Of course it's cheap and decent. It's Chuck (of some number of dollars depending on the state you're in)! Nice light fruits -- darker tannins stand out far too much. You can tell you're drinking alcohol. Still, it's eminently drinkable.

I can't believe i'm saying this, but its decent stuff. Light color for a merlot, some earthy notes - rather gamay like. Very fruity, very gulpable and light - barely a trace of tannin. Slightly bitter finish (short) but overall a very easy drinking wine full of cherry flavor.

Lovingly purchased at TJ's on a regular basis, this wine is great for when you have friends over who don't know wine, but you don't want to drink crap! It's really a good wine to uncork when you cannot decide on a wine--and especially considering the price. I always keep a few bottles in my rack. A tip: decant it for at least 30 minutes--it opens up a bit.

I think it is an excellent value for the price. For everyday use, I like it.

Winemaker's Notes:

Lovingly nicknamed “Two Buck Chuck” by a member of the wine press, these California wines have become something of a phenomenon in the wine world, and in our stores. Contrary to many an urban legend, these super-value wines began as the result of an oversupply of wine and a great relationship with a valued supplier. They’ve become the nation’s best-selling wines, not surprising when you consider the combination of low price ($1.99 - $3.49 per bottle, depending on the region) and great taste Charles Shaw wines offer. Depending on the season and the quality of wine available, our selection of Charles Shaw varietals will vary, but the quality never will
