Tamarack Cellars Syrah 2012

$24.99 (PA tax not included)

90 points, the Wine Advocate. Restrained use of French oak allows the fruit from this 3-vineyard blend, made from 100% Syrah, to shine. Balanced, dark red fruit with notes of leather and bacon fat (yes, bacon) lead with food-friendly acidity and finesse on the palate. A great “summer grill” red!

Tamarack Cellars produces the finest quality for value wines from Washington State. See our tasting notes below for the wine’s flavor profile.

Description

Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack’s first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. The goal was to make elegant, balanced, delicious wines and offer them at a fair price. Years later, and now up to 20,000 cases each year, the focus remains the same. Tamarack Cellars hand-crafts consistently outstanding wines for a great price.

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.
