Merlot Genesis Hogue Cellars Columbia Valley Washington 2006
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.
I can hardly put this down. Very smooth. cherry and chocolate.
very smooth and full of flavor
This wine is best when allowed to open for a long time - even a day is not bad. But once fully aired, this is the best wine I have ever had under $60 (retail). A very "big" wine. Full flavored.
