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 2014 Syrah

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. -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.

Its gentle, soft silky tannins and very judicious use of oak, usher in flavors of cherry, raspberry, currants and plum mingled with earthy notes of graphite, loam and a hint of tar, layered with a delightful touch of cocoa.

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 2012 Mr Owl's Red

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.

“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!

To further thank Raul, REININGER donates $5 of every bottle sold to his favorite Walla Walla charity, Friends of the Farm Labor Homes Community.
