Intrinsic Red 2016
James SucklingThis is a phenomenal wine with blackberry and blueberry character as well as black olives. Flamboyant and sexy. Blows your mind. Full body and pure fruit. No wood, no make up. Skin-contact wine made in stainless. Nine months on the skins. Groundbreaking. Naked great wine! Blend of 52% cabernet franc, 44% malbec, 3% cabernet sauvignon and 1% merlot. Drink now.
Jeb DunnuckMade from 52% Cabernet Franc, 44% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1% Merlot, the 2016 Red Blend sports a vibrant purple color as well as terrific notes of cassis and blackberry fruits, spice box, licorice, and hints of vanilla. This medium to full-bodied effort has no hard edges, beautiful purity and finesse, and a great finish, all making it a terrific value.
Wine SpectatorTrim and rather tightly wound, with modestly proportioned currant and spice flavors that finish with grippy tannins. Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2020. 25,000 cases made.
