Don't know the wine, and to be honest don't know all
that much about California wines. I have learned a 
bit about reasonably-priced French wines since being
here. Bordeaux are as overpriced here as they are 
anywhere else, but there are other regions, and 
"finds" that are truly remarkable. With a little 
searching and tasting, one can find a wine for three 
to five Euros that is vastly superior to wines that 
cost ten times that. 

One region I like a lot here (and that I visited 
while on my recent Road Trip) is the Fitou valley
in Languedoc. Remarkable. The entire region 
(Corbieres) is known for its wines, but rarely
for its outstanding wines. But there is this one
valley that is kind of a secret, because the wine
lovers of Southern France don't want all of the
year's production being shipped off up North or
overseas. So they don't tell anyone that they've
got a world-class valley on their hands, and keep
the majority of the local production local. :-)
