(75-$100) Red-ruby. Evolving aromas of roasted red fruits, mocha, cedar and underbrush. Sweet, pliant and nicely fresh in the mouth, with a leathery nuance. Plenty of flavor and shape here. Finishes with strong but fine, horizontal tannins and good grip.

Wine Advocate | 88

Forced to harvest early due to hail, Angelus, surprisingly, has turned out a very good 1999. This wine offers scents of blackberries, licorice, tapenade, and figs. It lacks the length possessed by the great Angelus vintages such as 2000, 1998, 1990, and 1989, but it is ripe, pure, and moderately tannic. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Elegant aromas of dark chocolate, berries, spices and flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Like cashmere. Impressive effort from Angelus, considering part of its crop was hailed. 4,165 cases made.
