98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This single vineyard, one of the steepest in Champagne, produces fabulous wines. Richness restrained by the minerality from the terroir is balanced by the structured Pinot Noir fruits that bring touches of toast, spice and white fruits. Drink through 2025 at least. (RV) 12/2021" (12/2021) 97 points James Suckling: "Aromas of bread dough, mandarin, strawberry, raspberry and light dry earth follow through to a full body with lightly candied fruit, phenolic tension and a clear, bright finish. Mineral. Pure. Dry and layered at t...

2012 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
97 points Decanter: "Soft and juicy with flattering, bright red fruits. The alcohol is showing through just a little bit but it's countered by precise acidity. Starting to show really nicely when tasted in 2019, taking on cedar and tobacco leaf. This is a happy, juicy style, full of life - flamboyant but stylish. (MW)" (10/2019) 97 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner, with a gorgeous cassis aroma that soars from the glass, reinforced by a core of cassis, cherry and plum pâte de fruit, hoisin sauce, warm ganache and well-roasted apple wood notes. Hefty, b...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Pure perfection in Syrah, the 2012 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the pure granite soils of the Les Bessards lieu-dit and was brought up in around 30-35% new demi-muids. This blockbuster yet magical wine offers everything: incredible aromatics, huge richness and intensity, no sensation of weight or heaviness, and a finish that just goes on and on. With lots of sweet dark cassis and raspberry fruit, it has an almost Méal-like sexiness yet shows more and more minerality as well as tannins on the finish. It’s a quintessential, awes...

93 points Vinous: "(vinified with 100% whole clusters; from vines that were planted in 1911 and 1913): Saturated ruby. Ripe dark berries, candied plum and violet oil on the highly perfumed mineral- and smoke-accented nose. Supple and broad, offering palate-staining black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of white pepper. Finishes very long, spicy and floral, leaving a gently sweet blue fruit note behind. (JR)" (02/2015) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Balthazar blends this wine from two vineyards, one of centenary vines he bought from his un...

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Generous if not dominant wood serve as a not-so-subtle backdrop to the intensely sauvage and spicy red currant, cassis, plum and pungently earth aromas. The attractively textured and mouth coating large-scaled flavors enjoy copious amounts of palate coating and tannin-buffering dry extract along with plenty of minerality that adds lift to the imposingly structured finish. This massive effort is very definitely old school and there will be no point in opening this before at least a decade of aging has occurred. *Do...

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is similar to the regular cuvée from a compositional standpoint but the fruit is denser, slightly riper and more complex as well. The very concentrated broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent concentration as the copious dry extract both coats the palate and buffers the extremely firm tannic spine on the explosively long but impeccably well-balanced finish. This is distinctly old school in style and will require extended cellaring to arrive at its peak. I would not recommend buying this ultra-serious...

97 points James Suckling: "Berry, smoke, violet and sandalwood aromas follow through to a full, layered palate that shows super polished tannins that are caressing and long. It’s tight and very long. Give it two or three years to soften. Drink after 2023. " (08/2021) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Único is released 10 years after the harvest. They produced it with the grapes from 40 of the 210 hectares of vineyards they have, with a total of 55 separate plots and 19 different soils. It's mostly 95% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and 5% Ca...

92 points James Suckling: "Crazy nose of red licorice, dark fruits and walnuts. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. This is rich and structured. Try in 2017." (02/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 La Gaffeliere comes across as quite compact today, although the underlying material appears promising. The 20% Cabernet Franc is evident, especially in the wines tannic profile. Hints of iron, smoke and leather open up with time in the glass, but the 2012 is going to need at least a few more years in bottle. Still, there is plenty to look forward to....

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 M. Chapoutier "Le Méal" Ermitage Blanc (97RP, 96WS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly more reserved now than on release, the 2012 Ermitage le Meal Blanc offers tons of honeyed minerality, caramelized peach, toasted bread and liquid rock-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rich, vibrant and with terrific acidity, it's a sensational white that will have 3-4 decades of life. (JD)" (09/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99JD, 99RP, 98JS, 97VN, 95DC, 95WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With the lowest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in of any of the wines from this vertical, the 2012 final blend was 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Production across the board in 2012 was high, and reflected in the 3, 977 cases made at Spottswoode. This is a dramatic, flamboyant, modern-day version of the 2002. Dramatic blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with camphor, charcoal, white flowers and foresty notes all emerge from the impressive aromatics that soar from the glass. The intense, explosively rich, full-bodied palate is layered with beautiful purity, stunningly sweet, silky tannins and terrific presence and complexity. This is a gorgeous wine on a relatively fast evolutionary track, I suspect, but certainly it has 30 years of upside left. (RP)" (08/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Louis Jadot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((91-94BH), (90-92VN)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A relatively elegant nose releases soft scents of various red berries, earth, floral and sauvage nuances that are highlighted by gentle wood notes. There is excellent volume to the notably rich and velvet-textured broad-shouldered flavors that are supported by phenolically mature and quite firm tannins on the mouth coating and attractively well-balanced finish. Drink: 2027+" (04/2014)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97JD, 97JS, 96RP, 96VN, 95CG, 95WE, 93WS, 92W&S). James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, mineral and bark. Complex nose. Full body plus super integrated tannins with superb balance and depth. Coffee and chocolate too. Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage. A long life ahead of it. " (11/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Stein" Central Coast Grenache (97RP, (95-97VN)). Vinous: "The 2012 Grenache Stein is incredibly refined, silky and pure, with bright red and blue-hued fruits. Today, the flavors are primary, so readers will have to be patient get the full breadth of aromas, flavors and textures. The Stein is a decidedly feminine, gracious Grenache that impresses for its textural beauty and nuance. I imagine it will provide a long and broad drinking window of pure pleasure over the next 15-20 years. This is an absolutely gorgeous wine from Sine Qua Non. The final blend is 76% Grenache, 16% Syrah and 8% Mourvèdre; 53% from Eleven Confessions, 29% from Cumulus, 9% The Third Twin and 9% Bien Nacido. The 2012 was done with 29% whole clusters and will spend around 22 months in French oak (14%) prior to its scheduled bottling this summer. (AG)" (08/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Lail "J. Daniel Cuvée" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 100RP, 96JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Absolutely perfect and one of the monumental wines of my long tasting trip in Napa is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée. I didn’t see this from barrel last year. Aged 20 months in 75% new French oak and representing 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from three vineyard sources: one in Calistoga, one in Oakville and one in Howell Mountain. Robin Lail and winemaker Philippe Melka hit pay dirt with a wine that has an inky purple color, an almost amazing bouquet that reminded me of 1989 Chateau Montrose when it was young. Sweet almost truffle-infused earth, graphite, forest floor, blackcurrant and black cherry notes are followed by a full-bodied wine with a hint of mocha and licorice. (RP)" (10/2014)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2012 Calera "Jensen Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (96RP, 96VN, 94WE), 1-bottle of 2012 Calera "Mills Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (96RP, 93VN, 92WE), 1-bottle of 2012 Calera "Reed Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (94VN, 93WE, 91RP, 91WS), and 1-bottle of 2012 Calera "Ryan Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (94RP, 93VN, 93WE, 93WS). Of the 2012 Calera "Jensen Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir, Vinous writes: "A racy, voluptuous wine, the 2012 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard shows the radiance of the vintage. Sweet red cherries, kirsch, mint, wild flowers and plums flesh out in an open-knit, intense wine built on texture. The 2012 remains quite primary. It can be enjoyed today, but will be even better in another few years, once the aromatics develop more fully and some of the baby fat drops off. (AG)" (09/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Schrader "RBS - Beckstoffer To Kalon" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96VN, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor. This is a killer, full-bodied, super-duper, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20 years. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Lewis Cellars "Alec's Blend" Napa Valley Red Blend (93WS, 90CG). Wine Spectator: "There’s lots to admire in this richly flavored effort, offering tiers of graphite, mocha, dark berry, toasty oak and savory notes. Maintains a bold profile on the long and persistent finish, and promises to develop in the future. Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot. Drink now through 2026. (JL)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (98VN, 96JS, 96RP, 94DC, 94WS). Vinous: "The 2012 Monte Bello is one of the most harmonious young Monte Bellos I can remember tasting. Seamless and voluptuous through to the finish, the 2012 is showing beautifully today. Raspberry jam, pomegranate, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. A wine with a distinctly red-hued profile, silky tannins, no hard edges and exceptional overall balance, the 2012 Monte Bello is simply magnificent. The 2012 is racy but also impeccably balanced throughout, with shades of the 2001 that come through from time to time. I won't be surprised if the 2013 and 2014 both eventually surpass it, but there is no denying that the 2012 is simply stunning today. This is one of the best showings yet for the 2012.

Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge (98DC, 96JD, (94-95VN), 95WS). Decanter: "There's a new-leather note to the blackberry fruit. It's full-bodied, exceptionally smooth on your tongue. Great concentration but also great freshness. Acidity is perfectly balanced, this is a Hermitage of great liveliness, pep and freshness. Very long finish. The alcohol isn't low, but it's balanced. Long finish. An exceptional wine in the making. (MW)" (09/2021)
Starting Bid: $230.00

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)
Starting Bid: $121.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Au Sommet Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon (94VN, 92JS, 90WS). Vinous: "The 2012 Au Sommet Elev 2100 Ft. captures all the radiance of the vintage in its ample, explosive personality. Sweet red cherries, spices, new leather and mocha all flesh out as this juicy, silky Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its alluring personality. Heidi Barrett has largely tamed the Atlas Peak tannins and what comes through is a racy, voluptuous Cabernet that will be nearly impossible to resist in its youth. Today, it is particularly expressive. (AG)" (09/2015)
Starting Bid: $222.00

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: $525.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Darioush "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95WE, 91CG, 90WS). Wine Enthusiast: "Smoky leather and cigar make for a formidable entry on the nose before huge, layered tannins rise to the fore. A balance of acidity and brightness lurks beneath the weight, rounded by succulent blackberry and black cherry. *Top 100 wines of 2015, Cellar Selection* (VB)" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Paul Hobbs "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 94JS, 93VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane moves more toward the wet rock, blueberry, raspberry fruit spectrum, but still stays dark and foreboding, very concentrated and full-bodied. The great terroir comes through and the wine is distinctive, singular, opulent and rich. Another fabulous success from Paul Hobbs and one more showcase wine for this great vineyard. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (98JS, 96JD, 95DC, 95RP, 95VN, 93WS). James Suckling: "Stones and walnuts with blackberries and blueberries. A full-bodied, super-refined and polished wine that culminates in a racy and refined finish. Extremely long and exciting. Great wine." (02/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Lewis Cellars "Mason's" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91CG, 91WS). Wine Spectator: "FA classy effort, combining toasty oak with an elegant mix of cedar, dark berry, plum and cherry flavors, gaining depth and holding focus on the long, lingering finish. Should improve with time. (JL)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru (96JG, (94-96RP), 96VN, 95BH, 93ST). Vinous: "Dujac's 2012 Clos de La Roche bristles with palpable energy and intensity. One of the more polished wines in the range, the Clos de la Roche is all about saline-infused energy and brilliance today. I very much like the precision here, but time has shown that the Clos de la Roche only starts to blossom with considerable bottle age. Today, the layers of dimension are present, but also compacted. In a few years, the 2012 will be truly magical. (AG)" (04/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Futo Oakville Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 99RP, 96VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The original wine from the Oakville Estate Vineyard is a relatively small cuvée of 546 cases. The 2012 Proprietary Red Estate is a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. This is a drop-dead beautiful wine with an absolutely extraordinary nose of white flowers, blueberries, blackcurrants, licorice and camphor. Stunning forest floor notes also make an appearance in this ripe, full-bodied, opulent wine that is begging to be given a three-digit score. The silkiness of the tannins and the stunning purity of fruit of this unfined and unfiltered wine is simply breathtaking. This is just an incredible effort to drink now or over the next 30+ years. (RP)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $720.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Buoncristiani Family Winery "O.P.C." Napa Valley Red Blend (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend O.P.C. (Ol’ Pa’s Cuvée) is an intriguing blend of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 22% Merlot and 16% Malbec. Obviously, Papa Buoncristiani had a very good palate. Dense ruby/purple-hued with more meat, underbrush and barbecue notes than its siblings, it is fleshy and succulent with sweet tannins and a full-bodied mouthfeel. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2012 Domaine Drouhin "Laurène" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (OWC - 93DC, 93JG, 93VN, 92BH, 92RP, 92W&S, 92WS) in original wood. Vinous: "Bright ruby. Heady red and dark fruit liqueur, candied rose, allspice and woodsmoke scents show excellent clarity and a complicating hint of licorice. Palate-staining blackberry and spicecake flavors open nicely in the middle palate, picking up floral pastille and cola nuances and a hint of black tea. Rich and broad but energetic too, finishing with powerful spicy thrust and velvety tannins. (JR)" (07/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Darioush "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Franc (94WE). Wine Enthusiast: "This is a gorgeously luxurious wine, vibrant and alive in blackberry and raspberry, a savory lining of red currant providing its edge. The big tannin presence speaks to cellaring, through 2022, but a decant should help, too, allowing the herbal and fruit components to come into balance with its powerful density. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (93JS). James Suckling: "Mellow red cherry and sweet tobacco aromas with autumnal forest fragrances, leading to a palate that has ripe dark cherry fruit flavors. A smooth fleshy finish. " (01/2018)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Paul Hobbs "Katherine Lindsay Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (96WE, 94RP, 94VN, 92ST, 92WS, 91CG). Wine Enthusiast: "Still tight, and expertly crafted and structured, this single-vineyard estate wine is meticulous in velvety, plush texture, completely seductive at every angle. Rich red cherry, pomegranate and vanilla improvise against one another without ever missing a beat, finishing in fully integrated flavor. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (11/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Signorello "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91RP, 90WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a blend of 93.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.5% Cabernet Franc from the estate vineyards on the Silverado Trail, south of Stags Leap. Made in a good structural style with plenty of barrique in the background as well as lots of blackcurrant, licorice, new saddle leather and spice characteristics, this tastes like a Cabernet Sauvignon made by someone of Italian origin. I say that because of its tannic structure and spice. This serious, full-bodied, concentrated 2012 will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for two decades. (RP) 91+" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2012 Calera "de Villiers Vineyard" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (95RP, 93WE, 92VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2012 Pinot Noir de Villiers. It's a beautifully complete, balanced and satisfying Pinot Noir that does everything right. Giving up tons of sweet black raspberry and strawberry fruits, spice-box, dried flowers and potpourri characteristics, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and seamless, with a ripe, supple texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. While there's more than enough fruit to keep this enjoyable now, there's some solid tannin and depth in there as well, so it will age. (JD)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Paul Hobbs "Beckstoffer To Kalon" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (97DC, 97RP, 96VN, 95JS, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of the three Beckstoffer Vineyards, it’s pretty much a joyride as to which one readers may prefer. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard (readers may remember the 2002 merited a 100-point score) has a beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit note, a hint of incense, charcoal, an opaque purple color, full-bodied opulence and again that first-growth quality, richness, complexity and intensity. I’m not sure this is as compelling as the 2002, but it’s not far away. This is a magnificent, multi-dimensional, skyscraper-like Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years. From one of Northern California’s most accomplished and respected wine consultants and producers, the 2012s and 2013s will create high expectations, and readers are unlikely to be disappointed by Paul Hobbs and his team.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Joseph Phelps "Pastorale Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (93RP, 93WE, 92ST, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even deeper than the Freestone Vineyards Pinot is the 2012 Pinot Noir Pastorale Vineyard (under 14% alcohol). Its dense ruby hue is followed by a beautiful floral element. Readers will adore the black cherry, plym, clove-infused fruit and relatively full-bodied texture. This is the well-researched and well-funded Joseph Phelps project eight miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the western frontier of the Sonoma Coast. In pursuit of great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Phelps planted his vineyards in the Goldridge soils with a cool, windy climate. (RP)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Hall "Kathryn Hall" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Kathryn Hall is largely sourced from their Sacrashe Vineyard. The color is dense ruby/purple. The wine is very young, and less evolved than many of its peers, but bursting with potential. Lots of blueberry and black raspberry fruit with a hint of mocha and background oak are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, absolutely spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a long-distance runner, although not so much because of the tannic structure, because the fruit seems younger and more primary than some of its siblings. Nevertheless, it is loaded with potential promise, and as Kathryn Hall says so frequently, 'Magic.' This full-bodied, classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa should hit its prime in 4-5 years and last at least two decades or more. (RP) 97+" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $247.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Robert Mondavi "To Kalon Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon". This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the famed To Kalon Vineyard. Vineyard notes from the winery: "When Robert Mondavi chose the To Kalon Vineyard as the home for his new winery in 1966 he remarked that 'It was a vineyard with a distinguished history and a magical nature. Ideal soils, sunlight, and rain—to my eye, the vineyard was a treasure.' Those sentiments were re-confirmed when the To Kalon Vineyard was named ‘Vineyard of the Year’ by the California State Farm Bureau, and the site continues to hold a special grand cru status in the Napa Valley. The To Kalon Vineyard lies in west Oakville where the low fertility, well-drained soils combine with optimal sun exposure to yield rich, complex flavors and impeccable fruit maturity."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Rochioli "Three Corner" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir ((94-96RP), 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a 3.5-acre parcel, the 2012 Pinot Noir Three Corners is staggering. A phenomenal bouquet of kirsch, black raspberries, black currants, graphite and lavender soars from the glass of this full-bodied, opulent, stunningly rich Pinot. Most knowledgeable people in the wine world have enormous respect for the integrity, honesty and exceptionally high quality of the wines emanating from the Rochioli Vineyards in the Russian River area.

Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie (100RP, 98WS, 97JS, 96DC, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The utterly perfect 2012 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is the star of three single vineyards in 2012. Possessing an off-the-charts sexiness in its layered, concentrated and full-bodied style, it has a wealth of fruit, ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and pedal-to-the-metal notes of black fruits, scorched earth, caramelized meats and crushed rocks. While this cuvée normally needs a decade to become drinkable, there’s a sweetness of fruit here that allows it to offer incredible pleasure even today. Nevertheless, give bottles 5-6 years and enjoy over the following three decades. (JD)" (12/2016)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90DC). Decanter: "Though considered a rich, exceptional vintage from the beginning, many wines now taste soft and mushy. Not this one - it has verve and an almost volcanic character along with bright red fruit notes and a long finish. Duncan puts its precision down to their adoption of berry sensory analysis. Like other ripe vintages, the sweetness of the fruit is almost too much. (EM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99RP, 97JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Las Posadas Proprietary Red is a massive fruit bomb from that high-elevation vineyard. Forest floor, floral notes, lead pencil shavings, licorice, fruitcake, cedar wood and oodles of black fruits soar from the glass and from the palate of this full-bodied, majestic, multi-layered wine. Like most 2012s, it is really strutting it’s stuff. It is still obviously young, but dramatic and flamboyant. This sensational wine should age effortlessly for 25-30+ years. Drink through 2045. (RP)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $290.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Marie et Pierre Benetiere "Cordeloux" Côte-Rôtie (91VN). Vinous: "Bright purple. Ripe dark berry and violet aromas are lifted and sharpened by notes of cracked pepper and smoky minerals. On the palate, gently sweet, deep black and blue fruit flavors pick up energy and spiciness with aeration. Finishes on a gently tannic note, with strong smoky persistence. (JR)" (02/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Keller Westhofener Kirchspiel Riesling Grosses Gewächs (dry) Rheinhessen (95JG, 92VN). John Gilman: "Klaus-Peter Keller’s old vines in the Kirchspiel will celebrate their fiftieth birthdays in 2014, so this parcel is really at the top of its game at the present time and this brilliant 2012er may well be the greatest example I have yet tasted from Klaus-Peter. The flawlessly ripe and pure nose soars from the glass in a blend of pink grapefruit, orange, a gentle base of wild yeasts, stunning complex minerality, a touch of petrol, citrus zest and lemon blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and seamless, with a superb core of fruit, dazzling complexity, ripe acids and stunning focus and grip on the very, very long and pinpoint finish. Just a brilliant bottle of dry Riesling! 95+" (03/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1, 580 cases of the 2012 James Berry Vineyard and it reminds me of the 2009 Janasse Chaupin (which is one of Justin’s favorite wines). Incorporating more Mourvèdre than normal, it’s made from 43% Grenache, 29% Mourvèdre, 18% Syrah and 10% Counoise that’s aged in a combination of concrete and barrel. Rock star stuff, with fabulous black raspberry, cassis, spring flowers and charred meat aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays lively, incredibly pure and elegant, with lots of fine tannin emerging on the finish. (JD) 97+" (08/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95DC, 93WE, 93WS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 reveals more oak on the nose, but is a much deeper, richer, fuller wine than the S.L.V. Dense ruby/purple to the rim, beautiful blackberry and cassis fruit, cedar wood, toast and earth jump from the glass. Full-bodied and layered, but with nothing out of balance, this is probably the strongest Cask 23 since the glory years of the mid-80s. (RP)" (12/2015)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Turley "Estate" Napa Valley Zinfandel ((91-93RP), 93VN). Vinous: "Savory overtones meld into dark red stone fruits, tobacco, menthol, pine and licorice in the 2012 Zinfandel Turley Estate. This is one of the more feminine, gracious wines in the range. The fruit is pliant and supple throughout, which gives the 2012 much of its near-term appeal. Savory herb and floral notes are laced into the finish. (AG)" (12/2014)
