Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Open for nearly an hour and the nose is closed for business. Medium/Heavy body and flavors coming through tho. Blackberry. Big cherry/plum combination. Choco cake. Hint o’ mint. Obsequious richness front-end loaded with the ample tannins jumping into the hot tub at the midway point. The best thing about this young pup is the balance. Could still go for a little more on the back end but the first two-thirds is so nice, I’ve laminated a hall pass with its’ name on it. — 3 days ago

Bodegas Emilio Moro

Malleolus Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Winery is family-run & has links with the wine world going back 3 generations. Founded by Emilio Moro who was born in Pesquera de Duero, a prominent Spanish wine area. Made from grapes of old vineyards, between 25 and 75 years old, from the Camino Viejo estate. Malleolus is a Latin word meaning “small hammer or mallet” used in planting, and “majuelo” Spanish for “young vine” a traditional way of referring to a vineyard in Pesquera del Duero. Deep red subtle fruit aromas with espresso and smoky notes. Blackberry & cherry with vanilla spice on full lush tannins needing more time. Well balanced, complex, lingering with earthy finish. — 3 years ago

La Demoiselle de Sociando-Mallet Jean Gautreau Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

2018 vintage. Solid balance of fruit and structure for the $20 range. Currently grippy but give it 3-5 years and this should be really nice for the price. Will pick up a few more bottles for guilt-free drinking while the big boys slumber — a month ago

LaFleur Mallet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Yes yes yes. I know I’m like a kid with a cup of hit chocolate, but I just love sweet wines. Hints of citrus. But if acid balances the sweetness really well. Paired best with bold blue cheese than more gentle flavors. — 4 years ago
