, this is a lighter example but it embodies that wonderful quality of power without weight and while the wine's evolution is very backward at present, it seems relatively clear that this is destined to be most impressive as it should flesh out and add weight in bottle."
