Pepper Bridge, Seven Hills & 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 was the first to permanently enter our wine collection with the inaugural 2017 vintage. 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

Harmony defines this Bordeaux-inspired blend of five noble grapes performing in concert.  A tap of the barrel wand summons herbal scented dark fruit with wisps of coffee and spice. An arrangement, composed on a sturdy foundation of sound tannins, brings together bold black cherry, plum, and black currant.  The flavors symphonically flow on a sheer layer of rich dark wood toast with soft herbal notes.
