After lurking around these forums for the last few weeks, I just decided to join. I've been more into beer over the last couple years (same username on BeerAdvocate if any of you use that) but have recently been getting more excited about wine.
I live about an hour from Napa and Sonoma. I'm on the mailing lists of Beau Vigne and Checkerboard and would love to branch out a bit. I'm on the waitlist for most of the big boys around here (SQN, Scarecrow, Schrader, etc.) but am always on the lookout for lesser-known, quality wineries in the area for my wife and I to visit. If you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it (and can even pickup and send bottles to you at cost) -- we drink mostly cab and zin but are open to trying anything.
Thanks for reading. I'm looking forward to crossing paths with many of you.
