Babcock 2006 Fathom Red (Santa Ynez Valley)

Babcock's Fathom seriously needs heat to ripen, and 2006 just didn't offer enough warmth. As a result, this Merlot and Petit Verdot blend has a stubbornly green, minty streak. It's very dry, with some good chocolate- covered cherry candy flavors, but that tartness detracts.
