Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-94 (2019 January)

A broad-ranging nose features notes of violet, lavender, tea, dark cherry and plenty of earth and game nuances. The sleek but notably more powerful big-bodied flavors possess excellent concentration in the context of what is typical for the 2017 vintage, all wrapped in a stony, muscular and solidly persistent finish. As is the case with a number of wines in the range, the tannins are coarse and grippy but they should soften and round out with extended cellaring which by the way this will definitely require.
