A wonderful companion to one of our favorite comfort food meals, spaghetti and meatballs, is this Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers luscious, ripe fruit as well as a gentle earthiness, so it pairs beautifully with many meats and vegetables alike. Its well-integrated tannins make it particularly suited to grilled meats. Make a big platter of blue cheese sliders to wolf down with your first glasses; you won't regret it. Pan-seared pork chops slathered with sun-dried tomato pesto with a zucchini gratin on the side will bring groans of delight. For a more classic pairing, roast a leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic, surrounded by cippoline onions, carrots and baby potatoes. It's a one dish meal that's perfect for this Columbia Valley Cab. Fill your glasses one last time, and enjoy them with an aged, cloth-wrapped cheddar of your choice.

James Suckling: "A wine that delivers a very fragrant, floral edge and has a deeply integrated array of violet and red plums, as well as tomato paste. Half the wine is aged for nine months on skins and this has really meshed the tannins nicely. A blend of 96% cabernet sauvignon and 4% cabernet franc. Drink now."  Apr 2019

Winery: “The 2016 vintage of Intrinsic has a wonderful floral nose, complemented by aromas of cherry and leather. The flavors are layered with tones of blueberry jam, pomegranate and chocolate. The texture is rustic, yet silky, with a unique savory and inviting finish.

The raw characteristics of Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon pair nicely with grilled meats such as lamb, beef and pork, and seared vegetables.” ~ Juan Muñoz Oca, Winemaker
