2014 REININGER Seven Hills Vineyard Carménère, Walla Walla Valley—90 points

“The 2014 Walla Walla Valley Carmenere gives up crazy amount of pepper as well as lots of red and blackberry fruits and leafy herb characteristics. It’s medium-bodied, nicely textured and has beautiful purity. It’s an impressive example of this variety!”—Jeb Dunnuck

2014 REININGER Carmenere,  Walla Walla Valley

You can visit the Reininger Winery just west of Walla Walla to experience the tale end of crush, with the winery redolent of fresh fermentation aromas that excite the senses of any wine lover. Perhaps that is Carmenere you smell fermenting, like this one Chuck Reininger made from grapes grown at famed Seven Hills Vineyard. “Wild, earthy aromatics” include spicy mineral, peppercorn, tenderloin and mushroom cozying up to dark fruits of plum and black raspberry. ~Chuck Hill

2014 REININGER Malbec,  Walla Walla Valley

Chuck Reininger’s eponymous label is used for wines crafted from fruit grown in the Walla Walla Valley AVA. This Malbec from the renowned Pepper Bridge Vineyard offers dark fruits of plum, blackberry and cherry with spicy notes of pepper and dried herb. The finish adds vanilla and toasty caramel braced by a core of earthy mineral. ~Chuck Hill
