2016 Babcock Vineyard Pinot Noir
90 Pts. Wine Enthusiast
Neighboring vintner Bryan Babcock of Babcock Winery traded us four tons of his 2016 Pinot Noir grapes, resulting in a one-time production of this wine. He provided us with three different clones: 115, 777, and 2A (aka Waddensville). Clones 115 and 777 hail from a special section of the Babcock Vineyard that Bryan has named "Ocean's Ghost", and the wines produced from this section bear this name. The clones were harvested and fermented separately in very small lots, aged in 50% new French oak for 18 months, and then bottled in May 2018.
