Idiom Bordeaux Style Blend 2012
Full and complex. A multi-clone blend of noble varietals. Intriguing aromas of tea leaf and sweet red fruits followed by hints of cayenne pepper, pencil shavings and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine of great pedigree that will reward cellaring.
