Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 88 (2020 January)

This is also aromatically quite spicy but with much more earth influence on the liqueur-like dark berry fruit aromas. There is even better volume and density thanks to the abundant dry extract imparting a velvety texture to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive mouthfeel that carries over to the caressing but firm, focused and lingering if slightly drying finish. I like everything about this wine except that the balance isn't quite dialed in. It's possible that this wine was affected by the bottling though that is hard to say with certainty.
