Cruising down the highway, from Monterey on the way to Los Angeles, was just too much travel with out a stop along the way. Driving past dozens of great wineries without so much as a quick stop seemed somehow, well somehow less than civilized. The possibility of a quick stop was negotiated, and a look-up of who was in the basic path of travel and had good wines was done, and a choice was made. The choice of the day was Babcock Winery and Vineyards in Lompoc.
The tasting room is easy to find and has a nice cozy Santa Barbara Wine Country feel (ok Lompoc / Santa Ynez as well) with its wood and country cozy decor. It really was a drive up and taste and not a drive through but it was a quick stop.
|A 5+ on the scale and ****|
The tasting room has gone through a bit of a renovation recently and I am sure it has only added to the comfy feel of the place.
Good wines that offer a lot to like and probably always a great surprise as each release comes along. If you are in the area stop on by and have a taste as 'recommended' here.

Oh yeah the second bottle taken home was the Fathom. a 7 and about *** (if memory serves)
