Recommendations for an oaky Cab Login/Join

I like oaky red wines. Looking far recommendations for an oaky Cabernet Sauvignon at a moderate price. $35 or less. The wine guides that I find online are mostly useless.

a little beyond your price range ($55 per 750) but for a special occasion, try Heitz Cellar's Napa Valley Cab Sauv.

Thanks for the tip. I might have to splurge.

The place where I buy most of my stuff offers a 10% discount for 6-bottle purchases of wine/liquor (any mix). And another 10% off on Sr. Citizen Tuesday, so that brings the price down to $44. I can always use some more 10 yo tawny port and Bushmills Blackbush Irish whiskey (to hit the 6-bottle discount).

I liked this one, but don’t typically look for oaky as a primary taste factor in cabs.

The place where I buy my adult beverages has dozens of Cabs, but it doesn’t have the Heitz Cellar Cab.

I’m beginning to appreciate what a wonderful bargain Tawny Port is. Taylor Fladgate and Dow’s are both superb 10 yo wines, and I can buy either for $35/750 ml bottle (prior to the discounts that I can wrangle). And I love both of ‘em. Will stick with those.

And Port keeps good for at least two days after opening.

I agree about tawnies. Used to tend bar in a high-end steak joint in Boston and we carried several ports in different styles and price ranges. I thought the tawnies were the best value. Of course, when on occasion I would get to sample a good vintage... well, that was nearly orgasmic. But not necessarily good $ value.

Also a bit more than you were looking to spend, but I really enjoy the cabernets from Silver Oak.
