Wine/value of unopened wine


i have a unopened bottle of cresta blanca california port ruby,i know its very old wanted to know its value.could send picture but can do so only by text.


To give you an accurate valuation we really need to determine the actual age of the bottle, the shape of the bottle is a good guide to age as is the way that the bottle is sealed, was there any other information on the label?

I would suspect if it only says Ruby that it has a value in US$ 30/50 at auction.

Kind regards,

David Baines
