|502. Two Bottles of Opus One
•Opus One Bordeaux red blend from Napa Valley 2002
•Opus One Bordeaux red blend from Napa Valley 2003
Opus One was founded in 1979 when two of the world’s most famous wine families began producing wine from their joint venture in Napa. Robert Mondavi and the Baron Philippe Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild became friends back in 1970. Less than a decade later, using parcels from Mondavi’s To Kaylon vineyards they created a wine that became an instant hit with wine lovers in American and in Europe.
|503. Rare 1994 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
Courtesy of Martin Gold
Groth Vineyards is located in the Oakville Appellation in Napa Valley.
94 points Wine Spectator: “Dark, rich and plush, with layers of mocha, coffee, currant and plum flavors that are complex and concentrated, finishing with ripe, fleshy tannins and long, complex aftertaste. A very impressive wine that’s youthful and impeccably balanced.”
Later Reserve 3 liter format bottles with a lower Wine Spectator rating are on the market now for more than $750. It is doubtful this bottle could even be found outside of a private collection. A truly special offering.
Restrictions: Must reach reserve price
|504. Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection
Courtesy of James and Jean Prusko
CAYMUS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Selection 2008
Beautifully crafted, rich, intense and powerful, yet supple, graceful and
polished, offering a generous core of spicy blackberry, black licorice, wild
berry and light cedary notes. Full-bodied and expressive, this is both
approachable now and sure to improve for several years. Drink now through 2020. 15,618 cases made.
|505. 2004 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
Polished but assertive, this wine delivers its delicious impact in a velvet glove. The wine’s deep, dark color signals the density of its flavors and opulent texture. In the nose, ripe black fruit aromas merge with hints of cedar, black licorice and a pinch of nutmeg and clove. In the mouth, the wine has a silky entry. Dense, fleshy flavors of blackberry, black plum and cassis envelop the mid-palate, enhanced by elegantly powerful tannins. The rich finish lasts forever. A freshly youthful wine with the confident authority that comes from excellent vineyard sources and superlative winemaking.
|601. Original Oil Painting of CCNW
Courtesy of Christopher Magidini
Christopher Magadini’s style could be called Contemporary Impressionism although the pastoral quality of his work recalls the naturalism of 19th Century American Landscape Painting. In all of his oils, Mr. Magadini takes full advantage of the medium’s wonderful qualities. No matter the size, 4”x 6” up to 30” by 40”, this work exhibits a rich painterly surface enhanced by masterful brushwork. His stated goal of “capturing the illusion of space and form while retaining a beautiful and interesting surface” is revealed in these paintings.
