Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-93 (2018 Jun.)

An overtly phenolic nose (think olive oil scents) displays notes of pear, green apple, floral and spice notes that are trimmed in discreet wood nuances. There is terrific intensity to the broad-shouldered yet relatively refined big-bodied flavors that brim with minerality on the clean, dry, citrusy and youthfully austere finale. This is presently very backward but possesses fine aging potential.
