Gainey 2001 Merlot (Santa Ynez Valley)

Gainey was one of the first Santa Barbara wineries to nail Merlot, and while the Limited Selection is richer, their regular release is no slouch. Deeply extracted in blackcurrant fruit, well-oaked, and balanced in tannins and acids, it has that sumptuous mouthfeel you associate with upscale red wines.
