I ♥ CA Merlot

I don't mind trying the cheap stuff sometimes. You never know when you'll be plesently surprised. For like $4, I figured I'd give I ♥ CA a shot.

After opening I ♥ CA Merlot, I let it breath and then took in the scents. It has a very straight up grape aroma with spice notes. So far so good. 

As for taste, it's a little fruity with a hint of chocolate on the back end. It seemed to also have a underlying tone of blackberries. It is a hair watery, but it does have an easy finish and is smooth overall.

I enjoyed this bottle with a chicken dinner and it complimented well despite it's subdued flavor.

If all you have is $5 to get a wine, there's better out there. I liked it, but didn't love it. It just felt like it was designed to be a "cheap wine that doesn't totally suck". Which is, what it is…

It's cheap, but it's not terrible.
5 Flavor
It leaves a lot to be desired.
7 Drinkability
It's easy to drink, but mainly because it's not bold at all, just smooth yet watery.
There's better for the money out there. It's just ok.
