Babcock Sauvignon Blanc Santa Rita Hills 2009

External Review:

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Right from the start, this distinctive wine conveys an amplified sense of richness and range, and, if showing a bare hint of Sauvignon herbs, it is keyed more on ripe melons and sports a fair dose of sweetening oak. Supple, slightly fleshy and moderately full on the palate, it has the fruity depth to develop further, and its firm back-palate balance suggests that age is just what it wants.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
