Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2020 January)

A more elegant if not more complex nose merges pretty aromas of red and dark currant, a plenitude of floral elements along with hints of leather, sandalwood and earth. There is outstanding intensity to the supple mid-palate of the big-bodied flavors that firm up substantially and immediately on the lingering and highly complex finish. The supporting tannins are slightly spiky today but because they seem phenolically mature, I suspect that they will mellow out with time in bottle.
