Second on the Massican recommendation, best SB I’ve tasted in a long time. While the winery does not make cab, the owner/winemaker is also the winemaker at Larkmead if that is somehow relevant.

Either. If you only have one of each, I might hold a few, or at least try the 09. I had a 10 recently, and that’s a more structured vintage, and it was excellent.
