The 2021 Treleaven Merlot brings together a savory herbal side with unexpected freshness, it is akin to biting into a plum just before it was ripe, the skin crunches and snaps, the flesh still sings of the tree, the earth and the sky, still part of the plant while also on the verge of becoming something more.
Composition: 75% Merlot, 20% Petite Sirah 5% Cabernet Franc
