THE HOGUE CELLARS™, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premiere grape growing region of the state. The climate and soils of the Columbia Valley produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity. The wines have a liveliness and ripe, zesty fruit flavors that make them ideal complements to a wide range of food.
Nice caramel tones amidst the black and red fruit. Nice. - Tasted at Wine Spectator New World Wine Experience 2010
Plums on the nose. Very soft mouthfeel, tastes like cherry, plums, and dark berries, with a nice surprise of vanilla on the finish. Very pleasant and a good value.
External Reviews for Hogue Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope Reserve
Firm in texture, but open in style, with ripe currant and smoke flavors, lingering well. Drink now through 2012.
Tartly balanced, with ripe blackberry and currant flavors at the core, picking up pepper, licorice and herbal notes as the flavors linger on the chewy finish. Give it time to settle in. Better than bottles previously reviewed. Best from 2007 through 2013.
Supple, focused and appealing for its pretty cherry and spice flavors, picking up a roasted meat note as the finish lingers. Best from 2010 through 2014.
Classic Washington Cab, pitched about perfectly between rich, dark fruit and anise flavors, and pleasantly nuanced herbal aromatics. Ripe, almost chocolatey in texture, this is a great fall barbecue wine that will carry your through to your hardiest winter holiday fare.
Ripe and generous, a bit scattered now but it has lots of intriguing elements, offering classic currant and black cherry flavor at the core, edged with tomatos and herbs as ths flavors persist. Needs time to settle in. Best from 2005 through 2010.
