I have had my share of all types of wines but I simply enjoy the mouthfeel of a bold Napa Cab. I also enjoy the powerful CdP's as well.
I get the impression from this forum that once a person "grows up" in their wine age that they shun New World and sip primarily Old World offerings...
I think you may be getting me wrong as Napa Cab is predominantly what is in my cellar. Good Napa Cab mind you.
The thing is, these tasting are boring. How many times do you want to drink a Silver Oak Napa or Pahlmeyer? How many times do you need to drink a Chateau Montelena Estate or Caymus SS?
Isn't part of tasting broadening your horizons? So I know they will have the same old stuff and I will bring something different to the table rather than more of the same.
I do believe Cab is king but part of appreciating wine is appreciating the variety of wine out there.
