“A blend this year of four of our very favorite vineyards: Weber, Winderlea, Temperance Hill and Daffodil Hill. The first two offer gorgeous Dundee Hills red fruit, floral elegance and exotic spice; th latter two from teh Eola hills bringing on blue notes, earthiness, structure.” R. Stuart & Co.

[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Every item will got “hot” if bidding reaches retail value. Otherwise, it will go hot after 7 days. Once hot, each lot is on a 24-hour cycle, ending at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If a lot goes a full 24 hours without a new bid, the last bid in the comments wins. If we get into a bidding war, with the same people going back and forth, one day at a time, we will post something in the comments of that Auction Lot and schedule a time to bid to the death, at a time mutually agreeable to everybody involved.]
