Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (95RP, 95VN, 94ST, 94WS). Vinous: "One of the more open, seductive wines in the range, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard comes across perfumed and juicy today, with less of the structure I saw when the wine was in barrel. Heart Stone is 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache, and it is the Grenache that seems to front and center in this tasting. It will be interesting to see how the 2010 develops over the coming years. Will it continue to be Grenache-dominated, or is the wine simply in a phase where the Syrah elements are a bit subdued? Time will tell. (AG) 95+" (07/2013)

Bid on this magnum of 2013 Cayuse "Wallah Wallah Special #5" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (1.5L) (OWC - 96RP, 93VN, 93WE) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most complete, layered and elegant 2013s from Cayuse is the 2013 Syrah Walla Walla Special #5, which is made from two separate parcels that remind Christophe of the northern Rhone’s Jamet brother’s Cote Rotie. He also keeps the price low as a thank you to his customers. Giving up classic cool climate notes of green olives, black cherries, scorched earth, ash and ripe herbs, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, no hard edges, incredibly fine tannin and a finish that just keeps going. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking it today, but it will be better with 4-5 years of cellaring and have two decades or more of overall longevity. (JD)" (06/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Giuseppe Rinaldi "Brunate-Le Coste" Barolo (96VN, 94JS, 93RP, 93ST, 93WS, 92WE). Vinous: "Dark cherries, plums, cloves, violets, incense, orange rind and tobacco meld together in the 2009 Barolo Brunate-Le Coste. A massive, powerful Barolo, the 2009 boasts stunning depth, power and richness, all in a relatively open style for this estate. I imagine the 2009 will drink well relatively early for top-flight Barolo, but it has fabulous class and intensity. (AG)" (10/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1966 Warre's Vintage Port (91WS). Wine Spectator: "There is still plenty of fresh, youthful fruit here. Medium ruby-red, with an intense floral and berry nose, medium-bodied, with rich, sweet fruit flavors, medium tannins and a lingering finish. Very good fruit. (JS, Web Only—1989)"
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1998 Leonetti Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95WE, 93RP, 93WS, 91ST). Wine Enthusiast: "Here again the 1998 vintage shows its forward, fat, fruity, lip-smackingly luscious qualities right out in front. This is a meaty, oaky Cab, with firm, tongue-lashing tannins, plenty of red berry/cassis fruit and a power-packed profile from top to bottom. It’s delicious and strong, with coffee, bitter chocolate and licorice lining the extended finish. (PG)" (10/2001)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94JS, 92JD, 92VN, 90WS). James Suckling: "Lots of the blue fruits and dried flowers on the nose. Oyster shell too. Medium to full body, linear and vibrant. Energetic. Clean and intense finish. " (05/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 2017 Domaine du Clos de Tart Clos de Tart Grand Cru (1.5L) ((96-98VN), (93-95RP)). Vinous: "The 2017 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was matured in around 80% new oak, the barrels toasted chauff blonde. Jacques Desvauges mentioned that the wine needed oxygen ingress during maturation that only new oak can give. I tasted the component parts (as usual) as well as the blend. This has a very detailed, delineated bouquet offering mainly black fruit mixed with sous-bois, tobacco, clove and bay leaf, the typicité of the appellation showing through nicely. It feels very succinct and yet so fresh. The palate is beautifully balanced on the entry with a killer line of acidity. Pure black cherry fruit is joined by bilberry, hints of black olive and a marine/oyster shell tincture that comes through quite strongly toward the persistent, saline finish, which fans out with confidence. This is a brilliant follow-up to the benchmark 2016 by Jacques Desvauges and his team. (NM)" (01/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Saxum "Heart Stone" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, (95-97RP), 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scheduled for bottling in June, the 2016 Heart Stone Vineyard offers up a pretty bouquet of dried flowers and wild berries, framed by incipient savory bass notes. On the palate, it's full-bodied, fine-grained and elegant, with bright, crunchy fruit flavors, excellent concentration and a long, perfumed finish. This is the only wine in the Saxum cellar that comes from the Adelaida District on the western side of Paso Robles. The 2016 is a blend of 51% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 13% Mataro, 6% Petite Sirah and 3% Touriga Nacional. It's being matured in 37% new puncheons, 53% large amphorae and the balance in used wood. (WK)" (05/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Memento Mori Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Winemaker and proprietor Sam Kaplan is behind this absolutely brilliant 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is a composite blend from three famous Napa vineyards B Weitz, Las Piedras, and Dr. Crane, the last two owned by the ubiquitous and omnipresent Andy Beckstoffer. A wine of great intensity, voluptuous, full-bodied texture, tremendous blueberry and blackberry fruit, with white flowers, charcoal embers and spice, the wine has superb texture, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that goes on for close to 50 seconds. The tannins are creamy and ripe, and the wine irresistible already. Drink it over the next 30 years. This is brilliant! (RP)" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $510.00

Bid on this bottle of 1978 Henri Jayer Vosne-Romanée. Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Remarkably, the color is still quite dark with only marginal bricking and the nose took a solid 20 minutes before it really began to open and evolve, leading to rich, complex and quite long flavors of excellent depth and length for a villages level wine. " (09/1995)
Starting Bid: $3,600.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2012 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend ((96-98RP), 97JS, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012s made from Bordeaux varietals include their flagship wine, the 2012 Proprietary Red Les Pavots, a sensational blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. A prodigious effort, it rivals some of the fabulous past vintages such as 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2007. The inky/purple-colored 2012 boasts classic notes of crème de cassis, roasted coffee, vanilla bean, cedar, forest floor and blueberries. Full-bodied and complex with sweet tannin as well as hints of charcoal and camphor, this opulent, multi-leveled, Bordeaux-styled 2012 can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30+ years. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2015 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (94VN, 92JG, 92RP). Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a total knock-out. Rich, explosive and forward, the 2015 possesses striking fruit intensity and purity in every dimension. Dark red and bluish-hued fruits and ripe, silky tannins add to the wine's immediacy. This is an especially plush style for Rhys, but it works beautifully. The 2015 will be even better in another few years, but it will prove virtually impossible to resist young. (AG)" (08/2017)

Starting Bid: $30.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Shakti" California Grenache (100RP, 97JD, 96VN). Robert Parker's 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. (L

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les St-Georges" ((92-95VN), (92-94BH), 92RP). Vinous: "Bright, dark red. Lovely class and lift to the aromas of dark raspberry, bitter cherry, flowers, minerals and crushed stone. Urgent red and purple fruit flavors show outstanding penetration and delineation yet come across as remarkably refined and smooth. A salty character adds another dimension to the very long, vibrant, backward finish. Delivers the outstanding density without weight that I associate more with grand crus. (But then the long process initiated by a number of owners of this vineyard to have Les Saint-Georges elevated to grand cru status has been underway for several years already.) (ST)" (01/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Cayuse "En Chamberlin Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (94WS, 92RP, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "Plush and dense with exotic spice and stone overtones to the plum and cherry flavors, a mouthfilling red that coats the palate with soft, silky tannins and then drenches it with flavor. The finish sails on and on. *Highly Recommended* (HS)" (06/2006)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1982 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (98DC, 98JS, 97JG, 96ST, 95RP, 95WS). James Suckling: "This is a phenomenal 1982 and it remains the most drinkable of the first growths. A strong iodine character here enveloped by delicious currants, shaved chocolate and spices. Full body with super-integrated tannins and a refined texture. Wonderful balance." (06/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Purlieu "Beckstoffer George III Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Lisa Perrotti-Brown in the Wine Advocate: "'With Purlieu, I’m trying to bring something that is of Napa Valley standard, while making it a little more modern,' winemaker Julien Fayard told me as I sat to taste his 2017s. Having been blown away by his 2016s and 2015s for this label, I was very keen to see how he performed given all the challenges of 2017. “In 2017 at least 30-40% of the wines were culled due to smoke taint,” he informed me. While it was clear that, like the rest of the valley, Fayard was thrown a curve ball in 2017, in the end I think he managed it admirably." (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Kistler "Cuvée Cathleen" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay (99RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Cuvée Cathleen Chardonnay comes from a rockier block of the Kistler Vineyard, possessing a lot of broken shale and planted predominately to Wente clone selection with a bit of Mount Eden clone. This wine is a 20-barrel cuvée selection from the best of that block. The 2014 Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen has a youthfully subdued nose of pebbles and wet slate over a core of grapefruit, peach blossoms and mandarin peel, plus the faintest hint of fresh herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is restrained at this early stage, offering tightly wound citrus and mineral notes off-set by refreshing acidity. It finishes long and multi-layered. It is tempting to drink now, but I’d give it 2-3 years for that real 'wow' experience and drink it over the next decade or more. (LPB)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1997 & 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie ((88-90RP)) and 1-bottle of 2000 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90ST). Of the 1997 Ogier Côte-Rôtie,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 1997 Cote Rotie may turn out to be outstanding. It displays a deep purple color, a sweet nose of smoke, pine needles, blackberry/cassis fruit, and a floral note. The wine has medium body, outstanding purity, a low acid, opulent texture, and admirable depth and length. Although some tannin is present, this beauty will drink well young, and last for 12-15 years. (RP)" (02/1999)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94RP, 93DC, 92ST, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the finest Opus Ones to date, offering a dark ruby/purple color, as well as a striking, intense bouquet of sweet licorice intermixed with blackberries, cassis, plums, and saddle leather. This seamless, full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured, opulent, and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy. The long finish is filled with glycerin, ripe fruit, and sweet tannin. Drink this impressive, user-friendly yet richly concentrated effort over the next 15 years. (RP)" (01/2000)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1967 Ausone, St-Emilion (90VN). Vinous: "The 1967 Ausone was one of the pleasant surprises of the tasting although that was not totally unexpected because the wines proved much better on the Right Bank than the Left Bank this year. It has a fascinating, well defined bouquet with blackberry, leather and camphor, touches of black truffle emerging with time. You have to commend the vigour here after more than half a century. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and impressive density. Fresh and lively, yet unapologetically 'old school,' it displays fine length with a savoury, meaty, desiccated orange peel finish that completes a very decent 1967 Saint-Émilion. Tasted at the Ausone vertical in London. (NM)" (03/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1963 Quinta do Noval Vintage Port (Hedges & Butler) (94JG). John Gilman: "While the legendary ’63 Nacional is rightfully the first wine Port lovers think of when this vintage is mentioned at Quinta do Noval, one should not forget that in this great year the lodge produced two profound wines, not only one! The ’63 Quinta do Noval is a stunning bottle of Port that is at its absolute apogee of peak maturity, but still has decades and decades of life ahead of it. The gorgeous nose wafts from the glass in a blend of black cherries, fresh-culled mint, lovely soil tones, a touch of nuttiness and a gentle topnote of meatiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and gloriously complex, with a great core of fruit, a very powerful personality for mature Quinta do Noval, moderate tannins and stunning length and grip on the beautifully focused and quite tangy finish. This is a great drink already, but it may yet improve with further bottle age. It is one of the

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Domaine Arnaud Ente Meursault (1.5L) (91JG, 91VN). Vinous: "(aged in two-year-old foudres and a single new barrel, which Ente referred to as "insignificant"): Complex scents of lemon, orange oil, nutmeg and mace, plus a hint of leesy hazelnut; a real essence of fresh village Meursault. Wonderfully suave and alive on the palate, with peach and orange flavors given a piercing quality by an element of dusty stone. Finishes bracing and long, with lovely salinity. (Ente's 2014 Bourgogne Chardonnay, while not as squeaky-clean as the 2015 version, delivers a tactile texture and lovely energy and lift to its flavors of lemon, lime and toasted-bread leesiness. It's an exceptional Bourgogne Blanc.) (ST)" (09/2016)
Starting Bid: $730.00

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Azienda Agricola Valentini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Valentini is an historic estate in Abruzzo, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest producers in all of Italy. Above all, it is known for its white wine made from the Trebbiano grape, but its Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is one of Italy's most expensive wines. The Valentini family, originally hailing from Spain, has been in Abruzzo for centuries, but had little to do with winemaking until 1950, when Eduardo Valentini took a more active role in the business and became known in the region as "The Lord of the Vines". On his death in 2006, his son Francesco took over, and continued the estate's traditionalist approach to both winemaking and marketing. Valentini makes just three wines – a white Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, a red Montepulciano, and a Cerasuolo rosé, all of which are made in small quantities and are highly collectable.
Starting Bid: $225.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noëllat Vougeot 1er Cru "Les Petits Vougeot". Vinous: "Good bright red. Deep aromas of cherry, stone and menthol. Round but classically dry, with an intriguing saline character and good lift from calcaire Finishes with good grip and length. This hard-to-ripen site clearly benefited from the warmth of the 2009 growing season. (ST)" (01/2011)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 1992 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 94DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This was a magical showing for the 1992 Monte Bello—and the best bottle I've ever encountered. At age 26, the wine is still stunningly vibrant and youthful, bursting from the glass with a classic bouquet of cassis, blackberries, black truffles, gravelly soil and pencil shavings. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and utterly complete, with superb concentration and energy, its richly layered mid-palate framed by fine-grained, satiny tannins, concluding with a long, sapid finish. Above all, it stands out for its seamless balance and delineation. While for many years the more flashy and dramatic 1991 stole the limelight, as the dust settles, the deeper, more complex 1992 has emerged as the greater wine and one of Ridge's true classics. (WK)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $315.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - (97-98JS), 97WE, 96WS, 95CG, 94RP, 93VN) in original wood. James Suckling: "This is mind blowing stuff. Notes of mint, minerals, currants, blackberries, with hints of cedar. Full bodied, very velvety and chewy. This won't be out until 2013. Winemaker believes this could be the best one yet, and I have to agree." (02/2011)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Pruliers" (94JG, (92-94RP), (90-93BH), 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers is slightly deeper in color than Chevillon’s other 2013s. The bouquet is one of his most sophisticated, with mineral-infused red and black fruit intermingling, almost crystalline in purity. The palate is harmonious straight from the off, replete with filigree tannins, well-judged acidity and a tense, rocky, structured finish that lingers long in the mouth. This will deserve several years aging - one of Bertrand and Denis's best contributions to the vintage. (NM)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Peter Michael "Ma Belle-Fille" Knights Valley Chardonnay (98RP, 97JS, 94VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bursting forth with extravagant tropical and floral notes, the 2015 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille has nuances of honey-nut pastry (baklava), ginger, cedar and spice cake. Medium-bodied, the pineapple and passionfruit flavor layers are lifted by a seamless backbone and supported with a decadent creaminess, finishing long and spicy. (LPB) 98+" (10/2017)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Leon Barral "Cuvée Valiniere" Faugères (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Mourvèdre and Syrah, the 2014 Valiniere is a bit richer and darker-fruited than the Jadis but not otherwise more impressive. The fruit is plummy, the wine full-bodied on the palate, but it remains silky-textured and long. These were two outstanding offerings from the talented Didier Barral. (JC)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Italian Red Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2004 Luciano Sandrone Dolcetto d'Alba and 2-bottles of 2004 Renato Corino "Arborina" Barolo (94WS, 93RP, 93VN). Of the 2004 Renato Corino "Arborina" Barolo,Wine Spectator writes: "Shows strawberry tart on the nose, with violet and lavender undertones. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. All in balance and beauty. (JS)" (06/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that needs to be forgotten in the cellar for 5-6 years, the 2011 Syrah Patine checks in as a blend of roughly 97% Syrah and the balance Roussanne and Viognier. It too comes all from the estate's Eleven Confessions Vineyard and saw 39 months in 63% new French oak. Backward, tight, concentrated and structured, with full-bodied richness and depth, it gives up Guigal La Landonne like aromas and flavors of graphite, sweet oak, smoked meats, pepper and black raspberry and cassis-like fruit. While it shows the vintage's cooler nature, it has a stacked mid-palate and will evolve gracefully for 15-20 years. (JD)" (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $690.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (98JS, 98VN, 95RP, 94ST). Vinous: "There's not much to say about Randy Dunn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain that I haven't already said or written. A classic Howell Mountain Cabernet, the 2010 hits the palate with scents of graphite, pencil shavings, inky blue/purplish fruit, sage and spices, all backed up with swaths of broad yet impeccably balanced tannins. What a fascinating contrast it is to taste this next to David Abreu's Thorevilos as we round out the evening. The Dunn is powerful, structured and incisive, with magnificent expression of site and fabulous overall balance. Dunn’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain will go down as one of the great wines of this vintage. Readers have to be patient, but there is no question the 2010 is a real stunner. Knowing how hard it will be to wait, I expect the 2010 will start to open up around age ten. (AG) 98+" (06/2015)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Rougeot Meursault "Sous la Velle". Since 2010, Pierre-Henri Rougeot has been making low-intervention, organic wines at his family's estate. His wines are at the forefront of natural winemaking yet retain the best of Burgundian tradition. According to the importer the Sous la Velle is 100% Chardonnay and organic. "Sourced from over 55-year-old vines on a 2.5 hectare 'Sous la Velle' climat. The vineyard is located at the foot of the Meursault hill, opposite the Chateau de Meursault. It means 'Under the village.' In that part of Meursault, we find much richer soils and less limestone. Hand-harvesting, direct pneumatic pressing in whole bunches untrimmed, cold settling for 2 days, alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts and malolactic fermentation in barrels. A long maturation in oak barrels for 18 months (15% new). No batonnage."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Knights Valley Chardonnay (98RP, 94VN, 92WS).

(RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1991 Diamond Creek "Red Rock Terrace MicroClimate 3" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94WS). Wine Spectator: " *Cellar Selection* Spicy, peppery, bursting with currant and jammy blackberry fruit, marvelously dense and deep, flashing all sorts of nuances to make it interesting, all of it centered around the concentrated fruit. Muscular enough to want until 2000-2005 to settle down. 50 cases made." (11/1993)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 100RP, 98VN, 97JS, 97ST, 96WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Harlan Estate reminds me of a hypothetical blend of the 2002 with a touch of the controversial 1997. Dense plum/purple-colored with sweet aromas of barbecue smoke, blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, hot rocks and subtle oak, it is a splendidly opulent, pure wine with a skyscraper-like texture as well as stunningly deep fruit that expands gracefully across the palate. The finish lasts nearly a full minute. Because of its overwhelming richness and sweet tannins, this brilliant wine seems to be approachable now, but I suspect further nuances and complexity will emerge after 4-5 years in the bottle. This wine will still be going strong at age 25-30. Like the offerings from its sister estate, Bond, these Harlan Estate offerings are uncompromisingly brilliant examples of Napa viticulture and winemaking

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Grace Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of black fruits, violet, tobacco, licorice, minerals, nuts and earth. Lush, rich and sweet, with an intriguing smoky character and lovely lightness for a wine with so much breadth and volume. Unusually powerful and deep for this bottling; complex and distinctive. In a rather Old World style, with complex soil tones currently dominating primary fruitiness. Finishes broad and dry, with very lush, fine tannins. A superb vintage for this estate. Winemaker Brookman noted that this was a large crop but the team made three separate passes through the vines to reduce the crop level and then harvested later than ever here. The Grace wine was once aged in all new barrels but as of 2005 that percentage has been cut to 80% to 85%. (ST)" (06/2008)
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Ogier Côte-Rôtie (90RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ogier's regular cuvee of Cote Rotie sees about 25-30% new oak. It spends 18 months in barrel, and over 70% of the grapes emerge from their holdings on the Cote Blonde. The 1998 Cote Rotie exhibits scents and flavors of charred earth, smoke, minerals, and cassis. The wine is full-bodied, rich, and dense, with abundant tannin in the finish. The French might call it a true vin de garde. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for 15-18+ years. This wine is bottled with no filtration. (RP)" (02/2001)

Of the 1998 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend,Vinous writes: "Next to the 1997, the 1998 Opus One is naturally a bit slender, but it, too, boasts striking balance. Savory herbs, mint, licorice and plums are woven together in a fabric of notable class. Still young and vibrant, the 1998 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade. The focus, length and persistence are all super-impressive, especially within the context of a challenging vintage. The 1998 is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (06/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1969 Gaja Barbaresco. This Barbaresco is from the region's earlier beginnings as a serious red wine appellation. For the most part, Barbaresco was pretty much living in near total obscurity until the 1960s, when Giovanni Gaja (Angelo's father) began proving what could come of these vineyards. In the '70s, his son Angelo introduced single-vineyard offerings, and the rest is Italian wine history!

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Seven Stones Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95VN, 91RP). Vinous: "A beautifully perfumed, expressive wine, 2011 is drop-dead gorgeous. This is an unusually deep, seamless wine for the year. Mocha, tobacco, espresso and licorice wrap around a core of intense fruit in a textured wine loaded with class. The 2011 shows just how well certain hillside sites fared in 2011. Winemaker Aaron Pott used 15% Cabernet Franc in the blend, and the signature savory-floral Franc aromatics are really popping today.

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1999 Alain Voge Cornas Vieilles Vignes ((90-91RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is a star of the vintage. It is a black/purple-colored, dense, full-bodied offering with gobs of smoky blackberry fruit and scorched earth notes. It should be drinkable young, yet keep for 15+ years. (RP)" (02/2001)

Bid on this bottle of 1971 Biondi-Santi (Tenuta Greppo) Brunello di Montalcino. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Biondi Santi is a renowned name across the world, yet it remains an anachronistic wine, at odds with the vogue for rich, fruit-laden Brunello's that are lavished in new oak. Since the 19th century, the estate's raison d'être has been to fashion long-lasting wines, built to age over a century." (Producer Profile) and "A visit to Il Greppo is always fascinating, as the estate is literally packed with history at every corner. The old casks, some of which date to the late 1800s, the collection of rare bottles and the impeccably clean, traditionally outfitted cellar are all worth a look. " (05/2011)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2013 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (93RP, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much more upfront and ready to go than the Santa Lucia Highlands releases, the deep ruby colored 2013 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley offers tons of juicy berry fruits, spice, underbrush and floral characteristics in its medium to full-bodied, supple, voluptuous personality.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 98WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Materium exhibits an even more opaque purple color, and ratchets up the level of intensity and aromatic complexity. Blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, and cassis aromas intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, spring flowers, and toasty new oak are found in this beauty. Outstanding intensity along with full-bodied power and beautifully integrated acids, tannins, alcohol, and wood suggest this 2007 should hit its peak in 5-7 years, and evolve for three decades or more.

Bid on this magnum of 1997 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (97DC, 95RP, 93VN, 90ST). Decanter: "At the peak of its powers, the 1997 Howell Mountain is bursting with black fruit, graphite, wood smoke and hints of tar and truffle. On the palate the wine is rich, plush and generous but well balanced, with great length and depth. A certain suppleness nods to the vintage's warmth, but that's by no means unwelcome in this typically firm-framed cuvée. (WK)"

Bid on this 2-half-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Joseph Roty Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Très Vieilles Vignes (375ml) (97RP, 96VN, 94BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru Très Vieilles Vignes is showing superbly from bottle, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet in which notes of blackcurrants, cherries, spiced plums and dark chocolate mingle with nuances of peony, orange rind and grilled meats. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and dense, with a layered and immensely concentrated core that largely conceals the wine's rich structuring tannins, concluding with a long, resonant finish. This Charmes' precision and definition rank it a touch higher than the domaine's 2015, though it would be fascinating to taste the two side-by-side. (WK)" (01/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Michael Mallard Corton Grand Cru "Les Renardes" ((92-94RP), 93BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Corton les Renardes Grand Cru has a composed bouquet, here the fruit profile a little darker than the Corton Maréchaudes, though just as delineated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannin on the entry. There is plenty of crunchy red and black fruit here, not as elegant as Maréchaudes, but clearly with good structure on the finish. What a superb 2015 Corton from Michel Mallard. (NM)" (12/2016)
