The Leopard's Leap Classic Collection Cabernet Sauvignon inspires in the bouquet with its wonderful notes of dark fruits, especially mulberries and blackberries are very prominent. Light oak notes and spicy undertones such as nutmeg and cinnamon skillfully round off the multi-faceted interplay of aromas. This impression continues on the palate. Here the red wine, which partially has matured for one year in French oak, convinces with well integrated tannins and a soft mouthfeel, before it leaves with a long lasting finish. The Leopard's Leap Classic Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful red wine for all those who love it strong in character. The wine tastes particularly delicious in combination with hearty poultry such as duck. Also the interaction with well marbled beef or game offers highest drinking pleasure.
