BABCOCK 2011 PINOT NOIR ESTATE SANTA RITA HILLS 750mL

Winemaker's Notes: "This cuvee is not yesterday's Sta. Rita Hills bottling. It stems from a more rigorous selection of some of my best lots of Estate fruit resulting from my new farming techniques. With a label that still links it to all my Club Royale wines, the overall package looks and feels a bit more like the Pinot's in my Terroir portfolio. This wine is now the focal point of my effort to create a single flagship wine for distribution throughout the US. Since it is a blend of some of the nicer lots from my vineyard, it drinks a bit like the Oceanís Ghost; baked dark cherries with suggestions of cinnamon and sarsaparilla. After it has been open for a while, the oak comes together with the fruit, creating a nice mocha quality. The mouth feel is plush with viscous sweet cherries that are accompanied by some of the complexities from the nose. It has that earthy signature that I find in many of the better Pinots that come out of the highway 246 side of the Appellation."
