Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92 (2018 Jan.)

There is just enough reduction present to warrant giving this a thorough aeration if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is outstanding mid-palate concentration to the very rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that buffer the firm finish that is beautifully complex and sneaky long. This is sufficiently tightly wound to merit extended cellaring yet I suspect that it will also be reasonably approachable young if that's your fruit preference.
