Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2016 vintage experienced the best of both worlds with a hot spring and early summer. A cooler than normal end of the ripening season allowed the wines to have ripeness, yet maintain freshness and elegance.

Food Pairings
Grilled meats such as lamb, beef, and pork and seared vegetables.

Vinification

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 wine was fermented in concrete tanks, highlighting the mineral character of the wine. 50% of the final blend aged in 100% older French oak for 12 months.
No new oak was used in the aging of this wine. The flavors and tannins are a result of the extended skin contact.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:
"A red with lots of sweet-tobacco and currant aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Harmonious and fine. Drink now." (May 2018)
