Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 91-94 (2019 April)

Light reduction knocks down the underlying fruit but I doubt that it will last. There is again excellent energy to the textured and stony medium weight flavors that are not particularly dense but I really like the excellent depth and length. This is impressive because while it's no monster of concentration, it's beautifully well-balanced and should reward a decade plus of cellaring.
