The first bottle I have is a Lost Hills Vineyards California Cabernet Sauvignon. The bottle does not have a date on it. The alcohol content is 12%. It was made and bottled by Lost Hills Vineyads, Acampo, CA.
The second is a J. Wile and Sons, 1986, Napa Valley, Chardonnay, Estate Bottled. I would appreciate any info that you can give. Also, if they are worth something, who do I contact?

Welcome to the WineBoard.
Just about all the Lost Hills production was sacramental wine. As far as I know, very little made its way into the retail trade. It was generally non-vintage and meant for virtually immediate consumption.
It would take an exceptional Chardonnay to last 22 years, and unfortunately, J. Wile wasn't one of them. It sold for about $7 and was meant to be drunk within a few years of vintage. This is one of the many brands from Golden State Vintners.
Neither botle is drinkable, nor are they worth anything. Sorry.
