  • 2014 REININGER Malbec

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • A dense, dark garnet/purple bathes the glass with beautiful, translucent dark magenta legs. Ripe dark fruit displaying plum, cherry and blackberry jam braided with violet, vanilla and a hint of white pepper intrigue the nose. These flavorful notes are reflected on the palate while supported by a somewhat chewy, rich mouthfeel, very fine tannins and accentuated with a playful acidity that elevates the dark brambly fruit to the finish accompanied by elegant yet rustic minerality. Pair with bison, or grass fed beef and grilled vegetables.

  • 2013 REININGER Cabernet Sauvignon

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Our REININGER 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a generous garnet color, with fragrant scents of black currant, black cherry, savory spice, and hints of crushed rose petals and Sambuca. This is certainly showing its Walla Walla roots by spanning old world and new world supported by its two pillars of earthy, loamy dark fruit and savory herbs and spice while balancing its convivial acids with soft drying tannins. Mature black currant, and dark cherry are introduced with both medium plus acidity and body shadowed by a dash of black raspberry Chambord, toasted cedar, espresso with a blend of savory herbs.

  • NV CPR Red Wine, Second Edition

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • CPR Red Wine, Second Edition is as diverse as its elements: Seven grape varieties and Eight vintages. The wine is informally inspired by the Solera blending tradition, where each year we bottle nearly 20% of the blend which we then replace with a subsequent vintage to create the following year’s wine thus creating a “perpetual wine.” Its garnet color portends the dichotomy of youth and the complexity of age while an alluring nose teases the senses with intriguing spices, bramble berries and dark fruit compote. A lively circle of black raspberry, boysenberry, date and plum promenade around the palate on fine tannins accompanied by coriander, cardamom, white pepper, vanilla bean, dried rose petals, a pinch of tobacco, rich-wet garden bed soil and soft leather. Its striking complexity of spices and dry-dark framboise extend well into the sunset.

  • 2014 REININGER Reserve Chardonnay

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • POISE. Our 2014 REININGER Reserve Chardonnay’s Poise embraces my palate and thoughts with each indulgence. Every defining element of its character is beautifully nuanced with no individual part reigning over the others. Its refined balance and integration of fruit, minerality, oak and acid yield a gorgeous medium-full bodied Chardonnay of subtle richness portraying flavors of yellow granny smith apples, Asian pear, crème fraiche and vanilla, with soft nutmeg spice, hazelnut crumbs, sweet aromatic pipe smoke and toffee. Nuance and poise defined by Chardonnay.

  • 2014 REININGER Syrah

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Syrah exhibits its physical terroir perhaps more than any other varietal and the 2014 REININGER Syrah is a fine example of this characteristic. This warm vintage Syrah is dominated by the flood deposited soils of Seven Hills Vineyard. Dried, crushed violets with baked blueberry, blackberry jam, bacon wrapped dates and a pinch of white pepper are accentuated by Seven Hills’ sandy loam earth present dynamic aromatics. Upfront acidity delivers a medium full-bodied wine possessing a handsome savoriness combined with blueberry, boysenberry, olive, and big minerality with very fine-drying tannins then finished by black plum and dried figs. Try with Moroccan spiced ground lamb.

  • 2014 REININGER Semillon

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • How wonderful, as well as unusual, it is to experience a 100% Walla Walla Valley Semillion. Opening the bottle immediately evoked a childhood flashback of crushing fresh green apples. Its crisp, clean lanolin palate just may inspire me to write a book on the Zen of winemaking. Green apples, a blade of straw, a hint of lemon grass, lemon and papaya wrap this into the sexiest Reininger white wine ever! Enjoy with Brasserie Four’s fresh pan seared Idaho Trout in clarified butter.

  • 2009 REININGER Cima

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • The bright ruby color of our 2009 REININGER Cima fails to intimate its six and a half years in barrel. The wine harbors aromatics of my great uncle’s sweet pipe tobacco, dark fruit and coconut. Gentle waves of dark plum and black raspberry wash over the palate with splashes of black cherry, coriander, mocha and leather anchored by round, broad tannins. The surf retreats surrendering baked dark fruit laced with saffron spice.

  • 2014 REININER Carmenere

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Carmenère, known as the “Lost Bordeaux”, has perhaps the most intriguing story of any grape variety. Exploring it on the web will not disappoint and neither will our 2014 REININGER Carmenère. Its crimson color, with long glistening legs, allures the nose into a descending feast of wild earthy aromatics of dark wet earth, cracked peppercorn, rare tenderloin, plum and mushroom that eventually all evolves into a more refined state of dry-loamy soil, white pepper, black raspberries and dark chocolate. The flavors mirror its refined aromas while gently riding on a sheer-silky texture possessed with a sophisticated, somewhat racy acidic attitude and soft-round tannin structure. Be forewarned, not everyone can handle this love affair.

  • 2012 REININGER Mr. Owl's Red

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • When the Reininger children were young, they had difficulty pronouncing the name of the man who began working with us. The children would call him “Mr. Owl!” In 2002, Raul Morfin became our Assistant Winemaker and the first Mr. Owl’s Red vintage was crafted. For the last 10 years Raul takes his favorite grapes from each vintage and creates a special blend. For it’s tenth anniversary, Raul’s killed it. “Mi favorito!” says Raul. On first pour, the deep ruby color hints at the flavors and aromas to come. From beginning to end, raspberries, ripe plums and toasted vanilla erupt from the glass. Silky tannins and well balanced acidity brings forth black raspberry, currant and a touch of loam on the finish. This is the perfect table wine. Salud!
