Winemaker's Notes

The Genesis Syrah is selected from specific vineyards to emphasize luscious fruit and depth of color. The 2006 vintage was exceptional; resulting in a wine with bright red cherry and raspberry aromas augmented by oak notes of cedar and cinnamon toast. On the palate, it is very fruity and is reminiscent of currants with a strawberry essence that lingers, along with a bit of cinnamon spice, charred mesquite, and cherry wood. The structure is subtle yet firm. Pair with stuffed manicotti in marinara sauce or pasta dishes served with a sweet or spicy red sauce.

Critical Acclaim

"Hogue's Genesis Syrahs are reliably open and generous, a lot of fruit for the money. In 2006, Hogue's red winemaker, Jordan Ferrier, captured the freshness of a great vintage, from sources in the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope. It's as rich as chocolate cake, but its texture remains remarkably lifted and succulent. "

We opened this when a few "foodies" dropped by for dinner. Everyone loved it, a very nice all-around wine. Buy one, and you'll be back for more.
