Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Beaucastel" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (95JD, 95RP, 94ST, 94WS, 93IWR). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel is a blend of 44% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and the rest Counoise. A very great wine, very much in the mold of its French cousin, Chateau Beaucastel, the wine has a saturated ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of melted licorice, charcoal, blueberry, and blackberries intermixed with freshly sliced mushrooms, tree bark, and pepper. Spicy, dense, full-bodied, and extraordinarily complex, yet at the same time well-delineated and fresh, it should drink well for 10-15+ years. (RP)" (08/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014-2015 Saxum "Terry Hoage Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2014 Saxum "Terry Hoage Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 96RP, 95VN, 92WS) and 1-bottle of 2015 Saxum "Terry Hoage" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96RP, 96VN, 94JD, 91WS). Of the 2014 Saxum "Terry Hoage Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend,Jeb Dunnuck writes: "A similar blend to the 2015, the 2014 Terry Hoage Vineyard (48% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre) is a deeper, richer wine that offers sensational notes of blackberries, currants, pepper, crushed violets and hints of graphite. Deep, rich and layered, yet light on its feet as well as elegant and graceful, this sensational 2014 has sweet tannin, good acidity and a big finish. Give bottles a year or two (it’s great today as well) and enjoy through 2028. " (08/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96JD, 96RP, 96WS, 94ST, 94W&S, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. (RP)" (10/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1989-1990 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Selection Reflets" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1989 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Selection Reflets" Chateauneuf-du-Pape and 3-bottles of 1999 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Selection Reflets" Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Of the 1989 Clos du Mont-Olivet "Selection Reflets" Chateauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker writes writes: "This 60-acre estate of the Sabon brothers is highly fragmented. The oldest vines, located in a 20-acre Clos (an entirely walled vineyard from which the estate draws its name), produced the 540 cases of 1989 Cuvee Papet and 650 cases of the 1990 Cuvee Papet, the first two luxury/old vine cuvees the Sabons have ever made. They require significant cellaring. No new oak is utilized at this estate."

Of the 1996 Tardieu Laurent Cairanne Vieilles Vignes,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The black-colored 1996 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cairanne Old Vines is impressive. Produced from 100% old vine Grenache, and aged 15 months in 100% new oak casks, this wine reveals little evidence of wood! It exhibits a gorgeous, exotic nose of blackberries intermixed with Asian spices, smoked olives, roasted meats, and pure cherry jam. Rich, unctuously-textured, thick, and full-bodied, this opulent wine displays none of the tell-tale pain grille, vanillin of new oak casks - that's how rich and concentrated it is. This low acid, spectacularly-layered wine is undoubtedly one of the finest Cairannes I have ever tasted. (RP)" (02/1999)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1998 Pierre Usseglio Châteauneuf-du-Pape (90RP, 90VN). Vinous: "Good bright deep red. Deep aromas of roasted red fruits and underbrush. Large-scaled, rich and rather unrefined, with notes of cherry, leather, smoke and earth. Huge, mouthcoating, rather rustic finish. Not showing quite the verve it displayed from barrel a year ago but undeniably massive. (ST)" (01/2001)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2007 Xavier Vignon "Cuvée Anonyme" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 95JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Except for Henri Bonneau's 2007 Reserve des Celestins (which is still in barrel), the last 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape to be released will be Xavier Vignon’s Anonyme. This sensational wine spent three years in a combination of demi-muids and small oak. It boasts an inky/purple color along with a sweet nose of underbrush, garrigue, licorice, blackberries and black currants. Full, thick, unctuously textured and even flamboyant, this stunning 2007 should drink well for another 15-20 years. (RP)" (10/2010)

Of the 2000 Eric Texier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes,Wine Spectator writes: "So sleek and clean, this full-bodied red combines beautifully spicy fruit, black currant, licorice and a touch of eucalyptus. Light-footed, it glides on the palate to a long and elegant finish. Seductive. *Top 100 Wines of 2002* (PM)" (08/2002)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1992 Andre Brunel "Les Cailloux - Selection Reflets" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1992 (remember, the cuvée I am describing is the one sold to the American importer) represents 850 cases of Brunel's oldest vines aged in 15-20% new oak. The wine is one of the superstars of what is an average to slightly above average vintage. It reveals an impressively saturated dark ruby/purple color, a profound, sweet, exotic nose of black raspberries, spices, and sweet vanillin. Full-bodied, dense, and concentrated, with gobs of glycerin, extract, and high alcohol, this decadently styled Chateauneuf du Pape should be drunk over the next 10 years. (RP)" (12/1996)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneu--du-Pape (93JD, 93RP, 92ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine I’ve drunk more than a case of since release, the 2007 Châteauneuf du Pape is a rich, full-bodied, sexy effort that has tons of ripe black currants, black raspberries, incense and garrigue aromas and flavors. It has sweet tannin and while drinking at point, it will keep for another 5-7 years. (JD)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2001 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More youthful and backwards, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois has been incredibly consistent for me and always comes in near the top of the scale. Black raspberry, blackberry, wood smoke, licorice, crushed rock-like minerality and smoked beef are just some of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with serious levels of fruit, thrilling structure and blockbuster length. It still needs another handful of years to hit full maturity, but its off-the-hook good today (assuming you’re not completely against tannin). (JD)" (08/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1998-1999 Rhone Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1998 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape (93RP), 1-bottle of 1999 Domaine Combier "Clos des Grives" Crozes-Hermitage, and 1-bottle of 1999 Domaine des Espiers "Cuvée Tradition" Gigondas (90ST). Of the 1998 Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "This is a provocative wine, and probably somewhat controversial, with its notes of charcuterie, incense, and Provencal herbs. The incredibly intoxicating smorgasbord of aromas is followed by flavors that match its aromatic profile. A complex wine that is distinctive, rich, full-bodied, and still capable of lasting another decade, I thought this was an impressive wine, but in a very spicy, earthy style. (RP)" (06/2010)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2007 Domaine Beaurenard "Cuvée Boisrenard" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95JD, 95WS, 94RP, 93ST), 1-bottle of 2007 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, 97RP, (93-96VN), 96WS), and 1-bottle of 2007 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96JD, 96RP, 94VN, 94WS). Of the 2007 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Reminding me of the 2003, yet with even more polished and sweetness to its tannin, the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois offers a full-bodied, ripe, sexy style to go with pedal-to-the-metal notes of black currants, roasted herbs, licorice and toasted spices. Coming from the La Crau lieu-dit and aged in 30% new barrels and the balance in stainless steel, it’s just now entering its prime drink window and will keep for another 10-15 years. (JD)" (02/2017)

Of the 2001 Eric Texier Châteauneuf du Pape Vielles Vignes,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The internationally styled 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape exhibits barrique aging in its notes of black fruit, new oak, espresso, and smoke. Medium-bodied, with considerable finesse and elegance as well as a clean, long finish, it could easily pass for a premier cru from the Côtes de Beaune in a blind tasting. (RP)" (02/2004)

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 4" Central Coast Red Blend (1.5L) (98RP, 95VN, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cumulus Vineyard #4 is an off-the-hook effort that showed even better than last year. Made from 44% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Mourvedre and 4% Touriga Nacional, it’s mostly destemmed (24% whole cluster) and aged 30 months in 30% new French oak. It boasts incredible aromatics of cassis, blackberry, white chocolate, flowers and spice-box to go with a full-bodied, incredibly pure, seamless and textured feel on the palate. Still a baby, this puppy has a long life ahead of it; give it another year or so and enjoy bottles through 2030. (JD)" (08/2014)

Of the 2007 Domaine de la Graveirette Chateauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "An unusual blend of nearly equal parts Grenache and Mourvedre with the balance 15% Syrah, from 40- to 50-year-old vines, this 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape was aged primarily in concrete tanks, with 10% spending time in small oak barrels. A sensational effort, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a soaring perfume of beef blood, graphite, fresh mushrooms, blueberries, and blackberries. This deep, full-bodied, impressively structured effort possesses sweet tannins in addition to

Girard) "Cuvée du Belvédère" Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 1-bottle of 2000 Le Clos du Caillou "Trés Vieilles Vignes Reserve" Côtes-du-Rhone Villages (90RP). Of the 2000 Le Clos du Caillou "Trés Vieilles Vignes Reserve" Côtes-du-Rhone Villages,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "This is a sumptuous effort filled with the scents and flavors of Provence as well as a wealth of black cherry and currant fruit.

Of the 2011 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Beautifully done, and probably the most elegant, seamless version of this cuvée I’ve tasted, the 2011 Booker Vineyard offers terrific aromas and flavors of liquid violets, sappy underbrush, smoked, exotic spices and plenty of crushed rock-like minerality that are all carried by layers of sweet cassis and black raspberry. There’s a northern Rhone-like character here, but it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, fantastic mid-palate concentration, and a seamless, layered and multi-dimensional mouthfeel that’s hard to resist. Made from 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvedre and aged in 300- and 350-liter hogsheads (and fermented with varying degr

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95JD, 95RP, 95WS, 92JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still closed and tight, the 2003 Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is ruby to the rim in color and offers up smoked black fruits, assorted floral characteristics, licorice, truffle and big minerality to go with a full-bodied, dense and chewy palate feel. Turning more spice-driven with air, this beauty is just now entering the early stages of maturity and needs another 3-4 years in the cellar to fully shine. It should have another decade or so of prime drinking after that. Impressive! It is a big step up from the traditional cuvee. (JD)" (06/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Saxum "Terry Hoage" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (95RP, 95VN, 93ST). Vinous: "Another gorgeous wine, the 2011 Terry Hoage Vineyard is especially supple and resonant for the year. Dark red cherries, kirsch, cinnamon and new leather are all woven together in a brilliant, wine built on texture, energy and nuance. The Terry Hoage is 51% Grenache and 49% Syrah, done mostly with destemmed fruit and aged predominantly in puncheons. (AG)" (07/2014)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1988 Domaine du Cayron Gigondas (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark garnet-colored 1988 possesses huge, peppery, fruitcake, herbaceous, olive and smoky flavors and aromas. Expansive and nearly sweet on the palate, there is no doubting the extract levels that must have been obtained to hide a wine that has an alcohol level of over 14%. This thrill-a-sip Gigondas should continue to turn heads, raise eyebrows, and horrify puritans. (RP)" (12/1996)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Domaine du Pegau "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96WS, 94JD, 94RP, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "A real powerhouse, with muscular layers of fig and black currant compote, backed by braised beef, chestnut, tobacco and tar flavors. The long, mesquite-filled finish lets additional bittersweet cocoa and dark fruit notes linger, with lots of garrigue. Best from 2008 through 2025. *#12 Top 100 of 2007, Collectibles* (JM)" (05/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97DC, 96WE, 96WS, 95RP, 94JD, 94ST) and 1-bottle of 2010 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, 95RP, 95ST, 95WS). Of the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Decanter writes: "According to François Perrin this was the perfect year, with rain at the perfect time and an Indian summer in September. This is so graceful, with blackberry aromas and black olive notes. It’s fleshy and expressive, with no lack of grip and tension. The fruit profile on the palate mirrors that on the nose. This masterpiece is vivid and harmonious with a chalky acidity and remarkable length. One to forget in the cellar for at least two decades. (CG)" (11/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 & 2015 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2010 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 96RP, 96VN, 94ST, 94WS) and 1-bottle of 2015 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 97VN, 96JD, 95WS). Of the 2010 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend,Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Sporting a vibrant ruby, semi-opaque color, the 2010 Saxum James Berry Vineyard is the most tight, backwards version of this cuvee that I can recall. A blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Mourvedre, and 22% Syrah, it has a decidedly savory bouquet of blackberry liqueur, kirsch, violets, bouquet garni, ground pepper, and graphite. Full-bodied and layered on the palate, with brilliant mid-palate concentration, superb freshness, and masses of tannin, this brilliant Rhône blend from Paso Robles will stand toe to toe with the best wines out there, but it is not for those seeking instant gratification and

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, (92-95JD), 95WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Châteauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate’s standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage.

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (99JD, 96VN, 95RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Flirting with perfection, the 2016 Booker Vineyard is a classic bruiser from this vineyard that has overflowing notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, and violets. Checking in as 73% Syrah and 27% Mourvèdre (13% stems) brought up new barrels, it hits the balance with full-bodied richness, incredible purity of fruit, ultra-fine tannins, and a finish that won’t quit. If you’re lucky enough to have a few bottles, do you best to hide them in the cellar for 2-3 years." (10/2019)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1985 Bernard Burgaud Côte-Rôtie (93JG, 92RP). John Gilman: "It has always been my impression that the 1985 vintage was Bernard Burgaud’s greatest year, as some changes took place here in the later vintages of the 1980s and early 1990s that seemed to conspire against the wines reaching the magical peak of the 1985. I sold a fair bit of this wine in my early merchant days and knew the wine very well over the first decade of its life in the market, but had not seen a bottle in many, many years prior to our San Francisco tasting in August. The wine has aged very gracefully and offers up a complex bouquet of cassis, black cherries, leather, woodsmoke, a bit of blood, lovely soil tones and hung game. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and still quite solid at the core, with fine balance and grip, still a touch of backend tannin and very good length on the finish. This does not quite possess the breed at maturity of wines like the Jamet of Champet

Of the 2007 Domaine du Vieux Lazaret "Cuvée Exceptionelle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Perhaps the finest wine I have ever tasted from Jerome Quiot is Vieux Lazaret’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Exceptionnelle. This fabulous wine boasts an inky/ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of cassis, black raspberry liqueur, spring flowers, and hints of graphite and truffles.

Bid on this bottle of 1988 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (92JD, 92RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This has a charming, rustic nose of leather, candlewax, black pepper and a touch of peat. The palate is cohesive and harmonious, not in the same league as the ensuing couple of vintages but with good poise and definition, notes of ripe black cherries, blueberry and iodine with vibrant acidity lending it a clean crisp finish. Perhaps a little linear compared to others but still a great, mature CdP that is a joy to drink rather than intellectualize about. (NM)" (05/2007)

Of the 2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthfeel, and enormous length and richness.

Bid on this bottle of 1998 Paul Autard "La Côte Ronde" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95JD, 93RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Drinking perfectly and possessing classic aromas of mature, garrigue-laced Grenache fruit, saddle leather, truffle, spice cabinet, and licorice, the 1998 Domaine Paul Autard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée La Cote Ronde shows not a hint of its modern elevage and displays nothing but pure, southern Rhône character in both its aromas and palate feel. Full-bodied and still beautifully fruited and rich, with an almost Burgundian silkiness and polish, this superb ’98 is fully mature (it held up and improved over the evening), yet should continue to evolve gracefully for another 5-8 years, possible longer. Having said that, I think it is drinking at point, and would plan on drinking over the next handful of years while the fruit is still vibrant and fresh. Beautiful stuff anyway you look at it and a solid, positive data-point on how these modern, barrique-aged cuvees develop and age. " (06/2012)

Full-bodied, with excellent concentration, this is a juicy, succulent Chateauneuf du Pape. This particular selection, first inaugurated by the Gonnet brothers in 1989, is given a slightly different upbringing, with more small casks utilized than for their regular cuvee. (RP)" (12/1996)

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2014 Le Clos du Caillou "Les Quartz" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5L) ((92-94VN), 93RP, 92JD). Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Deep-pitched aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, along with hints of licorice, floral pastilles and white pepper. Broad, palate-caressing blueberry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter and livelier as the wine opens up, showing very good energy and back-end punch. Finishes sweet, smoky and very long, featuring slow-building tannins and an echo of sappy dark fruit. (JR)" (04/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Galévan Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95RP, 93JD). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest traditional cuvees I have tasted as well as a sleeper of the vintage. Made from 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre from 55-year-old vines, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a stunning perfume of creme de cassis, kirsch, incense, licorice and a vague notion of beef blood and roasted Provencal herbs. All of the fruit comes from vines planted in the northern end of the appellation. This exquisite, full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 15 or more years. It is a major star of the vintage, and probably is reasonably priced as well. A microscopic estate owned by Coralie Goumarre, Domaine Galevan was established, remarkably, in 1780, but the first estate-bottled wine did not emerge until 1968. I was blown away by these four red wine cuvees, and both of the 2010s have jumped dramatically in score since I

Of the 2001 Roger Sabon "Cuvée Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Tipping the scales at 14.5-15% alcohol, the old vine, full-bodied 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Prestige is a wine of impressive intensity and thickness. Aromas reminiscent of liqueur of roasted herbs intermixed with meaty, game-like smells, black cherries, ground pepper, beef blood, and garrigue are followed by a wine of noteworthy stature, complexity, and mouthfilling generosity. Serious tannin is largely obscured by the wealth of fruit and extract. (RP)" (02/2004)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Saxum "Hexe" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (100JD, 98VN, 95RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "A perfect wine, the 2016 Hexe comes mostly from the estate James Berry Vineyard yet has a little bit of G2 fruit as well. Made from lots showing the most structure and power, it tastes like an old vine Grenache from the La Crau lieu-dit in Châteauneuf du Pape with its huge bouquet of black raspberries, cassis, garrigue, ground pepper, and melted licorice. Full-bodied, ripe, and sexy on the palate, with awesome concentration, it has enough structure to warrant 2-3 years of bottle age, but good luck keeping your hands off this beauty." (10/2019)

Based on 51% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 13% Mataro, and the rest Petite Sirah and Touriga Nacional, it offers a complex bouquet of black raspberries, Christmas spice, herbes de Provence, and blood orange. Beautifully textured, seamless, and silky, this beauty doesn't put a foot wrong, has no hard edges, and is just a glorious drink." (11/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Booker "Vertigo" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (95JD, 95RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Comprised of 48% Syrah, 35% Grenache and 17% Mourvèdre, the 2015 GSM Vertigo has a medium garnet-purple color and nose of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and licorice with touches of dried Provence herbs, chocolate box and black pepper. Full-bodied and nicely played with firm, ripe, rounded tannins and a lively backbone supporting the generous, bright fruit, it finishes long and spicy. (LPB)" (09/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 6" Central Coast Red Blend (99RP, 98VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that flirts with perfection, the 2012 Cumulus Vineyard #6 is an interesting blend of 38% Syrah, 37% Grenache, 17.4% Petite Sirah and the rest Mourvedre that saw 33 months in 54% new French oak. There’s a tiny 191 cases made, and it’s one of the most singular, exotic wines I’ve tasted. Spice, cedar, chocolate, exotic flowers and an assortment of dark fruits all emerge from this full-bodied, layered blend that hits the palate with serious richness and depth. Yet, like all truly great wines, it’s light, ethereal and never, ever heavy. (JD) " (08/2016)

Of the 2010 Clos du Mont Olivet "Cuvée du Papet" Châteauneuf-du-Pape,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Possibly the finest example of the Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet since Mont Olivet’s unreal 1990, the 2010 is a blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah, all aged in foudre. The grapes come from the estate’s oldest vines (50- to 105-years-old), which were planted in the famous sites of Mont Olivet and Bois Dauphin. A extraordinarily deep plum/purple color is followed by notes of balsam wood, raspberries, black currants, lavender, garrigue, kirsch, licorice and underbrush. This quintessential Chateauneuf du Pape smells like an open-air Provencal market. It is a full-bodied, full-throttle, multilaye
