Idiom Bordeaux Style Blend 2014
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.
