Every year, a very small percentage of the wines featured in the $20 and under wine club are from the United States. They must be quality, nonmanipulated, and farmed the right way, and they must offer good value. One family in California has heard the call. Kenny Likitprakong and his wife, Lynn, started Hobo Wine Company in 2002 by producing just two barrels of Dry Creek Zinfandel. Today they make a staggering amount of wines from across Northern California, the majority of which are produced from organic and sustainably farmed vineyards. We've always been huge fans of “Parts & Labor,” and the new vintage is no different. From their website:
“The 2020 P&L is somewhat of a departure from previous vintages. The fires in 2020 took a toll on what we were able to harvest. In particular, we had very little syrah and a lot less grenache than normal. We tried to come up wIth a blend that stIll fIlls the sensibility of thIs wine even if it is characteristically a bit different. This year, the blend is 46% carignane, 24% grenache, 7% pinot noir, 6% syrah, 6% petite sirah, 3% barbera, and 2% valdiguié. ProductIon is barely half of a normal year. Each lot was brought into the winery separately and fermented in stainless steel tanks. All fermentation were uninoculated and malolactics proceeded spontaneously. The base blend was made in December and the final blend was made before bottling. Aged 100% in stainless steel tanks and large oak foudres, bottled July of 2021.”
In the glass, there’s bright red fruit and spice on the nose. The palate is fresh and medium in weight, making this wine wonderfully easy to drink. A perfect wine to have for burger night at home.
