Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89 (2017 Oct.)

A discreet touch of wood sets off the cool and notably floral and citrus-suffused aromas that are composed mainly of ripe white and yellow fruit and petrol nuances. There is once again good volume and mid-palate fat to the rich, round and seductive flavors that are at once sleek but generous, all wrapped in a more complex and persistent finale that also evidences a subtle trace of warmth.

Vinous - Score: 89-91 (2016 Jul.)

Bright, light yellow. Stone and mint aromas are lifted by a topnote of lime blossom. Juicy and slightly dry-edged, with a piquant grapefruit pith flavor braced by strong minerality for the year. Comes across as citrussy and tight, even austere for the vintage, and not giving up much today.
