The Leopard Reviews
A blend of 49% Syrah, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc aged for 20 months in 41% new French oak, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Leopard leaps from the glass with a lifted perfume of red roses, lavender and violets over a core of warm cassis and preserved plums with hints of star anise, eucalyptus and molten chocolate. The palate is full-bodied, rich and spicy with a plush, velvety texture, generous fruit and a long perfumed finish. 198 cases produced.
