Thanks for the note. I had never had any, but the reviews here and on CT lead me to a cab tasting where it was poured, very impressed. There really is a lot of great wine at this price. Also on sale that night just over $35.00 was Robert Craig Affinity,good as well.
I forgot about Hardin...a sort of off-brand I think that is real good.

Also, I cannot find the 2007 Tapestry locally here, only the 2006 Everywhere. Don't really want to ship from out of town this time of year.I bought pretty much every vintage till the cellar taint period BV had a while back.

Did find the Honig 2007 and stocked up just this morning.

I am a very much cheapskate, (no, I really am) and haven't bought Napa cabs for years until the 07's.

Quite happy with the current stash of Hardin, Honig, and Robert Mondavi.

Another good luck on that price. If you can get it there, stock up. Great wine.

2007 St. Clement is a bargain.
2007 Beringer KV Cab (yes, I know it isn't Napa, is great juice for under $20)
2007 Nine Points is very nice for under $20 - get it on sale - don't pay more than $20.
The Round Pond was nice, around $38 in Houston. Others would be the 2007 Avalon $12, very popular during Christmas parties everyone seems to love it, as well as the Educated Guess but the stores are running out of the 2007. But my fave is Caravan $32, really hitting its stride, an espresso-mocha version of Napa cab. The Mondavi is nice, will have to try the BV Rutherford.
Interesting comments from the others so far. For some I would agree (Honig) while others less so (ZD). And if you can by '07 Groth Cab under $30 please let me know where? I'll buy all they have!

The one that I would recommend is called Gnarly Head. It's sold in grocery stores here in Texas for about $12~$15 per bottle. Surely not the highest of quality but a good QPR.
