Idiom Bordeaux Style Blend 2014

R396.00

Full and complex. A multi-clone blend of noble varieties. Intriguing aromas of ripe black cherries, leather and tea leaf are followed by hints of cedar wood, mulberries and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine with great pedigree that will reward cellaring.

61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
