Tasting Notes

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, pomegranate, boysenberry, 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." ~ Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
