The wines of Sociando-Mallet are characterized by a very deep and dark color, complex aromas of little red fruits and a well-integrated fine oaky touch. They are full-bodied, straight and elegant, with a lot of freshness and depth.
"This accessible, yet tannic example of Sociando-Mallet possesses a deep ruby/purple color, and excellent aromatics consisting of jammy black cherries, blackberries, and cassis, as well as subtle notes of minerals, earth, and new oak. This is a deep, long, muscular, tannic wine that is structurally similar to the 1996. Patience will be required from purchasers of this high class wine. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025."
