Sunstone 2000 Merlot (Santa Ynez Valley)

Fewer regions are more sensitive to site selection for Merlot than Santa Barbara County. Put it in a cool spot, and it turns vegetal. This wine has some of those notorious asparagus flavors that can plague South Coast Bordeaux varietals. It's extremely well made, but can't overcome this basic shortcoming.
