Three vintages of unparalleled intrigue, for the sommelier at heart.
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.
The 2015 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot is full-bodied with concentrated deep black cherry, cedar and earthy notes. An uplifting acidity is present on the palate with a beautiful toasted cacao finish.
The 2017 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Merlot is laced with 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.
The 2018 Leviathan boasts an intense mix of fresh boysenberry, black cherry, and plum aromatics. Its earthy elements of our rocky northern California hillsides include bay laurel, sage, cedar, and dry red earth, which speak to its origins. Supple and balanced tannins of this rich wine lead to a long savory finish.
