Hogue Genesis Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Price: ~$15.00

This was a gift, but we've had this on our wish list for a while. We think it was recommended by Sunset Magazine.

Yum. It was yum from the first sniff. Very flowery on the nose and the palate. We also smelled Fruit Loops (honest!) and tasted plum, cherry, and oak. The flavor lasted a long time, and the finish was very smooth. Lots of flavors going on in this wine. It's rather different from the California (in-yer-face-with-fruit) Cabs, but this was excellent. We're becoming huge fans of Washington State wines.

Living in Canada we pretty much only get Cali wines shipped up and, to this end, we don't get to try wines from...Washington State for example!

Fruit loops?!! ;)

Great post, thanks for sharing!
