Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1995 Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Founded in 1973 by Jack and Dolores Cakebread, it was expanded in 1982 through the purchase of adjacent land. Cakebread now has 15 estate vineyards, considered the optimal size, and has not grown any more since 2005. The winery produces around 175, 000 cases a year. The goal in the vineyard is to get fully ripe grapes, but with a lower value Brix to ensure a more restrained style of wine for which Napa is known.
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96RP, 96VN, 94ST, 93WS). Vinous: "Dark red plums, exotic spices, crushed flowers, menthol and new leather are some of the nuances that blossom as the 2011 James Berry Vineyard opens up in the glass. The use of 33% whole clusters adds texture and aromatic complexity in a wine that impresses for its purity. Some of the Grenache was done in concrete, which allows the true personality of the fruit to shine. Hints of tar, game and licorice meld into the expressive finish. (AG)" (07/2014)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Johnson Turnbull Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This light to medium-bodied, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon offers an intense nose of mint, red currants, and spicy oak. There is fine ripeness, balance, and grace, well-integrated acidity, and a clean, fresh finish." (04/1995)
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this bottle of 1981 Niebaum-Coppola "Rubicon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. Wine Spectator: "Rich and supple with mature currant, spice, chocolate and raspberry fruit that's quite lively. The palate is supple and smooth with firm, slightly bitter tannins that need to be resolved." (11/1988)
Starting Bid: $101.88

Bid on this bottle of 1974 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 94DC, 93VN, 92JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose is very expressive, a bouquet with open arms, touches of molasses once again, peppermint, nutmeg and hint of lemongrass. Beautiful definition. The palate is medium-bodied, very fine tannins, perhaps more so than the 1976 although it does not have quite the same depth of concentration and complexity. But there is a compelling core of dates, spice, cooked meats, citrus lemon and candied orange peel. This is as good as any mature Claret I have tasted of similar age. Awesome. (NM)" (06/2009)
Starting Bid: $285.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Rossignol-Trapet Chambertin (95JG, 92BH, 92RP, 91VN). John Gilman: "The 2013 Chambertin from the Rossignol brothers is another absolutely stellar young grand cru in the making, offering up a pure and youthful aromatic constellation of cassis, dark berries, grilled meat, cocoa, a superbly complex base of soil tones, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a rock solid core of fruit, great soil inflection, ripe tannins and great focus and grip on the very long, tangy and very youthful finish. All this brilliant wine needs is time. 95+" (11/2014)
Starting Bid: $365.00

Bid on this bottle of 1988 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Spectator: "Deep, rich and complex, with a supple array of spicy black cherry, plum and wild berry flavors and smooth, polished tannins. Gains on the finish, picking up chocolate and vanilla flavors. (JL)" (11/1998)
Starting Bid: $150.01

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Caymus "Napa Valley Cuvée" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. By the mid-1980s Caymus had established a reputation for wines of the highest quality, due largely to the Midas touch of Randall Dunn. In 1984, and for the following few years, the lineup expanded to include a "Napa Cuvée" sourced mainly from purchased fruit to offer Caymus fans a more approachable and wallet-friendly alternative to their big reds. This third red was short-lived however; in 1988 the purchased fruit went to the Napa Valley bottling and a larger portion of the estate fruit went to the Special Selection to up the quality level. This Cuvée is therefore, is a little piece of Caymus history.
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Spätlese .
Starting Bid: $237.00

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Sandhi "Bentrock Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (1.5L).
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (95CG, 94VN, 92JD, 91DC, 90WS). Connoisseurs Guide: "Sporting a deep mix of dark fruits that runs from cassis to blackberries along with complexing elements of cocoa and earthy spice, this year's edition of the Ridge Geyserville evokes all the accustomed richness that we have come to expect. It is a well-extracted and eminently ageworthy offering whose tannic, youthfully tight structure warrants a wait, but its astringency is never out of bounds and its insistently fruity finish is the hallmark of a wine guaranteed to repay five or more years of keeping with great dividends. *Three Stars*" (05/2017)
Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Schäfer-Fröhlich Bockenauer Felseneck Riesling Trocken Grosse Gewachs.
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this magnum of 1994 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (91WS). Wine Spectator: "Dark, plush and concentrated, with a decided coconut and oak accent mixed with complex plum and berry flavors. Finishes with a rich, focused, generous aftertaste, with fine length. Deftly balanced. (JL)" (11/2004)
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Franck Balthazar "Chaillot" Cornas (96VN, 92W&S). Vinous: "Inky ruby. An alluringly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, candied licorice, exotic spices and incense, and shows a bright mineral topnote. Stains the palate with intense, spice-laced blackberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors that deepen and become sweeter with aeration. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and finesse and finishes extremely long and spicy, with smooth tannins sneaking in late. (JR)" (04/2018)
Starting Bid: $181.00

Bid on this magnum of 2018 Walter Scott "X Novo Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay (1.5L).
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Bacio Divino "Janzen - Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 95JS, 95WE, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Virtually perfect, and a California verison of Haut-Brion or La Mission Haut-Brion is the absolutely remarkable 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon. There are 250 cases of this prodigious wine, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from this site. Loads of scorched earth, burning embers/charcoal, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass along with some floral notes. Quite full-bodied, it offers sweet tannin, low acidity, and a fleshy, rich finish of close to a minute. The tannins are there, but they are wonderfully sweet and integrated. This is a fabulous effort from the Jenzen family. (RP)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Alexandra" Brut Rosé Champagne (OWC - 96VN, 95JS, 95RP, 95WE, 94DC, 94ST, 93W&S, 93WS) in original wood. Vinous: "Tasted from magnum, the 2004 Grande Cuvée Rosé Alexandra, Laurent-Perrier’s flagship Rosé is a blend of 80% Pinot Noir (on the skins) and 20% Chardonnay vinified together that has only been bottled seven times since 1982. From the very first taste, the 2004 is utterly spectacular. Rich, ample and vertical in feel, the 2004 is dazzling. Dried rose petal, star anise, tobacco, dried flowers, red berry fruit and earthy notes all grace this utterly exquisite Champagne. As good as the 2004 is today – and it is fabulous – it will be even better in another few years’ time. The 2004 has been nothing short of magnificent on both occasions I have tasted it so far. (AG)" (07/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1978 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 1-bottle of 1979 Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP). Of the 1979 Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 1979 Cabernet Sauvignon, made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot, is pale brick in color with a drop-dead sexy nose of dried flowers, raspberry preserves and preserved plums with hints of sandalwood, oolong tea and dusty soil. The palate is medium-bodied and very fresh and elegant in the mouth, with firm, grainy tannins and loads of mineral and perfumed layers, finishing long with dried red berries and earth layers. (LPB)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (98DC, 98JD, 98WS, 96VN). Wine Spectator: "Lots of cocoa powder and coffee frame a massive block of dark plum, black currant and fig fruit, while massively endowed tannins stride from start to finish. Cassis, anise and Lapsang souchong tea notes hang in the background for now, but should emerge more with extended cellaring. The very dark, almost brooding finish is dominated by charcoal-coated grip, but the purity still wins out in the end. A very, very large wine. *#4 on the Top 100 Wines of 2012* (JM)" (10/2012)
Starting Bid: $151.01

Bid on this bottle of 2013 O'Brien "Unrestrained Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Proprietary Red Unrestrained Reserve is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Only 125 cases were produced from winemaker David Yorgensen. This wine has unbelievable richness, and truly merits its name. Gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, white flowers, no evidence of wood, full-bodied unctuosity, super-purity, great density and richness make for a prodigious, even profound, drinking experience. The low acid and sweet, ripe tannin suggest drinking this wine over the next 10-15 years (RP)." (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru.
Starting Bid: $255.00

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Harlan "The Maiden" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (93RP, 93WS, 92ST, 91JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As outstanding as the 2008 is, it is eclipsed by the brilliant 2007 The Maiden, perhaps the finest second wine yet made here. Sweet tobacco leaf, fruitcake, creme de cassis, black currant and licorice aromas emerge from this round, opulent, voluptuously textured wine. It is very much in keeping with the 2007 vintage. (RP)" (12/2010)
Starting Bid: $208.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Odette Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93JS, 93VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits graphite, blackberry and cassis, chocolate and a touch of mineral in a full-bodied, layered and impressively pure style. It’s a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium. This is only a baby, but promises to hit its peak in 7-10 years and last 25-30. (RP) 95+" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $115.11

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Péby Faugères, St-Émilion (96JD, 96RP, 95JS, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the candidates for the wine of the vintage, the opaque purple/black 2012 Péby Faugères is stunningly concentrated, with gorgeous purity, an opulent black raspberry, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit spectrum, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and beautiful, velvety, integrated tannins. Amazingly, it is not showing much oak, even though it is aged 100% in new oak. This is a great and profound 2012 that is still youthful, but so impressive already and capable of evolving for two decades. It is 100% Merlot. (RP)" (04/2015)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP, 92VN). Vinous: "Good full medium red. Some very ripe notes as well as a black tea coolness to the rather claret-like aromas of dark berries, licorice, menthol, tobacco and balsamic cedar. Perhaps the silkiest vintage to this point of the tasting and distinctly Bordeaux-like in its texture and complexity, delivering complex flavors of red and darker fruits, mocha, spices and flowers. Barrett noted that the picking weather was "too hot in 1984, too cold in 1985 and just right in 1986." But the fruit in 1985 benefitted from very good hang time. A second bottle of nearly equal quality (91) showed a stronger note of cedary oak, which gave the finish a faint dryness. (13.5% alcohol) (ST)" (05/2019)
Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Orin Swift "Inside Out (Equinox VIII)" California Red Blend. The history of Orin Swift Cellars dates back to 1995 when, on a lark, David Swift Phinney went to Italy to spend a semester 'studying.' During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, and got hooked. A few more years of university led to graduation and eventually a job at Robert Mondavi Winery in 1997 as a temporary harvest worker. He decided that if he was going to work this hard, it would eventually have to be for himself; so in 1998 he founded Orin Swift Cellars ("Orin" is his father’s middle name and "Swift" is his mother’s maiden name). With two tons of Zinfandel and not much else, he spent the next decade making wine for others as well as himself and grew the company into a multinational brand, which now includes 300 acres of vineyards in the Southwest of France."
Starting Bid: $52.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1998 Chateau Potelle "VGS" Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Spectator: "Intense and rugged style, with earthy oak, leathery currant, mineral, sage and cedar flavors. (JL)" (10/2001)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Dalla Valle "Collina" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93VN). Vinous: "The 2012 Collina Dalla Valle is rich, deeply spiced and super-expressive. A gorgeous, open-knit wine, the 2013 captures all the signatures of this great vineyard and estate. Aromatically pure and nuance, with generous, vivid red-fleshed fruit, the 2012 is absolutely gorgeous today. Quite frankly, the 2012 Collina could stand head to head with many of Napa's flagship bottlings. It is every bit that good. (AG)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $82.00

Bid on this magnum of 2016 Myriad "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard - Elysian" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (100RP, 97JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Elysian gives up intense earthy notes of crushed rocks, iron ore, black truffles and fertile loam to begin, giving way to a stunning array of black fruits and floral scents—crushed black cherries, warm black berries, cassis, red roses and candied violets—with wafts of cigar box and pencil lead in the background. Full-bodied, rich and fantastically flamboyant in the mouth, the decadent fruit slowly grows on the palate to reveal layer upon layer of mineral, earthy and seductively spiced black fruits, finishing very long and wonderfully perfumed. This is Dr. Crane at its finest. (LPB)" (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $495.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne (98RP, 98VN, 97DC, 95ST, 92CG). Vinous: "The 2002 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a tremendous example of this vintage at its very best. A Champagne of vertical thrust and intensity, the 2002 is rich, opulent and hedonistic from the very first taste. Readers should expect a Rosé built on a huge core of fruit. Rose petal, passion fruit and exotic flowers add shades of dimension to the wine’s decidedly flamboyant personality. What a wine! (AG)" (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $1,039.00

Bid on this bottle of 1976 d'Yquem, Sauternes (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind in Bordeaux, the 1976 Château d'Yquem reaffirms its reputation as one of the great wines of the decade, although I would suggest that that 1971 and 1975 are the true pinnacles. However, in no way do I wish to slight this Sauternes. Deep and slightly burnished in color, it offers dried pineapple, barley sugar, almond and a cheeky puff of café latte. There is wonderful definition here. The palate is underpinned by nigh on perfect acidity with orange rind, mango, crème brûlée and minerals. As it fans out towards the finish, there is a tang of Seville orange marmalade, and though it does not quite possess the persistence of the 1975 Yquem, you will be craving for the next sip. At its peak now, enjoy this great Yquem over the next 20-30 years. (NM)" (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $466.88

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (98DC, 97RP, 97VN, 96JS, 95ST). Decanter: "As with the last time I drank this wine two years ago, it is still full of life and energy, with that classic Lafite quality of effortless drinkability. Utterly moreish, it has an amazing cinnamon-edged spice, rich and slightly exotic with brick-red colouring. To recap what we all know to have been a great season, 1982 saw a dry and mild spring, allowing an excellent flowering followed by a dry and hot summer with regular small showers and fresher nights in August. It was an easy harvest that saw an early and large crop, and in the vat rooms they say, it smelt of hot fruit jam. Baron Eric's memories say it all: 'The last day of harvest was a Friday and we knew right away how good the fruit in the tanks was. Everyone was in a great mood, the whole harvest felt like fun.' (JA)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $2,050.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1994 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99RP, 97ST, 95DC, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Christian Moueix and his talented winemaking team continue to rewrite the definition of a Napa Valley reference point wine. I have had a difficult time keeping the corks in my bottles of 1994 Dominus. Eight-thousand cases were produced from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. In this vintage, 174 days passed between bud break and the harvest, a remarkable period of time for any wine region in the world. The 1994 is a strikingly thick, compellingly rich wine with the texture of a great Pomerol, despite being made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon. RP)" (12/1997)
Starting Bid: $825.00

Bid on this bottle of 2017 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97JD, 97RP, 97VN). Vinous: "The 2017 Scarecrow Cabernet Sauvignon is stunning. Seamless on the palate, with remarkable depth and richness, the 2017 has so much to offer. Black cherry jam, blackberry, chocolate, licorice, spice and menthol build in a rich, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon that hits all the right notes. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well with only minimal cellaring. It is without question one of the wines of the vintage. (AG)" (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $500.00

Bid on this 6 liter of 2003 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (6L) (94RP, 92ST, 92W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the smallest crops to be included in the Ridge Monte Bello, only 32% of the production made it into the 2003, which is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. Out of barrel as well as post-bottling I liked this wine a lot, and it has changed very little from when I last tasted it in February, 2010. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with sweet black currant, blueberry, graphite, licorice and toasty vanillin aromas. The tannins are still noticeable in this full-bodied 2003, but seem reasonably well-integrated. (RP) 94+" (06/2013)
Starting Bid: $1,125.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Chaignots" (91BH, 91VN, 90RP). Vinous: "Good medium red. Sexy, complex aromas of ripe plum, redcurrant, cedar, spices and rose petal. Supple, plump, dry and saline; classically backward wine but with a surprisingly pliant texture for the year. Strong, almost peppery acidity is nicely buffered by intense red fruits. Finishes with sexy sweetness and length. (ST)" (03/2016)
Starting Bid: $911.00

Bid on this magnum of 2017 Schrader "Old Sparky" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (OWC - 98JD, 97JS, 96RP) in original wood. Jeb Dunnuck: "If I had to pick a wine of the vintage at this point, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard would certainly be one of the top choices. Always a barrel selection (mostly clone 6 and clone 4), it offers extraordinary notes of exotic blue fruits, white flowers, graphite, wet stone-like minerality, and loads of violets. Possessing full-bodied richness and depth, it hits the palate with loads of fruit and texture as well as seamless tannins and integrated acidity. As with the other top wines here, it has that magical mix of richness and elegance that’s the hallmark of all great wines. Aged 20 months in 100% new oak, it’s worth hiding bottles for 4-5 years and it’s going to evolve for 20-25 years or more." (01/2020)
Starting Bid: $779.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2018 Andremily "No. 7" Santa Barbara County Syrah ((97-100JD)). Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 86% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre, and the rest Viognier, 50% destemmed, the 2018 No 7 comes from a mix of top vineyards in Santa Barbara County and will spend 22 months in 65% new French oak. Inky hued, with a killer nose of bacon fat, charcoal, ground pepper, smoked game, and both black and blue fruits, it's deep and full-bodied, offering incredible purity of fruit, building tannins, and a great finish. It's another brilliant, brilliant wine in the making that's unquestionably in the same league as the 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. Don't miss it." (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $335.00

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Domaine Armand Rousseau Chambertin Grand Cru ((94-96RP), 96VN, 95BH, 95JG, 93ST). Vinous: "Rousseau's 2002 Chambertin is in the zone. Succulent, racy and open, the 2002 is ready to deliver pleasure. The purity of the fruit alone is striking. Even so, the 2002 is still very much at the early part of its first plateau of maturity, as the flavors remain very bright and fresh. In this vertical, the 2002 comes across as a wine of immediacy, with a bit less structure and overall energy than the very best vintages. I say that with some hesitation, as the 2002 is exceptional. It is just a little less exceptional than a few of the other wines in this vertical. (AG)" (08/2017)
Starting Bid: $3,100.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Perrot-Minot Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru ((92-94BH), (92-94RP), 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes is much more backward and laconic than the 2014 Griotte-Chambertin at this early stage. It is less fruit-driven but shows more stony/mineral aromas. The palate is smooth on the entry, quite precise with tart red cherries, fresh strawberry and a hint of vanilla pod. It starts to fan out on the mid-palate and then it clams back up towards the finish, suggesting that it deserves 4-5 years in bottle. Overall, it is very well crafted, quite cerebral Charmes-Chambertin from Christophe Perrot-Minot. (NM)" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $575.00

Bid on this 6-bottle tasting lot in original wood; including 3-bottles of 2015 Sine Qua Non "E - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (100RP, 100VN, 98JD) and 3-bottles of 2015 Sine Qua Non "M - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (99JD, 99RP, 98VN). Of the 2015 Sine Qua Non "E - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache, Vinous writes: "The 2015 Grenache E, from Elaine and Manfred Krankl’s Eleven Confessions Vineyard, is stunningly beautiful. Remarkably light on its feet for such a sumptuous wine, the 2015 has so much to offer. Beautifully expressive aromatics make a strong opening impression. Dark red and purplish berry fruit, mint, sweet spice and licorice develop with air, but it is the wine’s overall feel that stands out most. At times, the E is quite powerful, while in other moments it is much more delicate. That contrast makes for an utterly captivating wine. (AG)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $1,930.00

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Latour, Pauillac (100JS, 99VN, 99WS, 98RP, 98WE, 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)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (93JS, 92VN, 91WS). James Suckling: "A spicy Bordeaux with berries and hints of currants. Full, super round and soft – surrounded by vanilla and blueberry pie. Round and lovely. Just coming around now. Delicious." (03/2015)
Starting Bid: $1,053.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 100RP, 100VN, 96JS, 96WS) in original wood. Vinous: "As impossible as it might seem, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon takes things to another level. An exquisite, celestial bouquet melds into endless layers of fruit as this rich, voluptuous wine blossoms on the palate. Full-bodied and seductive, the 2007 conquers all of the senses with its head spinning, beautiful personality. As always, Screaming Eagle is a bit more restrained next to Napa Valley's other heavy hitters, yet the pedigree of this opulent vintage comes through in spades. A kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors flows through to the creamy, textured finish. I have tasted the 2007 several times recently and it has always been magnificent. The 2007 appears to be shutting down just a touch, but that is probably a good thing for the future. (AG)" (12/2012)
Starting Bid: $9,750.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1982 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1982 exhibits a medium to dark plum/garnet color, along with a spicy, spearminty, earthy set of aromatics that are sweet and attractive, but very mature. The wine is elegant and lighter-weight than most Insignia's with attractive sassafras and red and black plum and currant fruit. This interesting, good, fully mature wine should be drunk over the next 3-4 years. 1982, one of the famous El Nino years, experienced wet conditions during winter and spring, followed by a cool growing season. To complicate things even further, it rained during the harvest. This was never considered to be a high quality vintage, and for the most part, the wines have largely faded into oblivion.(RP)" (11/2013)

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)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1985 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94WS). Wine Spectator: "Distinct currant, cassis, cherry and vanilla flavors are elegant and well focused with harmonious tannins and subtle oak flavors around the edges. It's well balanced and very pretty, finishing with cassis-like flavors. *Top 100 Wines of 1988; Spectator Selection* " (12/1988)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2008 Charles Smith "Royal City" Columbia Valley Syrah (99RP, 98WE, 96WS), 1-bottle of 2009 Charles Smith "Royal City - Stoneridge Vineyard" Columbia Valley Syrah (98WE, 97WS), and 1-bottle of 2013 Charles Smith "Royal City - Stoneridge Vineyard" Columbia Valley Syrah (98RP, 96WE, 95WS). Of the 2008 Charles Smith "Royal City" Columbia Valley Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2008 Royal City Syrah was sourced from the Stoneridge Vineyard. It displays a soaring perfume of sandalwood, garrigue, lavender, smoke, bacon, game, blueberry, and black raspberry. Super-concentrated, it deftly marries power and elegance in a seamless wine that should see its 20th birthday in peak form. I met up with Charles at his new wine bar in Walla Walla before we drove out to the winery in his 1949 Cadillac, a picture of which is on the web-site (not the deluxe model like my grandfather used to drive).

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2009 Casa Lapostolle "Clos Apalta" Red Blend Colchagua Valley (96WS, 94JS, 93WE), 1-bottle of 2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina (98JS, 98RP, 94VN), and 1-bottle of 2012 Seña Red Blend Valle de Aconcagua (98JS). Of the 2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The nose of the 2012 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard almost made me fall from my chair. It is the expression of elegance and austerity coupled with strong minerality. It is mostly Cabernet Franc from a very chalky vineyard in Gualtallary at 1, 430 meters altitude that fermented together with a small percentage of Malbec. " (12/2016)
