Intrinsic Wine Company
Winemaking and street art, for both, the artist must work with an unpredictable canvas, blending instinct and experience to craft something vibrant, gutsy and fleeting.
More than half of the final blend was sourced from several vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills. This area has a heavier soil of Burbank rocky loam and creates a more intense tannin structure with a delicate nose.
