Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
This vintage of INTRINSIC has an herbal and floral nose, complemented by aromas of black cherry. The flavors are layered with tones of dried cherries, pomegranate and cocoa. The texture is rustic, yet silky, with a unique savory and long finish. The raw characteristics of INTRINSIC Cabernet Sauvignon pair nicely with grilled meats such as beef, and pork and seared vegetables.
Light aromas of spice and cedar lead to almost creamy feeling blueberry and plum flavors. It brings an appealing texture, although not immediately identifiable as Cabernet.
Another solid wine, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Cabernet Franc) has lots of chocolatey dark fruits as well as textbook Cabernet tobacco and leafy herb nuances. It's rich, mouth-filling, ready to go, and should keep for 5-7 years, although there's no need to delay gratification.
Soft and easygoing, with delicate black cherry, mocha and fresh violet accents. Drink now through 2026. 130,000 cases made.
