    Cul de Sac wines: $2.84 at HEB and Central Market

    The Cabernet tastes like late Beaujolais Nouveau and the Chard tastes like flat Pinot Gris. I'm sure the Merlot is just as good.

    If you regularly start in on the wine before lunch or are planning a teen's wedding, this is for you.

    Review: worth every penny.

    I am drinking the merlot right now. It's the new thing on our block. So I googled it for fun tonight and this thread was the 6th result.

    my roommate and I pick some up every time we hit HEB. Stuff is legit.....and obviously cheap as hell

    Solid 10 month old bump.

    If Trader Joe's brand is called 2 buck chuck, would HEBs be called 2 buck butt?

    I use those as cooking wines all the time.

    I tried the cab and the merlot a while back. They were definitely worth $3?

    The same people that make this wine also make Baybridge for Kroger, Oak Leaf for Walmart, and that stuff Whole Foods has. Same juice. Different label.

    Whole Foods has a $2.99 generic cab that I go for all the time. Sure, I'll sprinkle in a nice bottle or two from time to time, but the generic stuff is definitely drinkable as an every dayer.

    I'll have to try this HEB stuff...but even at a cheaper price point, you can probably get a more interesting buzz from these fine products...

    Absolutely the worst wine I have ever tasted. Unfortunately, my wife liked the name (we live on a cul-de-sac) and bought 6 bottles, 3 chard & 3 cabs. Don't use it to cook, you will ruin the dish. Only good for the kitchen sink drain.

  29. #29
    Armed works for Kroger.

    yeah, I'm by no means a wine expert but I finally tried the cul de sac wife swappin cab and merlot at heb and it's nowhere close to the worst $#@! I've had...I've had some really awful ~ $8 bottles so I expected this stuff to be horrible but wasn't gag reflex bad or anything. Granted, it was just after 4 or 5 IPA pints but I'm sure that didn't cloud my judgement.

    We found some under 3 dollar wine back when we were in college and it was disgusting, no idea if it was this same brand or not, this was probably 9 years ago. Came back to the room one day to see one of our neighbors mixing it with sprite.

    They also have a Oak Leaf wine at Walmart for around the same price. It's probably the same wine with a different label.

    Cul-de-sac literally translates as "bottom of the bag." At least they're being straightforward about the quality. Except for the using a foreign language to tell us part of it.
