I am looking for new wines to try, searching for new wines on places like CellarTracker is daunting to say the least. I am mostly interested in reds with an emphasis on cabs and cab blends. Not a big fan of wines with more than 35% Merlot. Most of the wines I have tried are generally Washington and Napa cabs but I have become curious about French Bordeaux however I know very little about them.
If you could name off say 3 wines in the $50-$75 range that would be more of drink with friends or just at home by the fire / dinner wine and 1 wine that is in the $75-$150 for a special occasion wine.
