Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 96 (2020 June)

This has already begun to change aromatically since my last review of it as the 2015 vintage character is more apparent with its very ripe white orchard fruit, floral, smoke and mildly phenolic scents. The broad-shouldered flavors are ultra-rich with so much dry extract that the mid-palate is borderline creamy and opulent while the mildly warm finish just goes on and on. This is imposingly powerful and massively constituted and should age for years. With that said, I find this lavishly opulent effort to be somewhat less refined and stylish than usual and would compare it to the 2009.
