Gainey Sante Ynez Merlot 2017
$64.99 $62.99 price per bottle
The estate-grown Merlot is a sumptuous red wine boasting fragrant black cherry and dark plum aromas mingled with appealing vanilla, cocoa and light herbal scents. Juicy and succulent on the palate, the wine's concentrated dark cherry, plum and cassis flavors gain a zesty tea-leaf spice tone in the long, savory finish. Beautifully balanced, with supple tannins, this Merlot is delicious on release with poultry, duck, game and beef dishes, but it handsomely rewards an additional three to five years of bottle aging.
