#4 Kumbaya Red Blend Table 8: $9.99
Ripe blackberry and red currant flavors, with spicy accents; very smooth and velvety on the finish. This wine is versatile and fun to try with a wide range of dishes. How about grilled lamb kabobs or classic American hamburgers with grilled onions and all the trimmings. 
Indian Valley Cabernet Sauvignon $11.99
# 5 Butter Chardonnay  Table 2: $19.99
Comes from the oak barrels in which the wines are aged. But in reality, most of those qualities derive from malolactic fermentation, a process that the wines undergo after their primary alcoholic fermentation. Here is a great example of this new style, a non-oaky California Chardonnay that exhibits buttery scents and flavors and buttery texture. It comes from Napa Valley and seems perfect with roast or grilled chicken, even certain pastas and 'steak fish'
