Product Overview

37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Syrah, 24% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc.
The goal is simple: to produce one singular red wine each vintage. Drawing on vineyard sources across California, Winemaker Andy Erickson looks to create a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Merlot.

Leviathan grew out of the vineyards that are the source of the Favia wines produced by Andy Erickson and Annie Favia. In 2004, after creating the blends for Favia, Andy started a new blending process using various components from nearly all of their vineyard sources—Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Quickly the concept began to take shape: to create one distinctive red wine per vintage, drawn from all four of these varieties, that would highlight the best of California, and take on a character all its own. Since then, we have slowly expanded our vineyard sources, remaining true to the goal of producing a rich, delicious red blend every year. - Producer's website.

Andy Erickson's Leviathan is gorgeous once again in 2013. Plump, juicy and forward, the 2013 packs a serious punch. Still it is impossible not to notice that this year Leviathan is made in a more aromatic, lifted style than in the past, when the wine has been much more bombastic. Readers looking for a supple, exuberant Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine that requires little cellaring should check out the 2013 Leviathan.
