Wine Advocate-Parker : Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2007 Bordeaux tasting. The 2007 Sociando-Mallet has a pleasing sense of mineralité and delineation on the nose: nicely focused with attractive rose petal scents. The palate is brisk on the entry with rigid tannin, quite savory with a gravelly, masculine and tobacco finish. It's a little rough around the edges, but it should drink well for the next 5-7 years. Tasted March 2015.
