Purchased on release. Decanted, rebottled, and served 5 hours later. A slumbering bear better left to hibernate until 2015. Massive structure and frame undergirding a freight car loaded with chocolate cherry, smoky black currant, and tar. The alcohol is prominent in the nose, but the concentration and power is handled by a cooling reservoir of seemingly endless depth, as lava flowing into Lake Superior. Robed in midnight blue, this is long, this is tannic of high grade, and this is balanced. And to be clear..., not over-ripe or fat. Huge, dense flow -- that is the imagery. 96 may be an understatement.

A recent vertical tasting of this Chateau demonstrated just how fabulous the peaks of Angelus? performance can be in vintages like 89, 90, 98 and 00. I remember leaving that tasting w/ an impression that they would never make a wine that could rival the 00 in terms of richness, depth and sheer decadence. The 2005 just pulverized my theory in as leveling a fashion as any! Angelus is a staggeringly mammoth wine in 2005 that nearly overwhelms the senses with its volcanic layers of fruit, tenacity of attack and sheer hedonism. This is a pure femme fatale of a wine that is the dry red wine?s answer to drinking Sauternes w/ a bucket of foie gras. Wines like this remind me that it perfection is possible when unbridled pleasure is harnessed into equilibrium

Somewhat restrained nose but with definite cr?me de cassis and smoky oak. Super tight on the nose and palate, but with a massive underlying power and structure. Built for serious cellaring.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
