Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-95 (2020 January)

There is just enough wood present to warrant mentioning framing the cool and pure essence of red currant, cassis, plum and a variety of spice wisps. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess outstanding mid-palate density thanks to the abundant dry extract that imparts a highly seductive mouthfeel as well as buffers the firm tannic spine shaping the strikingly long finish where a touch of bitter cherry pit character emerges. This offers excellent aging potential yet it's not so compact that it could not be approached in its youth if that's your preference.
