Winemaker Notes

Washington State has been touted as perhaps the best Merlot producing region in the United States. Hogue Merlot lives up to this reputation. The aromas are earthy and toasty with black cherry, cocoa, and spice. The palate is rich, but not heavy with black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors. Pair with roast turkey, grilled bison burgers, or butternut-stuffed ravioli.

About Hogue

Washington’s premium wine industry began in the 1960s. The majority of the state’s wine grapes are planted east of the Cascade Range in the Columbia Valley appellation, which encompasses the Yakima Valley and Walla Walla appellations. The climate and soils produce grapes with intense fruit flavors and high natural acidity.

Location

Washington’s vineyards straddle the 46th and 47th parallels, at approximately the same latitude as Bordeaux and Burgundy.

Sunlight

Because of its northerly location, Washington receives up to two more hours of sunlight per day during the growing season than California’s North Coast. More sun means more flavor development in the grapes.
