Wine Spectator Review
Rated 91
This has a bright sassafras and savory streak running through the middle of its juicy plum and blackberry compote-filled core, while a lively anise note wraps up the finish. Drink now through 2030.

WineTasting Notes
Michael Broadbent, the 24th Master of Wine, had a rich history in the wine business. His book Wine Tasting was the first book devoted to the taste of wine, and set the standard for how wine is tasted by professionals. Broadbent wrote notes on over 90,000 wines and had a monthly column in Decanter magazine for 36 years, but he is best known for pioneering wine auctions. He was the founder of Christie's wine department in 1966, and partnered with Robert Mondavi to start the Napa Valley Wine Auction in 1981. The Auctioneer is a tribute to the great Michael Broadbent, and it is a wine he'd be proud to drink in good company.

The final wine is refined, elegant, and beautifully balanced - in essence, the style of wine that made Napa Valley famous. Aged in 60% New Oak and 40% neutral barrels for 15 months.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect representation of the glorious conditions Mother Nature provided Napa Valley in 2018. The wine is dark and dense, with aromas of Cassis, plum, anise, and just the right amount of toasty spice and vanilla. A fruit forward Cabernet displaying rich cherry and blackberry flavors. Your palate is enveloped in soft, ripe, tannins, which lead to beautiful balanced finish.

80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

Alcohol: 13.5%
