Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 89-92 (2016 Apr.)

Generous wood fights somewhat with the ripe liqueur-like nose that is comprised primarily by notes of both red and dark pinot fruit that are liberally laced with pungent earth nuances. There is excellent richness to the lush and markedly round medium weight flavors that deliver fine length on the solidly complex and persistent finish. This robust and slightly rustic effort is not quite as structured as the Chaponnières though make no mistake, it too is going to require at least 5 to 8 years of bottle age to arrive at its full apogee.
