Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2016 Apr.)

Very deep golden color. An openly exotic if still fresh nose offers very good if not truly stunning complexity on the dried fruit aromas that include mango, peach and apricot along with the hallmark floral scents. There is seriously good concentration, indeed this is positively unctuous, to the big-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that possess terrific depth on the explosively long finale. This is impressive in every way yet I wouldn't describe it as typical and while this is going to live for years I'm not convinced that it wouldn't be better to drink this now as it risks becoming heavy in time. In short, this is imposing if particular.
