Chateau Sociando-Mallet, Haut-Medoc, France

Characteristics
Grapes: 40% Merlot, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Caberbnet Franc
The deep ruby Sociando Mallet is a very classy wine with intense aromas of violets, cassis, blackberries and plums, echoed on the palate by amazing layers of generous fruit flavours, lifted by ripe, dense tannins.

Tasting notes
a good medium deep ( you can see your fingers on the glass stem through the core of the wine ) ruby core with narrow rim. The aromas on this wine are more fresh fruit - baked and black, but spice also plays its part. On tasting it - silky mouth-coating and textural with flavours of black ( more than red) fruits, spice, cedar with a little stalky ( green) edge, the acidity is fresh and zippy keeping this wine light and elegant, and the alcohol seemed lower than previous wines but at a good body enrobing level, or maybe better integrated already? This wine really improved with food, it seemed extremely well knitted together, balanced, elegant and one to keep for 5-10 years at least.
