Quick Overview

Details

Leviathan is a red wine of the vintage from legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, the former winemaker for Screaming Eagle. With two 100pt wines and numerous additional accolades under his belt, Andy is recognized as one of Napa’s premier winemakers. Leviathan began in 2004 as a passion project. Andy wanted to take all of his winemaking experience and vineyard knowledge from around California and create a single red wine that was free from the restraints of appellations and varietals. This is winemaking without restriction.

Tasting Notes: Seductive black cherry, blackberry and currant fruits laced with cocoa nib, sweet baking spices and cigar box with silky texture and a long, savory finish.

Sourcing: Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Hills, Moon Mountain) Syrah (Dry Creek Valley) Cabernet Franc (Los Carneros) Merlot (Moon Mountain, Coombsville)

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

James Suckling - 94pts
James Suckling - A rich, very fruity red with mocha, chocolate, plums and terracotta. Full body, round, juicy tannins and a solid, flavorful finish. A blend of syrah, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Drink or hold.

Jeb Dunnuck - 94pts
Jeb Dunnuck - Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Syrah brought up in 25% new French oak, the 2017 California Red Wine sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as a rich, powerful, opulent style that certainly puts a smile on your face. Notes of currants, chocolate, spice box, and earthy, herbal notes all emerge from this sexy, seamless effort that has full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and outstanding finish. It’s a smoking value to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years.
