I have enjoyed the 07 Honig and stocked up, and have bought some of the 07 Round Pond, but I have not yet tried it. Another that I have tried and liked enough to pick up almost a case is the B V Tapestry Reserve. It is a mostly cabernet Bordeaux blend, and can be found all over for 29.99 on sale. I have not tried a Turnbull cab in years, but have been looking for the 07. I think this is an interesting price point, very affordable, but the better wines here offer interest and complexity that most QPRs below this range do not. I hope you get lots of responses.

I still need to try the 07 BV Rutherford, but I'm sure it's another good QPR.

Hey Ryan, You know you can still get the Merryvale Starmont at Spectrum mall Costco for 9.97. For that price I love the stuff :-)
With the number of recommendations for the BV Tapestry, I'll have to give it another try. I used to be a regular buyer in the mid 90s, but seemed to run into more than a few off bottles. I drank my last two '97s a few months apart a couple of years ago. The first one tasted way past it's prime. When I opened the last one I wasn't too hopeful, but it tasted great with plenty of life left.

I've started working my way through some of the suggestions on this thread to stock up.

First up was an 07 BV Rutherford, compared against the second half (opened last night) of an 07 Stefania Chaine d'Or. While I feel the 07 Stefania's need more time than the previous couple of vintages, the BV came across as more disjointed and thinner than the Stefania. One down, many more to go.
haven't had it yet, but 6 of these just arrived(also along with more Round Pond Razz):
2006 wallis family estate diamond mountain cab

Wine Enthusiast,
"A superior Cabernet that shows, first and foremost, Diamond Mountain's famous tannins. They make the mouthfeel a little hard, but the wine is so rich in blackberries and plums, you hardly notice. Beautiful now, with decanting, and should develop for six years." 92 points
