Winemaker's Notes

Number 1 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"Lush, seamlessly integrated flavors of ripe, sweet blackberry, blueberry and minerals; totally in control in the face of so much rich fruit..."
-Wine News

"Ripe, rich, a bit spicy for its sins and full of black cherry and cassis fruitiness... there is an awful lot of flavor and honest drinkability to be found here, and when its oh-so-inviting price tag is put into the calculus, this one adds up to a big winner for current consumption."
-Connoisseurs' Guide

The 2003 Genesis Cabernet Sauvignon is what fine wines are all about. This is a spicy wine at its core with anise, clove and coffee bean accenting its bright fresh cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. It is a rich, full-bodied, expressive wine that still shows some finesse with fine, almost powdery tannins and well-integrated oak. Tobacco and black pepper linger on the finish. Pair this wine with grilled tri-tip steak, aged cheeses or dark chocolate.

Hogue Genesis wines represent the culmination of a winemaking process that selects classic varietal wine grapes from some of the most distinctive vineyard sites in Eastern Washington state. In twenty years of winemaking in Washington the Hogue Cellars winemaking team has identified which vineyards and microclimates have the best potential to produce classic varietal wines.

*Note: Due to the rich, extracted nature of this wine, it may contain some naturally occuring wine sediment. Consisting of wine solids, it is harmless and does not affect the quality of the wine. A day before the wine is to be served, stand the bottle upright, allowing the sediment to settle to the bottom. If desired, gently pour the wine into a clean decanter, leaving the sediment in the bottle.
