Winemaker Notes:

Our 2019 proprietary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Syrah, and Cabernet Franc highlight some of my favorite growing regions in northern California: Coombsville, Red Hills, Moon Mountain, Fountain grove, and the Sierra Foothills.

Tasting Notes:
The 2019 Leviathan boasts an intense mix of fresh boysenberry, black cherry, and plum with cocoa powder, allspice, and nutmeg. Its earthy elements of our rocky California hillsides include bay Laurel, sage, cedar, and dry red earth which speaks to its origins. Supple and balanced tannins of this rich wine lead to a long savory finish with hints of graphite and star anise. It is approachable now and built to cellar. 


95 Points - James Suckling:
"Very pure fruit this year with ripe raspberries and fresh currants throughout. Full-to medium-bodied with soft, polished tannins and bright, clean fruit. It’s really balanced and the finish and makes you want to drink it. Subtle and vivid fruit at the end. Yet, it can improve with age. Blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and petite verdot. Drink or hold." (8/2021)

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Always a value, the 2019 California Red Wine is a juicy, up-front, undeniably delicious red with plenty of red, black, and blue fruits as well as graphite, leafy herbs, and chalky mineral nuances. Medium to full-bodied, pure, balanced, and seamless, it's a no-brainer purchase to enjoy over the coming 8-10 years at a minimum. Drink 2022-2023." (12/21/2021)

92 Points - Vinous:
"The 2019 Leviathan is a fabulous wine from Andy Erickson. Powerful and flamboyant, but somehow not overdone, the 2019 is packed with inky dark red fruit. Blood orange, spice and floral accents add just enough lift to keep things balanced. I very much like the energy here. Drink 2021-2029." -Antonio Galloni (Sept 2021)
