Tasting Notes

2016 was another in a row of very warm vintages and gave us the most approachable Syrah REININGER has ever produced.

A sweet, floral fragrant wave of violets, lilacs and delicate orchids float above a bed of dark berry fruit. This full body wine is incredibly soft and velvety, placing down layers of fresh, crushed over-ripe blueberries, boysenberries and Chambord blackberries with hints of black olive, a sweet smokiness, loamy earth, and an occasional tiny pinch of sweet thyme and black pepper. A wonderfully long fruity finish eventually fades to black cherry and loam. What a gorgeous Syrah! ~ Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
