Any specific recommendations?

Chappellet Signature (easy #1)
Lewelling (for the "lush" factor you may have been describing)

I get what you are saying but I never found CA Cab to be particularly pleasurable at the lower levels, and certainly won't provide the same experience Caymus did. Personally, if I want to drink something from the U.S., I get far more pleasure out of a $9/750ml Allagash Grand Cru or Trippel than I do out of any $20 CA Cabs.


Agreed if you're limiting it to lower price points Cali cabs are not the way to go for everyday drinkers. Chile is where I head for low priced cabs.

As for Allagash, the Black is pretty great too and the FV 13 if you can find it and like sour beers. Not something id drink all the time but refreshingly different and very good.
