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.
A little dry for my taste. Much better after opening up for a bit, but still just okay
Scents are jam, dark berries, oak, and spice. Licorice and spicy berry flavors with a slight cream finish.
Excellent wine, full body and very smooth.
Excellent Syrah for the money. Tasted by 4 wine lovers who all agreed a very good wine.
Two and a half glasses
Nice and spicy! I love Yakima Valley Syrahs. Pepper and chocolate mix with blueberry, currant and oak.

Wine Tasting NotesThe Genesis Syrah has aromas and flavors of violet, mint, spice and smoke. We've blended in Lemberger, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot to add complexity and structure to the finished wine. Lemberger's black pepper and spice has a lot in common with Syrah and integrates well with the spice imparted by aging in American oak barrels. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with their tannin add structure to the wine. On the palate the wine has a good weight and structure. The silkiness in the mouth makes this Syrah a great food wine.
