Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94JS, 92JD, 92VN, 90WS). James Suckling: "Lots of the blue fruits and dried flowers on the nose. Oyster shell too. Medium to full body, linear and vibrant. Energetic. Clean and intense finish. " (05/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1994 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It offers deep and compelling aromas of red and black fruits, lead pencil, and traces of oak spices. This full-bodied, concentrated, and chewy wine is thick, dense, and gorgeously defined for such a massive wine. Its combination of power and elegance brought to mind the 1986 Margaux, one of the finest wines ever produced by that illustrious estate... This is a truly magnificent wine, and it will age remarkably well... The dark ruby-colored 1994 Quilceda Creek is an extraordinary wine that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as California's top offerings. I recently served a bottle of it blind to Robert Parker amidst wines from Dominus, Harlan Estate, Colgin, and others. While it did stand out as being different (it is much more Bordeaux-like than its California brethren) it was their qualitative equal. (PR)" (10/1998)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Peter Michael "L'Esprit des Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (94RP, 93JS, 93ST, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a similar blend with slightly less Cabernet Sauvignon and more Merlot, the 2010 L’Esprit des Pavots represents 1,580 cases. It is a beautiful wine to enjoy now and over the next 10-15 years. Loaded with black fruit, licorice, bouquet garni and forest floor characteristics, it is an opulent, round, delicious 2010. (RP)" (12/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (98JS, 98VN, 95RP, 94ST). Vinous: "There's not much to say about Randy Dunn's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain that I haven't already said or written. A classic Howell Mountain Cabernet, the 2010 hits the palate with scents of graphite, pencil shavings, inky blue/purplish fruit, sage and spices, all backed up with swaths of broad yet impeccably balanced tannins. What a fascinating contrast it is to taste this next to David Abreu's Thorevilos as we round out the evening. The Dunn is powerful, structured and incisive, with magnificent expression of site and fabulous overall balance. Dunn’s 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain will go down as one of the great wines of this vintage. Readers have to be patient, but there is no question the 2010 is a real stunner. Knowing how hard it will be to wait, I expect the 2010 will start to open up around age ten. (AG) 98+" (06/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Les Pruliers" ((94-96RP), (92-94BH), 94JG, (90-93ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Pruliers is wonderfully complete. All the elements that make the 2010s at this estate so striking are present in the glass. An open, expressive bouquet melds seamlessly into red fruit in this stunning wine. The finest, silkiest of tannins frame the fruit through to the supple, inviting finish. Veins of minerality give the Pruliers its focus and balance. Everything is simply in the right place. The Pruliers is made from two parcels of 50+ year-old vines. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. I have to say, this is a stunning set of wines from Denis and Bertrand Chevillon. (AG) 94-96+" (02/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Saxum "G2" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (99JD, (94-96RP), 96VN, 93WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Checking in as a blend of 42% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, 20% Tannat, and the balance Zinfandel, the 2016 G2 is one of the standouts in this truly stacked lineup. It sports a vivid ruby/purple color as well as a rocking bouquet of black raspberries, new saddle leather, sweet garrigue, white pepper, and blood orange. Deep, rich, and layered, yet also light on its feet, incredibly complex, and perfectly balanced, it's an incredible wine from this up and coming vineyard that readers should snatch up. It will be even better with 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise in cold cellars for 10-15 years." (11/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Aubert "Ritchie Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (97RP, 96VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The old vines certainly show well in the 2014 Chardonnay Ritchie, with an almost Alsatian-like petrol nose that is starting to come on. This wine that is full-bodied, with incredible ripeness, purity and overall equilibrium, offers up plenty of tropical fruit and citrus, white peach and pineapple. … Mark Aubert continues to set the bar incredibly high for the world-class quality of his Burgundian-styled, remarkable Chardonnays, which come from relatively cool sites spread from Rutherford in Napa Valley to the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013-2015 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah Vetical, including 1-bottle of 2013 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah (96RP, 96VN), 1-bottle of 2014 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah (96VN, 90RP), and 1-bottle of 2015 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah (93VN, 90WS). Of the 2013 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah,Vinous writes: "Another real head-turner, Turley's Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard has so much to say. The flavors are bold, inky and explosive in the classic Hayne style, but there is also plenty of nuance lurking beneath all of that intensity. Blueberry jam, dark spices, menthol, licorice, plums and bittersweet chocolate flow from a virile, imposing Petite that will drink well for many, many years. (AG)" (10/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Cayuse Walla Walla Valley Syrah Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2008 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (100WE, 99JD, 97RP, 95VN) and 1-bottle of 2008 Cayuse "En Cerise" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (99RP, 98JD, 98WE, 96WS, 93VN). Of the 2008 Cayuse "Bionic Frog" Walla Walla Valley Syrah,Wine Enthusiast writes: "Initially a rather subdued Frog; as if it has been tamed down. Then, suddenly, There’s a plush core of blackberry fruit, and the classic Cayuse funkiness is there, drenched in liquid rocks and cured meat and drying tannins. It’s all in proportion and a fine reflection of the steely vintage. As it opens gracefully you discover that it is a stunningly refined Frog, quite possibly the best ever; powerful and distinctive, but also elegant, feminine. (PG)" (11/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 Lucien Le Moine Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses".

Bid on this magnum of 1998 Antinori Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore (1.5L). Very limited Super Tuscan from Piero Antinori, a Cabernet blend that comes from his vineyard across the street from Ornellaia and down the block from Sassicaia on the Tuscan coast.
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95VN, 93CG, 93WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. It was aged 20 months in oak, 92% French and 8% Russian. Deep garnet colored, exuberant scents come bounding from the glass with gregarious baked blackberries, warm cassis and Black Forest cake notes over loads of unsmoked cigars, camphor, Chinese five spice and dried sage nuances plus a waft of woodsmoke. Wonderfully full-bodied, rich and concentrated (with an alcohol of 15.5%), it is jam-packed with baked blue and black fruit preserves flavors plus tons of exotic spice sparks, framed with a solid foundation of firm, grainy tannins and a lovely line of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB)" (05/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru "La Cabotte" (96BH, (94-96RP), 95ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at two separate tastings. The nose is similar to the Chevalier-Montrachet at first, but then with aeration one notices differences, a touch of frangipane and dried apricot, a little rounder perhaps. The palate is full-bodied, quite dense, great weight and poise, really penetrating fruit. It is actually after the wine has been ejected that one experiences and wave of powerful peachy, coconut and leesy fruit crashing over the palate, lingering seductively. Wonderful-perhaps even better than the -Monty-? Drink 2013-2030. Tasted January 2010. (NM)" (03/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97JD, 97RP, 93VN, 92CG, 91W&S, 90JS, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve sings of fragrant cassis, blackberry pie and plum preserves notes with sparks of kirsch, violets, chocolate box and allspice plus earthy wafts of truffles and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, the fruity flavors are just starting to evolve into tertiary earth and spice layers with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and lively freshness, finishing with epic length. (LPB)" (08/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 1997 Fontodi "Flaccianello della Pieve" Toscana (1.5L) (95RP, 95VN, 94ST, 94WS). Vinous: "The 1997 Flaccianello della Pieve wraps around the palate with endless layers of dark fruit. In 1997 the grapes were very small because the intense heat of the year dehydrated the fruit. Dark red berries, pomegranate, spices, smoke, licorice, anise and rose petals burst from the glass with notable energy, power and grace. Even with all of its intensity, the 1997 is beautifully balanced from start to finish. This racy, full-bodied Flaccianello can be enjoyed today or cellared for up to a decade. " (06/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Dominique Laurent Gevrey-Chambertin "Clos St. Jacques" Vieilles Vignes ((96-98RP), (92-94ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are five barrels of Laurent’s 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques Vieilles Vignes, from an appellation and source with which he has enjoyed a special relationship since the inception of his company. One cannot imagine a much better rendition of this grand cru quality site than the present wine. Redolent of black raspberries, soy, smoked meat, violet, and rose petal, it is incredibly palate-staining, with a seamless meld of chocolate-covered black fruits, smoked meat, toasted nuts and stony minerality, as well as an alluring persistence of inner-mouth spice and flowers. Creamy and fat in texture, this Pinot practically oozes out over the palate, yet retains verve and shape, the structural enhancement from whole cluster fermentation being deeply buried while the added nuance and fruit which Laurent claims are also benefits of

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98RP, 94WE, 93ST, 93W&S, 92DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A brilliant showing for Christian Moueix’s well-known Napanook Vineyard, the 2001 Dominus is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. A classic in the making, this is a flawless, seamless example of elegant, complex Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that possesses a Bordeaux-like personality. This gorgeous, sexy, opulent, dense ruby/purple-colored wine reveals sweet caramel, mocha, creme de cassis and kirsch notes intermixed with a hint of espresso roast as well as underbrush. Ripe, long and full-bodied with well-integrated tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood, this prodigious 2001 is drinkable now and over the next 25+ years given this estate’s longevity track record. A virtually perfect wine, it is one of the most complex 2001s at present. (RP)" (06/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Orin Swift Cellars "The Prisoner" Napa Valley Red Blend (92WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: "Focused, rich and ripe, showing aromas of black cherry and smoky pepper, with sleek but complex flavors of boysenberry, licorice and toasty oak that linger with balanced tannins.

Starting Bid: $80.00

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV 40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97VN, 95RP, 94W&S). Vinous: "Graphite, lavender, mint, licorice and plums literally jump out of the glass in the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. Vibrant and powerful in the glass, the 2013 is endowed with striking nuance for a wine of its size. The wine's explosive energy is compelling, but it will be a number of years before the 2013 is ready to drink. It is pretty magical at this early stage just the same. (AG)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Midsummer Cellars "Cañon Creek" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90WE). Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* Smooth and tangy in dark plum and cassis, this vineyard-designate leans toward the savory side of the variety, yeasty and tasting of tobacco and tar. It finishes with a swirl of mocha. " (12/2015)
Starting Bid: $90.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "Le Serre Nuove" Bolgheri (92RP, 91JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia is a gorgeous, fleshy wine that shows the radiant personality of the vintage. Mocha, espresso, raspberry jam and spices are some of the aromas and flavors that flow from this pliant, accessible red. This is all silk and polish. Stylistically, the 2009 is close to the 2007 for its early approachability but appears to have less overall stuffing. It is a gorgeous, rewarding wine to drink now and over the next 8-10 years. Vintage 2009 was a strange year. A dry hot summer led to an early harvest for Merlot, which is typically precocious, but rain in mid-September slowed down the maturation cycle for later-ripening grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2009 the blend is 54% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 2009 Serre Nuove spent about 15 months in French oak barrels, 25% new. (AG)" (08/

Of the 2003 Tenuta Sette Ponti "Oreno" Toscana,Wine Spectator writes: " Breathtaking. Dense and powerful, with grilled meat and currant aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, round and chewy; a massive and exciting wine. More muscular than the 2001. *Highly Recommended, Ranked #5 of Top 100 Wines of 2005* (JS)" (10/2005)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Fairchild "G-III" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 94RP, 92JD) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not to be missed is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon G-III, which comes from the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III. This shows notes of roasted coffee, blackcurrant fruit, is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, toasty oak and a velvety finish. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97WE, 95JD, 93JS, 93RP, 92VN). Wine Enthusiast: "With a tiny 3% addition of Cabernet Franc, this wine is defined by aromas of violet and crushed rock. Oak, clove and graphite dot a landscape of bold structure on the palate, with bright acidity balancing the concentration and grip. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (11/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Shafer "TD-9" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95WE, 94RP, (91-94VN), 93JD). Wine Enthusiast: "The winery’s proprietary blend of 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Malbec is hugely impressive and memorable, with a smoky, toasted oak character. Plush flavors of blackberry and cherry jam meld with spice on the rich, round midpalate. It offers plenty of grip and concentration, finishing on a handful of dried herb. (VB)" (05/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (98JD, 98RP, 97WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The late-released 2007 Heart Stone, which spent 28 months in a combination of barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons, turned out to be a final blend of 65% Syrah, 21% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre. Like all of Justin Smith’s 2007s, it is a riveting, sensational wine that carries its heavy weight, profound richness, and intensity very gracefully. That is no doubt an effect of the limestone soils of this region. Blackberry and smoked meats as well as some garrigue and floral notes are followed by a dense, rich, pure, multi-layered wine that just screams for grilled poultry or meats! Bottled unfined and unfiltered...this is a fabulous wine that combines power and elegance. It should drink well for at least a decade or more. (RP)" (08/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Peter Michael "Ma Belle-Fille" Knights Valley Chardonnay (98RP, 96JS, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille has essentially the same aromatic and flavor profile as well as huge body and concentration that also characterized the 2015, with oodles of caramelized citrus and honeysuckle in its explosive aromatics and intense flavors. Both are fabulous Chardonnays like their siblings and should be drunk over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Scarecrow "M. Étain" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon M. Etain is in essence a second wine, but it sure doesn’t taste like one. Its deep purple color is followed by pure black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, dusty, loamy soil notes, extraordinary depth of fruit, ripeness and good acidity. This opulent, round beauty is ideal for drinking over the next decade or more. 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. Drink through 2024. (RP)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $380.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Ultramarine "Heintz Vineyard" Blanc de Noir Sonoma Coast Sparkling Wine (92VN). Vinous: "The 2014 Blanc de Noirs Charles Heintz Vineyard is quite open and racy, with soft, gentle curves and terrific depth. Hazelnut, dried flowers, mint and red berry fruit all develop in the glass. There is plenty of Pinot character. The decision to bottle with no dosage yields a wine that flirts between being focused and coming across a touch lean. It will be interesting to see how this delicate balance develops over time.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011-2012 Rhys "Home Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2011 Rhys "Home Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir (96VN, 94RP, 93JG, 93ST, 92BH) and 1-bottle of 2012 Rhys "Home Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir (94VN, 93RP, 93ST, 92BH, 92JG). Of the 2011 Rhys "Home Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir,Vinous writes: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Home Vineyard bursts from glass with racy red berries, flowers, smoke, licorice, incense and orange peel. Exotic, beguiling and beautifully layered, the 2011 boasts stunning depth, yet weightless elegance and tons of pure personality. The racy, explosive finish is a marvel to behold. An utterly dazzling Pinot, the 2011 should drink well for years. It is one of the few California Pinots I would bet on to age gracefully for more than a decade. This dazzling Pinot Noir has pedigree and structure to burn. In a word: superb! Home was the first parcel to ripen in 2011, and as such, the team felt

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Vineyard 29 "CRU" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS, 91RP). Wine Spectator: "Tight and well done, featuring complex dried currant, dried herb, cedar and tobacco notes. Most impressive for its elegance and balance. Moreover, 5,844 cases of wine this good at $54 a bottle is a notable accomplishment. Worth buying a handful or more. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (10/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Fleury Estate Winery "Lauren Bryce" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Brian Fleury fell in love with wine collecting and then wine making.

Bid on this magnum of 2012 Cayuse "Wallah Wallah Special #4" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (1.5L) (OWC - 96RP, 95VN, 94WE, 93WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made by Christophe as a tribute to Côte Rôtie and coming from a blend of estate vineyards, the 2012 Syrah Wallah Wallah #4 Special spent 22 months in older puncheons and neutral smaller barrels before being bottled only in Magnum, of which there’s only 2,500 to go around. Hitting 13.6% natural alcohol, its deep ruby, semi-opaque color is followed by fabulous notes of rose petals, incense, violets, leather and sweet raspberry. These flow seamlessly to a full-bodied, supple and elegant Syrah that has no hard edges, integrated acidity and thrilling purity of fruit. Showing more and more tannin with time in the glass, it needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and will have an easy two decades or more of longevity. (JD) 96+" (06/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Frédéric Magnien Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Brulees" ((90-93BH), (90-93ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Moderate wood spice frames ripe and classy dark berry fruit that also reflect an impressive range of Vosne spice notes, tea and a pungent nuance of warm earth on the mocha-infused, textured and refined medium full flavors that evidence a muscular character that borders on the robust. This is complex and dramatic if not especially nuanced yet the intensity and length alone are worth the price of admission." (01/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (92WS, 91RP, 91ST). Wine Spectator: "A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. (JS)" (03/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien (92W&S, 91RP, 91WS). Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (04/2002)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 Gaja Ca' Marcanda "Camarcanda" Bolgheri (96RP, 94JD, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The vineyard that produces the fruit used in the 2015 Bolgheri Rosso Camarcanda has more limestone than elsewhere in the area and has very white soils as a result. (The soils are treated with compost to darken them and to keep them balanced.) This wine is tight and compact, showing good backbone, complexity and intensity as a result of the terre bianche, or those white soils. The 2015 vintage is particularly fruity, sweet and succulent, with a delineated minerality in the mouth. The wine spends 18 months in oak. (ML)" (05/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Georges Laval "Les Chenes" Brut Nature Premier Cru Champagne (96VN). Vinous: "The 2014 Brut Nature Les Chênes (Chardonnay) is fabulous. A Champagne of extraordinary precision, the 2014 dazzles from the very first taste. Chalk, white flowers, mint, slate and lemon peel race out of the glass. There is just something about the translucent beauty and vibrancy of the Chênes that is supremely appealing. The 2014 is simply magnificent. Don’t miss it! (AG)" (07/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Arnaud Ente Bourgogne Aligote (90JG). John Gilman: "The 2015 Bourgogne Aligoté from Monsieur Ente is a very pretty and pure bottle, wafting from the glass in a vibrant aromatic constellation of apple, tangerine, lovely minerality and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is elegant, focused and full-bodied, with a very good core, lovely energy and bounce on the backend and a long, classy and zesty finish. This has excellent acidity. " (11/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Pierre Boisson Meursault . According to the importer, Pierre Boisson's wines have developed a "cult-like following" in New York, but are well known in France because of the family's history of winemaking and deep roots in Meursault. "The wines of Domaine Boisson-Vadot have always been excellent, with a classic, soil-driven and racy style not encumbered by excessive new oak or battonage. Like so many of the top domaines in Burgundy, there are no secrets to the success of the Boisson-Vadot wines. Rather, the tried and true formula of a high percentage of old vines, careful vineyard husbandry each year to nurture the greatest potential of each vintage, and patient, careful winemaking in the cellars allows the unique, underlying terroirs of each vineyard to take the spotlight in the finished wines."

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Myriad "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard - Elysian" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 97JD, 93VN, 92JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard Elysian gives up intense earthy notes of crushed rocks, iron ore, black truffles and fertile loam to begin, giving way to a stunning array of black fruits and floral scents—crushed black cherries, warm black berries, cassis, red roses and candied violets—with wafts of cigar box and pencil lead in the background. Full-bodied, rich and fantastically flamboyant in the mouth, the decadent fruit slowly grows on the palate to reveal layer upon layer of mineral, earthy and seductively spiced black fruits, finishing very long and wonderfully perfumed. This is Dr. Crane at its finest. (LPB)" (10/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard La Verdad has a very deep purple-black color and reveals slightly subdued, youthful notes of crushed blueberries, warm black cherries and mulberries with hints of blackcurrant cordial, stewed black tea, wilted roses and fragrant soil. Wow—the palate explodes with very primary yet incredibly exciting, densely packed muscular black fruits, framed with a brick house of super ripe tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and incredibly cerebral. Yes, yes, yes! (LPB)" (10/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2011 Clos Rougeard "Brezé" Saumur Blanc (90VN). Vinous: "Pale golden yellow. Sumptuous bouquet of quince, pear and white flowers, with a subtle touch of exotic passion fruit. Juicy, expansive orchard fruit flavors are given depth by a peach pit quality, picking up sweetness and a hint of spice on the back of the palate.

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 2005 Havens "Bourriquot" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend ((91-93ST), 92RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red. Slightly funky, claret-like aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice, chocolate and game. Sweet, rich and shapely, with nicely buffered acidity and good inner-mouth energy. Round and plump in the middle, then suave and long on the finish, with late-arriving dusty tannins and firm acids leavening the wine's sweetness. Very promising. (ST)" (05/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine des Lambrays Grand Cru "Clos des Lambrays" (98WE, 95WS, 94BH, 94JG, 93RP, 93VN). Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful, pure wine that combines freshness and intense richness. It seems to float while still giving a huge mouthful of plums, coffee and sweet, juicy tannins. A straight line of pure flavor all the way to the finish. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (08/2008)

Bid on this bottle of 1994 Fonseca Vintage Port (100WS, 98DC, 97RP). Wine Spectator: "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. *No. 1 Top 100 Wines of 1997, Cellar Selection* (JS)" (04/1997)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Arnaud Ente Bourgogne Blanc (90JG). John Gilman: "Arnaud Ente’s 2015 Bourgogne Blanc is also very stylish, with an overtly Puligny-like personality this year (two-thirds of these grapes hail from Bourgogne-ranked parcels in Puligny-Montrachet, the other third from parcels in near the Clos des Ormes vineyard in Meursault), offering up a lovely bouquet of apple, white peach, chalky soil tones, white flowers and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely round on the attack, with vibrant acids, lovely focus and grip, a good core and a long, suave finish. This is wide open in personality right out of the blocks, but has fine supporting acidity and will not need to be consumed in the flash of an eye. " (11/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Domaine Edmond Vatan "Clos la Neore" Sancerre. According to the importer: "With Edmond Vatan, born in 1929, I find it a mistake to "judge" vintages. Literally no matter what the conditions of the year, whatever he creates is remarkable, with amazing consistency from vintage to vintage. … Vinification in old tank; one racking, and then bottling with no fining or filtration when the conditions are perfect in nature. The 2007 was the last vintage that Edmond produced on his own. Starting with 2008, his daughter Anne took over, with Edmond remaining involved, advising and guiding. Anne is making wine that continues in every way the greatness of this tiny gem of Chavignol."

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend (96JD, 93WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Proprietary Red is a beauty based on 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Carménère, all of which spent 20 months in just over 70% new French oak. This inky purple colored 2016 offers a perfumed, complex bouquet of sweet crème de cassis, Asian spices, lead pencil, and cedarwood. Full-bodied and plenty powerful, it shines even more for its flawless balance, polished tannins, and great finish. This is a quintessential, rich, elegant Napa Bordeaux blend to enjoy over the coming two decades or more." (11/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Arnaud Ente Bourgogne Rouge. Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is ample floral influence on the fresh and cool essence of red pinot fruit and earth-scented nose. The attractively textured, intense and rich medium weight flavors possess outstanding volume, depth and length on the balanced finish. This is unusually good for its level. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (04/2017)
