Bid on this bottle of 1971 Cantina Mascarello Barolo (96JG, 96VN). Vinous: "The 1971 Barolo is a real thrill to taste and drink. Let me emphasize that second point. So often, wines like this are tasted among many other wines. On this night the two of us savor every last drop of the 1971. I have had very mixed results with the 1971, to the point I stopped seeking it out. In the 1970s (and later) Barolo was bottled only when it was sold, so it is very likely, if not probable, that the 1971 was bottled botte by botte over a period of years, which naturally leads to a certain amount of bottle variation. On this night, the 1971 is positively stellar. Deep, complex and potent, the 1971 captures all the richness of the year in its multi-faceted personality. More importantly, this bottle does not have any of the barnyard aromas and flavors that are unfortunately common in the Mascarello 1971. Simply put, this is what Barolo from the 1970s is all about. (AG)" (09/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100JD, 100RP, 97JS, 96VN). 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.' (RP)" (12/2016)
Current Bid: $845.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97JS, 95JG, 95RP, 94ST, 94VN, 94W&S, 92DC). James Suckling: "Blueberries, currants and flowers. The nose just pops out. Intense. Full body, with a round and velvety tannin structure and lots of currants, ripe strawberries. Very intense every. Black pepper at the finish. Muscular yet toned. Very structured yet balanced. This needs a minimum of four to five years of aging. Paul Draper says that perhaps this is as great as the legendary 1991. Made for aging." (05/2011)
Current Bid: $600.00

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (95JA, 94JD, 94JS, 94VN, 94WS, 91ST). Jane Anson: "The 2001 is an amazing vintage that has inched forwards over the past 20 years, still muscular although always more elegant in its tannic frame than the 2000 vintage before it. I served it out of magnum, and if wines of the year are about emotions, this definitely deserves to be among them. I was given this bottle back in 2011 when I won the Prix Baron Philippe de Rotshchild for my first book Bordeaux Legends, and I have kept it safely at home ever since. Honestly I should probably have waited another decade, as it was still young, but I had something special to celebrate, good friends coming over, and it seemed like the right moment." (10/2021)
Current Bid: $387.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 The Third Twin (Sine Qua Non) "Nuestra Señora del Tercer Gemelo" Central Coast Red Blend (99RP, 98JD, 95VN). Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Nuestra Senora Del Tercer Gemelo has a wonderfully meaty/savory nose over a core of crème de cassis and baked plums with nut and fruit cake undertones followed by yeast extract, tilled soil, fungi and unsmoked cigar notes. The massively rich, full-bodied palate is incredibly precise, features wonderfully delineated, complex savory, earthy and mineral layers, all lifted by fantastic freshness. The jaw-dropping depth of flavors is superbly supported by firm, ripe, grainy tannins, finishing on a compelling iron-ore note. Truly, this is a wine without peers! (LPB) 99+" (06/2019)
Current Bid: $460.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 98RP, 97CG, 97JD, 97JS, 97WE) in original wood. Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with stunning black and red plums, cassis and mulberries scents with loads of redcurrant sparks and compelling wafts of lilacs, pencil shavings, black olives and tilled soil plus a hint of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with red and black currant fireworks plus some exciting mineral nuances coming through, framed by firm, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and beautifully layered. (LPB)" (12/2018)
Current Bid: $1,150.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (98JS, 98RP, 93DC, 93WS, 92VN). Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Pavots, which is their proprietary red wine blend from Knights Valley, is a killer effort, and one of their all-time greats, ranking right up there with the 2007 or 1997. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, there are 3, 600 cases of it. The wine displays plenty of mocha, chocolate, blackberry, creosote and charcoal in an incredibly complex fragrance. Full-bodied and opulent, it shows, loads of tannin, a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco and plenty of black and blue fruits. Opaque purple to the rim, this wine is in need of a good 5-6 years of cellaring and certainly has 30-40 years of life in it. (RP) 98+" (12/2015)
Current Bid: $400.00

Bid on this bottle of 2006 J.-F. Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (97ST, 97VN, 94BH, 93JG, 93RP). Vinous: "In today’s day and age, it is virtually inconceivable to taste a ten year-old white Burgundy that is painfully young, but that is exactly the case with Coche’s 2006 Corton-Charlemagne. All the signatures are present – the trademark reduction, precision and salivating energy – and yet the 2006 needs time. The only question is how much. Hints of lime, slate, jasmine and white orchard fruit meld into the tense, pulsating finish. (AG)" (09/2016)
Current Bid: $2,795.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97RP, 96JS, 96VN, 95JD, 95WS). Wine Advocate: "Made without the use of Viognier, the 2019 Syrah en Cerise is a firmer and denser expression of Syrah with Walla Walla attitude and swagger. Aromas of dark cherry, smoke and a hint of baking spices with turned earth express beautifully with notions of black plums with black peppercorn. Medium-bodied and with 13.5% alcohol on the label, the palate and mouthfeel are generous as it offers a broad-shouldered structure with a firm tannic edge that is fresh and food-friendly. The wine glides to an impressive finish with lingering hints of sage and olives as the fine-grained tannins continue with persistence. (AM)" (10/2022)
Current Bid: $165.00

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne (97JS, 96JD, 96RP, 96VN, 95DC, 95WS, 94JG). James Suckling: "This is very lively and vibrant with a dense and rich center palate. Lots of complexity and balance with pastry, sliced lemon and light dried mango. Full yet racy and intense. A beautiful center palate. Linear. Shows potential for aging but so good right now." (12/2016)
Current Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Antoine Jobard Meursault "En La Barre" (90BH). Burghound: "There is excellent tension to the rich, round and opulent medium-bodied flavors that possess solid depth and length on the balanced finale. This is more energetic than usual but even so it too should be approachable on the younger side." (06/2016)
Current Bid: $193.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Butteaux" (94JD, 93JG, 93RP, (91-93VN), 92BH, 92ST). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux is a beauty that’s drinking great today. Plenty of orchard fruits, caramelized citrus, quince, toasted nuts, and a kiss of charcoal and scorched earth all make an appearance on the nose, and it hits the palate with plenty of richness and depth that turns more salty and mineral-laced on the finish. It opens up beautifully with time in the glass and is a rich, powerful Chablis to enjoy any time over the coming 10-15 years." (11/2019)
Current Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 4-magnum lot of 2011 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) ((91-94JD), 93WS, (90-92VN)). Jeb Dunnuck: One of the stronger wines in the vintage is the 2011 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau. Sporting a classical, beautifully complex array of kirsch, lavender, rolled stone like minerality, and black tea-like qualities on the nose, it is medium to full-bodied on the palate, balanced, and admirably concentrated. While it shows the vintage’s supple character, it also has solid backend tannin structure, excellent mid-palate depth, and good length. It will be an early drinker by this estate’s standards, but should still evolve gracefully... (09/2012)
Current Bid: $461.18

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah (94JD, 93RP, 93ST, 92JG). Jeb Dunnuck: "A totally brilliant Syrah that's reminiscent of a top Côte Brune with its mix of iron, black pepper, violets, and game, the 2009 Rhys Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard starts out dense and tight, but slowly unwinds over the evening to show a firm, yet elegant texture, beautifully integrated acidity, and a classically structured and tannic finish. Despite the slightly masculine profile and structure, this has the fruit to handle it. Give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar and then drink over the following decade or longer. Lovers of Syrah should not miss this beauty and it would stand toe to toe with anything coming out of California or France." (12/2011)
Current Bid: $51.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 3-bottles of 2020 Sandlands "Red Table Wine" Lodi Red Blend and 1-bottle of 2020 Sandlands Contra Costa County Mataro (93VN). Of the 2020 Sandlands Contra Costa County Mataro, Vinous writes: "The 2020 Mataro (Contra Costa County) is the standout among these 2020 reds from Sandlands. A wine of poise and energy, the 2020 is so appealing today, but clearly it has plenty more left to say in the future. Blue fruit, gravel, dried leather and earthiness confer savory intensity to this mid-weight yet potent Mataro. Give it a year or two in bottle to blossom. I loved it. (AG)" (01/2023)
Current Bid: $96.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2019 Kapcsándy "Roberta’s Reserve - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98JD, 98VN, 97RP). Vinous: "The 2019 Roberta's Reserve is another stunning wine from Kapcsándy. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, cloves, licorice and leather all race across the palate. In 2019, the Roberta's is a bit richer than it usually is, but that works just fine in amplifying all of its natural beauty. All of the fruit was sourced from one of the original blocks planted by Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer in 2002. (AG)" (10/2021)
Current Bid: $495.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Syrah (97RP, 95VN, 92WS). Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah Broken Stones is a beauty. Made from 79% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah and the rest Grenache, Mourvedre and Roussanne, it offers up full-bodied, decadent, yet incredibly pure notes of creme de cassis, smoked earth, pepper and violets. (JD)" (08/2015)
Current Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1996 Rocche dei Manzoni "Capella Santo Stefano di Perno" Barolo (92WS, 91ST) and 1-bottle of 1998 Ceretto Bricco Rocche "Prapò" Barolo. Of the 1996 Rocche dei Manzoni "Capella Santo Stefano di Perno" Barolo, Wine Spectator writes: "Lots of ripe fruit, with violet and light toasty oak. Full-bodied, with sweet tannins, wonderful fruit and a long, long finish. Balanced and long. This is nice now, but will improve with age." (05/2007)
Current Bid: $205.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Tor Kenward "Herb Lamb Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JS, 94JD, 94RP, 94VN). James Suckling: "The aromas are so beautiful with tile, currants and hints of dried herbs. Full body, chewy tannins and spices. Currants and hints of moss, too. Love the firm tannins at the end." (05/2018)
Current Bid: $625.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Vérité "La Muse" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 100RP, 97JD, 96VN) in original wood. Wine Advocate: "The 2014 La Muse (2, 800 cases) is a legendary effort. The wine offers an opaque purple color and a gorgeous nose of lead pencil shavings, blackberry, incense, Asian spice, cocoa, plum, and a touch of chocolate and barrique. On the palate, more cassis and blackberry come to the forefront. The wine is unctuous, with adequate acidity and a stunning energy underneath the massive fruit and body. (RP)" (10/2016)
Current Bid: $624.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2019 Realm "The Bard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99JD, 98JS, 97RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 The Bard checks in as 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, and it’s another dense, rich, powerful wine from this team that readers are going to absolutely love. Coming from throughout the valley (it’s always a great representation of the vintage), it offers up a brilliant nose of crème de cassis, ripe plums, graphite, scorched earth, and chocolate. About as seamless as they come on the palate, it’s full-bodied and has a thrilling texture, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It’s one of those wines where I feel like I’m overusing adjectives, but it’s warranted." (09/2021)
Current Bid: $371.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Shakti" California Grenache (100RP, 97JD, 96VN). Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Grenache Shakti is blended of 88% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre, 4% Petite Sirah and 2% Touriga Nacional, coming 51% from the Cumulus (Estate) Vineyard, 18% from The Third Twin (Estate) Vineyard, 9.5% from Bien Nacido Vineyard and 21.5% for the Eleven Confessions (Estate) Vineyard. It was produced using 42% whole cluster and aged for around 21 months in French oak, 6% new (bottled June 21, 2017). It offers up a deep garnet-purple color and notes of dried Mediterranean herbs, dusty earth, Chinese five spice and rose petals over a core of red currants, mulberries, red plums and black raspberries, plus a waft of chocolate covered cherries. Full-bodied, decadently concentrated and yet very, very pretty in the mouth, it delivers incredibly fine-grained, ripe tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing on a persistent--totally disarming--perfumed red fruit note. (LPB)" (09/2017)
Current Bid: $700.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Caymus "40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 91WS). Wine Advocate: "They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. 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. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. Amazing! (RP)" (10/2014)
Current Bid: $495.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Latour, Pauillac (100JS, 99DC, 99VN, 99WS, 98WE, 97RP, 97ST). James Suckling: "Latour has made truly great wines in the past two decades—and this is one of the best. It has fabulous aromas of black truffles, currants, raspberry and dried flowers. Mind-blowing on the palate, it’s an emotional and soulful red." (04/2014)
Current Bid: $727.27

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Domaine Georges Mugneret-Gibourg Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((96-98VN), 97DC, 97RP, (93-96JM), 94BH). Vinous: "The 2019 Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru includes 15% whole cluster fruit this year. This was very tight, almost surly on the nose following on from the Echézeaux, wet limestone suffusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins. There is an electric line of acidity here, and superb mineralité and symmetry toward a persistent finish that lingers long in the mouth. Very sweet, almost candied on the aftertaste. Just bloomin’ gorgeous. (NM)" (10/2020)
Starting Bid: $1,900.00

Bid on this bottle of 1970 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (90RP). Wine Advocate: "The bouquet definitely has more vigour then previous bottles encountered, with sandalwood, cigar box and cedar to the fore. Not a complex nose, but nicely defined and unashamedly 'classic' in style. The palate is medium-bodied and well-balanced, good level of ripeness, elegant; harmonious but aloof. The second half is conservative but still fresh with just a touch of piquancy right on the finish. (NM)" (05/2009)
Current Bid: $320.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Perrier Jouët "Fleur de Champagne Belle Epoque" Brut Champagne (93WS). Wine Spectator: "Subtle and creamy, with peach and apple flavors shaded by grapefruit and yeast accents. This is compact, despite being ripe, and finishes firm and crisp. (BS)" (11/2009)
Current Bid: $151.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1967 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leognan. Writing about the chateau's wines generally, Robert Parker has noted: "Haut-Brion's signature is most frequently its glorious perfume of tobacco, black fruits, smoke, and dried herbs, combined with sweet, supple fruit, all crammed into a concentrated wine that never has the weight or tannic power of a Medoc, or the thick unctuosity of a top right bank wine. As I have frequently written, the one significant change to my palate over the last twenty years has been the fact that while I have always admired Haut-Brion, now I am addicted to its perfume and complexity. It is never the biggest of the first-growths, but it is usually among the most compelling wines of this elite group, with the most profound set of aromatics of any of its peers." (02/1998)
Starting Bid: $825.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2014 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (95VN, 94JG, 94RP, 91BH), 2-bottles of 2015 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (97JD, 95VN, 94BH, 94JG, 94RP), and 1-bottle of 2016 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (96JD, 95JG, 95RP, 95VN). Of the 2015 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "I think a significant step up over the Horseshoe Vineyard (time will help clear this up, though), the 2015 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard is straight up sensational. Its medium ruby color is followed by a deep, slightly reticent bouquet of cherry pits, black raspberries, dried violets, forest floor and spice. Incredibly nuanced, seamless, silky and refined on the palate, with terrific tension, purity, and concentration, it’s one of the do-not-miss wines of the 2015 vintage!" (08/2017)
Current Bid: $255.00

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Bond "Vecina" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100JD, 98JS, 98RP, 97VN, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Also pure perfection in a glass, the 2015 Vecina comes from an east-facing site located not far from the Harlan Estate. It was previously a terraced vineyard but was replanted when they opted to remove the terraces 7-8 years ago. Totally thrilling notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, barbecue, white chocolate, and spring flower notes all flow to a full-bodied, powerful wine that has building tannins, no sensation of weight, hints of background oak, and incredible intensity and length. It’s a true “wow” wine that could not be better. Don’t miss it!" (01/2019)
Current Bid: $391.00

Bid on this magnum of 2001 Paolo Scavino "Bric del Fiasc" Barolo (1.5L) (96VN, 95WS, 93ST). Vinous: "The 2001 Barolo Bric del Fiasc is a gorgeous wine laced with smoke, tar, licorice and menthol. The 2001 remains powerful and authoritative, with more than enough fruit to balance its huge tannins. Today it comes across as almost impenetrably young. There is plenty of upside to cellaring this fabulous Barolo. (AG)" (04/2012)
Current Bid: $175.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (100RP, 99JD). Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard, which will probably be released in a few months, displays great minerality, notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pear, and white flowers as well as a touch of quince. A wine of great intensity, yet incredible ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable. When you consider that they use 100% new French oak and 100% heavy toast for both their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it is remarkable how little oak appears in these wines. (RP)" (03/2016)
Current Bid: $440.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (99RP, 94VN). Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah James Berry Vineyard Bone Rock is the star of the show in 2012. Borderline perfection, it has straight up awesome notes of black and blue fruits, pepper, crushed violets and searing chalky minerality that shows on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, it's a stacked, concentrated, layered Syrah that never puts a foot wrong. (JD)" (08/2015)
Current Bid: $208.73

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Cayuse "Impulsivo" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo (97RP, 95JS, 94WS, 93ST, 93WE). Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Impulsivo showed similar to my review in 2013, with lots of cedar, spice-box, dried rose petal and sweet cassis and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, ripe and concentrated, it never seems over the top, has building tannin and a fresh, focused feel that carries through the finish. It’s a brilliantly balanced 2010 that will have 20-25 years of overall longevity. (JD)" (06/2015)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Louis Jadot Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaux Monts" ((92-94RP), (91-93BH), (90-92ST)). Wine Advocate: "Alluring scents of ripe purple plum, black currant, clove, and star anise mark Jadot’s 2005 Vosne-Romanee Beaux Monts. Smoked and roasted meat flavors ally themselves to dark fruits and exotic spices on the palate, with subtle hints of caramel and vanilla from the oak accenting rather than intruding. This displays a warmer, more obviously rich and opulent character than many young 2005 Vosnes and than nearly any other 2005s from Jadot. Deep, fat folds of fruit persist with spices and low-toned roasted meat into an imposingly long, sumptuous finish. (DS)" (06/2007)
Current Bid: $343.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Penultimate (Promontory) Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96VN). Vinous: "The 2014 Penultimate is a wine of magnificent finesse and nuance, the same qualities that make Promontory so special in this vintage. There is a feeling of translucence that runs through the 2014 that is so compelling. Dried herbs, mint, leather, smoke, tobacco and wild dark cherry are some of the many notes that flesh out with time in the glass. I especially admire the wine’s tension, vibrancy and phenomenal finish. The 2014 is so impressive upon opening, but then shuts down quickly in the glass. A few more years in bottle will help soften the noble mountain tannins. (AG)" (09/2020)
Current Bid: $235.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Carlisle "Papa's Block" Russian River Valley Syrah ((92-94RP), 92ST). Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Syrah Papa’s Block is endowed with serious grip and tension. Dark raspberries, savory herbs, crushed flowers and stems are all very much present in the glass. At this stage, the whole clusters (32%) still need time to integrate, but all the aromas and flavors are vivid and beautifully articulated throughout. Fresh, floral notes add lift on the finish, while the firm tannins provide the underlying architecture. The Papa’s Block is highly compelling, but it won’t be ready to drink for at least a few years. (AG)" (04/2013)
Current Bid: $67.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Dominique Laurent Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes (92RP). Wine Advocate: "Laurent's 2006 Clos Vougeot Vieilles Vignes displays blackberry and dark cherry fruit with the viscosity and intensity – but not the superficial sweetness – of a liqueur. Site-typical aromatic overtones of cedar and roasted meats find their counterpart in resinous and beefy low-tones on a broad but firm palate, and this finishes with a veritable rolling tide of fruit concentrate and meat broth reduction. This is powerful rather than refined, and would be hard to pick out as a 2006. I would plan on giving it 2-3 years in bottle before re-visiting, and would anticipate at least a decade's active life. (DS)" (12/2009)
Current Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 8" Central Coast Red Blend (100JD, 98RP, 97VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "I rated the 2014 No 8 Cumulus Vineyard 99 points last year but found this bottle to be literally as good as it gets. Made from 38% Syrah, 33% Grenache, 16% Touriga Nacional and the balance Mourvèdre and Petite Sirah, fermented with 43% whole clusters and aged in close to equal parts new and used French oak, it offers a heavenly bouquet of black raspberries, white chocolate, exotic spices, and graphite. This flows to a full-bodied wine that has off-the-charts purity and elegance, a deep, layered, multi-dimensional texture, not a hard edge to be found, and a finish that won’t quit. The 2014s are upfront and approachable (there’s plenty of similarities to the 2016s) yet this beauty is going to cruise in the cellar on its purity, depth, and balance. It’s a true 'Wow' wine!" (10/2018)
Current Bid: $595.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Peter Michael "Au Paradis" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (99JD, 99JS, 96VN, 94DC, 94RP). James Suckling: "Loads of blackberries, blackcurrants, pine needles, lavender, meat and hints of fresh sage. Full bodied and layered with fine tannins. So polished and beautiful. I love the polish, the gorgeous sensibility and length. Refreshing and bright. I have enjoyed tasting it and pondering its greatness. Try to drink after 2023." (02/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Occidental (Kistler) "Cuvée Elizabeth - Bodega Headlands" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (99JD, 97RP, 97VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands is the richest, deepest, and most concentrated in the lineup. It offers slightly more black fruit as well as hints of graphite, cassis, flowers, and forest floor/leafy herbs. It still shows the more fresh and lively style of the Sonoma Coast, with brilliant acidity, yet it hits the palate with an incredible amount of beautiful fruit, plenty of tannins, and a layered, complex style that keeps you coming back to the glass. As with the other releases here, it needs a year or two of bottle age." (06/2018)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2013 Aril Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94VN). Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is the best wine from Aril yet. Rich, deep and powerful in the glass, with tons of Calistoga muscle, the 2013 is endowed with serious intensity in all of its dimensions. An exotic mélange of black cherry, chocolate, leather, licorice, earthiness, smoke and tobacco gives the wine much of its complexity. The 2013 is somehow quite powerful, but yet retains a mid-weight sense of structure. (AG)" (03/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Abreu "Thorevilos" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97VN). Vinous: "The 2008 Thorevilos is the one wine in this tasting that still needs time. Then again, that is Thorevilos. Dense, powerful and explosive, the 2008 packs a huge punch. Crème de cassis, blueberry jam, violet, lavender, chocolate and spice all meld together in dense, super-concentrated wine endowed with serious intensity. Vivid and outrageously beautiful, the 2008 Thorevilos dazzles today. Readers lucky enough to own it are in for a real treat. In 2008 Thorevilos is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (05/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2016 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir (94JD, 94VN, 92JG, 92RP, 91BH), 2-bottles of 2018 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (94JD, 94VN), and 2-bottles of 2019 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir (94VN, 93JD, 93JG, 91BH). Of the 2016 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir, Vinous writes: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is beautifully lifted and precise. Bright red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely layered in a Pinot that speaks to understatement and class. In this range, the Family Farm stands out for its crystalline precision and nuance. All the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 was done with 15% stems, the least Rhys has used for the Family Farm. (AG)" (08/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 94VN, 94WS). Wine Advocate: "A classic Paso Robles Syrah (57% Syrah, 24% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre) that delivers on all accounts, the 2014 Heart Stone Vineyard is a big, rich, decadently styled beauty that offers tons of upfront spice, dark fruits, licorice and smoked earth aromatics, with more floral, violets and sappy underbrush notes coming through with air that keep it far for simple or straightforward. Utterly seamless on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a big, rich mid-palate and the chalky tannin that's the hallmark of these limestone hills on the west side of Paso Robles, this riveting, powerful, yet weightless beauty just begs to be drunk today, yet it will evolve easily for a decade or more.

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Domenico Clerico "Briccotto Bussia" Barolo (1.5L). Domenico Clerico is one of the most intense men you will ever meet, his wines carry the same character of intensity. Spectacular depth of fruit, length and balance a superb wine. Robert Parker notes that Domenico Clerico is "one of the most gifted winemakers in Piedmont...these are wines of extraordinary richness, amazing aromatics, and sensual personalities that satiate both the hedonistic and the intellectual senses." According to importer Michael Skurnik, "Clerico is one of the most respected names in all Barolo, and his wines are renowned for both winemaking of the highest quality and for exceptional character, deriving from outstanding vineyard holdings in four of the greatest crus of Monforte: Ginestra, Bussia, Pajana and Mosconi."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 98JS, 97VN, 95WE, 95WS). Wine Advocate: "A remarkable wine, the 2010 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select has gone from strength to strength since it was in cask. It is stunningly rich, with classic, fragrant notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, vanilla, graphite and spring flowers. It exhibits an opaque purple color, with a full-bodied, massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness, and again, a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. It’s classic California Cabernet, but beautifully put together, showing impeccable craftsmanship and fabulous potential. This is obviously a very young, infantile style of Cabernet that won’t hit its prime for at least another decade and last close to half a century, based on how older vintages that were less well-endowed have matured from Shafer.

Current Bid: $745.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine de la Côte "Memorious" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (95VN, 94WE, 92RP). Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Memorious is open-knit and inviting, with striking red fruit character. Blood orange, spice, menthol, licorice and rose petal infuse the 2017 with wonderful dimensions of nuance. A wine of character and pedigree, the Memorious is also remarkably open-knit at this stage. This is a stellar showing. (AG)" (09/2019)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2018 Morlet "Ma Douce" Fort Ross-Seaview Chardonnay (99JD, 97RP, 95JS, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Chardonnay Ma Douce (which is named after winemaker Luc Morlet's wife) shows a more racy, focused style compared to the Coup de Coeur and has gorgeous notes of caramelized lemon, orange blossom, white flowers, spice, and toasted bread. Coming from the Fort Ross-Seaview region of the Sonoma Coast, it has a touch of marine-like salinity, full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a monster of a finish. It's another riveting Chardonnay from Morlet that will evolve for 8-10+ years." (08/2020)
