Napa Valley Wine Auction 2000

The 20th annual Napa Valley
Wine Auction raised a record-breaking $9.5 million.

..."Competition was stiff for dozens of other auction offerings. For example, Adams (the same Adams that bought the 1999 Diamond Creek offering) had to fight off a considerable throng to land Diamond Creek Vineyards big bottle collection of tiny Lake Vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Barely three-quarters of an acre, the Lake site produces exceptional fruit that vintner Al Brounstein in exceptional years makes into a couple of barrels --one that's sold off and another that's set aside for charity. Sold for$120,000, this lot included a 9-liter bottle of the 1992 Lake cab, plus 3-liter bottles from the 1994, 1996 and 1997 harvests.
