    THE NETWORK’S CELLAR We are locked into an NDA from disclosing whom this cellar belongs, but make no mistake, we guarantee you have seen their work. While creating lasting art for the small screen our consignor was simultaneously collecting vinous art from some of finest wineries on the planet—and in large quantities. There are far too many highlights to list, but a quick snapshot includes numerous OWC of Harlan, Colgin, Insignia, Ridge, Mouton, etc. Wines have been untouched and stored professionally in Los Angeles for over a decade. A flawless collection. Bid with utmost confidence.

    "The 2005 Château Palmer is in a gorgeous place right now where it is just beginning to show the very early signs of aromatic development. Dark, powerful and seductive, the 2005 is a totally effortless wine. Black cherry, mocha, plum, licorice, new leather and spice open up first, followed by subtler hints of rosemary and lavender that add nuance. Even with all of its overt radiance and intensity, the Palmer retains the sense of freshness that is such a signature of the year. Readers lucky enough to own the 2005 can look forward to many more years of exceptional drinking." (96 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb. 2016)

    "...the 2005 Château Palmer is a legend in the making. Apparently the vines received 57% less rain than average, yet the 2005 shrugs off any water deficiency and has nurtured a wondrously pixelated bouquet, whereby mineralité shines through the black cherry and blueberry fruit. Search deeper and you discover veins of graphite that impart a Pauillac-like allure. The palate is medium-bodied and intense, but it is not overwhelming, a Margaux that is galvanized with a firm backbone thereby ensuring this will age over the long term. The symmetry here is enthralling - a 2005 that is destined for greatness." (97 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, May 2016)

    "Its bigger sister, the 2005 Château Palmer (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot), is one of the great efforts of this superlative vintage. Floral notes mixed with blackberry, cassis, plum, licorice and spring flowers soar from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. It is medium to full-bodied, surprisingly opulent (it has a big percentage of Merlot), long, multi-dimensional and textured. This wonderfully pure, stunning wine once again performs as a first-growth. It should drink well for the next 20-25 years." (98 pts. Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com #219, June 2015)
