INTRINSIC 2017 Red Blend 3L
51% Malbec, 49% Cabernet Franc | Alc: 14.5%
Columbia Valley, Washington State
Intrinsic 2017 Red Blend opens with refined notes of raspberry, white tea leaves, a hint of fresh mint and lavender. The flavors are layered with milk chocolate, fig reduction, dark plum and licorice root, and the texture is angular, yet sophisticated, with chocolate ganache details in the finish.
Pair with beef sliders, citrus marinated pork sandwiches, beef and pork meatballs in a chipotle sauce
“Street art bears an uncanny resemblance to winemaking. For both, the environment affects the final art, resulting in a collaboration between artist and landscape.”
“Each variety is fermented on the other’s skins in a twist of technique. The swagger here is palpable and the deep dark berries are laced with flowers and delivered in pure, unadulterated form. So good! A blend of 51% malbec and 49% cabernet franc.” 93 pts – James Suckling
