Babcock Grand Cuvee Chardonnay Santa Barbara County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Babcock Santa Rita Hills Rita's Earth Cuvee Chardonnay 2005 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 90 POINTS The 2005 Chardonnay Rita's Earth Cuvee displays a greenish hue to its light gold/straw color, attractive notes of orange and tangerine blossoms, crisp acidity, full-bodied, juicy fruit, and a subtle touch of wood. This is a tasty, terroir-driven white to drink over the next 1-2 years.NVWE NOTES: A hint of oaky spice brings elegance to this lovely Chardonnay, but never challenges the wine's essentially fruity nature. Immediately upon opening, its aromas of fresh apple and white peach surge to the forefront, gaining with airing, subtle vanilla and toasted nut hints that bring a sweet note to counterpoint the wine's mineral undercurrents. It is plush on the palatte, but never less than refreshing. And there is a seamless feel that carries through a lingering finish, where pretty vanilla and toasted nut notes once again make a quiet appearance.BABCOCK SANTA RITA HILLS RITA'S EARTH CUVEE CHARDONNAY 2005
