RED BURGUNDY WINE BASKET
Donated by Vintage Fine Wines
Make it an extra special evening with two bottles of what Weston resident and Vintage Fine Wines owner Frank Lugossy calls “serious juice!” 
 
2005 Domaine Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru
This Grand Cru ranked #26 on Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008.   From Wine Spectator: "A red of purity and suppleness.  Reveals a dense core of cherry, spice and mineral aromas and flavors allied to a firm structure, while great energy propels this to a long, lingering aftertaste.  A combination of power and finesse.  Best from 2014 through 2030.  425 cases imported."  Wine Spectator: 95 Points
 
2008 Domaine Armand Rousseau Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Wines from this legendary estate are among the most sought after in all of Burgundy. From Burghound: “An ultra fresh and very pinot nose is nuanced by hints of Gevrey-style earth and a hint of forest floor that also is reflected by the cool, detailed and pliant middle weight flavors that possess good depth but also a mildly edgy finish where it will round out.  The 2008 Charmes-Chambertin is a typically floral and fragrant Pinot Noir with layers of rose petal and light spice.  The palate is extremely elegant and refined, but will also live for well over a decade with careful cellaring.”
    
 
Value: $475
Minimum Bid: $425

 


CALIFORNIA DREAMING WINE BASKET
Donated by Vintage Fine Wines

 
Indulge in a trio of California wines put together by Westonite Frank Lugossy, owner of Vintage Fine Wines:

2009 Justin Isosceles Bordeaux Blend
This is an alluring, rich mix of ripe black currants and berries faceted with vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa highlights. Easy to drink now, but offering the promise of a great future. Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Merlot.

 
2007 Domaine Georg Rafael Pere & Fils Cabernet
Blackberry, cherry and vanilla flavors abound on the first taste. Well-balanced and structured while being soft and approachable. Will easily allow aging for 12-15 years. The grapes came from the upper block at the top of the site. Only 712 cases produced.

 
2008 Ghost Block Single Vineyard Yountville Cabernet
Aromas of dark chocolate and spice lead to a full palate of black berries, cherries and cocoa. Coveted by celebrity winemakers, the fruit from Ghost Block Vineyard and nearby vineyards has been the cornerstone of many of Napa's "Cult Wines".

Value: $275
Minimum Bid: $240
