    Winemaker Notes

    The vintage was exceptional with a fairly cool summer and then a glorious Indian summer in September, October and November. These conditions led to both a longer than usual hang time and very ripe fruit. Because the fruit ripened so late in the season, the nighttime temperatures were quite low which contributed to high natural acidity at very high sugar levels. It was truly a winemakers dream. Color was very dark from the start and has held nicely. The flavors are deep, complex and very ripe without being cloying or flabby. Because of the fruits combined brightness from natural acidity and dark brooding aromas due to a high degree of ripeness, the overall impression is one of balance and power. Fermented in small (1.5 ton) open top containers, punched down by hand, pressed directly to barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

    Tamarack Cellars, Washington

    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 about a passion for excellence. Tamarack Cellars buys grapes from the most renowned vineyards in Washington State and create our wines barrel by barrel. Whether it's the 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.
