Deep ruby red in appearance. Rich and dark nose with layers of black plums, cassis, black pepper, violet undertone and a bit of minerality. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Layered palate with graphite, black cassis, violets and baking spices. Long, lingering and dry finish. Drink till 2045.

Good, but not as great as some others-wanted more silk on the palate

My first wine of an incredible tasting! A beautiful nose of plump roasted red and black plums, dark chocolate, black pepper, spice and touch of oak. The palate opens up to a velvet texture that is tight but has a core of black fruits and wet stone surrounded by a savory component that holds on to a long finish. #mwtasting

First bottle of the top wine of Angelus. Gave it a solid 7 hour decant. Out of control delicious. Amazing franc-dominated nose and an endless finish. Best wine I’ve ever had.

The muscle of the evening. Beautiful dark fruit & youthful Bordeaux spice & tobacco notes on the nose. Structured, but accessible with some air. Fantastic showing.

Yeah yah I know...it's too young. But man this is rocking stuff. Put this with some 100pt 2010 Cali stuff and it showed them to the door. Might take 20years for this to really show what it has but it's close to perfect now. 97+ 5-10years it's 100pt wine every day
