Top cabs/PN picks to bring back home (US to ITA) ?
I'll be traveling to the US in August, thought I might grab some cabs and PN from California/Oregon. I'm in Italy and I can only get the main brands (Mondavi, FFC, Ravenswood, Clos du Bois, …) when at home.
I'll be in an area where Total Wine will be my choice. While I am willing to spend up to $80-ish per bottle, I would not mind at all finding some interesting samples in a lower price tier. Not a big fan of oak, and I have proper storage, so waiting a few years to pop a bottle is an option.
Can you name the top three or four bottles I should absolutely bring back from minor wineries or that I would not find overseas ? Vintages to go for/avoid ? Pitfalls ?
