Treleaven 2020 Merlot (Finger Lakes)

The sweet, minty oak spice is prominent but pleasing on this Finger Lakes Merlot. Bright, fresh red berry fruit comes next. The palate is medium in weight and has a crunchy acidity that makes the fruit feel fresh and tart. Sappy, taut tannins provide structure and shape. The oak feels better integrated on the palate, and the restrained alcohol and fruit freshness brings out a refreshing, cool-climate edge to this variety. Christina Pickard
