2004 Ch. Sociando Mallet

A dry red wine with deep purple colour and significant legs. It has on nose quite pronounced aromas of blackcurrant, black plum, blueberries, smoke, licorice, vanilla and trace of earthy, violet and mint. Medium acidity and alcohol. Fuller than medium body with medium ripe and sweet tannin. Medium intensity flavours of black cherry, vanilla with herbaceous and floral notes. Medium length with black cherry finish. (90) Quite complex on nose but still enjoyable.
