Hogue Genesis Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
from Columbia Valley, Washington
The rich flavors in this wine comes primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon, but are enhanced by the addition of 15% Merlot for elegance and 4% Lemberger and Cabernet Franc for character. The resulting wine has cherry, cranberry, and vanilla aromas and flavors integrated with toasty oak. A slight bell pepper note in the background adds complexity. The texture is soft and velvety, with nice oak, vanilla and clove note in the balanced tannic finish.

A Customer - Urbana, IL
I tried this wine on a whim at my 5th anniversary dinner at Biaggi's here in Urbana-Champaign. I generally exclusively drink wine that orginates from Italy, Chile or Australia. I didn't think Washington would be especially adept at creating a great wine. I was proven wrong. I guess grapes really know no location. This wine was full bodied complex in flavor with a hint of spice and dry with a nice finish. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a lot of flavor in their wine and enjoys a good dry red.
