    Smile Genius

    Hello. Would you please explain what "GENIUS" means in this context?
    Does it mean "the essence of flavour/the essence of wine" or something?
    Thank you.

    ----From Le Road Trip by Vivian Swift
    Only six kinds of grapes are legally permitted to be bottled under the name of BORDEAUX.

    Put them together (but never all six at once) and what you get is GENIUS.

    Re: 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.
