Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Fattoria Galardi "Terra Di Lavoro" Roccamonfina (97RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Terra di Lavoro emerges from the glass with an array of floral red fruit, spices, berries and minerals. It is an especially forward, opulent Terra di Lavoro bursting with exuberance. There is something viscerally thrilling about the 2007, perhaps because Terra di Lavoro is typically so reticent when it is young. Not here. This is an open, wonderfully expressive vintage. The only thing left to wonder is if the wine will ever shut down in bottle. For now, readers who want to understand what makes Terra di Lavoro such a pedigreed wine may want to start here. Readers who prefer a firmer style will likely gravitate towards the 2006 or 2008, but this is a flat-out great bottle of wine with an explosive personality that carries through to the long, intensely satisfying finish. In 2007 the weather was consistently hot, but the 2007 doesn’t show the jamminess o

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Dominique Laurent Chambertin-Clos de Bèze Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes ((90-93ST)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red-ruby. Wild, musky aromas of red berries and animal fur; complex but slightly reduced. Very sweet and concentrated in the mouth, with musky red berry flavors lifted by a floral element. Pure, silky and seamless, even if it doesn't have the grip of the best examples from this grand cru. (ST)" (03/2004)

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 98ST, 98VN, 97DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. It has thrown off the backward, youthful style that existed during its first 25 years of life, and over the last 4-5 years has developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine is still amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Thank God it is beginning to budge, as I would like to drink most of my supply before I kick the bucket. This is a great, still youthful wine, and, on occasion, one does understand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see the complexity and brilliance of this first-growth. (RP)" (06/2009)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2013 Del Dotto Napa Valley Cabernet Franc. According to Robert Parker: "One of the bright, shining stars of Napa is David Del Dotto’s winery. His faux-Italian villa gets mixed reactions from the locals, but there’s no question that the wines are of impeccably high quality, and certainly world-class in every sense."

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2012 Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Maranges. Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is slightly more elegant if compositionally similar to that of the Bourgogne. There is an attractive mouth feel to the agreeably textured and rich medium weight flavors that also display some rusticity yet overall this is really very good for what it is. Worth considering as an all-around house red. *Top Value*" (04/2014)
Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2016 Ken Brown "A Cuvée" Santa Barbara County Syrah (92WE). Wine Enthusiast: "Hickory and cherry-wood-smoke aromas meet with roasted sausage and black pepper on the very dark and satisfying nose of this bottling. Roasted black-plum and violet flavors are lifted by peppery spice and a touch of caramel on the palate. (MK)" (08/2020)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this bottle of 1982 Angélus, St-Emilion. Wine Spectator: "Medium-garnet in color, with a ruby center. Pretty floral, berry and dried cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, with tobacco and fruit flavors. (JS)" (11/1998)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97IWR, 97JD, 97JS, 96RP, 96WE, 94W&S). James Suckling: "Really juicy and savory at the moment with beautiful freshness and linear tightness that frames the wine. It’s full and flavorful with currants, coffee and walnuts. Mahogany, too. The tannins are polished and spread across the palate. Accessible and hard not to drink now, but will age wonderfully, too." (06/2020)
Starting Bid: $330.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie (100JD, 100RP, 98WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another perfect wine is the 2009 Cote Rotie La Turque. It possesses a slightly denser purple color than the opaque Cote Rotie La Mouline as well as notes of Asian spices, roasted meats, bouquet garni, spring flowers, camphor and truffles. It is a different expression of Syrah as this comes from the more iron-laden soils of the Cote Brune. Although never as aromatic, precocious or enjoyable as La Mouline is in its youth, La Turque is, nevertheless, a remarkably concentrated, profound wine that is built like a skyscraper. It possesses a level of intensity and richness that must be tasted to be believed. (RP)" (12/2012)
Starting Bid: $360.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2018 Aubert "UV Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Aubert Pinot Noirs were bottled at the beginning of July 2019. Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2018 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard rolls out of the glass with intense notes of Morello cherries, rhubarb, raspberry pie, bouquet garni and lilacs with suggestions of Marmite toast, fungi, fragrant soil and forest floor. Full-bodied, the palate is packed with crunchy red berries plus loads of earthy accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with a wonderfully spicy kick. Delicious now, this should age incredibly well, generously rewarding those with enough patience to defer their gratification. 98+ (LPB)" (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $400.00

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Carter "Beckstoffer To Kalon - The O.G." Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 99RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The O.G. comes all from the 337 clone of Cabernet Sauvignon and, like all these wines, was brought up in new French oak. It's slightly more fresh, focused, and chiseled compared to the G.T.O and has building notes of blackcurrants, camphor, scorched earth, chocolate, and graphite, with a beautiful violet character coming through with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and powerful, with perfect balance between its fruit, tannins, acidity, and alcohol, it's a monumental Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to drink beautifully for 2+ decades." (01/2019)
Starting Bid: $230.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2013 Querciabella "Turpino" Toscana Rosso (92WS). Wine Spectator: "This evokes black currant, black cherry, olive, cedar, tobacco and licorice flavors. Though sleek, this remains concentrated and coats the palate on the long finish. (BS)" (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 2016 Wines Of Substance Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93JD, 92JS, 92RP, 90WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The largest production cuvée, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified in tank before being pressed to barrel where it went through malo. Aged 13 months in barrels, its vibrant purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blueberries, cassis, scorched earth, and spice. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three times the price." (04/2018)
Starting Bid: $98.00

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Camille Giroud Latricieres Chambertin Grand Cru ((90-93ST), 90WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Plum and raspberry fruit aromas are perked up by pungent minerality and complicated by saline and smoked meat nuances. Big, plush and broad but dry, with impressive volume leavened by spices. Finishes with dusty tannins and a surprising combination of sweetness and lift. This one has the highest VA of these 2007s today, at 0.7, according to Croix." (03/2009)
Starting Bid: $105.00

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Domaine Arnaud Ente Meursault (91JG, (88-90BH)). John Gilman: "The 2015 Meursault AC from Domaine Ente is another very pure and classy example of the vintage (sensing a theme here?), delivering an excellent nose of pear, apple, iodine, hazelnut, lovely minerality and a floral topnote redolent of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and very refined on the attack, with a juicy core and impressive backend mineral drive on the long and zesty finish. Like the Bourgogne Blanc, this is really giving and succulent at the outset and will deliver plenty of pleasure from release, but it is also impeccably balanced and will keep nicely. 91+" (11/2016)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Pride Mountain "Vintner's Select" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 92JD, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Select comes entirely from Napa County. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it springs from the glass with gregarious notes of baked red and black plums, warm cassis and black raspberries plus hints of dried Provence herbs, lilacs, menthol and clove oil with a waft of fragrant earth. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and refreshing, delivering compelling black fruit preserves with loads of red fruit sparks and a plush texture, finishing spicy. (LPB) 93+" (10/2020)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1999 Domaine du Clos Frantin (Bichot) Echézeaux Grand Cru. Domaine du Clos Frantin is a historic, 13-hectare domaine with cellars located in Nuits-St-Georges. Their Echezeaux is from a 0.99-hectare domaine holding in Champs Traversin. Domaine du Clos Frantin has been owned by négociant producer Albert Bichot since 1969.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Cayuse "Impulsivo" Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo (98JD, 95RP, 94DC, 94JS, 93WE, 92VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Impulsivo is all Tempranillo comes from the En Chamberlin Vineyard and was brought up in 50-60% new French oak. It's a deep ruby/purple-colored effort and reveals a stunning bouquet of cassis, black cherries, smoked earth, gravelly minerality, and cedary spice. Still tight, backward, and vibrant on the palate, it another one of the 2016s that's going to need 3-4 years of bottle age. 98+ " (04/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru "Les Mitans".
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this bottle of 1993 Domaine Lecheneaut Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Cailles" (90BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "While fully secondary there is no sous-bois to the attractively complex nose of spice, game, earth and a leathery character that can also be found on the delicious, intense and tautly muscular flavors that culminate in a lingering finish of good to very good but not truly special depth. While the tannins are largely resolved there is a certain amount of Nuits muscle that remains. " (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $102.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Perdrix Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Aux Perdrix" ((89-91RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromatically displaying violets, perfume (these two olfactory characteristics seem to be present in most of the wines made by or associated with the Maison Antonin Rodet in 1996), and blueberries, this wine has excellent intensity and concentration to its medium-to-full-bodied, highly-structured, and foursquare personality. Layers of blackberries, cassis, plums, black raspberries, and other dark fruits can be found in this superbly ripe offering. (PR)" (08/1998)
Starting Bid: $40.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Testa dei Cherubini" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (99JD, 98RP, 98VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the extended aged Syrah release, the 2014 Grenache Testa Dei Cherubini (80% Grenache, 15.5% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah and Viognier) comes all from the estate Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and spent just under 38 months in 25% new French oak, with the balance in neutral barrels (varying sizes). Layers of black raspberry, cassis, white chocolate, white flowers, and Asian spices flow to a full-bodied, supple, powerful Grenache that has silky, silky tannins, a seamless texture, no hard edges, and a finish that won’t quit. It’s already approachable, yet in my experience, this extended élevage results in a very stable wine, and I suspect this beauty will have another two decades of longevity." (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $675.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Jonata "La Sangre de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah (100JD, 96VN, 95RP, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better than the crazy-good 2007, the 2015 La Sangre de Jonata is sheer perfection in a glass and up with the finest Syrahs ever made in California! Checking in as a blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, aged in barrel, its saturated purple color is followed by out of this world aromatics black raspberries, smoked earth, graphite, game, violets and freshly crushed rock-like minerality. Possessing huge concentration, building tannin, and yet a seamless, ethereally pure texture, it needs 2-4 years of bottle age to become approachable. It is unquestionably the finest vintage for this cuvée today and hats off to the team at Jonata for this beauty! " (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 California Pinot Noir Tasting Lot, including 2-bottles of 2008 Belle Glos "Clark & Telephone" Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir (91WS) and 2-bottles of 2008 Siduri "Rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93WS, 91RP). Of the 2008 Siduri "Rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir,Wine Spectator writes: "Beautifully crafted, rich, intense and layered, with savory herb, dried berry, sassafras and subtle plum and black cherry flavors that build and grow on you, gaining length, depth and persistence. *Highly Recommended* (JL)" (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $110.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1994 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 95WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a very different bouquet to the 1996: lighter and minty, more red fruit than black fruit profile, raspberry, bergamot, a touch of leather coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, almost filigree tannins, harmonious, light and more Bordeaux like than other vintages with a little dryness coming through on the ferrous, honey-textured finish. This exudes style and panache. One of the greats of the decade, no doubt. (NM)" (11/2009)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Turley Zinfandel Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Buck" Cobb Vineyard Amador County Zinfandel (91RP), 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Dragon Vineyard" Howell Mountain Zinfandel (95RP, (91-94VN), 90WS), 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Duarte" Contra Costa County Zinfandel (91RP, 90VN), 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel (93RP, 93WS), 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Judge Bell" Amador Valley Zinfandel (94RP, 93VN), and 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Ueberroth" Paso Robles Zinfandel (95RP, 95WS, 94VN). Of the 2014 Turley "Dragon Vineyard" Howell Mountain Zinfandel,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2014 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard (15.9% alcohol) is from another Howell Mountain site where Turley has excelled. Beautiful floral notes intermixed with raspberry, black cherry, spice box and pepper are stunningly rich, long and heady. This is a real beauty, full-bodied, opulent and a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on. (RP)" (04/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Gargiulo "G Major 7 Study'' Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Winery notes: "G Major 7 Study Cabernet Sauvignon is blended from selected fruit off the 575 ovx vineyard and is named after a classic jazz guitar chord. Like its namesake, it is composed of four of the five classic Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and Merlot. G Major 7 is highly nuanced and provides a profound sense of elegance and complexity, changing with every swirl and sip. The nose reflects subtle floral notes, which develop into deep, crushed berry and earth flavors on the palate. Its tannins are refined and seamlessly integrated. The aging potential is 25 plus years."
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1977 Gould Campbell Vintage Port (97WS, (94-95RP)). Wine Spectator: "Amazing color. Dark ruby center, with just a hint of garnet. This is very impressive on the nose. Crushed raspberry, coffee, licorice and chocolate. Complex. What a palate. Big, rich and powerful, yet balanced and pleasing. Full, medium-sweet and caressing. Silky. Drink it for the rest of your life. Why wait? Underrated around the world. (JS, Web Only-2008)"
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Dana Estates "Hershey Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (98JD, 97JS, 96RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hershey Vineyard (this is the coolest site they work with) from Howell Mountain has a slightly fresher, more black fruit-driven style in its espresso, crushed rocks, scorched earth, and chocolate-tinged aromas and flavors. On the palate, it’s beautifully full-bodied and rich, with a seamless texture, perfectly integrated acidity and tannins, and a great finish. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age but is another thrilling wine." (01/2019)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (95RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very impressive, an unquestionably fine dry red. The outstanding, dark purple-colored 1996 Amarone offers a knock-out nose of wood charcoal intermixed with black truffles, melted asphalt, blackberries, and roast beef. Amazingly rich and full-bodied, but not heavy, this chewy, thick, exceptionally pure, harmonious offering should drink well for 10-15+ years. Its low acidity and gorgeously ripe fruit provide immediate accessibility. (RP)" (08/2000)
Starting Bid: $60.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Alain Hudelot-Noëllat Romanée-St-Vivant Grand Cru (92BH, 92JG). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Cool, complex, spicy and elegant aromas that display some secondary development though notably less than the prior bottles. There is good punch, detail and intensity to the round, delicious and equally complex flavors that are on the lighter side but not dilute, all wrapped in a solidly persistent finish that displays relatively little of the typical '96 tanginess. I very much like the classy mouth feel and while this is not especially concentrated, it is well-balanced and really very pretty." (11/2015)
Starting Bid: $625.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Château Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé "Les Combettes" (94WE, 92RP). Wine Enthusiast: "A firm, closed wine at this young stage, it has weight and a sense of rich fruit flavors. Coming from a limestone vineyard, it wears its minerality on its sleeve, a steely, structured wine, aged in wood, that needs several years to show its best. Give it five years or more. (RV)" (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95WE, 93DC, 91RP, 91VN, 91W&S). Wine Enthusiast: "Even in this vintage, which was not so great, Beaulieu has succeeded with this dramatic, classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It's absolutely delicious, offering a range of blackberry, black currant and cedar flavors, complexed with notes of chocolate, anise, sweet smoky leather and Asian spices. Beautiful now for its velvety softness, but has the inherent structure to last for a long time." (12/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (94JS, 94RP, 93VN, 92DC, 92JG, 92WE, 91WS, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. With its 2010, this classified growth located in the southern end of the Medoc may well have made a

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Saxum "G2" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 94VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted just after bottling and a final blend of 58% Mourvedre and 42% Grenache, the 2014 G2 Vineyard comes from a site just to the southeast of James Berry (this was formerly known as Gravity Hills Vineyard) that was planted in the late 1990s. The first release from Justin from this site, this beauty sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a gorgeous, layered bouquet of cured meats, spice, mulled dark fruits, graphite and loads of this chalky minerality that also emerges on the palate. Rich, full-bodied, ultra-pure and impeccably balanced, this seamless, full-bore beauty will need 2-3 years to really shine, and keep for a decade or more after that. Drink through 2029.

Starting Bid: $87.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Rene Rostaing "Côte Brune" Côte-Rôtie (Gentaz Label) (100RP, (94-97JD), 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cote Rotie Cote Brune boasts fantastic aromas of violets, tea, herbs, leather, raspberries and olives—the kind of complex aromas that compel multiple nosings. I hesitated to take a sip for fear the spell would be broken, but this wine lives up to that promise. It's medium to full-bodied, but so silky, so effortless to drink, so long, elegant and complex on the finish that I was rendered speechless in the cellar. My original notes include the phrases 'blown away' and 'pretty [expletive] great.' (JC)" (10/2018)
Starting Bid: $1,025.00

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Sloan Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 94WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 was made by Martha McClellan and the viticulture looked over by David Abreu. The 2003 Sloan, if slightly less prodigious than the perfect 2002, remains a young wine. Notes of vanillin, espresso roast, blackberries, scorched earth, camphor and hints of charcoal and barbecue meat jump from the glass of this spicy, rich, provocative Cabernet Sauvignon. With a full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannin and adequate acidity, the blend includes 14% Cabernet Franc and 86% Cabernet Sauvignon from this extraordinary hillside vineyard above Auberge de Soleil in mid-Napa Valley. This wine is 2-5 years away from full maturity, and should last for another decade. (RP) 96+" (06/2013)
Starting Bid: $175.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1991 Dominus "Napanook Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94JG, 94VN). Vinous: "Healthy deep medium red. Musky plum, cherry jam, spices and chocolate on the nose, complicated by hints of leather, mocha and truffle. Utterly refined, sophisticated wine with the complex soil-driven animal and vegetable notes of a great mature Bordeaux. Distinctly wild but also wonderfully silky and seamless, this midweight wine is a clear standout from the early years of this winery. Evolving very slowly but à point right now. Finishes very subtle and long, with a firm dusting of tannins and surprising structure and grip. Classically dry, showing lovely life in the mouth and lift on the back end, but this is about as far from primary Napa Valley fruit as a Napa wine can be. (ST)" (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $825.00

Bid on this bottle of 1988 Gentaz-Dervieux "Côte Brune" Côte-Rôtie (98VN, 96JG, 94RP). Vinous: "I tasted the 1988 Côte-Rôtie Côte Brune from Domaine Gentaz-Dervieux after a flight of rather formulaic Chapoutier wines. The Gentaz-Dervieux is on a completely different level. Showing some signs of bricking on the rim, the bouquet is pixelated in clarity, adorned with effervescent scents of red cherries, garrigue, fennel, orange blossom and wilted rose petals. The palate does not stint on fruit intensity, and yet the finesse and grace of this Côte-Rôtie is quite profound. Perfectly balanced, long and tender, the 1988 is a stunning Northern Rhône, and yet the munificent donor said he had experienced better bottles. The mind boggles. (NM)" (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $1,850.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Realm "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 98JS, 97RP, 95VN, 94DC). Jeb Dunnuck: "An incredible wine that tops out on my scale, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon comes from one of the great terroirs of the world and delivers everything you could want from a Napa Cabernet! Off-the-hook notes of blackcurrants, blueberries, black cherries, violets, plums, smoke tobacco and incense all soar from the glass. It’s a massive wine, yet stays perfectly balanced and pure on the palate, with loads of tannins, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish. It’s undeniably about as sexy as it gets, yet stays graceful and light, with an ethereal personality. Don’t miss it." (01/2019)
Starting Bid: $480.00

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Louis Jadot Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru ((92-95ST), (91-93BH)). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium red. Medicinal cherry liqueur, red licorice and spicy oak on the nose. Then penetrating and intense but suave, with lovely sappiness to the flavors of raspberry, cranberry and flowers. The grower Jadot buys this fruit from has recently added a vibrating sorting table, and converted entirely to new stainless steel fermentation tanks as of 2010." (01/2013)
Starting Bid: $187.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac (98DC, 98RP, 97VN, 96ST, 96WE, 95JS, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longueville Baron that may eclipse anything they have made in the past. This brilliant wine should be at its peak between 2018 and 2045. (RP)" (12/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Martinelli "Chico's Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Syrah.
Starting Bid: $92.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Sine Qua Non "Rätsel 16" California Syrah (100JD, 99RP, 98VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Syrah Rätsel 16 showed incredibly from barrel and it certainly doesn’t disappoint from bottle. Pure perfection in Syrah, this beauty boasts a deep purple hue as well as a stacked bouquet of ripe blackberries, cured meats, scorched earth, white pepper, white chocolate, and bacon fat. Deep, full-bodied, and massively concentrated, it builds incrementally on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, perfect balance, and a finish that won’t quit. I struggle to think of another wine that delivers this level of intensity without any sensation of weight or heaviness. The 2016s, in general, are relatively approachable, but nevertheless, do your best to hide bottles for 3-4 years." (10/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 & 2007 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2004 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99RP, 98JD, 96WE, 94WS, 93VN) and 1-bottle of 2007 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99JD, 98WE, 97JS, 96RP, 95WS, 94VN). Of the 2004 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Coming close to matching the 2010, the 2004 Syrah Bionic Frog (which was also a cool vintage) came from tiny yields of 16 hectoliter per hectare. It’s an incredibly beautiful Syrah that exhibits lots of saltiness in its cassis and currant-like fruits, licorice, olive brine and crushed rock-like minerality. These all come together perfectly on the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, layered and awesomely pure, plus has a killer finish. It’s another monumental effort from this estate that will stand toe to toe with the greatest Syrah in the world. (JD)" (06/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1983 Diamond Creek "Red Rock Terrace" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Napa Valley wine lovers will know the name Al Brounstein as one of the legends of the region, a man whose tiny winery produced "cult" wines before "cult" was a thing—epic, long-lived, terroir-driven wines that were well ahead of their time. The Red Rock Terrace vineyard is prized for its high iron content, producing wines that, according to Brounstein's successor in the cellar, Phil Steinschreiber, have: "...velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors."

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (99RP, 96VN, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This magnificent Lynch Bages has been drinking well since the day it was released and it continues to go from strength to strength. The biggest, richest, fullest-bodied Lynch Bages until the 2000, the fully mature 1990 exhibits an unbelievably explosive nose of black currants, cedarwood, herbs and spice. The majestic, classically Bordeaux aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, voluptuously textured, rich, intense wine with superb purity as well as thrilling levels of fruit, glycerin and sweetness. This beauty should continue to provide immense pleasure over the next 15+ years. (RP)" (08/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 No Girls "La Paciencia Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Grenache (96JD, 96RP, 95JS, 94WE, 94WS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grenache la Paciencia Vineyard was showing very well indeed, wafting from the glass with a complex aromatic mélange of garrigue, wild strawberries, peony and balsam bough. On the palate, the wine is pure, voluptuous and expansive, with wonderfully silky structure and a layered core of succulent fruit, concluding with a long, tangy finish. Beautifully balanced and amazingly texturally finessed, this is a fabulous Grenache from Elizabeth Bourcier. (WK)" (06/2018)
