Rock-solid, and certainly worthy of your time (and your investment). Truly one of the best Bordeaux efforts in the vintage.

This 7,500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc is one of the strongest wines of the vintage.

One of the top wines of the vintage, the 2004 Angelus (a 7,500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc with a natural alcohol of 13.5%) is a classic, tannic, structured wine exhibiting a saturated dense purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of blackberries and blueberries intermixed with mocha, licorice, and new oak characteristics.

This red Bordeaux has wonderful finesse and a round texture on the palate. Based on Merlot. Drinking well today with dark, fleshy fruit and silky tannins.
