Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91 (2019 Oct.)

An overtly floral nose consists mostly of spiced pear, citrus and algae-infused aromas that are trimmed in subtle wood influence. There is a lush, even opulent mouth feel to the seductively textured middle weight plus flavors that possess lovely minerality that adds a sense of lift to the impressively long finish that tightens up significantly. In contrast to the Montmains, this is more powerful but less precise and even a bit less complex, at least today. Note that at least some patience is advised.
