I’ve got some big California names SQN Saxum Alban Marcassin Rhys outpost Aubert that I could offer in trade

Speaking of consistency- The other thing I really love about CdP is how unbelievably inconsistent it always is - every bottle is an adventure- like a brand new producer each time you open a bottle- is it clean is it Funky?! Who doesn’t like surprises?!

Btw I actually do like CdP

I assume we're talking Napa cabs. I've actually found the '14s at times too flamboyant - certainly when tasted side by side with the 13s and have preferred the latter.

I am also a huge 2010 fan.
