Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2002 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100RP, 96CG, 96WS, 93W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 boasts an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, violets, blackberries, creme de cassis and hints of charcoal and barbecue in addition to a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel that builds incrementally with great purity, staggering fruit concentration, and a long, velvety, 50+-second finish. This prodigious effort should continue to drink well for 20+ years. (RP)" (11/2013)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1976 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. According to the Wine Spectator's California Wine book: "Mature, but holding its ripe, supple plum and black cherry flavors."

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1982-1983 Groth Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical, including 2-bottles of 1982 Groth Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 2-bottles of 1983 Groth Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the 1982 Groth Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,The Cabernet and Merlot grapes selected for this wine came from Groth's two vineyard locations, the Oakcross Vineyard in Oakville and the Hillview Vineyard just south of Yountville. The grapes were hand picked in the middle of October as they reached maturity. The timing was perfect, and the early rain that characterized 1982 had no effect on the fruit. 85% Cabernet Cauvignon and 15% Merlot, with just 12.5% alcohol! Remember, this was when California vintners were going for elegance and finesse, not heft!
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this magnum of 1978 Talbot, St-Julien (1.5L) (90VN). Vinous: "The 1978 Talbot is a vintage that has escaped my palate until now. At four decades it has an attractive animally, dried-blood and sous-bois tinged nose that you could almost mistake for an old Rhône! The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, touches of black pepper and tobacco with an “old school,” light but fresh finish. It is a very classic old Saint-Julien but fair dues – this Talbot seems to be holding up well still giving pleasure. (NM)" (08/2018)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Cayuse "En Chamberlin Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (94WS, 92RP, 92ST). Wine Spectator: "Plush and dense with exotic spice and stone overtones to the plum and cherry flavors, a mouthfilling red that coats the palate with soft, silky tannins and then drenches it with flavor. The finish sails on and on. *Highly Recommended* (HS)" (06/2006)

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)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015-2016 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay Vertical, including 1-bottle of 2015 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay (95CG, 95WE, 94RP, 93VN, 92WS) and 2-bottles of 2016 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay (95VN, 94JD, 94RP). Of the 2015 Kistler "Hudson Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay,Wine Enthusiast writes: "From one of the older blocks of the famous vineyard, once looked after by this winemaker, this wine is beautifully golden in color with a reduced, salty nose of caramelized pretzel. Robustly built, it shows fleshy, lush layers of honey and tropical richness. (VB)" (07/2018)

Bid on this 8-half-bottle lot of 1996 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Straw-gold. Marzipan, honey and toasted hazelnut on the nose. Moderately viscous and currently rather oaky. Has an impressively chewy texture but is not yet displaying its personality. Finishes with some youthful harshness." (07/1999)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this bottle of 1989 Krug "Clos de Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (96RP, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 Clos du Mesnil, from a warmer year, makes for a fascinating contrast to the cool inward 1988. It is a bigger, fatter wine that caresses the palate with layers of expansive, generous fruit. Sweet scents of caramel, hazelnuts and honey add complexity to the fruit. Despite its burnished, textured fruit, the 1989 remains light on its feet and superbly well-balanced but it is at, or close to, peak. To put things in perspective, the 1989 was harvested at the beginning of September -- the 7th and 8th to be exact -- while the 1988 was harvested between September 30th and October 2nd. (AG)" (07/2011)
Starting Bid: $1,280.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1999 Giuseppe Mascarello "Monprivato" Barolo (97VN, 93JG, 93ST, 92RP). Vinous: "The 1999 Barolo Monprivato is once again stellar. In this tasting, it is the wine's flamboyant fruit and super-expressive aromatics that jump from the glass. Sweet red cherries, pomegranate, hard candy, rose petals and mint meld together as this generous, resonant Barolo shows off its pure and total sense of majesty. Spices and a hint of blood orange develop in a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors. In 1999, Monprivato is just about as good as it gets. Mauro Mascarello did not bottle his Riserva Ca' d'Morissio in 1999; instead all the best fruit was blended into the Monprivato. Today, the 1999 is utterly thrilling. It's as simple as that. (AG)" (08/2014)

Bid on this bottle of 2006 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is big, dark and juicy. There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish. Elements of fleshiness give the impression the 2006 might drink well relatively early, until the massive tannins set in. Floral notes add freshness on the finish. This is another fabulous wine from Randy Dunn. (AG)" (12/2011)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1994 & 1997 Fonseca Vintage Port Magnum Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 1994 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L) (100WS, 97RP, 96DC) and 1-bottle of 1997 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L) (93DC, 93RP, 93ST, 91WS). Of the 1994 Fonseca Vintage Port (1.5L),Wine Spectator writes: "Hold on to your hat. This is the best Fonseca since 1977, and it's probably even better than that classic vintage--more like the breathtaking 1948. Mind-blowing, with masses of color, aroma and fruit flavor. Smells like fermenting berries, boasting loads of crushed grape, violet and berry character. Big, full-bodied and very sweet, with tons of tannins and a sweet finish. Tannic and huge, it's a long-term, great Port. *#1 Wine of the Year 1997, Collectibles* (JS)" (04/1997)

Bid on this half-bottle of 1998 Sine Qua Non "El Corazon" California Rose (375ml).
Starting Bid: $1,500.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2013 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 99JS, 98JD, 98RP, 98WE, 97VN, 94WS) in original wood. 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. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2016 Domaine Pichat "Les Grandes Places" Côte-Rôtie (93JD, 93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fermented with the stems, the medium to full-bodied 2016 Cote Rotie Les Grandes Places reflects that to some extent in its complex aromas of bay leaf, mint, green olives and raspberries. Like the other 2016s from Pichat, it's firm and tannic, yet it seems to have the requisite concentration to age well. Drink 2022-2030. (JC)" (10/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Bevan "Bab's Cuvée Showket Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Bab’s Cuvee Showket Vineyard shows quite a bit more freshness than the Julie’s Cuvee. Dark red fruit, mineral flowers and spices flow effortlessly from this focused, vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon. The intensity of the fruit flows through beautifully to the fleshy, expressive finish. Bab’s Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 7) aged in 100% new French oak barrels, 60% Darnajou and 40% Taransaud, a different mix of coopers than Bevan uses for Julie’s Cuvee, which is also clone 7 Cabernet from Showket Vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (12/2011)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99WE, 97RP, 96ST, 94WS). Wine Enthusiast: "The flagship wine from Quilceda Creek offers exotic scents of plum, cassis, loam, coffee and pine sap, a rich and evocative blend. The wine delivers all that is promised and more; it is deep and dense with flavor, polished, focused and persistent. Vanilla, espresso, fine tannins, luscious acids and cascading fruits. *Editors' Choice* (PG)" (02/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (99JD, 99RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky purple colored, the nose of the 2016 Materium Cabernet Sauvignon takes off and absolutely soars with incredible blackberry pie, warm blackcurrants, wild blueberries and kirsch scents plus underlying vanilla pod, milk chocolate, espresso and lavender suggestions. The palate is opulently rich and full-bodied, yet it has bold freshness and exquisitely fine-grained tannins supporting layer upon layer of perfumed fruit, finishing very long. (LPB)" (07/2019)
Starting Bid: $200.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Grace Family Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Not unexpectedly, this is one of the most stunning wines of my 1985 tastings. The wine possesses all the elements of great Cabernet Sauvignon - a sensationally opaque purple color, a huge, smoky, vanillin, wonderfully ripe cassis-scented nose that leaps from the glass, layers of lavishly rich, opulent, velvety-textured Cabernet fruit, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and adequate acidity for focus. This gorgeously rich, yet still young, unevolved, tasty Cabernet Sauvignon has years of evolution ahead. (RP)" (04/1995)
Starting Bid: $390.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2004 Poggio il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino (96WS, 91WE). Wine Spectator: "Dried dark fruit on the nose, verging on date and prune. Full-bodied, with a dense palate of ripe fruit and supersilky tannins. This is a deep and beautiful red, delivering lots of subtle character. Fascinating. One of the undiscovered treasures of the vintage. Best after 2011. *Ranked #11, Top 100 Wines of 2009* (JS)" (04/2009)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Sloan Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97RP, 96VN, 95ST, 94JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Proprietary Red is very deep garnet colored with a hint of purple. It offers up wonderfully bold, expressive notes of crème de cassis, black cherry compote and mincemeat pie with wafts of bay leaves, incense, Chinese five spice and hoisin plus wafts of chargrill and yeast extract. Full-bodied, rich and opulent, the palate is laden with layer upon layer of exotic spice-laced black fruits with a firm yet plush frame and very long finish with some licorice notes coming through. (LPB)" (12/2019)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1989 Léoville Barton, St-Julien (92WS, 90RP). Wine Spectator: "A delicious, well-structured Bordeaux, with plenty of ripe fruit, beautiful berry, green tobacco and cherry character. Full-bodied, adding velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. (JS)" (05/1999)
Starting Bid: $440.00

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Peter Michael "Belle Côte" Knights Valley Chardonnay (99RP, 95JS, 94WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nearly perfect 2012 Chardonnay Belle Côte boasts an amazing perfume of pineapple marmalade, tangerine oil, wet rocks and citrus blossoms. This full-bodied, stunning Chardonnay has a creamy texture as well as fabulous underlying mineral characteristics. One of the great wines of the vintage, this amazing Chardonnay can be enjoyed over the next decade or more. (RP)" (12/2014)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2003 Leonetti Columbia Valley Merlot (95RP, 93WE, 90ST, 90W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Though I was not a fan of the 2002, I was enraptured by the 2003 Merlot. Chocolate, cassis liqueur, cherries jubilee, spices, and violets are found in its magnificent aromatics. Aged in 80% new oak (of which 80% is French and the balance Pennsylvanian), this concentrated gem slathers the palate with black raspberries, spices, copious quantities of cherries, and blackberries that envelope its significant tannin. (PR)" (04/2006)

Bid on this bottle of 2003 Lokoya Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect effort is the 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Keyes Vineyard from Howell Mountain. There are 524 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Its extraordinary perfume of graphite, spring flowers and creme de cassis is followed by a blockbuster red-fruited palate displaying a velvety texture, silky tannins and a 60-second finish. It is unquestionably the most profound wine I have ever tasted from Howell Mountain. Some secondary nuances are apparent, but the wine still seems like an adolescent. It is capable of another 15 years of cellaring. (RP)" (06/2013)
Starting Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2014 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (93RP, 93WS, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another sensational appellation release is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from an early vintage that was over two weeks ahead of average, it has tons of spice, black raspberry, currants and blackberry characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and no shortage of depth or length. Already impossible to resist, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (09/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2016 Andremily California Mourvèdre ((97-99JD), 99RP, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Mourvèdre is composed of 89% Mourvedre, 9% Syrah and 2% Viognier coming from the Alta Mesa Vineyard in Santa Barbara County and Larner Vineyard in Ballard Canyon. Seventy percent whole cluster was employed, and the wine was aged for 21 months in French barriques, 50% new. Deep purple-black colored, it slips out of the glass with gorgeous fragrant earth, truffles and garrigue scents over a blackberry preserves and baked plums core plus nuances of chargrill and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and seductively generous in the mouth, it has beautifully plush, velvety tannins matched by fantastic freshness, finishing long and savory. Only 210 cases and 'a few' magnums were produced. (LPB) " (06/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Philip Togni Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (97VN, 96RP, 95JG). Vinous: "Togni's 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate opens with extraordinary aromatics. The sweet tobacco, gravel, smoke, leather and spice notes that have developed in bottle are utterly captivating. Rich, deep and inviting, the 1996 simply has it all. With time, the 1996 has developed into a magnificent Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (12/2016)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1971 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served at the property, it has been some ten years since I last tasted this off-vintage First Growth. At 42-years of age, is offers a simple bouquet of wild hedgerow, sous-bois and a musty, second-hand cigar box. The palate is medium-bodied with light grainy tannins and a pleasing soft texture. Strangely, it feels more aligned to a merlot-dominated wine rather than a Cabernet at the finish. This bottle of perfect provenance was sound, but I suspect that others will be in decline. Drink now. (NM, Wine Journal)" (11/2012)
Starting Bid: $1,140.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 93ST, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040. (RP)" (01/2000)

Bid on this magnum of 2010 Troplong Mondot, St-Emilion (1.5L) (99RP, 95ST, 94JS, 94WS, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky, bluish/black/purple, with notes of spring flowers, licorice, camphor, graphite, and a boatload of blueberry, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, this is a powerful, full-bodied Troplong Mondot. All the building components of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol are judiciously and impressively integrated. It is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc made by Christine Valette and her husband Xavier Pariente with the consultancy help of Michel Rolland. I'm not sure what the heady alcohol level is in Troplong Mondot in 2010 (it certainly must be in the 15%+ range), but it is well-concealed behind the extravagant, richness, full-bodied power, and pure nobility of this majestic wine. Forget this for 5-7 years and drink it over the following three decades. (RP)" (02/2013)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1999 Lisini "Ugolaia" Brunello di Montalcino (93WS, 92WE, 91VN). Wine Spectator: "Sweet plum and berry aromas follow through to a full body, with ripe, pretty fruit, silky tannins and a round, juicy finish. Still a little chewy. Could use a year or two more of bottle age. (JS, Web Only-2010)"

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1983 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (94DC, 94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Las-Cases off-line at The Square. Many years have passed since I last tasted the ’83 Las-Cases. It is reticent at first, like and old tongue-tied friend entering the room, then it blossoms with aeration offering scents of leather, chestnut, brambly black fruit and freshly rolled tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with melted red-berry fruits, firm tannins and superb balance. Hints of bell pepper and sandalwood furnish the long, harmonious finish. This is a wonderful wine for the vintage that is drinking perfectly now. (NM)" (07/2011)
Starting Bid: $675.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Peter Michael "Point Rouge" Knights Valley Chardonnay (100RP, 94VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chardonnay Point Rouge is pure pedigree and class, showing all the elegance and seamlessness of a truly top-tier Chardonnay. Opening with tightly furled citrus and spiced apple notes over salty almond, cashew, allspice, anise and ginger, plus wafts of orange blossom and crushed rocks, the medium-bodied palate is wonderfully well poised, with seamless flavor layers intermingled with just enough freshness, finishing long and beautifully perfumed. Wow. 292 cases were made. (LPB)" (10/2017)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Maybach "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (100JD, 100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Materium, represents 560 cases and achieved 14.8% alcohol after aging in 90% new Taransaud and Darnajou casks. Remarkably, the wine matches the perfect 2013, with extraordinary fragrance of blueberry, blackberry, forest floor, truffle, spring flowers and background barbecue smoke followed by a thick, unctuously textured, juicy, but incredibly well-balanced, intense wine. This is built like a skyscraper with enormous quantities of blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, well-integrated acidity and sweet, gentle tannins. This is an extraordinary effort from Maybach that can be drunk now or cellared for up to 30 or more years. (RP)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $765.00

Bid on this bottle of 2009 Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 92VN, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very typical wine from this appellation. Spices, grilled herbs and new leather add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially admire the finesse and fabulous overall sense of harmony here. This is a highly representative Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG)" (12/2011)

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 4-bottle lot of 1998 Chimney Rock Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon. According to the Wine Spectator: "Medium-weight, with spice, herb, currant and cedary oak flavors that are pleasant enough..." (10/01)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2015 Cayuse "Armada Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (97JD, 97JS, 97RP, 94WE, 91VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Syrah Armada Vineyard is superb, wafting from the glass with a complex and savory bouquet of dark chocolate, peat, candied violets, plums and marinading meat. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, rich and layered, with a deep core of sapid fruit framed by powdery, fine-grained tannins and concluding with a saline finish. Seamlessly integrated and elegant, the 2015 was harvested on September 9 and fermented with 60% to 70% whole clusters, finishing with 13.7% natural alcohol. It was matured in foudres and demi-muids, seeing 10% new oak and—as has been the case since 2011—no smaller cooperage. (WK)" (06/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1990 l'Evangile, Pomerol (95WS, 94DC, 93RP, 93ST, 92JG). Wine Spectator: "Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry, chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish. Tight, muscular and concentrated. Needs time. (JS)" (08/2000)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Staglin "25th Anniversary Selection" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (96RP, 96WE, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sensational 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (their 25th anniversary selection) may be the best wine Staglin has ever made. Tasting like a classic Margaux or St.-Julien, it offers up notes of new saddle leather, cedar, spice box, black currants, black cherries and hints of graphite and wood. This full-bodied, intense 2007 is still extremely young, but it is beautifully proportioned with a seamless integration of all the component parts. A brilliant effort, it admirably reflects its appellation. Moreover, it should drink beautifully over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2010)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2013 Kistler "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay (95RP, 93VN, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard has fabulous fruit concentration, great acidity, discreet use of oak as well as notes of white peach and honeysuckle, currants and a touch of quince. Drink it over the next 4-6 years. The single-vineyard wines all represent much smaller quantities of wine. There have been several noticeable changes in the Kistler wines over the last few years, as they are certainly picking the Pinot Noir at an earlier date and going for less extraction, more fragrance and delicacy. The Chardonnays are still powerful wines but they have backed off the new oak to about 40%. (RP)" (03/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 95WE, 93ST, 91JS, 91VN, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive. The 2007 should evolve for 20-25 years. (RP) 95+" (12/2009)

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 1997 Baumard Coteaux du Layon "Cuvée du Paon" (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bergamot and red fruit-scented 1997 Coteaux du Layon Cuvee le Paon exhibits a broad, sweet character filled with Cynar (an Italian artichoke liqueur), apricots, candied lemons, and tangy limes. It is beautifully rendered, lush, velvety, and flavorful. (PR)" (08/1999)
Starting Bid: $250.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1997 Suduiraut, Sauternes (92JG, 92ST, 90WS). John Gilman: "The 1997 Suduiraut has reached a really lovely plateau in its evolution and is drinking splendidly at age nineteen. The bouquet is deep, pure and shows lovely secondary layers of complexity in its mélange of honey, fresh apricot, oranges, crème brulée, soil tones and a gentle framing of buttery oak. With air distinctive notes of clove and marmalade blossomed as well on the nose. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and focused, with a fine core of fruit, lovely, zesty acidity and impressive length and grip on the à point finish. Just a lovely, classic vintage of Suduiraut that is just reaching its apogee, but which will continue to drink splendidly for at least a couple of decades. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 & 2011 Napa Valley Red Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2009 Patel Napa Valley Red Wine (92VN) and 1-bottle of 2011 Lancaster Estate Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the 2009 Patel Napa Valley Red Wine,Vinous writes: "The 2009 Red Wine is quite a bit different from the 2010 in that it has a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, less Malbec and no Petit Verdot. Grilled herbs, smoke, tobacco and incense lead to an expressive core of fruit as this heady, sensual wine opens up in the glass. The 2009 is a bit more structured and less overly fruit driven than the 2010. It, too, could use another few years in bottle. I really like the way the wine comes together beautifully in the glass. The blend is 70% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Malbec. (AG)" (12/2012)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Domaine du Clos de Tart Clos de Tart Grand Cru ((96-98VN), (93-95RP), (91-94BH)). Vinous: "The 2017 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was matured in around 80% new oak, the barrels toasted chauff blonde. Jacques Desvauges mentioned that the wine needed oxygen ingress during maturation that only new oak can give. I tasted the component parts (as usual) as well as the blend. This has a very detailed, delineated bouquet offering mainly black fruit mixed with sous-bois, tobacco, clove and bay leaf, the typicité of the appellation showing through nicely. It feels very succinct and yet so fresh. The palate is beautifully balanced on the entry with a killer line of acidity. Pure black cherry fruit is joined by bilberry, hints of black olive and a marine/oyster shell tincture that comes through quite strongly toward the persistent, saline finish, which fans out with confidence. This is a brilliant follow-up to the benchmark 2016 by Jacques Desvauges and his team. (NM)" (0
