  • #1: Only a Great Wine Auction Begins with Beer

    __________________________________________________ Fetish Beer (12 Bottles)

    Fetish Brewing Company is Lancasters smallest brewery. Weve

    spent the last three years making incredibly small batches of

    interesting beers and sharing them amongst a dedicated community

    of local beer drinkers and every now and then we sell a few in stores,

    too. Every beer we make we make by hand, and weve made these

    beers -- four Pumpkin Fetishes, four Kolsch Fetishes, and four

    Belgian Pale Ale Fetishes -- by hand just for you.

    Donated by Linda and Doug Weidman 12 Bottles; Value: $100

    #2: Three Pinots and a Burgundy __________________________________________________ Bergstrom Wines Gregory Ranch Oregon Pinot Noir 2012

    An early release from the 2012 vintage, it explodes from the glass

    with richly scented cherry fruit limned with citrus and floral highlights.

    As good as it is, and already drinking beautifully, it has the structure

    and complexity to reward further aging. Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast

    Ponzi Vineyards Oregon Pinot Noir Reserve 2010 Notes of coffee, molasses and tobacco, fresh blackberry and

    sandalwood define this nose. The sweet mouth of lavender, dark

    spiced cherry and caramel lead to a long finish of present tannin.

    Drink now through 2018. 1,050 cases made. Rated 92 points by

    Wine Spectator

  • Domaine Drouhin Laurene Oregon Pinot Noir 2008 Medium garnet color in the glass. Powerfully aromatic with a perfume

    of fresh cherry tart and red berry mash, with hints of coffee and

    sandalwood. Delicious core of dark red fruits that are mouth-filling

    and rich supported by moderate refined tannins and oak-driven

    mocha java flavor. Relatively elegant for a 2008 vintage Oregon Pinot

    Noir and more approachable than many. Rated 93 by Stephen

    Tanzer

    All Donated by Dr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Cope Bouchard Pere & Fils Greves Vignes de L'Enfant Jesus, Beaune

    Premier Cru

    A bit masculine. Beautiful flower driven nose, red fruits, cherry, sap

    and a hint of mint. Excellent concentration, good acidity and nice

    length. Rated 93 by Burghound

    Donated by William Shaughnessy 4 Bottles; Value: $278

    #3: Chuck Wagners Pride and Joy

    __________________________________________________

    Caymus Special Selections 1998 and 2000 Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons a Napa

    Valley and the venerable Special Selection. Both Cabernet

    bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved

    through hang time a technique which chances the loss of crop if

    early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to hang on the vine unusually

    long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins

    of the grapes. Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the

    Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the

    vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Both the Napa

    Valley and the Special Selection Cabernets are produced under

    the winemaking hand of Chuck Wagner.

    2 Bottles; Value: $275

  • #4: Brilliant Brunellos

    Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino 1997

    A powerful blackberry, dark chocolate, cinnamon and creamy vanilla

    aroma with flavors of black fruits with toasted oak and whispers of

    licorice. Bold and plush body style with creaminess. Rated 90 by

    Robert Parker

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino 2001

    Brawny and bold with impeccable depth and balance. Dark fudge,

    forest berry and coffee take center stage with menthol coolness,

    caramel and marzipan from the chorus line. A deeply satisfying and

    plush wine with solid tannins and chewy concentration that is both

    mysterious and inviting. Rated 93 by Wine Spectator

    Both Donated by Barry and Jane Haimes

    2 half cases (six each); Value: $774

    #5: A Pair of Double Magnums _________________________________________________ The Prisoner Wine Company "The Prisoner" Meritage 3L There are 20,000 cases of the 2012 The Prisoner, which is an interesting blend of 46% Zinfandel, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon,18% Petite Sirah, 12% Syrah, and a small amount of Charbono. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a big, peppery, meaty, Rhone-like bouquet with hints of bay leaf, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants and sweet jammy cherries. Medium to full-bodied & explosively fruity, this is a lovely, hedonistic, seriously endowed red to drink over the next 3-4 years. Rated 90 by Wine Spectator

    Matanzas Creek Merlot 2011 This merlot, blended with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, is oaky and fairly hot with high alcohol. But its delicious with flavors of blackberry and cherry jam, milk chocolate and anise. A fine grilled steak will do it justice. This review is for the 2010 vintage. Both Donated by Paul Smith-Woodland Hills Wine Company

    2 Bottles; Value: $270

    #7: 1988 Sauternes Horizontal

    __________________________________________________

    1988 was a wonderful growing season for the white grapes of the Sauternes region. It was characterized by dry, warm fall temperatures and perfect conditions for botrytis allowing a late harvest in November. It is considered, along with 1937, to be one of the great classical vintages of the last century and has reached its plateau of maturity. The following represent some of the best performers from that vintage in the desirable 375 ml format. All numerical ratings by Robert Parker.

  • Chteau Climens 1988 Rated 96 Chteau Suduiraut 1988 Rated 90 Chteau Rieussec 1988 Rated 94 Chteau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 1988 Rated 95 Chteau Raymond-Lafon 1988 Rated 94 Chteau Guiraud 1988 Rated 91 Donated by Diane and Scott Stieber 6-375ml bottles; Value: $300

    #11: Two 86 Bordeaux Beauties

    __________________________________________________

    1986 Gruaud Larose, St-Julien

    Still tasting as if it were only 7-8 years of age, the dense, garnet/purple-colored 1986 Gruaud-Larose is evolving at a glacier pace. The wine still has mammoth structure, tremendous reserves of fruit and concentration, and a finish that lasts close to a minute. The wine is massive, very impressively constituted, with s
