Reininger Mr. Owl's Red 2008

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself is a blend of mainly Merlot (88%), Syrah (7%) and Sangiovese (5%), and it's that latter that I believe provides some lovely differentiation to this wine. The color is a lovely deep purple in the glass, and the nose exudes leather, oak and plum. The taste is fruit forward as you might expect with a blend dominated by Merlot, but the initial burst of red berries and plum, give way to a spiciness, of cinnamon and anise, which is not surprising with the addition of some Sangiovese into the blend. I found the tannins to be somewhat subtle and earthy, which gave this wine a long, mellow finish.
