Understanding Napa (and Sonoma) Cab via /r/wine

Understanding Napa (and Sonoma) Cab

So I've recently decided to take the plunge into the more costly area of Napa and Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon and blends. I haven't had many napa cabs just because of the sheer price of entry, but I want to have a better grasp of the stylistic differences between more elegant and hedonistic styles and everything inbetween. I've had some old bordeaux on wine pairings and those were good, but for napa I'd say I'm a fan of Corison and Chateau Montelena. I've had a 1992 Robert Mondavi reserve which was beautiful too. But I don't think I've tried anything hedonistic or bombastic.
Basically, can someone recommend relatively affordable options so I can get a clearer sense of the style I'm interested in? Thank you for the help!
Edit: $50-$120 range
