To say Tony Biagi is a Robert Parker Darling is an understatement. During his tenure at Plumpjack, CADE, et al) Parker rained down a tirade of 98 and 99 point scores on Tony’s wines – easily justifying the $300 to $800 price tags.
His 2012 departure for Hourglass was felt throughout the valley with many unsure about the future. Those doubts have been squashed now, as critics have continued to rave, with this year’s Cab returning Tony to the rarefied air of 98 points yet again.
Now that Vinous Media named Tony Biagi their winemaker of year in 2020 – the cat is completely out of the bag and one of the drop dead best values in all of Napa has steadily risen in price, now a well-deserved $50 a bottle. Still a steal for one of the drop dead best values in all of Napa.

Showing the quality of this vintage, the 2016 HG III is a big, opulent, incredibly sexy effort that boasts a deep purple color and terrific notes of black cherries, chocolate, dried flowers, and spice. Made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah (that’s the III of HG III), it’s one heck of a red blend and well worth seeking out.
