    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Hogue's Genesis Syrahs are reliably open and generous, a lot of fruit for the money. In 2006, Hogue's red winemaker, Jordan Ferrier, captured the freshness of a great vintage, from sources in the Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope. It's as rich as chocolate cake, but its texture remains remarkably lifted and succulent.

    We opened this when a few "foodies" dropped by for dinner. Everyone loved it, a very nice all-around wine. Buy one, and you'll be back for more.

    Good, but too light. Lacked full fruitiness and depth. Satisfactory but without characteristics to make it memorable. The W&S score is too high -- it should be an 88-89.

    Dark red and purplish in hue, the Hogue Genesis 2006 has fruity aroma and flavor (red berries) and a spicy finish. The wine lacks sufficient body and tastes a bit watery. While it's drinkable, there are definitely bottles that are just as good at lower cost.

    Too light, didn't have much body at all. Not a rating in the 90s. Would not buy again.
