Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, 95JD, 95WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Vieux Telegraphe may be the greatest wine made at this property since the 2005 and 1998. Dense ruby/purple-tinged with an exquisite nose of salty sea breezes, licorice, ground pepper, jammy black cherries, black currants, figs, and plums, this is a full-bodied, rich, Provencal-styled offering with lots of sweet, ripe tannin. It is surprisingly accessible for a Vieux Telegraphe (this wine normally shuts down several years after bottling), but it should have great longevity (25+ years) given its power, full-bodied mouthfeel, and enormous length and richness. This is a brilliant effort from brothers Frederic and Daniel Brunier. (RP) 96+" (10/2009)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 96RP, 95WS, 94ST, 92JS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Sourced from all of Justin’s Vineyards (mostly James Berry Vineyard) and showing every bit as impressive from bottle as from barrel, the knockout 2009 Saxum Broken Stones is a blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Grenache that spent close to 19 months in barrel. Exotic and masculine at first, with copious amounts of black fruits, wild herbs, mineral, and gorgeous floral characteristics literally soaring from the glass, it fleshes out in the glass and shows more finesse and elegance than you would think possible from such a rich, concentrated wine. Nevertheless, it’s full-bodied and powerful on the palate, with fantastic freshness and purity, as well as a boatload of finely polished tannin. It needs to be forgotten for 3-5 years, possibly longer, and will shine for upwards of two decades or more. " (06/2012)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (98RP, 97JD, 97JS, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Simply put, the 2009 James Berry Vineyard is one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted from California, or anywhere for that matter. Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish. Frankly, I am surprised this is the first wine of the tasting. Where does one go from here? (AG)" (08/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95DC, 91RP, 90ST). Decanter: "Slightly deeper in hue than La Nerthe, but the same depth of colour as Pégau. This wine has, remarkably enough, retained wild flower and lavender notes with a falling honeyed sweetness, too. On the palate, it has better volume and force than La Nerthe, with lower acidity and richer tannins. This is a very complete wine at present, with notes of thyme and meaty umami framing the refined, stony fruits. (AJ)" (05/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97JD, 96RP, 96VN, 94ST, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Sporting a vibrant ruby, semi-opaque color, the 2010 Saxum James Berry Vineyard is the most tight, backwards version of this cuvee that I can recall. A blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Mourvedre, and 22% Syrah, it has a decidedly savory bouquet of blackberry liqueur, kirsch, violets, bouquet garni, ground pepper, and graphite. Full-bodied and layered on the palate, with brilliant mid-palate concentration, superb freshness, and masses of tannin, this brilliant Rhône blend from Paso Robles will stand toe to toe with the best wines out there, but it is not for those seeking instant gratification and will require 4-5 years of bottle age. In 2010, the Grenache component was aged in a combination of concrete tank and oak puncheons, and this change shows in both the aromatics and texture, with less obvious sweetness and more freshness. It will evolve gracefully for two

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Château de Beaucastel "Hommage à Jacques Perrin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97JD, (94-96RP), (93-95VN)). Jeb Dunnuck: "More forward and approachable than the 2013, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin is nevertheless a massive wine that has more depth and concentration than just about every other wine in the vintage. A classic blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, and the rest Counoise and Syrah that was brought up in foudre, this full-bodied, forward, sexy effort has thrilling notes of black and blue fruits, beef blood, licorice, ground pepper, and bouquet garni. While a relatively accessible, charming vintage (by this cuvees standards anyway), it still needs 4-5 years of bottle age and is going to evolve beautifully on its balance, complexity, and length. It’s an awesome 2014."
Starting Bid: $750.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape (95JD, 95RP, 94VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the few estates where the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape actually eclipses the 2016, this is a top-flight effort. Black cherries and red raspberries combine with dried spices in a complex swirl of fruity and savory elements, garnished with sprigs of garrigue. Full-bodied, round and rich, this velvety wine should drink well through at least 2035. (JC)" (08/2019)
Starting Bid: $91.12

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2006 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (93RP, 93WS, 92ST, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 38% Syrah, 36% Grenache, and 26% Mourvedre, the 2006 Heart Stone Vineyard offers up scents of flowers, lavender, black cherries, raspberries, blackberries, underbrush, and forest floor. Justin Smith uses a lot of whole clusters in his fermentation, which seems to give his wines structure as well as nuance. This is the most French-like of Saxum’s 2006s, and it comes across like a restrained, northern Rhone-like effort that is only hinting at its ultimate potential. (RP)" (08/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) Multi-Format Tasting Lot (OWC), including 2-bottles of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend (99RP, 99VN, 98JD), 1-bottle of 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend (1.5L) (99RP, 99VN, 98JD), and 1-bottle of 2015 Next Of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Número Um" Central Coast Touriga Nacional ((95-97VN), 96JD, 95RP). Of the 2015 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 9'' Central Coast Red Blend,Vinous writes: "The 2015 No. 9 Cumulus Vineyard is off the charts gorgeous, just as it was from barrel last year. Tasted from bottle, the 2009 is a bit closed, but all the aromatic depth, soaring intensity and energy that it showed from barrel is there. Time in the glass brings out the wine’s sensational pedigree. Dark cherry jam, mocha, grilled herbs and leather are some of the many notes that develop with time, but it is the wine’s overall structure

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1998 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96WE, 95WS, 93RP, 93ST). Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine … " (12/2001)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of Xavier Vins "La Reserve VII IX X" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new non-vintage wine that’s made from a blend of the top barrels of the Cuvee Anonyme from 2007 (43%), 2009 (21%) and 2010 (36%), the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reserve VII IX X is an hedonistic and decadent release that dishes out massive amounts of black raspberry, raspberry, spice cake, licorice and crushed flower like nuances on the nose. Gorgeously full-bodied and textured on the palate, yet with remarkable freshness and purity, this layered, incredible wine should last for 15+ years. (JD)" (10/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 97WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the great vintages from this estate, surpassing even the 1990, 2000, 2001, 2003, and maybe the 2010 (time will tell with this one), the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape from Vincent Avril delivers everything you could want from a wine. Full-bodied, intense and beautifully concentrated, with plenty of muscle and depth, it shows the hallmark elegance and purity of the estate, with sensational notes of kirsch liqueur, raspberries, incense, smoked meats and Asian spices. The blend is the normal 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, brought up all in older foudre, and it's just now entering its prime drink window and has another two decades of longevity. (JD)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (93ST, 91RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of cherry, truffle, cotton candy and smoked meat. Silky-sweet and seductive on entry, then sappy and spicy in the middle, with terrific acidity framing and lifting the blueberry and violet flavors. Wonderfully sweet wine, finishing with smooth tannins and lovely perfume. A superb example of the captivating blends being made in Paso Robles from Rhone Valley grapes. (ST)" (10/2006)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Les Cailloux (Andre Brunel) "Cuvée Centenaire" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (100RP, 98JD, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the greatest vintages for Andre Brunel, aside from his extraordinary succession of vintages from 1998-2001 is 1990. The perfect Cuvee Centenaire is still dense ruby/purple-colored with a sumptuous nose of white flowers, raspberry and cherry liqueur, smoke, and mineral scents. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by an unctuously-textured, pure wine that combines the best of Chateauneuf du Pape with the floral, earthy complexity of a great grand cru red Burgundy. This is a riveting tour de force in winemaking. Don’t miss it. Anticipated maturity: now-2020. (RP)" (01/2003)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 L'Aventure "Côte a Côte Estate" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96RP, 93ST, 91VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 40% Syrah, 38% Mourvedre and 22% Grenache aged in half new and half one-year-old barrels, the 2011 Cote a Cote is stunning. Full-bodied and decadent, yet oh so light on its feet and even elegant, it offers classic Paso fruit, smoked meat, chocolate and licorice as well as a seamless feel, sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish. It will have 10-12 years of ultimate longevity. Drink now-2023. (JD)" (08/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Torrin "The Banshee" Paso Robles Rhône Blend ((93-96JD), 96RP, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre, the 2010 Banshee is showing every bit as spectacular from bottle as it did from barrel. Deeply fruited, with notions of blackberry, mineral, licorice and hints of flowers, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, seamless and elegant profile that builds in richness and depth with air. Loaded with fruit, yet also savory, complex and nuanced, with superb overall concentration, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and should see its 20th birthday in fine form. Drink 2015-2030.

Bid on this bottle of 1988 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe "La Crau" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (93JD, 93JG). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 1988 Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape (from magnum) was gorgeous and shows the ageability of the wines of this estate and its incredible terroir. Light ruby colored and youthful, with soaring and complex notes of ripe berry fruits, white pepper, flowers and Provençal herbs, it was weightless on the palate and still had a terrific core of sweet fruit. It’s certainly fully mature, but had plenty of life. I’ve had dead bottles of this in the States, so as always with older bottles, provenance is king." (02/2018)

This spicy, rich, full-bodied effort should drink beautifully for a decade. (RP)" (08/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1998 Le Clos du Caillou "La Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the top wines in the vintage today, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve le Clos du Caillou tastes more like a mature Bordeaux than a Chateauneuf du Pape. Giving up lots of graphite, smoked meats, olive, tobacco and dark fruits, this beauty is full-bodied, concentrated and textured, with building tannin, yet possesses the hallmark elegance and purity of the estate. The first vintage from this cuvee and coming from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre, it will continue to drink beautifully through 2023+." (08/2015)
Starting Bid: $190.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (96RP, (92-95JD), 95WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the stars of the vintage and coming from absurdly low yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare, the 2011 Châteauneuf du Pape is a full-bodied, seamless effort that exhibits copious kirsch, ground pepper, dried flowers and underbrush as well as incredibly fine tannin, great mid-palate concentration and ample length on the finish. Relatively forward by this estate’s standards, it will be approachable at an earlier age than normal. Nevertheless, it will have 20+ years of evolution and is an awesome effort in the vintage. Drink 2015-2030. (JD)" (10/2013)

Bid on this magnum of 2000 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée da Capo" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1.5) (100RP, 98JD, 97WS, (94-95ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee da Capo is a monument to old vine Grenache as well as traditionally made Chateauneuf du Pape. Boasting a natural alcohol of 16%, this wine, which was bottled in spring, 2003 because its fermentation was extremely slow, has virtually everything you could ever want in a profound Chateauneuf du Pape. The color is inky/ruby/purple to the rim. The extraordinary nose reveals aromas of kirsch liqueur, new saddle leather, animal fur, Provencal herbs, spice box, licorice, and a salty sea breeze character. On the palate, the wine is enormous, with an unctuosity, thickness, and purity that must be tasted to be believed. Over 95% of this offering is old vine Grenache, and the rest a field blend of ancient vines. Representing the essence of Chateauneuf du Pape, it possesses so much concentration that it is easy to po

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 96JD, 95WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting off the more southern Rhone-inspired blends, the 2005 James Berry Vineyard is a brilliant effort that’s drinking perfectly. Made from 70% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache, it gives up incredible aromas of sweet blackcurrants, blackberry liqueur, spiced meats, licorice and roasted meats that are just now starting to show hints of evolution. Sweetly fruited and with full-bodied richness, this beauty is hard to resist and has fabulous concentration, sweet tannin and a seamless finish. (JD)" (06/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (92RP, 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-hued 2004 Heart Stone Vineyard (a 200-case blend of 60% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache) boasts a stunning perfume of flowers, blueberries, and briery, wild berry fruit. The distinctive aromatics are followed by a wine with soft tannins, medium to full body, and well-integrated acidity, tannin, and wood. (RP)" (08/2006)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (98JD, 98RP, 97WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 James Berry Vineyard (52% Grenache, 31% Mourvèdre, and 17% Syrah) saw some of its Grenache aged in the concrete eggs that are now catching on among some of the top producers on California’s Central Coast. With strong minerality from the limestone soil, this exuberant, fleshy, full-bodied wine is already drinking well. (I believe it was actually bottled just a day or two before my visit, which makes its performance that much more remarkable.) Dense purple, with sweet notes of barbecue smoke and meats as well as roasted herbs, extravagant black cherry, black currant, and blackberry fruit are all present in this wine, but there is plenty of underlying structure that comes from both the minerality and the Mourvedre component. Pure, full-bodied, but again, impressively elegant and nuanced, this is a tour de force and another prodigious exam

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99JS, 97RP, 97WS, 96DC, 96JD, (93-95VN)). James Suckling: "This is a stunning Beaucastel. A classic! Has a superb array of fruit, ranging from red, through to blue, darker purple and black. Nuances of dark, stony minerals, spices, wild flowers and herbs. So fleshy. This has impeccable balance, super-silky tannins and an extraordinarily long finish. This has decades ahead of it. Drink or hold. " (07/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (96JD, 94RP, 93ST, 93WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Saxum Broken Stones is a full bore Syrah, delivering earthy dark berry fruits, roasted meats, charcoal, and spice box aromas that are lifted and framed by serious underlying minerality and crushed stone notes. Full bodied and powerful on the palate, with a ripe, grippy texture, gorgeous balance – despite the overall large scale – and a beautifully focused, blockbuster finish, this superb Syrah should benefit from 2 to 3 years of bottle age, and then drink well for 10 to 15."

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Booker "My Favorite Neighbor" Paso Robles Red Blend ((97-99RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hold onto your hats with this one, the 2014 My Favorite Neighbor Proprietary Blend will see 24 months in barrel, and there will only be a single cuvee in 2014. This insanely good barrel sample gives up serious, inky, yet pure notes of violets, licorice, black raspberries, creme de cassis and graphite to go with building tannin, a stacked mid-palate and blockbuster length. I'd like to have a case of it in the cellar. (JD)" (08/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (96JD, 96WS, 94DC, 94VN). Wine Spectator: "Tightly coiled for now, this features an intense, vivid core of anise, blackberry coulis, plum paste and macerated fig fruit, with black tea, smoldering tobacco and warm ganache notes. Long and dense, but very silky, with gorgeous violet and pastis details lingering in the background. Should unwind with time. (JM)" (09/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (94RP, 92VN, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2005 Heart Stone Vineyard, this blend of 44% Syrah, 33% Grenache and 23% Mourvedre offers up impressive aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness and fabulous purity of fruit. Creme de cassis, black cherries, licorice, smoked earth and wild herbs like qualities all emerge from the glass, and this nicely structured effort stays pure and focused on the palate, with excellent overall freshness and energy.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1,580 cases of the 2012 James Berry Vineyard and it reminds me of the 2009 Janasse Chaupin (which is one of Justin’s favorite wines). Incorporating more Mourvedre than normal, it’s made from 43% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah and 10% Counoise that’s aged in a combination of concrete and barrel. Rock star stuff, with fabulous black raspberry, cassis, spring flowers and charred meat aromas and flavors, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays lively, incredibly pure and elegant, with lots of fine tannin emerging on the finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years in the cellar and have 15-20 years of ultimate longevity. (JD) 97+" (08/2014)

Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. A classic blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah brought up all in old foudre, this beauty's deep purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black currants, blueberries, Asian spices, and garrigue. Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it nevertheless is as graceful as a ballerina on the palate and has ultra-fine tannins, a silky, seamless texture, and a finish that just won't quit.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine I’ve had more than a case of, sometimes with irregular results, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes was drinking about as good as it gets on this occasion. As usual, it’s made in a deeper, richer style than the Chaupin and offers thrilling texture, a smoking mid-palate and nothing but gorgeous Grenache fruit on the finish. Loaded with notions of blackberry liqueur, kirsch, fruit cake and spice, enjoy this knockout effort over the coming 2-4 years or so. (JD)" (08/2014)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The thickest, richest and most extravagant Cuvee du Mon Aieul ever produced is unquestionably the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul! Almost all old-vine Grenache brought up in tank (no new wood), it tastes like the raw essence of Grenache and has off-the-hook aromas and flavors of black raspberries, cassis, cured meats, licorice and incense. Massively rich and textured, with a full, layered mid-palate and sweet tannin, it's still an adolescent that drinks well today, due its insane amount of fruit, but will be even better in 2-3 years and have 20-25 years of overall longevity.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (99RP, 98JD, 94VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ve drunk over a case of the 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvée Chaupin from my cellar, and this was easily one of the finest bottles (it was from magnum) I’ve ever had. Made from close to 100% Grenache and brought up in foudre, it’s a crazy good, monumental beauty that offers loads of ripe blackberries, black raspberries, crushed flowers and garrigue aromas and flavors. Concentrated, layered and unctuous, with a to-die-for texture, no hard edges and a huge finish, this beauty is still youthful and is just now starting to show hints of maturity. When it’s this good, I can’t recommend waiting, but I’ve no doubt this will continue to offer this level of quality for at least another decade. (JD)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Philippe Gayral et Stephane Gallet "Le Passage" Maury (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Hints of lemongrass leave the front of the mouth tingling while it glides towards a very harmonious, almost understated, raisin-tinged finish that belies that power. It will age beautifully over the next decade – but it does deserve a cellar. Tasted December 2012. (NM)" (04/2013)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red is made from 45% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, 18% Syrah and 8% Counoise (which Justin commented was a blend that was put together relatively late). It saw a big chunk of whole cluster (the Grenache was mostly destemmed though) and was brought up all in puncheons and foudre (the normal concrete component went to the Rocket Block). It offers up gorgeous notes of black raspberries, cherries, cassis, ground herbs and flowers. This beauty hits the palate with incredible purity, fine tannin and an overriding sense of elegance and finesse, backed up by full-bodied richness and depth. It needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years and it will drink beautifully through 2028. (JD)" (08/2016)
