Chateau Sociando-Mallet 2012
55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Just north of Saint-Estephe’s Chateau Montrose and right up there with the best classified crus from the Medoc. Especially impressive considering this wine has never been classified! Softer from the start so ready to drink now, but can age beautifully for 10+ Years. Deep ruby/purple color with good acid and sweet, ripe tannins.
