Without knowing preferences or whether for immediate consumption or cellaring, I say Mondavi Reserve.

WOW, thanks, that was fast. Not for cellaring, we will pop it next month. This is for a 6 bottle taste off, winner only gets bragging rights (along with some really good wine). Does not have to be 100%, just meet the country of origins requirement to call it Cab. Can be from anywhere in the world.

Myriad Three Twins sells aftermarket on the low end of that range if you can find any. Very nicely done New World style.

Chateau Montelena Estate also can be found on the low end of your budget and is a little more old school than Myriad.

Wow. Well that changes everything.

Can you provide some feedback around the general style preferences of those that are tasting and what their overall 'experience' with wine is (i.e. how geeky are we talking here)

Quilceda would be good for a taste off.

Corison, although might not do well against in-your-face big boys.

Good call on the 2010 Myriad ‘Three Twins’. That’s a fantastic wine that’s drinking super well at the moment and would likely have broad appeal.

Leoville Barton, if it meets your qualification. At 77% it would meet US rules.

There will be 6 of us. 4 of the other 5 I have never met & know nothing about them. The person hosting the tasting is a grower/winemaker of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon.

I'll second jflegler's recommendation.

2010 Forman

There may be three or four 2010's it's equal, but none better.

nother vote for Forman. Not sure it is ready. And similarly not quite ready, and needs a good decant, You might also consider Beringer PR.

Just tasted a bunch of wines in this range, blind, last night. The clear stand-out, wotn by acclamation, was the 2013 Di Costanza Farella, which you can actually find for a touch <$100. It beat wines by T-R-B and Mike Smith (neither of which were shabby), as well as a somewhat older Ridge (which might have been a tired, if not downright off bottle). Beautiful complexity, so smooth on the palate, with a lovely finish: dirt, red fruits, clove, game, the whole package.

Good to know, I had planned on holding my ‘13’s for awhile longer yet. May I ask how much air you gave it?

Sure, Eric,
It was opened about 45 minutes before the tasting and we got to it about half an hour in, so 75 minutes altogether, no decant. It was way more giving than the one I popped a couple of years back.'
Enjoy!
