It's easy to think of Napa Valley as the home of $300 Cabernet Sauvignons. But digging a little deeper, you'll find a diversity of wines, styles and prices. This week we highlight a mixed bag of Napa wines, with none clocking in above $40.

Tasting Highlights' wine reviews are fresh out of the tasting room, offering a sneak peek of our editors' most recent scores and notes to WineSpectator.com members.
