Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-94 (2018 Jun.)

Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to assess today. More interesting are the racy, tight, intense and relatively powerful medium weight flavors that possess first-rate mid-palate concentration thanks to the copious level of dry extract that also buffers the firm core of ripe acidity shaping the admirably long and well-balanced finale. Note that at least some patience will be required.

Vinous - Score: 92 (2018 Sep.)

(these virused vines typically produce a small crop owing to millerandage): Rich aromas of stone fruits and hazelnut, with hints of citrus peel and flowers. Tactile, broad and adamantly dry, with its stone fruit and spice flavors given additional sex appeal by an element of orange zest. Finishes chewy, dry and long.
