An exclusive collection of ultra-rare big bottles from three of Napa’s most highly acclaimed vintners.

Peter Michael Cabernet Sauvignon Au Paradis 2016 Magnum - 99 JD 
“The 2016 Au Paradis is borderline perfection in a glass and shows the incredible quality both of this estate and the vintage. Tons of blackcurrants, smoked tobacco, savory spice, dried earth, and graphite notes all emerge from this full-bodied, structured, concentrated effort that reminds me of a First Growth Pauillac. With building tannins and incredible purity of fruit, it’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle and keep for three decades.” - Jeb Dunnuck

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2016 Magnum - 100 RP
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is still very tight and youthful, slowly unfurling to reveal a multifaceted wine with tons of black, blue and red fruit sparks—plums, cherries, black currants and red currants—with dark chocolate, cedar chest, black tea and red roses in the background plus wafts of pencil lead and prosciutto. Medium-bodied and firmly textured by superbly ripe, grainy tannins, it has a fantastic core of intense, complex layers, finishing on an edifying mineral note. Wow!” - Robert Parker Wine Advocate 

Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Magnum - 96+ CWA
“Year in year out, it's easy to see why Silver Oak remains one of the most popular Cabernet Sauvignons in the world’s top restaurants and at collectors’ home cellars. It's made in a more restrained style than many other Napa Cabernets today, while always over-delivering with plenty of berry and currant fruit, and that signature depth of new American oak, accompanied by tobacco and herbs that give it a hedonistic irresistibility. Dazzling, elegant and subtle, all at the same time. Should develop well for a decade or longer. A beautiful showing that you won’t want to miss.” - California Wine Advisors
