A massive powerful Angelus this wine exhibits a saturated black/ruby/purple color as well as an impressively-endowed nose of dried herbs roasted meats new saddle leather plum liqueur and cassis. In the mouth olive notes make an impression. This sweet full-bodied exceptionally concentrated wine is atypically backward and ferociously tannic. It was revealing more sweetness and forwardness immediately prior to bottling but I would now recommend 7-8 years of cellaring. Anticipated Maturity: 2007-2025. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Complex and intense aromas of forest floor, wild berries and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with ultrasilky tannins and a long, long finish. Racy and classy. Wonderful now but has a long life ahead of it. Better than I remember. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1996 Angelus 15000ml
