Looking to buy 2 bottles for ~$200. Typically drink red and am always between Napa Cabs and Chateauneuf du Pape. What should I get?

2014 Robert Sinskey Commander Zinskey. For having the age and 15.4% ABV it’s held up well and has softened up since the last bottle 2 years ago. This house is known for quality wine.

Big fan of this one. Not super bold. More velvety. Subtle leathery taste, hints of vanilla! I picked up a half case for 120, or $20 a bottle! I may actually buy more. 8/10 for price and taste. Very elegant.
