Reininger Winery 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Walla Walla Valley, $41

reininger-winery-cabernet-sauvignon-walla-walla-valley-2010-labelThe Walla Walla Valley’s two most venerable vineyards — Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills — are called on by Chuck Reininger for this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. The use of French and Russian oak barrels helps to create aromas of dusty cherries, blackberry, plum and pink peppercorns. Plump flavors of cherries and black currants swirl in a tannin structure of milk chocolate that’s capped by a finish of light cherry.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 556 cases

Alcohol: 14.5%
