100 Cayuse Presents the Power of Four Important things often come in fours. Four seasons. Four elements. Four Beatles—if you count Ringo. And four glorious, three-liter bottles of Cayuse. That’s one for each corner of the Earth, which is where they began. Like all Cayuse wines before or since, the 2011 vintage was born of rocky hardship. Ever the stern taskmaster, vigneron Christophe Baron believes a little suffering is good for a vine—keeps it from getting too comfortable and complacent. As a result, these four grew up alert and lively, eager to leap from the inhospitable soil straight into the welcoming bottle. Here’s what Jeb Dunnuck of The Wine Advocate had to say about them: 2011 Camaspelo “. . . offers deep, layered aromas and flavors of currants, black cherry, flowers, leafy herbs and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and layered mouthfeel … 95-97 points.” 2011 Flying Pig “. . . offers up a knockout bouquet of plum, licorice, mineral, violets and dried spices on the nose . . . Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with superb depth through the mid-palate and a chewy, broad finish … 94-96 points.” 2011 En Chamberlin Vineyard Syrah “Offering up notions of liquid herbs, bacon fat, exotic flowers and grilled meat, as well as a knockout core of sweet Syrah fruit, it possesses a full-bodied, structured mouthfeel that carries awesome purity of fruit … 94-97 points.” 2011 En Cerise Vineyard Syrah “Thick, full-bodied and voluptuous, common for this vineyard, it has fabulous aromas and flavors (black cherry, pepper, and olive tapenade), thrilling purity and a mouth coating, decadent profile that’s hard to resist … 94-97 points.” Proven survivors, these four wines come ready to weather the bleakest of conditions. Dressed in a silky parka, with plum mittens and long purple leg warmers, the 2011 vintage will warm you from the inside out. This package will be sold as one lot. THIS LOT INCLUDES: ■

One immediate place on the Cayuse mailing list—bypassing those on the wait list

104 “Mt. Adams Slumber” Mt. Adams Slumber captures both the majesty of the Pacific Northwest as well as its more intimate, otherworldly beauty. As artist Elizabeth Ganji says, “I am most inspired by the fleeting moment of sunrise and sunset; such powerful, intense change in the world around us. For a few brief moments, we are enveloped so dramatically in a divine play of light—much different than the light we see through the day’s course. Long shadows glow with reflected light and are just as alive as the stretches that are hit by the sun. Standing at the rivers edge, one looks down and sees the sky. The exquisite display is then over as quickly as it arrived, and once again we find ourselves standing there in disbelief that the quiet, passing moment was as intense as it really was. The incredible thing is that there’ll never be another just like it.” “My favorite colors are the illuminated chartreuse strip one might see in the distant low-lit landscape, the sienna undertones that rise up out of a field, and the splash of gold so bright, its almost white – a glare that bounces off a horse’s back in competition with the sun.” Mt. Adams Slumber fully embraces Ganji’s vision, as thoroughly as it bewitches our senses. Win this painting, and you’ll muse again and again over its poetry and magnificence. This package will be sold as one lot. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING: ■

105 Walla Walla Valley Commemorates 30 Years Walla Walla: Where winemakers come from near and far to make their mark on this world. Where the people are friendly – and the wine renowned. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the federal designation of the Walla Walla Valley as an American Viticultural Area, and we’re commemorating the occasion with a very special auction lot. Back in 1984, the four founding wineries had only a vision of how great the Walla Walla Valley could be, but very much believed that the Valley’s soils and weather were ideal for grape growing. Thirty years, 100+ wineries and thousands of accolades later, the Walla Walla Valley is now considered among the best wine regions in the World. Enjoy this selection of 31 magnum bottles and 1 double magnum bottle from wineries throughout the Valley. We hope you’ll find a nod to the past with each sip – and a realization that the best is yet to come. The Walla Walla Valley. Real People Making Great Wine. This package will be sold as one lot and includes 32 bottles. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING:

111 2001 German Riesling 1 As noted wine writers Huge Johnson and Jancis Robinson agree, “The Riesling is the great grape of Germany.” This and the next four lots show the full expression of the magnificent grape that is so uniquely special—yet so underappreciated by the average wine drinker. Real connoisseurs, however, value the unusual floral and spicy quality the Riesling grape can produce in a way no other grape can. In addition, Rieslings are aromatic and fresh when sampled young, but they develop a fascinating maturity the real lover will appreciate. Purchase one of these lots, and you’ll savor fine wine that has been lauded for its perfume as far back as the 14th century. As a more modern wine lover, Adam Lechmere of Food and Travel notes, “Riesling-lovers will sell their souls for the best German examples, which are among the most delicate, long-lived wine ever made.” We love well-made red wine, but a special place in our hearts will always live for Riesling. This package will be sold as one lot and includes 38 bottles. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING:

116 I Love Lucy and Buty and Beast “Are you ‘unpoopular’? Do you pop out at parties?” or so asked Lucy in the famous Vitametavegamin episode of I Love Lucy. Unpoopular or not, we’re sure you’ll love this Seattle getaway featuring a dinner at Ethan Stowell’s fabulous Tavolàta paired by Buty’s tremendous wines (hey, anyone remember the one where Lucy stomped grapes?) with a showing of The Paramount’s I Love Lucy by the Seattle Theatre Group. Plan two evenings for this one, because you’ll want to savor it. Night one, you and another couple will convene at Tavolàta for a gourmet Italian meal the likes of which our beloved Lucy never saw. As Stowell says, he “grew up in Seattle and is self-taught.” He was named one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs in America in 2008 and has been nominated for more James Beard Awards than he cares to remember. He opened Union in 2003 and hasn’t looked back. Tavolàta is all about fresh, local ingredients and unpretentious, but delicious presentation. Buty is a family-owned winery located in Walla Walla. Using grapes from a handful of renowned Washington winegrowing sites, including a prized section of Phinny Hill Vineyard and Buty’s own organic Rockgarden Estate, Buty makes a small portfolio of highly acclaimed wines, including its Columbia Rediviva, Rediviva of the Stones, Sémillon, Sauvignon & Muscadelle blend, and its Conner Lee Vineyard Chardonnay. Buty’s visionary Rediviva wines were Washington’s first premium blends of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and continue to set the standard for this iconic blend among the great wineries of the Northwest. Guided by Nina Buty, the Buty team includes legendary consultant Zelma Long and renowned winemaker Chris Dowsett. Buty’s wines have earned a reputation for their artistry, and for the authenticity that inspires Buty’s winemaking approach. Buty has been at the forefront of several winemaking movements—from its commitment to using little-or-no new oak in many of its wines to a belief in picking earlier to retain purity, aromatics and acidity, and finally the winery’s dedication to a natural approach that eschews the use of any additions or “enhancement tools.” Today, Buty’s sought-after, limited-production wines are recognized as benchmarks for quality, creativity and value—offering a rare intersection of all three elements. Night two is I Love Lucy—need we say more? A charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process of this brand new thing called “television;” the Crystaltone Singers perform advertising jingles in perfect 50s style harmony; and the sidesplitting antics of America’s favorite foursome—Lucy, Ricky, Fred, and Ethel—are presented live on stage and in color for the very first time. It’s a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience. This package will be sold as one lot for three couples and will take place on a date between April 3 and April 6, 2014.

130 Celebrate with Taittinger Despite protests from her friend la Veuve Clicquot, Taittinger has long been considered the “elegant lady” of Champagne. Founded in 1734, Taittinger Champagnes have traditionally been lauded for their distinctive and impeccably crisp profile with a touch of yeast. And what marvelously elegant bottles these are! The 1978 Taittinger Collection was the first bottle in the series. It was commissioned from Victor Vasarely, the Hungarian French Op Art master whose visual experiments informed the aesthetics of our digital age. The Taittinger Collection Series bottles are released only in great vintages from a selection of the year’s finest cuvées. The bottle itself is beautiful to behold, and its contents surely even more wonderful to savor. The 1990 Comtes DE Champagne Millesime Blanc de Blancs is intended as the ultimate expression of the Taittinger style. Only the first press juice is used. Prior to bottling, the Blanc de Blancs is aged for 10 years on the lees in 13th-century chalk cellars that were once the property of Saint Nicaise abbey. The Wine Spectator awarded this wine 94 points. This package will be sold as one lot. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING:

138 Vintage Porto Less than two percent of the Port produced is vintage, and it is only crafted in years when the grapes yield their fullest expression. Only through a donation from the personal cellar of discerning collectors were we able to put together these eight bottles of old vintage port for you. You’d have to scour the world—not to mention dig deep in your wallet—to assemble such a fine collection yourself. These are all bottles from between 1955 and 1966, from the Douro Valley’s finest houses. Polish your crystal port glass, break out the Stilton, and lean back with a Graham Greene novel. You have some extraordinary drinking pleasure before you.

139 Jura Red Wine from 1904 In 1904, women wore long skirts and wide-brimmed hats as they slowly began to shake the rigor of the Victorian era. It was the year James Joyce met his future wife, Nora, on a June afternoon in Dublin, and the year Henry Ford set a land speed record with the nascent machine, an automobile, reaching an incredible 91 miles an hour. This was also the year this Jean Bourdy Cotes-du-Jura wine was bottled. Caves Jean Bourdy has been making wine since 1475 in the tiny village of Arlay, France, abutting Bordeaux. Fifteen generations later, the winery is still run by the family and is now biodynamic. Jura reds are made from local grape varietals: Poulsard and Trousseau as well as Pinot Noir. They are spicy, earthy, and light-to-medium bodied, thanks in part to the blue marl soils from which they draw their nutrients and the unique ambient yeasts. Tradition holds that Jura wines are not topped off in the barrel, which builds a protective layer that controls the wine’s exposure to oxygen for their long gestation before bottling and makes them age-worthy. This package will be as one lot. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING:

140 First & Second Vintages of Opus One Opus One was born of a marriage of the best of French and Californian wine traditions. In 1979, Chateau Mouton Rothschild winemaker Lucien Sionneau and Robert Mondavi’s son Timothy joined forces to create Opus One’s first vintage at the Robert Mondavi Winery. When 1979 and 1980 vintages were simultaneously unveiled in 1984 as Opus One’s first release, they became America’s first ultra-premium wine, fetching prices formerly unheard of for California wine. Before long, no Wall Street mogul could go without a bottle of Opus One in his cellar, and many a bottle was uncorked in private yachts and luxury penthouses. In this package, you have the rare opportunity to take home two bottles of each of Opus One’s first two vintages. Not only will you enjoy exquisite, carefully aged wine, you will own a piece of history. This package will be sold as one lot. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING:
