Leopard

Red Blend
Description

An inspiration from the wild, the Leopard is UNTAMEABLE. Comprised of the three elements… this wine brings together vine, earth and water in an exotic blend. It is mysterious and wild, the EXOTIC and the SAUVAGE, the harmonious balance of earth and freshness.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Enticing on the nose with aromas of black currant, blackberry, and herbs de Provence.

Palate: 

this wine delights with notes of cedar and sweet plum which dazzle the palate. With a rich, yet velvety-smooth tannin structure, this wine will intrigue for years to come.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The Leopard is an uncommon Napa Valley blend with enticing energy and heart. The lush, velvety femininity of the Cabernet Sauvignon unites with the animalistic spice and power of Syrah. It is rich and dense, while delicate and feminine… It is wild and harmonious!
