Intrinsic Red Blend 2018
This wine opens with refined notes of raspberry, white tea leaves, a hint of fresh mint and lavender. The flavors are layered with milk chocolate fig reduction, dark plum and licorice root, and the texture is angular, yet sophisticated, with chocolate ganache details in the finish.
Blend: 51% Malbec, 49% Cabernet Franc
|Wine Enthusiast: 90|
|This wine is almost equal parts Cabernet Franc (51%) and Malbec. The aromas suggest notes of cedar, coffee, citrus and cherry. Tangerine peel and plum flavors follow, bringing pleasing purity and plushness. The tannin's give a light squeeze. It’s a lot of wine for the money. Give it a short decant and pair it with grilled lamb shank. Editors’ Choice.|
