I’m guessing Bennett Lane Napa Valley Cabernet. Located in Calistoga, estate Lynch Family vineyard in Calistoga, last vintage or two are listed at $65, 30% new French oak.

Re: de Negoce offer

I think #107 lines up well with Goosecross's "Petit Petite". $95, 50% Petite Sirah, 50% Syrah, 100% New French Oak. Many of the tasting notes line up. The winery sits on State Lane road right by Kapscandy and Cliff Lede. The only thing that doesn't line up is Cam said this Petite comes fro...

Popped N.42 Bordeaux blend/primarily cabernet. Believed to be 2018 Boeschen. Triple decanted and poured immediately after. This wine is FANTASTIC. Not $125 good, but I’d be happy with this if I paid $75, maybe a bit more. It is definitely young, but is surprisingly drinkable. There is a lot of upsid...
