2008 Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red Columbia Valley Red Blend 750ml
Tamarack Cellars was founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman as the 14th winery in the Walla Walla Valley. Currently there are over 70 wineries in the Walla Walla Valley. The winery is dedicated to the production of small lot, hand-crafted wines from select vineyards of the Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and Yakima Valley appellations.
Tastes like really, really good red wine. Which varietal is lending which notes? Who cares? Rounded, lush, layered and lovely, the ultimate food wine, pairing well with everything from pasta and pizza to grilled meat and roasted chicken. Bright raspberry, currant, mocha, a touch of pepper spice, soft tannins and a lingering finish... year in and year out, like partying with an old friend.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Supple and open-textured, brimming with gorgeous plum and currant character that lingers enticingly on the deftly balanced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Carmenère. Drink now through 2013.
