Do you like their single vineyards (spring release) or their blends (fall release)?

I am a huge fan of Realm, and really like the style. I am on the list, however I am wanting more. I believe their wines are fantastic and for the current list price, are a absolute steal. Are there any other vineyards with similar style and cost?
