Grapes are sourced from some of Washington's best vineyards: Tapteil, Weinbau, Ciel du Cheval, Seven Hills, Dionysus, Bacchus and Gamache. The 2012 vintage is a blend of 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, crushed gently and dropped by gravity into 1.5 ton bins, cold soaked 48 hours minimum, then inoculated with a variety of yeasts. It is then hand-punched and pressed directly to barrel where the wine finishes both primary and secondary fermentations. The wine was aged for 19 months, in 50% new oak, the majority being American with some French and Hungarian oak from select coopers and a variety of forests. It has dark aromas of cherry, mocha and blueberry leading to ripe plum, blackberry pie and flavors of a savory red wine reduction sauce, layered with intense chocolate and rich, velvety tannins.
Tamarack Cellars is located in a restored World War II Fire Station and Barracks. Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack's first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. They continue to produce small lots of hand-crafted wines from select vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley, Red Mountain, Rattlesnake Hills, Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills, Columbia Valley and Yakima Valley AVAs.
