Tamarack blends grapes from an astonishing number of sites scattered across the length and breadth of the Columbia Valley, and yet makes wines that are distinctive, polished, generous, and focused. The 2008 Merlot includes 5% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc. Its structure is firmly Cab-like, its fruit broadly displayed across the midpalate, a mix of ripe strawberries and cherries dusted with sweet baking spices and cocoa. It’s a joyride from start to finish.

The 2008 Merlot contains 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon in its blend. The fruit was sourced from 7 vineyards in 5 AVAs with aging in 50% new, mostly American oak. Notes of cedar, spice box, incense, violets, cassis, and blackberry compose the bouquet of this smooth-textured, savory, ripe Merlot. It can be approached now but has the structure to evolve for another 1–2 years.

Lean, lithe and nicely balanced to play smoky black tea notes around a gentle core of cherry and raspberry fruit. Drink now through 2015.

firm and focused on the palate this is one big Merlot. The flavors are almost piercing in their intensity with loads of classic dark cherry and ripe berry that lingers and becomes more intriguing in the mouth with the rich tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

Roasted coffee beans and cherry cola aromas. On the palate, bright ripe fruits abound. Sweet plum, cherry and blackberry pie come to mind, layered with vanilla, milk chocolate and rich, velvety tannins.
