Wine Tasting at Cabernet and Company

Reininger Wines Presented at Cabernet and Company

Thursday night (the 11th) from 6 to 8 Cabernet and Company presents a Washington State wine tasting. The winery is Reininger (www.reiningerwinery.com/homepage.html).

"To me Washington reds as a rule are usually way too juicy and fruity with no backbone," says owner Alixe Lischett. "These are an exception to that rule, especially Cab, Merlot, Syrah and a second label called Helix both white and red wines."

The April 2009 issue of Wine Spectator printed reviews for three of our favorite wines:

2005 Reininger Cabernet Sauvignon
Walla Walla Valley
92 Points

Event Start Date: 
Jun 11 2009 6:00pm - 8:00pm
