Thank you, this is what I was going to say.
I would consider a petite syrah, do you have access to a Turley Hayne for instance?
I do not not, looking into it.
A Martinelli Zin might be worth a look - Jackass Hill is probably not available but Jackass Vineyard or Guiseppe & Luisa might work.
I must admit, this post caused me to truly gasp for my breath.
There are truly FAR better ports in the world.
Leviathan or Passenger.
Whenever I know someone loves big 'ole fruitbombs, they rarely are disappointed by either of these
Cayuse and Kosta Browne seems right in that neighbourhood.

Well if you want something like Clio but higher end, the obvious answer seems like El Nido.
Agree - about the only thing these go with are chocolate and a hot tub but they are fruit bombs
Well, I have at least always enjoyed chocolate and hot tubs.
While I have enjoyed my share of Martinelli zins through the years, I would not enter one into the group of Cal cab aficionados....or a W+A event.
big calif wine......to name a few:
switchback ridge cab or ps
robert foley claret
lewis rsrv cab
quilceda creek (not calif but...big)
Thank you, Linne Calodo deserves more credit.
I have most of these in my cellar I'm trying to branch somewhat out of California for this particular bottle.
big fruit forward wine outside napa.....maybe some spanish wine?
bodegas el nido jumilla el nido
I see you asked about Flor de Pingus elsewhere. It is good, the Emilio Moro I mentioned is better.
For your purposes, I like ricky's suggestion of Termanthia.
Also, maybe Aalto PS? I've never had it, but he's the former wine maker at Vega Sicilia.

Ditto for the Amon Ra. Also Torbreck Descendant around the $100 range.

Sans Leige, Terry Hoage, Cypher.. But none are at that $100 barrier.
All out of Paso.
Brian Loring's homage to the El Nido, "Divergence", hits at the $100 level.
"Big fat" non-CA wines under $100:
D'Arenberg Dead Arm
Glaetzer Amon Ra
Mollydooker Carnival Of Love
Beat me to it.
