Napa Cab under $100

#1 Post by Ben M a n d l e r »

Hi everyone,

I know this is a played-out topic but I have a specific question so I’m hoping I can tap the collective wisdom here.

It’s about a month until my wife’s 30th birthday. She loves Napa cabs, but we barely ever drink them at home (in part because of price, in part because she humors my predilection for the weird and far-flung). I’d like to get her something special to drink on her birthday. My constraints are:

(1) Under $100 (this is a semi-firm limit. 110 or 120 would be doable if it’s really worth it; 150-200 wouldn’t).
(2) Drinking well now, preferably without a huge decant
(3) Available to purchase in the next month
(4) Her tastes - I‘ll confess to not being an expert in the differences between Napa cabs. What I can tell you is that she has enjoyed La Jota, Mayacamas, Newton, Hall, Robert Craig Affinity, Mt Veeder, Alpha Omega. She also doesn’t have much of a taste for old wine. I’d say under 20 years is safest (probably can’t afford older anyway).

Thanks!
ITB

Have a look at 2015 Pilcrow Pym-Rae Cabernet. It is $95, and the peak of Mt. Veeder. I have had it, and really liked it.

The Pym-Rae vineyard was owned by Robin Williams, and as I understand it the fruit was sold to multiple wineries. In late 2015 Alfred Tesseron of Pontet-Canet fame bought the winery, and began making their own wine. (The 2016 release of the Tesseron Pym-Rae is expexted this fall.)

So, the Pilcrow is one of the last wines made from Pym-Rae before Tesseron took it over. Makes for a cool story, and is a very good wine (IMHO)...

Recently saw some back vintages fo Chateau Montelena "Estate" cab from the 2000's for around $110. See K&L website, they have a handful. I'm not at all a Napa cab drinker normally (so can't give other recommendations), but these seem like a decent value as far as Napa goes and already have some age on them. Gave the 2005 a shot and enjoyed it. Old world leaning stylistically.

This one is easy. Frogs Leap 2016 Estate Cab (current release) is $65.00 and for me tastes way better than most Napa Cabs costing 2X or more.

FWIW, Jonah Beer VP at Frog's Leap, and his wife, Sara, are the winemakers of Pilcrow.

Are you looking for more old school traditional Napa, or fruit forward, lush, but quality Napa cabs?

A few options more old school:

Corison Napa Valley (around $100), can order from the winery if there aren't local options
Chappellet Signature (around $60 in my area)
Frog's Leap (around $60 in my area)

Go get the 2011 Dunn Howell Mountain. It appears to be available on the K&L website for $99. That is a steal for a wine of this caliber.

Hall Eighteen Seventy Three vineyard is a great cab at $75 via wine.com. One of the few instances where wine.com has the best price. Drinks above its price point, drinking well now and from a producer you know she likes. Enjoy!

Chappellet signature. About $60.
If you have access to total wine, use this coupon 2328 for 20% off of 6 bottles.

Another option is the chateau montrose 2015 in costco for $99.97. They should have 2 in the Santa Rosa costco.

Second votes on Outpost, Corison, Hidden Ridge 55% Slope, and Bevan Ontogeny. Others to consider: Riverain, Lewis, Myriad, Quivet, Rivers Marie, Chiron Candor, Kobalt, Aonair, Paradigm, Kamen.

Grab that 2011 Dunn at KL if still available.

Doesn’t need to age ?
Doesn’t need to decant ?

I've have and have tasted every Mending Wall cab since 2012 and they've been nice right out of the gate, except the '13 which understandably needed some time. Loved the '15 most of all. All under $100

+1 on a couple references to Outpost.

Would also recommend the regular Napa bottling of Rivers Marie as well as the regular bottling of 12C...both are consistently solid.

I also concur with Bevan Ontageny ($95) and they drink well young. Over the past several months, I've drank the 2014, 2015 and 2016 and all are a delicious bourdeaux blend that drink very well with a decant. It is my personal favorite wine under $100. I recently joined the Rivers Marie allocation list and own some of the cabs but I haven't drank any yet. However, I am a big fan of TRB and have no concerns that the Rivers Marie won't be great. Good luck finding a bottle and all suggestions so far have looked great!

The 2016 Rivers-Marie Napa Cab (base bottling) is drinking very well at the moment, as well! So much so, that I've drunk through my allocation and had to seek out more on the secondary market. The 2016 Lore was very good too, but built for the long haul (and over $100).

Surprising that nobody has mentioned Drinkward Peschon. Wine Searcher shows plenty of slightly older vintages available well under $100, including the very ready right now 2009, 2007, and 2005:

https://www.wine-searcher.com/find/drin ... 09/usa/usd

Both K&L and Flickinger show bottles from those vintages, and are resellers who get positive reviews here all the time.

With neighbors such as Bryant, Ovid and Continuum at $250+ per bottle and garnering the same scores, there really isn't a better Napa Valley Cabernet for less than $70 as Chappellet Signature Cab.

Agree on O'Shaughnessy NV. Tasted this at the winery in March and was wow'd by it. This wine in the cellar is a good problem to have.

Understood . . . in that case, a cab that has not yet been mentioned: 2015 Shafer "One Point Five" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon which is listed at $89.95 at K&L. Some of the reviews suggest its a drink now or wait until your wife's 40th birthday type of wine. Good luck with your decision and happy birthday to your wife.

Jean Edwards Stagecoach is great is like $70ish.
Rivers-Marie Napa ($75 iirc) and Calistoga ($95 iirc) are great, although perhaps less easy to find at release prices.
Smith Madrone is like $55, easy to source and very very good as well.
