small winery recs in healdsburg? alexander valley? been to dry creek

i know lots of people ask this question, but hopefully my specifics help.

In a week in a half, my wife and I'll heading up to Healdsburg. We are going to Barndiva Friday night, and Cyrus Saturday. So, we have our dinner covered! Next decision...wineries.

We went to Dry Creek Valley 2 years ago and here's what we liked:
-Unti - loved their petite syrah
-dry creek vineyard - mariner (a great cab/merlot blend)
-preston - loved the L. Preston (rhone style blend) and the madam preston (I don't care for whites, but I liked that)

the zin at Bella was decent...but, we didn't love the winery itself. Too commercial for us.

So, yeah...we love the small wineries, and we love our big reds. Any recommendations of other wineries we should check out in the healdsburg area, based on our past experience? How is the Alexander Valley area? some friends of ours (who we trust) didn't like Stryker.

thanks in advance!
