Hobo Wine Co, Folk Machine Parts & Labour 2015
A forward-thinking winery in Sonoma, using grapes from interesting vineyard sites with old vines. The 2015 vintage is a blend of 44% Syrah from a biodynamically farmed vineyard in Potter Valley, 30% Carignan from 100 year old organically farmed vines in Redwood Valley, 12% Grenache from Arroyo Seco, and 10% Barbera from Fox Hill in Mendocino. Plums, cherries, black fruits and spice aromas lead into a palate of autumnal fruit with black pepper. It is succulent with soft tannins, making it a great wine for drinking with or without food.
