Tasting Note

2015 was one of the hottest vintages to date, delivering our earliest harvest ever. Surprisingly, with the fruit ripening so quickly and the shortened hang time, the vintage provided ample acidity. Our deep ruby colored REININGER Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a nose of dark macerated fruit and cassis with notes of cacao nibs, mineral, crushed roses, and hints of mint/eucalyptus and wood spice. Black currant, plum and dark cherry descend on the palate with background tones of dried marionberries, loamy minerality and a judicious touch of oak with moderate drying tannins balanced by a fruit lifting acidity that evolves to a kirsch and black fruit finish.
