2016 Myriad Cellars Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard 'Elysian'

I don't know why you'd ever spend more if you want that Cult Cali Cab profile. Every bit as good as a Harlan etc... As much as I love the N.Rhones etc. and the weird wines that vinoevelo and I bond over, sometimes when you're at an old fashioned steakhouse (in this case Barberians), having a 14oz bone-in strip, garlic bread, fixed-up baked potato etc, nothing fits better than a huge Californian Cabernet.  

We're in sync here, Rob. A big Cali Cab definitely scratches an itch I get now and then. Even more often, I get the itch for a Cali Cab with 20-30 years of age on it, especially to accompany some dead cow on the BBQ and grilled potatoes.

As for Myriad, I bought the 2013, 14 and 16 lineups (not sure what happened in 2015) but have now stopped because, well, I've just stopped buying wines in general that need another 15+ years before they're in my wheelhouse.
