Great Cali. Reds Under $10

08 Jan Great Cali. Reds Under $10

These two values from California offer incredible value for a modest amount of money. And the Merch favorite Cross Springs Pinot Noir is going away soon, so grab a last bit while you can!
2015 Cline Ancient Vine Zinfandel, Contra Costa County, California
On Sale $8.99 (lowest price online!)
It’s great to find both lots of fruit and good structure in a Zin, especially at such a reasonable price. Spicy aromas like vanilla and nutmeg precede vivid and ripe fruit flavors and more of those oaky spices on the palate where firm tannins and a bite of acidity give a mouthwatering balance.
Editor’s Choice, Wine Enthusiast2014 Cross Springs Colusa County Pinot Noir, California
On Sale $9.99
This is one of our finds of the year, a beautiful and ridiculously affordable Pinot Noir from Colusa (just east of the Napa county line). It’s got the more lush, fruit-forward style that is the classic California expression of the grape. Aromas of ripe black cherry, baked plums, and brown sugar lead into a palate of red fruits, subtle earth, baking spices, and vanilla, integrated well with soft acidity on the finish.
