1974 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1974 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90JG). John Gilman: "The fruit for this bottling came from vineyards in the Stag’s Leap district and was first released by the winery in October of 1976 for $7.50 per bottle. This was only the third vintage for Bernard Portet at Clos du Val, as the inaugural vintage here was the 1972, so this was still very early days in the history of this estate. At our tasting, the 1974 Clos du Val was not as suave and refined in profile as the superb 1978 bottlings I wrote about a few months back, with a slight coarseness to the tannins on the backend that have reportedly been part of the profile of this wine since it was released, and which remain to this day. The winemaking is just not as fine-tuned here in ’74 as would be the case a few years later, and one has to assume Monsieur Portet was still feeling his way with fruit from the Stag’s Leap district, after having been born and raised in Bordeaux. That said, this is

1974 Latour, Pauillac
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1974 Latour, Pauillac. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In this mediocre year of rather green, stalky, hollow wines, Latour produced one of the very best wines of the vintage. Still not fully mature, this dark ruby wine has good fruit, a medium body, surprising depth and ripeness for the vintage, and a sinewy, tannic finish. It avoids the telltale harshness and fruit deficiency found in so many 1974s. " (01/1998)

1974 Mayacamas "Napa Mountain" Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 1974 Mayacamas "Napa Mountain" Cabernet Sauvignon (98JG, 97WS, 95VN). John Gilman: "The 1974 vintage of Mayacamas Cabernet included 8% Merlot in the blend and was released originally in October of 1978 for $9.50 per bottle. This was reported by John Tilson back in 1980 to be a massively powerful and tannic example of the vintage in need of decades of bottle age to soften up and become approachable. At the time, he thought the wine was excellent in potential, but not likely to match the brilliant 1970 vintage here. Along with the Heitz Martha’s Vineyard, this remains my favorite wine of the vintage, and the wine was stunning at our tasting this past September. The bouquet is deep, pure and riveting, delivering a fine constellation of cassis, black cherries, cigar ash, gorgeously complex soil tones, black truffles, cigar smoke and a nice touch of chipotles in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and almost sappy at the core, with great foc
