Tamarack Cellars Syrah Columbia Valley 2004
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
I've been a fan of the firehouse red from tamarack for a while so i thought i would give the syrah a shot. opened the first one the other night at dinner with my 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son. my daughter asked me "daddy - why do you only drink wine at dinner?" given how much i was enjoying this syrah, i didn't have a good answer for her.
External Reviews for Tamarack Cellars Syrah Columbia Valley
baked plum, roasted mocha and earth aromas open to dark cherry and boysenberry flavors with mineral and toasted currant. A big wine with lots of structure, great fruit and complexity with a jammy, fleshy core and sweet, intense tannins.
I wanna be formal, but I'm also here to party! This Syrah is great in that it is sophisticated in it's flavor and structure yet tasty and delicious. Aromas of toffee and coffee are delicious while the tastes jumps from that point with nice dark red fruit. Well done!!!
2004 was a tough vintage for many Walla Walla vineyards, due to a record winter freeze. This Syrah seems none the worse for wear, bearing some classic Walla Walla Syrah characteristics and showing very nicely. The nose is a great rich blend of cinnamon and licorice, earth and baked goods. There is a burst of berries as I take my first sip, leading to notes of toffee and nutmeg that lead to a jammy and ripe finish.
