2009 Tamarack Cellars "Firehouse Red" Columbia Valley Red Blend

SKU #1066299

We love bright, complex and affordable reds coming out of the Pacific Northwest, like this red hot beauty from Tamarack Cellars. Their Firehouse Red combines fruit from all over the Columbia Valley, from the Horse Heaven Hills to Walla Walla to the Rattlesnake HIlls, Red Mountain and Wahluke Slope, and it's a unique combination of grapes, too, showing the potential of the region for a wide selection of varietals. This vintage deftly belnds Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot and Carmenere and aged is in a combination of French, American and a few Hungarian oak barrles for 16 months. Balanced and fresh, with a lush midpalate, fresh raspberry fruit, a turn of peppery spice and a little espresso, this wine is at home at the table with everything from grilled flatbread pizza to chicken roasted under a brick.

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.
