Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92-95 (2019 Jun.)

A more elegant and airier nose is comprised by pure notes of acacia, spice, tea and a wide range of white-fleshed fruit. The succulent and notably more refined medium-bodied flavors possess an abundance of mouth coating sap that serve to buffer the marked firm acid spine shaping the gorgeously long and classy finish. This is excellent and should prove to be quite long-lived.

Vinous - Score: 92-94 (2018 Sep.)

Aromas of ripe peach, oatmeal and minerals, plus a touch of reduction. The palate conveys a silky richness and an impression of density that verges on thick, but strong acidity intensifies the wine's fruit and carries it through a very long, palate-staining finish. Splendid potential here owing to the combination of density of material and ripe acidity.
