Hogue Pinot Grigio Columbia Valley 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells fairly fruity with apple fruit, accented with hints of grapefruit and white pepper. A touch sweet and lacking some acidity, this rolls over the palate but seems hollow in the middle. It’s soft and easy to drink with light peachy fruit that drops off on the finish fairly quickly. 83pts

Hogue Cellars:
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.

Grassy nose, with hints of coconut. Nice body - smooth, and a little acidic. Well balanced, simple. I don't like Pinot Grigio usually, and I found this one to be drinkable.

Very fruity upon entry, Apple, sweet, with a nice coating of Lemon and a slight peachy hint. Had this with a broiled piece of steel head caught fresh on the Columbia river. Very special

Nice aromas of apricot, melon, and a hint of rose petal. Flavors matched the aromas. Very pleasing, except on the finish, where a slightly bitter aftertaste remained.

Very fresh wine just harvested and bottled. Stone fruit and melon with good acidity. Drink now. I really liked this wine. Very approachable.

A fine example of why this fresh, fruity variety is gaining new fans. Apple and melon flavors are round and supple, with a creamy texture. Crisp acids make everything perky.

Soft and pretty, with cantaloupe and honey flavors on a dry, easy-drinking frame. Drink now.

Light and crisp, with lemony pear flavors on a lively frame. Drink now.

Friendly, fruity, likeable wines such as this may steal some of Oregon's thunder when it comes to affordable Pinot Gris. Fresh flavors of pear and apple are softly cushioned in a spicy wine with hints of citrus rind adding interest to the finish.

Another fine effort in a continuing series of outstanding PGs from Hogue. This is tart and stylish, loaded with citrus and bracingly acidic. Flavors meld lemon, lime, lemon verbena, orange peel and a slice of pear.
