Tasting Notes Angelus 2005

98

This 7,000 case blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc will rival or perhaps eclipse vintages such as 2000, 1998, 1990, and 1989. Its dense purple color is followed by an extraordinary perfume of charcoal, espresso roast, blackberries, blueberries, and a hint of wood. In spite of its thick texture, terrific acidity, high tannins, and enormous intensity as well as richness, it is surprisingly approachable, but given how slowly the 1989 and 1990 have aged, I would recommend cellaring it for 8-10 years. It should keep for three decades. A brilliant wine!

Beautifully focused notes of figs and ripe fruit on the nose, this is very perfumed. A lot of material in this wine, the center palate is incredible, lasting for minutes. This is full-bodied and super silky with fine tannins. A pinpointed ball of fruit, think lychee, and hints of chocolate on the finish. Leave this for six to eight years, should be about right in 2018.

The 2005 Angelus is a little more open than previous bottles. Lifted dark cherry, boysenberry and plum fruit with a slight tinny undercurrent and then that black olive tincture. The palate is medium-bodied with a lactic, chocolaty entry. Sweet and generous, though missing a little tension on the finish. Spicy and feral, this Angelus need several years taming in bottle. Side by side, I am beginning to prefer the 2009. Tasted December 2012.
