James Laube's column "Napa Cabernet on the Brink" (Nov. 15) resonated with me, and I'd like to add a couple of additional thoughts. First, Napa Cabernet has been in a market bubble for years. How long has it been since Cab prices in Napa have had any true relationship to their quality and value? The wine industry has told consumers for years that the market sets the price. There's a certain irony here: It seems the industry has not listened to its own words. Caveat venditor.
