Cline Cellars-Viognier-North Coast-California-2009-$8.99-A nose of fruit and citrus, medium yellow in color.  A light to medium bodied white, with pineapple, peach flavors, some acidity, but just not enjoyable, liked it in 2008.                    NR                    CR-81                   Good for cooking.

Picchetti Winery-Tahoe-Red Table-Bordeaux blend-Cupertino-California-2005-$48.00-A elegant nose of dark fruit and spice, dark garnet in color.  A full bodied, dry red table wine.  I tried this at this wineries South Lake Tahoe tasting room last year and thought it was very good (good enough to almost spend $50).  Was brown away how great this blend was (not even sure what the blend is, guessing it was Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot), black currants, cassis, blueberry, dark chocolate and spice.  Levels of flavors with a long finish, delicious, drinks like a $100 bottle of wine, cool commemorative bottle.                    NR                   CR-95                      Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
