Decanter World Wine Awards | June 2017

2013 REININGER Syrah wins high honor for best USA Red Rhône, Decanter World Wine Awards

Wine Advocate | June 2018

2015 REININGER Syrah, Walla Walla Valley—93 points

‘The 2015 Syrah is very pretty, wafting from the glass with a fragrant bouquet of crushed cassis, cherries, sage and violets. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, velvety and layered, with powdery tannins, good balancing acids and a long, perfumed finish. While it’s listed as 100% Syrah, it wouldn’t be difficult to imagine that some Viognier found its way into the vats, given its aromas and flavors. Drink it over the next 6 or 7 years.”-William Kelly

2015 REININGER Pepper Bridge Vineyard Malbec, Walla Walla Valley—90 points

“The 2015 Malbec Pepper Bridge Vineyard reveals aromas of mulberries, cardamom and rich soil, followed by a supple, medium-bodied palate structured around velvety, melting tannins. The savory finish is gently chewy. It’s a textural, expressive Malbec with no hard edges that’s already drinking well.”-William Kelly

Wine Spectator | May 2018

2015 REININGER Syrah, Walla Walla Valley—90 points

“Muscular, yet remains balanced by bold blueberry, licorice and smoked black pepper flavors that are framed by big tannins. Best after 2019.”—Tim Fish

Wine & Spirits | December 2017

2014 REININGER Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley—93 points

“Drawn mostly from Pepper Bridge Vineyard, this elicits delightfully savory aromatics in a classic Walla Walla mode: the sundried tomato, a hint of espresso bean, smoky nuances. Despite its savory notes it remains bright and vibrant in tone, with invigorating blue fruit, a nimble texture, light, fresh acidity and fine tannins.”
