2006 Hogue, Columbia Valley, Cabernet (55%) Merlot (45%), $11.99 (NH Liq Store). Alky 13.7%. An excellet wine and an excellent value.

Matched with Rib Eyes, baked baby red potatoes, and sliced ripe purple Brandywine tomato from Mexico. Ummm good!

I agree that several Hogue wines represent good value.

Popped a second bottle last night. Some unsettling lumpy sediment had settled under the screw cap and got into the wine requiring straining through our decanter funnel.

It was fine after that and enjoyed it with rib eyes again, this time with corn cakes, and salad.
