Lovely raspberry, vanilla and currant flavors, with a tangy tartness of citrus on the palate. Oaky tannin comes through on the finish. A vibrant, fresh version of Zinfandel.
Hobo Wine Co is a project from Kenny Likitprakong, a young pro-skateboarder-turned-winemaker who’s also behind Folk Machine and Banyan Wines. In many ways, Kenny represents a sea change in the California wine industry. Driven by a new generation, the focus is slowly shifting away from 100-point, wallet-busting wines toward affordable bottles blended from independent vineyard sites. By avoiding the cost of owning land in wine country’s fanciest zip codes, young winemakers are making wines you can afford to buy more than once.
