Babcock Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Nucleus’ Estelle Vineyard 2004

SANTA YNEZ VALLEY |  CALIFORNIA | $50

Soft dark plum and berry fruit with hints of currant, met seamlessly with vibrant wood spices, cigar box and smooth tannins. A little barnyard on the nose adds some wildness. Well integrated and balanced, bold yet supple from age, with a long pleasant finish. Once a brash youth, this one has managed to find serenity in maturity. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 11/1/10)
