Thanks. Great list. Very interesting. I would not include some of the wines in the classification because they are too new, but that doesn't make them bad. It also identifies a few wines I have to check out. Dana Estates and Tor I've never had. Ugh. All I need is another expensive Cali Cab. I was on the original Dana list but never bought because I drew the line a bit below their price point at the time.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!

Not much mention of Maybach in this thread. They certainly fall under "cult" status, therefore would be a Classified Growth by this thread's hypothetical definition, given that their secondary market price is twice or more of release price.
Reallly? Double or more on release price ?

Feels like two threads here and maybe needs to be broken out

1. Classification of Napa- hard to imagine that you can put folks on this list with a sub 10 year track record at a minimum
2. Cult List- which would be more dynamic given how often it changes

2013 and 2014 are twice or more if you check Wine Searcher.

If anyone is paying that for Maybach I would suspect a money laundering scheme :-)
