Idiom Bordeaux Style Blend 2015

R495.00

In Stock

Full and complex. A multi-clone blend of five noble varieties. Explosive and evolving aromas of ripe black berries, leather and pencil crayon shavings are followed by hints of cedar wood, tobacco and trademark cassis character. A serious, tightly packed wine with a long lingering finish. A wine with great pedigree that will reward cellaring. Decanting recommended.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec
