Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92 (2019 Jan.)

Here there is no reductive funk to suppress the appeal of the overtly floral-inflected nose that reflects notes of violet, lilac, lavender and rose petal along with a fresh mix of red and dark cherries. The sleek, intense and almost pungent mineral-driven medium weight flavors possess terrific delineation on the dusty, firm and youthfully austere finish that goes on and on. This is decidedly backward at present and is going to require extended cellaring to arrive at its apogee.
