Winemaker Notes

Big, earthy, robust Pinot that stems from the blended characteristics of great Sta. Rita Hills vineyards. There is a jolt of dark power; baked black fruits and cherries with gobs of earth and spice. Calling it complex does not do it justice. After it's open for a while, the oak comes together with the fruit, creating a nice mocha quality, and the mouth feel turns plush with a succulent viscosity.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Coming from a selection of estate fruit (75% Babcock and 25% Bentrock) and aged 18 months in a third new French oak, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills is ripe and layered, with lots of black cherry, plum, spice, pepper and a touch of leather. This beauty is medium to full-bodied, has outstanding purity and a big finish. The focus here is on fruit and it will be a total crowd-pleaser over the coming 4-6 years.

With 80 acres of grapes farmed meticulously by Babcock Winery and Vineyards for low yields, and ripe fruit of exceptional quality, winemaker Bryan Babcock understands that great wines begin in the vineyard. One of California's brightest stars in the field of winemaking, Babcock was not only selected by the Los Angeles Times as one of the "Ten Best Winemakers of the Year," he was also named by this influential daily as "Most Courageous Winemaker of the Year" for his daring style. The prestigious James Beard Foundation chose Bryan as one of the "Top Ten Small Production Winemakers in the World," the only American chosen for this oenological dream team. In choosing Bryan for this award, David Moore wrote, "Bryan Babcock best exemplifies the traits I look for in a great winemaker. The quality of Bryan's wines speak for themselves, yet it is his personal commitment to excellence that stands out so much. His relentless experimentation, his willingness to explore the possibilities with so many grape varieties, and his aesthetic are a world apart from the usual American approach to winemaking."

Sta. Rita Hills Wine

Santa Barbara, California

A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.

The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
