I have had 2 bottles of the 04' Shafer HSS in the last month and they were amazing.

Montelena - a bottle of the '91 was my all-time favorite wine (with an '89 Lynch Bages right behind).

I got it. And agree.

Can't pin down a favorite. In recent years my favorite QPR has been Jones Sisters. Schraders have utterly blown me away at times, more consistently than Scarecrow or Maybach. Abreu is at the top, too.

Haven't had too many DCs, especially lately. Would you still say they are producing top-tier wines?
