Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-95 (43466)

This is the first wine to display more than a trace application of wood and here it's not subtle though not so prominent as to dominate the otherwise cool, restrained and elegant wisps of earth, dark berries and a hint of game. The mineral-driven but enveloping middle weight plus flavors possess muscle and plenty of punch on the mocha-infused, youthfully austere and very serious finish. This is a big wine in the context of what is typical for the vintage and should amply repay extended keeping.
