Hello. Would you please explain what "GENIUS" means in this context?
Does it mean "the essence of flavour/the essence of wine" or something?
----From Le Road Trip by Vivian Swift
Only six kinds of grapes are legally permitted to be bottled under the name of BORDEAUX.
CABERNET SAUVIGNON, MERLOT, , CABERNET FRANC, PETIT VERDOT, MALBEC, and CARMENERE
Put them together (but never all six at once) and what you get is GENIUS.
She's not writing literally. I think she probably means, "Putting them together in such a way that a superior wine results requires genius, or is an act of genius." If I selected a few of those grapes and put them together, it's unlikely the result would be genius. That doesn't even mean anything.
