David Stevens at 750 Wines turned me on to the first release by a new Cab producer on Mt. Veeder called Scully. Helen Keplinger is the winemaker, and David had the 2006 innaugural release at $35. I haven’t been a 2006 vintage cheerleader, but this was a rich and powerful mountain cab built to age - but with the velvet mouthfeel and fruit to drink now. Really liked it and how often do you find a Napa cab you really like at $35? A wow from me.
Thanks for the welcome. Unfortunately I have never been a beach boy (but I have had much better luck around water). As for Scully, I know nothing about the project other than Helen’s name is on the back, it tastes awfully good, and I liked it better than a lot of wines I recently tried at double and triple the price.
Did you grab the '06 Shafer 1.5 for $35ish?
How about the '05 Two Hands Charlies for $35? (Me and my friends cleared those out very fast indeed).
Any '06 Rockledge Rocks for $28?
Snowden Ranch from '07 for $38?
Grab any of that '02 St. Helena Winery Sympa, (made by M Herold), for $35 from winebid? Thunk not.
btw, the Bennett Lane Turn 4 is on WTSO right now for $17. It’s available locally to me for $19.40 after 10% case discount + 7% taxes, so it’s not a screaming deal, but it’s a very good house red quaffer. Just grabbed 4 more.
