Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-95 (2018 Jan.)

A very dense nose flashes notes of plum liqueur, black fruit and a wonderfully broad range of exotic Asian-style spice that in particular includes sandalwood. The rich, generous and velvet-textured flavors caress the palate thanks to the seemingly endless reserves of dry extract that imparts a real sense of volume to the firm, dusty and mouth coating finish that displays sneaky good length. In sum this is at once powerful yet seductive and in particular I like the sense of harmony. This should be genuinely great in time.
