Prior to starting his collection this consignor was a chef and learned a lot about wine and its ability to enhance the dining experience from some of the sommeliers he worked with. He trained in classical French and Italian cuisine and much of his collection consists of California Cabernets and full- bodied Italian wine to pair with meat-centric dishes. He purchased hi wine from the LCBO and larger Ontario agencies and it was always stored in a temperature-controlled cellar.

The wine in this lot has a score of 93 from Wine Enthusiast and the following tasting note -This wine remains one of the finest values in the Napa Valley and a cool-climate example of the variety, to boot. With great opening aromas of blackberry, clove and dried herb, the lifted, balanced flavors follow suit, showing plenty of freshness and length around a well-integrated and elegant core.
