Balancing Act is a new label from Tamarack Cellars. The idea is to produce affordable wines that simply over deliver. I know…you have heard that a thousand times before, so why is this one different? The wines are made in a hyper-negociant model. Some of the wine is made in house, some is from traditional build sources and some is from very high end wineries who have a few extra barrels. The wine sources are blended to create a final, balanced and delicious wine; hence the name Balancing Act. Balancing Act is a project that owner Ron Coleman has been thinking about for years. Ron's long-term connections within the Washington wine industry has allowed this label to come to fruition.

    Sleek and refined, offering appealing notes of black cherry, toasted spice and tea. Drink now through 2022.

    The 2015 Chardonnay Balancing Act is another lightly colored, juicy, racy white that offers enjoyable aromas and flavors of stone fruits, citrus and hints of herbs.

    The value priced red is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Balancing Act, and it's made from 100% Cabernet. It offers loads of dark fruit, chocolate and charcoal notes, medium to full body, plenty of fruit and a good finish. It's terrific effort to drink over the coming 4-5 years.

    Baked apple and baking spice aromas lead to a lightly creamy palate capped off by a tart, lemony finish. It provides a lot of appeal.
