In terms of Cabernet Sauvignon acreage in California, Napa Valley and Sonoma rank first and third. The wines in this week's selection offer an excellent taste of what these two well-known Cabernet regions can do, all at $50 or less. And many are made in sizable volumes, meaning it should be easier to find them.
