Idiom ‘B’ – Bordicon Blend 2018
Full and complex. A multi-clone blend of five noble varietals. Explosive and evolving aromas of ripe red currants, tea leaf and cigar box are followed by hints of cinnamon, tobacco and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine of great pedigree that will reward cellaring. Decanting recommended.
