James Suckling 92
"This is a finely textured red with blackberries, chocolate and light vanilla undertones. Medium body. Delicious finish. A blend of 33 syrah, 27 cabernet sauvignon, 18 merlot, 11 cabernet franc, 3 mourvedre, 2 grenache, 2 counoise, 2 sangiovese and 2 petit verdot. Drink or hold." ~J.S.

"The Firehouse Red is a crazy blend of 33 Syrah, 27 Cabernet Sauvignon, 18 Merlot, 11 Cabernet Franc, and the rest Mourvdre, Grenache, Counoise, Sangiovese, and Petit Verdot. As always, it's a great value and has loads of ripe red and black fruits, spice, and dried flower aromas as well as a kiss of classy oak, medium body, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's a year-in, year-out no brainer." ~J.D.
Wine Enthusiast 90
"Appealing aromas of plum, toast, smoke, spice and cherry carry the nose. The palate brings plump, ripe fruit and barrel flavors tied together by a zip of acidity. Its a guaranteed crowd pleaser." ~S.S.

AT TAMARACK CELLARS IT'S ABOUT THE WINE.
When you visit the winery, you won't find us in a fancy chateau. Instead you'll find yourself immersed in the everyday workings of a Walla Walla winery, racking, blending and bottling wine, in a renovated firehouse located in a World War II Army Air Base.
Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack's first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. A year later Danny Gordon began working for Ron and over the years, took over the winemaking duties with the official title of "Maker of the Wine". Danny continues to excel in consistently crafting award winning, varietally correct wines sourced from some of the best vineyards in Washington.
IT'S NOT ABOUT ROMANCE...
It's about a passion for excellence. We buy grapes from the most renowned vineyards in Washington State and create our wines barrel by barrel. Whether it's our widely distributed Firehouse Red or one of the limited-production single vineyard reserve blends, Tamarack's wines offer a delicious expression of Washington vineyards' style and elegance in every bottle.
