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.

Fruit on nose and body, mainly pear. Unexpected smokiness on nose as well. A little different, but liked it.
Being my first gewürztraminer I don't have any frame of reference for Hogue. I *can* tell you, though, that it certainly is a sweeter wine and I can't say I can taste a lot of acidity. Many descriptions say gewürztraminer tastes of litchis. I can't say that I've yet tried litchis, so I can't say if this is true in the case of Hogue. I taste a certain spiced honeyness in the wine. I think I should need to try a dry gewürztraminer to compare with this one, which, to my palette, is quite sweet.
