THE WINE
The Hogue Cellars winemakers craft the Terroir line to showcase wines that are unique as varietals and that express the singularity of esteemed vineyard sites in Washington state. Made in limited quantities, these wines are sold only at the winery tasting room and by mail. The 2013 GSM displays a lively nose of raspberry, cherry, strawberry, grapes, black pepper, and spice, with touches of vanilla and cream. The palate displays wild strawberry, plum, spice, pepper, and nutmeg. Silky weight and great finesse are the hallmarks of this GSM. Pair this wine with duck, grass-fed tri-tip beef roast, or barbecued pork ribs.

VINTAGE AND VINEYARDS
The 2013 growing season saw above-average temperatures, providing the perfect conditions for red grapes throughout Washington state. The dry, warm conditions led to the grapes fully ripening and developing the excellent varietal flavors we know and expect from the region. The grapes were harvested primarily from Lonesome Spring Vineyard in the renowned Yakima Valley (97%), with a small amount coming from Andrews Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills (3%) for added color and weight. The long, sun-drenched days in the valley allowed grapes to fully ripen and produce expressive wines.

WINEMAKING NOTES
The grapes were hand harvested during daylight hours, to take advantage of the sun’s heat for warm, effective macerations. The grapes were crushed, destemmed, and fermented in small bins. The wine rested for 15 months in a mixture of old and new American oak barrels before being bottled in mid-August.
