Tamarack Cellars Red Blend Columbia Valley Firehouse Red 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Tastes like really, really good red wine. hard to separate all the flavors. Which varietal is lending which notes? Who knows? 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. fruity and loaded with berries, cherries, cassis, coffee, chocolate, vanilla bean and cinnamon.

The Firehouse Red has a pleasant spicy aroma, like cinnamon, with some bright red fruits to back it up. Well rounded on the palate, without being really big and overpowering. A great wine to go with food. Shared it at dinner with meatloaf covered in Pomodoro and a spicy penne pasta and it was fantastic.

Tamarack is located in a former fire station in Walla Walla, hence the Firehouse name. This blend reflects the aromatic sophistication and dignified weight of Cabernet Sauvignon, the plumy mouthfeel of Merlot and spicy brightness of Syrah.
