Babcock 1999 Fathom Red (Santa Barbara County)

Editors' Choice

Mainly Cabernet Franc and Merlot with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine advances the case for South Coast claret. It's one of the best ever from Santa Barbara. Juicy, ripe, balanced, rich, elegant, fairly soft and covered with lush oak, it's sheer pleasure now.
