90-92

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 78

Saturated ruby-red. Expressive, floral aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, toffee, licorice and chocolate; suggests an almost roasted ripeness. Chocolatey and very dense in the mouth; rather tightly wrapped today but still much broader than the '97. Finishes very long, with substantial tongue-coating tannins. Powerful and impressive for the vintage.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 122

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.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Promises more in its color and nose than it gives on the palate, but a very, very good glass of wine nonetheless. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and lots of berry and chocolate character. Just a slight lack of fruit in the center-palate keeps it from outstanding.

barely held it's own amongst thirty 1996's; some classic tobacco and cedar, a bit of tar on the palate along with the medium depth of fruit. Enjoyable but slightly short, wouldn't wait long.
