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!

An unusual combination of varietals, the JCB Leopard brings together a unique balance of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
