Reininger Syrah 2007

External Review:

No need to roll over and reach for the proverbial cigarette when there's a healthy alternative. This seductive Syrah has all the classic varietal trappings including the smoke! ripe, u-pick blueberries surrounded by a garden of violets and lavender on a damp early morning where the warmth of mother earth rises to embrace the lingering smoke of an extinguished wood-fire stove ingratiating the palate with alluring, velvety tannins. Got a match?

Get a grip! This Syrah deserves the extra Walla in Walla Walla. Sumptuous baked blueberry floods the mouth with floral notes of lavender whirling around hints of pepper spice and carne asada. round, sturdy tannins support this powerful expression of Syrah with an elastic finish.

Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 93Complex, rich and completely seductive, this supports generous fruit with a beautiful array of scents, from mole and beef bones to pumpernickel and dark blackberry fruit. Its flavors bear out that black fruit, accented by rich, smoky cocoa and a dense richness that gathers momentum for a lush, full chewy finish. Beef bourguignon would make a great pairing.Wine Tasting NotesGet a grip! This syrah deserves the extra Walla in Walla Walla.
