Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a dark-fruited core on the nose, with hints of dust and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, a subtly sweet and smoky tone lingers in the mouth with structured tannins across the mid-palate. The complex mineral core is showcased on the lingering and precise finish. It's a delightful bottle of Cabernet, and it's keenly priced. As a wine reviewer, I focus on what is inside the bottle, not what's on the label. But in this instance, the label is absolutely mesmerizing and unforgettable. You'll want to pick this one up and try it for yourself.
Bright aromas of fresh herb, orange rind and orange twist lead to flavors that show more of the same, with the palate bringing a lovely sense of texture. There's enjoyment to be had, though it's impossible to identify as Cabernet.
