Back in business after a 2006 fire had them hawking their wares out of a temporary tasting room, this remodeled winery has long produced a renowned go-to cabernet for label-conscious big spenders. But it's got more to it than a notable name. Its focus on the big red varietal means its 30,000 annual case production is focused on fine Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon. (An additional 70,000 cases are produced annually at their Alexander Valley winery in Geyserville.) Tastings in their Mediterranean-style tasting room, which include a keepsake bordeaux glass, are $10. No picnic facilities are available.
