2016 Tamarack Spice Box Columbia Valley Red Wine
Notes of raspberry, rose hip and sandalwood on the nose, with a good mouthfeel that contrasts between sweet and savory. The palate leads with candied cranberries, sautéed porcini mushrooms and white pepper, with dried cherries and baking spices following on the long, smooth finish.

About This Wine:
In other words, there’s no other wine like it. And that’s certainly true of the 2016 Spice Box Red Wine from Washington’s Columbia Valley.
A bold blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc — along with a splash of “winemaker's proprietary red blend” — this wine offers vibrant aromas and robust flavors in a medium-bodied style. That makes “Spice Box” easy to drink, and its smooth finish (with lots of dark fruit, spice and just a hint of tobacco) seems to say, “More, please!”
The grapes for the wine were sourced from premium vineyards in Washington’s Columbia Valley, which sit at the same latitude as Bordeaux, France — the historic home of the king of grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon. No wonder Tamarack Cellars' 2016 "Spice Box" Red Wine has such luscious dark fruit character. Take a sip, and you’ll agree it truly is a wine without a match.
