Santo Tomas Merlot 2019
This 2019 is on par with the rest of the offerings from Santo Tomás in this vintage, and an enormous amount of this has to do with their decision to bring on the talented Christina Pino in as winemaker. Given free reigns to alter the program as she saw fit, there was a massive change to all aspects of production from the fields to the bottle. Bravo.
The "ST" series from Santo Tomás focuses on the potential for a wine to deliver immediate pleasure. Their Merlot, like the rest of the series, is aged in stainless steel so what you get out of the wines from this series is a bright fresh showcasing of the naked qualities of the fruit. There are plenty of big bold, highly extracted wines out there, so let this be the one you turn to when light bright zingy fruit is more apropos.
