Bid on this bottle of 1967 Oddero Barolo (93JG). John Gilman: "I wrote a fair bit about the superb Oddero Baroli from this era back in October of 2010, when reporting on a comparative tasting of the legendary 1971, 1964 and 1958 vintages in the Langhe. I love the Oddero wines from this era (not that the new releases are not anything but superb as well!) and these are some of the best-kept secrets out there today for Barolo from this era. The 1967 is a beautiful and utterly refined bottle of mature Barolo, offering up a very complex and captivating bouquet of cherries, oranges, woodsmoke, gamebirds, coffee, oregano, gentle tariness and leather. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and seamless, with its full-bodied format perfectly resolved today. The wine has superb intensity at the core, excellent complexity and focus and a very long, tangy and beautifully balanced finish. This is a superb bottle of Barolo at its peak of maturity. 93+" (07/2014)
Starting Bid: $124.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (94DC, 92RP, 92VN, 92WS, 91W&S, 90JS). Decanter: "Sumptuous blackberry nose, ripe and seductive with quite a cool, minty aroma in the context of the appellation. Polished and well-made with lovely tannins and skilful use of oak. . This combines Napa generosity with old world finesse. (Panel Tasting)"

Bid on this bottle of 1969 Oddero Barolo. This winery was founded in 1878, in the area of Santa Maria, a hamlet of La Morra. It is one of the oldest producers of Barolo, a family that has kept the distinctive traditional style of winemaking for over a century.

Starting Bid: $103.02

Bid on this bottle of 1974 Oddero Barolo (92JG). John Gilman: "Here is another excellent old Oddero Barolo, with lovely focus and resolution in evidence on both the nose and palate and a sophisticated palate impression that is the epitome of mature Barolo. The lovely bouquet wafts from the glass in a perfectly à point mélange of cherries, orange rind, sous bois, a touch of fresh rosemary, camphor, gentle tariness and an autumnally smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and intensely flavored, with a sweet core of fruit, tangy acids, melting tannins and lovely length and grip on the complex and very classy finish. Lovely juice at its zenith from this very fine and dramatically underrated estate." (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $116.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (95WE, 93RP, 93VN). Wine Enthusiast: "The mountain appellation speaks loudly in this wine, contributing juicy blackberry, tar and leather, all within a forested context of wild truffle and crunchy leaves. Concentrated and robust in body and ripeness, it unwinds slowly in the glass, imparting jolts of black pepper as it goes. *Top 100 Wines of 2017* (VB)" (02/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 1976 Oddero Barolo. This winery was founded in 1878, in the area of Santa Maria, a hamlet of La Morra. It is one of the oldest producers of Barolo, a family that has kept the distinctive traditional style of winemaking for over a century.

Starting Bid: $92.00

Bid on this bottle of 1980 Oddero Barolo. John Gilman: "I cannot ever recall having drunk a wine from the 1980 vintage in Piemonte, but this bottle from Oddero was actually quite good. The bouquet is fully mature and nicely complex, offering up scents of black cherries, dark berries, beef broth, forest floor and tarry undertow. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and still with a bit of backend tannin, with good balance and a long, surprisingly complex finish. There is ample mid-palate depth here still, but this wine is now fully mature and wide open and offering really very tasty drinking now and for the foreseeable future. 1980! Who knew?" (01/2018)
Starting Bid: $97.24

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Odette Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93JS, 93VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits graphite, blackberry and cassis, chocolate and a touch of mineral in a full-bodied, layered and impressively pure style. It’s a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium. This is only a baby, but promises to hit its peak in 7-10 years and last 25-30. Drink 2022-2045. (RP) 95+" (12/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1974 Palladino "Serralunga" Barolo . Palladino is one of the oldest wineries in Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of Italy's Piedmont. It was recently restored and equipped with the most up-to-date winemaking technology.
Starting Bid: $71.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 95VN, 93DC). Vinous: "Deep, inky and powerful, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a classic wine endowed with tons of regional character and personality to burn. The inclusion of all seven Bordeaux varieties in the blend adds layers of nuance and complexity. Hints of game, smoke, licorice and dark spices add nuance to a somber, brooding Cabernet Sauvignon that is going to need at least a few years to fully open up. Betty O'Shaughnessy and her husband Paul Woolls, along with winemaker Sean Capiaux and viticulturist Alan Peirson, run one of the hidden jewels of Napa Valley. All of the wines in this lineup are recommended. The Chardonnay emerges from a vineyard in Oakville, while the Cabernets draw from sites on Mt. Veeder and Howell Mountain, where the winery is located. The Merlot is a great choice for nearer term drinking, while the Napa Valley Cabernet is one of the very best wines rea

Bid on this bottle of 1975 Pio Cesare Barolo. Pio Cesare is a wine producer in Piedmont, Italy, particularly known for its elegant Barolo and Barbaresco wines. The estate was founded in 1881 by Cesare Pio, and is one of the oldest in the region and one of the first to export. It is still owned and run by his descendants.

Starting Bid: $42.40

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Pulido Walker "Panek Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The real superstar is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Panek Vineyard, which has an opaque purple color, a scent of pen ink, notes of blackberry, blueberry and cassis along with some subtle background vanillin and baking spices, a wonderful floral note, and an opulent, full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel. The finish goes on for a good 45+ seconds. This is a stunner to drink now as well as over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $236.00

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 3-bottle lot of 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2010 Fanti Brunello di Montalcino (94JS, 94WS, 92RP, 91VN, 90WE), 1-bottle of 2010 Marchesi de' Frescobaldi "Castelgiocondo" Brunello di Montalcino (97JS, 94RP, 93VN, 93WS, 92W&S, 91WE), and 1-bottle of 2010 Marco Lazzeretti Brunello di Montalcino (94JS, 92WS). Of the 2010 Marchesi de' Frescobaldi "Castelgiocondo" Brunello di Montalcino,James Suckling writes: "Aromas of warm stones, dark fruits and walnuts follow to a full body, soft tannins and a savory finish. This shows ripe fruit and salty undertones that give it a wonderful juiciness. It's dense and tight now but will give so much pleasure in the future. Best ever from here. Drink or hold." (10/2015)

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. (AG) 95+" (11/2013)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 1976 Umberto Fiore Spanna del Piemonte Vino da Tavola.
Starting Bid: $47.00

Starting Bid: $85.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Sinegal "Reserve" St.Helena Cabernet Sauvignon ((94-96RP), 95JD, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exhibits a terrific intensity and richness and could easily equal what they achieved with their 2013 Reserve. I'll wait until it's in bottle to provide more detailed notes. (RP)" (12/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (96WE, 96WS, 94RP). Wine Enthusiast: "This wine, Australia’s most famous, is literally black. Aroma of sweet charred American oak dominates, with associated vanilla. Underneath is pepper, tobacco, spice and blackberry; complex and beautiful. Tremendous extract, marvelously thick like fruit purée, enormous and bone dry. The finish lasts forever. A huge, effusive wine that needs 15 years to settle down. 89% Shiraz and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon." (10/1999)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Charles Heidsieck "Blanc des Millénaires" Brut Champagne (95DC, 95RP, 95VN, 95WS, 94ST, 93JS, 93W&S). Vinous: "The 1995 Brut Blanc des Millenaires shows just how compelling this often overlooked vintage can be. Layers of lemon, pastry spices, crushed rocks and savory herbs literally jump from the glass in this exquisite, perfumed, beautifully delineated Champagne. The 1995 shows lovely flavor complexity and nuance from its extended time in bottle, yet it also retains plenty of freshness, verve and acidity. This is a great showing from Charles Heidsieck. The 1995 was made before the tenure of the house's current team, headed by CEO Cécile Bonnefond. It will be very interesting to see what develops at this historic property over the coming years. (AG)" (10/2012)

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 2-bottle lot of 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Syrah (99RP, 96VN, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A prodigious effort that possesses overflowing richness and depth, the 2008 Syrah The Duel (88% Syrah, 6% Grenache and 6% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard) delivers an off-the-hook drinking experience with decadent cassis, blackberry, smoked meats, crushed flowers and hints of spice all soaring from the glass. A full-bodied, unctuous Syrah that stays fresh and elegant, with vibrant acidity, it needs a solid decant if drinking anytime soon and will see its 20th birthday in fine form. Drink now-2028. (JD)" (08/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 100JD, 100RP, 98VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scarecrow is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two acres of old vines planted in 1945 by John Daniel and dry farmed. Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes sashaying out of the glass with tantalizing notions of violets, lavender, Black Forest cake, mulberries, tobacco leaf and fragrant earth with a core of warm cassis, kirsch, Chinese five spice, rose hip tea and cedar chest. The palate is full-bodied and super concentrated yet possesses great energy with vibrant red and black fruits and loads of mineral accents, framed by very ripe, super fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long with the most incredible perfume. Hedonistically, undeniably and deliciously perfect. (LPB)" (10/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 96JS, 96RP, 95WE, 94VN, 93WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possibly the Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage is Shafer’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. Last year I thought it was a strong effort, but it’s even better now that it’s been bottled. With an opaque black/purple color and notes of subtle burning charcoal embers, blueberry, blackberry and graphite, the wine has a certain Bordelais minerality, but then the richness of Napa kicks in. It’s full-bodied (somewhat unusual for a 2011) with lighter tannins, and no doubt the wine will be on a faster evolutionary track than vintages such as 2010, 2012 and 2013. Nevertheless, the Shafers and Elias said this was the toughest vintage they’d ever experienced. To be able to produce a compelling wine like this is a testament to their extraordinary skills and craftsmanship. This wine can be drunk now or cellared f

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990-1992 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical, including 1-bottle of 1990 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93VN, 91WS), 1-bottle of 1991 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96ST, 93RP, 93VN, 91WS), and 1-bottle of 1992 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 97VN). Of the 1992 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon,Vinous writes: "The 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is simply stunning. Wow. The fruit is so vibrant, alive and expressive. A wine of extraordinary harmony, the 1992 flows across the palate with voluptuous fruit. Silky tannins give the 1992 a measure of textural finesse that is compelling. Rose petals, sweet red berries and flowers build to a deep, resonant finish that is striking for its purity and beauty. I have also had the 1992 Napa Valley Cabernet recently, confirming this is a great Dunn vintage all around. Readers holding the 1992 are in for a real treat. (AG)" (02/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Schrader Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2002 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 93ST) and 1-bottle of 2002 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96WS, 94ST). Of the 2002 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS is one of those utterly profound wines that elicits oohs and aahs. Once you put your nose in the glass, you know you are in the presence of one of the world’s greatest wines. Aromas of pen ink, forest floor, spring flowers, blue and black fruits, sweet camphor and subtle charcoal emerge from this inky/purple-colored, extremely youthful 2002. As it hits the palate, not a component is out of place. The alcohol, acidity, wood and tannin are all perfectly assembled in a masterful presentation of balance, power, finesse, complexity and potenti

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (99RP, 98DC, 98JS, 98VN, 98WS, 97ST, 96WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. This could turn out to be a candidate for perfection in another 8-10 years. It will drink well for 30-50 years, but will always be much more approachable and charming than its 2010 counterpart. Drink 2022-2065. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Gran Reserva Rosado Rioja (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The unique and personal 2009 Viña Tondonia Rosado Gran Reserva is a little darker than the 2008 I tasted next to it. It also feels a little riper and nuttier, with some traces of ripe apricots and flowers. It's also fuller and not as sharp as the 2008 and has a dry, chalky/stony palate. These are unique wines that develop in bottle for a long time. (LG) 93+" (06/2019)
Starting Bid: $480.00

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 1999 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (95VN, (90-93RP), 93WS, 92ST). Vinous: "The tasting ends on a high note, as the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is deeply expressive, despite its obvious youth. Here it is the wine's sense of energy that stands out most. Vivid, nuanced and structured, the 1999 is a wine to cellar for another 5-10 years at a minimum to allow the flavors to flesh out. Readers lucky enough to own the 1999 who can wait a few years will be very happy. (AG) 95+" (02/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Joseph Drouhin Montrachet Grand Cru "Marquis de Laguiche" (97WS, 94VN, (92-93RP), 90BH, 90ST). Wine Spectator: "Intense. Concentrated, almost oily in texture and evoking stone notes and a strong sense of place, this wine just keeps unfolding its complex flavors across the palate. With terrific harmony and balance, along with a vibrant structure and finesse, this is about as good as Chardonnay gets. Endless finish. Best from 2007 through 2025. (BS)" (12/2004)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Syrah (OWC - 100JS, 99RP, 98VN, 97JD, 94WS) in original wood. James Suckling: "Smelling this takes my breath away. Cloves, floras, metal shavings, blackberries and smoked meat. Mandarin zest, too. Full body with a perfect balance of ultra-fine tannins and great complexity. Goes on for minutes. Sets a new standard of Syrah for California. " (12/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Fairchild "Stones No.1 - Beckstoffer Las Piedras" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 97RP, 96VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Stones No. 1 conjures notions of baked cherries, plum pudding and cloves with touches of red roses, spice cake and sandalwood. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has a chewy frame and a lovely earthiness coming through on the long finish. (LPB) 97+" (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $630.00

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 magnum of 2008 Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru "Vieilles Vignes" (1.5L) ((94-96BH), 96JG, 96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Clos de la Roche Cuvee Vieilles Vignes is a silky, elegant wine. Freshly cut roses, dark red fruit and minerals sit on a core of utterly refined tannins. This shows stunning balance in a weightless style that gains energy on the clean, focused finish. This is a fabulous effort from Ponsot." (05/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 La Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (96RP, 94JG, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Mission Haut Brion is a wine that just gives so much pleasure that it seems almost immoral to criticize. For sure, it is not in the same league as the awe-inspiring 1989, yet it has such an engaging, quintessential La Mission bouquet full of warm gravel, chestnut, morels and bay leaf scents that you just fall instantly under its charms. It seems to just grow in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with great depth but is still a little grainy in texture, and I noticed how it evolved almost a Musigny-like personality with time in the glass. I suggested back in 2014 that it might improve with continued bottle age. Perhaps now I believe that it has reached the top of its plateau, yet the substance and the persistence—the energy—of this Pessac-Léognan suggests that it will give 20 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2006 Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noëllat Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru ((94-95JG), (91-94BH), 93WS, 92ST). John Gilman: "The 2006 Clos Vougeot from Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat is stunning, and is clearly the best wine in the cellar this year. The bouquet is deep, very pure and refined for a young Clos Vougeot, as it jumps from the glass in a sappy blaze of black cherries, plums, blood orange, cocoa powder, impressive minerality for Clos Vougeot and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and utterly seamless, with a great core of pure fruit, superb acidity that lends precision to the focus and will keep the fruit fresh for decades to come, and a very long, complex and ripely tannic finish. This wine came in at 13.2 % alcohol and was raised in fifty percent new oak, both of which I think have contributed to it clearly outdistancing the next two wines in 2006. A great Clos Vougeot. " (11/2007)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2001 Giuseppe e Figlio Mascarello "Monprivato" Barolo (95RP, 94JD, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Barolo Monprivato is striking. It boasts gorgeous textural depth and richness to match its highly expressive, compelling aromatics. The wine has begun to soften a touch. Though not at all forbidding at this stage, the 2001 Monprivato remains an infant with at least two more decades of fine drinking ahead. This is a gorgeous effort from Mauro Mascarello. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2031. (AG)" (04/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Domaine Armand Rousseau Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Clos des Ruchottes" ((94-96RP), 95JG, 94BH, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes Grand Cru comes from the domain’s monopole: populated by one-third vines aged around 30-years and the remainder around 65-years old (see December issue for more details.) This year it sees 20% new oak. It has wonderful delineation on the nose with heightened mineralite from the limestone soils. The palate is medium-bodied with a precise opening. There is a wave of pure, clinically defined fresh raspberry and wild strawberry notes that dovetails into quite a stern, very linear finish. This is uncompromising at the moment, an aloof yet compelling Ruchottes-Chambertin that does not quite possess the completeness of say, Mugneret-Gibourg’s, but clearly as the substance to age extremely well. (NM)" (12/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1999 Nöel Verset Cornas (94JG, 94VN, 91JD, 91ST). Vinous: "From an outstanding northern Rhône vintage, Verset's 1999 Cornas is still youthfully fruity and floral on the nose, offering aromas of fresh red berries, candied flowers and peppery spices, with a smoky mineral nuance slowly emerging. Juicy black raspberry and cola flavors expand in the mouth and pick up hints of cola and licorice, along with a touch of succulent herbs. Bitter chocolate and fruitcake notes emerge on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a jolt of juicy acidity. I'd hold onto this one for a while as it drinks like a much younger wine now and holds excellent promise. (JR)" (01/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Quilceda Creek "Palengat Vineyard" Horse Heaven Hills Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, the sensational 2014 Palengat Vineyard is loaded with notions of chocolate covered plums, licorice, roasted herbs, and graphite/lead pencil shavings. Up there with the of the top vintages of the cuvee, this full-bodied, rounded and hedonistic 2014 shines in the vintage, has no hard edges, gorgeous purity, and plenty of ripe, sweet tannin. It’s a serious mouthful of a Cabernet and will drink nicely for 10-15 years. (JD)" (06/2017)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 97RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the greatest wines in the vintage is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a higher elevation hillside vineyard in Oakville that was raised in 90% new French oak barrels. Just magical stuff that has incredible aromatics of crème de cassis, white flowers, huge minerality, violets, and scorched earth. This is followed by a massive, opulent, yet weightless wine that has off the charts purity of fruit, fine, fine tannin, perfect balance, and a finish that won’t quit. This legendary beauty will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age and keep for three to four decades." (12/2017)
Starting Bid: $730.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Alpha Omega "Era" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95RP, 95WE, 94JS, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Alpha Omega’s 2013 ERA is a selection of the best lots from all of their single vineyards, and even though it is a proprietary red, this version is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. The wine is tightly coiled, very reserved, with relatively high tannin, but a saturated purple color, and shows notes of charcoal, incense, white flowers and black and blue fruits. It’s all there, but this wine begs for 5-8 years of bottle age before consumption. It should last for 25-30 years as well. (RP)" (10/2015)

Bid on this magnum of 1999 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (1.5L) (97WE, 95ST, 95VN, 95WS, 94RP). Wine Enthusiast: "Jean-Louis, the son of Gérard Chave, is now in charge of the family business, as well as being president of the Hermitage wine producers. He is continuing the family tradition of making powerful statements of Syrah from Hermitage, combining massive structure and over-powering perfumes. This 1999 seems to have the best of the traditional world of tannic immensity and the modern world of beautiful, ripe fruit. A wine that will age for a very long time. (RV)" (06/2002)

Bid on this bottle of 1997 Georges Roumier Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (93JG, 93RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Bonnes Mares is medium to dark ruby-colored, and offers beguiling aromas of red and black fruits, stones, and earth. It explodes on the palate, with super-expressive candied red cherries, as well as licorice and road tar flavors. This rich, dense, gorgeously structured, powerful, and expansive wine is masculine and broad-shouldered, yet opulent and hedonistic. Medium to full-bodied, complex, and harmonious … (PR)" (10/1999)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 98RP, 96VN, 95WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon included fruit from the 2-acre, old vine parcel that is nearly 70 years of age. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious notes of spring flowers, blackberries, black raspberries and wet rocks. The wine’s gravelly minerality and spectacular opulence and density make it an instant classic. This massive, full-bodied 2012 should drink beautifully for 15-20+ years. It showed incredibly well last year, and it still reveals the potential to possibly merit a 3-digit score – it’s that special. One of the classic wines of Napa Valley, Scarecrow’s Cabernet Sauvignons are made by well-known winemaking consultant Celia Welch. This historic vineyard in Rutherford, which owns some of the oldest vines in all of Napa, continues to turn out some of Napa’s most profound Cabernet Sauvignons. (RP)" (10/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Sta. Rita Hills Magnum Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (1.5L) (97RP, 95ST, 92WS) and 1-bottle of 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Syrah (1.5L) (99RP, 96VN, 95ST, 94WS). Of the 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Syrah (1.5L),Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "A prodigious effort that possesses overflowing richness and depth, the 2008 Syrah The Duel (88% Syrah, 6% Grenache and 6% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard) delivers an off-the-hook drinking experience with decadent cassis, blackberry, smoked meats, crushed flowers and hints of spice all soaring from the glass. A full-bodied, unctuous Syrah that stays fresh and elegant, with vibrant acidity, it needs a solid decant if drinking anytime soon and will see its 20th birthday in fine form. Drink now-2028.
