Leopards Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Leopards Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Full-bodied, barrel-matured, capturing the best of Old and New World styles. Prominent dark fruit aromas of mulberry and blackberry, underlined by subtle old spice nuances, such as nutmeg and cinnamon. Palate: Dark fruit aromas follow through onto a supple palate with well integrated oak tannins, ensuring fullness and a lingering finish.

Enjoy this wine with rich red meat dishes such as beef bourguignon and oxtail. Savour with fruit-cake or other desserts containing hints of cinnamon or cloves.
