When it comes to California's signature red variety, most people immediately think of Napa Valley. But the state has other regions where the grape can excel, such as Paso Robles, which is experiencing a boomlet (see "Ripe for Cabernet" in our Nov. 15 issue); Knights Valley in Sonoma, the source of Peter Michael's Les Pavots and a top Beringer bottling; and Santa Cruz Mountains, home of the classic Ridge Monte Bello.
