Food Pairings for Charles Shaw Merlot California
I received this wine as a gift from a friend. It was an acceptable table wine. It was nothing special.
Very good for a $2 dollar wine.
Great with ethnic beef dishes.
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.
This is cooking wine.
