Wine Critic Reviews:
Amazing wine for the vintage. Black-ruby color. Stupendous aromas of crushed berries, currants, cherries and minerals. Full-bodied, with superconcentration of fruit and wonderfully polished tannins. Goes on and on...
Sokolin 1990 Sociando Mallet Tasting Notes:
Without a doubt, this is one of the finest Sassicaias ever created. Its bluish-purple color reveals its true nature as blue-blood, viticultural royalty. The wine is bold, full-bodied, confident, and powerful, packing enough of a punch to send chills right down your spine. It's a wine that retains much of its youthful vigor and energy, with a captivating nose of super-ripe blackcurrants, tobacco, cedar, and toasted oak. On the palate, you're presented with a beautiful balance of acidity and tannic sweetness, as the ripe fruit dances playfully on your tastebuds. It's so easy to get overwhelmed and immersed as the textural complexities and details puzzle the mind and caress the palate. It's an emotional roller-coaster from start to finish, and that finish is remarkably long and generous. The wine almost drinks itself and will test your self-control as much as it will your experience with wine in general. Absolutely stunning.

For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!|
