Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89 (2019 Jun.)

A deft touch of wood sets off the mildly fruity but pretty aromas of pepper-inflected red raspberry, cherry and earth. There is good vibrancy to the barely medium weight (though by no means dilute) flavors that possess fine delineation that carries over to the appealingly textured if youthfully austere, linear and compact finish. This is not especially complex but it's certainly attractive in its fashion and with a few years of cellaring it may well develop more depth. In sum, this isn't deep but I like it anyway.

Vinous - Score: 91 (2018 Sep.)

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Very pure aromas of pear, white peach and white flowers. Penetrating and minerally on the palate, conveying a sappy quality and a light touch to its precise flavors of citrus fruits and saline minerality. Finishes with excellent rising length and cut.
