Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 94 (2017 Oct.)

Once again the nose displays some reduction though in this case it's "clean" in the sense that there is no associated funk and with air it reluctantly begins to reveal discreet notes of citrus, acacia blossom and soft pear. There is excellent volume to the delicious, caressing and sappy medium weight plus flavors that initially are rich to the point of being borderline soft but as the wine sits in the glass, it slowly begins to tighten up and become more precise on the beautifully persistent finish. I suspect that this will continue to tighten up if not actually shut down. In sum, this too is really quite lovely.
