Although I am likely to be castigated by fellow wine bloggers for this, I thought I would go ahead and do it anyway! 95 point Napa Valley Cabernets for under $100. On first glance there is just so much wrong with that sentence.
It was hoped by many that 2012 would be the year consumers would learn to think for themselves and stop buying wine based on points. So being a bit of a contrarian I just couldn’t help myself.
I thought it might be fun for wealthy wine nerds to have a wine party (and invite me). Everyone would need to bring a bottle of wine. A wine rated 95 points or higher, and priced at under $100.
SO…without any flavor profiles or any context what so ever, here are 3 wines that would suffice:
2007 Clark-Caludon Estate Cabernet:
Rating: 95 points Robert Parker
2008 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet
rating: 95 points, Robert Parker
2007 Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cabernet
Rating: 96 Points, Robert Parker
Did I miss any? What wines would you put on the list?
