Dry Creek Heritage Zinfandel 2013 -- $17.99

“Dry Creek Vineyard has long been among the most value driven of Sonoma County’s premier wine producers. The wines are impeccably made from exceptional vineyards sources and sold at fair prices. The Heritage Vines Zinfandel is a stunner at the price. It shows lovely red fruits with notes of spice and earth, is well balanced and shows excellent length in the mouth, with a persistent finish.” 92 Points Wine Review

Dry Creek Cabernet 2011 -- $21.99

“It's hardly a surprise that Dry Creek Vineyard should make a dynamite Cabernet at this price. It has long been among the best value wineries in California, consistently turning out wines of superior quality at prices that are modest by comparison to others in the same neighborhood. This one shows intense red fruit character, hints of spice and firm backbone. And it's going to be hard to beat the price with this sort of quality.” 94 Points Wine Reviews online. com (Robert Whitley)

Green tinged yellow. High pitched aromas of lime zest, green apple, ginger and chalky minerals showing very good clarity.
