Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Le Grappin Savigny-Les-Beaune Blanc. From the producer: "Le Grappin began in 2011 following Andrew’s five-year journey working for some of the world's great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay artisans in California, Central Otago, Burgundy and the Yarra Valley. Our vision for Le Grappin is to seek out special sites in the over-looked, under-appreciated reaches of Burgundy. We seek out viticulteurs who tend their vines throughout the year with exceptional care and attention, to give the grapes the best opportunity to shine. Our job is to ensure the wine reaches it's true potential; working by hand, with small lots, giving each wine as much care and attention as our viticulteurs have paid to the vines."
Starting Bid: $190.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Leon Barral "Cuvée Valiniere" Faugères (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Mourvèdre and Syrah, the 2014 Valiniere is a bit richer and darker-fruited than the Jadis but not otherwise more impressive. The fruit is plummy, the wine full-bodied on the palate, but it remains silky-textured and long. These were two outstanding offerings from the talented Didier Barral. (JC)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Saxum Paso Robles Rhône Blend Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2008 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (98JS, 96RP, 95ST, 95WS) and 1-bottle of 2008 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (98RP, 96JD, 96WS, 94ST). Of the 2008 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah,James Suckling writes: "This is a gorgeous wine with subtle dried meat, minerals and ripe fruit. Full and balanced with fine tannins and a long finish. Very beautiful. Harmonious and layered. Love the finish, with no heat. Just right. Spice and meat hint of wood. Phenomenal. " (10/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2017 Purlieu "Beckstoffer To Kalon" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard offers up a beautiful perfume of fruit cake, preserved plums, potpourri and blackberry preserves with nuances of exotic spices and fragrant earth. The full-bodied, decadently fruited palate is nicely juxtaposed by fantastic freshness and plush tannins, supporting loads of black fruit and earthy layers, finishing long and spicy. (LPB) 95+" (10/2019)
Starting Bid: $310.00

Bid on this 7-bottle lot of 2000 Quinault L'Enclos, St-Emilion ((90-92ST), 91WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium ruby. Dark berries, bitter chocolate and sexy smoky oak tones on the nose. Fat, full, concentrated and lush, with strong soil character and sound vinosity, giving the wine a chewy texture. Denser than the 2001. Finishes long and spicy, with ripe, suave tannins. (ST)" (05/2002)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1995 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS). Wine Spectator: "A seductive style, with lots of spicy, vanilla-scented oak that leads to a rich, complex core of currant, black cherry, olive and plum. The tannins are smooth and polished. (JL)" (08/1998)
Starting Bid: $335.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2016 Aubert "Ritchie Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (96VN). Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is powerful and phenolically intense. Orchard fruit, mint, white flowers and melon are pushed forward. Deep and ample on the palate, with tremendous structure, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Although very much tightly wound today, the Ritchie is one of the most promising wines in the range. Drink through 2028. (AG) 96+" (04/2018)
Starting Bid: $203.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2009 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 3" Central Coast Syrah Multi-Format Lot (OWC) (OWC), including 3-bottles of 2009 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 3" Central Coast Syrah (96RP, 96VN, 94ST) and 1-bottle of 2009 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 3" Central Coast Syrah (1.5L) (96RP, 96VN, 94ST). Of the 2009 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 3" Central Coast Syrah,Vinous writes: "The 2009 Next of Kyn - No. 3 comes across as a mix of the 2007 and 2008, with the sensual richness of the former and the darker profile of the latter. Because of its impeccable balance, the 2009 is hugely rewarding today. Succulent dark cherry, cloves, menthol and licorice add nuance throughout, but above all else, the 2009 is a wine that can be enjoyed with minimum fuss over the next decade or so. This retrospective tasting provided a great opportunity to revisit the first seven releases of Manfred and Elaine Krankl’s N

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (100RP, 97JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, is the 2014 The Absurd, basically a choice of their finest barrels, or as winemaker and owner Benoit Touquette says, “The crème de la crème.” This is another perfect wine equaling their incredible 2013. Yet the 2014 is slightly more forward and showy, as many 2013s are just beginning to shut down. There are 250 cases of this majestic wine that has an opaque purple color, extraordinary nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry, creosote, charcoal, toast and spice. The wine has unbelievable fruit on the attack, midpalate and finish, compelling purity, texture and a finish of close to a full minute. It is (as advertised by the winery) a “showcase of the best of Napa Valley with the freedom of expression that results from no rules.” Drink now-2035. (RP)" (12/2016)
Starting Bid: $865.00

Bid on this magnum of 2013 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (99JS, 98JD, 98RP, 98WE, 97VN, 94WS, 93CG). 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. Available in September 2017. Try in 2023. *Top 100 of 2017*" (11/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 2015 Schrader "Colesworthy - Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (OWC - 100JD, 98JS, 97RP) in original wood. Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Colesworthy is a barrel selection from the Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena. It takes the classic LPV release and ratchets up the intensity without any additional sense of weight or heaviness. With incredible cassis, liquid violets, white flowers, and a distinct earthy, loamy minerality, this beauty has insane purity of fruit, a huge, layered, full-bodied style on the palate, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish. Don’t miss it!" (12/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 1973 Chateau Montelena Napa & Alexander Valleys Chardonnay. Winner of the 1976 Judgement of Paris, this wine was directly associated with bringing international recognition to the California wine industry. Based in Calistoga, the winery is famous for its wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay in particular. According to Robert Parker: "There is something reassuring about seeing a bottle of Chateau Montelena. This classic, old Napa Valley winery is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, but they can also fashion wonderful Chardonnay from the Alexander and Napa valleys." (10/93)
Starting Bid: $1,050.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Bevan "Tench Vineyard EE" Oakville Bordeaux Blend (98JS, 98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Proprietary Red EE Tench Vineyard is scented of pure plums and ripe blueberries with redcurrants and touches of lavender, roses, bay leaves and dusty earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm, fine-grained, vibrant and refreshing, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB)" (10/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 d'Yquem, Sauternes ((98-100JG), 100RP, (97-100ST), (98-100WE), 98JS, 98WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 d'Yquem bursts from the glass with gregarious crème caramel, allspice, dried apricots, mandarin peel and pineapple upside down cake scents plus a fragrant undercurrent of fungi, acacia honey, candied ginger, musk perfume and frangipani. Full-bodied and full-on hedonic in the mouth, the rich, tightly wound layers are still amazingly youthful with bags of citrus sparks and an incredibly long, perfumed finish. Possessing a residual sugar of 157 grams per liter and 13.6% alcohol as well as a laser-focused line of freshness, the rock-solid structure and through-the-roof opulence here is simply mind blowing. Pure perfection. (LPB)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1986 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 93VN, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings, both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The opaque purple-colored 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers awesome richness, mindboggling intensity, huge tannin, a massive mouthfeel, and a closed yet formidably long, well-endowed finish. This wine could be put in a tasting of 1994 California Cabernets and not stand out as a 10-year old wine. Give it another 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 25-30 years ... amazing! (RP)" (08/1996)

Bid on this bottle of 2004 Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Reignots" (92JG, 92ST, 91BH). John Gilman: "The 2004 Reignots is more closed and primary than the Clos du Château, but shows equally fine purity and a distinct lack of the peppery qualities of many 2004s in this stage of development. The bouquet is deep and lovely, as it offers up a classic mix of black raspberries, black cherries, fresh thyme, woodsmoke, game, coffee, a great base of soil and a deft framing of spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure, with lovely focus and balance, excellent mid-palate depth, and a long, moderately tannic finish that closes with a distinct note of thyme. Fine juice in the making. 92+" (04/2009)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Kongsgaard "The Judge" Napa Valley Chardonnay (100RP, 96VN, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of course, it’s hard to find any, but there are usually about eight to 15 barrels of his estate Chardonnay from Coombsville called 'The Judge' in honor of his father. From old Wente clones originally planted in 1975, yields are rarely in excess of one ton of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its extraordinary intensity and richness. The 2013 Chardonnay The Judge is perfect, and certainly one of the greatest Chardonnays I have ever tasted. Keeping in mind that Kongsgaard is no youngster at this game (2015 was his 41st vintage making wine), his 2013 The Judge, from the white volcanic soil in Coombsville called tufa, is an amazing wine of great intensity, power, glory, elegance, texture, density and richness. The wine offers up loads of tangerine oil, caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, white peach, apricots, and wet stones. It seems to be a smorgasbor

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2014 Orin Swift "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (Equinox V)" Cabernet Sauvignon in original wood. Equinox is Orin Swift's members-only bottling, with each year offering a completely different varietal composition. Winery notes: "Inky in complexion with a brick red rim, the wine displays an inviting nose of soft black plum, roasted marshmallow, mixed berry pie and a hint of white pepper. A commanding opening of dark berries, currant, and ripe plum are complemented with engaging impressions of sarsaparilla, chocolate covered coffee beans and sweet oak. The wine finishes with grippy, chalky tannins that linger indefinitely. Cabernet Sauvignon."
Starting Bid: $500.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 100JD, 100RP, 98VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scarecrow is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from two acres of old vines planted in 1945 by John Daniel and dry farmed. Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes sashaying out of the glass with tantalizing notions of violets, lavender, Black Forest cake, mulberries, tobacco leaf and fragrant earth with a core of warm cassis, kirsch, Chinese five spice, rose hip tea and cedar chest. The palate is full-bodied and super concentrated yet possesses great energy with vibrant red and black fruits and loads of mineral accents, framed by very ripe, super fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long with the most incredible perfume. Hedonistically, undeniably and deliciously perfect. (LPB)" (10/2018)

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 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 3-bottle lot of 2008 Sine Qua Non "The Duel" Syrah (99RP, 96VN, 95ST, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A prodigious effort that possesses overflowing richness and depth, the 2008 Syrah The Duel (88% Syrah, 6% Grenache and 6% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard) delivers an off-the-hook drinking experience with decadent cassis, blackberry, smoked meats, crushed flowers and hints of spice all soaring from the glass. A full-bodied, unctuous Syrah that stays fresh and elegant, with vibrant acidity, it needs a solid decant if drinking anytime soon and will see its 20th birthday in fine form. Drink now-2028. (JD)" (08/2013)

Bid on this magnum of 1997 Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (98RP, 94VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 1997 is just short of perfection from this great vintage in Napa Valley. A spectacular wine, it was the first made by Rosemary Cakebread. Production was quite high, as the new plantings started to fully produce, with 4,800+ cases declared. This is wine that fills the olfactory senses with gorgeous ripeness, blueberries, black raspberries, blackberries and cassis, while spring flowers and a touch of oak still lingers in the aromatics. When the wine hits the palate, the extraordinary intensity, purity and multi-dimensional complexity all seem to converge with a cascade of fruit, glycerin and richness. Like most Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignons, it is only 13.8% alcohol. This is a magnificent wine, a young adolescent in the scheme of its potentially fascinating evolution and should have a good 25-30+ ye

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: $300.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Tasting Lot (OWC) (OWC), including 3-bottles of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (97RP, 97VN) and 3-bottles of 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (98RP, 96VN). Of the 2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "A wine that needs to be forgotten in the cellar for 5-6 years, the 2011 Syrah Patine checks in as a blend of roughly 97% Syrah and the balance Roussanne and Viognier. It too comes all from the estate's Eleven Confessions Vineyard and saw 39 months in 63% new French oak. Backward, tight, concentrated and structured, with full-bodied richness and depth, it gives up Guigal La Landonne like aromas and flavors of graphite, sweet oak, smoked meats, pepper and black raspberry and cassis-like fruit. While it shows the vinta

Bid on this bottle of 2013 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100DC, 100JS, 100RP, 100VN). Vinous: "The 2013 Dominus overwhelms all the senses with its magnificent overall balance and towering intensity. Deep and nearly impenetrable in the glass, the 2013 boasts off the charts dry extract and overall power. Violets, smoke, black cherries, menthol, incense, crème de cassis and dark spices are some of the many signatures that take shape in the glass. Even better in bottle than it was in barrel, the 2013 is utterly magnificent. This is a remarkably vivid, nuanced wine considering its sheer size. (AG)" (01/2015)

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. (RP)" (12/2000)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2013 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94RP, 93VN, 92WS, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large vineyard (Gap's Crown is roughly 130 acres), the 2013 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard comes from a smaller 37-acre parcel owned by Kosta Browne, which lies at an elevation of 1,000 feet above sea level. Harvest all towards the end of September and aged 16 months in 51% new French oak, it has a slightly darker slant in its wild strawberry, black raspberry, spice and sappy flower stem-like aromas and flavors. Elegant, seamless and downright pretty, it grows on you with time in the glass and is a gorgeous Pinot Noir to drink over the coming decade. (JD)" (10/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 95VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More serious, and one of the wines of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has uncommon concentration and depth in the vintage, as well as a broad, structured profile that will allow it to age gracefully. Loaded with sweet creme de cassis, exotic spice, licorice and graphite, it’s a full-bodied, elegant and classically styled effort that has nothing out of place, fine, building tannin and a rock star finish. It will be approachable at an earlier stage than most vintages, yet still have two decades of longevity. (JD)" (06/2014)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2005 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (94RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Broken Stones, a blend of 74% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre, is a beauty. Notes of licorice, forest floor, pepper, spice box, and loads of black and red fruits jump from the glass as well as saturate the palate. This full-bodied, opulent wine has crisp acidity, some heady alcohol, and loads of flavor, depth, and richness. It is a savory wine to drink now and over the next 7-10 years. (RP) 94+" (08/2007)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Sine Qua Non "Female" California Grenache (98JD, 98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing similar to a previous bottle tasted in Colorado, the 2013 Grenache Female (78% Grenache, 19% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre) is more high toned and pretty than the 2014, with perfumed notes of black raspberries, licorice, herbes de Provence and violets. Similar on the palate to the 2014, yet perhaps with a touch more tannin, give this beauty a few years and drink it through 2033. (JD)" (08/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Produttori del Barbaresco "Rabaja" Riserva (95WS, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "A delicious nose of ripe fruit and Indian spices, with perfumes. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a beautiful core of fruit. Features blackberry, chocolate and citrus fruit on the finish." (12/2009)
Starting Bid: $245.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Diamond Creek "Gravelly Meadow" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Spectator: "Earthy and complex--typical of this vineyard--with layers of clay, spice, berry and cherry; long and lingering on the finish. Needs time.--Diamond Creek vertical. Best after 2002. (JL)" (06/1998)
Starting Bid: $355.00

Bid on this magnum of 2001 Merry Edwards "Klopp Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L) (93W&S, 92WE, 91CG). Wine Enthusiast: "From the southern, cooler part of the valley, but on a sunny ridge above the fog, a fascinating study in contrasts. It has brilliantly crisp, citrusy acidity, but is a fat, fleshy wine, with mouthwatering flavors of black cherries, cola, mocha and gingersnap. The scour of dusty tannins on the finish suggests this wine will hold for several years."

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Pride Mountain Sonoma-Napa Counties Merlot (1.5L) (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium-deep red. Sexy, expressive aromas of redcurrant, red plum, chocolate and nutty oak. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with enticing flavors of red berries, cocoa powder and spices. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and lovely lingering perfume. According to winemaker Sally Jackson, the Merlot in 2009 had less weight and structure than usual, but this wine is a charmer. (ST)" (05/2012)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Aubert Chardonnay Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2015 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (100RP, 97VN, 94JS, 92WS) and 1-bottle of 2015 Aubert "Sugar Shack" Napa Valley Chardonnay (97JS, 97RP, 93VN). Of the 2015 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "A touch closed and youthfully shy to begin, the 2015 Chardonnay Lauren Estate soon powers up to reveal intense grapefruit, citrus peel, yuzu and honeyed pear notes over suggestions of crushed stones, struck match, baking bread and lemongrass. The palate is fine, fresh, elegant and incredibly layered, with the tightly wound layers offering glimpses at incredible depth, finishing long and minerally. Consider holding on to this one for another couple of years and drinking it over the next 12+. (LPB)" (10/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L) (96JS, 96W&S, 96WE, 96WS, 94DC, 92RP). Wine Enthusiast: "Classic Lynch-Bages with just a bit of extra power and richness. While the tannins are structured, it is the velvety fruit that rolls around the mouth that is the most dominant character. It is coming together into a wine that will be big and dense, but never over the top. (RV)" (06/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1997 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91WE, 90CG). Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is dark and serious, with brooding black-cherry, leather and cedar aromas. In the mouth, flavors of black plums, mint-menthol and tobacco—all with a foresty accent—fill the palate. On the heavy side of medium-weight, with a supple texture, it has a long, toasty finish with fine tannins. " (11/2000)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Cliff Lede "Poetry" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 94VN, 93W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The quintessential expression of an elegant Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry (86% Cabernet Sauvignon) combines elegance with power. Layered and full-bodied with an ethereal lightness as well as touches of oak and tannin, it is gorgeously pure and textured yet strikingly long and intense. Bursting with flavor, but neither heavy nor cloying, give it 3-4 years of cellaring, and enjoy it over the next 25+ years. (RP)" (12/2009)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Kutch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (93WE, 92VN). Wine Enthusiast: "This is made from the producer's several single-vineyard sites, including McDougall, Signal Ridge, Falstaff and Bohan. Concentrated flavors of black cherry and wild vanilla complement an earthy core of dried herb with an undeniable freshness on the midpalate and lengthy finish. (VB)" (06/2018)
Starting Bid: $180.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2002 Dönnhoff Norheimer Dellchen Riesling Spätlese Nahe (97RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This Spatlese is extraordinary, hovering in that zone bordering perfection in which wines touch the soul. A wine that demands introspection, the 2002 Riesling Spatlese Norheimer Dellchen reveals enormous ripeness in its slate and pear aromas. Light to medium-bodied, displaying mind-blowing focus, refinement, and depth, it demands silence and awe. Portobello mushrooms, candied limes, and flint can be detected in its highly nuanced character as well as throughout its extensive finish. All Hail the King of Spatlese! Donnhoff’s line-up of Spatlesen is second to none. (PR)" (02/2004)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Domaine Marc Colin Chassagne Montrachet "Les Encégnières". Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here the nose is slightly fresher with a pretty mix of both white and yellow orchard fruit aromas that give way to succulent and impressively rich medium weight flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that imparts a textured palate impression. There is good drive and detail to the linear and markedly dry finish. A qualitative choice but these are clearly not the same wines. *Outstanding, Top Value*" (06/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1993 Domaine de Montille Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens" (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "For years the '93 de Montille Rugiens was impenetrable and it's still incredibly youthful and in fact, not a great deal has changed except to note that little by little, the wine is gradually emerging from its awkward adolescence with a gorgeous and still primary nose of red and black pinot fruit that reflects obvious mineral notes. The vibrant and firm medium full flavors are impressively complex and are underpinned by firm but integrated tannins that leave the finish with a dusty texture. This will require the better part of the next decade to come around but it should be worth the wait." (11/2006)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2002 Silverado "Limited Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91WE). Wine Enthusiast: "With a preponderance of Stags Leap fruit, this 100% Cabernet is aggressive in tannins. It’s not at all ready to drink now, so astringent and dusty is it. But the core is rich in black currant and cherry fruit, and the wine should develop, despite being low in acidity. Best after 2009. " (03/2006)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2006 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (97RP, 96WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Broken Stones (63% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and 13% Mourvèdre) blew me away. An inky/purple color and a dazzling, explosive bouquet of black raspberries, camphor, cassis, forest floor, and spring flowers are followed by a rich, elegant wine offering laser-like precision as well as a striking minerality. It is a powerful yet graceful effort that should drink well for 10-12+ years. One of California’s super-star producers, Saxum owns one of the state’s most remarkable vineyard sites, the James Berry Vineyard, which has been broken into a number of different blocks, all planted on rocky limestone hillsides. This estate’s approach to winemaking is decidedly artisanal, with extraordinarily small yields as well as a minimalistic winemaking philosophy. (RP)" (08/2009)

Bid on this bottle of 1959 Suduiraut, Sauternes (97VN). Vinous: "The 1959 Suduiraut is a vintage that I have been fortunate to have met three times before and mark my words, this is one of the greatest the château has ever produced. Deep amber in color, it has a striking bouquet with intense aromas of orange pith, quince jus, Clementine and beeswax that just bursts from the glass and frankly, overshadows anything produced until the 21st century. The palate is scintillating: intense and clean botrytised honeyed fruit, a razor-sharp line of acidity that keeps this on its toes. There is something so crystalline about this 1959 that it leaves you perplexed why or how the château lost that quality for so many years. It is a truly fabulous Sauternes and one of the high points of the estate. 103gm/L residual sugar and 14.9% alcohol. Tasted at a private dinner in Bordeaux. (NM)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Aubert "Sugar Shack" Napa Valley Chardonnay (98JS, 98RP, 95VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay Sugar Shack is produced from Montrachet clone vines grown in Rutherford (Napa Valley). POW! It comes charging out of the glass, all guns blazing! Notes of lemon tart, lime cordial and preserved pineapples leap from the glass, followed by suggestions of chopped cashews, coriander seed, juniper and aniseed. Full-bodied, the palate has a seductively satiny texture and soft acidity, leading with bold, expressive stone fruit preserves and spicy layers, finishing very long and very decadent.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2000, 2005 & 2006 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2000 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS, 91WE), 1-bottle of 2005 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS, 91CG), and 1-bottle of 2006 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92WS, 90CG, 90ST). Of the 2000 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,Wine Spectator writes: "Packs in lots of ripe, rich, complex Cabernet flavors, gushing with ripe currant, plum and wild berry, turning spicy and revealing pretty oak and herb shadings as well. Long, smooth aftertaste. (JL)" (02/2003)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Realm "Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 98JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 400 cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard, which is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. This comes from the backstreets of St. Helena and the site basically looks like a quarry with its extreme gravelly soils. The wine is made from clone 337, which may be my favorite of the Cabernet clones. As I have said before, this is a Mission Haut-Brion on steroids – an incredibly fabulous wine with notes of scorched earth, charcoal embers, blackberry and blueberry fruit, an almost endless mouthfeel with powerful fruit, but elegance as well as purity. A thoroughly flawless and seamless full-bodied wine with 30 years of upside, this is pure perfection. If you have the patience, try to hold off for a couple of years, as this is one of the more structured of the 2014s. (RP)" (12/2016)
