Wine Review: This dark red ink colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Intrinsic has an inviting blackberry, black raspberry, plum and oak bouquet. I also detected hints of leather and black pepper. This wine is big, rustic and full bodied. It displays dusty blackberry and blueberry flavors on the palate. I enjoyed its bold, but managed tannins. The blueberry flavors continue on through the finish which is smooth, dry and fades away nicely. I would pair this bold Cab with a nice thick prime rib. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Intrinsic is a true expression of Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington yet with a new, distinct take. This wine has a refined nose with aromas of leather and cherries that are truthful to Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington. The flavors are layered with tones of blueberry jam, pomegranate and chocolate. The texture is rustic, yet silky, with a unique savory and inviting finish. Pair with grilled meats such as lamb, beef, and pork and seared vegetables.
