I've liked the Guenoc line over the years...

I have too. Ever since a trip to California in 1988, when someone recommended we pair a bottle of their Cab with an Italian meal. That was wonderful--it was like drinking chianti in Tuscany--and I can't remember being disappointed by a single bottle since.

And I just saw a bottle of the 2004 Cab yesterday for $8.99. The prices have actually decreased a bit over the years. I was thinking: I wonder what makes a Napa wine, where the soil can change from acre to acre, even from vine to vine, so consistent across so many years. It must be the nose of the vintner for starters.

This is not a dot-com winery. There's no fancy price. The bills are long ago paid. I'll take it over half the $40+ bottles out of Napa.

Best to you,
