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.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Keenly defined pure Riesling fruit is the centerpiece of this very bright, slightly sweet offering, and touches of stones and fresh flowers afford the wine with a bit of real complexity. Still very young-seeming and quite long on the palate, this is one that is sure to keep well, and it should develop nicely for several years providing that its immediate charms can be resisted.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Medium bodied with tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, and stone fruit; slight residual sugar on the finish. Thai food.

Lively and effusive for its pretty fruit and floral flavors, with a nice citrusy note to balance the slightly sweet finish.

Bright and juicy, off-dry but balanced with tangy acidity, offering pear and mineral flavors that linger on the subtle finish. Drink now through 2008.

Fresh and aromatic, this light-textured, off-dry Riesling delivers lots of apricot and pear fruit plus some floral and slate notes, all lingering on the generous finish. Drink now through 2012.

Greenish straw. Moderately light-bodied. Moderate acidity. Mild fruit. Mild sweetness. Leaves, minerals, bitter oranges. Bold acids enhance piquant fruit with a warm, lingering finish. Needs some time in the glass to blossom fully.
