Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2015 M. Chapoutier "Les Granilites" St. Joseph (94RP, 93DC, 92JD, 92JS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerhouse 2015 Saint Joseph les Granilites sacrifices none of its intricate crushed stone elements to the warmth of the vintage, it just adds layers of creamy, ripe blackberries over the top. This full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine should provide close to two decades of drinking pleasure. (JC)" (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $147.03

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Davis "Phase V" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This small estate specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Sirah, and the Phase V sees them as blending companions joined by Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon takes the lead though, marrying dark black fruit with the toasty notes of this powerful, rich red.
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $150.01

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Concha y Toro "Don Melchor" Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto (96DC, 94RP, 93WE, 92WS, 91W&S). Decanter: "Tirado fine-tuned the riper style of Don Melchor even more. Youthful and powerful, for better or worse, the mintiness is gone, replaced by hints of cedar, tobacco and minerals. Long and precise, it’s a very pretty, but tight, youthful wine. (MA)" (06/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95DC, 95JD, 95WS, 94RP, (93-94VN)). Wine Spectator: "A dark and winey style, offering a mix of plum, black currant and black cherry notes, infused with black tea, fruitcake and anise accents. Solidly built, vibrant and energetic from start to finish, this carries copious fruit easily through the lengthy finish. (JM)" (11/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Grace Family "Blank Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Aromas of redcurrant, cherry, earth, smoke and tobacco. Sweet and plump, with moderately complex flavors of redcurrant, gravel and loam; showing less of the eucalyptus character of past vintages, which winemaker Gary Brookman attributes to the maturing vines (they were planted in 1998), the small crop level, and an element of dehydration in 2004. Finishes with sweet tannins. (ST)" (05/2007)
Starting Bid: $60.00

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Hiatus Napa Valley Red Blend. Miniscule case production from a boutique winery lead by proprietor Mark Davidowski and crafted by a team of winemakers who each bring their own experiences to the range of wines produced. This is a blend of 1/3 Syrah, 1/3 Cabernet Franc, 1/3 Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Petit Sirah.
Starting Bid: $25.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98RP, 98WE, 97VN, 95JS, 95W&S, 94CG, 94DC, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There were 12, 300 cases produced in 2013, and this vintage of Insignia is certainly going to turn out to be one of the great ones. The wine offers a stunning inky blue/purple color, a gorgeous nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, pen ink, graphite, new saddle leather and barrique. The wine has fabulous concentration, a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel, and tremendous finish with moderate tannin. It’s interesting to note that the Phelps winemaking staff had been gradually reducing the amount of Merlot in this wine over recent vintages. (RP) 98+ " (10/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Clarendon Hills "Piggott Range" Syrah South Australia (97RP, 96JH, 95WS, 93ST, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Syrah Piggott Range is quite backward currently. Glass-coating, it is deep crimson in color with mineral notes, violets, spice box, black pepper, espresso, smoked game, and blueberry aromatics. Deceivingly opulent, it has enough structure to merit 8-10 years of cellaring and should make old bones. Drink it through 2035. (JM)" (10/2007)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Morgenster "Estate" Bordeaux Blend Stellenbosch (94DC, 92VN, 90RP). Decanter: "Intense, deep, dark and brooding, with plenty of life left. Although it shows evolution, there is dark-cherry and berry fruit character, spice and leafy fresh notes to finish. Acidity keeps everything in check. An intriguing Bordeaux blend which, though clearly not from southwest France, shares similarities with the classic style. (AH)" (03/2020)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Larkmead "Firebelle" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 94JS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Living up to its barrel tasting notes, the 2012 Proprietary Red Firebelle (54% Merlot, 21% Malbec, 13% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon) was aged 18 months in 62% French oak. Sweet blackcurrant, blackberry, licorice, chocolate and loamy soil notes are followed by a savory, expansive, opulent, dense yet approachable and exuberant wine. It is best consumed over the next 12-15 years. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Morlet "Le Petits Morlets" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. A cuvée blend of Cabernet Sauvignon fruit from the youngest vines on the estate, aged 18 months in French oak barrels. Le Petits Morlets is named after the Morlet family children. Winemaker notes: "Displaying a very intense bouquet of black currant, candied red and black cherries and mocha, intermixed with hints of blond tobacco leaves and earthy notes of leather and toasted red pepper. This wine possesses youthful, yet sweet tannins and is characterized by its overall richness, suave character and approachability."
Starting Bid: $58.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Booker "Fracture" Paso Robles Syrah (99RP, 94WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Fracture is an utterly sensational blend of 100% Syrah, all from the estate Booker Vineyard, that exhibits off-the-chart notes of creme de cassis, crushed flowers, licorice, vanilla bean and toasted spice. Possessing perfect integration of its fruit, alcohol, tannin and acidity, it's full-bodied and incredibly seamless, with terrific concentration, a full, layered mid-palate and a blockbuster finish. Paso Robles Syrah at its finest, this incredible wine will benefit from a year or two in the cellar, yet thrill through 2025. Hats off to Eric Jensen for this absolutely killer effort and readers who doubt the quality of wine coming from these rolling hills west of Paso Robles need to try this wine. (JD)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $230.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Quilceda Creek "Galitzine Vineyard" Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon contains 1% Petit Verdot. It offers up a splendid bouquet of toasty new oak, earth notes, espresso, incense, blackberry, and plum. A bit more structured than the Palengat cuvee, it is slightly denser, layered, and intense. (JM)" (08/2010)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Regusci "Estate" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. Gaetano Regusci founded this estate in 1932. Back then, ranching in Napa Valley meant ranching cattle, and farming hay and plums. Cabernet Sauvignon and other grapes were planted in the 1960s, and the estate has enjoyed a growing esteem since then.
Starting Bid: $42.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Sadie Family "Columella" Swartland Syrah-Mourvèdre (96RP, 93WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Columella is matured for ten months in cask with 10% new oak, and then another ten months in foudres; Eben believes this slows down the maturation. It has a very complex bouquet, mercurial on the nose, and bestowed with wild strawberry and cranberry scents, incense and a hint of marmalade that is beautifully detailed. The palate is medium-bodied, extremely refined and mineral-laden, symmetrical and standing on tip-toes on the finish -- something that this label could not do when Eben started. It is compact at the moment, but it will turn into an astonishing Swartland wine. (NM)" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $77.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Saxum "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Red Blend (98JD, 95VN, 95WS, 94RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as a final blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 22% Zinfandel, 13% Syrah, 13% Tempranillo and the balance Grenache and Petite Sirah, the 2014 Paderewski Vineyard is as voluptuous and decadent as it gets. Plum sauce, exotic spices, white pepper, candy corn and spring flowers, it hits the palate with a broad, expansive, sexy style, ripe tannin, no weight and a blockbuster finish. It’s so well balanced and seamless, it can come across as a touch easy, yet it has terrific complexity, good mid-palate density and a great, great finish. This is what great wine is all about." (08/2017)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Signorello "Padrone" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a fabulous wine, meant to evolve over three decades. It offers up notes of charcoal, scorched earth, blackcurrant, blackberry, chocolate and a touch of espresso. A wine of great intensity, full-bodied opulence and a multilayered mouthfeel, this is a formidably endowed, serious Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine from vineyards with some of the best fruit on the estate. Drink it over the next 30 years. (RP) 97+" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $96.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. The 2010 vintage is the third release of the Mascot, Will Harlan's wine produced with grapes from the younger vines at Harlan Estate and BOND. Notes from the winemaker: "2010 was one of the coolest years in recent memory, and one that provided a nurturing backdrop for these young rooted vines to express themselves. The growing season began late, with budbreak occurring in mid to late April. Extra diligence and care were required of the team at every stage during leafing, fruit thinning, and harvest. Nature was benevolent during the long, measured harvest, allowing our team to pick each lot as it ripened. Notes of graphite, cedar, and forest floor are ever-present on the nose. On entry the wine is brought into focus seamlessly through a fine lens of acidity, lending energy and freshness to power and structure. Soft yet supple tannins expand out horizontally on the palate, resolving into an extremely long finish."
Starting Bid: $126.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2002 Louis Latour Meursault 1er Cru "Perrières" ((91-93RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensual, light to medium-bodied, yellow plum-scented wine, the 2002 Meursault-Perrieres is a satiny-textured, soft effort. It reveals a powerful underlying minerality, gorgeous depth, and a pure, lush, prolonged finish. (PR)" (02/2004)
Starting Bid: $343.33

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Torbreck "Run Rig" Shiraz Barossa Valley (99RP, 96ST, 95JH, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 RunRig opens with wonderful perfume, and though this label usually contains a splash of Viognier, which could account for the fragrant nose, it has none this vintage. Redolent of violets and blueberries it is very spicy with an undercurrent of anise and Indian spices muddled with mulberries. Taut and elegant on the palate, it gives plenty of concentrated fruit flavor with crisp acid and firm, fine tannins. It finishes long. (LPB)" (02/2013)
Starting Bid: $173.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Vangone "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inaugural vintage 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from 412 clone from two different blocks: B Block and D Block. It was aged for 30 months in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it has a blackcurrant cordial, blackberry pie and mocha-scented nose with hints of baking spices, underbrush and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is beautifully textured by approachable, ripe, fine-grained tannins, with plenty of freshness and persistent earthy layers. (LPB) 95+" (10/2017)
Starting Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2019 Sine Qua Non "Distenta I" California Syrah ((98-100JD), 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, it erupts from the glass with a powerfully fragrant nose of red roses, Morello cherries, boysenberries and juicy blueberries, followed by hints of mocha, star anise, cardamom and cassia. The concentrated, full-bodied palate is jam-packed with bright, crunchy black, blue and red fruits. It has a rock-solid structure of firm, finely-grained tannins and seamless freshness lifting the shimmering layers to a long, energetic finish. The complexity and vivacity of this Syrah are simply jaw-dropping! (LPB)" (08/2021)
Starting Bid: $470.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Paul Hobbs "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 94VN, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the amazing Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard, Hobbs’ 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a slightly more opulent, broader, savory effort that comes close to the perfect 2002. The 2007 has more noticeable tannin than the 2002 did at the same stage as well as more obvious minerality, but notes of graphite, black currant liqueur, licorice, cedar, and spice box are found in this full-bodied, multidimensional, fabulously concentrated wine. It was aged in 100% new Taransaud French oak barrels. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following three decades. (RP) 98+" (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $635.50

Bid on this magnum of 2013 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (100DC, 100JS, 100RP, 100VN). Vinous: "The 2013 Dominus overwhelms all the senses with its magnificent overall balance and towering intensity. Deep and nearly impenetrable in the glass, the 2013 boasts off the charts dry extract and overall power. Violets, smoke, black cherries, menthol, incense, crème de cassis and dark spices are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. Even better in bottle than it was in barrel, the 2013 is utterly magnificent. This is a remarkably vivid, nuanced wine considering its sheer size. (AG)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $1,350.00

Bid on this bottle of 2019 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr Crane Vineyard is opaque purple-black colored, prancing out of the glass with vibrant notions of blueberry preserves, black cherry compote and blackcurrant cordial, plus nuances of pencil lead, tapenade, violets, mocha and crushed rocks. The full-bodied palate is built like a brick house, featuring very firm, fine, densely pixilated Dr. Crane tannins and bold freshness supporting layer upon layer of crunchy black berries and minerals, featuring a firework display of fragrant earth and floral notes on the long, long, long finish. Right up there with Napa Valley’s greatest, this is going to be a legendary wine. Give it a good 5-7 years to really fan out and drink it over the next 30 years+. (LPB)" (09/2021)
Starting Bid: $525.00

Bid on this 3-half-bottle lot of 1990 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (98RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: A warm to hot vintage ideal for producing outstanding reds does not necessarily make for a great Sauternes vintage, but in the case of 1990 it did. Dry, warm winds in the autumn contributed to the level of concentration that this wine exhibits. Fortunately, a little rain in late September and early October ensured that botrytis flourished well in the end, the final factor necessary to achieve this extraordinary expression. 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. (LPB) (08/2019)
Starting Bid: $735.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 96DC, 95JS, 95RP, 95VN) in original wood. Decanter: "A fist of late summer cherries, raspberry and bilberry fruits set out their stall, all with the juicy character that confirms, even in a hot vintage like 2017, Opus can deliver balance and sculpted elegance. Beautiful grip, creamy texture with a strikingly powerful tannic frame. As the wine stays in the glass the floral aromatics begin to bloom up. A brilliant Opus. 20 days maceration - around half what it would have been a decade ago. 54% native yeast, as part of their native yeast project. 5% Merlot and 1% Malbec complete the blend. Harvest spread out over September 5 to October 8, just before the fires, by which time they had less than 10% of the fruit still out on the vines. (JA)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $1,770.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Lewis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95WS). Wine Spectator: "Remarkably elegant and refined for a wine of this size and depth, with tiers of plum, blackberry and currant, as well as subtle touches of black licorice that remain pure and graceful on the long, lingering aftertaste. *#1 Top 100 Wines of 2016, Highly Recommended* (JL)" (02/2016)
Starting Bid: $370.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1971 Margaux, Margaux (92JG). John Gilman: "The bouquet is deep and quite refined, offering up scents of baked red fruit, a touch of orange peel, a fine base of chalky soil tones, cigar ash, hints of summer truffle and a lovely topnote of tobacco leaf. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very suave on the attack, with a plush core, fine focus and grip, melted tannins and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. This is really a lovely example of Margaux (and one of the best from the latter Ginestet era here) and the 1971 vintage, which has been unjustly maligned for a long, long time." (07/2017)
Starting Bid: $640.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Madrona Ranch possesses an opaque blue/purple color as well as an extraordinary, enveloping, massive aromatic profile consisting of spring flowers, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, blueberries, raspberries and blackberry liqueur. In the mouth, there is sensational texture, full-bodied intensity, and terrific freshness, precision and vibrancy, despite what is undeniably a massive, rich, intense wine that should age well for another 25-35 years. The 2001s were about as profound as I have ever tasted from Abreu, but the 2002s may be even sexier since they are slightly more evolved. (RP)" (06/2012)
Starting Bid: $960.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Hors Catégorie Walla Walla Valley Syrah (OWC - 98RP, 97JD, 97JS, 97VN, 96WE, 94WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bursting from the glass, the 2017 Syrah has a mineral essence with aromas of summer sausage, black raspberry, blackberry and dark plum with savory aromas of black pepper spices, potpourri, touches of cocoa powder and freshly roasted coffee bean. The wine has a focus and precision that presides with the top bottlings from around the world. Aromas of newly tilled earth explode from the glass with floral notions of lilac and rose nuances that waft with spicy tones. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is seamless, bounding forth with complexity and a velvety richness that is exponentially compounded by the power the resides at its core. (AM)" (08/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (100RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still a youngster, the blockbuster 1995 Ermitage le Pavillon is a quintessential Hermitage in every way. Full-bodied, powerful, thick and unctuous, with tons of smoky, black, black fruits, tar, saddle leather and peppery herbs, this perfect wine is massively concentrated, rich and stacked, with masses of ripe tannin hiding under its still lively and fresh fruit. And while it’s a brilliant drink today, it’s still not yet fully mature. This tour de Force beauty will see its 50th birthday in fine form! (JD)" (09/2016)
Starting Bid: $700.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Ornellaia" Bolgheri Superiore (97JS, 94DC, 94RP, 94VN, 93WS). James Suckling: "A tight and silky red with compacted fruit and tannin texture featuring blackcurrant, mushroom and bark undertones. Full body, firm tannins and a minerally finish. Excellent structure and mouthfeel. A cooler style of Ornellaia, bringing it back to the classicism of this celebrated region. Bordeaux blend." (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $560.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96VN, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon included fruit from the 2-acre, old vine parcel that is nearly 70 years of age. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious notes of spring flowers, blackberries, black raspberries and wet rocks. The wine’s gravelly minerality and spectacular opulence and density make it an instant classic. … It showed incredibly well last year, and it still reveals the potential to possibly merit a 3-digit score – it’s that special. One of the classic wines of Napa Valley, Scarecrow’s Cabernet Sauvignons are made by well-known winemaking consultant Celia Welch. This historic vineyard in Rutherford, which owns some of the oldest vines in all of Napa, continues to turn out some of Napa’s most profound Cabernet Sauvignons. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $1,290.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Vice Versa "Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JD, 92RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras comes from a rocky vineyard that normally yields a more elegant, floral wine compared to the Dr. Crane Vineyard, which is just a stone’s throw away. Deep purple-hued with notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, flowery incense, and cigar tobacco, this rock star of a wine hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a lush, opulent texture, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. 95+" (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $420.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (100JS, 100RP, 98DC, 98WS, 97VN, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What a blockbuster effort! Atypically powerful, one day, the 2009 Haut-Brion may be considered to be the 21st century version of the 1959. It is an extraordinarily complex, concentrated effort made from a blend of 46% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc with the highest alcohol ever achieved at this estate, 14.3%. Even richer than the perfect 1989, with similar technical numbers although slightly higher extract and alcohol, it offers up a sensational perfume of subtle burning embers, unsmoked cigar tobacco, charcoal, black raspberries, wet gravel, plums, figs and blueberries. There is so much going on in the aromatics that one almost hesitates to stop smelling it. (RP)" (02/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2018 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100JD, 99RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "As always, the 2018 Absurd is a cellar selection of what the estate thinks is the absolute best they can do in the vintage, and in this reviewer’s opinion, they succeed brilliantly. (I’ve rated four of the five vintages I’ve tasted 100 points.) The 2018 reveals a dense purple/blue color to go with a monster bouquet of blackcurrants, scorched earth/burning embers, tobacco, lead pencil shavings, chocolate, and gravelly earth. I’ve often compared this wine to a great Pessac from Bordeaux given its incredible minerality and cold fireplace-like nuances, and the 2018 has these in spades. Concentrated, full-bodied, and built like a skyscraper, it builds beautifully with time in the glass and has incredible purity, silky, polished tannins, and a dense, layered mid-palate. " (01/2021)
Starting Bid: $875.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100DC, 100RP, 100WE, 99JS, 97WS, 96JG, 96ST, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lafite Rothschild is a little mute on the nose at this stage, opening to reveal warm blackcurrants, baked plums and boysenberry scents with hints of chocolate mint, violets, cedar chest and pencil lead. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed with perfumed black fruit layers, it has a rock-solid backbone of fantastically ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing very long and minerally. Still very youthful! (LPB)" (03/2020)

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot; including 3-bottles of 2015 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (93JD, 91VN) and 3-bottles of 2016 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (96JD, 95W&S, 95WE, 94VN, 93WS, 92RP). Of the 2016 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah, Jeb Dunnuck writes: "The 2016 Syrah Donna's is a slightly toned-down version of this cuvée yet still offers fabulous notes of bacon fat, violets, beef blood, crushed pepper, and huge salty minerality, all of which is grounded by a terrific core of dark fruit." (10/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (OWC - 100JS, 100VN, 98RP, 98ST, 96WS) in original wood. Vinous: "The 2010 Harlan Estate is a total head-turner. Powerful, dense and exotically ripe – as so many wines are in this vintage – the 2010 dazzles with magnificent intensity. Baritone inflections run through the black cherry, graphite, smoke, tar and licorice flavors. Heat spikes at the end of what was generally a cold growing season yielded wines that bring together structure and fruit density. (AG)" (01/2017)
Starting Bid: $2,255.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot in original wood; including 2-bottles of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend (99RP, 99VN, 98JD), 1-bottle of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend (1.5L) (99RP, 99VN, 98JD), and 1-bottle of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Número Um" Central Coast Touriga Nacional ((95-97VN), 95RP). Of the 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend, Vinous writes: "The 2015 No. 9 Cumulus Vineyard is off the charts gorgeous, just as it was from barrel last year. Tasted from bottle, the 2009 is a bit closed, but all the aromatic depth, soaring intensity and energy that it showed from barrel is there. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s sensational pedigree. (AG)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $1,155.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des 60 Ouvrées" (94BH, 93ST, 92RP, 92WE). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The ripest nose to this point exhibits liqueur-like notes of plum, blue berry and violets that complement well the equally ripe, opulent and mineral-inflected flavors that are also quite full-bodied, all wrapped in a detailed, vibrant and hugely long finish. The underlying material here is superb and this should easily improve for the next 12 to 15 years and last for an equivalent period thereafter. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* " (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $321.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos des Issarts" ((90-93BH), 90JG). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A toasty but fresh nose that is minerally and refined, featuring pretty red pinot fruit nuanced by very subtle hints of game and earth that continue onto the firm, understated and energetic flavors that culminate in a firm and driving finish. This is a lovely effort that possess really impressive long-term potential. *Outstanding*" (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine René Leclerc Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Combe Aux Moines" (91BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Deeply colored. Here the wood is almost completely absorbed if not actually invisible as it highlights relatively elegant and notable ripe earthy red and black pinot fruit aromas that precede rich, powerful and wonderfully complex broad-shouldered flavors brimming with dry extract that make this seem less structured than it really is. There is less minerality present than in the Cazetiers but as in '06, there is more length. *Outstanding* " (01/2008)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine René Leclerc Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Lavaux St. Jacques" ((90-93BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is cut from the same terroir cloth as the Champeaux with its upper register and lacy red berry fruit aromas trimmed in obvious mineral and stone notes that continue onto the focused, precise and vibrant middle weight flavors that offer super delineation on the ripe cassis and black cherry-infused finish. This has just a touch more depth of material but the two wines are almost qualitatively equal possess different characters. *Outstanding* " (01/2007)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Tortochot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru. Until the last 10 years or so, Domaine Tortochot was one of the most underrated finds in the Côte d'Or, which is a shame because Gabriel Tortochot was a supremely talented winemaker. The skills he passed on to his children are evident in the domaine's wines today.
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Occidental (Kistler) "Freestone-Occidental" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (95RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Pinot Noir Freestone-Occidental comes mostly from younger vines at the Occidental property but is made with the same attention to detail as the other wines in the portfolio, using free-run juice. Its nose is an aromatic well, offering crushed blueberries, charcuterie, Earl Grey tea leaves, graphite, saline, bitter orange peel and potpourri aromas. In the mouth, it explodes with lush fruits that give way after their initial rush to bitter, citrusy, minerally accents. It has a fine grain, seamless freshness and long, layered finish. It's enjoyable now but will age well over the next five to eight-plus years. (EB) 95+" (07/2020)
Starting Bid: $227.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Vincent Girardin Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru "La Romanée" (94RP, (90-93BH), (90-93VN)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Quintessence de Corton-Charlemagne was one of the most introverted wines in the range when I revisited it from bottle, unwinding to reveal scents of pear, white flowers, confit citrus and a delicate top note of petrol. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a deep and intensely concentrated core, but it's still very reserved after its recent bottling. Some patience will be in order here, though at maturity, I'm sure my score will look conservative. (WK) 94+" (02/2020)
Starting Bid: $367.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Dominique Lafon Volnay 1er Cru "Les Lurets" (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most impressive of the reds I tasted is, without question, the 2010 Volnay Lurets. It has the energy of the straight Volnay, but with much more fruit, density and ripeness. Dark red berries, mint, flowers, wet stones and spices blossom on the extroverted, hugely delicious finish. The 2010 boasts serious power, depth and balance. I loved it. (AG)" (08/2012)
Starting Bid: $300.00
