Review date: May 7, 2016

Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State is very good and easy to enjoy. It opens with a mild blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle black cherry with notes of plum and black raspberry. I also detected hints of minerality and gentle oak. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins are sticky and linger for a while. This very approachable Cab would make a nice glass pour and would pair well with braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

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. Food Pairings: Pairs nicely with grilled meats such as lamb, beef, and pork and seared vegetables.

Organic status: not organic
