Tamarack Merlot 2008


SKU 30301


Roasted coffee beans and cherry cola aromas. On the palate, bright ripe fruits abound. Sweet plum, cherry and blackberry pie come to mind, layered with vanilla, milk chocolate and rich, velvety tannins.

Wine EnthusiastTamarack blends grapes from an astonishing number of sites scattered across the length and breadth of the Columbia Valley, and yet makes wines that are distinctive, polished, generous, and focused. The 2008 Merlot includes 5% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc. Its structure is firmly Cab-like, its fruit broadly displayed across the midpalate, a mix of ripe strawberries and cherries dusted with sweet baking spices and cocoa. It's a joyride from start to finish.

Wine SpectatorLean, lithe and nicely balanced to play smoky black tea notes around a gentle core of cherry and raspberry fruit. Drink now through 2015. 1,036 cases made.
