2006 Tamarack Cellars "Firehouse Red" Columbia Valley Red Wine

SKU #1040179

91 points Wine & Spirits Magazine: "Always a juicy, jammy, generous wine, this year's Firehouse has an extra dollop of smoky oak to go with its ripe black cherry and plum flavors. Its fruity, youthful richness should firm up with a little time in the bottle, but for now it would serve grilled lamb chops well." From Wine Enthusaist: "One of the most popular mutt reds, this no-holds-barred blend offers plenty of ripe fruit, nice chocolaty tannins, and it’s a full, forward, well-balanced wine that has some genuine muscle behind it. There are notes of licorice and iron, hints of smoke and earth, all well integrated and complete." (8/1/2008)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Washington

- Washington has become one of the most important wine producing states in the United States, and development continues to grow rapidly. In 1969, when California was exploding as a wine producer, Washington had only two wineries, but by 2000 that number had passed 100. Most of Washington's grape crop goes to uses other than wine. Merlot and Chardonnay have been the most successful in Washington. It's interesting to note that Washington's prime wine regions are located at 46° north, along the same latitude as the legendary French wine districts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. During the summer, Washington averages more than two hours more sunlight each day compared to California.
