Travis Tausend Sitting in a Tree 2021
The 2021 Sitting in a tree merlot is richer than i have ever made it before. A long and cool ripening period allowed the fruit to hang out on the vine for a while longer without the acid dropping away. After the fruit was hand picked I de-stemmed the fruit into large fermenters and covered the berries with direct pressed juice to start a semi carbonic ferment.
This is a wonderful full favoured Merlot with a balanced acidity that keeps it medium bodied and fresh. -Travis Tausend
