Bid on this bottle of 2016 Carter "Beckstoffer To Kalon - The O.G." Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 99RP, 96VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The O.G. comes all from the 337 clone of Cabernet Sauvignon and, like all these wines, was brought up in new French oak. It's slightly more fresh, focused, and chiseled compared to the G.T.O and has building notes of blackcurrants, camphor, scorched earth, chocolate, and graphite, with a beautiful violet character coming through with time in the glass. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and powerful, with perfect balance between its fruit, tannins, acidity, and alcohol, it's a monumental Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to drink beautifully for 2+ decades." (01/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina (98RP, 98JS, 94VN, 94W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2012 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard almost made me fall from my chair. It is the expression of elegance and austerity coupled with strong minerality. It is mostly Cabernet Franc from a very chalky vineyard in Gualtallary at 1,430 meters altitude that fermented together with a small percentage of Malbec. In 2012 they fine tuned the élevage and fermentation, which was in rolling 500-liter barrels that were new in 2006 (so by then quite neutral), where the wine was kept for one more year and then transferred to 1,000-liter egg-shaped cement vats for one further year. (LG)"

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Castello dei Rampolla "Sammarco" Toscana (100VN, 97JS, 96RP, 95ST, 94WS). Vinous: "The 2010 Sammarco tastes like biting into a combination of graphite, crushed rocks, smoke, violets, kirsch, lavender and sweet spices. The flavors are intense and concentrated, yet also incredibly nuanced. Firm tannins give the wine an extra kick of energy on the sculpted finish. I don't expect the 2010 will be ready to drink anytime soon, but it is a real pleasure to revisit today, as it is just as stunning as it has always been. In a word: magnificent! (AG)" (10/2015)

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (94RP, (90-93VN), (89-91WS)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Oakville Estate Proprietary Red turned out to be a final blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. There are around 2,300+ cases of this wine, which has a deep ruby/purple color and a beautifully sweet nose of blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some burning embers, spring flowers, cedar, and subtle wood. It is full-bodied and dense, with hints of espresso roast and chocolate in the mouth. Precise, pure, and rich, it is a beauty that I think will age for at least two or more decades. (RP)" (12/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1986 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95WS, 94RP). Wine Spectator: "This remains a remarkably complex and flavorful wine, but now it's elegant and refined as well, with polished tannins. Classic Caymus in that it stretches the flavors, with a range that goes from herb and tea to ripe plum and cherry. Finishing with a long, complex aftertaste. (JL)" (12/1996)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this bottle of 2010 Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas (98JS, (96-97VN), 96RP). James Suckling: "Super rich and deeply ripe, this is packed with dark fruits as well as violets, pepper, flint and graphite-derived aromas amid notes of dark Belgian chocolate. The palate delivers a sweeping wave of perfectly ripe tannins and a seamless build through red and dark plums to black-cherry liqueur. Complex spicy elements and a profound sense of elegance with power resound. Finishes all velvety. A brilliant wine with a lot more to come here in terms of unfurling and filling out. Best from 2025 and a decade or two after that." (10/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2002 Piper-Heidsieck "Cuvée Rare" Brut Champagne (97JD, 97WS, 95DC, 95JG, 95RP, 94W&S, 94WE, 93JS, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Impeccably balanced and silky, with finely honed acidity shaping the expansive flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, lemon preserves and honey, revealing hints of Frangelico liqueur and smoked nut. Rich and vivid, with a lasting finish. *Highly Recommended* (AN) " (11/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1958 Krohn Colheita Port. Wine Spectator: "This is one of the very best '58s available. Medium ruby with a garnet edge, very delicate floral and grapy aromas, light- to medium-bodied, with lovely cherry flavors, great balance and a medium finish. (JS, Web Only-1989)"
Starting Bid: $245.00

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (93JS, 92VN, 91WS). James Suckling: "A spicy Bordeaux with berries and hints of currants. Full, super round and soft – surrounded by vanilla and blueberry pie. Round and lovely. Just coming around now. Delicious." (03/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1990 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The massive 1990 Howell Mountain exhibits huge tannin, but immense concentration. The richest Dunn Cabernet since the 1984s? At this early stage, it does not appear to be as super-concentrated as Dunn's wines from the early and mid-eighties. It is slightly more tannic. It does possess a tell-tale mineral, cassis, flowery nose, and a rich, full-bodied, dense, highly extracted, tannic personality. (RP)" (10/1993)

Bid on this bottle of 1993 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96CG, 91RP). Connoisseurs Guide: "It is often said that the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons of 1974 experienced an early and not very pretty fall from grace, and we have not only agreed with the idea but have championed the notion that 1973 was the longer aging vintage of the two despite receiving far less attention. Yet, here, in one of our highest rated wines is greatness by any measure. At 35 years old, this wine is surprisingly and rewardingly rich with intriguing notes of caramel and nicely developed black cherry fruit still sufficiently in evidence to be wonderfully enjoyable." (04/2010)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1994 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc) reveals toasty sweet oak in the nose, bombastic levels of black currant fruit and spice along with a hint of mint in the background. (RP)" (12/1998)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Kinsman Eades "Anjea Sleeping Lady" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95JS). James Suckling: "A solid and juicy wine with blackberries, blackcurrants and lavender undertones. Full-bodied, silky and beautiful. Layered. Horizontal and polished texture. " (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Alain Hudelot-Noellat Clos Vougeot Grand Cru. Clive Coates MW, The Wines of Burgundy: "This is definitely one of the top domaines in Burgundy, for when Alain Hudelot's top wines are on song, they are truly magnificent. … These are wines of great flair and concentration: full, opulent and multidimensional." (2008)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this half-bottle of 1997 Fesles Bonnezeaux (375mL) (92WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: "Concentration and balance mark this white, which is intense yet lively, sweet yet refreshing, with flavors of dried apple, vanilla, peach and honey that linger on the finish. Elegant and harmonious, it will continue to improve with age. (TM)" (06/1999)
Starting Bid: $20.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Château Boswell "Estate Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Chateau Boswell was founded in 1979 along the Napa Valley's Silverado Trail, under the guidance of Napa's foremost oenological consultant of the era, Andre Tschelistcheff. Their stated goal is to "capture California’s purest representation of terroir from Napa Valley’s storied Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard to Northern Santa Barbara’s spectacular Rita’s Crown, Radian and Bentrock Vineyards, Sonoma Coast's Sun Chase Vineyard, and then soaring to the glorious Russian River Valley for our Ritchie, Rued, and Dutton Sebastopol Vineyard designated Chardonnays." Surprisingly, Boswell doesn't attract too much attention, given the pedigree of their vineyard sources and the quality of the winemaking.
Starting Bid: $210.00

Bid on this bottle of 1967 Caillou, Sauternes in original wood. It is rare to find a very mature Classed Sauternes for such a price. This Chateau has been quietly producing classic stickies alongside its more famous neighbors. Oak aged, and very lightly filtered, this would be a tremendous birthday bottle.
Starting Bid: $135.00

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Domaine Groffier Bonnes Mares Grand Cru (94BH, 94RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Groffier 2005 Bonnes Mares smells of black raspberry and wild blueberry laced with sage and a hint of game, offers a rather Musigny-like combination of inner-mouth florality and refinement on the palate, and finishes with pure, sweet fruit, even silkier in texture and nearly as bright as the Hauts Doix, not to mention more intense and with a tactile finishing minerality, fineness of tannins and sheer length that (as well they should) go beyond the Premier Cru wines. (DS)" (04/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Château Boswell Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum Horizontal, including 1-bottle of 2014 Château Boswell "Estate Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) and 1-bottle of 2014 Chateau Boswell Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (93RP). Of the 2014 Chateau Boswell Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L),Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville comes from three vineyards, two of which are extremely well-known – the Tench Vineyard (made famous by Russell Bevan), the To Kalon Vineyard, and one I am not terribly familiar with, Two Dogs Vineyard – all of them in Oakville. The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, except for 15% Petit Verdot. Treated similarly to the other wines, it spent 17 months in 100% new French oak, shows an opaque purple color, notes of graphite, Pauillac-like cedar wood and pure crème de cassis. It is a masculine, full-bodied, powerful 2014 that is slightly more tannic than many wines from this vinta
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Château de Saint Cosme "Valbelle" Gigondas (97WS, 96RP, 95JD, 93VN). Wine Spectator: "This is a backward brute, with a wall of roasted bay leaf, cedar, alder and juniper guarding the core of black currant, fig, prune and plum notes. Heady and dense, but there's plenty of cut on the finish, with a grounding rod of charcoal and singed iron keeping everything upright and focused. (JM)" (10/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Domaine Jacques Prieur Musigny Grand Cru (93BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "(with thanks to David Pan). While there is some bricking present the center remains notably deep. The expressive and highly spiced nose is composed by full-on secondary aromas that include floral and tea hints but no sous bois. There is a beguiling texture to the notably rich, concentrated and powerful flavors that possess outstanding complexity on the lingering and well-balanced finish. This is really quite impressive in the context of a period where the Prieur wines are not what they are today. Note that this robust and powerful effort should continue to drink well for years to come." (04/2016)
Starting Bid: $410.00

Bid on this half-bottle of 1990 Domaine Jean Grivot Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru "Boudots" (375ml). Domaine Jean Grivot is among the great names in Burgundian wine. Étienne Grivot and his wife Marielle (Patrick Bize's sister) took over from Étienne’s father Jean Grivot in 1987. The Grivot family believes in generational change and in 2017, Étienne and Marielle’s daughter, Mathilde, took over for her parents. Mathilde brings a fresh approach while maintaining the longtime traditions of the Grivot family. The recently renovated winery and cellar is in Vosne-Romanée where most of the Grivot vineyards are located. The domaine has been assembled over several generations to its current size of 15.5 hectares and includes holdings in three grand crus: Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux, and Richebourg. Mathilde believes in getting quality first thanks to meticulous vineyard work throughout the year. The result of this hard work is healthy, ripe (both phenolic and sugar levels) and depth of concentration a
Starting Bid: $50.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Tasting Lot, including 2-bottles of 2017 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Maranges 1er Cru "La Fussière" ((89-91RP), (88-90VN)), 2-bottles of 2017 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Puligny-Montrachet ((88-91VN), (88-90RP)), and 2-bottles of 2017 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Referts" ((92-94RP), (90-92VN)). Of the 2017 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Referts",Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Referts is exceptional, wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, crushed rocks, pastry cream and chamomile. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with a satiny attack that segues into a tensile, tangy palate replete with abundant dry extract and concludes with a chalky finish. (WK)" (01/2019)

Bid on this half-bottle of 1989 Domaine Zind Humbrecht Tokay Pinot Gris "Clos Jebsal" VT (375ml). From the winery: "Winegrowing is a passion that has been passed down from father to son in the Humbrecht family since the 17th century. Domaine Zind Humbrecht today comprises of 40 hectares of vines, spread out over an array of different terroirs in the geological patchwork which is the Alsatian wine region and birthplace of our noble grape varieties. For the Clos Jesbal VT: Vineyard planted in 1983 Terroir: Grey marls and gypsum (Keuper). South facing, very steep slope."
Starting Bid: $30.00

Bid on this half-bottle of 2002 Dönnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Eiswein Nahe (375ml) (100JG, 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Riesling Eiswein Oberhauser Brucke is a grand slam home run for Donnhoff. It is so intense, so powerful, and so complex as to instill fear in the taster. Its apricot and peach cobbler aromas lead to a jellied core of cassis, raspberries, syrupy slate, and oodles of spices. It is simply amazing that a wine of this richness, ripeness, and depth can retain perfect definition, grip, and refinement. What is truly terrifying, however, is that Donnhoff produced a three-star Eiswein from the same vineyard in 2002, one he presumably considers better than this sublime nectar. Part of me is grateful that I was unable to taste it, however, as I have only 100 points with which to work. Bravo! Projected maturity: 2015-2040+. (PR)" (02/2004)
Starting Bid: $235.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine de la Vougeraie Vougeot 1er Cru "Le Clos Blanc de Vougeot" Blanc ((90-92RP), (89-91BH)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Vougeot 1er Cru le Clos Blanc has a clean and detailed, granite and smoke-scented bouquet that is austere at first, but finds its voice with aeration. The palate is rounded and harmonious on the entry with touches of tinned peach and nectarine, a keen line of acidity and nicely integrated oak just filling out the finish. Give it a year or two once in bottle - it will be a very fine Vougeot. (NM)" (12/2015)

Bid on this bottle of 1995 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (95WS, 94JG, 94RP, 94ST). Wine Spectator: "Subtle yet aromatic character of Indian spices, currants and dried cherries. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. Wonderful texture. Classy and structured. Long. This was wine of the year in 1998; well deserved. (JS, Web Only-2007)"

Bid on this half-bottle of 1990 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien (375ml) (94RP, 92ST, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Meaty, smoky, sweet berry and black currant characteristics intertwined with roasted herb, charcoal, new saddle leather, and bloody steak juice-like notes are found in this lush, full-bodied, opulent wine. (RP)" (06/2009)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Eisele Vineyard Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc (97JS). James Suckling: "Incredible subtlety to the nose with dried apples, limes and violets. Even lavender. Medium to full body, a fine texture and a solid finish. A serious white with precision and focus. Superb length. " (01/2018)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this half-bottle of 2001 Monchhof Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Eiswein (375ml) (94WS). Wine Spectator: "High-toned, with pear, floral and red berry aromas and flavors making for a distinctive Riesling eiswein. Elegant, yet concentrated, with a bracing structure keeping it all fresh. (BS)" (03/2003)
Starting Bid: $42.00

Bid on this half-bottle of 2002 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (375ml) (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 6-bottle lot of 2006 Sine Qua Non "A Shot in the Dark" & "In The Crosshairs" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah & Grenache Tasting Lot (OWC) (OWC), including 4-bottles of 2006 Sine Qua Non "A Shot in the Dark" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (100RP, 98WS, 96ST, 95JS) and 2-bottles of 2006 Sine Qua Non "In The Crosshairs" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (100JD, 100RP, 97WS, 96JS, 96ST). Of the 2006 Sine Qua Non "A Shot in the Dark" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "A Shot in the Dark is composed of 96.5% Syrah and 3.5% Viognier from the 11 Confessions Vineyard in the cool Santa Rita Hills. Performing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this prodigious red exhibits incredibly velvety tannins, a seamless style, and no noticeable oak (which is remarkable given the fact it spent 32 months in barrel). Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blueberry pie, blackberries, soy, Asian spices, and hints of forest floor and charcoal, this is a complex, rich, seamle

Bid on this magnum of 2016 Realm "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (100JD, 98JS, 97RP, 96WE, 95DC). Jeb Dunnuck: "An incredible wine that tops out on my scale, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon comes from one of the great terroirs of the world and delivers everything you could want from a Napa Cabernet! Off-the-hook notes of blackcurrants, blueberries, black cherries, violets, plums, smoke tobacco and incense all soar from the glass. It’s a massive wine, yet stays perfectly balanced and pure on the palate, with loads of tannins, no hard edges, and a blockbuster finish. It’s undeniably about as sexy as it gets, yet stays graceful and light, with an ethereal personality. Don’t miss it." (01/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 2005 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (99RP, (94-97ST), 95VN, 95WS, 94JS, 94W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the world’s great wines and profound expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. This wine spends more than 30 months in 100% new oak, and, year in year out, has been one of the most singular and profound examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. It seems Shafer began to ratchet up performance during the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st century has provided a treasure trove of either perfect or nearly perfect wines, including the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007 and more recently the 2010, 2012 and, in all likelihood, the 2013. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select (about 2,000 cases produced) is another one of those 'wow' wines, but it does it with a sort of measured richness and restraint and extraordinary subtle character, like the Gary Cooper of Napa Cab

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Outpost "True Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The limited-production 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon True Vineyard (475 cases) is also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 90% new French oak. This is an amazing 2014 and one of the few perfect wines that I could find while tasting at the top addresses in Northern California. Blue/purple in color, with extraordinarily intense floral notes intermixed with blueberry, blackberry, crushed charcoal and camphor, the wine hits the palate with a spectacular display of glycerin, fruit, sweet tannin, adequate acidity, and wonderful equilibrium and purity. The finish was close to a minute. This wine is irresistible, although it is certainly capable of lasting three decades or more. Kudos to the Dotzlers and Thomas Rivers Brown for this magnificent achievement! (RP)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $670.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Bevan "Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend ((97-100RP), 97JD, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard (a barrel sample) gives up profoundly ripe, expressive black berry and cassis scents with underlying chocolate box and spice cake hints plus wafts of roses and dried herbs. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and full on full throttle when it comes to flavors, it has a firm, fine-grained backbone and an epically long finish. (LPB)" (12/2017)

Bid on this magnum of 2007 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L) (100JD, 100RP, 98WS, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Utter perfection, and one of the most profound Rhone Ranger wines I have ever tasted. As with many prodigious wines, the extraordinary freshness, purity, equilibrium, and singularity of this effort is breathtaking. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary, incredibly pure, all enveloping, intense, sweet nose of black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers, spice box, and pepper. Full-bodied with not a hard edge to be found, it is stunningly concentrated with unreal purity, a voluptuous texture, and remarkable freshness for a wine of such power, depth, and concentration. (RP)" (08/2009)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" (94VN). Vinous: "The 2010 Meursault Charmes is super-impressive. It boasts tons of richness and power, yet all of those elements are buffered by the wine's structure and acidity. Simply put, everything is in the right place. There is an element of pure unbridled energy and sheer tension that gives the Charmes its explosiveness and compelling personality. This is a great showing. I can't wait to taste the Charmes in another year or two. (AG)" (08/2012)
Starting Bid: $705.00

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Domaine du Comte Liger Belair Echezeaux Grand Cru (93BH, 93ST, 93WE). Wine Enthusiast: "A firm and tannic wine initially, but then it opens out with such sweet, generous fruits and flavors of strawberries and pepper. The texture is dense, a vertical pile of ripe tannins and richness. (RV)" (12/2008)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine St.-Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud (100RP, 99WS, 97JD, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An incredible wine that I thought was pure perfection on release, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud still stays at the top of my hierarchy today. The most masculine, powerful and concentrated of the trio, it possesses massive amounts of fruit to go with darker-styled fruits, pan drippings, charred steak and roasted herbs. It has everything you could want in a Southern Rhone. (JD)" (08/2014)

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. Readers lucky enough to own bottles can look
Starting Bid: $1,600.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1989 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90WS). Wine Spectator: "Wonderful Martha's. Chocolate-covered cherry with mint character, well focused; not the depth or extra dimensions of a great year, but quite complete on its own terms. (JL)" (08/1999)
Starting Bid: $395.00

Bid on this bottle of 1979 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95DC, 93VN, 91WS, 90RP). Decanter: "At 40 years old, the colour here is still exceptionally dark, surprisingly so. On the palate, the more expected signs of evolution are certainly there in the form of incense, soft truffle and forest floor notes, but there is a richness to the spine, and this was one of the most enjoyable wines of the tasting. It held up over five hours in the glass, gaining in layers. Remarkable when you think this was the first ever vintage, made in a far more classic Bordeaux-type winemaking style than would be typical today, with just 10 days of skin contact to extract colour and tannins. Helped by the fact that 1979 was a perfect growing season until rains arrived in September during harvest. A clear sign that something special was underway. (JA)" (09/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Lokoya Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (OWC - 99RP, 98JD, 93VN) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the micro-terroir of the W. S. Keyes Vineyard on Howell Mountain, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is pushing perfection. Its incredibly opaque color is followed by notes of lead pencil shavings, mulberry, blackberry and dark raspberry fruit, some background oak and minerality, and profound richness in a full-bodied, multi-dimensional style. It is gorgeously ripe, and sexy already, with a lush and voluptuous texture. (RP)" (10/2016)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerhouse, opaque purple/blue-colored 1996 Les Pavots is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. The nose offers up blackberry, licorice, cassis, and pain grille aromas. The superb extract, well-defined personality, and smoky, licorice, Asian spice, and blackberry flavors provide a thrilling tasting experience. It was bottled with neither fining nor filtration. There are approximately 2,800 cases of this fabulous effort. Anticipated maturity: now-2025. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $480.00

Bid on this 3L-bottle of 2007 Staglin "INEO" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (3L) (96WE, 96WS, 95RP). Wine Enthusiast: "Here's a young, strong, vigorous wine that needs cellar time. It's absolutely dry, and hits the palate with numbing tannins. But the blackberry, cassis and cedar flavors are intense and concentrated. Earns its high score by the wonderful combination of elegance and potency. *Cellar Selection*" (06/2011)

Bid on this bottle of 1990 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (100JD, 100RP, 98JS, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 La Chapelle is the sexy and opulent. I had the 1990 at the Jaboulet tasting, and again out of a double magnum three months ago. On both occasions it was spectacular, clearly meriting a three-digit score. The modern day equivalent of the 1961, it deserves all the attention it has garnered. The color remains an opaque purple, with only a slight pink at the edge. Spectacular aromatics offer up aromas of incense, smoke, blackberry fruit, cassis, barbecue spice, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. As it sits in the glass, additional nuances of pepper and grilled steak emerge. There is extraordinary freshness for such a mammoth wine in addition to abundant tannin, an amazing 60-second finish, and a level of glycerin and thick, fleshy texture that have to be tasted to be believed. Despite its youthfulness, the 1990 La Chapelle is lovely to drink, alth

Bid on this bottle of 2016 MacDonald Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 97VN, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a relatively gravelly site compared to other parts of the To Kalon vineyard. Most of the fruit comes from vines aged 45 to 65 years old, with a little fruit coming from the younger section of 20-year-old vines. It was made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and no press wines were used, in order to maintain tannin quality. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant black cherries, warm cassis, blueberry compote and chocolate box notes with touches of aged meat, yeast extract, chargrill and sautéed herbs with hints of pain grille and pencil lead. Full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise, with beautifully balanced, crushed black fruits and firm, very finely grained tannins plus a lovely backbone of seamless freshness, finishing epically long and savory with a slight mineral kick to the finish.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Maybach Family "Amoenus" Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 97JD).

Full-bodied, richly fruited and packed with vivacious black fruit and savory layers, it has lovely, ripe, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing with great persistence. 240 cases produced.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1980 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (91VN). Vinous: "Full healthy red with an amber rim. Expressive scents of redcurrant, plum and milk chocolate show some nutty oak tones but also something distinctly fresh. Silky, rich and concentrated but juicy and delineated as well, boasting building intensity on the back half. Still full of life, with some remaining tannins that may yet be resolved. I have liked this vintage of Georges de Latour since the start. According to Trevor Durling, this 1980 was still raised entirely in American barrels but he noted that this vintage may have gotten a small percentage of new barrels and a slightly shorter élevage than in earlier years.
