Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 DuMol "Aidan" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (95RP, 92CG, 92ST). Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Aidan Wildrose Vineyard is layered with sweet rose petals, new leather, licorice, sweet herbs and dark raspberries. It shows tremendous richness, power and grace in a refined style that is highly appealing. Floral notes reappear to frame the close. This is a slightly brighter wine than the Eoin. (AG)" (02/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2010 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac (95JS, 94RP, 93WS, 92WE, 91JG, 90ST) and 1-bottle of 2010 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac (95JS, 94RP, 93WS, 92WE, 91JG, 90ST). Of the 2010 Carruades de Lafite, Pauillac, James Suckling writes: "This smells like a bouquet of flowers with blueberries and currants and spices. Full body, yet agile and refined. So fine and pretty. It's balanced and in harmony. Savory. A smoky, decadent and meat undertone." (11/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg Grand Cru (96JS, 96RP, 96VN, 94BH, 94JG). Vinous: "The 1990 Richebourg Grand Cru is a wine that I have been fortunate enough to taste three times before. It has a “spherical” nose, if you can picture that, and inside the sphere is copious red fruit laced with hints of traditional Japanese green tea, undergrowth and ferrous scents, as if part of this Richebourg was forged by a blacksmith. The palate is, as always, hugely powerful and yet paradoxically refined, with a smoothness that makes you feel giddy. It builds and builds in the mouth, revealing incredible volume toward the bravura finish. Immense. (NM)" (11/2017)
Starting Bid: $3,250.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2004 Nicolas Potel Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Gaudichots" (90BH, 90ST). Burghound: "This mature and overtly spicy effort displayed virtually none of the herbal character that many 2004s did after they were first bottled, in fact to the contrary the nose is really quite pretty. There is good richness to the detailed and stony middle weight flavors that display the barest hint of rusticity on the delicious and dusty finish. This was served blind and I guessed a 1er from the Vosne section of Nuits St. Georges so that suggests the '04 Gaudichots is showing its underlying terroir reasonably well. Note that for my taste this is drinking well now and there is no particular reason to refrain from drinking it if you are in the mood!" (01/2015)
Starting Bid: $1,000.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (95VN, 94RP). Vinous: "Deceptively medium in body, the 2014 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard packs a real punch. Succulent red cherry, rose petal, lavender and violet are all pushed forward, but it is the wine's inner sweetness and aromatics that stand out. Today, the KV comes across as very restrained, with bright acids and fabulous balance. A rush of sweet red cherry, blueberry and pomegranate leave a lasting impression. The 2014 is going to need a bit of time in bottle to unwind, but it is superb. (AG) 95+" (03/2017)
Starting Bid: $70.00

Bid on this bottle of 1999 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Cuvée Duvault-Blochet" (93VN, 92BH, 90ST). Vinous: "The 1999 Vosne-Romané 1er Cru Duvault-Blochet, the debut release in the modern era, was beginning to show some signs of bricking on the rim. The bouquet is a treat: decayed red berry fruit, sage and peppermint, just a soupçon of wild fennel all at the liminal point as primary tips into secondary aromas. The palate is soft and mellow on the entry with a subtle meaty/dried blood quality, fine tannin and well judged acidity that keeps this linear and focused. There is just a pinch of spice on the finish that strangely brought to mind more Chambolle than Vosne-Romanée, not that I am complaining. Tasted at the 1999 DRC dinner. (NM)" (04/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2020 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (OWC - (96-98VN), (96-97JS), (94-96JD), (93-95RP)) in original wood. Vinous: "Glass-staining purple. Assertively perfumed cassis, cherry liqueur, fruitcake and floral aromas take on espresso, olive and smoky bacon accents with aeration. Juicy, chewy and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed, alluringly sweet black and blue fruit preserve, floral pastille, licorice and mocha flavors that become deeper and spicier as the wine slowly stretches out. The floral and mineral notes repeat emphatically on a wonderfully long, juicy and mineral-dominated finish that's framed by building, well-wrought tannins. (JR)" (12/2022)
Starting Bid: $840.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Morlet "Les Petits Morlet" Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc (92RP). Wine Advocate: "This is Morlet’s first vintage of their “second” Sauvignon Blanc label, produced from the barrels that didn’t make the cut for the final blend of La Proportion Doree. The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Les Petits Morlet is composed of Sauvignon Blanc (85%) from the same vineyard as La Proportion Doree with a little Semillon (15%). It gives up scents of ripe peaches, green apples and lemon curd with hints of musk perfume, honeycomb and bouquet garni. Medium-bodied, the palate is filled with creamy-textured apple and stone fruit flavors and loads of herbal accents, finishing with great length and bags of freshness. (LPB)" (12/2019)

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot in original wood; including 5-bottles of 2017 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (97JS, 97VN, 96DC, 96JD, 96RP, 94WS) and 1-bottle of 2017 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Solare - Artist Label" (Ornellaia) Bolgheri Superiore. Of the 2017 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore, Vinous writes: "A stunning wine, the 2017 Ornellaia offers a captivating interplay of richness and energy. Picking early was the key. Young vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc were harvested in August for the first time ever. In the glass, the 2017 offers up an enticing mélange of mocha, cedar, tobacco and licorice, with soft curves that add to its sensuality and allure. The 2017 is sumptuous and racy, as Ornellaias from warmer years tend to be, but it is not at all heavy or overdone. In a word: superb! (AG)" (03/2020)
Starting Bid: $850.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Trediberri Barolo (94VN, 93JS, 93RP). Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo is a powerful, deep wine that is going to need time to soften and further open up. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, dried herbs and menthol infuse the 2016 with notable aromatic depth as well as a palpable sense of brooding, virile intensity to match its classically built, mid-weight structure. This is an especially potent vintage for the straight Barolo, and there is clearly so much going on in the glass; it is a superb wine in the making. The Barolo is a blend of 80% Berri and 20% Rocche dell'Annunziata. (AG)" (02/2020)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2018 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 100JD, 100JS, 99RP, 98VN, 97DC, 97WS) in original wood. James Suckling: "This is incredible on the nose, offering hot stones, blackcurrants, iodine and wet earth. Full-bodied with a tight center palate, then it opens with a tannin structure that is weightless and spreads across the palate. Totally integrated on the palate. This is a magic-carpet wine. Really incredible. One of the reference points for the vintage. Drinkable now and please try a bottle, but it’s one for the cellar." (05/2021)
Starting Bid: $1,500.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2019 Sine Qua Non "Distenta I" California Grenache (99JD, 99RP). Wine Advocate: "Deep ruby-purple in color, it explodes with scents of crushed blackberries and blueberries, tar, coffee beans, cracked pepper and thyme. The full-bodied palate has a frame of grainy tannins, seamless acidity and layer after layer of spicy and floral fruit. It has a latency that suggests it will continue to develop for many years in bottle. 1, 536 cases and 600 magnums will be released in the spring of 2022. This 2019 is made almost entirely from estate fruit—just 15% comes from the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley. The rest of the fruit comes from estate vineyards The Third Twin (39%), Eleven Confessions (32%), Cumulus (11%) and Molly Aïda (3%). (EB)" (05/2022)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Sanguis "Luminous Flux" Santa Ynez Red Blend (92VN). Vinous: "The 2012 Luminous Flux, an unusual Cabernet Franc/Grenache blend, is beautifully layered in the glass, with exotic scents of mocha, dark spice, black cherry, plum, rose petal and new leather. Even with its considerable intensity, the 2012 offers notable balance and overall harmony in this style. (AG)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Bruno Giacosa "Santo Stefano di Nieve" Barbaresco Riserva (97VN, 96RP). Vinous: "The second night of this vertical gets started in grand style. Bruno Giacosa’s 1990 Barbaresco Riserva Santo Stefano plays true to type. Powerful in the glass, with the soft contours and glycerin richness of a warm vintage, the 1990 possesses superb pedigree from the very first taste. (AG)" (03/2017)
Starting Bid: $995.00

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2015 Aril Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (93VN). Vinous: Bottled shortly before this tasting, Aril's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, unctuous and enveloping. Black cherry, chocolate, plum, licorice and spice are all kicked up in this flamboyant, dense Cabernet Sauvignon. Although it is naturally very young, the 2015 is also quite promising. (AG) 93+ (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Dana "Helms Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 100JS, 97RP, 95VN) in original wood. James Suckling: "Unique aromas of citrus fruit such as tangerines and oranges which combine with plums, black cherries, and blackcurrants. Lemon rind, too. Full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins that give the wine a precise and focused finish that lasts for minutes. Laser-guided. A savory and subtle, minerally finish. This redefines the greatness of Napa Valley wine and California." (09/2016)
Starting Bid: $900.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2019 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 98JS, 98RP, 98VN, 96JD, 96WS) in original wood. Vinous: "The 2019 Dominus is shockingly primary. A wine of tremendous density and power, the 2019 is also a wine for readers who can be patient, as it won't be ready to drink for another 10-15 years! Dark fruit, leather, tobacco, incense, dried herbs and scorched earth lend striking complexity. The 2019 is a huge wine that needs time to come into its own. This is impressive, to say the least. (AG) 98+" (02/2023)
Starting Bid: $1,350.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Kistler "Laguna Ridge Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Vinous writes: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Laguna Ridge is sweet, floral and lifted, all qualities that work beautifully to temper the natural intensity of the year. Succulent red berry, mint, spice, licorice and pomegranate give the Laguna Ridge striking freshness and nuance. Next to the bigger Cuvée Natalie, the Laguna Ridge is brighter, more aromatic and also more restrained, although, it, too, is certainty not lacking in intensity. Laguna Ridge is the only site in this range from which Kistler makes both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. (AG)" (05/2019)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 ForeFront (Pine Ridge) Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. From the folks at Pine Ridge, ForeFront sources from diverse vineyards in California and Oregon: "This modern slant on traditional winemaking allows us to create unusually luscious, approachable and intriguing wines. Wines that appeal to sophisticated wine drinkers. Wines that deliver the quality that Pine Ridge offers, at an attractive, everyday value."

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Huber-Verdereau Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets. Wine Advocate: "While the corresponding Robardelles received 15% new barriques, the Huber-Verdereau 2006 Volnay Fremiet received none. Ripe purple plum and cherry with the invigorating tartness of their skins and bitterness of their pits mingle with Pommard-like suggestions of peat and meat stock reduction. (DS)" (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 97WS, 96ST). Wine Advocate: "The best bottle of this I've ever had, the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve was utter perfection on this occasion. Made from a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre that was raised mostly in demi-muids, it exhibits awesome notes of blackberry, licorice, smoked herbs, graphite and tinges of minerality. Decadent, massively full-bodied and with sweet tannin, this thrilling Châteauneuf is hard to resist now, yet should continue to knock it out of the park for another decade or more. (JD)" (02/2015)
Starting Bid: $690.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 d'Yquem, Sauternes (98DC, 98RP, 95WS, 94JA, 94ST). Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep golden colored, the 1990 d'Yquem opens with unabashed opulence, giving expressive notes of dried apricots, toffee, candied walnut, tree bark and sandalwood with nuances of preserved mandarin peel, lemongrass and fallen leaves. The palate is entering that stage where it still has bags of fruit and yet appears quite dry, with a lively line contributing jaw-dropping tension and finishing with epically long-lingering honey nut and earth-inspired notes. Pure. Hedonism. The multilayered intensity perhaps makes this appear a much bigger, sweeter Yquem than it is, and yet it possesses a relatively modest 12.7% alcohol and 126 grams per liter of residual sugar with 3.9 grams per liter of total acidity (H2SO4). Well into its ideal drinking window, there is no real rush to drink this beauty, as it should remain suspended at the heavenly plateau for another 25+ years. (LPB)" (08/2019)
Starting Bid: $900.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Piranha Waterdance" California Syrah (100RP, 99JD, (95-97VN), 94WS). Wine Advocate: "Blended of 81% Syrah, 8% Petite Sirah, 6% Mourvèdre, 4% Touriga Nacional and 1% Graciano, sourced from 34% The Third Twin, 35% Eleven Confessions and 31% Cumulus (all estate vineyards), the provocative, inky purple colored 2014 Syrah Piranha Waterdance was made using 26% whole cluster and hits the scent scene with exuberant, pure crème de cassis, blackberry cordial and blueberry coulis notes with hints of espresso, licorice, garrigue and menthol, plus a gorgeous underlying perfume of red roses. The full-bodied palate is oh-so-elegant and pretty, revealing very finely pixelated tannins that beautifully frame the almost electric intensity, culminating in an epically long, licorice and chocolate-laced finish. Too stunning for mere words and rude to even try--just drink it. (LPB)" (09/2017)
Starting Bid: $675.00

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Domaine de la Côte "Sous le Chene" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (96VN, 94RP). Vinous: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Sous le Chêne is the most aromatic of the Domaine de la Côte Pinots. Readers will find a wine built on perfume, acid and tannins, with the fruit pushed into the background. Chalk, mint, sage and dried flowers all add layers of nuance to the red berry fruit. Taut and vibrant, with terrific depth, the Sous le Chêne is another wine that is going to need time in bottle to come around. Patience will be rewarded. (AG)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $115.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1993 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien (93RP). Wine Advocate: "Served blind by Jean-Hubert Delon at the chateau, the 1993 maintains is deep garnet core. The nose has really blossomed since last taste with blackberry, minerals, limestons, a hint of liquorices and a sweetness that I noted as “burnt honey”. Full-bodied on the palate with surprisingly sinewy tannins, excellent ripeness with an undertow of Morello cherry and a hint of tar on the very structured, very Saint Julien finish. Lot of typicity here. Bon vin! (NM)" (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $600.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2004 Yves Cuilleron "Terres Sombres" Côte-Rôtie (92ST) and 2-bottles of 2005 Pierre Gaillard "Côte Rozier" Côte-Rôtie. Of the 2004 Yves Cuilleron "Terres Sombres" Côte-Rôtie, Int'l Wine Cellar writes: "Ruby-red. Deep, powerful, textbook syrah aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, complicated by smoked meat, tobacco and graphite. Vibrant and sweet, showing impressive depth to its ripe dark fruit and exotic spice flavors. Gentle acidity and suave tannins give good structural support. Finishes with a refreshing bite of bitter cherry skin with excellent length. "Hold onto this, " Cuilleron advises. (JR)" (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this bottle of 1997 J.-F. Coche-Dury Volnay 1er Cru (92JG). John Gilman: "I had a very good bottle of this in a restaurant in New York back in May of 2000, but this bottle served from my cellar late in that year was even better. The nose is deep and polished, with scents of red cherries, red plums, vinesmoke, coffee, minerals, roses and vanillin oak jumping from the glass. On the palate the wine is medium-full, round and creamy, with better delineation and apparent structure than the somewhat jammy bottle I had off the restaurant wine list, and excellent grip and length on the finish. There is a touch of tannin still in this wine, but it is all tangy fruit and fine terroir right now, and hardly a crime to be drinking. I suspect that this wine will get even more complex with further bottle age, but it is a very difficult job to keep from reaching for it with some frequency." (02/2003)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Elio Grasso "Ginestra Casa Mate" Barolo (97JS, 97RP, 97VN). Vinous: "Ample and creamy on the palate, with tremendous depth, the 2016 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is super impressive, even in the early going. Next to the Gavarini Chiniera, the Ginestra Casa Matè is a Barolo of textural resonance and volume. Black cherry, plum and a range of balsamic notes infuse the 2016 with tons of character. The is one of the real standouts of the year. (AG)" (02/2020)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2011 Holdredge "Selection Massale" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (91ST), 1-bottle of 2011 Holdredge "Shaken Not Stirred" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (90ST), and 1-bottle of 2014 Holdredge "Selection Massale" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. Of the 2011 Holdredge "Selection Massale" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Int'l Wine Cellar writes: "Deep ruby. A perfumed bouquet evokes spicy red berries and flowers, along with a subtle anise quality and a touch of white pepper. A juicy, energetic midweight that offers gently sweet raspberry and cola flavors and a late jolt of star anise. Seamless and approachable, finishing with very good clarity and floral persistence." (05/2013)
Starting Bid: $75.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Linne Calodo "Cherry Red" Paso Robles Red Blend (95RP). Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Cherry Red, a blend of 64% Zinfandel, 29% Syrah and 7% Mourvèdre, has a very pretty perfume of dried violet and lavender, orange peel and earth, with savory undercurrents. The medium-bodied palate is bright, fresh and grainy, with loads of spicy layers on the long finish. (EB)" (03/2022)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 5 liter of 2013 Amuse Bouche "Vin Perdu" Napa Valley Red Blend (5L) (91VN, 90RP). Vinous: "The 2013 Vin Perdu is dark, bold and juicy, with plenty of mocha, dark chocolate, grilled herbs, menthol and blackberry jam nuances. Flashy and overt, the 2013 is a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years. The presence of Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah in the blend gives the 2013 distinctly dark-leaning tonalities of fruit. The Vin Perdu or 'lost wine' is a blend of lots from several projects overseen by winemaker Heidi Barrett. (AG)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 7-bottle lot of 2007 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92VN, 91DC). Vinous: "Bright dark ruby. Very ripe aromas and flavors of dark berries, cocoa powder and bitter chocolate. Fine-grained and light on its feet, with the exotic oak character typical of Silver Oak nicely supported by its intense fruit. Harmonious acidity and a slightly herbal quality contribute to the suavity of this wine. Expands nicely on the back half, with the fine-grained tannins coating the palate. An excellent vintage for this bottling: not a heavyweight but balanced and alive. (ST)" (05/2017)
Starting Bid: $630.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97CG, 96RP, 95WE, 94W&S, 92VN, 92WS). Connoisseurs Guide: "This year's version of Insignia is a stunning wine that vies for very top honors of the vintage. Its utterly enveloping aromas of perfectly ripe currants, creamy oak and dried violets are followed up in the mouth with wonderfully extracted, carefully proportioned Cabernet flavors that go on and on. The wine is lush yet solidly structured with a fine sense of balance and tannin right where it should be, and, as good as the wine will be in its youth, it will be better yet with age. *2008 Wine of the Year* " (12/2008)
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2018 Sine Qua Non "Profuga" California Grenache (98JD, 98RP, 96VN). Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Grenache Profuga is composed of 77.5% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 8.3% Syrah, 3.3% Petite Sirah and 0.9% Viognier. The vineyard sources are 38% Cumulus Estate, 35% The Third Twin Estate, 23% Eleven Confessions Estate and 4% Bien Nacido vineyard. Forty-one percent whole cluster was performed, predominately on the Grenache. The small proportion of Viognier was co-fermented with red grapes, but interestingly, because it ripens earlier, the white berries are frozen and added to the reds at the time of fermentation. As an added bonus, these frozen grapes help to cool and, therefore, slow the fermentation. (LPB)" (08/2021)
Starting Bid: $380.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Realm "The Tempest" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95JS, 95RP). Wine Advocate: "The 2014 The Tempest, a blend of 62% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot is a 500-case cuvée aged in about 65% new Taransaud and Darnajou French oak cooperage. A beautiful nose of cedar wood, chocolate, spice box, forest floor and black and red fruits jumps from the glass of this dense, opulent, voluptuously textured and full-bodied wine with terrific purity, can be drunk now, or cellared for up to another 15 or more years.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2019 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage ((97-100RP), (97-99JD), (96-98VN), 97DC). Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2019 Hermitage remained largely as separate components at the time of my visit. Some pre-blending had occurred, so I tasted a combination of Beaumes and Péléat, as well as components from L'Ermite, Méal and Bessards. Uniformly full-bodied, concentrated and long, with rich, velvety tannins, dark-fruit flavors (cassis, blueberries, boysenberries) and hints of crushed stone and licorice, comparisons with 2003 aren't unreasonable. (JC)" (01/2022)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Jean et Sebastien Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "Vaillons" ((92-94VN), 93JS, (89-91BH)). Vinous: "Tasted from tank just prior to bottling, the 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru shows why this vintage is so compelling. Apricot, peach and tropical fruit give the 2017 a decidedly exotic flair, and yet bright acids keep the wine lively and energetic. Sweet floral and honeyed notes build into the creamy, layered finish in this super-expressive, inviting Chablis from Dauvissat. (AG)" (07/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2007 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ((91-93RP), 92ST) and 2-bottles of 2008 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94ST, (91-93RP)). Of the 2008 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, Int'l Wine Cellar writes: "Vivid red. Drop-dead gorgeous perfume of raspberry preserves, Asian spices and fresh rose, with a deeper suggestion of violet. Sappy, penetrating and pure, with strikingly intense red fruit flavors underpinned by tangy minerality. Finishes with resonating spiciness and a lingering floral note. This wine's clarity is striking. (ST)" (05/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" (94JG, 94RP, 92BH, 92DC, 92VN). Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre has a tightly wound bouquet with a slight fumé note at first, then a trace of sea cave and a tang of the sea. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity. This has wonderful harmony, a dash of nutmeg and spice that emerges toward the finish and a very persistent aftertaste that will not go away (not that you want it to). This is an outstanding Montée de Tonnerre destined to give a lot of Chablis-lovers a lot of pleasure. (NM)" (08/2017)
Starting Bid: $720.00

Bid on this 6 liter of 1986 Louis Martini "Duke of Bourbon Celebration Cuvée Special Selection" Napa Valley Zinfandel (6L). The story of Louis Martini is a key chapter in Napa's winemaking history. Genovese immigrant Louis Martini established his first business in 1922, smack in the middle of Prohibition (in force in the US from 1919 until 1933). He was therefore limited to making "sacramental and medicinal" wines at first. With the end of prohibition, Martini became one the first winemakers in California to produce vintage varietal table wines in quantity, and at reasonable prices. With their hallmark of impeccable balance, older Louis Martini wines never cease to amaze.

Bid on this bottle of Barrell Craft Spirits "Private Release" CH09 Jamaican Rum Cask Finished Kentucky Whiskey (750ml). From the distributor: "The idea behind Barrell Craft Spirits is to “explore the unique effects of different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength.” This is accomplished through outstanding relationships within the tightly knit spirits community and sourcing the best distillates available without compromise. By definition, the bottlings of Barrell Spirits are limited in nature with new releases hitting the market frequently. Barrels are sourced from around the country (and soon the world), shipped to Barrell’s facilities in Georgetown and Frankfurt, Kentucky for additional aging and bottling. Barrell Craft Spirits is dedicated to moving towards complete transparency. However, some of their partners insist upon production non-disclosures."

Decanter rates the 1986 Bordeaux vintage a five out of five declaring it: "A particularly good vintage in the Medoc, with a number of fine wines." Boding well for this particular release, the vintage guide further states that 1986 was, "A great Cabernet vintage, particularly in St Julien, Pauillac and St Estephe. "

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (100JS, 100RP, 98JD, 98WE, 97DC, 97WS, 95ST). Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Pontet-Canet offers a very deep garnet color. Whoa—the nose explodes with a vast array of black fruit preserves and savory nuances: plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial, black cherry coulis and licorice with wafts of dried lavender, melted chocolate, charcuterie, black olives, truffles and camphor plus a hint of sandalwood. The full-bodied palate is completely filled with black fruits, exotic spices and earthy nuances with a firm foundation of ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. So much more expressive and seductive than a lot of 2010s at this stage, and yet it is still incredibly youthful! (LPB)" (05/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot in original wood; including 2-bottles of 2012 Sanguis "1/1" Santa Barbara County Syrah (95VN) and 1-bottle of 2012 Sanguis "1/1" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L) (95RP, 95VN). Of the 2012 Sanguis "1/1" Santa Barbara County Syrah, Vinous writes: "The 2012 1/1 (Syrah) possesses unreal, liqueur-like concentration and tons of super-ripe fruit. Exotic, full-throttle and totally arresting, the 2012 also manages to somehow avoid being overdone. Violets, menthol, dark spices, rose petal and cherry compote are some of the many aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass. The 1/1 is unapologetically ripe and intense, but is also beguiling. An extreme wine to be sure, the 1/1 won't please everyone, but it is without question unique, bold and very beautiful. (AG)" (08/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Maison Leroy Beaune-Sizies. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much has been written about the dynamic Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. Some of it has been malicious and motivated strictly by insidious jealousy. From time to time I have complained of her pricing structure. Yet there should never be any criticism of her philosophy of what burgundy should be. Her wines are among the noblest and purest expressions of Pinot Noir in Burgundy. They are treated with the care of a pampered child, never filtered, and bottled barrel by barrel. Given the size of her wines and their power and structure, in a cool damp cellar they will last 20 to 25 years. (RP)" (12/1989)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2009 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97WE, (94-96JD), 95RP, 93WS, 92ST) and 1-bottle of 2011 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (98RP, 94WS, 93ST, 93WE). Of the 2011 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Wine Advocate writes: "The 2011 Syrah Armada Vineyard is spectacular, and one of the highlights of this tasting, bursting from the glass with aromas of dark chocolate, smoked duck, blackberries, licorice, cassis, burning embers, tapenade and cracked black pepper. (WK)" (06/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay Vieilles Vignes. Wine Advocate: "The Voillot 2005 Volnay Vieilles Vignes smells of Kirsch, maraschino, and almond paste, awakens the palate with tart, fresh, juicy sour cherry fruit, then finishes long, sappy, startlingly clear and brisk, but with subtle underlying suggestions of raw red meat.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Luciano Sandrone "Le Vigne" Barolo (94RP, 94VN, 93ST, 93WS). Vinous: "The 1999 Barolo Le Vigne is striking and super-expressive today. Still quite youthful, the 1999 possesses lovely balance and plenty of silkiness. Subtle hints of sweet tobacco, mint, dried cherries, crushed flowers and anise are all layers of nuance in a finely sculpted, chiseled Barolo long on personality and class. This is a fabulous showing from Le Vigne. (AG)" (11/2012)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Prunotto "Bric Turot" Barbaresco (OWC - 94KO, 92WS, 91W&S) in original wood. Kerin O'Keefe: "Aromas of iris, woodland berry, wild herb and dark spice waft out of the glass. Focused and loaded with finesse, the savory palate doles out juicy Morello cherry, spiced cranberry and star anise before a savory, almost salty finish. Taut, polished tannins and fresh acidity keep it balanced. " (05/2020)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Coche-Dury Bourgogne Rouge. William Kelley of Wine Advocate writes: "The fundamentals of Domaine Coche-Dury's singular style, it bears repeating, remain the same: attentive viticulture (now with somewhat higher hedging and seasonal cover crops); harvesting on the early side; a rare aptitude—which seems to have been passed down from father to son—for knowing how hard to press and for how long; careful choice of barrels; and long, patient and meticulously supervised fermentations and élevage. The wines continue to be distinguished by their incisive acids, striking intensity and frequently appreciable presence of dry extract—the latter is something Raphaël argues can bring structure and freshness to wines from the warm vintages that Burgundy is witnessing more and more frequently. There isn't a Coche formula, rather there is a Coche palate, for decisions are made by tasting."
