Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2017 Jan.)

This too is quite firmly reduced. Otherwise there is a lovely sense of vibrancy and punch to the delicious but quite serious middle weight flavors that brim with dry extract on the sappy and mineral-driven finish. The old vines are very much in evidence and despite this being quite firmly structured, it's not so firm that it couldn't be enjoyed after 5-ish years or so.

Vinous - Score: 89 (2018 Jan.)

Saturated dark red. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of candied black raspberry and licorice; as at so many other cellars, the first 2015 came across as distinctly roasted following the 2016s. Plush, sweet and superripe--in fact almost porty--with black cherry and bitter chocolate flavors accented by spices. Finishes with big, ripe but somewhat unrefined tannins and a slight warmth. But Loic Dugat notes that this wine is not quite 13.5% alcohol.
