Very, very few wineries make pure varietal Counoise, and none any better than this outstanding example. Tasting a bit like Grenache, a bit like Pinot Noir, but different from either, this fresh wine bursts with berries and tongue-tickling acidity. A hint of vanilla cream runs through the finish.
Tamarack Cellars Counoise Ciel du Cheval
Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack’s first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. The goal was to make elegant, balanced, delicious wines and offer them at a fair price. Years later, and now up to 20,000 cases each year, the focus remains the same. Tamarack Cellars hand-crafts consistently outstanding wines for a great price.
