Ratings & Tasting Notes:
99 points James Suckling
A great wine with superb concentration and richness. yet it’s ever so agile and polished. Spices, blueberries, cinnamon and dried flowers. Full body and polished and full tannins. Great length. The refinement to the tannins is amazing. Compacted. Essence-like. Needs five or six years to open. Try in 2025. (2/2018)
97 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
A blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Angelus reveals a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant aromas of crushed red currants, warm plums and pencil shavings with hints of incense, sage, violets and tobacco. Full-bodied, very fine and intense yet exquisitely delicate with wonderful freshness, it has ripe yet firm, very finely grained tannins and an epically long, perfumed finish. With bags of perfume and a captivating plushness, this Angelus is a real head-turner! (LPB) (2/2018)
97 points Wine Enthusiast
This wine is structured, powerful and ripe but also elegant and stylish. Juicy black fruits combine with a dry, structured core to give the wine both its richness and its future. Powered by its fruit and tannins, it has good aging potential. Drink from 2027. *Cellar Selection* (RV) (4/2018)
96 points Wine Spectator
Dense, dark and muscular, featuring waves of warmed fig, plum and black currant paste that roll in with warm ganache, baker’s chocolate and espresso accents. A huge swath of smoldering tobacco is brewing on the finish, which has a brooding feel, thanks to tannins that hit like a thunderclap at the end. If you’ve got time to wait… Best from 2028 through 2045. (JM) (3/2018)
