The 2007 Chardonnay Babcock is much more exotic with ripe pineapple pear white currant quince and some subtle earthy loamy soil undertones. The wine has fabulous fruit sensational flavor penetration on the palate but no sense of heaviness. Extraordinary precision gives this wine amazing vibrancy in spite of its formidable size. It is hard to know how these will age but they seem incredibly pure and very long although I would still opt for drinking them in their first 2-3 years of life.

Sappy pit fruit flavors are enlivened by peppery spice and become more tangy with air. Finishes waxy and firm with a repeating spiciness. This became more lively with air: decant it a bit if you plan to serve it in the next year or so.
