I first experienced this sensation in a few Cabs from Stellenbosch SA, but I am noticing it more in big California cabs and also in a lot of cab francs. Is this something that others experience, and if so, do you find it enjoyable?

I hope so, but I'm feeling in the minority right now I will say that my experience with this sensation has not been with cheaper wines. In fact I don't recall tasting it in anything retailing less than $20. I'm beginning to think I'm not effectively communicating what I am tasting.
