Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon 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. Enjoy it with grilled meats such as lamb, beef, and pork, and seared vegetables.
Intrinsic has tremendous complexity and imparts raw characteristics because 50% of the grapes stayed on the skins after fermentation for approximately 9 months (average time from crush to press for red wine is under a month). This extended maceration extracted the intrinsic qualities of the grape, mellowed tannins, and created an unexpected silky texture. 10% of the wine was fermented in concrete tanks, highlighting the mineral character of the wine. 50% of the final blend was aged in 100% older French oak for 12 months. Cabernet Franc was added to the final blend to achieve additional layers and complexity.
Winemaking and street art. For both, the artist must work with an unpredictable canvas, blending instinct and experience to craft something vibrant, gutsy and fleeting. Like the urban art that inspired it, let Intrinsic be a beautiful reminder that art born in the city—whether on a wall or in a glass—is meant to be shared, not possessed.
