Allen Meadows 93 points! " This is the first wine to display any appreciable reduction and it's enough to render the nose unreadable today. By contrast there is good detail to the admirably rich, round and quite firm medium-bodied flavors that possess impressive persistence on the mouth coating, chalky and very serious finish. There is really very good volume here as well as the balance to see this through a decade plus of upside improvement. In a word, excellent."
