I♥CA 2009 California Merlot - ~$4

This straight-forward California Merlot from Fresh & Easy offers plummy berry flavor and moderately astringent tannins on the finish.

Sure, it's a little one-dimensional - and not quite as interesting as its Pinot Grigio label mate. All in all, though, it's a perfectly serviceable wine at a very affordable price. It's definitely a step up, taste-wise, from ultra-bottom-shelfers like The Big Kahuna and Saludas.



Score

Drinkability: 7/10
Price: 4.5/5
Total value: 11.5/15
