Hogue Merlot 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Tasting NotesWashington State has been touted as perhaps the best Merlot producing region in the United States. Hogue Merlot lives up to this reputation and delivers a warm and fruity wine with aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry, and lavender. This robust wine has a core of cranberry and cherry flavors with hints of vanilla and spice. With its long, fruit-forward finish and supple structure, the Merlot would go quite well with succulent barbecued pork or beef.

Hogue Cellars:
THE HOGUE CELLARS™, founded in 1982 by Mike and Gary Hogue, is located in Eastern Washington's Columbia Valley, the premiere 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 food.
