Babcock Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Ynez Valley 2008

External Review:

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. The obvious and frontal nature of this wine makes one wonder why it was rushed to market while it is still so simple and unformed. It smacks slightly of sweetness and has a fair measure of juicy fruit to its credit, but it is far from showing a serious side and seems like a basic quaff at present.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
