Bid on this bottle of 1969 Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 100VN). Vinous: "The 1969 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon is poured and all conversation stops. I can smell the intoxicating bouquet right out of the bottle, but it is the wine’s color and overall intensity that are beyond belief. Graphite, lavender, smoke, herbs and host of intense dark fruits saturate the palate as this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon shows why it is regarded as one the greatest wines ever made in Napa Valley. At times, the textural richness and viscosity are reminiscent of legendary Médocs such as Latour, while the intense savory/smoky notes recall great vintages of La Mission Haut-Brion, but the essence is pure Napa Valley. I have had the 1969 a number of times and it has always been nothing short of remarkable, as it is once again on this night. I am too young to have tasted the 1969 when it was a young wine, but it must have really been something.

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (100JS, 99WE, 98RP, 98VN, 98WS, 96ST, 95W&S). James Suckling: "The nose is fresh, bright, and dense. With aromas of violets, minerals, spices, cool stones, mint, dark fruits, and plum skins, this is beautiful. Very much still a baby right now, it needs much more time. This is a wine for the next generation. Finesse and elegance, truly a wine that makes you contemplate life. This is not about power, there is really nothing like it. " (02/2011)

Bid on this magnum of 2007 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L). Wine Spectator: "Benefits from the riper year, with more generous plum and wild berry fruit woven in with the tobacco, herb and sage. Ends with firm, chewy tannins, but also more fruit than the prior two vintages. (JL)" (10/2012)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, (93-95ST), 95WS, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the red soils near Dalla Valle in the eastern part of the Oakville Corridor, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium is a killer wine. It possesses a striking, intense, rocky minerality, an opaque purple color, and deep, beautiful aromas of camphor, spring flowers, blueberries and black raspberry fruit. There is a cool climate character (even though this is not a cool climate viticultural area) as well as superb richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, great delineation and a mindboggling finish that lasts nearly a full minute. This outrageous Cabernet Sauvignon can be drunk now and over the next 25 years. (RP)" (10/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JG, 90RP, 90WS). John Gilman: "The 1990 vintage of Martha’s Vineyard is less ripe and powerful than the 1991 and is one of Kathleen Heitz Myers’ favorite vintages from the decade of the 1990s. One taste and it is very easy to understand why this is the case, as this is a beautifully elegant rendition of Martha’s Vineyard. The bouquet is deep, complex and stunning, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of red and black cherries, new leather, eucalyptus, cigar smoke, Rutherford dust and just a hint of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very refined, with fine mid-palate depth, beautiful complexity, moderate tannins and superb length and grip on the dancing finish. While the 1990 Martha’s Vineyard is already drinking beautifully, I would be inclined to give it just a few more years of cellaring, to allow it to reach its zenith. It will drink well for many decades o

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (98DC, 97JS, 95JG, 93WS). Decanter: "Beautiful, rich and still extremely young, this is Lafite at its gulpable, elegant, sculpted, age-defying best. Deeply-spiced cassis notes are joined by touches of cedar - the result of a dry year that saw one of the earliest harvests since 1898. The grapes were picked with high alcohol and ripe tannins and they have absolutely lasted, and will continue to do so. The tannins are cradling the fruit, barely perceptible and yet still fully in control. (JA)" (05/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Outpost "True Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 99JD, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the nine-acre True Vineyard up on Howell Mountain and produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard strides confidently out of the glass with incredible poise and pedigree: warm cassis, blackcurrant cordial, baker’s chocolate, licorice and truffles commingled with hints of underbrush, violets, woodsmoke and stewed plums plus a waft of fragrant earth. Full-bodied, concentrated and built like a brick house, it has wonderfully firm, ripe, grainy tannins with a fantastic line of seamless freshness and a powerful, multilayered expression of place coming through on the epically long finish. A decadent beauty right now, this is going to be even more mind-blowing in 15 to 20+ years, and it should go on for 40 or more. (LPB)" (07/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 98DC, 97JS, 97VN, 96ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted three times since bottling, the 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate's greatest wine. As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot). This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. It will require many years to come around, so I suspect all of us past the age of fifty might want to give serious consideration as to whether we should be laying away multiple cases of this wine. It is also the first Lafite-Rothschild to be put into a new engraved bottle (designed to prevent fraudulent imitations). The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knock-out nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant sce

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Montrose, St-Estèphe (97VN, 96DC, 96JS, 95JD, 95WS, 94RP, 93ST, 93W&S). Vinous: "The 2005 Montrose replicated previous showings of that formidable wine. The bouquet is backward and here exuding more black fruit than previous bottles, rendering it more akin to the 2010 Montrose. With aeration those telltale scents of pencil lead emerge, although this bottle shows a touch more brine. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, a Montrose with huge backbone, solid to the point of being obdurate. Yet that would be overlooking the poise and delineation of this Montrose, the manner in which it gathers momentum towards the grippy finish. It is a truly great 2005 Bordeaux but it deserves a couple of decades in bottle. Tasted blind at "Philip's Belated February Christmas Lunch." (NM)" (07/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 O'Shaughnessy Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark red cherries, iron, crushed rocks, flowers and mint are all layered into the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder. Layers of bright underlying minerality and acidity give the 2010 much of its energy and sheer thrust. This is another exceptional wine, but readers will have to be patient. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030. (AG) 97+" (12/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2015 The Vineyardist Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (99JD, 97RP, 97VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "Just about perfection in a glass, the monumental 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from this Diamond Mountain estate has everything you could want from a mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. It sports a deep purple color as a powerful bouquet of blackberries, plums, incense, scorched earth, damp herbs, and a hint of mint. Incredibly full-bodied and deep, with a profound texture, layers of silky tannins, no hard edges, and a finish that won’t quit, this magical wine will most likely merit a triple-digit score in 4-5 years and keep for more than three decades." (01/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Les Pavots, a 3,440-case blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, comes from Knights Valley. It exhibits a distinctive truffle, chocolate, blackberry and cassis-scented bouquet, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and fabulous concentration, purity and density. This magnificent effort’s open-knit style was surprising as most Northern California 2009s made from Bordeaux varietals are somewhat austere and closed at present. This wine should drink well for another two decades or more. (RP)" (12/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1982 La Mission Haut-Brion, Graves (100RP, 97JS, 95ST, 94DC, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the handful of perfect wines of the vintage, the La Mission still possesses a remarkably dense ruby/purple color with only a slight garnet and lightening at the edge. The fruit-dominated aromatics reveal lots of cassis, blueberry, scorched earth, black truffle, incense, graphite and high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco-like notes. Still exhibiting remarkable concentration, enormous body, silky sweet tannin, and no perceptible acidity, the 1982 remains fresh, delineated and super-compelling...this modern day legend shows no signs of decline. In fact, it may not have yet reached its peak. Anticipated maturity: now-2060+. (RP)" (08/2012)

Bid on this magnum of 2007 Hess Collection "Brother Timothy Mont La Salle" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L). A pioneer by nature, Donald Hess was determined to defy convention and pursue winemaking at elevation, so in 1978, he established The Hess Collection Winery on the site of one of the region’s oldest wineries. He took the opportunity to marry his two creative passions in life—wine and art—and he established an art gallery within the winery as a means of sharing his private art collection. Donald Hess and his wife, Ursula, met through their shared love of art, and today, Ursula’s daughter, Sabrina, and her husband, Tim, continue the family legacy of sharing wine and art and the family’s ongoing commitment to making both accessible to all. About the "Brother Timothy" wine: "Wines scarcely introduced to the greater public, "Brother Timothy" wines encapsulate the spirit of Napa icons which is to make great wine, and to make it for a greater good. In every sip is the perfection

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2014 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (97VN, 95JD, 94WE, 94WS, 93JS, 93RP). Vinous: "The wonderfully nuanced, finessed 2014 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande exudes pedigree. Crème de cassis, licorice, lavender, licorice and sweet spices are front and center, while beams of supporting tannins and acidity give the wine its energy and overall tension. All of the elements are simply in the right place. Powerful and also remarkably delicate, the 2014 Pichon Comtesse might very well be the wine of the vintage on the Left Bank. Don't miss it! (AG)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Bevan "Wildfoote Vixen Block" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96JD, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Vixen Block Wildfoote Vineyard offers up a very serious nose of cassis, blackberry pie and blueberry compote with hints of dried lavender, underbrush, Chinese five spice and cigar box, plus a waft of dark chocolate. Full-bodied and densely packed with black fruit preserves and earthy layers, it has a firm frame of finely grained tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with epically long exotic spice nuances. (LPB)" (12/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1991 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94JG, 93WS). John Gilman: "The 1991 vintage has long been touted as one of the great recent vintages for Cabernet Sauvignon, and this is certainly evident in the '91 Martha's Vineyard. The nose is deep, ripe and absolutely classic in its aromatic mélange of red and black cherries, mint, tobacco, a touch of chocolate, lovely soil tones and a deft framing of new oak. On the palate the wines is deep, full-bodied, pure and quite powerful in style, with a great core of pure fruit, a lovely signature of soil, ripe tannins and impeccable balance on the very, very long and tangy finish. Superb juice, and decidedly more impressive than many of the highly-touted 1991 Cabernets that I reported on several issues ago in the newsletter. This is still a very young wine and will need a good decade more cellaring to really reach its apogee. 2021-2075." (06/2011)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2015 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (98JD, 97JS, 97RP, 96DC, 96VN, 96WE, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "I underrated the 2015 Rauzan-Ségla on release. It’s a big, rich, incredibly sexy wine that’s certainly in the same ballpark as the 2016 (and 2018). Full-bodied, ripe, and concentrated, it has a wonderfully expansive, layered texture as well as an incredible sense of balance. Lots of cassis, leafy herbs, flowery incense, and tobacco notes all emerge from this beauty, which offers sweet tannins as well as a huge finish. This is magical stuff that’s going to keep for three decades or more." (05/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1986 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (100DC, 100JD, 100JS, 100RP, 99VN, 99WS, 98ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1986 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that was picked from 2 October until 16 October. Winemaker Philippe Dhalluin, who was not working at the property back then, told me that the pH was fairly low at 3.54 when it is usually around 3.75, due to the natural tartaric acid in the vines. It has a powerful and intense bouquet as always: exemplary graphite and cedar scents, a touch of black pepper and incense. It seems to unfurl in the glass, like a motor revving its engine. The palate is beautifully balanced with its trademark firm tannic structure, a Mouton-Rothschild with backbone and masculinity. Layers of black fruit intermingling with mint and graphite, a hint of licorice emanating from the Merlot, gently fanning out and my God, it is incredibly long. It is not like the 1985 Mo

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1991 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96VN, 93RP, 91WS). Vinous: "Bright, deep red-ruby. Wonderfully mellow and complex on the nose, offering everything from fresh dark fruits to chocolate, red licorice, flowers and graphite minerality. Pure liquid silk in the mouth; at once sharply delineated and edge-free thanks to superb harmonious acidity, possessing a wonderfully tight core of juicy fruit. This very dry, classic Howell Mountain Cabernet finishes with serious dusty but sweet tannins and will still improve. Stunning wine. (ST)" (08/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 TOR Kenward "East Meets West" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another tiny cuvée, but certainly a magnificent one, is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon East Meets West, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from the To Kalon and Terra Roja vineyards. With great mouthfeel, fabulous intensity, plenty of fruitcake, cassis, licorice, incense and Asian spice, the wine is opulent and fleshy with low acidity and enormous fruit and length. I was trying to see if this would last a minute on the palate and it almost did. Drink it over the next 20 years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1992 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94VN). Vinous: "We have better luck with the 1992 Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon Martha’s Vineyard, which is stellar. The flavors are warm, soft and resonant in a supple, super-expressive Cabernet that is peaking yet shows no signs of fading. Sweet floral, mint and spice notes flesh out in the glass, but the 1992 is first and foremost a wine of texture. The pliant, sexy finish makes the 1992 absolutely irresistible. (AG)" (10/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Tenuta San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (96W&S, 95DC, 95JS, 93ST, 93VN, 92RP, 91WE). Wine & Spirits: "Great terroirs often prove themselves in the most extreme vintages, as Sassicaia has done in the violent heat of 2003. The vineyard produced a supple, subtle and elegant wine. To describe the fruit character one might resort to analogies with black currant and smoky black tea, but it's more a textural experience for now, a mass of pleasure, hard to grasp. Its oak treatment delivers the kind of heady richness found in young Latour; its soil character provides a completely different context, though no less grand. Probably best starting at ten to fifteen years of age, this is balanced to develop for years after that." (04/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2000 Angélus, St-Emilion (99RP, 96WS, 95JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Approaching perfection, this wine is inky, bluish/purple-colored to the rim, offering up notes of incense, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, licorice, graphite and spring flowers. A touch of roasted espresso bean is also present. The wine has great concentration, a magnificent, full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity, and well-integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. This beauty seems to be in mid-adolescence with at least 25-30 years of life ahead. (RP)" (08/2015)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Calon-Ségur, St-Estèphe (96JS, 96VN, 95WE, 94JD, 93WS, 92RP). Vinous: "The 2014 Calon Ségur is a real show-stopper. Unusually ripe, powerful and seductive, the wine exudes class. Myriad shades of plum, sweet red cherry, pomegranate, spice and blood orange are all on display. Wild flowers, tobacco and host of more aromatic notes develop in the glass. Above all else, though, the 2014 is a wine of pure power and breadth. This is yet another fabulous showing for the 2014 Calon Ségur, a wine that vies for top honors in this vintage. Don't miss it. The blend is 67 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 19 % Merlot, 15 % Cabernet Franc and 2 % Petit Verdot. (AG) 96+" (02/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 1997 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 92ST, 92W&S, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Les Pavots originates from a hillside vineyard overlooking the Knight's Valley that has 23 acres planted with Bordeaux varietals. The 1997 blend consists of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 9% Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged in French oak (50% new), and bottled without filtration. Fortunately, there are 4,351 cases of 750 ml bottles, as well as 330 cases of magnums. A blue/black/purple color is followed by an extraordinary bouquet of toast, blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and cedar. Full-bodied, with silky tannin, low acidity, and layers of concentrated, pure black fruits judiciously wrapped in subtle toasty oak, this wine can be drunk early, but promises to hit its peak in 5-7 years, and last for two or more decades.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2009 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - (97-98JS), 98VN, 97WE, 96WS, 95CG, 94RP, 93ST) in original wood. Vinous: "Shafer's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is all high notes. Sweet red plum and cherry notes meld into mint, spice and new leather, all supported by silky, polished tannins that add finesse to the plush fruit. Rich, opulent and beautifully textured throughout, the 2009 is going to provide fabulous, viscerally thrilling drinking pretty much right out of the gate. This is a great Hillside Select. Frankly, I can't imagine anyone who enjoys Hillside Select not wanting the 2009 in their cellar. The persistent, resonant finish is pure sensuality. (AG)" (11/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 96WS, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a very classic nose of cassis, warm plums and crushed blackberries with notions of cigar box, garrigue, damp soil and truffles plus wafts of menthol and underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally. Drink through 2045. (LPB)" (06/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend (97JS, 94RP, 93DC, 92WS). James Suckling: "Aromas of spearmint, sweet tobacco, cigars and blackcurrants follow through to a medium to full body, very polished and refined tannins and an intense finish. Extremely fine and long. Savory. Extremely long finish. Biodynamically grown." (01/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Multi-Format Lot, including 1-750ml-bottle and 1-magnum of 2002 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94CG, 91RP, 90ST, 90W&S). Connoisseurs Guide writes: "Intensely aromatic and redolent of raspberries, cassis, cocoa and touches of loam, this very rich and powerful young wine follows through with wonderfully concentrated flavors that are every bit as big and fully filled as expected. Although its sheer sense of mass and immediacy will hold it in reasonable stead as a near-term partner to meats on the bone, it has the strength and the structure to grow even better with time and deserves a wait of at least five years if not ten. *Two Stars*" (12/2004)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Margaux, Margaux (96W&S, 96WE, 94RP, 94ST, 94WS, 93JD). Wine Enthusiast: "If one of 2004’s enduring characteristics is its freshness, then Margaux epitomizes this. It is so deliciously fresh and floating, with great black currant and blueberry fruits, pointed up by spice, mint and a sense of elegance and poise. There’s no doubt about its aging potential either: just feel that heart of firm tannins. (RV)" (06/2007)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (95WS, 94RP, 93DC, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "Bubbling over with crushed berries, currants and spices, with tobacco notes. Beautiful. Full-bodied, with gorgeously velvety tannins and a long finish of pretty fruit. This is a racy yet elegant Lafite. Classy. *Collectibles* (JS)" (03/2005)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1966 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac. Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc, dating back to the 16th century. This was made in the Dupin era, which extended from 1932 until it was purchased by the Borie family in 1978. The vineyards have remain little changed since the classification of the Médoc in 1855: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with some vines dating back to 1947. Grand-Puy-Lacoste earned its reputation for producing classic Pauillac--full-bodied, tannic, concentrated and ageworthy, with currant fruit and undercurrents of cigar box and truffle. In his book "Vintage Wine," critic Michael Broadbent writes of the 1966 Grand-Puy-Lacoste: "This always is a long-distance runner, and a château whose wine I now buy every vintage. My first taste of the '66 was a pleasant, piquant Justerini & Brooks' bottling in 1971. At a Decanter tasting in 1979, softer than Ducru; a well-developed, characteristically s

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98JD, 98RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, blocks B1, B2 and E2 planted to clone 337, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS has a very deep purple-black color and is a little reticent to begin, offering glimpses at crushed black berries, black cherries and black currants with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, dark chocolate and dusty earth with a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied and tautly structured with rock-solid, firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the muscular fruit, it finishes on a lingering earthy note. Forget this one over the next 4-5 years, and drink it over the next 25+. 1,096 cases produced. (LPB) 98+" (12/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1994 Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 93CG, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "1994 produced 4,863 cases from a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This is one of the great vintages of the 90s, and Spottswoode hit the bull’s-eye with this opaque, ruby/purple-colored wine that still has incredible youthfulness and vibrancy. Fabulous fruit intensity, blackcurrants, black cherries and blackberry, along with charcoal, chocolate and graphite, are all present in this superb, full-bodied, stunningly multidimensional wine that is only now approaching mid-adolescence at age 22. This wine has at least 25-30 more years of life left in it. It is a great one. (RP)" (08/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2013 The Vineyardist Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is flirting with perfection already. It is 100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon from clones 7, 33 and 337, and the harvest took place in late October. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak, of which three-fourths were Darnajou barrels and 25% Taransaud. Unfortunately, only 240 cases were produced. The wine is an absolutely spectacular Diamond Mountain Cabernet. Dense purple, with notes of charcoal, burning embers, licorice, blackberry and cassis, the wine hits the palate with a cascade of gorgeously pure fruit, a full-bodied opulence, but sweet tannin appears in the finish, giving the wine grip and delineation.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 96VN, 94WE, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is another tour de force from this estate that's reminiscent of first growth Bordeaux from a vintage like 2009. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in new barrels, it offers incredible notes of blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil shavings and crushed rocks in a full-bodied, decadent, insanely layered and seamless style. This beauty possesses ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a forward, already hard to resist style, yet it's going to keep for more than two decades. (JD)" (06/2017)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1987 & 1990 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1987 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 90VN) and 4-bottles of 1990 Robert Mondavi "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90WS). Of the 1987 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "This extraordinary wine is backward and unevolved, but even neophytes will recognize its potential greatness. The opaque, saturated, dark purple color reveals no sign of age. The huge, smoky, oaky, blackcurrant, herb, and vanillin-scented nose only hints at what will be achieved with further evolution. Sweet, decadently rich, dense, highly extracted flavors are wrapped around a full-bodied, chewy, super-concentrated, moderately tannic wine that, ideally, needs 7-8 more years of cellaring. It is a 25 to 30 year California Cabernet Sauvignon that is just beginning to become civilized. A potential legend

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Latour, Pauillac (100WS, (98-99JS), 98VN, 96JG, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "This is one of my favorite wines ever. Full-bodied, with layers of silky fruit and masses of currant, mineral and berry character. Amazing. It's a wine with perfect structure, perfect strength. It's 1961 Latour in modern clothes. It's hard not to drink it now. (JS)" (02/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 2001 Ausone, St-Emilion (98RP, 95WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2001 Ausone has put on even more weight than I anticipated. The “wine of the vintage,” this inky/purple-colored 2001 boasts a provocative, floral perfume of crushed stones, raspberries, blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and smoke. What makes it so sensational are the layers of flavor and nuances that unfold as the wine sits in the glass as well as on the palate. This is an extraordinarily intense effort, but remarkably elegant and well-balanced. It ideally needs another decade of cellaring; it should last for 4-5 decades! Alain Vauthier is a perfectionist, which is evidenced by what he has produced over the last half dozen vintages at Ausone. Kudos to readers lucky enough to find a bottle or two ... and live long enough to enjoy them in their prime. (RP)" (06/2004)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1995 Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 92VN, 92WS, 90CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, and the last wine made by Pam Starr at Rombauer Vineyards, the 1995 offers worthy competition to the magnificent 1994, which was more highly heralded. A touch of spring flowers, intermixed with crème de cassis, licorice, lead-pencil shavings and cedar, are all present in this wine of great intensity and full-bodied power, but with an elegance and finesse that, again, similarly suggests a Château Margaux made in St. Helena. This beautiful wine should continue to drink well for another 25 years. (RP)" (08/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Angélus, St-Emilion (99RP, 98JD, 94VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, this is clearly the greatest Angelus until the 2000, 2003 and then the perfect 2005. Beautiful, sweet plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass of this opaque, purple wine that still hasn’t lost much in color. Deep, opulent, voluptuously textured, full-bodied and multidimensional, this is a stunner and just now approaching its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for at least another 20 years.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (97JD, 97RP, 96WS, 95ST, 94WE, 93DC). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-Canet has long been one of the stars of the vintage and this might well be the best of over a dozen showings of this wine. However, do not expect ostentation on the nose. This is 2005 and like many wines of this vintage, even with considerable decanting, it remained broody and introspective on the nose, as if it is checking you out and seeing if you are worthy. Once you have been accepted, then it swings the doors open to reveal gorgeous scents of blackberry, briary and cassis fruit, perhaps a little more sous-bois than I have noticed compared to previous bottles. The palate is medium-bodied, but dense and structured—certainly a more masculine Pontet-Canet built for long-term ageing. Yet it retains marvelous freshness and vitality all the way through to the pencil-lead, quite saline finish. I

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Promontory Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97RP, 94VN, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Promontory is a magnificent Bordeaux-styled red offering up notes of burning embers, scorched earth (not terribly dissimilar from a top Pessac-Leognan such as La Mission Haut-Brion), black fruits, loamy undertones of minerality, and hints of camphor and background oak. Dense, masculine, rich and full, this 2009 is built for the long-term, although for a 2009, the tannins are remarkably well-integrated, giving the wine definition and structure. (RP)" (10/2013)

Bid on this bottle of 1997 Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 96W&S, (92-93ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon...ranks alongside the finest Tony Soter has produced. Don't miss it! Opaque purple-colored, with a gorgeously seamless personality, this unfined/unfiltered wine exhibits classic aromas of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and toast. Rich and full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a multilayered mid-palate, and a terrific finish, it possesses accessibility and opulence...(RP)" (06/2000)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2005 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96DC, 95JD, 95RP, 95VN). Decanter: "A long, cool growing season, with harvest from the end of September to the end of October, delivered fantastic flavour development. More Bordeaux-like than most in the tasting, it was highly aromatic, with a lush cassis, violet and graphite nose, and intense flavours of dark plum cherry fruit, cocoa, and notes of espresso. It’s expressive right now, yet the powerful tannins say it’s got years to go. One for collectors. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035 (EM)" (06/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1970 Mayacamas Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98JG). John Gilman: "As was the case with the 1974 Mayacamas cabernet, I had not tasted a bottle of the 1970 vintage from Bob Travers in a long, long time, and was absolutely thrilled to find it paired up with the 1974 at this particular dinner. The 1970 vintage has long been my absolute favorite from Mayacamas in the first decade of the Travers’ era here (which hit the ground running with the outstanding 1968!), though perhaps one day the 1978 will be able to catch up with this celestial wine. Today, the 1970 Mayacamas cabernet is at its absolute zenith and drinking with stunning complexity, offering up a pure and precise bouquet of black cherries, cassis, petroleum jelly, Cuban cigar wrapper, a touch of eucalyptus, complex soil tones and a topnote of chipotle peppers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and perfectly balanced, with great depth of fruit at the core, superb soil signature, lovel

Bid on this bottle of 1997 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92RP, 92ST, 92W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, is a beauty. The healthy ruby/purple color is followed by classic, unevolved but promising aromas of minerals, cedar, smoke, and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, a sweet, lush mid-palate, and ripe tannin in the finish. The top-notch 1997 is a classic, restrained. (RP)" (12/2000)

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (99JD, 96JS, 96RP, 96VN, 96WE, 94WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly from Champoux with the balance from Palengat and Wallula vineyards. Crème de cassis, graphite, black licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and hints of chocolate and emerge from this beauty and it continues to gain depth and nuance with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, and layered with an incredible purity and elegance on the palate, it's already accessible but has more than enough tannin, depth, and balance to evolve for two decades or more."
