Featured Lots for the 26th Annual Rare & Fine Wine Auction

The 26th Annual Rare & Fine Wine Auction is really living up to its reputation this year! The Foundation is proud to present three bottles of the 2007 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Savignon. Screaming Eagle is the finest & rarest collectible collectible Cult Cabernet in the world. Only a few precious bottles exist and are selling as high as $3,500 in some parts of the country. Robert Parker rated it 100 points and calls it "the most profound Screaming Eagle since the 2002 and 1997". A bottle of the 2007 Screaming Eagle is a must-have for the wine collector.

Also on the Auction block is a Private Wine Tasting for 6 at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. Six guests will enjoy a unique visit to the Joselph Phelps Vineyards for a private, high-end tasting (typically reserved for Phelps preferred members). The tasting will feature a selection of their current releases including their flagship wine, Insignia. Since the release of the 1990 vintage, Insignia has been produced estate-grown grapes from two of the most desirable sources for Cabernet Savignon, Rutherford Bench and the Stags Leap District.

Join us on Saturday, April 16th to see these items (and many other greats) up for Auction!
