French Cellars Cabernet Merlot 2011

The Private Collection - French Cellars Cabernet Merlot, vol. 13.5% ($19.95)

Ric doesn't fancy the Merlot grapes. So do i, after this bottle of Cabernet-Merlot blend, made in France by winemakers trained in Australia.

Deep red, quite fruity and very little spicy. I find it especially boring and dull. 'Flat' might be the word. Pairing it with red meat helps to finish the bottle as i gulped, ignoring the weak 13.5% vol. But i guess if you are one who like Merlot, this bottle should be good?
