Babcock 2000 Fathom Red (Santa Barbara County)

When Brian Babcock calls this “the best [Bordeaux blend] I have made” you have to take him seriously. It is indeed excellent and seductive in its rich, ripe fruit and velvety tannins. Softer and plumper than Napa, but delicious and complex. Needs tinkering to develop greater finesse, but worth watching.
