Big $$$ in wine doesnt always mean great taste and nose.

Go for Silver Oaks at Costco for $60 or so.

That's good enough. It's a big cab.

The thought and the value will impress.

You're not going to impress a wine affcianado with something more expensive that you found here on mb.com from some guy that eats and shits taco bell...and talks about it.coming and going.

Yeah, I agree but for this purpose (long story) it was more about a special occasion kinda thing then really getting him a tasy wine for the buck if that makes sense!

Well, we had to cancel tbh because of his health. I can go more into it on the other board if you'd like, but outcome was not good (ie worst possible outcome).
