Tasting Notes

The 2009 Reininger Merlot is very robust with intense garnet color, and big fruit aromatics of Craisins, black currant with sweet oak spice. Silky and smooth in texture with sculpted flavors of cassis, black berry and cranberry, toffee, and nutmeg. A touch of acidity lifts the fruit toward the end for a long bright finish.
