Make it easy on yourself… Tamarack Cellars 2016 Firehouse Red

For many of you,

even under normal circumstances

a trip to the grocery store is

a necessary evil. 

Now with shortages, hoarding and long lines,

it can be worse than a necessary evil. 

It can be just plain evil.

It’s Wine Thursday!

our weekly good-wine-at-a-good-price

that-you-can-find recommendation. 

This week, we decided to push the “easy” button. 

Our featured wine enjoys wide distribution

so regardless of which major grocery you choose to tackle,

you might not find peanut butter, you might not find kidney beans

but you should find this wine.




Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red is one of our old reliables. 

We’ve been touting it for years for its mellow tannins and pleasant spiciness. 

 It’s a blend of several grapes with merlot, syrah and cabernet sauvignon leading the way. 

Name a roast, any roast:  roast beef, roast chicken, roast pork, even roasted mushrooms. 

If it’s roasted, this blend will pair well with it. 

And it couldn’t be easier to find.  It’s at Costco for $13.79. 

It’s on the shelf at Fred Meyer and QFC for $15.99. 

Safeway has it for $16.09, Whole Foods for $16.99 and New Seasons for $17.99. 

If you’re practicing social distancing,

you can order it on line from
