Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2019 June)

A pretty, fresh and well-layered nose consists of both white and yellow orchard fruit, and in particular green apple, as well as notes of acacia, mineral reduction and citrus zest. There is excellent volume and punch to the muscular and imposingly-scaled flavors that exhibit a driving minerality on the cool, focused and strikingly long bitter lemon-inflected finish. This terrific effort is very clearly built-to-age yet could probably be enjoyed after only 5-ish years.
