Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red 2009
Despite its origin in Washington State, Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red almost supports an encyclopedia article on French wine grapes, since it features 31% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 24% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, with 1% each of Carmenere and Malbec. But then Tamarack adds that 2% dash of Columbia Valley Sangiovese (an Italian grape they proudly offer in another wine as a full varietal). The mix proves, if anything, the range of grape production—all promising superb quality—now associated with regions like Walla Walla, Rattlesnake Hills, Wahluke Slope, and the Columbia Valley AVA. -From www.stylegourmet.com
Dark fruits, with a bit of spice and leathery/earthy flavors. Very smooth. Enjoyed this one a lot!
earthy smoky nose with peppery notes on the palate, dark earthy bold fruit flavors. great for under $20!
Wine Sellers of Saugatuck, 10/15. Consumed at Thanksgiving dinner 2015. Lovely blend of nine wines. Paired well with all the taste treats at our festive feast. All this for $10, the Saugatuck Wine Store was a real great find.
this is one of my favorite blends for the price. it never lets me down, for a strong grouping of eight different grapes.. how fun is that!
