    October 12, 2020 - Second try (10/12/20) just after trying the 2016. Seems my first note was right. It's just a bit too sharp. Even more so on day 2. Barely ok with food. Sad given how good the 2016 was.

    September 30, 2020 - Delicious red blend. A bit on the lighter side, may need to let it age to develop more.

    September 20, 2020 - Sourced primarily from vineyards in Horse Heaven Hills, Intrinsic's 2017 red wine is a blend of 51% Malbec and 49% Cabernet Franc. Last tasted a little over a year ago, it is now deep ruby in color and continues to deliver aromas and flavors of cassis, huckleberry, dark chocolate, lavender, bramble leaf and mint. Full-bodied, fresh, lightly oaked and with well-integrated alcohol (14.5%), its tannins are better integrated than when last tasted. Solid on the middle palate and medium in length on the back end, this well-priced red is fleshing out as anticipated. Drink now-2025.
