Hobo Wine Co., Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is intended to be approachable, consumed relatively young, and a versatile food companion. The Approach is towards a more subtle, more restrained, almost lighter style of Cabernet Sauvignon than what may be typical in California these days, but also some- thing that is bright and characteristic of the variety. Lean and a little rustic like a lot of French wine, but fruit forward like the best of California.
The grapes for this wine come about 58% from their own block in Mitch Patin’s Lloyd Vineyard on West Soda Rock Road planted in 1998 towards the southern end of Alexander Valley on the banks of the Russian River. 37% comes from a steep knoll called Trieb Vineyard in the more northern reaches of the Alexander Valley. The remaining 5% is a small amount of Malbec from the J Rickards Vineyard in Cloverdale.
