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.

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.
