Known as the "impossible wine" because of the
steepness of the land from which its fruit was grown, presence of
underground, rocky seams and outcrops that were thought to be
insurmountable. In keeping with the traditional varieties of Bordeaux,
this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet
Franc and Petit Verdot.
It features brooding restrained fruit characters of red currant,
blackberry, bramble, pink peppercorn and sage leaf with complexing
savoury elements of clove, cedar and cigar box. Suppleness on the palate
combines with a defined ferrous character and flavours of berry compote,
smoked meats, Szechuan pepper and cocoa nib. The silky texture winds
through rustic yet regal tannins on the poised youthful palate.
