Babcock Cabernet Sauvignon ‘New Epoch’ Reserve 2006

SANTA YNEZ VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $40

Medium to full bodied with blackberry, mission fig, currant and apple mixed with organic soil, graphite, bay, redwood, nutmeg and mustard seed. Good fruit and soil integration, balanced with a velvet texture. Lots of complexity here. Oft overlooked in adolescence for prettier cousins, this one comes into her own winning hearts as a young adult. An excellent wine. (Reviewed 7/1/12)
