Raphael contributed two different very special large-format bottles, a 3.0L 2002 First Label Merlot and a 6.0L 2007 First Label Merlot. This lot is the 2007, and they made barely a handful of these special large bottles. Retail value is $500.00 for the juice, if you multiply 750ml by eight, but actual value for this rare bottle is higher.
Opening bid is $250.00. Minimum bid increment $20.00.
[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Once a bit of time has passed, and people really know about Wine for Haiti, lots will go live AND HOT. Every item will got “hot” if bidding reaches retail value. 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, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., 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.]
