Very Specific Napa Wineries

I would like to check out some wineries next week. I am looking for specific styles of wine. I want to see if I can find 2-3 wineries still making cabs or bordeaux blends in the old style. This means low alcohol levels <14%, and not big "Parker scoring fruit bombs" I have not been to NV in many years my old freliables were Stag's Leap and Caymus and Duckhorn. I have almost given up on California wine but last year Chowhounds helped to steer me to some great Pinot producers in Sonoma that are still letting the terrior come through. I know I have read some articles about how there is a small movement to return to an older style of winemaking but can't remember where it was. Thanks.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
