If someone asks me what Napa Cabs to get in the $40-75 range, I tell them to go get Carlisle and Bedrock Zins, instead. Most likely what they are looking, flavor and texture-wise, for Cab within that price range can be achieved in epic Zins by those producers.

I just joined this year and haven't been offered the Monte Bello yet. Perhaps because I'm brand new and yields appear to be down in 2018, they will wait until May to let me know. Any risk of not getting an allocation at all? I joined Jan 2017 and I'm in the camp that needs to wait til May to hear. ...
