Any good places in Napa to taste cult cabs?

Will be dining in Napa soon, first night at French Laundry (FINALLY got reservations!), next night at Meadowood to check out the newest Michelin 3* in the area.

During the day I'd like to maybe do a tasting of some of the higher end wines, esp Cabs scoring 96-100 Parker points, like Harlan Estates (doubt they'll be serving it by the glass at Meadowood even though it's his restaurant) or Screaming Eagle etc.

Is there a wine bar or tasting place where we can do this (for a fee of course). Not looking for a tour, just a chance to taste some of these high end wines so I can see for myself what all the barking is about ... staying in Yountville but have wheels.

Thanks ... (I posted this on the Wines board too, sorry for double posting but I figure a lot of SF Bay area readers wouldn't necessarily be reading the Wine board daily)

The French Laundry
6640 Washington Street, Yountville, CA 94599
