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 2013 Merlot

Sweet aromatic oak, reminiscent of my Great-Uncle Dell's unlit, moist pipe tobacco, accompanies this medium-dark red Merlot with deep scents of black cherry demi glaze, baked fig and cocoa. Its velvety palate and rich fruit are supported by soft, round tannins and an abundance of acid. Permitting this wine to breath a few hours will divulge layers of plush black cherry, roasted figs and plums drizzled with Chambord and drops of mocha. Take your time, enjoy. - Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Reininger 2015 Mr Owl's Red

Blend: 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Malbec, 15% Syrah, 8% Petit Verdot

Mr. Owl’s Red is a tribute to Raul, our Assistant Winemaker, whoo is responsible for the blending of this wine.

Mr. Owl quietly goes about his work with purpose and always with a smile. His dark garnet blend includes a touch of magenta, indicative of its Malbec, with aromas of dried dark fruit, blackberry jam, and a splash of cedar with subtle savory notes. A big chewy texture with bold round tannins create a large first impression.  An abundance of acid lifts the dense, dark fruit flavors of black plum, wild blackberry, black currant with background expressions of espresso and oak. Silently, in the dark of night, this Owl does the heavy lifting. ~Chuck Reininger, Winemaker

Reininger 2015 Syrah

This 2015 Syrah is nearly identical in character to our internationally acclaimed 2013 REININGER Syrah¾Decanter Magazine’s 2017 World Wine Awards, Platinum winner for BEST USA Red Rhone Varietal.

This astonishing wine is marked by its feminine elegance contrasted by distinguished opulence. Fragrances of violet, lavender and lilac attar
escort notes of blueberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, earth and game. The palate builds on a foundation of soft, silky tannins and succulent acidity showcasing the aforementioned fruits plus cassis, with complex, thin layers of carpaccio, olive, bacon fat, loam and a lingering dark fruit finish that eventually flushes out a beautiful hint of crushed white pepper. This Syrah was aged in 100% neutral French oak barrels to accentuate the wholesome, down to earth beauty of this gorgeous fruit and the Walla Walla Valley soils that nurtured it.

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 2014 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
