Winemaker's Notes:

Every year some of our Finest Riesling vineyards stand head and shoulders above the rest. We choose several of these vineyard blocks, earmark them for Genesis and pick them at optimal ripeness. The result is a beautifully balanced, intense Riesling. Crisp and refreshing, the 2006 vintage has aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, grapefruit zest, bergamot and tropical fruit notes. The balance between its racy acidity and moderate sweetness makes the Genesis Riesling wonderful as an aperitif or a delicious complement to grilled shrimp or spicy Southeast Asian cuisine.

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.
