Mendocino Music Festival Silent Auction Wine Offerings
July 20 Ledford House Dinner
This year as part of our Silent Auction at the Ledford House Dinner on July 20 we are very fortunate to have 12 bottles of wine from the extensive wine cellar of Clayt Daley. Each year, Clayt and his wife, Meredythe, contribute many important wine lots to Winesong, the Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation's annual charity auction. These lots sell for several thousands of dollars each. Now you, the generous supporters of the Mendocino Music Festival, have a chance to acquire some lovely wines from the Daley collection, thanks to their own generosity and support of the Festival, through the donation of the wines listed below. Take this opportunity to add a bottle or several to your collection!
2004 Lazy Creek – Pinot Noir – Anderson Valley
2005 Lazy Creek – Pinot Noir – Anderson Valley
The Lazy Creek wines were made by Josh and Mary Beth Chandler who made some of the best wine this property has produced. The Pinots had very low yelds – about 1½ tons per acre – very concentrated.
Dalla Valle – 1993 – Cabernet Sauvignon – Napa Valley
Robert Parker gave this wine 93 points in 1996 and said that it would easily last for another 20 years. It is ready to be enjoyed now.
Glaetzer Godolphin – 2004 – Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon – Australia
Robert Parker gave this wine 96/98 points and called it a “nearly perfect wine.” It is 70% Shiraz from 105 – 115 year old vines and 30% Cabneret Sauvignon from 60 – 90 year old vines.
Clarendon Hills – 2002 – Syrah – Moritz Vineyard – Australia
Robert Parker gave this wine 95 points and said it would last until 2021. However, it is ready to be enjoyed anytime between now and then. Why wait!?
