Good article, I'll chip in with my votes in a few...

I'm in with Ghost Block and Scarecrow. I've gotten to try both of those and really enjoy them.

Other then them, I'd add in Kosta Browne and Sea Smoke as two cult Pinot producers. Both of them are not that 'new'.

We put a funny statement on the back of our 07 Harvest T-Shirts that read:

More Cultivation, Less Cult.

Cult wines built the Napa (California) brand(s), god bless 'em, but the affordable, drinkable wines will promote its legacy.

I saw that article, pretty interesting. Personally, the term "cult wine" has become synonymous for lack of value... but that's neither here nor there.

I don't know if it counts for cult status, but my current favorite would be Herman Story/McPrice Myers

I'd be interested of hearing about some European Cult wines ... the only one I can think of is Gaja. Or maybe that is just expensive wine! ;-)
