Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2020 January)

This too is mildly reduced which does in the fruit but not the earth and spice nuances. Otherwise there is fine power and punch to the delicious, robust and full-bodied flavors that are shaped by very raspy, indeed somewhat chewy, tannins on the noticeably wood-inflected finish. This appears to have the requisite density to eventually buffer the tannins as they resolve but at present the balance is awkward.
