    Massive IMO. Napa all the way. Alexander is over-oaked.

    Not surprised. Silver Oak, Opus One, that's the trendy stuff from Napa.

    2013 Silver Oak... love it. I don't care if people say Silver Oak is overrated it's IMO one of the best expressions of Cali Cab.

    If you are into something different, give a Tignanello a shot. Italian wine made of mostly Sangiovese with some Cabernet sprinkled in. Not cheap but excellent:

    Sadly the only Daou around here is this one. Think i posted a few pages back. Good but not as deep as 1858 from Caymus. For the price, i havent found a better bottle. Too bad, its out of stock.

    One thing Ive noticed, stuff from Paso Robles so good and affordable.

    Cali

    howell mountain , Napa valley. I honestly don’t even remember which one or which trip but my wife insists it was the trip when my daughter was first born and we brought her mom to watch our daughter . We just switched off at the end of the day so she could enjoy wine. I totally need to get out there again. My friend was begging me to work for Icon Aircraft so we could just live near wine country . Lol, he didn’t last that long before he found another job. Glad i didn’t move everyone out there.

    Indeed it is. Great wineries there.

    Santa Ynez (Santa Barbara) is an even better value...

    Well, I finally got on the Sine Qua Non list. Only took 13 years: https://www.sinequanonwine.com/

    Just purchased my first allocation. I had the privilege of spending $1500 for 6 bottles or I would be removed from the list.

    Holy hell is this juice expensive but my wine collection just stepped up big time with this stuff in the cellar.

    Best of luck ever getting your hands on one of these bottles or getting a taste for that matter. By far the harder list to get on in the wine world:

    Did they at least ship it to you for free or for $1? I keep getting calls and emails about “specials” these last two months from all the places we visited a year ago. I hope that the wine is really good. After trying to finish off some cases of wine , I am starting to feel like I’ve found some better ones in the $25-30 range . So Ive cancelled all of our auto shipments. It gets pretty expensive when the cases are getting up to $500. I can’t imagine paying $1500 for 6! I’ll read up on the Sine Qua Non.

    There is great stuff in the $25-30 range. Especially in Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez.

    There really isn't much info on Sine Qua Non. It's unicorn wine.

    Randomly ran into this and was pleasantly surprised. Drinks like double the price ($18-$20):

    2015 Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon. Definitely pick it up if you want something under $20 that punches above its price range.

    I’m not as fancy as you all, but when we went to Lodi this past summer, Prie was by far my favorite winery. Their Zins and this Carignan were fantastic (IMHO). Broke out our last bottle of Carignan this weekend.

    Ok I’m even a little jealous.

    I think some wine and a steak is what’s in store for my night now.

    2016 is another epic year for wine. Especially California Cab but pretty much everything.

    Keep in mind 2015 is early drinking (meaning you can have it now) but 2016 needs time to show what it can do:

    Not sure if you guys have heard of this one, it's a Malbec by Caymus:

    Just ordered half a case. Will update with tasting notes.

    Thanks. Users rated pretty high. A tad pricey but not too bad.

    Malbecs never develop in the glass. They are like IPA in beers. Nothing ever happens.

    Pretty true but Malbecs do tend to offer good value and great fruit if not complexity.

    Malbecs are usually earthy because of the lava rock and soil. At least the ones from South America . I assume if it is grown in the US that the berry flavor would be more pronounced than the earth/dirt flavor.
