Wines Less Traveled: Cabernet Sauvignon

The reason behind this list is I tend to see the same wineries on "Top Cab" lists on this website and everywhere else.  Now there's nothing wrong per se with Mondavi, Caymus, Silver Oak etc but to me they don't represent good value anymore and there are plenty of great top teir cabs out there that offer both high quality and high value.  This is a short but ever growing list of great wines that in a just world would be world famous but alas are not.  I am not limiting the list to any one region (as it grows it may need to be broken up) but it will focus more on "New World" examples.

4. World's End "Good Times Bad Times" Cabernet Sauvignon To Kalon Vineyard Oakville Napa Valley (2008)

Wait, I know what you're thinking but it's true. A Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cab for $100! Yes friends no more paying $300 for Paul Hobbs! World's End delivers on that great Oakville intensity but balances it with judicious but restrained oak with nice acidity to balance this heavy hitter. Black and blue fruits with nuances of spice, smoke, and earth. Big yet balanced, what more could you ask for. I plan to drink this come 12/21/12, even if the world doesn't end.
