Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2019 Jan.)

This is also markedly floral in character with additional breadth from the impressively pure combination of red cherry, currant, leather and a whiff of the sauvage along with a touch of oak. The beautifully energetic and detailed flavors are much finer than usual thanks mostly to the ultra-fine grain of the supporting tannins supporting the austere, serious and compact finish. This is a Dujac CdlR of refinement rather than one of imposing size and weight but even so, it is clearly constructed for the longer haul and it wouldn't surprise me if it needed 20+ years to fully mature.
