Reininger Desiderata 20

desiderata n., pl. 1. Something considered highly desirable, necessary, or even essential. 2. yearned for 3. Sought after. [Latin   desideratum, DESIRE.]

The definition of Desiderata is not only apropos for this REININGER 20THAnniversary retrospective, non-vintage blend of all six noble Bordeaux red varietals but also for describing 20 years of passion behind our winery. The depth of its dark garnet color eludes to riches soon to be exposed. Fragrant scents of wild blackberry and eucalyptus burst from the glass revealing layers of black currant, cherries, dry fig, both vanilla and coffee bean, with a hint of dried tobacco leaves, a blend of exotic spice and sandalwood. The mouth is soft and velvety with supple round tannins surrendering a bounty of plums, blackberries, cherries, mulberries and chopped dates mixed in an old leather bowl splashed with cassis and sprinkled with spice and an occasional pinch of pepper. Enjoy REININGER’S homage to the multiplicity of Walla Walla.

Reininger 2011 Cima

Despite maturing beyond five and a half years in barrel, the Vestals of Rome have seen to it that this Cima’s flame of youth hasn’t been extinguished. Scented oil of crushed violet and rose hip coat a young soft leather satchel dusted in loam and graphite carrying fresh Rainier cherries, tree picked red plums, crushed blueberries covered with very fine shavings of MaKintosh’s Toffee. Wonderful acidity unleashes a bounding flavorful exuberance of classic Sangiovese sour cherry and bright plum finishing with a light spread of strawberry jam and cherries jubilee. Its palate is silky soft with a perfect hint of new oak. Imagine this Cima paired with seasoned fire roasted chicken and oven dried tomato and wild mushroom polenta.- Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Reininger 2014 Malbec

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. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Reininger 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

Reininger 2014 Semillon

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. - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Reininger 2013 Mr Owl's Red

Mr. Owl’s Red is a tribute to Raul, our Assistant Winemaker, who is responsible for the blending of this wine. A percentage of the wine’s proceeds will go to a charity of Raul’s choosing.

Mr. Owl’s has a dark purple hue with dark fruit and cherry aromas, mingling with an intriguing sweet and savory character, which includes light floral scents and spices. The scents consist of violet, rose, coriander, vanilla, and a pinch of crushed black pepper in a splash of soy. Its gorgeous acidity simply juices the palate with dark cherry, plum and black currant. Its soft, silky tannins glide silently over the buds like air over an “Owl’s” wing.  This is Reininger’s “park the car, kick off your shoes, and fire up the stove” wine!
