Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About The Hogue Cellars:

The Hogue Cellars, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premier 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 foods.
