Tamarack is Big Red of The Week - Again!

*** Big RED of The Week ***

Not new to the shop but you cannot improve on perfection!
And this vintage of Firehouse Red from Tamarack Cellars is perfection.

We agree with this review: "In the age of Wine Corporations and LLCs,
it is rare to find a value-priced wine that actually tells you who made the wine.
I have great respect for wineries that produce upscale wines, but also produce
wine priced for the average wine drinker. Bringing a wine of good value
year in and year out is not an easy task."

The Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red 2017 is a blend of 33%Syrah, 
27%Cabernet Sauvignon, 18%Merlot, 11%Cabernet Franc,

 Counoise is a grape typically found in Rhone Valley and used in Red blends.

Dark fruit on the nose, including ripe raspberry and blackberry with notes of cocoa,

anise and a soft, round mid-palate. On the palate, grippy tannin gives way

to black cherry, baking spices with herbal notes, followed by a hint of BBQ,
oregano with relaxed, dusty tannins.
