Here's another good value table red from the folks at Cline:

Cline 1996 "Côtes d'Oakley" California Red Table Wine ($7.49)
Very dark ruby color, with berry and muted herbal scents. Fresh, simple red-fruit flavor with acidity in proper balance. Simple wine, a bit short in the finish, but mellow fruit flavors make it a quaffable table wine, and a good value. (Jan. 11, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Worked nicely with a simple stir-fry of ham, green peppers and onions.

(For another good-value red from Cline, see last night's notes on the winery's 1996 California Zinfandel.)

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
