Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red - 2003 Columbia Valley

Firehouse Red

Switching gears quite a bit from the Spanish wine of the last posting, comes this big fruity wine blend from the Columbia Valley. And judging by the Tamarack Cellars web site, this blend is sourced from all over the Columbia valley.

It’s got it all in there: 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Syrah, 15% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 2% Carmenere, 2% Sangiovese.  It’s big and juicy and I really liked it. To quote the Tamarack web site’s tasting notes for the wine: “Tastes like really, really good red wine.” So there you have it.

From distant memory, about $18.00 (Austin)
 Juicy fruit wine with lingering black cherry tastes. Hint of oak. Definite repeat buy.
