Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2019 Jan.)

A background application of wood surrounds the cool and airy aromas of dark cherry, plum, earth and a whisper of the sauvage. There is terrific intensity to the beautifully delineated mineral-driven flavors that possess a refined mouthfeel before culminating in a saline but warm, clipped and very short finish. I'm not sure what happened here as this seems completely different than any of the prior wines, so whether it was just this sample or not, I would describe it as awkward and odd would be an understatement. I should have a chance to review this again from barrel next year but for now, it doesn't seem promising. Not Rated.
