Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 88-91 (2019 Jan.)

An overtly spicy and appealingly fresh, cool and pure nose reflects notes of black pinot fruit, violet, Asian tea and a wisp of anise. There is both good volume and mid-palate fleshiness to the delicious and seductively textured flavors that culminate in an agreeably punchy, focused and mildly austere finale. Like the Lavières, this is sufficiently tightly wound to need at least some patience and has the stuffing to reward up to a decade of cellaring.
