1989 birthday Bordeaux recommendations

Hi all!

I am dead set on buying an 89 Bordeaux for my birthday this year, 89 being the year of my birth. A colleague who has his own cellar and is very into French wines suggested Chateau Cantemerle as an affordable vintage bordeaux that would age well. The problem is, there isn't any available in my area according to Wine Searcher (NYC) and I don't feel comfortable shipping wine from California in the summer heat cross country. not to mention, I can't see the condition of the bottle prior to purchase.

with that in mind, are there any other producers I should look out for? I'm not looking to spend more than $150 on this, but I thought it would be a fun birthday gift to myself.

Thank you so much in advance!
