Review:

Brand new release of the 2011 vintage.

2009 Wine Spectator - 93 points - Polished, lithe and distinctive for its smoke, sassafras and spice notes, which swirl through the huckleberry and black fig flavors, lingering effortlessly. Drink now through 2019. - H.S.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

This delectable wine is characterized by sumptuous buckets of sun-ripened blueberry, lavender and a wee-bit of orange zest on the nose. Once you sip, its flavors unfold, revealing blueberry, subtle smoke and juicy red pomegranate. The palate is round, smooth and ready, like a succulent filet mignon. Drink this baby now or delight in its glory after a rest in your cellar.

2005 Vintage Tasting Notes

2005 Wine Advocate - 92 points - 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. Pepper Bridge, Seven Hills Vineyard fruit. - Jay Miller

2003 vintage notes: Wine Advocate 91 points: "A winner from Reininger, the 2003 Syrah (1034 cases), explodes from the glass with roses, black raspberries, black cherries, strawberries, and a myriad of spices. Aged entirely in new French oak barrels, this Syrah reveals only a hint of wood spice in its black cherry and dark raspberry-dominated personality. Flush with fruit, its silky character glides across the palate. This is a beautiful, sensual wine to drink over the next 4-5 years."

Wine Spectator says: "Chuck Reininger blends in 3 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, but this one tastes like it's all Syrah. It is fine in texture, with lively blackberry, pepper, and pomegranate flavors emerging all in one piece, persisting through the fine-grained tannins on the long, refined finish. Drink now through 2010.H.S. "

Wine Press NW says about the 2000 Syrah: "It''s hard to stand out in star-studded Walla Walla, but Chuck Reininger manages to with eerie consistency. His second release of Syrah opens with superior aromas of dark fruit, coffee, tobacco and black olives and richly structured flavors of ripe plums and blackberry jam."
