Hess Collection Mount Veeder 19 Block Cuvée - 2005
I have now had this wine twice at The Barrel Thief ($9 a glass and $27 a bottle). The blend is superb with a hearty mouth feel. It's the taste that comes to my mind when a Napa meritage is mentioned.
And The Barrel Thief's price is great. The Hess website sells it for $36.
