2017BDX

Pepper Bridge, Seven Hills, StoneTree & XL

When Chuck & Tracy Reininger established the winery in 1997 their vision was to be Bordeaux-centric. Although other wines like the REININGER Syrah and Cima have expanded our portfolio, Bordeaux is where we draw inspiration for most of our wines.

Over the years, we’ve produced the occasional Bordeaux-style red blend, but BDX is the first to permanently enter our wine collection and is the latest addition to our winery’s lineup. This wine is composed of varietals that are traditionally grown in the Bordeaux region of France and showcases the unique terroir of the Walla Walla Valley.

Tasting Note

The REININGER BDX is a bodacious, energetic blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 26% other Bordeaux varietals.

Spirited scents of bright cherry, plum and violets with a gentle suggestion of wood spice, party in the glass.  A dynamic personality of fruit flavors showcases red cherry, fig, black currant and plum melded with hints of dark chocolate, mint, vanilla, graphite and loam. Its luscious mouthfeel is supported and balanced by a kinetic acidity and medium, soft-round tannins with a vivacious, lengthy fruity finish.  – Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
