Justin on Reininger 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Justin on Reininger’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
The ’07s my favorite vintage [of Reininger Cabernet Sauvignon] we’ve ever made. It’s extremely accessible now, in its youth. It’s a wine that is definitely going to age well and improve with time. It’s well balanced, has lots of concentration and loads of flavor. The alcohol’s in check. The tannins and acids are really well balanced. It’s a very pretty wine. It’s drinking great now, but it’s going to be excellent in five to seven years.
It [the aroma] does have some of that leather and casiss, even some cocoa notes, and a little bit of smokiness. It’s got a really long finish on it, which is something else I like in a wine. I can’t wait to have it in another five years…..even though now I am really enjoying it.
Get yourself some!
