The New York Times, like most newspapers, tends to like these kind of pieces, but they recently published a list of 20 wines, under $20 for the season.
I’m not as big of a seasonal wine drinker as some and the statistics that I’ve seen show that most folks aren’t either (there isn’t a discernible difference for anything other than sparkling wine sales). But, these type of articles do drive some clicks.
I brought this one up, because there’s a familiar face there.
Hobo Wine Company’s Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma showed up in my Explorations Wine Club back in July/August of this year and now is getting itself some well deserved national attention.
My only small gripe….I counted that thing at $18 and suddenly it’s $19.99? In all seriousness, it’s a good honor for a small producer, especially one making the best known grape in America, from a region that every wine drinker would easily identify. That combination usually leads to higher prices per bottle than this sub $20 target that Hobo is consistently hitting with their Camp line of wines. Honestly, I’m happy for Kenny to get the attention, it’s well deserved!
