Babcock Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Ocean's Ghost 2007
Garnet hue is joined by rich ripe fruit in the nose. There is a touch of spice that lies somewhere between nutmeg and ginger and there is a pinch of that earthy forest quality that is typical of the estate grown fruit. In the mouth the wine is very soft and sweet. It's a dry wine but when you blend impeccably farmed grapes the result is sweet.
With new vineyards currently being planted, a new barrel aging facility, and a renowned winemaker who will continue to make wine outside of the box, Babcock Winery and Vineyards promises to continue its tradition and reputation as one of the finest and most consistently reliable wine producers in California.
