Is this wine worth serving?

I have an event coming up, and I’d like to provide some wine. The wine won’t be a focus, but some people will expect it, so I’d like to give them something. I don’t drink wine, and know nothing about it. My plan was to go to a local wine shop and explain that I need something basic at a lower price point. But, out of the blue, a friend offered to donate a bunch of wine that he’s had in his basement that he won’t ever use. My sense is that these were gifted to him over the years, but when he drinks wine, he wants something different. He’s got one to three cases of each of the following:

Main Street Winery chardonnay Santa Barbara County 2008
Chateau Font Du Brok Rose Chateau 2006
Foxhorn Vineyards American Merlot
Foxhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Panilonco Carmenere D.O. Colchagua Vallet, Chile 2012
Hess Select Chardonnay Monterey 2010
Summerfield California Chardonnay 2009
Oko Pinot Grigio 2009
Xplorador Chardonnay Central Valley, Chile 2009
Are any of these any good? Are they okay to serve to folks? The original plan was to get two cases of a red and two cases of a white. I know that’s the right quantity. If none of the above are worth serving, I’m fine going with the original plan.
