  • Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red 2012


    This one was such a thrill from the moment I opened the bottle till I finished the last drop. This has to be the finest wine I've tasted this year. Mellow entry, aroma is a burst of grape. Vanilla, raspberry, strawberry and a finish that seems to last forever. WOW Read More

  • Tamarack Cellars Syrah Ciel du Cheval 2009


    Tree bark, violet, white pepper, rare beef, lingonberry, violet pastille, and a hint of juniper all come together beautifully on this pure and precise nose. Pretty powerful on entry, this carries a leading edge of ripe and sweet blueberry and wild cherry fruit to the palate. The tannins are soft and polished lending this a decidedly silky feel a...
