Babcock Syrah ‘Frying Pan’ 2005

SANTA BARBARA COUNTY | CALIFORNIA | $50
Deep purple plum with blackberry and black currant superbly integrated with complex flavors of anise, porcini, cacao and mineral spirits. Robust, forward fruit, full bodied, slightly glossy and a luxurious silky texture. I know three Bings: cherry, Chandler and Crosby — this is the crooner, smooth, rich timbre and all. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 4/13/14)
