Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Wine of the Week - 2004 Hogue Genesis Merlot

Mike and Gary Hogue were pioneers in the Washington wine industry, but sold to the Canadian wine giant, Vincor. Even though Hogue has grown to over 500,000 cases, they still make good wine. The 2004 Hogue Genesis Merlot has good fruit flavors and is mouth-filling. Even though it has a slightly tannic finish, it just flows so smoothly into your mouth and for $10 you can't go wrong.
