Winemaker's Notes:

"The lithe, velvety style displays spicy oak, green olive and pretty blackberry and currant fruit which mingle effectively on the persistent finish. Should become a stylish red."

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.
