Bid on this bottle of 2003 Lokoya Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect effort is the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Keyes Vineyard from Howell Mountain. There are 524 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its extraordinary perfume of graphite, spring flowers and creme de cassis is followed by a blockbuster red-fruited palate displaying a velvety texture, silky tannins and a 60-second finish. It is unquestionably the most profound wine I have ever tasted from Howell Mountain. Some secondary nuances are apparent, but the wine still seems like an adolescent. It is capable of another 15 years of cellaring. (RP)" (06/2013)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2014 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93RP, 93WS, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another sensational appellation release is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from an early vintage that was over two weeks ahead of average, it has tons of spice, black raspberry, currants and blackberry characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and no shortage of depth or length. Already impossible to resist, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (09/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Andremily California Mourvèdre ((97-99JD), 99RP, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Mourvèdre is composed of 89% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah and 2% Viognier coming from the Alta Mesa Vineyard in Santa Barbara County and Larner Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. Seventy percent whole cluster was employed, and the wine was aged for 21 months in French barriques, 50% new. Deep purple-black colored, it slips out of the glass with gorgeous fragrant earth, truffles and garrigue scents over a blackberry preserves and baked plums core plus nuances of chargrill and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and seductively generous in the mouth, it has beautifully plush, velvety tannins matched by fantastic freshness, finishing long and savory. Only 210 cases and 'a few' magnums were produced. (LPB) " (06/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Philip Togni Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (97VN, 96RP, 95JG). Vinous: "Togni's 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate opens with extraordinary aromatics. The sweet tobacco, gravel, smoke, leather and spice notes that have developed in bottle are utterly captivating. Rich, deep and inviting, the 1996 simply has it all. With time, the 1996 has developed into a magnificent Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (12/2016)

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

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

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

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Kistler "Cuvée Cathleen" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay (99RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Cuvée Cathleen Chardonnay comes from a rockier block of the Kistler Vineyard, possessing a lot of broken shale and planted predominately to Wente clone selection with a bit of Mount Eden clone. This wine is a 20-barrel cuvée selection from the best of that block. The 2014 Chardonnay Cuvée Cathleen has a youthfully subdued nose of pebbles and wet slate over a core of grapefruit, peach blossoms and mandarin peel, plus the faintest hint of fresh herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is restrained at this early stage, offering tightly wound citrus and mineral notes off-set by refreshing acidity. It finishes long and multi-layered. It is tempting to drink now, but I’d give it 2-3 years for that real 'wow' experience and drink it over the next decade or more. (LPB)" (02/2017)
Starting Bid: $230.00

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

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1971 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served at the property, it has been some ten years since I last tasted this off-vintage First Growth. At 42-years of age, is offers a simple bouquet of wild hedgerow, sous-bois and a musty, second-hand cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with light grainy tannins and a pleasing soft texture. Strangely, it feels more aligned to a merlot-dominated wine rather than a Cabernet at the finish. This bottle of perfect provenance was sound, but I suspect that others will be in decline. Drink now. (NM, Wine Journal)" (11/2012)
Starting Bid: $1,140.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Sloan Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97RP, 96VN, 95ST, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Proprietary Red is very deep garnet colored with a hint of purple. It offers up wonderfully bold, expressive notes of crème de cassis, black cherry compote and mincemeat pie with wafts of bay leaves, incense, Chinese five spice and hoisin plus wafts of chargrill and yeast extract. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, the palate is laden with layer upon layer of exotic spice-laced black fruits with a firm yet plush frame and very long finish with some licorice notes coming through. (LPB)" (12/2019)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2001 La Gerla Brunello di Montalcino (92WE, 92WS). Wine Enthusiast: "This wine left our panel deeply divided and tested our threshold for modern Brunello. One panelist loved the chocolate fudge, black cherry, fennel seed, bacon fat and toasted notes. To a second panelist, the wine was disjointed and over-oaked. *Editors' Choice*" (04/2006)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1989 Léoville Barton, St-Julien (92WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: "A delicious, well-structured Bordeaux, with plenty of ripe fruit, beautiful berry, green tobacco and cherry character. Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. (JS)" (05/1999)
Starting Bid: $440.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Bevan "Bab's Cuvée Showket Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Bab’s Cuvee Showket Vineyard shows quite a bit more freshness than the Julie’s Cuvee. Dark red fruit, mineral flowers and spices flow effortlessly from this focused, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon. The intensity of the fruit flows through beautifully to the fleshy, expressive finish. Bab’s Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 7) aged in 100% new French oak barrels, 60% Darnajou and 40% Taransaud, a different mix of coopers than Bevan uses for Julie’s Cuvee, which is also clone 7 Cabernet from Showket Vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (12/2011)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP, 90ST, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-colored 1995 Quilceda Creek contains 12% Merlot, a high figure for this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine. It reveals an expressive, ripe, and violet-laced nose as well as wonderful layers of blackberry, red currant, cassis, and floral flavors. This medium-to-full-bodied, elegant and refined wine is intensely concentrated and flavorful... In its youth this silky-textured wine is quintessential Golitzen, polished, precise, focused, and gracefully exhibiting highly-defined sweet fruit. (PR)" (10/1998)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2013 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 99JS, 98JD, 98RP, 98WE, 97VN, 94WS) in original wood. James Suckling: "Wonderful floral aromas with perfumed roses plus hints of blackcurrants and spearmint. Full-bodied and so powerful and muscular but always showing the brightness and beauty of fruit. Winemakers say this reminds them of the 1978, their first year. It certainly has the structure — "those tannins" as they put it. Finish is so impressive with tar, iron and spices. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Pichat "Les Grandes Places" Côte-Rôtie (93JD, 93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fermented with the stems, the medium to full-bodied 2016 Cote Rotie Les Grandes Places reflects that to some extent in its complex aromas of bay leaf, mint, green olives and raspberries. Like the other 2016s from Pichat, it's firm and tannic, yet it seems to have the requisite concentration to age well. Drink 2022-2030. (JC)" (10/2018)

Bid on this half-bottle of 1998 Sine Qua Non "El Corazon" California Rose (375ml).
Starting Bid: $1,500.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99WE, 97RP, 96ST, 94WS). Wine Enthusiast: "The flagship wine from Quilceda Creek offers exotic scents of plum, cassis, loam, coffee and pine sap, a rich and evocative blend. The wine delivers all that is promised and more; it is deep and dense with flavor, polished, focused and persistent. Vanilla, espresso, fine tannins, luscious acids and cascading fruits. *Editors' Choice* (PG)" (02/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (99JD, 99RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky purple colored, the nose of the 2016 Materium Cabernet Sauvignon takes off and absolutely soars with incredible blackberry pie, warm blackcurrants, wild blueberries and kirsch scents plus underlying vanilla pod, milk chocolate, espresso and lavender suggestions. The palate is opulently rich and full-bodied, yet it has bold freshness and exquisitely fine-grained tannins supporting layer upon layer of perfumed fruit, finishing very long. (LPB)" (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Grace Family Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not unexpectedly, this is one of the most stunning wines of my 1985 tastings. The wine possesses all the elements of great Cabernet Sauvignon - a sensationally opaque purple color, a huge, smoky, vanillin, wonderfully ripe cassis-scented nose that leaps from the glass, layers of lavishly rich, opulent, velvety-textured Cabernet fruit, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and adequate acidity for focus. This gorgeously rich, yet still young, unevolved, tasty Cabernet Sauvignon has years of evolution ahead. (RP)" (04/1995)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru (1.5L) (96BH, 96W&S, 96WS, 95JG, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "An exotic white, showing apricot, vanilla cream and a hint of coconut on a heavy-weight frame. This is unevolved and impressive, with a lot of spice on the finish. The lasting impression is sweet fruit, so be patient. (BS)" (04/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Poggio il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino (96WS, 91WE). Wine Spectator: "Dried dark fruit on the nose, verging on date and prune. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and supersilky tannins. This is a deep and beautiful red, delivering lots of subtle character. Fascinating. One of the undiscovered treasures of the vintage. Best after 2011. *Ranked #11, Top 100 Wines of 2009* (JS)" (04/2009)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015-2016 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2015 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay (95CG, 95WE, 94RP, 93VN, 92WS) and 2-bottles of 2016 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay (95VN, 94JD, 94RP). Of the 2015 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay,Wine Enthusiast writes: "From one of the older blocks of the famous vineyard, once looked after by this winemaker, this wine is beautifully golden in color with a reduced, salty nose of caramelized pretzel. Robustly built, it shows fleshy, lush layers of honey and tropical richness. (VB)" (07/2018)

Bid on this 8-half-bottle lot of 1996 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Straw-gold. Marzipan, honey and toasted hazelnut on the nose. Moderately viscous and currently rather oaky. Has an impressively chewy texture but is not yet displaying its personality. Finishes with some youthful harshness." (07/1999)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 & 2001 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes Half-Bottle Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1990 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml) (93JS, 93ST, 92JG, 92RP) and 1-bottle of 2001 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml) (96JS, 95WS, 93ST, 92RP). Of the 2001 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml),James Suckling writes: "Wow. This has a seamless texture and wonderful depth of fruit with dried pineapple, pear and hints of honey. Full body, very sweet and dense. Superb. Sliced white truffles. Fantastic. Drink or hold." (02/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Krug "Clos de Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (96RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 Clos du Mesnil, from a warmer year, makes for a fascinating contrast to the cool inward 1988. It is a bigger, fatter wine that caresses the palate with layers of expansive, generous fruit. Sweet scents of caramel, hazelnuts and honey add complexity to the fruit. Despite its burnished, textured fruit, the 1989 remains light on its feet and superbly well-balanced but it is at, or close to, peak. To put things in perspective, the 1989 was harvested at the beginning of September -- the 7th and 8th to be exact -- while the 1988 was harvested between September 30th and October 2nd. (AG)" (07/2011)
Starting Bid: $1,280.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1999 Giuseppe Mascarello "Monprivato" Barolo (97VN, 93JG, 93ST, 92RP). Vinous: "The 1999 Barolo Monprivato is once again stellar. In this tasting, it is the wine's flamboyant fruit and super-expressive aromatics that jump from the glass. Sweet red cherries, pomegranate, hard candy, rose petals and mint meld together as this generous, resonant Barolo shows off its pure and total sense of majesty. Spices and a hint of blood orange develop in a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors. In 1999, Monprivato is just about as good as it gets. Mauro Mascarello did not bottle his Riserva Ca' d'Morissio in 1999; instead all the best fruit was blended into the Monprivato. Today, the 1999 is utterly thrilling. It's as simple as that. (AG)" (08/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is big, dark and juicy. There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish. Elements of fleshiness give the impression the 2006 might drink well relatively early, until the massive tannins set in. Floral notes add freshness on the finish. This is another fabulous wine from Randy Dunn. (AG)" (12/2011)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1994 & 1997 Fonseca Vintage Port Magnum Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1994 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L) (100WS, 97RP, 96DC) and 1-bottle of 1997 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L) (93DC, 93RP, 93ST, 91WS). Of the 1994 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L),Wine Spectator writes: "Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port. *#1 Wine of the Year 1997, Collectibles* (JS)" (04/1997)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1981 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (91RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is close to full maturity, but it is capable of holding for another two decades. It reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth, this medium ruby/garnet-colored wine displays a delicacy of fruit and sweet attack, but subtle, well-defined flavors ranging from tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake. This is a savory, soft Lafite-Rothschild that is pleasing to both the intellect and the palate. (RP)" (12/1997)
Starting Bid: $1,560.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97JD, 97JS, 97RP, 94WE, 91VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah Armada Vineyard is superb, wafting from the glass with a complex and savory bouquet of dark chocolate, peat, candied violets, plums and marinading meat. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and layered, with a deep core of sapid fruit framed by powdery, fine-grained tannins and concluding with a saline finish. Seamlessly integrated and elegant, the 2015 was harvested on September 9 and fermented with 60% to 70% whole clusters, finishing with 13.7% natural alcohol. It was matured in foudres and demi-muids, seeing 10% new oak and—as has been the case since 2011—no smaller cooperage. (WK)" (06/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040. (RP)" (01/2000)

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion (1.5L) (99RP, 95ST, 94JS, 94WS, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky, bluish/black/purple, with notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this is a powerful, full-bodied Troplong Mondot. All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made by Christine Valette and her husband Xavier Pariente with the consultancy help of Michel Rolland. I'm not sure what the heady alcohol level is in Troplong Mondot in 2010 (it certainly must be in the 15%+ range), but it is well-concealed behind the extravagant, richness, full-bodied power, and pure nobility of this majestic wine. Forget this for 5-7 years and drink it over the following three decades. (RP)" (02/2013)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1999 Lisini "Ugolaia" Brunello di Montalcino (93WS, 92WE, 91VN). Wine Spectator: "Sweet plum and berry aromas follow through to a full body, with ripe, pretty fruit, silky tannins and a round, juicy finish. Still a little chewy. Could use a year or two more of bottle age. (JS, Web Only-2010)"

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1983 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (94DC, 94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Las-Cases off-line at The Square. Many years have passed since I last tasted the ’83 Las-Cases. It is reticent at first, like and old tongue-tied friend entering the room, then it blossoms with aeration offering scents of leather, chestnut, brambly black fruit and freshly rolled tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with melted red-berry fruits, firm tannins and superb balance. Hints of bell pepper and sandalwood furnish the long, harmonious finish. This is a wonderful wine for the vintage that is drinking perfectly now. (NM)" (07/2011)
Starting Bid: $675.00

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)
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Penfolds "Bin 707" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia (94RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet in color, the nose is intensely scented with aromas of dried cherries and blackcurrant cordial over a pleasantly meaty / earthy undercurrent plus whiffs of menthol and dried lavender. Concentrated in the medium to full bodied mouth, it has a good amount of enlivening acid cutting through the dense, evolved fruit with a high level of approachable / softening tannins and long finish. (LPB)" (01/2012)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Andremily "No. 4" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L) (99JD, 97RP, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 No. 4 checks in as a blend of 90% Syrah, 6% Viognier, and 4% Mourvèdre that spent 22 months in 70% new French oak. Sporting an inky purple color, it offers a killer perfume of blackberries, blueberries, exotic flowers, orange marmalade, violets, Asian spices, and graphite. Getting a serious "Wow" in the notes for its sensational complexity, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, stunning purity of fruit, and a focused, chiseled yet voluptuous texture. This beauty has everything: complexity, depth, richness, purity, and elegance." (10/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 92VN, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very typical wine from this appellation. Spices, grilled herbs and new leather add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially admire the finesse and fabulous overall sense of harmony here. This is a highly representative Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (12/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 97DC, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are roughly 600 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, all of which comes from the Weitz Vineyard on the eastern Vaca Mountain hillside of Oakville at an elevation of about 1,000 feet above the Silverado Trail. This is shallow soil interspersed with loads of pebbles and stones. This wine is incredible first-growth material – a magical Cabernet Sauvignon with an opaque purple color, an extraordinary nose of blackberry and cassis, white flowers, crushed rock and minerality followed by a full-bodied majestic mouthfeel with phenomenal balance, purity and overall equilibrium. Stunningly rich and impressive, this wine will hit its peak in 8-10 years and has the potential to last 40-50 years. For those who keep track of such things, the wine was completely aged in 100% new Darnajou and Taransaud barrels. (RP)" (10/2015)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1998 Chimney Rock Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. According to the Wine Spectator: "Medium-weight, with spice, herb, currant and cedary oak flavors that are pleasant enough..." (10/01)
Starting Bid: $160.00

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

Bid on this bottle of 1969 Gaja Barbaresco. This Barbaresco is from the region's earlier beginnings as a serious red wine appellation. For the most part, Barbaresco was pretty much living in near total obscurity until the 1960s, when Giovanni Gaja (Angelo's father) began proving what could come of these vineyards. In the '70s, his son Angelo introduced single-vineyard offerings, and the rest is Italian wine history!
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95WE, 94ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Materium comes from a single block called the Weitz Vineyard at a 1,000-foot elevation on the eastern hillsides of Oakville. It would be hard to improve upon the virtually perfect 2007, but the 2008 is not far behind. Notes of graphite, blueberry, charcoal, spring flowers, and some background oak are followed by a dense, purple-colored wine with full-bodied power, great elegance, precision, and purity. This is again an extraordinary effort from Maybach. (RP)" (12/2010)

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2016 Glaetzer "Bishop" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (95JH, 92RP, 91WS, 90JS, 90W&S). James Halliday: "From 35-120o vines, open-fermented, post-ferment maceration, matured for 15 months in 40% new hogsheads, 90% French, 10% American. Deep crimson-purple; a complex wine, both in terms of its savoury flavours and its texture. Black fruits provide the core of the palate, with graphite, earth and tannins all on parade. It has absorbed and totally integrated the oak, which suits the wine to a T." (08/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Bruno Clavelier Vosne Romanee 1er Cru "Les Beaux Monts" Vieilles Vignes.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1997 Suduiraut, Sauternes (92JG, 92ST, 90WS). John Gilman: "The 1997 Suduiraut has reached a really lovely plateau in its evolution and is drinking splendidly at age nineteen. The bouquet is deep, pure and shows lovely secondary layers of complexity in its mélange of honey, fresh apricot, oranges, crème brulée, soil tones and a gentle framing of buttery oak. With air distinctive notes of clove and marmalade blossomed as well on the nose. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and focused, with a fine core of fruit, lovely, zesty acidity and impressive length and grip on the à point finish. Just a lovely, classic vintage of Suduiraut that is just reaching its apogee, but which will continue to drink splendidly for at least a couple of decades. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 & 2011 Napa Valley Red Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2009 Patel Napa Valley Red Wine (92VN) and 1-bottle of 2011 Lancaster Estate Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the 2009 Patel Napa Valley Red Wine,Vinous writes: "The 2009 Red Wine is quite a bit different from the 2010 in that it has a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, less Malbec and no Petit Verdot. Grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and incense lead to an expressive core of fruit as this heady, sensual wine opens up in the glass. The 2009 is a bit more structured and less overly fruit driven than the 2010. It, too, could use another few years in bottle. I really like the way the wine comes together beautifully in the glass. The blend is 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Malbec. (AG)" (12/2012)
