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