I have seen a few threads on here regarding wine trips, however, I am interested in finding "hidden gems." Basically wines that I can't just buy at my local store. For example, Silver Oak makes a good Cab, but you can get that anywhere. Same with Joseph Phelps, Nickel and Nickel, Cakebread etc.
We particularly like Russian River and Sonoma Pinot's, Napa Cabs and are certainly open to whites but they are not usually our top choices.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
(and I will report back in order to provide feedback for other people!)
