Gainey 2008 Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc (Santa Ynez Valley)

Although the winery describes the oak on this wine as neutral, it seems to stick out. The flavors are dominated by buttered toast and vanilla honey. Then the lemons and limes kick in, with their undergirding of minerals. Gainey has good grapes, but needs to develop a better delineation between their regular and Limited Selection Sauvignon Blanc.
