Tamarack Firehouse Red 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Deceptively sweet aromas of strawberries, raspberries and rose petals. The flavors are dark, rich, lusciously mouthwatering, with cherries, boysenberries, tart plum skins, hints of leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and coffee beans. The tannins are firm, but not a bit edgy and the finish lingers with just a touch of anise. A truly lovely vintage.

Wine EnthusiastTamarack's Firehouse Red incorporates 12 different grapes in the blend, though most are in tiny percentages. Nonetheless the wine is focused and deep, with luscious boysenberry, licorice and dark chocolate flavors wrapping together in a complex and textural whole.

Wine AdvocateAn excellent value, the 2012 Firehouse Red is a plump, supple and medium-bodied effort that's loaded with black cherry, red currants, licorice and spice. Enjoy this fruit-forward, yet classy effort over the coming couple of years.

Wine SpectatorTaut, with a tang of acidity to balance the fleshy red plum and rhubarb pie flavors, persisting on the smoky finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and others. Drink now through 2017.
