Reviews for 1996 Angelus Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2007
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.

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.
