2008 Babcock Grand Cuvée Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., $30. · Attractive aromas of black cherries, red currants and strawberries with a touch of spice box. Shallow dark fruit flavors which have a noticeable underpinning of oak. The nose trumps the flavors in this linear wine. Does pick up a bit with time in the glass. Decent. Reviewed March 2, 2011
