     1) 2011 Sauvignon Blanc from the ALMA De Chile winery , a Private Reserve from Chile's Aconcagua Valley, $9.99, On Special for $4.99 a bottle, some bottles are delicious, some are a bit old as it is an older vintage, and the color on some of the bottles is a bit more gold than one would usually see or expect. Check it out, cook with it if you think it is too tired to drink. Cheers.

     2) Carmenere 2011 Private Reserve from Chile's Aconcagua Valley fro  the ALMA De Chile,   I enjoyed some of this weekend at home on Father's Day, a nice tasty dry red that has enough power and taste, silkiness and brightness to enjoy with many meals and satisfy many palates.
