Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey Chambertin "Lavaux St-Jacques" (92BH, 92JG). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is also quite pure, airy and very cool with an aromatic profile of red berry fruit and wet stone that is even more elegant and refined. Moreover, this sense of refinement continues onto the intense, delicious and balanced flavors that culminate in a delicious and moderately austere finish. A classic Lavaut that should age well as it is impeccably well-balanced and markedly complex. *Outstanding*" (01/2013)
Starting Bid: $160.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Lagrange, St-Julien (94DC, 94VN, 94WE, (92-93JG), 93JS, 93RP, 92JD, 92ST, 91W&S, 91WS). Vinous: "The 2009 Lagrange has a very fine bouquet, one of the more complex offering from the appellation, with blackberry, loam, truffle and leather aromas. I love the cohesion here. The palate is very well balanced with plenty of freshness, a killer line of acidity and wonderful precision towards the finish. I have liked this Lagrange from day one and now at 10 years it remains perhaps the most underrated cru within Saint-Julien. This is possibly the best bottle that I have encountered. (NM)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (94WE, 91RP, 91ST, 91WS, 90W&S). Wine Enthusiast: "As so often, Léoville-Barton stands out for its style and elegance. With fresh fruit and acidity allied to generous tannins, it sums up the character of the 2004 vintage. Very classic in Bordeaux terms: not hugely powerful, but delicious. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $255.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Maison Alex Gambal Vosne-Romanée Vieilles Vignes ((89-91BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here too the nose is relatively high-toned with appealing spice elements adding breadth to the expressive nose of red currant and sandalwood nuances. The supple and very rich medium-bodied flavors are blessed with plenty of palate coating dry extract that imparts a velvety mouth feel to the balanced and impressively persistent finish. This is an excellent villages and well worth considering. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (04/2014)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 99JS, 95VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, Realm’s perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard exhibits a La Mission Haut-Brion-like bouquet of blueberries, scorched earth, burning embers and spring flowers, a dense, opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a staggeringly long, multidimensional, 60-second finish. It can be drunk with enormous pleasure now, but promises to evolve for at least a quarter of a century. For historical buffs, the Dr. Crane Vineyard is named after a real doctor, who first planted the vineyard in 1858. In the 1920s, this small area was once considered the home of migrant Chinese workers. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $1,127.00

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 2017 Kosta Browne "Treehouse Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (97JS, 96JD, 95WS, 92RP). James Suckling: "This sits on the top of a knoll with warm daytime temperatures and cool nights and mornings. The soils are rich in ironstone. This is a powerful wine that has very direct, driving tannins that deliver rich, ripe red-cherry and dark-fruit flavors. Athletic. The richness and juicy allure here is stunning, as is the deep, fleshy cherry flavor on the finish. Glossy tannin texture." (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $600.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Domaine Ponsot Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru ((93-96RP), (93-95BH)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru (planted at the same time as the Griotte incidentally) has a very pure, mineral-drive bouquet that has a touch more delineation than the Griotte at the moment. The palate is structured and very focused: real energy and tension here with a crisp, tense finish that lingers long in the mouth. This might very well turn out to be one of Laurent Ponsot’s best 2013 Grand Cru. (NM)" (12/2014)
Starting Bid: $491.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100DC, 98RP, 96VN). Decanter: "We are in perfectly-aged claret territory here, the most beautiful impression of a wine at its plateau. It's perfectly ready to drink and is still generous, with a long life ahead of it. Its spicy notes, touches of pencil lead and still-concentrated cassis combine with menthol, buttery leather and that classic Médoc saline, mineral-edged flourish - this is the height of well-aged Cabernet Sauvignon. (JA)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $1,650.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2013 Bevan "Ontogeny" Oakville Bordeaux Blend (95RP, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Ontogeny Proprietary Red is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, coming from some of Russell Bevan’s favorite vineyard sources – Sugarloaf Mountain, Two Dogs, Tin Box and Tench. Quite flavorful, it is exhibiting slightly more new oak than some of the other cuvées, but is still sexy and opulent, with voluptuous texture, low acidity, and oodles of juicy, succulent black and red fruits, licorice, underbrush and a touch of vanillin. An already irresistible beauty, it can be drunk over the next 20 years. (RP)" (10/2015)
Starting Bid: $400.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (100JS, 98JD, 98VN, 95DC, 95RP, 94CG, 94W&S, 94WE). James Suckling: "Stunning depth, power, purity and elegance. The blackcurrants and plums are fresh and intense on the nose with blueberries and gently herbal notes, too. The palate has a keenly articulated array of vibrant tannins that hold long, fresh and pure. It invokes a sense of wonderment at the finish. So long and so pure. This blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, is just at the start of a wonderful journey." (11/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1980 DRC Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg Grand Cru (97RP, 94BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This immaculately preserved bottle of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti's 1980 Richebourg Grand Cru was extraordinary, soaring from the glass with a heart-stopping bouquet of peonies, orange rind, hoisin, clove and cardamon mingled with beautifully pure notes of raspberries and plums. Full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, it's sumptuous and intensely perfumed, with an ample core of fruit, melting tannins and a broad, expansive finish that remains unerringly precise. (WK)" (02/2021)
Starting Bid: $3,200.00

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Sine Qua Non "Trouver L'Arène" California Syrah (100JD, 100RP, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah Trouver L’Arene was made using 34% whole cluster and has a deep purple-black color with intense cassis, black plums and black cherries scents plus hints of anise, violets, sage and tar, with wafts of savory/smoked meat suggestions. Full-bodied, this voluptuous beauty is seriously singing in the mouth, belting out vibrant red and black fruit flavor layers, all framed by very fine, rounded, ripe tannins and a wonderful freshness, finishing with persistent perfumed fruit and a spring in its step. (LPB)" (09/2017)
Starting Bid: $301.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (100DC, 100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 98VN, 98WS, 97WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Léoville Las Cases (composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc) is quite closed to begin, yet with patient coaxing it unfurls beautifully to reveal suggestions of ripe blackcurrants, black raspberries, warm redcurrants and wild blueberries, followed by touches of unsmoked cigars, tilled red soil, cast iron pan, fallen leaves and lavender plus wonderfully fragrant wafts of lilacs and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tightly knit, very subtle layers of minerals, floral notions and black and red berries, all framed by exquisitely ripe, silt-like tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. Simply captivating even in its youth, give it at least a decade in the cellar and then enjoy it over the next 50+ years. (LPB)" (11/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (100RP, 98JS, 98VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mark Aubert notes that this is a complex vineyard. It is planted to four different clones: two Old Wente clones, Mount Eden and Corton Charlemagne. The 2017 Chardonnay Lauren Estate starts out with a quiet intensity of ripe pears, apricot tart and spiced apples notes, growing exponentially to reveal a whole spectrum of savory/earthy nuances: marzipan, cashews, yeast extract, oolong tea, chalk dust and nutmeg. Full-bodied, the palate truly lets off the flavor fireworks, giving up loads of citrus, stone fruit, pears and savory flavors plus a racy backbone, finishing very long and very moreish. (LPB)" (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $420.00

Bid on this 9 liter of 1995 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Laurence" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (9L) (97WS). Wine Spectator: "Superdense wine. Ripe, rich and superthick, this vibrates on the palate like a mini-earthquake, shaking the senses. The tannins dominate the fruit, but it has immense concentration and complexity, with a long, long, ripe aftertaste. (PM, Web-2001)"
Starting Bid: $976.51

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 2005 La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva Rioja (1.5L) (96RP, 96WE, 95DC, 95JS, 94VN, 93W&S, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: This is usually my favorite wine from La Rioja Alta and 2005 is one of its best showings, going back to the quality of the vintages of the 1950s and 60s. The nose is very balsamic with notes of camphor, hints of mint, leather and hung game wrapped around a core of cherries in liqueur. Together it is balanced, subtle, truly elegant and classical. The palate is only medium-bodied but with great concentration of flavors that are very tasty, mineral, almost salty and framed by ultra-fine tannins and smashing balance. A great classic. At this quality level this is a bargain. (LG) (04/2015)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1984 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94JG, 92RP). John Gilman: "The 1984 vintage of Dominus was the first ever to be released by the estate, as Christian Moueix properly judged that the tighter and more structured 1983, which was the first wine actually vinified at the estate, would do well with a bit more bottle age in the cellars prior to release, so the 1984 was the first to find its way to market. I have always loved this vintage of Dominus and this most recent bottle was absolutely singing, offering up a deep and classy bouquet of red and black cherries, a touch of menthol, cigar smoke, a beautifully complex base of Rutherford soil, fresh herb tones and a judicious base of vanillin oak. " (05/2013)
Starting Bid: $480.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 1991 Lorenzi & Shipman "Cask One" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. 1991 was a strong vintage in Napa Valley. The juice for this private label Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Howell Mountain.
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1992 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1992 Les Pavots, reminiscent of a top-class St.-Julien/Pauillac, is the first vintage that has begun to exhibit some complex cedar, lead pencil, and cassis aromas. Medium to full-bodied, with impressive richness, this layered, intense yet balanced wine still needs another 2-3 years of cellaring, although it reveals more immediate charm and secondary aromas than its three younger siblings. It is a wine that will last for at least 20+ years. The blend for Peter Michael's Les Pavots proprietary red wine varies year to year, but the composition usually includes at least 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5%-15% Merlot, and 5%-15% Cabernet Franc. Sixty percent new French oak casks are utilized. The result is a wine that comes as close as any other California Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine to resembling a structured, rich, complex St.-Julien/Pauillac. (RP)" (12/1996)
Starting Bid: $270.00

Bid on this bottle of 2001 d'Yquem, Sauternes (100JS, 100RP, 100WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 10, 000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2100+. (RP)" (04/2005)
Starting Bid: $525.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1999 Rivetti La Spinetta "Pin" Monferrato Rosso (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rivetti's blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nebbiolo, the 1999 Pin Monferrarto Rosso, is an exotic, ripe, luxuriously intense effort displaying extravagant flavors that border on excess. It is voluptuously-textured with intense aromas of red and black fruits, smoke, and new oak. While there is a tendency to think of this as an internationally-styled offering, Nebbiolo gives the wine a finesse and complexity not found in most new breed wines. Its texture, richness, and thickness are a total turn-on. (RP)" (10/2001)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (98VN, 96JS, 96RP, 94DC, 94WS, 93W&S). Vinous: "The 2012 Monte Bello is one of the most harmonious young Monte Bellos I can remember tasting. Seamless and voluptuous through to the finish, the 2012 is showing beautifully today. Raspberry jam, pomegranate, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. A wine with a distinctly red-hued profile, silky tannins, no hard edges and exceptional overall balance, the 2012 Monte Bello is simply magnificent. The 2012 is racy but also impeccably balanced throughout, with shades of the 2001 that come through from time to time. I won't be surprised if the 2013 and 2014 both eventually surpass it, but there is no denying that the 2012 is simply stunning today. This is one of the best showings yet for the 2012. (AG)" (07/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Sine Qua Non "Le Chemin Vers L'Hérésie" California Grenache (99JD, 98RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2015 Grenache le Chemin Vers l’Heresie from barrel, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint from bottle. The 2015 checks in as a blend of 75% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre, 8% Touriga Nacional and the rest Petite Sirah, fermented with 44% whole clusters (all from the Grenache and Mourvèdre) and aged close to two years in mostly used barrel. It sports a ruby/purple-tinged color to go with gorgeous notes of black cherries, framboise, black olives, fennel seed, and peppery herbs. Deep, concentrated, yet also voluptuous and seamless, it’s another tour de force from this estate which consistently produces one of the greatest Grenaches in the world. " (07/2018)
Starting Bid: $448.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1997 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "PNV-Take Two, Arcadia Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars did as much as any other producer to put Napa Valley on the map. With their 1974 vintage Cabernet besting the cream of the crop of Bordeaux at the 1976 Judgement of Paris, they cemented Napa's reputation for the world. Ever since then, their wines have been benchmark renditions of the classic Napa Valley style, and their Merlot carries on in this exact vein. Plush yet structured, it's got all the noteworthy blue and black fruit character you'd expect, along a creamy vanilla and spice core that is the Stag's Leap signature. Just a lovely bottle of fully mature New World Merlot.
Starting Bid: $245.00

Bid on this bottle of 1955 La Rioja Alta "890" Reserva Rioja. The Gran Reserva 890 is the longest-aged wine in the excellent La Rioja Alta stable, with an impressive 6 years of aging in barrel followed by extensive aging in bottle. The result is a wine that is dark-fruited, savory and a phenomenal ager. It shows irresistible elegance and sense of balance. As far as grapes are concerned, there is Tempranillo from the Rioja Alta village of Briñas (neighboring Haro), and a tiny portion of older vine Graciano and Mazuelo from Rodezno. This is classic Rioja.
Starting Bid: $350.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma-Napa Counties Claret (96RP, 94ST, 92CG, 92WE, 91VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Claret Reserve, 56% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 22 months in 40% new French oak, boasts a stunning perfume of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, incense, blackberries, cassis and forest floor aromas. This full-bodied, concentrated, multidimensional red fills the mouth and coats the palate, but never comes across as heavy or unruly. The tannins are velvety and well-integrated in this spectacular, classic Napa red. (RP)" (10/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Bedrock Wine Company "Ode to Lucien" California Rhône Blend. The Ode to Lucien is dedicated to Lucien Peyraud, the legendary winemaker for Domaine Tempier who helped establish the Bandol AOC. Made of old-vine Mourvedre and Grenache, this is a Bandol-inspired blend that is only made in select years. Of the 2015 vintage at Bedrock Antonio Galloni writes: "This is a remarkable set of wines from Morgan Peterson and Chris Cottrell at Bedrock...My impression is that the fruit is being picked a bit earlier than in the past, as the wines have more brightness and freshness than was once the norm, and yet they also have plenty of the depth that has been such a signature here since the beginning. Cottrell attributes the increased ability to pick earlier to a greater emphasis on dry farming. Whatever the reason or reasons, the 2015s are tremendous."
Starting Bid: $70.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir.
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2013 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (95RP, 94WE, 94WS, 93VN) and 1-bottle of 2014 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (95RP, 95WS, 94VN, 93WE). Of the 2013 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Brought up in a scant 15% new puncheons, the 2013 Syrah en Cerise is a beautifully layered, elegant, yet focused and concentrated Syrah that really needs 2-3 years of bottle age to strut its stuff. Black cherries, raw steak, violets and pepper all emerge from this full-bodied, balanced, classic Syrah from one the top winemakers in the US. (JD) 95+" (06/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1980 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon. Ridge Vineyards was founded in 1962, though the history of the Monte Bello vineyard and winery dates back to the 1880s. Paul Draper, who joined Ridge in 1969, is one of the world's most celebrated winemakers. His awards include the Decanter Man of the Year (2000), COPIA Award for winemaking (2004), and the James Beard Award (2007). In 2015, a Decanter Magazine poll of his peers voted him in the top five most admired winemakers in the world. The winemaking for Ridge combines old-school techniques using native yeasts and avoiding filtration. While Ridge is best known for its Cabernet, they are also well known for their range of Zinfandel wines and Zinfandel-based blends. " (1995)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2015 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (92WE, 90WS) and 1-bottle of 2016 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (94VN, 92WS). Of the 2016 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, Vinous writes: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Southing is terrific. Finely cut and bright, with soaring floral and citrus overtones, the Southing offers a beguiling mix of deep fruit and aromatic intensity. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint and rose petal are all finely cut in a precise, mid-weight Pinot of real distinction. This is such a pretty wine. (AG)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2010 Ant Farm "Circadia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Enthusiast: "Rich tasting, dense in a good way, this layers ripe cherry, light herbs and cinnamon flavors on a firm texture of tannins and acidity. It's a solidly structured, full-bodied Cabernet that carries some complexity. (JG)" (11/2014)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1994 Benzinger "Imagery Series" Sonoma County Cabernet Franc (91WS). Wine Spectator: "Smooth and supple, with ripe plum, cherry and berry flavors that are rich and complex, firm tannins and a nice dash of oak. Remarkably harmonious on the finish." (04/1997)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2018 Beau Vigne "Cult" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Cult is a blend of both of the estate vineyards: Stags Ridge and Soda Canyon, with 15% blended from Rutherford and Oakville. It was aged in 100% new oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it prances out of the glass with showy black fruit notions of preserved plums, baked blueberries and crème de cassis plus suggestions of hoisin, cedar chest, pencil lead and tilled soil with a touch of sautéed herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is filled with black fruit preserves with loads of exotic spice and herbal sparks, framed by chewy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing earthy. (LPB) 92+" (11/2020)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 3-half-bottle lot of 2003 Bert Simon Serrig Herrenberg Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese Mosel (375ml) (96WS). Wine Spectator: Cantaloupe, honey and candied lemon aromas and flavors mark this racy TBA. The combination of acidity and sweetness is intense, offsetting each other with a sweet-tart impression. Terrific finish. Drink now through 2035. 25 cases imported. (BS) (03/2005)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2001 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage ((93-95RP), 95ST, 94WS, 93W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Year in and year out, one of the three greatest Hermitages made is Chapoutier’s Le Pavillon. The 2001 Ermitage Le Pavillon exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of camphor, ink, creme de cassis, and hints of licorice as well as smoke. Although dense, rich, and full-bodied, the 2001 reveals more acidity in its delineated, nervous personality. Unquestionably great and intense, it will be less charming and precocious than its 2000 sibling. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. These uncompromising offerings from a young genius are not meant for consumers who want something to drink immediately. (RP)" (06/2003)
Starting Bid: $245.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Tempier "La Migoua" Bandol (93WS). Wine Spectator: "A pure and powerful red, finely polished and structured, with a broad swath of red plum, raspberry and cherry flavors. There's concentrated cedar and cigar box on the finish. (KM)" (05/2009)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Talley "Rosemary's Vineyard" Arroyo Grande Pinot Noir (95WE, 93BH, 93CG, 92ST, 91RP). Wine Enthusiast: "A great Pinot Noir, although it’s rugged now in its youth, with a scoury mouthfeel. Raspberries, cherries, cola, mushrooms splashed with balsamic, and white pepper, clove and cinnamon spices mark the flavors. Should emerge from austerity by 2015 and provide good drinking for several years afterward. *Cellar Selection* " (04/2012)
Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97JD, 97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard, which comes primarily from the Calera clone (although I suspect there are a few mystery clones in their plantings), always seems to remind me of a grand cru from Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits, particularly Morey-St.-Denis. Dense ruby/plum, its sweet nose of strawberries, black cherry liqueur, fresh porcini mushrooms and forest floor is followed by a dark, full-bodied, rich and concentrated wine that is supple, dramatic, and even flamboyant. (RP)" (03/2016)
Starting Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2011 Quivet "Pellet Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 1-bottle of 2011 Quivet "Kenefick Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90VN). Of the 2011 Quivet "Kenefick Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Vinous writes: "The2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Kenefick Ranch is quite a bit darker and more voluptuous than the Pellet Estate, with considerable fleshiness for the year. Blue and purplish-hued fruits, spice, lavender and savory herbs open up in a delicious, appealing Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next handful of years." (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges Vieilles Vignes ((88-91BH), 90JG). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "From La Charmotte and Au Chouillet, both at the south end of the Vosne sector. Very mild reduction diminishes only slightly the red and dark berry fruit aromas that are pungently earthy where this element continues onto the rich and impressively scaled flavors that possess a fleshy mouth feel, all wrapped in a long and mouth coating finish. This brooding and very serious effort will require 6 to 8 years to be at its best." (01/2012)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2007 ZD California Chardonnay and 2-bottles of 2008 ZD California Chardonnay. Of the 2007 ZD California Chardonnay, ZD Wines was established in 1969 by former aerospace engineers Norman DeLeuze and Gino Zepponi. They named the wine ZD, not only to signify the initials of their last names, but also as an acronym for "zero defects", a term used in the quality control program at their former job at Aerojet. Zepponi unfortunately died in 1985, and DeLeuze and his family took full ownership. Produced from grapes grown in California's coolest climates, from as far north as Carneros to the Arroyo Seco appellation in Monterey, this wine was made with no malolactic fermentation, ensuring a perfect balance of forward fruit and crisp acidity. Aging for 10 months in barrel adds a richness and complexity that rounds out this value-oriented Chardonnay.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1957 Fontanafredda Barolo. Fontanafredda is a historic estate in the commune of the same name in Piedmont.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana (97JS, 96RP, 95DC, 95VN, 94WE, 94WS, 92W&S). James Suckling: "This is amazing on the nose with blackberry, black truffle, dried cherry and hints of tobacco. So complex on the nose. Almost no need to taste it. Full body, soft and velvety tannins, and a persistent, fabulous finish. The mouthfeel is magic." (03/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2014 Carlisle "Montafi Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel (96WS, (93-95RP), (92-94VN), 93WE) and 2-bottles of 2014 Carlisle "Old Vines" Russian River Valley Zinfandel ((91-94RP), 93WE, 91WS, 90VN). Of the 2014 Carlisle "Montafi Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel, Wine Spectator writes: "Zinfandel doesn't get much better than this.

A knockout. *Ranked #14, Top 100 Wines of 2016, Highly Recommended* (TF)" (08/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97DC, 96WE, 96WS, 95RP, 94JD). Decanter: "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 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2011 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (93WS, 92JS, 92RP, 91W&S), 1-bottle of 2012 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (93RP, 93WS, 92VN, 92W&S), 1-bottle of 2014 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (94RP, 93VN, 92JS, 92WE, 92WS, 91W&S), and 1-bottle of 2015 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco (93RP, 93W&S, 93WE, 93WS). Of the 2014 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "To be released in September, the 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. (ML)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Arista "Two Birds Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (95RP, 93WS, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Two Birds Estate has a pale to medium ruby color and aromas of violet, pink peppercorn, potpourri, prosciutto and dusty earth, with crunchy red and black fruits at the core. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in the fruit, earth and savory layers, with firm framing tannins and juicy acidity to carry the long, savory, bergamot-laced finish. This is just stuffed with flavor and is very dense. Yum! 227 cases were made. (EB) 95+" (04/2019)
