Babcock 2005 Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc (Sta. Rita Hills)

Editors' Choice

Those who loved Babcock's old Eleven Oaks bottling, don't worry. This is similar to it, but better. To counter Santa Rita's cool climate, Bryan Babcock put in some Los Alamos fruit, partially barrel fermented the wine, and added a dollop of Chardonnay to tame the beast. The wine is rich, zesty and balanced, and heads straight to the front of the pack.
