11 introduction to the Summer 2018 Auction This has proven to be a truly momentous year at Spectrum Wine. From January we have officially joined forces with Newport Beach-based Rolf s Wine & Spirits, thereby enormously expanding our retail offerings, our wine storage services, our reach, and our footprint. Founded in 1953 by southern California legend Rolf Engen, Rolf s is the oldest wine purveyor in Orange County as well as the only wine storage facility in Newport Beach, and we are extremely excited to be able to bring new synergies, new products, and new services to our rapidly expanding global customer base. In February we lowered the hammer on the extraordinary $4.2M sale of The Tower Cellar, shattering numerous world records in the process. In March we lowered the hammer on an thrilling Spring 2018 auction series that saw the sale of 110 collections at $1.2M. In April the Spectrum team traveled to Bordeaux to taste (and to buy) the beautifully classic 2017 vintage in barrel, and we were thrilled with the results, particularly in Pauillac, Saint-Émilion, and Pomerol. And now, as of May, we have welcomed another wine storage facility in Orange County s central Irvine business hub into the fold, meaning we can now offer 20,000+ square feet of professional wine storage across 600+ lockers in multiple locations. This is truly a new era for Spectrum Wine, and we thank you joining us for the ride. The Summer 2018 Auction will be our 22nd auction of the year and perhaps our most exquisitely eclectic. This auction will likely prove to be the world s first auction offering of the acclaimed Château Margaux 2015 Hommage à Paul Pontallier: Margaux s unique 2015 bottle design is meant to mark the bicentenary of the completion of the Estate s iconic buildings in 1815, the completion of gorgeous, new facilities designed by acclaimed architect Norman Foster, the outstanding character of the 2015 vintage, and, perhaps most significantly, the tragic passing of longtime director Paul Pontallier at the far too young age of 59. We have thus opted to honor this historic estate, this extraordinary vintage, and a truly extraordinary man in Monsieur Pontallier by displaying these peerlessly beautiful bottles on this catalog s cover. There are innumerable great names in this catalog: López de Heredia, Marqués de Murrieta, de Vogüé, Ramonet, Ponsot, Keller, Rinaldi, Heitz, Harlan, Mayacamas, Nikolaihof, and so much more. There are no fewer than 21 Lots from the sui generis Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, including 3 vintages of Romanée-Conti itself. There are 31 Lots from Domaine Ponsot, including Clos de la Roche in bottle, magnum, and jeroboam formats as well as some of Ponsot s rarest bottlings such as the Chambertin, Clos Saint-Denis, Clos de Bèze, and Montrachet. And we can boast an entire lineup of Courvoisier s acclaimed Erté Collection Cognac, numbers one through eight, as well as one bottle of the rare L Esprit de Courvoisier. Across the auction, vintages range from 1952 to 2015, formats range from 0.375L to 6.0L, and lot sizes range from one bottle to twelve, so there is truly something here for everyone. As always, we are honored and humbled to be able to bring such beautiful and lovingly-cellared wines and spirits to our customers. If you have any questions, would like additional photographs, or would like to schedule a lot viewing, please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to you joining us on the evening of Friday 15 June at the incomparable Shady Canyon Golf Club here in Orange County, be it in person or online at We encourage you to bring some bottles to share and, as always, we will be opening wines from the collections on offer as well. Santé! Christopher Weed Director of Operations and Wine Specialist

18 Château Belle-Vue 2009 Haut-Médoc, Cru Bourgeois In a somewhat tragic twist, this over-achieving cru bourgeois in Haut-Médoc has turned in its finest wine to date, an unfined cuvée made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot, created by the late proprietor Vincent Mulliez, who died suddenly last year. Sadly, this was his best effort. Notes of blackberries, black currants, licorice and a hint of toasty oak jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, well-endowed, impressively pure and textured wine.

Composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot that came in at 13.09% alcohol, it is a surprisingly intense effort displaying a marvelous texture, plenty of black currant, licorice, unsmoked cigar tobacco and earthy characteristics, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning purity as well as density.

32 Château Pavie 2005 Saint-Émilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) Gérard Perse believes this is the greatest Pavie he s made to date, although certainly I would argue that list includes the 2000, as well as the 2009 and 2010, among his superstars. This wine, which I had both in the 2005 horizontal report in the Wine Advocate, and at a mini-vertical with Perse at the restaurant Maison Boulud in Montreal, looks to be a 75- to 100-year wine. Dense, opaque purple to the rim, with a gorgeously promising nose of blackberries, cassis, graphite and cedar wood just beginning to emerge, it tastes more like a three-year-old than wine that is already a decade old. This beauty is intense and full-bodied, with magnificent concentration, a majestic mouthfeel and a total seamless integration of tannin, wood, alcohol, etc. Beautifully rich, full and multidimensional, this is a tour de force in winemaking and certainly one of the top dozen or so 2005 Bordeaux... drink it over the following years! Pavie is widely acclaimed as one of Bordeaux s greatest terroirs, of largely limestone and clay soils. Brilliantly situated with a sunny, southern exposure and exceptional drainage, Pavie potentially rivals nearby Ausone, the oldest and possibly the most famous estate in Bordeaux. Pavie s other nearby neighbors include, Pavie-Macquin and Troplong-Mondot to the north, Larcis-Ducasse to the southeast and La Gaffelière and Saint-Georges Côte Pavie to the west... In short, [owners Chantal and Gérard Perse] dramatically raised the quality. Currently, the vineyard is planted with 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, but the actual blend for each vintage tends to possess slightly higher amounts of Merlot. A perfectionist, owner Gérard Perse is flexible with the percentage of new oak, as well as how long the wine is aged in cask. Great vintages can get 100% new oak and spend up to 32 months in barrel. Lesser years are bottled after 18 months and see at least 30% less new oak. There is no fining or filtration.

This sensational, opaque, bluish/purple wine offers up notes of vanillin, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, plus a touch of licorice. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. It is full-bodied, multidimensional and layered. The tannins are beautifully integrated but still present, and the wood, acidity, alcohol, etc., are all beautifully assimilated in this magnificent, majestic vintage of Angélus. It can be drunk now, but it is still an adolescent and that suggests it has at least another years of longevity. he Boüard family, the proprietors of Château Angélus date from 1544 in Saint-Émilion. Located on lower hillsides, with a southerly exposure, their 67-acre vineyard, composed of sandstone, limestone and clay, is planted with 47% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Hubert de Boüard, who single-handedly elevated the quality...hit pay dirt with his efforts starting in Since then, there has been a remarkable succession of great wines. Radical viticulture such as crop-thinning, shoot-positioning and the immensely laborintensive manual destemming are employed. Both a second and third wine are made, as the selection process for Angélus is severe. All of this resulted in the 2012 Angelus being upgraded, along with Pavie, to Premier Grand Cru Classé (A), joining Cheval Blanc and Ausone as one of only four estates in Saint-Émilion to receive this accolade.

Even with 7 years of bottle age, this remains a racehorse of a wine with firm acidity and terrific focus and as I noted in my orginal review, it can compete with the grands crus in 2004 as it definitely has that wow factor. One other aspect is worth noting is that thanks to the excellent mid-palate fat, this can be enjoyed now even in magnum format though it would be a shame to lose all of the upside potential that the 04 MdT has in such abundance.

The monopole Clos des Monts Luisants is 2.5 hectares of vines in total, with one hectare planted to aligoté, one hectare of pinot noir entitled to premier cru states (and from which this bottling originates) and half a hectare of pinot noir vines considered part of Clos de la Roche. The 2012 Cuvée Alouettes is another absolutely stunning premier cru that has aspirations to grand cru quality in this vintage, offering up a beautiful bouquet of black cherries, dark plums, dark chocolate, gamebirds, woodsmoke, just a touch of violet and a superb base of soil tones.

The palate is medium-bodied and nigh perfectly balanced. The tannins are filigree, the fruit extremely pure with an intense mineralité on the finish. There is an effortless quality about this La Tâche and yet is just clams up on the finish, does not quite deliver that knockout blow that so many other vintages have given.

The 2012 is an utterly brilliant wine in the making and was one of the most stunning white wines I tasted on my entire trip in November. The deep and fabulous nose soars from the glass in a complex blend of pear, apple, white flowers, a very complex base of white soil tones, a nice dollop of fresh almond, spring flowers and a gently musky topnote redolent of honeysuckle. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure and complex, with a great core of fruit, superb soil inflection, very suave, seamless acids and simply brilliant length and grip on the complex and perfectly balanced finish.

The 2011 had just been racked the week before our visit, but was showing quite well despite this, offering up a deep and sappy nose of black cherries, dark berries, chocolate, some resinous tones and a deep base of soil. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, long and very sappy at the core, with good acids, ripe tannins and very fine length and grip. Today the wine is quite fruit-driven in personality, but I am sure that is simply a result of its recent racking and more of its soil personality will come to the fore as it bounces back from the racking.

I did a vertical tasting of many of the old, historic vintages of this wine, and they are included in a separate article in this very same issue. This 1986 had seen the light as a limited early release bottled in 1992 and sold around 1995, and some bottles might still be found in the market. But most of it remained unbottled and was kept at the winery, where it stayed in oak for 21 years, followed by some six years in cement vats until it was bottled. It has 13.5% alcohol, an extremely low ph of 2.98 and 6.75 grams of acidity (tartaric). It has a very subtle nose and it s a bit shy, a little closed at first. It was only bottled one and a half years ago, and it s not crazy to say that the wine is showing extremely young. The wine shows more open the day after, when it has developed some nuances of mushrooms and verbena tea. This is mostly Viura with perhaps a pinch of Malvasía Riojana (aka Alarije). The palate is both powerful and elegant, with superb acidity and great length, with volume and sharpness, with a mineral, umami-driven finish. It fills your mouth, tickles your taste buds and makes you salivate. There is nothing negative about the wine; there is no excess oak, nothing blurry, nothing to improve... perhaps the bottle used! I think this is a perfect wine. It seems to be getting younger and younger with time in the glass; it seems to be getting more focused and sharper, and I have no doubt the wine will evolve and last for a very, very, very long time in bottle. I kept the opened bottle for almost one week and the wine didn t move one inch no oxidation or any signs of fatigue. Having tasted many other vintages, including the also perfect 1919 (which is still going strong at age 97), I have no doubt we re talking about a white for the next 50 years. Looking at the older vintages, I might even be underestimating its life span. The potential next release could be the 1998 in no less than ten years time.

There is just a whisper of melted tannin still to be found on the backend here, indicating that there are still decades of outstanding drinking ahead for the 76 Tondonia Gran Reserva.

58 Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard MMXII Old Sparky 2012 Oakville Another compelling, perfect wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard Old Sparky. This is Clone 4 and Clone 6, as well as Clone 337, blended together from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. For whatever reason, this wine seems to show more chocolate, espresso roast, barbecue smoke, dense blackberry and blueberry fruit and enormous body with not a touch of heaviness or astringency. This is a fabulous offering. The Schraders, working with well-known winemaking consultant Thomas Rivers Brown, continue to farm and produce some of the world s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons from three fabulous Beckstoffer-owned vineyards: the To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, the Georges III Vineyard in Rutherford and the Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena. To Kalon is gravelly, eluvial, loamy soils; Georges III Vineyard is an old creek bed; and Las Piedras Vineyard in St. Helena is planted on old river rock and gravelly loam. All of these blocks utilized for Schrader s wines encompass over 25+ acres and are custom-farmed as Fred Schrader likes to say, essentially virtual vineyards, even though they re not owned by the Schraders. Their initial focus, which has proven so successful, is essentially a microscopic study of different clones planted in different blocks with exactly the same philosophy of viticulture, harvesting, winemaking, élevage and bottling.

Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard 1976 Stags Leap District David Heitz graciously opened up a bottle of the 1976 Fay Vineyard during my most recent visit to the winery, as this was the one vintage I had not tasted of this bottling from the brief era when it was produced at Heitz Cellars. As David noted, the drought conditions in 1976 were very, very difficult for the vines, and this vintage was probably one of the worst of this fantastic decade for Napa cabernet. Nevertheless, the 1976 Fay bottling is really lovely, as it offers up a complex and fully mature bouquet of cherries, quince, chipotle peppers, cigar smoke, lovely spice tones, a nice base of soil, orange peel and Asian spices in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, suave and à point, with lovely focus and complexity and a long, mature finish that still sports excellent grip and balance. Classy juice.

Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard 1975 Stags Leap District It had been five years since I last had a bottle of the 1975 Fay Vineyard bottling of cabernet sauvignon from the Heitz family, but in this last year I have had the good fortune to drink the wine on three occasions and found it to be stellar on each visit. The deep and very pure nose offers up a still fairly youthful mélange of red and black cherries, chipotle peppers, cigar smoke, a touch of red curry, lead pencil, petroleum jelly and a lovely base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with a beautiful core of vivid fruit, plenty of Rutherford dust soil tones, still a touch of tannin and a long, tangy and perfectly balanced finish that closes with excellent grip and complexity. A classic wine that time never seems to touch- perhaps due to its thirteen percent alcohol level?

65 Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 1975 Mt. Veeder I have friends who cut their teeth on the cabernets from this era, and surprisingly, they rank both 1973 and 1975 vintages slightly ahead of the 1974s, as they find the 74s a bit too ripe and massive to have produced classic California cabernet. The 1975 Mayacamas cabernet must be amongst the two or three finest wines of this superb vintage, as it soars from the glass in a brilliantly complex mélange of black cherries, tar, black truffles, cigar smoke, lovely soil tones, espresso and a touch of mint and petroleum jelly in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and vibrant, with a great core of sappy black cherry fruit and black truffle tones, tangy acids, still a bit of ripe tannin and outstanding length and grip on the beautifully focused and complex finish. This is one of the great wines to ever have been made in California s history, and I cannot believe that I opened a magnum of this last year, given the fact that this wine probably still has thirty or forty years more life ahead of it.

The Bourbonnais Cellar Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 1974 Mt. Veeder The 1974 Mayacamas cabernet...is still a tad on the young side and really deserves a bit more bottle age before it reaches its apogee of peak maturity in this sized format. The brilliant nose offers up a smorgasbord of black cherries, cigar smoke, a bit of road tar, a beautifully complex base of volcanic soil tones, hints of both mint and petroleum jelly and a pungent topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is deep, pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with moderate tannins, outstanding complexity and grip, perfect balance and stunning length and grip on the still vibrant and palate-staining finish.

Veeder Paired up with the brilliant 1970 Château Montrose, one would intuitively think that this lovely old cabernet would be a bit out of its league. However, this was emphatically not the case, as it not only matched, but may even have nosed out the Montrose served alongside. The beautiful, very deep and complex nose is a blend of top flight Graves cut in the La Mission style and a bit of classic California cabernet, as it offers up notes of black cherries, black truffles, singed tobacco leaf, a touch of petroleum jelly and eucalyptus, cigar ash and earth. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and brilliantly balanced, with striking transparency for a big old cab, and great depth and focus on the very, very long, soil-driven and complex finish.

(That this calls for renewed demonstration, though, is a measure of how much Riesling wisdom has been willfully unlearned in the last couple of decades.) We left those bunches that exhibited a bit of botrytis to hang for another week after harvesting the Grosses Gewächs, explained Franzen, and the resulting harvest was further sorted to make possible a separate Auslese. A colorful and decadently ripe amalgam of muskmelon, mango, peach, sweet lime and lychee delivers a heady, aromatic, lush palate performance. The feel here is flatteringly creamy and buoyant (at 9.5 percent alcohol), finishing with soothing persistence and a welcome influx of downright refreshing primary juiciness and mouthwatering salinity.

The Bouvreuil Cellar Keller Niersteiner Hipping Riesling HM VDP Nahe-Ahr Versteigerung # Nierstein, Grosse Lage The 1,400 liters of this juice took three full days to pass through Keller s basket press and it was worth the wait! Fermentation petered out with a dozen grams of sugar remaining, so that is how he left things. Scents of white peach tinged with mint and smoky black tea lead into a silky, lusciously juicy mid-palate featuring white peach, quince and Rainier cherry further infused with green herbs, black tea and crushed stone. Hidden sweetness undoubtedly helps support the wine s ripe fruit as well as enhance its textural caress and (thanks to that much less alcohol) its buoyancy. Richness and subtle creaminess do not in any way preclude utmost transparency to herbal and mineral nuances, and there is mouthwatering salinity here beyond what I experienced at this youthful stage with other of Keller s dry Rieslings. With a wonderful sense of vibrant finishing energy, this manages to at once stimulate and soothe. It s been a long time since there was such a glorious wine from Hipping, even though great wines are legion in the history of this site, and especially from the portion (known officially prior to 1971 as Flächenhahl) that Keller acquired from Franz Karl Schmitt.

90 Terms and Conditions Bidders are strongly encouraged to read the Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale which describe the terms governing the purchase of all property sold at auction. 1. Definitions. As used in these Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, the following words have the meaning set forth below: Bidder is any person participating, making or attempting to make a bid at an Auction Sale. Buyer is the person who makes the highest bid accepted by the Auctioneer, including the principal of any Bidder acting as an agent. Buyer s Expense means all costs or expenses payable by the Buyer in addition to the Purchase Price, in connection with the sale, such as applicable storage costs. Buyer s Premium is the commission payable by the Buyer to the Auctioneer in the amount of twenty-one percent (21%) of the Hammer Price. Hammer Price is the bid accepted by the Auctioneer by the fall of the hammer, or in the case of a post auction sale, the agreed upon sales price. Purchase Price is the sum of the Hammer Price, Buyer s Premium and all applicable taxes. Reserve is the confidential minimum Hammer Price at which the Seller has agreed to sell a lot. Seller is the person, including agents, personal representatives and executors, offering a lot or lots for sale 2. Auction Basics. This is a public wine auction sale (the Auction Sale ) conducted by SPECTRUM WINE AUCTIONS, LLC, a California limited liability company, a bonded auctioneer (referred to as Auctioneer or Spectrum Wine Auctions ). Lot(s) may carry a Reserve. Prior to bidding, all participants must read and agree to the Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, which describe the terms governing the purchase of wine sold at the Auction Sale. By participating in the auction, a Bidder agrees to be bound by the Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale printed in the auction catalogue, posted on the Auctioneer s website or posted at the Auction Sale. As auctioneer, Spectrum Wine Auctions acts only as agent for the Seller. The sale contract for the lot(s) purchased at the Auction Sale is made directly between the Buyer and Seller. In those instances when the Auctioneer is the owner of a lot, it will also be the Seller. Sellers may bid and purchase lot(s) in the Auction Sale consigned by them or by other Sellers. A Seller who re-acquires their own lots in the Auction Sale may pay a different fee, or no fee, than the Buyer s Premium charged to other Buyers, pursuant to their consignment agreement with the Auctioneer. Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to include its own wine, as well as wine from affiliated or related companies, principals, officers or employees, in any Auction Sale. Spectrum Wine Auctions may have direct or indirect interests in any of the lots in the Auction Sale and may collect commissions other than the Buyer s Premium. THE TWO PRECEED- ING SENTENCES SHALL BE DEEMED A PART OF THE DESCRIPTION OF ALL LOTS CONTAINED IN THE AUCTION CATALOGUE. When a Seller re-acquires a lot, Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to note this in the prices realized from the Auction Sale or to omit the price for such lots from the prices realized. Spectrum Wine Auctions may bid for its own account at any Auction Sale without being required to pay a Buyer s Commission, or other charges that other Buyers may be required to pay. 3. Descriptions. To the Auctioneer s, knowledge, which is based primarily on information provided by Sellers, wines offered for sale have been properly stored prior to being delivered to our temperature and humidity-controlled storage facility. Each bottle has been described as accurately as possible. However, Buyers of older and more fragile wines should be aware of and make proper allowances for natural variations of ullage and general conditions. All Bidders are encouraged to inspect and investigate lots they are interested in prior to purchase. Bidder s acknowledge that Spectrum Wine Auctions is unable to conduct complete due diligence on each lot, and is not representing or warranting, and has no responsibility or liability for the accuracy of the catalogue descriptions, including without limitation, vintage, provenance, authenticity, quality and condition. Any and all statements relating to the wine in the catalogue, or contained in advertisements or promotional materials, are merely statements of opinion and should not be construed as, nor do they constitute representations or warranties of fact or the assumption of any liability on the part of Spectrum Wine Auctions or the Seller. All photographs in this catalogue are of the actual items being sold but may not be the actual size or to scale. 4. Bidder Registration Required. All persons seeking to bid must have a catalogue and register to bid at the Auction Sale by completing and signing a registration card or bid sheet. Please be prepared to provide bank references, identification and a major credit card. Major credit cards and/or driver s licenses will be required as identification. Bidders must be at least 21 years old and may be required to show proof of age. By submitting a bid, the Bidder acknowledges that Bidder has read the Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, the descriptions for the lot(s) on which they have bid, and that they agree to adhere to these Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale. All Bidders are personally liable for their bids, whether or not acting as an agent. This agreement shall be deemed to have been made in California. The Bidder acknowledges that the invoice describing a lot by number incorporates the catalogue and Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale. 5. The Bidding Process. The Auctioneer may open or accept the bidding on any lot by placing a bid on behalf of the Seller, a mail, telephone, internet or telefax Bidder; or any other Bidder in the Auction Sale. The Auctioneer may accept or decline any bid, challenge any bid or set bidding increments, as the Auctioneer in its sole discretion shall determine. All wine shall be sold in separate lots to the highest Bidder as determined by the Auctioneer. Bids must be for an entire lot and each lot constitutes a separate sale. No lot will be broken up unless otherwise permitted by the Auctioneer. Lots will be sold in their numbered sequence unless Auctioneer directs otherwise. Auctioneer shall have the right in its sole and absolute discretion to adjudicate all bidding disputes and shall have the right, but not the obligation, to rescind the acceptance of any bid and place the lot(s) for Auction Sale again. Auctioneer s decision on all bidding disputes shall be binding and final. For the mail and internet Bidder s protection, no unlimited or buy bids will be accepted. When identical bids are received for a lot, preference is given to the first bid received as determined by the Auctioneer. An absentee bid will take precedence over an identical floor bid; a Floor Bidder and Telephone Bidder must bid higher than the highest absentee bid to be awarded any lot. Auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any bid, to reduce any absentee bid received, to open the bidding of a lot at any level deemed appropriate by the Auctioneer and to determine the prevailing bid, in its sole discretion. THIS IS NOT AN APPROVAL SALE. Bidders who physically attend the Auction Sale, either personally or through an agent ( Floor Bidders ) should carefully examine all lots which they are interested in purchasing. Bidders who bid by telephone, either personally or through an agent, receive a similar benefit as Floor Bidders in being able to actively participate in the live Auction Sale ( Telephone Bidders ). Therefore, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, ALL SALES ARE FINAL, WINE PURCHASED AT AUCTION MAY NOT BE RETURNED FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER BY ANY BIDDER. If it is determined in a review by Auctioneer that there is a material error in the catalogue description of a lot, the lot may be returned if written notice of the error is received by Auctioneer within seventy-two (72) hours of Buyer s receipt of the lot(s). Thereafter, the lot(s) must be returned and received by Auctioneer no later than fourteen (14) calendar days after such written notice, in the same condition the lot(s) were delivered to the Bidder, including all labels and in their original, wooden cases (if applicable). Late return constitutes just cause for revocation of all return privileges. All prospective Bidders who have the opportunity to examine the lot(s) prior to the Auction Sale have no return privileges and personally assume all responsibility for any damage caused by them in connection with examining the lot(s). Auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the value of the damage caused, which shall be promptly paid by the prospective Bidder. AUCTIONEER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ERRORS IN BIDDING. A Bidder should make certain to bid on the correct lot and that the bid is the bid intended. Once the hammer has fallen and the Auctioneer has announced the winning Bidder, the auction sale is complete and the Bidder is unconditionally bound to pay for the lot, even if the Bidder has made a mistake. Auctioneer reserves the right to withdraw any lot at any time, even after the hammer has fallen, until the Bidder has taken 74

91 Terms and Conditions (continued) physical possession of the lot. No Bidder shall have a right to claim any consequential damages if a lot is withdrawn, even after the Auction Sale. 6. Passage of Title and Other Conditions of Sale. Subject to fulfillment of all of the conditions set forth herein, on the fall of the Auctioneer s hammer, title to the offered lot will pass to the highest Bidder acknowledged and accepted by the Auctioneer, and thereupon, such Buyer assumes full risk and responsibility for the purchased lot. Buyer shall immediately pay the Purchase Price and all Buyer Expenses in full, in accordance with the conditions set forth herein. Payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Auctioneer has collected good funds. In the event the Buyer fails to pay all or any portion of the total Purchase Price for any lot and Auctioneer nonetheless elects to pay the Seller all or any portion of the sale proceeds, the Buyer acknowledges that Auctioneer shall have all of the rights of the Seller to pursue the Buyer for any amounts paid to the Seller, whether at law, in equity, or under these Conditions of Sale. 7. Prices, Payment and Delivery. A Buyer s Commission of twenty-one percent (21%) of the Hammer Price on each individual lot will be added to all purchases (with the exception of re-acquisitions by Sellers). Payment is due immediately upon receipt of notification. Payment is delinquent and in default if not made in good funds in full within fourteen (14) days after the Auction Sale, without exception. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, auction sales are strictly cash in U.S. funds payable through a bank in the United States. On any cash transaction or series of transactions exceeding $10,000, Treasury Form 8300 will be filed. Contact Spectrum Wine Auctions for wiring instructions before sending a wire. Lots must be paid for prior delivery. Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to decline to release lots for which good funds have not yet been received. On any accounts past due, Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to extend credit and impose periodic charges. Bidder agrees to pay reasonable attorney s fees and cost incurred to collect on such past due accounts. Payment by Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover may be accepted only for bidders whose total purchases for the Auction Sale do not exceed $5,000. Bids will not be accepted from those persons under twenty-one (21) years of age. Bidders personally and unconditionally guarantee payment of the Purchase Price for all purchased lots and any amounts that are or become owed to Spectrum Wine Auctions. If a corporation is the Bidder, the corporate representative present at the sale shall provide Spectrum Wine Auctions at the time of registration with a statement signed by each principal, director and officer that they each personally and unconditionally guarantee any and all current or future obligations owed to Spectrum Wine Auctions or such other statement as may be acceptable to Spectrum Wine Auctions, in its sole discretion. Bidders who have not established credit with Spectrum Wine Auctions must furnish satisfactory credit references or deposit at least twenty-five percent (25%) of their total bids for that Auction Sale session(s) or such other amounts as Spectrum Wine Auctions may, in its sole and absolute discretion, require before such bids will be accepted. Deposits submitted will be applied to purchases. Any remaining deposits will be promptly refunded, upon clearance of funds. Spectrum Wine Auctions will not assume responsibility for the shipping and packaging of purchased lots. It is the Bidder s responsibility to arrange for pick up or delivery of purchased lots within fourteen (14) days of the Auction Sale. All purchased lots are at Buyer s risk, including the responsibility to insure, at the earlier of pick up or fourteen (14) days after the Auction Sale. All packing and handling is at the Buyer s risk. Spectrum Wine Auctions will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers. Bidders who hold valid ABC licenses ( Licensees ) who intend to bid should provide Auctioneer well in advance of the Auction Sale a photocopy of the license issued by their state s liquor authority. Licensees within the state of California should also provide a resale certificate. Lots purchased by licensees will be routed through a properly licensed California wholesaler, who will charge the applicable taxes and fees. Bidders/Buyers are cautioned that many states impose restrictions on the quantity of alcoholic beverages which may be purchased and brought into its jurisdiction from another state. In some instances, special permits or licenses may be required for the Buyer or shipper. Spectrum Wine Auctions assumes no responsibility for any required permits or licenses. If a Buyer pays the Purchase Price and all applicable Buyer s Expenses but fails to pick up a purchased lot within twenty-one (21) days of the Auction Sale, the lot will be stored at Spectrum Wine Auctions facility or with a third party at the Buyer s risk and expenses. Further, if such purchased lot is not picked up within six (6) months of the date of the Auction Sale, Buyer authorizes Spectrum Wine Auctions to arrange for a resale of the lot, either by auction or private sale, with reserves established at the Auctioneers discretion. All proceeds, less cost of sale and any unpaid applicable Buyer s Expenses, will be remitted to the Buyer. California residents will be charged sales tax as well as Bidders who pick up at the Auction without a valid Resale Certificate. On any tax not paid by Bidder which should have been paid, even if not collected by Spectrum Wine Auctions by mistake, error, negligence or gross negligence, Bidder agrees to promptly pay the same on demand together with any interest or penalty that may be assessed. 8. Financial Responsibility. In the event a Buyer fails to make payment when due, in addition to other remedies available to Auctioneer and the Seller by law, including without limitation, the right to hold the Buyer liable for the total Purchase Price, Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to rescind the sale or to resell the lot(s) in a commercially reasonable manner, which may include a public or private sale. Buyer agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale, together with any incidental costs of sale, including reasonable attorney s fees and costs, cataloguing and any other reasonable charges. Buyer grants to Spectrum Wine Auctions or its assignees the right to offset any sums due, or found to be due to Spectrum Wine Auctions or its affiliates, and to make such offset from any past, current, or future consignment, or purchases that are in the possession or control of Spectrum Wine Auctions or its affiliates; or from any sums due to Buyer from Spectrum Wine Auctions or its affiliates. In addition, a defaulting Buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Spectrum Wine Auctions and its affiliated companies, a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money of or owing to such Buyer in our possession or in the possession of any of its affiliated companies, and Spectrum Wine Auctions may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to us or to any of its affiliates. We shall have all of the rights accorded a secured party under the California Uniform Commercial Code. Such defaulting Buyer grants Spectrum Wine Auctions the right to file a UCC-1 financing statement for such items and to assign such interest to any affiliated or related company or any third party deemed appropriate by Spectrum Wine Auctions. If the auction invoice is not paid for in full when due per invoice terms, the unpaid balance will earn interest at the rate of one-and-onehalf percent (1-1/2%) per month until it is paid in full. In the event this interest rate exceeds the interest permitted by law, the same shall be adjusted to the maximum rate permitted by law, and any amount paid in excess thereof shall be allocated to principal. Buyer agrees to pay all reasonable attorney s fees, court costs and other collection costs incurred by Spectrum Wine Auctions or any affiliated or related company to collect past due invoices or to interpret or enforce the terms hereof or in any action or proceeding arising out of or related to the Auction Sale. Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to assign its interest to any third party. To the extent that the winning Bidder for any lot consists of more than one person or entity, each such person or entity is jointly and severally liable for all obligations of the Bidder, regardless of the title or capacity of such person or entity. 9. DISCLAIMER AND WARRANTIES. NO WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS MADE OR IMPLIED ON ANY LOT. NO WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, IS MADE WITH RESPECT TO ANY LOT EXCEPT FOR WARRANTY OF TITLE, AND IN THE CASE OF TITLE, THE AUC- TION IS SELLING ONLY THAT RIGHT OR TITLE TO THE LOT THAT THE SELLER MAY HAVE AS OF THE AUCTION SALE DATE. ALL LOTS ARE SOLD AS IS AND WITH ALL FAULTS. BUYER HEREBY ASSUMES ALL RISKS CONCERNING AND RELATED TO THE QUALITY, DESCRIPTION, CONDITION, AUTHENTICITY, AND PROVENANCE OF A LOT. 10. Waiver and Release. Bidder, for himself, his heirs, agents, successors and assignees, generally and specifically waives and releases, and forever discharges Spectrum Wine Auctions, and its respective affiliates, parents, shareholders, agents, subsidiaries, employees, officers, members of their respective boards of directors, and each of them, and their respective successors and assignees from any and all claims, rights, demands and causes of actions and suits, of whatever kind or nature, including but not limited to claims based upon Auctioneer s negligence, whether in law or equity, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, which Bidder may claim to 75

92 have with respect to and/or arising out of, or in connection with any challenge to the title to any goods purchased, the sale itself, any lot bid upon or consigned, and/ or the Auction Sale. It is the intention of Bidder that this waiver and release shall be effective as a bar to each and every claim, demand, cause of action and suit that may arise hereunder or be related to the Auction Sale, and Buyer hereby knowingly and voluntarily waives any and all rights and benefits otherwise conferred upon him by the provisions of Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which reads in full as follows: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATE- RIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR. 11. Disputes. If a dispute arises concerning ownership of a lot that has been bid upon or concerning proceeds of any sale, Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to commence a statutory inter-pleader proceeding at the expense of the Seller and successful Bidder and any other applicable party, and in such event shall be entitled to its reasonable attorneys fees and costs. Spectrum Wine Auctions reserves the right to cancel or postpone the Auction Sale or any session thereof for a reasonable period of time for any reason whatsoever. Neither Spectrum Wine Auctions nor any affiliated or related company shall be responsible for incidental or consequential damages arising out of any failure of the Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, the Auction Sale or the conduct thereof and in no event shall such liability exceed the purchase price, premium, or fees paid. If the Bidder fails to comply with one or more of these Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale, then, in addition to all other remedies which it may have at law or in equity, Spectrum Wine Auctions may at its sole option either (a) rescind the sale, retaining all payments made by Bidder as liquidated damages, it being recognized that actual damages may be speculative or difficult to compute, or (b) sell a portion or all of the lot(s) held by Spectrum Wine Auctions, in a quantity sufficient in the opinion of Spectrum Wine Auctions to satisfy the indebtedness, plus all accrued charges, and Spectrum Wine Auctions may sell such portion at an Auction Sale or private sale conducted by Spectrum Wine Auctions and charge a seller s commission that is commercially reasonable. More than one such sale may take place at the option of Spectrum Wine Auctions. Notice of the sale shall be by U.S.P.S. Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested to the address utilized on the Bid Sheet, Auction Consignment and Security Agreement or other last known address by Spectrum Wine Auctions. The proceeds shall be applied first to the satisfaction of any damages occasioned by Bidder s breach, then to any other indebtedness owed to Spectrum Wine Auctions, including without limitation, commissions, handling charges, the expenses of both sales, reasonable attorneys fees, costs, collection agency fees and costs and any other costs or expenses incurred. Bidder shall also be liable to Spectrum Wine Auctions if the proceeds of such sale or sales are insufficient to cover the indebtedness. Rights granted to Bidders under the within Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale are personal and apply only to the Bidder who initially purchases the lot(s) from Spectrum Wine Auctions. The rights may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, whether by sale of the lot(s), operation of law or otherwise. Any attempt to assign or transfer any such rights shall be absolutely void and unenforceable. No third party may rely on any benefit or right conferred by these Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale. 12. General Terms. These Terms and Conditions of Auction Sale and the auction shall be construed and enforced in accordance with, and governed by, the laws of the State of California, regardless of the location of the Auction Sale. Any dispute arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions of Sale, the Auction Sale or any lot, with the sole exception of actions by Spectrum Wine Auctions to collect the purchase price and other damages, shall be determined by arbitration in Orange County, California, before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. The arbitrator shall in the Award, allocate all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys fees of the prevailing party. The Arbitrator shall have the authority to award compensatory damages (as may be limited by these Terms and Conditions) and reasonable attorney s fees and cost to the prevailing party, but shall not have the power to award punitive or consequential damages or to amend, modify, expand or excuse performance of any material term of these Terms and Conditions. The arbitrator shall be required to follow applicable law. The parties acknowledge the arbitration shall have limited discovery as determined by the arbitrator, to be completed within one hundred twenty (120) days of the appointment of the arbitrator. The Arbitrator shall be required to return his decision no later than thirty (30) days after completion of the arbitration hearing and shall include a statement of the findings of facts. The award of the arbitrator may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. Bidder acknowledges and agrees that the competent courts of the State of California shall have exclusive jurisdiction, subject to the requirement to arbitrate, over any dispute(s) arising hereunder, regardless of any party s current or future residence or domicile. Bidder further agrees that venue shall be in the Superior Court in Orange County, in the State of California.
