Babcock Black Label Cuvee 2002 Syrah

April 2nd, 2007

babcockUmmm Ummm good.

This is an exciting wine. Complex, yet “Simple and True”. It’s an inside joke within my family to call a wine “Simple and True”. I believe the story is that my Dad encountered some weird wine snob at a winery out west, who had several meaningless terms to describe a wine.

Anyway, I tried the Babcock Black Label Syrah in Chicago at a small wine shop called Que Syrah during a wine tasting. Be careful though, they have decorative plates placed throughout the store. We lightly bumped in to one, sending it shattering into little pieces.

babcockThis 2002 Syrah is a dark red-purple with lots of legs. The nose is of dark cherries. It has a very spicy taste, smoky, with a long strong mouth filling finish. This Syrah is peppery throughout, full bodied and long lasting.

I found a really neat online publication showing a group touring the Babcock winery back in 2003. You can check it out here http://www.grape-nutz.com/visits/cc/03_05/journal.html#bab . Also, according to their website, http://www.babcockwinery.com/ourwines.html, it appears all of the 2002 has been sold out, which is no surprise.

      A red wine hardly needs this consideration; it will contain abrasive materials in it.
